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…

Reflections: My three words for 2016

At the beginning of this year I read Aled’s blog on three words for 2016 and was inspired. The concept resonated with me; rather than looking at specific (often unrealistic) goals/resolutions, choose three words to provide some focus to the actions and choices you make in the year. My chosen words? Calm Strength Creativity Here’s a little reflection…

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…

Lido: Hidden Tranquility

It can be tricky to get away from it all when you live in a city. Luckily we have a little haven hidden away in Bristol: The Lido. This is one of my favourite places to treat myself or the lovely people in my life. My actual best thing to do is to buy one of…

Pi Shop: Not just about the pizza…

With its link to Casamia, I had no doubt that Pi Shop was going to be fabulous. After moving Casamia into its new central home in the newly renovated General Hospital, excitingly the Sánchez brothers have now expanded their culinary genius, going back to the family’s pizzeria roots (and there are plans for more exciting things too!)…

Shambala: A festival of pure colour and glitter

I wasn’t sure I could handle a festival anymore. Forefront in my mind is the fact I like my sleep. And more importantly, I like my sleep in my bed. My ability to survive more than one night out in a row is also pretty low. Doesn’t bode well for partying for days with little…

Deliveroo: Tuk Tuck goodness

Deliveroo has been a bit of a game changer in the world of take aways. These days you can pretty much order any meal from any local restaurant to be delivered to your door, and quick (thanks to the speedy guys and girls whizzing around on bikes). So dangerous! If box sets weren’t already doing a pretty stirling job of…

Get Bendy: My Kind of Yoga Retreat

Last year I decided I wanted to run away from it all and go on a yoga retreat. In actual fact it took a little more prep and planning than trying to escape that very weekend: I upped my practice of yoga to 3-4 times a week and with that my love for yoga increased; I…

Mrs Browns Cafe: Coffee catch ups in the sun

Everyone has their list of favourite spots in Bristol. If you’re like me, this list constantly evolves as you discover more little gems hidden in different corners of our city. Mrs Browns Cafe, a cute little outside cafe nestled in Victoria Park, has become a recent addition to my list. The offerings are fairly simple:…

Fusion Cakes and Bakes: Taste tester!!

Admittedly, I have quite an addiction to social media. I keep trying to curb it, but sometimes it pays off and then I justify my addiction to myself all over again! A recent example: after spotting a pretty scrumptious looking chocolate mint cake on my Twitter feed I joked about offering up my taste testing…

Clandestiner Supper Club: Dining with Strangers

I’ve always been somewhat intrigued by the idea of supper clubs. The idea of dining in someone’s living room, sat with people you have never met before, can feel a little daunting. However, one thing you can pretty much count on in that scenario is that you will be sat at a table with one…
