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!
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.
I love a date night, and I think they’re so important to have! Especially when you’re 4 years into a relationship, it’s really special when you get out together and make an effort. We headed to Veeno last weekend for a little wine tasting action. We’ve done plenty of beer tours and beer tasting but never a wine tasting together so we were excited to see what we thought.
When I heard The Botanist was coming to Nottingham I was super intrigued. I’d actually never visited one before but we’d ventured to The Alchemist in Leeds and I’d of course, heard all about The Botanist on social and from some of my friends that were already The Botanist lovers! So, of course, when the press event rolled around and an invite popped into my inbox I was really excited. I was also excited about the prospect of heading to West Bridgford as I hardly ever head to this side of town.
It can be so easy to get the ‘busy bug’ as I call it and forget to actually socialise with your favourite people. Everyone’s lives are manic and it can be so difficult to find a date that everyone can get together. Or, worst case scenario – we end up cancelling because we’re too tired, right? This is such a bad habit of nowadays I think! Because we catch up over social media, we can sometimes think that we know what’s happening in our friends’ lives. But, we totally don’t. I decided to round up my favourites and start autumn the Swedish way and have a little dinner party with a few of our besties to get a little more social.
Raising money for different charities is something that I love to do. I like to sponsor everyone I can that I know that run crazy races, do Tough Mudders and everything else under the sun! I ran a Marathon in A Month for the British Heart Foundation last September and really enjoyed it. I love doing something with a purpose so when I heard about the Blooming Great Tea Party I was in!
Treats, sweets and chocolate don’t have to be seasonal. You can definitely have them all year round (I mean every day) if you want them! Obviously, some people will just say “duh” and eat it anyway. This post probably isn’t for you. This post is for people that think that chocolate and cakes are ‘fattening’, bad for you and generally a once in a blue moon thing. Totally not the case. They’re obviously full of sugar and aren’t packed with vitamins but if they keep you sane in small quantities then they’re totally fine and I think, essential.
Brunch, the meal of our generation, right? I don’t think anyone’s eaten as much #avocadotoast or eggs with a side of coffee than Gen Z, right? Definitely and I’m not complaining. Brunch has to be one of my favourite meals ever and it’s basically what all of our holidays and trips revolve around. During our Dublin trip, we headed to the well-recommended San Lorenzo’s, a New York/Italian style restaurant in the heart of the city centre. You can check our their brunch menu or read on for a taste of our experience!
