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…

#DerbyBloggersBrunch at BEAR

I can remember two years ago; I’d only been blogging for a few months and I was just a shy little blogger hoping to make a few friends and learn more about the blogging industry. So, when I first read about #DerbyBloggersBrunch, I jumped at the opportunity to get involved! #DerbyBloggersBrunch was my first ever meet up so it’s always held a special place in my lil blogger heart. I went along to the first #DerbyBloggersBrunch at The Cosy Club (you can read all about it here) but since then there’s been three more. I missed out on two of…

Las Iguanas, Nottingham has had a makeover!

If you know me, even just a little bit, you will know I love a big heaping plate of Mexican food any day of the damn week. Burritos, tacos, nachos, fajitas, enchiladas. You name it, I love it. So that’s why, when I received a lovely invitation from Las Iguanas to check out their revamped Nottingham branch I was super excited but also baffled as to why I’d never been before. We were shown to our table almost straight away. There was a teeny queue but that was to be expected as the place was literally packed full. We ordered…

Bodega, Derby: The press party

Bodega have been on my radar now for a while. I’d heard wonderful things about their restaurant in Leicester as a few of my friends had been and written about it. But the thing is, I don’t visit Leicester very often so I’ve always missed out. Until now! A few months ago (I think I was on my way to The Orange Tree) I noticed that Bodega was opening soon in Derby. There were some posters up in an empty restaurant at the bottom of Sadler Gate. Honestly at the time I thought to myself “I wonder if they’ll put on…

Rush Hair, Nottingham: exclusive VIP night

A few weeks ago (read: three months ago) I was very kindly invited to the exclusive VIP pre-opening of the new Rush hair salon in Nottingham city centre. Nottingham isn’t the nearest city to me, however it is my favourite city in my local area so I was super excited! I arrived early but, luckily for me, a few other people did too so I got the chance to say hello and introduce myself before we went inside. My first impressions were fantastic! The place was spotless. There were tons of products stacked on the shelves and each one was perfectly…
