After a crazy week which involved no blogging at all we headed to Lincoln for what we hoped would be a sunny, spring-like cute day out. Unfortunately, it ended up being -2 and snowing but it was still lovely to visit somewhere new and having some time out. I love checking out new cities in the UK that we haven’t been to before and it was even nicer to just travel somewhere just for the day. Lincoln is only 55 minutes from Nottingham on the train and the train station is literally around the corner from the town centre.
Here goes the last blog post of February – where’s the time gone? This one is all about my number one babe, brunch. Brunch is serious stuff in Berlin and that’s what I like to hear! Brunch is *probably* my favourite food group and I am all about breakfast food at any time of the day. When we headed to Berlin we were really excited about the coffee culture and the tasty brunch treats. Here are my fave three destinations that we hit up whilst we were in the German capital.
Heading away on city breaks is one of my favourite things, I love to see new cities and cultures. We plan our city breaks around food, I won’t lie to you! I’m a massive foodie and finding little gems in new cities is so much fun. I wanted to share three of my finds from Krakow in Poland because they were seriously good. These are all dinner places as Krakow was less of the brunch and coffee scene and more dinner and beers.
In the UK in 2015, it was found that 68% of men and 58% of women were either obese or overweight – this is way too high,isn’t it? It shouldn’t be too surprising to hear that 2/3rds of Brits admitted to either being on a diet all or for most of the time. Of course, the topics of healthy eating and weight loss are massively popular talking points at the moment! They’re on every channel and in every magazine, aren’t they? According to The Telegraph, 33% of resolution makers want to lose weight, and 32% want to eat more healthily. With this in mind, MaxiMuscle investigate what the biggest diet trends could be in 2018:
For my last post of 2017 I wanted to tell you all about a super sweet event that the lovely Jess arranged as part of her BumbleBFF Queen Bee appointment! She is definitely the perfect Queen Bee for the blogger babes of Notts and she’s doing a fab job. Let’s get down to the last festive post of this year, a Christmas themed afternoon tea at the Pudding Pantry in Nottingham.
Disclaimer, before we get into this post. This is 100% a post that is only, and I mean it, only about a new sassy pair of sweatpants and a trip to Nando’s. So, if it’s a thought provoking, clickable, readable post that you’re after and you don’t want to hear about the new Nando’s pitta, leave now. I am chilling the hell out over Christmas and popping out the odd cute little post about what I’m up to and that’s about it. Of course I’m thinking about posts for the new year but I definitely don’t want to use all of my *incredible* ideas before January hits so, here’s a super simple insight into my life recently. It’s New Year’s Eve tomorrow and the last thing we all need is stress and opinions so, here’s a blog post about chicken and elasticated waistbands.
Loch Fyne’s latest campaign is all about Fish-tivities and trying something a little different this Christmas for your festive celebrations. Obviously turkey dinners are super traditional and delicious but, during December, I’m sure we all get a little bit *done* with them when they make an appearance almost every week during the run up to the big day!
I’ve wrapped my presents, bought my Secret Santa, got the tree up and we’ve been listening to Heart Extra Xmas in the car since probably about 8am on the 1st December so I’m definitely feeling festive. A lot of mince pies have been eaten and it’s actually started to snow so Christmas is creeping up on us quite quickly!
If you’ve seen my ‘why I want to move to Leeds‘ or 24h in London posts then you’ll know that we like to check out cities in the UK that we don’t live in! I just think it’s great to know your way around as many cities as you can because, why not? You never know what opportunities will arise and it’s cool to get to know other places just in case! This weekend we headed to Birmingham for the Christmas market to kick off the festive season.
I’ve not done a straight up review for a little while but I’m always on the look out for new products and tasty treats that catch my eye so that’s exactly what’s coming your way today. Let me know if you’d like to see more reviews/less reviews – whatever! Just let me know what you think to this post in the comments.
