about me.

Hello. I'm Emily!

I'm a 29 year old North Leicestershire girl, back living in the Leicestershire countryside after time spent in Sheffield and Leicester.

I studied MA Print Journalism at the University of Sheffield and now work as an Online Copywriter whilst food blogging in my spare time. That, and spending far too much time on Instagram drooling over other people's food and choosing filters for my own.

I like to try out new recipes, ingredients and foodie products, review restaurants and explore farmers' markets and food fairs. I've loved collaborating with some of my favourite brands and having featured recipes and reviews online. I also write regular restaurant reviews for my regional newspaper, the Leicester Mercury.

Hope you enjoy reading and hopefully making some of my ideas or visiting the lovely food and drink places I've been. Get in touch if you've been somewhere you think I'd like, eaten something you think I'd love or found a recipe I might want to try. 

Loves; Good sugary cups of tea, getting my five a day, sushi and Bakewell tarts. 
Dislikes; Odd numbers, diet coke and washing up.

All photographs and illustrations on my blog are taken or drawn by myself, so please do not use them without asking. If you like my illustrations and would like something drawn for your blog, I would be happy to help out!
