We’re officially in November, entering the party season and scouring Asos for some new clothes with a hint of glamour for the festive period. It’s time to step up our hosting game and have our friends over (because you know, it’s way too cold to leave the house). Rekorderlig got in touch with me and asked if I’d like to host my own Swedish dinner party and show what types of food I’d pair the…

There’s one thing that really plagues our lives. Sugar. It’s everywhere and we really can’t avoid it that easily. We probably (well, at least I do) consume way more than I need to and it’s becoming a real problem. I just really love sweets, okay?! This is where this blog post comes in, Nestle has launched 30% less sugar in some of my favourite sweets! They recently sent me some to try and I’m actually…

In the heat of the summer, there’s only a few things that can truly cool us down but also satisfy our taste buds in the process. One of those being the beloved ice cream, it’s by far my favourite food and I could eat it daily (and sometimes do). Which is why I was so excited when I was invited along to an ice cream tasting session at Movenpick Boutique in Intu Metrocentre. It was a…

It happened, I had my first Afternoon Tea. Yeah I know, it’s taken me 21 years to finally try one of the most insta-worthy experiences. It was worth the wait though, believe me! I visited The Joinery, a gorgeous but rather small tearoom in Newcastle Upon Tyne and I was booked in to try one of their Afternoon Tea’s. The tearoom is a beautiful place, full of light and swoon-worthy decor. I was in love…

It’s about time that Newcastle got a decent place to consume various forms of meat other than Longhorns (Sorry, Longhorns, you just don’t do it for me…) that have a cocktail menu and focus on slow cooked meats. I jumped at the chance to review Red’s and I shot them over an email asking if I could come along and tell you all what I thought. As soon as we arrived and walked in, we didn’t…

With a new burger place seemingly popping up every week in Newcastle, and my devotion to The Fat Hippo, I have to admit, I hadn’t heard of The Grind. That was until late last year when the lovely Chiesh invited me to their Pop Up launch at the lovely No. 28. Not one to say no to trying a new burger, I hopped along. Spending an evening with both Mandy Charlton and Laura Dawson is always a treat,…

Hi there! Back again with another food review. What can I say? I love to eat. George’s is a place I’d had my eyes on before it even was announced that it’d be opening in Eldon Square. I’d seen the candy floss gin cocktail floating about on Instagram and immediately stalked their account – and sulked realising there was only one restaurant open in Nottingham. Fast forward a few months and it was announced that…

Bill’s is a restaurant founded on fresh produce and good food. Bill’s started off as a Green Grocer, selling fresh fruit and vegetables. The shop was hit by a flood, so when they decided that it was time to re-open, they added a cafe! Fast forward a few years and 70+ restaurants later, Bill’s is a chain with a great menu, great staff and great morals. Each restaurant has a shop attached, where you can…

For weeks before the launch, I was eyeing up The Fat Hippo Durham. The interiors looked fab, in a gorgeous old building in the middle of the gorgeous city. There’s something about Durham that is just so beautiful, whatever the weather. I was invited along to try the Durham restaurant to see how it varies from the Underground – my usual. Besides the food, one of the best things about the Fat Hippo is that you’re able to…

Hi everyone! I thought I’d share with you what I got in my Scoff Club Box, which I was so kindly sent to review. Its a monthly subscription box of retro and classic sweeties. I couldn’t pass up on this opportunity to try the box as I am a self confessed sugar addict. The concept is so fun and I think it would make an amazing gift for people of all ages (or something to…

I’m trying to convince myself it’s Spring, but we’re at the end of January and it’s still very much freezing. Christmas is over and so is New Year and really, we don’t have that much to look forward to other than the summer. A nice warm drink always gets me through the cold days and I look forward to having something that will warm me throughout. I like hot chocolate, but I hate the horrible…
