We like to be inspired.


This blog articles on this page are where we can just muse about experiences or people that have inspired us to really live more. They also give us an outlet to express what makes us smile and give us joy. It’s been really worthwhile writing these down, as we sometimes have times when we need to re-read them ourselves:)

We all need continued inspiration, to stay on track, and the products that help do that are on our 3 things each day  page- it’s where I can keep quick links to things we buy regularly to live this way. (It’s also where I park up inspiring things that I would love to buy but haven’t had a chance to yet).

What makes you smile?

It could be as simple as a childhood sweet.

If you are Swizzels love heart fan like us, you will understand our wee reference here! The little sayings that come on each sweet make us smile. So you might see this sign dotted around the blog as a sign of showing things we like or love.

You inspire us too

We’re inspired every day, by many or you, so we’ll share the stories, experiences, and quotes that resonate with us. We also see what is bought on Amazon through our links and your inspirations sometimes end up being ours too!

( We don’t know who buys what, but maybe that one of your best buys in the button below!)

You can read more about our journey on ourDAILY MANTRA here, and you can stay in touch with us here.

We love great food & cooking… & simplifying life.

We want to help you find the right tools to cook better. But we’re all suffering from information and salesmen overload online!  So… we want to simplify and clarify it,  so you can make faster and better choices.

We’re professional, honest, authentic. We owned the No. 1 restaurant in Marrakech for over 8 years – we understand cooking, hospitality, and customer satisfaction.

Our daily mantra is to eat well, cook better, live more.
