Yonder Collective: Make your Mark

This Summer I attended a beautiful event; not just because of its exciting venue of Floating Harbour Studios and gorgeous flowers from Flower & Land, but because of the lovely people. Yonder Collective is an exciting “space” created by Emma Chapman-Burnett and Rebecca Storey, who sought to build up a community of like-minded creative people…

Grillstock: All the meat, music & mayhem!

I’m currently reminiscing about the Summer. Remember those few days of glorious weather where Bristol came alive again with merry dancing people?!?! I miss it so!! One of the best bits about those few fabulous days was that it magically coincided with a weekend of drinking and eating at Grillstock festival. This was by far…

Weber & Tring’s: Negroni tasting

This post may be a little squiffy – the opportunity to try negronis (my favourite cocktail) in various formats made me more than a little bit merry. Luckily I took some notes… although they are not the most thorough. Weber and Tring’s is a gorgeous shop up the Christmas steps, where Sarah Weber and Richard Tring have…

Little Kitchen: Curry Club

I have loved baking since a child, but more general cooking has only become a passion in the last couple of years. My go to dinner used to be poached eggs on crumpets (which is still an epic evening food choice!) Now I try to be a little more adventurous. One thing I had not…

BOX-E – Celebrating being us!

I am a big fan of celebrating; whether there is a specific reason or just celebrating surviving life that week (it can be tricky sometimes!) The chance to get together with fab friends, eat delicious food and toast with a glass of fizz is one of my favourite things in life. If you are also…

The Eating Room: falling in love with it’s decor & food!

Now and again I just need a day off for me; to potter about and ignore adulting for a little bit. After a detox weekend away and boozy roast based birthday weekend (contradictory I know), I knew a me day would be just what the doctor ordered. I am also slowly exploring my new area…

Cox and Baloney: New brunch menu is out

Cox and Baloney tea rooms is one of the places in Bristol I always visit and wish I could live there. It is beautiful! I also have a small obsession with vintage crockery, and it is everywhere. I had the wonderful opportunity to try their new brunch menu (which meant I also had an excuse to…

Bristol Food Tour: Revisiting and discovering new faves

I love my city. Consequently I love any opportunity to play tourist and explore more of Bristol and, in particular, its food! The best way to do this… The Bristol Food Tour! I chose to go on their Vegan tour option. To caveat up front, I am not vegan (sorry!). I am however not really…

Las Vegas: Embracing the loopiness

Last year was a year of big birthdays in the fam, so to celebrate my mum took us to Las Vegas! No biggie… :-p Travelling with the family means it wasn’t The Hangover style you might expect, but there are some things I would recommend to anyone, no matter what style of holiday you are…

Dinewithi – Totterdown Canteen combo

Pop up restaurants are a great way to experience fabulous food in Bristol. One of my personal faves is Dinewithi. With an ethos of: “flavoursome, unfussy, locally sourced food cooked beautifully” you can always be confident that you will be finish the eve full and happy! Luckily for me, the most recent location to showcase the tasty treats was just round…

Pho: You can pho your own way…

(Good luck getting the song out of your head…..) There is quite the competition in Bristol for pho. We can’t seem to get en0ugh of the flavoursome Vietnamese soup. I recently tried out Pho on Corn Street and kind of fell in love with it. Why… You can get a bib! I am a renowned…
