I hope you all had great weekend. And with weather like this I wouldn’t be surprised if you have the ‘Monday blues’. With 4 more days to Valentine’s day, I hope you all have something exciting planned for your loved ones, even if it might just be cuddling in front of the TV…

Wishing you all a great week ahead!

Friday Inspiration

Happy Friday! I’d like to take a quick moment here to thank you all for your support. I’ve had a great first week of blogging and I’m so overwhelmed with all these likes and shares. I hope you will continue to do so.

Valentine’s day being  only a week away, I wanted to post something around the theme of love for all you lovely people. It’s not like I’m a Valentine’s day believer. But considering how busy we have gotten off late, it seems meaningful to at least take a day off and appreciate all the love around you.

So here are some amazing recipes you could try
