30 before 30

Why is it that the jump from your 20s to your 30s is the most terrifying? It certainly is for me anyway. Am I where I should be? Have I really lived my 20s to the fullest? It’s all just a continuous question. August 8th, 2020 I will hit the big 3-0. It has terrified me since the day I hit 22 to be perfectly frank with you. Something my mum says to me suddenly resonates in my mind.

“It’s better than the alternative babe”

Right she is. It is better than the alternative, whatever that may be (I like to imagine some kind of paradise where Spurs actually win the league and I can eat all the calories I want, surrounded with all the Pomeranians I can dream of).

12 Hours in Amsterdam

Last weekend Mr. PL and I went on a five-day cruise for my lovely Dad’s 50th birthday. One of the day stops was Amsterdam. I have visited once before but I was only 17 at the time and so I was only interested in sleeping in, staying up all night and laughing at the risque souvenirs.

Madhav – Riverside

My obsession with Indian cuisine is seriously getting out of hand. Only a mere two days after my trip to Kimi’s Indian Rajasthani food truck I found myself stood outside Madhav’s window, gazing in like Kevin Mcallister into the toy store window. Madhav is my idea of total heaven. A supermarket and a street food cafe combined, you can pick up your spices and ingredients in one side of the store and then stumble into the other for some freshly made, piping hot street food. I did just that.

Jacob’s Market, Cardiff Central

It’s January, it’s cold, I’m supposed to be in the gym and drinking kale smoothies but if there is one thing that makes January even glummer than it already is, it’s me trying to pour my post-Christmas arse into pre-Christmas gym leggings. So, I threw January traditions straight out the window and decided to get my steps in at Jacob’s Market instead.

Cardiff Farmer’s Market – Riverside

Originally known as Riverside market, Cardiff Farmer’s Market was established way back in 1998 and is now run by the wonderful people at Riverside Real Food. Riverside Real Food now runs various events across the city but the farmers market has to be my absolute favourite. Located along the Fitzhamon Embankment overlooking the Principality Stadium (MUST NOT CALL IT THE MILLENIUM) you would struggle to find many other markets with the Produce it has plus this sort of view to boot!
