    A to Z Blogging Challenge: B is for Broken Heels

    Welcome back to my A to Z Blogging Challenge for 2019. I’m currently trying to write 1000 words per day, every day in April, with the theme of my wish list, but yesterday didn’t go as well as I’d hoped. I managed about 750, but that’s still pretty good. That was my A is for Abbey Road piece which you can read here. Today, I’m moving on to writing B is for Broken Heels. You might think that sounds like a weird thing to put on my wish list, but bear with me. It’s not as weird as it sounds because Broken Heels is the name of my new blog.…

    A to Z Blogging Challenge 2019: My Index of Posts

    I’ve been participating in the A to Z Blogging Challenge this year, which is a challenge that happens every year in April. Participants sign up to write a blog following an A to Z theme of their choice every day in April, making 26 posts and having a break on Sundays. This year, my theme is the A to Z of My Wishlist, or basically what I daydream about. There’s a mix of travel, beauty, fashion, food and personal blogging here. If you’d rather check out my A to Z of Nanowrimo, you can see it on my author site, www.laceydearie.com. A is for Abbey Road B is for Broken…

    A to Z Blogging Challenge 2019: A is for Abbey Road

    Welcome to my A to Z Blogging Challenge posts for 2019. It’s going to be an interesting month for me as I try to squeeze out 1000 words per day (except Sundays, of course) about things that are on my wish list. This could mean things I want to do, things I want to see, places I want to visit or experiences I wish I could have. So, there might be travel posts, book posts, lifestyle articles – anything that takes my fancy. These blogs will be interspersed with my usual reviews and business stuff, so normal service is continuing, just with a little bit extra. Today is A for…

    Quick and Easy Lamb Bhuna Recipe

    There was a time when I didn’t enjoy cooking. I was more of an eat-to-live kind of person and it’s only since my son has started to take an interest in joining me in the kitchen that I’ve begun to enjoy preparing meals. Today I want to share a recipe that I’ve been making for a few years now, for lamb bhuna. This is a dish I first tried out when I was pregnant and preparing meals to freeze for those difficult “babymoon” days when your mind is mush and you need something quick and simple that you can remove from the freezer. So, here is my recipe, which takes…

    The A to Z Blogging Challenge 2019 – Theme Reveal

    I first participated in the A to Z Blogging Challenge back in 2014. I had seen other bloggers posting about it the previous year and it seemed like fun, but of course, by the time I had learned about the challenge, it was too late for me to participate. So, in 2014 I got really organised and had 26 posts ready to roll before April even began and I blogged about the A to Z of Lingerie. Last year, I tried to participate again but there was too much going on for me to focus. I didn’t have 26 posts ready and prepared before the challenge started and I was…
