Postcards from Pompeii

Pompeii has been on my bucket list ever since I can remember. As a child, I loved learning about the Romans and this perfectly preserved city destroyed by Vesuvius captured my imagination. This year, I finally got to visit the place I have read so much about:

Cambridge is full of new and exciting places to eat and I love discovering somewhere new whenever I dine out. When I was invited to review the Marco Pierre White Steakhouse at Cambridge’s Doubtletree by Hilton hotel, I jumped at the chance to try something new in Cambridge.

Luckily I was offered […]

Winning at Ginning

Oh, gin. My favourite spirit, I love it with tonic or bitter lemon – I’m not fussy which. I also love learning about it, as there are simply an overwhelming range of varieties of gin available and there is always more to try! So when The Snug invited me to their Gin Masterclass, I couldn’t […]
