Italian food equals yum. Part 1

So I can guarantee that a recurring subject on this blog will undoubtedly be food! I love food. A lot. It’s always going to be a bit of a battle for me to not over-indulge, as I can resist anything but temptation (thank you Oscar Wilde). But I’m never going to deny myself the pleasure of eating good food and enjoying it. It’s part of who I am. It’s my thing. I plan the next meal whilst I’m still eating the meal in front of me and continually hunt for the new restaurant or cafe to try out. I’ve been brought up in a family who like to eat and it becomes a pass-time and social event in my calendar.

Luckily my best friends and hubby enjoy eating nearly as much as I do, so I get to enjoy foody experiences with them too. I just don’t think we’d have a successful marriage if hubby was a picky eater. In fact, after 10 years of vegetarianism, he played a large part in introducing me to food I hadn’t eaten in a long time, including steak! Rare steak! From one end of the spectrum to the other. I do try to eat and buy food responsibly where I can, so I definitely don’t lack in morals when it comes to food. No fois-gras for me!

Holly goes lightly…an introduction

So I’m Holly and I’ve decided to write a blog. This blog is going to be about things that inspire me, things that I think are cool, things that I experience that I think are worth sharing , things that make me happy and a few bits in between. I guess you could call it a lifestyle blog…maybe. I’m not sure yet. I’ll let you decide that. Cue Hollygoeslightly.co.uk (sharp intake of breath!)…

I like to keep things light, informal and fun. I try not to take things too seriously and I really enjoy finding and looking at awesome stuff. Some of that stuff, I’ll talk about here, because hopefully other people will think it’s awesome too.
