Monthly highlights: May 2018

It’s been a while since I did a good old monthly highlights post. My last one was all the way back in January. I didn’t even realise it was that long ago to be honest! Maybe I’ve been lazy or maybe I’ve just had an uneventful few months. Who knows? All I know is I am back with a bumper monthly highlights so buckle up kiddos. Is Summer finally here? May brought us some fantastic weather, did it not? Us Brits love to complain about our (usually) less than impressive weather but honestly I think May brought us more sunny…

Foodie first impressions: Annie’s Burger Shack, Nottingham

I can be a drama queen, I won’t even deny it, but I am not exaggerating even a little bit when I say that I have dreamed about visiting Annie’s Burger Shack for years. My old boss told me all about Annie’s Burger Shack, probably four years ago now, and that was the first I’d heard of the place. I’ve always loved a good burger (let’s be honest, who doesn’t?) so I just knew that I had to check it out. Four years passed and I still hadn’t been. There wasn’t really a reason why, I just always ended up…

Walkabout, Derby: My verdict on their new menu

I feel like I’ve been writing tons of foodie posts lately and, honestly, I’m loving it. So I’m sorry if foodie posts aren’t your thing but, at the same time, not sorry. On Friday evening me and my boo went along to Walkabout in Derby city centre to try their new menu. I’ve only ever been to Walkabout once before and that was when I was invited along to try their menu the first time. So I kinda knew what to expect but I was also looking forward to trying something new. Our booking was for 6pm and we were…

I’m not vegan but this is what I’m doing to make the world a better place

I can remember when I didn’t know what it meant to be vegan and, to be honest, it wasn’t that long ago. Nowadays almost everyone knows at least one or two vegans and veganism is probably just as common, if not more so, than vegetarianism. I didn’t used to understand why people wanted to be vegan. I used to (naively) think that if an animal wasn’t killed for their produce then they weren’t harmed at all. Obviously I now know that I was completely wrong in thinking that and I’m ashamed that I ever did. But I guess the first…

Bodega, Derby: The menu launch party

If you’ve followed me on social media, even for just a little while, you’ll know that I am a massive fan of Bodega, Derby. Ever since the press party almost a year ago now (has it really been that long?!) I’ve been infatuated with the place. From the food to the staff to the décor, I love it all! So there was no way I could miss their menu launch event. I tend to order the same thing every time I visit (the Burger a la Parilla in case you’re wondering) so I was looking forward to trying something new. Something…
