Big Blogger Expo 2016

Two weeks ago I met up with the brilliant Aine (Honestly Aine) in London and we made our way to the Danubis Hotel in Regent’s Park for the Big Blogger Expo 2016. (Although we obviously stopped at 221B Baker Street too, because it would be rude not to!)

The Big Blogger Expo was set up by Lauren from Blonde Vision (who also runs Ldnmeetup) and it’s a great way to network with brands and bloggers.

Burger Feast At No32 | Brighton

Nestled in the heart of Duke Street in Brighton is, if I’m being completely honest, a place I’d never paid much attention to before; No32.  It always used to look pretty daunting and I thought it would be ridiculously expensive.  So when Yelp Brighton invited me to their burger event, I went down to see if they could change my mind about the place.

Prawn Pad Thai Recipe Review

I had loads of blog post ideas for this week, but ran out of time to write any. So while I was about to make dinner, inspiration struck; I could blog about it! Crisis well and truly averted. And luckily for me, it was quick, easy and tasted amazing! (And yes, I know my presentation is a bit, well, shit, but I’m not exactly applying for Masterchef! :D)

Planète Chocolat

When I was in high school, I took History and as part of that, our class took a day trip to Belgium. We visited a chocolatier to watch them make Belgian chocolate. As they passed round tasters, and I popped one in my mouth, my love affair of Belgian chocolate began and I spent all my pocket money in the gift shop. Oops.

Pinkberry Frozen Yoghurt

When I went to the US in 2011, Pinkberry* was everywhere. So it was disappointing that the UK didn’t have any. Until now. They now have a UK flagship store in Islington, London and I went up to check them out on their opening day.

*side story* Before I even got there, I had a bit of a catastrophe. I was all for wearing my jeans until I stepped outside two hours before heading to the train station to find that it was boiling hot outside. I own the total of two pairs of shorts; one are massive and look hideous and the other are a lil bit too tight (they’re a size 8 and it turns out I am not.) So I hot-footed to Next, tried on ALL the shorts and picked up a pair I really liked. And two tops. I really like them so an OOTD might appear soon. When it’s stopped raining. Thanks England, you da best! Anyway…

Get a Wriggle On | Brighton

Whenever my parents or friends come to visit me in Brighton, my lack of knowledge on good places to eat is pretty shocking. I’ve actually taken someone to McDonald’s on Western Road before because I’m that bad at knowing where to eat! If you’ve ever been there, you’ll understand 😀

Then the lovely folks at Wriggle* got in touch and now I have a handy website and app which shows me deals from local eateries; whether it’s a café down a side street I’ve never heard of before or the best streetfood that everyone’s been raving about.

Chocolate Chip Muffin Recipe Review

I like to think that I’m a pretty decent baker, I mean my cakes rise, they’re not dry and I don’t really burn things … But muffins? Jeez, I cannot for the life of me bake a decent bloody muffin! The last lot I made had the consistency of bread, looked liked cupcakes and tasted, well, pretty damn tasteless.
