HOLY CHESUS VEGAN PIZZA IS GOOD – PUREZZA – CAMDEN *

HOLY CHESUS VEGAN PIZZA IS GOOD – PUREZZA – CAMDEN *

Veganism is thriving in popularity right now. Whether it be for ethical beliefs or dietary choices, there are more products becoming available on the market. Having family and friends that are veggies or vegan it’s great to see them having more options to choose from. Meaning they can wine and dine just as well as the rest of us. Although I admit to being meat-eater and loving it, I also am the first to admit that I think we live in a glutenous society and consume way more than necessary!…

WHY I FELL IN LOVE WITH LYON

WHY I FELL IN LOVE WITH LYON

Lyon is a place I have held always very close to my heart, it may be the reason it was so easy to fall in love with, and a city that every time I go back I insist I am ready to pack up and move. I may have the comfort of my family there, however, as I am not so much a homebody I don’t think this is the biggest draw to this bustling city. Yes of course it will play a part, but there is so much to…

MIDWEEK MUSIC VIBES WITH PEN AND PENCIL *

Let’s be honest time is this sneaky little guy that slips away from us! The amount of things we’d be able to achieve if we just had a little more time on our hands! Relationships is just one thing that can suffer from our busy busy lives and we need to re-engage with how important it is to spend time with lived ones. We all have those friends and family members that no matter how long we leave it our relationships stay the same but just because they can withstand…

STAY SAFE CAMPING IN THE LAKES WITH HALFORDS*

STAY SAFE CAMPING IN THE LAKES WITH HALFORDS*

I was fortunate to have been brought up in one of the most stunning parts of the country. That is the Lake District. Therefore, most of my childhood memories involve hikes, countryside walks and of course camping. In fact, camping was one of my favourite things to do as a child, and many of our school holidays were spent camping in Wales, The Lakes, Cornwall and even France. It is a shame as now the older I am the less I camp. In fact, I cannot remember the last time…

4 DAYS IN LISBON

4 DAYS IN LISBON

Boa noite you lovely lovely people. Earlier this year I complied a travel list. Places I had booked to visit and ones I had hoped to visit! Out of the 5 I’ve ticked two off and Portugal was one of them. My papas friends moved out there over 5 years ago now – yes I’ve been a fool and massively delayed a visit. So this June we flew over together to say hello, it had nothing to do with the fact our friend Simon had bought us a box to…

BREAKING THE SOLO BRUNCHING TABOO – 19 CAFE BAR – MANCHESTER

BREAKING THE SOLO BRUNCHING TABOO – 19 CAFE BAR – MANCHESTER

As I’ve got older there is something I’ve learnt to do more and more. That is to enjoy my company. A little bit of self-indulgence and giving myself some me time! I must admit it took a while. I remember I always used to find it odd when my dad would head to a restaurant and dine alone or go gigging solo! I’d always thought to myself – what a strange man not wanting to share those experiences with friends. However, now I get it! He adores music and seeing…

TOP TIPS FOR TRAVELLING HAND LUGGAGE *

When you travel around a lot like me, whether it be in the UK or around the world the key to an easy life is to travel light! Not only does this save you lugging heavy bags around in the heat or the rain it can also save a fortune on hold baggage costs! You may not think you can pack enough for a 2 week holiday in hand luggage but believe me if you pack well you’ll be like Mary Poppins! With summer holidays coming up I’m letting you…

#EXPLORINGCHESHIRE WITH LAURUS HOMES *

As you may know by know I live in the powerhouse of the North, the city that’s home to infamous bands, historical figures and premiere league football clubs. However, I wasn’t born into a cosmopolitan lifestyle, in fact I’m a country bumpkin that hails from a picturesque part of the Lake District! One reason I chose to make Manchester my home is the versatility this area offers – you may have cracking nightlife and fabulous restaurants, however stray a little further and I’m back to green lands, still waters and…

A HOT AIR BALLOON ADVENTURE

A HOT AIR BALLOON ADVENTURE

So, today I had what I can only describe as an incredibly surreal morning! If you watched my Insta, you would have seen I partook in an amazing experience, something my mum has always wanted to tick off her bucket list! Yep, that’s right at 6am we floated off in a hot air balloon! I was lucky enough last year to win a virgin experience voucher, and so I decided to get in the brownie points and gift my mum with a trip for multiple Birthdays and Christmases – dam I just…

OOO LA LA BON APETITE – BISTROT PIERRE – ALTRINCHAM – MANCHESTER *

When the sun is out one of my fave things to do is dine alfresco, well I always like to dine as you can see here! However, it’s definitely something that has those holiday feels to me and I can never understand why people eat inside on a hot day.  Whenever we take a trip to France we often dine outside and it was great to get those vacay vibes last week whilst I was out sampling Bistrot Pierre’s Spring menu.
