My New Roots - A glorious foodie blog, which started in 2007 by Sarah. It’s one of my favourite places to find edible inspiration because Sarah and I share a very similar mantra. Sarah has a deep love of whole foods and lots of her recipes are based on stunning, fresh ingredients such as avocados, sweet potatoes and cocoa. One of my favourite recipes is Sarah’s Raw Salted Caramel Apple Dip. My kids absolutely love it and it’s great to keep in the fridge for snack time.

WeHeart - A fantastic place to explore the intersections between arts and culture, and lifestyle and living and travel. It’s the first website I dig into when I’ve booked a trip to somewhere new. WeHeart has quirky hotel suggestions and delicious restaurant recommendations.

Get The Gloss - My go-to beauty fix. It offers great writing, expert advice and recommendations. I like to stay true to a few beauty products, which I have been using for years but Get the Gloss is a great place to catch up on all the health and beauty news. You can also chat live with the beauty editors, which I think is a really unique, personal touch.

BBC Good Food - A great place to find recipes that are guaranteed to work. It has a huge range of accurate dishes. Everything from slow-cooked to speedy suppers.

Relentless Laundry - A hilarious insight into home making from a witty mother’s perspective. This blog has me laughing out loud and is a must for those who think that they are alone in not loving every single thing about motherhood.

Donna Hay - I have always loved Donna Hay. Her website is filled with stunning recipes, craft ideas and photography. I am inspired by her use of textures in her photography; at first glance they look effortlessly chic but in reality, they are works of art. I particularly love some of her ideas such as Donna’s chalk board mats. They allow me to write a personal message to each guest but also keep my girls doodling and entertained even when the food is finished.
