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…

Monthly highlights: January 2018

January 2018 already! Where has the time gone? The older I get, the faster it seems to fly by. January was slow and quiet. Honestly, I struggled to think of a handful of highlights at first. But I’ve managed to scrape a few together so hopefully this post won’t be as boring as January felt. Orange Is the New Black I started watching OITNB way back when it first came out but I only made it to the end of season 2. I got bored of it to be honest and I could never get back into it. I started…

I want to lose weight and there is nothing wrong with that

I’ve seen a lot of people posting about their new year’s goals and resolutions but this year I’ve noticed a change. I’ve noticed less people want to lose weight and more people want to embrace their size and love their bodies as they are. Obviously, this is fantastic! I love seeing people love themselves; it’s something I wish I could do! But I can’t, and that’s why I want to lose weight and, frankly, there is nothing wrong with that. I’ve been a big girl my whole life. I’ve always had an appetite and I’ve always loved food. I’m notorious…
