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…

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…

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…

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…
