Wine tasting date night

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.

The Prettiest Meringues Ever?

If someone said to you wine flavoured meringue you’d be all, erm, yes. Right? Totally. That what happened when I heard about the I heart wines collaboration with the awesome Meringue Girls – the stars that made those burger macaroons for the Tommy Hilfiger LFW show! They’ve worked together to create this gorgeous range of Merlot, Prosecco and Rose meringues. I’ve got the recipe here the Rose meringue kisses for you, thanks to I heart wines, so if you’re the baking way inclined (which I am not, I am the eating way inclined), you can make them yourself! But, all the same, they’re delicious whether you eat or create them!

Mushroom & White Wine Risotto Recipe

My usual style of cooking is pretty quick! The dishes that I tend to whip are usually whack everything in a casserole dish and leave in the oven for 30 minutes or something I can fry or boil up quickly in a pan. But, after finding a crazy bargain leg of pork from Morrisons’ reduced section, about £1.49 if I remember rightly (which I do because I’ve been bragging about it to my fellow yellow label lovers), I decided to do a roast.

Skincare + Prosecco = May Favourites

It’s that time again, just a little round up of some products that’ve been rocking my world this month. In May, it’s been all about the skincare, a fragrance and a bit of fizz!

Favourites 3 copy

First up, I’ve been trialling a few products from Caudalie’s Vinosource range which is all about hydration. I trialled their Vinosource Moisturising Sorbet a while ago from Space NK when I was have texture issues with my skin. I was using a cleanser for much oilier skins than mine and it had dried my skin out horrendously. I used this for a few days and my skin was back to normal in no time. It’s so hydrating so perfect for the summer time. It’s also great for sensitive skin and is packed with anti-oxidants.

Girls Night at Veeno Nottingham

Every few weeks it’s time for a little girl time. Sometimes we stay in and watch the Great British Bake-Off and eat cake, sometimes we get dressed up and have cocktails and sometimes we like to do something in between and eat some tasty food, drink wine and have a gossip in a relaxed setting. The latter was the theme for our most recent girl’s date night. We headed to Veeno on Friday night, situated at the top of Middle Pavement in Nottingham, a stones throw from our office for a little wine tasting.
