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…

#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…
