I was kindly gifted a box of Fairfields Farm Heat & Eat Crisps. All opinions remain 100% honest and my own.
Staying in is the new going out, there’s no denying it. Whereas I used to live for Friday and Saturday nights, getting dressed up and heading out to throw some shapes and neck shots with my friends, these days a good night consists of getting cosy on the sofa and watching something decent on the TV.
Dr Legba’s kindly invited us down and plied up with booze for free. Opinions remain 100% honest and my own.
It’s the first payday weekend of the year and you can hear a collective sigh country-wide as everyone finally has a bit of cash in their pockets. With most of us getting paid prior to Christmas it felt like a long old month, but all of that’s in the past now and if you’re planning to spend some dollahhhhs this weekend and treat yourself to a night on the town DO I HAVE A RECOMMENDATION FOR YOU.
I was very kindly sent a copy of this recipe book as a gift. All opinions remain 100% honest and my own.
As I touched on in my post the other day, the whole ‘New Year, New Me’ isn’t something I’m carrying in my mind as we march steadily into 2018. Sure, I want to improve and streamline my life, but I can’t help but feel that entering a new year with a I’m-not-quite-good-enough mentality won’t do me any good. So, I’m not doing it – it’s more important to learn to love myself than it is for me to squeeze my backside into a size 8 pair of jeans again.
I was very kindly sent a bottle of Limoncello by 31 Dover as a gift.
Earlier this year, I spent a week in Italy with our friends as one of the couples in our little gang was getting married. Whilst there we indulged ourselves in all things Italian – in fact, over the course of our 5 day stay I ate 4 pizzas. If that isn’t doing Italy right, I don’t know what is.
As well as sight-seeing and carb-loading, we also made sure to drink local beers and wines, and every meal was finished with a palate-cleansing shot of Limoncello. Ice cold and sharp, it’s the perfect way to refresh your taste buds and settle your stomach after over-filling it, as we did every single night.
Back on British soil, Limoncello has continued to be a common theme in our group, and no gathering is complete until we’ve held our glasses high, toasted our friendship and knocked back a shot of it. It’s become a bit of a staple in our cupboards, ready for any get-together.
I spent a very happy weekend in Amsterdam c/o ClinkNOORD. All opinions remain 100% honest and my own.
On our first full day in Amsterdam with ClinkNOORD, we were treated to a full schedule of fun (which I’ll tell you all about tomorrow), and told that they would be providing us with dinner, but that there would be a twist to it.
We spent our day pondering what it could be, throwing ideas around which ranged from it being an entirely raw meal to something a bit more Henry VIII and a banquet with wine and mounted animals heads for décor. As you can tell, we had not a clue what to expect.
