Gianni’s Italian Restaurant and Pizzeria, Scarborough

When myself and Jordan went away to Scarborough for a few days in August we hoped to keep costs to a minimum. So we cooked something in the holiday flat most nights but we wanted to make our last night special and head out somewhere to eat. We were going to go for a classic fish and chip tea (an absolute must when you’re by the sea) but we’d eaten so many chips already we fancied something different. After a quick Google, I stumbled upon Gianni’s. Gianni’s is a long established, family-run restaurant that has been in the heart of…

Why are bloggers being criticised for not being “real”?

The latest bandwagon in the blogosphere seems to be criticising bloggers/influencers/people in general for posting content that isn’t considered “real” and, to be honest, I don’t understand it. Particularly on Instagram. I understand people wanting to follow bloggers who share the more everyday bits of their life, like their weekly shop (I love a good Lidl haul), their health issues or their cleaning routine (c’mon, who doesn’t adore Mrs Hinch?). But I also understand that it’s not for everyone. The only thing I don’t understand is the need to criticise. What even is “real”? Who decides what it is or…

Bottomless brunch at Las Iguanas, Birmingham

If you’ve read my post all about the transformation at Las Iguanas, Nottingham then you’ll already know I’m a big big fan. In fact my boyfriend Jordan loves the place and, let me tell you, he doesn’t love many things! We’ve known that Las Iguanas has been serving up brunch for a while now but we’ve never set aside the time to give it a try. So, a couple of weeks ago when we were in Birmingham, we visited Las Iguanas Temple St. to put it to the test! We arrived early. So early that they weren’t even open yet. We…

Airbnb: Thoughts from a first-timer and the hidden gem I found

I had always been sceptical (to say the least!) about Airbnb. I’d read a few horror stories, seen a couple of bad reports and had never really considered booking with them to be honest because of what I’d heard. That was until I was desperately hunting for somewhere half-decent but also affordable for us to stay during our break away in the summer. We hoped to extend our seaside break to Scarborough for an extra night in York – a little stop off on the way home if you like. Hotels were averaging at between £70 and £90 a night…

A little chat about my blogging journey and what I’ve learned from it so far

I’ve been in and out of the blogging loop for the majority of my blogger life to be honest. Definitely for at least the last couple of years. So if you’re still here, thank you for joining me. I’m glad you could make it. When I started in January 2016 I felt excited, full of energy and buzzing to share my ideas with the world. I used to log onto my computer every night to either read blogs or write my own posts. I used to feel like I’d let myself down if I didn’t post at least three times…
