Last week I dragged my buddies from UNiDAYS and our photography club Snap Collective (go follow us on Insta!) to Rub as they’d invited me down to try their new 80s themed cocktails. Every month we have a new theme for our photography club and for April it’s food & drink! Obviously, this is my favourite subject to talk about, photograph, blog about, everything, you guys know that. I love food, I’m a fat kid inside so whenever I have the chance to review food and drinks, I jump at it.
Last weekend we headed down to Hoar Cross Hall for a facial and a day of chilling out. We’re always busy and it was really exciting to be able to chill for most of the day. I’m not a massive ‘spa day’ person but I really enjoyed this trip. The whole walking around in a robe with strangers is kind of weird to me but you just have to go with it I think!
Can you believe it’s April already? I can’t even believe it’s Sunday already. Where does the time go? Weekends seem to fly by in a flash, especially when they’re jam packed and busy. I love a busy Saturday and a chilled out Sunday. This seems to be our go-to formula for a perfect weekend.
Can we say that spring is here now? Finally! We’ve had a few days of around 15 degrees and I think that’s pretty great. Basically just because I don’t have the leave the house wrapped up in a hat, scarf, bomber jacket and parka when I go to work. Winner!
I live in a really hilly, high up place in Nottingham where it’s literally always 5 x colder than it is in the city centre so I’m always chilly on my commute. I’m glad that I can now get back to wearing half my wardrobe again! Trousers, jumpsuits, jackets and tops that I’ve put off wearing for months because it’s basically been too cold. Does anyone else have a summer and winter wardrobe? I always try to pack away some summery pieces so I don’t confuse my wardrobe. I just wish I had a walk in wardrobe so I could see everything better, don’t you?
Skincare and beauty are big loves of mine. I’ve always loved makeup and trying new products so innovative releases are super exciting to me. I’ve got 5 new releases to chat to you about today, all of which I’ve been trialling for about 2 weeks to give a good idea of what I think. Let’s get straight down to it!
Feelin’ in a style rut? Want to try something different but you’re not sure what to add to your wardrobe or what will push you out of your comfort zone? I’ve got three things that you can try to funky up your look a little bit! Obviously, you don’t have to do all three at once if you’re not comfortable with it but I’ve always been a lil’ bit crazy and over the top with my style so it works for me!
It’s that time of year when we spring clean our houses and our lives. Cutting out any rubbish and gloominess and paving the way for a brighter few months. The sudden burst of motivation that a little bit of sunshine and a few daffodils brings is staggering! So if you’ve caught the springtime bug and are looking to update your interiors, it’s worth knowing where it’s worth investing your cash. So if you’re struggling to decide between buying a new rug or fixing those radiators, this guide will help you get your priorities straight- and help you splash your cash on the right things!
Pink is everywhere at the moment! From fashion buys to pastel hair, pink is always a spring trend and this year it seems bigger than ever. I headed down to Intu Victoria Centre with the gorgeous Robyn for a catch up, a glass of prosecco and a look at some lovely spring trends (including a lot of pink!)
Spring is well and truly here at last (well, almost)! Are you ready to venture into the great outdoors, because it is time to put away the winter clothes, and come out of hibernation. What to wear in spring can be a difficult choice. At the first sight of the sun, it is all too tempting to dig out those shorts, vests and summer dresses, but we are not quite there yet! The sun lies, it’s still pretty chilly. Here are some top tips for looking cool but staying warm and dry this spring.
As a food blogger I’m always on the look out for things that are a little different or intriguing, this blog lists a selection of restaurants that are a little weirder than others you may expect. Their quirkiness could come from décor, food or just generally the way they work. I hope you find these suggestions inspire you to try something a little different this weekend!
