Supersized (and calorific) French Toast from Olive magazine

As we kick off the 7th series of The Great British Bake Off, we’re turning our hands and hearts to the kitchen! Here’s how Sarah from Modern Bric a Brac got on with an indulgent peanut brittle, peanut butter and raspberry jam French Toast recipe from her Olive magazine subscription

The photo made it look sensational and, just like some other recipes I’d found in Olive magazine, completely unknown to me. Cue my blundering attempt to re-create a super-sized French Toast with peanut butter and raspberry jam filling.peanut butter jelly french toast

Why You Need to Visit Berlin

Fancy a city break with a difference? Daisy of ‘Pretty Green Tea’ blog gives us her top tips for a trip to Berlin inspired by her Lonely Planet magazine subscription

Every month my postie drops the latest copy of my Lonely Planet magazine subscription through my letterbox. I always save the magazine for a sunny day so I can sit outside and read it without any interruptions. It’s a wonderful magazine filled with stunning photography and interesting articles. I’m always left planning my next trip away and I’ve built up quite the bucket list over the last few months.

Fitness Routines Created With a Touch of Inspiration From Women’s Health

Have the Rio Olympics got you thinking about your own fitness routine? Chantelle of ‘Mama Mummy Mum’ blog finds inspiration with her Women’s Health magazine subscription

The last time I posted I was discussing my love of Women’s Health magazine and just how it inspired me to not only improve my eating habits but giving me ideas on changing up my exercise routine, keeping me motivated. So in this post I thought I would share with you my own fitness routines in the hope that I might in turn inspire a few of you to perhaps get exercising or pushing yourselves further.

Exercising Monday, Wednesday and Friday and then going for a run on a Sunday.

9 Women to Watch | The Rio Olympics 2016

On the eve of the 2016 Rio Olympic Games, we’ve rounded up a group of women to watch for their sheer sporting prowess and undeniable talent. From home turf Brazilian talent in Volleyball to the first woman to ever wear a hijab in the Olympic games, 2016 is set to be an exciting year for this group of Olympic hopefuls…

Katie Ledecky, 19

Sport: Swimming

Odds to win a medal: 1/4

Team: USA

Why you need to watch her: She’s tipped as unbeatable. Insiders have said it’s not a case of whether she’ll win, but by how much. Her speed is matched by her endurance too; she’s just as fast swimming the 200m as well as the 800m. That’s the equivalent of a runner winning a 100m sprint and a long distance 5000m run – and unheard of in the sport.

Did you know? Katie is one of the tallest swimmers in her field, standing at a stately 6ft tall.

A Summer Salad from Women’s Fitness Magazine

Looking for a creative Summer salad to munch on whilst you watch the Rio Olympics? Rebecca of ‘All About You’ blog gets inspired with a strawberry salad in Women’s Fitness magazine

One of things that you would expect in an issue of Women’s Fitness is exercise advice and workouts. One other thing that was a pleasant surprise – the delicious and healthy recipes in the issue. I love looking for new recipes all the time, so this was perfect as there was plenty to try.

Country Living’s Homemade Iced Tea

Around this time of year there’s nothing quite so lovely as sitting in your garden, the sun on your back and a glass of something chilled in your hand. Georgia of Love on the Wall blog is enjoying the little things, embracing slow living and loving her Country Living magazine subscription with a glass of homemade flavoured iced tea. Cheers!

I think it’s important to admire the beauty of the nature around us sometimes. My parents had hopped off on a plane to America for a holiday, so I was in charge of watering the plants for a few days. They take great care of their garden and it is beautiful all year round. Although I’m not one for clearing out the chicken coops, I loved admiring the nature a little more being in charge of watering the garden. Noticing little juicy green tomatoes forming on the plants and bright red strawberries from the hanging basket I got my dad for Father’s Day.

Bright & Beautiful – Harpers Bazaar Magazine Review
