I rarely venture out as far as Hove for food, despite knowing there are some absolute gems when it comes to great places to eat with Instagrammable décor, mostly because it’s almost an hour away by bus for me and I’m pretty lazy! But, when Sammy, Jess, Tania and I were chatting about meeting up for brunch, I was happy to let them choose somewhere to go, because I know they know all the best spots! Sammy suggested Hixon Green so we made a plan to meet up.
March has been a bit of a “blink and you’ll miss it” month. It’s also been a bit rubbish if I’m being honest. I feel like my blog is lacking direction at the moment and I don’t know where to take it. I’ve barely blogged at all 🙁 I’ve also not really felt myself and at the beginning of the month I lacked any motivation, boooo!
Well, I finally made it to Southampton to see Alice and Joshua 😀 I also got a fab surprise in the form of Emily, Alice’s sister!! I follow her on social media and have chatted to her for ages, so it was lovely to finally meet!!
You know when you’re feeling a bit rubbish and you’re not sure why? Well, I love cooking something that’s comforting and, for me, nothing says comforting like a nice big plate of curry and rice!!
Oh jeez, where to start with February?? Well, I spent the first two weeks of it off work, feeling incredibly dizzy and sick!! I was in bed for most of the mornings with the TV on quietly as a distraction, then had a quick shower and flumped on the sofa with a blanket for the afternoons; Dog Rescuers with Alan Davies has become one of my new favourite shows!!
A couple of days ago, I met up with my friends Rachael and Abi for a very long overdue catch-up!! The last time we hung out together was back in August!!
I’ve been really hankering for some good Thai food, so we decided we were going to go along to Street Thai (in Brighton Square, which is in The Lanes); I’ve been before and absolutely loved it!
I can’t believe it was November 2016 when I attended the launch of Cin Cin in Vine Street! It was such a lovely, fun evening and the food was absolutely perfect!
I was so excited when I learnt late last year that they were going to be opening another restaurant at 60 Western Road in Hove (right near Palmeira Square.)
Back in the 90s, I was one of those children who, rather than scoffing chocolate and biscuits, always used to devour a packet of Polos pretty much every day, almost like there was no tomorrow. I always used to keep a packet either in my pocket or in a hand-me-down bag from my mum, which inevitably led to Polos falling out all over the place, getting all dirty with pocket fluff or breaking in the bottom of my bag 🙁
I was also one of those weird kids who used to suck their Polos until they were really, really thin, break a section off and pretend I had my lip pierced by using the POLO® as a lip ring!! Erm… Just me then, yeah?
I’m not going to lie, we’re a massive fan of gadgets in our house, if it makes our lives easier, we’re in! From lighting we can control from our phones (thanks IKEA) to using our Google Home to play music, get up to date with the latest news and commute times to work.
We also have a plethora of kitchen gadgets that we actually use frequently; the Nutribullet for those daily smoothies (yup, I’m still using this a year later), an air fryer for healthier cooking and an electric can opener.
A couple of weekends ago I jumped on a train to Chichester, meeting Millie, Beth and Rosie on the way, where we headed to Jo Malone (based in House of Fraser) for a wonderful afternoon to celebrate the launch of their latest fragrances; English Oak and Redcurrant and English Oak with Hazelnut ♥
