Making the Most of Breakfast


Breakfast is by far my favourite meal of the day - I don't think I've ever skipped breakfast in my life and I like to leave a good half hour in the morning for a leisurely breakfast, regardless of what time I need to be out of the house. For me, breakfast sets me up for what sort of day I'm going to have - I know if I don't put much effort into my breakfast then I'm probably not going to have a very productive day. I like to try and make it tasty, but healthy, as eating a healthy breakfast means I'm more likely to keep up good eating habits throughout the day.


I realise that we don't always have time to make a big deal out of breakfast (unless like me you get up early especially for it which I imagine isn't all that common!), but I do think it's nice to make a bit of a thing of it when you can so that you feel healthy, positive and motivated for the day ahead. So when the lovely people at Amara kindly offered to send me some home bits I knew it was breakfast I wanted to focus on to make it as visually pleasing (surprisingly not just for Instagram, but for myself) and enjoyable as possible.


Being currently without a kitchen (although not for much longer hopefully - watch this space) breakfast options are limited, but luckily one of my favourite breakfasts is granola. I usually make my own, but being without an oven means I've had to shell out and buy a few packets. As I mentioned, I like my breakfasts to be as healthy as possible so fruit is a must. My go to breakfast at the moment is greek yogurt with granola, fruit and either nut butter or honey (or yanno, both cause a girl's gotta treat herself every now and then). All topped off with a coffee of course (or, ahem, two).






You may be able to tell from this breakfast set up that I am possibly the most clichΓ© marble loving blogger that ever existed. Soz about that. Not soz though because it makes me pretty darn happy to have my very own marble patterned cereal bowls* to eat out of and mugs* to drink from. In a breakfast for two set up my new marble platter* is perfect for condiments like honey and nut butter so we can help ourselves from the middle as well as being the perfect platform for some gorgeous flowers* (fake so they last forever obvs) because call me shallow but I really do love a good looking breakfast set up. It's the simple things isn't it? And now I have the most perfect breakfast set up ready to go for my new kitchen and I can't wait!


Are you a fan of breakfast?

  3. I love your breakfast set-up. It's beautiful! Breakfast is my favourite meal of the day, but it's also my most likely to be missed. I only have about 30mins to get ready and get out so I never get time to eat.

  8. This looks so so good! I have to admit I'm not a big fan of breakfast and that's maybe because I'm not a morning person. However, I'm trying to get into healthier options than just sugary cereal or pancakes. Have you tried acai bowls?

  9. I completely adore Amara, they do have *the* dreamiest ceramics, kitchenware and accessories! The marble platter has really caught my eye, and funnily enough I've been looking for some fake flowers for my desk and these looks super gorgeous. Over to Amara I go....

  10. I loved this post. I love everything about it.. ahhh! Granola is one of my favourite breakfast choices, although I've never made my own; mental note: make your own. Absolutely LOVE the homeware bits. So pretty, also that little vase is cute. Great post, and great photos! I always enjoy your blog posts xxxxx

  11. I think, if it makes you happy, then do it! Marble is pretty huge these days but it’s such a classic & natural material it will last throughout the years. & those marble print cereal bowls are gorgeous! They would make anyone’s breakfast great! haha

  14. I don't normally like breakfast as I think it's a waste of time, but that's because I normally throw cereal into a bowl and don't particularly enjoy it. But you're so true, it should be fun and this sounds like it makes it easy and enjoyable. And those bowls!!

  15. Oh my god Amy those bowls! That mug! ALL OF IT. How ridiculously gorgeous - I am also a breakfast lover, you would never catch me skipping it and I love it all the more if it looks beautiful as well as being delicious and healthy. Love that you make time to have breakfast instead of rushing it, definitely need to start doing that too!

  17. Your photos are as stunning as ever, Amy! I am ashamed to admit that I'm not really a breakfast person, I struggle to eat as soon as I've woken up! Usually a couple of pieces of toast will suffice, but I can manage some pancakes if I have a good hour between getting up and having brekkie! This homeware set is truly stunning, and definitely blogger-friendly with the marble! I need to check out the brand ASAP1 Thanks for sharing!

  18. Omg I love all of this! It's all looks so perfect. I've just bookmaked Amara so when my spending ban ends I can buy myself some pretty things. Though I'm not gonna lie, I'm terrible at eating breakfast. I always have been, and even when I try to be good, it only lasts a few days before I get back to being lazy. A cup of tea normally keeps me going until lunch.

  22. That marble breakfast set is everything! Unlike you, breakfast is my least favourite meal in a day, I'm a dinner freak and for my mornings I always pick up something insanely simple like a toast or even a slice of pizza (I'm terrible, I know haha).

  25. This post was so calming, and I love the photography here! Breakfast definitely is the most important meal of the day. The only times I have ever skipped it were during really stressful times at university, and I noticed a massive decrease in my energy levels.

  26. That crockery is so gorgeous, who doesn't love marble? I'm actually the total opposite with breakfast; I only have it on my days off! I usually just go for toast or crumpets (I always have a yoghurt and a hot chocolate to start my day off!) as I can't seem to stomach much first thing. You're killing it with your photography lately too!
