SPRING PRAWN SALAD

SPRING PRAWN SALAD

The weather is brightening up which means when it comes to food there is always one thing on the top of my list… salad. Yep that’s right – those people who say salads are boring, are seriously just not doing it right. I love a good ol’ leafy green on my plate! I mean honestly salad is made for sunny days especially my spring prawn salad. This month I’ve been big on meal prep – so want to save money for all of the good things in life and buying…

TAKE YOUR TASTE-BUDS TO THE MIDDLE EAST WITH DESTINATION2*

TAKE YOUR TASTE-BUDS TO THE MIDDLE EAST WITH DESTINATION2*

As you can see by my Instagram and the majority of this blog, I enjoy food. Like a lot. Just give me the food, all of the food, all day long. I pride myself on being one of those people who will try anything once – as an adult I have now managed to make myself like numerous foods, such as olives, artichokes and aubergine, however I’ll still pass on the mushrooms and I’m not best friends with the good old tomato. I have been very lucky in my life…

6 FEET DEEP IN GIN AT MANCHESTER GIN FESTIVAL *

This weekend I finally passed my theory test and there was no better way to celebrate than sipping some tasty alcoholic beverages at Manchester gin festival. Held at the historical Victoria Baths, each pool playing a different part. First off was the taster room, I mean if you’re a fan of gin what better than a whole pool of the stuff. It started off in the female pool still with all of its original features with rustic changing stall with traditional stable doors!

WHY EVERYONE SHOULD HOST A FRIENDSGIVING

WHY EVERYONE SHOULD HOST A FRIENDSGIVING

As you are all aware a couple of weeks ago it was Thanksgiving in America. Here in the UK it will fly past us without us even batting an eyelid, we don’t get a public holiday nor do we know anyone that celebrates it. However this year was somewhat different to me, having recently moved in with my American flatmate, who is living a thousands of miles away from home and her friends and families, we decided that we would throw a thanksgiving dinner together. As a sucker for a party…

WEEKDAYS WINETASTING AT VEENO *

WEEKDAYS WINETASTING AT VEENO *

We had the pleasure of visiting Veeno, a quaint little Italian café tucked away on a back street in Manchester. The brand started 3 years ago with two Italian guys’ passion for Spuntini* and wine, and noticed that there was nowhere in Manchester offering the same thing. Veeno now has 14 stores across the UK, with a new one opening in Kingston upon Thames. The café offers a variety of wine, prosecco, beer, small nibbles and light bites. They have various wine tasting packages perfect for meeting up with friends…

You must now by now, one of our favourite things to do is to go out for dinner! So, when we were invited to try out Las Iguanas new menu, of course the answer was a yes! I have been a few times and always loved my experience at this busy Mexican restaurant., however it was nice to try something different.                                                          …

HOW I GOT ON THE BBC

HOW I GOT ON THE BBC

So, back in April I moved back to my uni city of Manchester, although I have some family here, I lost most of my uni friends to their hometowns. So, when I moved back I did’t really have many people to hang out with. After a difficult relationship, I lost a lot of confidence and really found it hard to go out ad meet new people. It was daunting and scary, and I felt like I had forgotten how to interact. This is where The Girl Gang comes in. My…

#BESTSUMMEREVER WITH THAIKHUN – MANCHESTER – SPINNINGFIELDS *

#BESTSUMMEREVER WITH THAIKHUN – MANCHESTER – SPINNINGFIELDS *

Thai has always been one of my favourite foods. I love the range of flavours involved, the creaminess and the coconut. So, last week  I was in my element when I was invited to Thaikhun for a taste of the exotic. It is a restaurant I have always wanted to dine in as I spend a lot of time in Spinningfields, however, have not yet had the chance. The decor is so aesthetically pleasing, it draws you in immediately and I couldn’t wait to sit in the TukTuk. We were…
