A couple of weekends ago, my friend Rachael and I decided to check out the Brighton Artbox cafe, the UK’s first dedicated character themed cafe. The current theme is Pusheen which I think is staying until the end of October, before a new character comes along!
A while ago, the lovely people at Mercure got in touch and asked if I fancied staying in their Brighton hotel with a plus one. Whilst I would have loved J to come with me, he wasn’t feeling up to it, so I knew that one of my best friends, Charlie, would be the perfect choice to come and check it out with me 😀
As she lives in London, we decided to make a day of it, shopping in Brighton first, before enjoying a complementary three course meal in the hotel’s restaurant, then relaxing in our room while doing some serious lazing around and TV watching!
Sometimes life works out pretty great, doesn’t it? I met one of my oldest best friends, Charlie, on my first day at a new school (aged 14). We used to live really near each other and walked to school together most days.
When we were 16, she moved away, but we still kept in touch, writing letters to each other 🙂 She recently moved back to England, finding a place in London, which is the closest we’ve lived to each other for years!!
Ages ago, Alice and I decided that we really needed to meet up this year and, as Portsmouth wasn’t too far for either of us to head to, we decided to meet up there. Alice was then invited to try out The Cosy Club for lunch in Portsmouth and it seemed like the perfect opportunity to have a catch up!
Recently Sammy, Mr Biscuit (her gorgeous miniature Daschund puppy) and I headed to Barker and Stonehouse in Hove on a rainy Saturday afternoon for a mooch around, a long over-due catch-up and to check out their new coffee house (situated upstairs at the back).
La Cave a Fromage is somewhere I’ve been past on the bus many times and have always wanted to go in and try. Recently, I finally got my wish and I headed there with my lovely friend Tania for their fondue night and a long over-due catch-up!
A few weeks ago, a super intriguing email landed in my inbox that completely piqued my attention!
I was asked if I wanted to attend the launch of The Canna Kitchen, the UK’s First Cannabis Infused Restaurant, and, obviously, I absolutely had to go and try it out for myself!
POLPO is a small, unassuming restaurant, situated at 20 New Road (near the Theatre Royal). It’s well-known for their share plates of incredible Venetian food, a beautifully relaxed vibe and extensive cocktail menu.
I’ve passed by a lot, but never had the chance to stop and go in, until now.
I’ve written about this before; every month or so me and my friend, Rachael, head out and do something super fun together! After going to The Parlour in Arundel a few months ago with some friends, Skarlett’s Cafe in Battle popped up as a recommendation and, as Rachael and I both love food, it was the perfect idea!
Hard to believe we’re now halfway through the year, isn’t it? This month has gone pretty slowly for me, what about you? I think my biggest thing of June was my back problem.
