Sweet Treat Delivery Services

I'm amazed by the number of companies offering sweet treat deliveries at the moment, so I've compiled a list of various different offerings I've come across, in case anyone is feeling as overwhelmed as I am! This was inspired by @Bristolian Foodie who recently did one of these but for Beer delivery services - check it out if you're after a different kind of pick me up.

As we can't be with our loved ones at the moment, I'm really enjoying sending my friends little surprises in the post to remind them of how loved they are - and it's always a plus to be able to support a small business in the process!

These are mainly based off accounts I follow on Instagram (@foodie_megan - shameless plug) so there's a lot of South West / Birmingham / Edinburgh stores, but if you know a business that should be featured here, feel free to DM me or drop me an email at

Let me know if you end up ordering from any of these places, I'd love to see pics of what you get.

(Note: I'll keep updated this as things change so keep checking back! This is correct to the best of my knowledge at the time of posting, but given the nature of the situation, things can change pretty quickly at the moment so make sure you're checking things for yourself too)

Megan's Cookies

I've recently gotten into the habit of spending my Sunday afternoons baking some sweet treats for the team I'm working with in the following week, to keep morale up and mostly just gives me an excuse to keep baking even though I live alone! So far I've done a lemon drizzle cake, chocolate orange chip cake and brownies, but this week's cookies were just too good not to share - if you like gooey cookies à la Millie's Cookies, you might want to try this out!

Where to Eat in Birmingham

Going out to eat is one of my favourite things to do when I'm spending time with my friends, celebrating something, need cheering up about something, I'm bored and fancy getting out and about... Literally any excuse! I've been going to uni in Birmingham now for 3 years and have been to loads of different places around the city, so I thought I would take the time to share some of my favourite places to go as I come to the end of my time here.

Birthday Brunching

I recently turned 21, and I decided that for my birthday, I wanted to get all of my favourite people together to celebrate, as it's the last excuse I have to do it until my wedding really! Having divorced parents, there's people from either side of my family who haven't seen each other in almost 20 years at this point, so I was quite nervous about how it would be, especially with friends from all corners of my life there too, but it was such a lovely day.

Resolutions Review

On 19th December 2016 at 00:33 I made a note on my phone of my new year's resolutions for 2017. I don't use my notes app all too often so I'd actually forgotten about the list completely until I went to do the same for 2018, but I thought it would be interesting to go through and review to see whether I'd actually achieved any of my resolutions or not.

Venetian Vistas

Okay this time it's not me trying to come up with a fun blog title, this was actually the name of our itinerary

I went through a stage a while ago where I was uploading Instagrams from all sorts of fun places for a week straight and in case you didn't know, that's because I went on a cruise with my best friend. The cruise itself is going to have its own separate post because that was An Experience, but I thought I would do a post first about the actual places we went to.
