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…

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…

#EXPLORINGCHESHIRE WITH LAURUS HOMES *

#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…

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. 

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…

SIZZLING STEAK OUTS AT LAS IGUANAS – DEANSGATE – MANCHESTER *

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.                                                          …

LADIES OF LEISURE WITH LIVERPOOL 1 *

So, in a couple of weeks the most exciting thing is happening. I will be meeting my blogger babes Nat and heading over to see the beautiful Lana Del Rey. If work permits I am going to make a little trip out of it. I have only been to Liverpool a couple of times, so I have planned my perfect evening for Ladies at Leisure, cos that’s what I will be. See what is in store for my #TrulyScrumptious evening at Liverpool 1. Hilton Exchange: I adore Cloud23 in Manchester so to kick start…
