Lakaz Maman | Mauritian street kitchen

A Mauritian street kitchen 

Last weekend i had the pleasure to experience Shelina Permalloo new breakfast menu at her first Mauritian style street kitchen restaurant in Southampton. The 2012 master chef winner was a great host who opened the doors to us for her delicious menu. This kindly organised Bloggers Brunch was with @sotonbloggers. we did a small Q&A with Shelina and it was interesting to learn how herself and her husband started from scratch with The restaurant and pratically designed and decorated the place themselves. Shelina's personality shines through The restaurant with the vibrant decor that bursts with colour, it gives that feeling of being in her home.

Cinnamon toast with tropical fruit and salted caramel sauce.

Shelina has published two cook books since winning Master Chef which were available to purchase on the day of the event. 

Ready..steady.. take a photo before it gets cold!

I ordered the cinnamon toast with tropical fruit and salted caramel sauce drizzled on the top. Honestly this was the best toast I have ever tasted! The flavours were sweet and refreshing. We were given two drinks to try from the menu, mango and lime iced tea and the "Alooda", a vanilla and coconut milk drink with basil seeds. The perfect island style refresher. 

I love this wall 

How do you like your eggs in the morning!? 

We were kindly given a goody bag each with a mango and lime chilli sauce, curry powder and some tropical granola. All of these items are made, blended and mixed on the premises in the Lakaz Maman "mamas house" kitchen. So if you would like to pop on down to try the amazing food, head to Lakaz Maman, 22 bedford place, Southampton. Enjoy the food you won't regret it!

How to Declutter your Home and Keep it that Way

Time to declutter What helps me destress, be productive and keep myself organised is getting rid of all the bits and bobs i keep laying around the house. Yes, that drawer full of crap and all the kids toys that keep mounting up after Christmas and birthdays. I start with 4 bags; charity, selling, friends/family and bin. You don't have to do all of these in one day, pick a room or an area for one afternoon while the baby sleeps and the toddler is settled with snacks and a colouring book and get busy. *Rooms* Bathroom- the cabinets, products you dont use or are out of date, bath toys, etc... Kitchen- food packaging, out of date products, pots and pans you don't use or need to replace Living room- the mounting of paper work hidden in drawers, kids toys, shoes, etc... Dining room- ( same as above) Bedroom- clothes you don't wear, brought but never used, old bed, bedroom drawers and tables, worn out shoes (good quality shoes can be repaired fairly cheaply s

Money saving Hacks | Christmas | 2020 edition |

It's that time of the year...   Remembering all the kids Christmas activities, nursery and school nativity plays, Christmas gift shopping, scheduling friends and family to come over during the holidays, teacher gifts, phonics, cooking the Turkey....   1- Plan Christmas a year to 6 months in advance  I know this sounds nuts but honestly knowing what is happening and who you're visiting makes it a lot easier and less stressful.  2- Buy gifts in the boxing day and January sales. Buy and stock up throughout the year on all the sales. It's amazing how much money you can save by doing this. I manage to save up to £200/£300 by doing this each year.  3- The things you don't think of buying in those sales. Wrapping paper, christmas cards, tape, gift tags, gift bags, Christmas arts and crafts for the kids, stickers, advent calendars (the non-chocolate ones) I brought the Harry Potter charms bracelet advent calendar and frozen 2 advent calendar in Sainsburys

5 creative ways to make extra money

1- sell unwanted items Is it time to do a clear out? Need a little extra money? Sell those trousers you've not worn in 3 months and sell the dress you've only worn twice.  Make sure all items are washed, no marks and no rips etc... these are all things that will help you in the selling process. Take lots of photos of the items, compare on other selling sites to make sure you check out your competitors. Good places to sell are facebook pages, Ebay, depop, Amazon, car boot sale and friends or family  2- creative skills  Are you creative with woodwork, clay, jewellery making, etc... if so put these hobbies into a place online and sell them! Don't forget to charge for materials, hours per day, time to take photos and uploading,etc. 3- teach another language  If you have a second language then good on you, another skill to write down on your cv! Launch a new website of what you can provide, zoom language classes, work sheets, online courses, etc. Make it clear on what you can pr
