Sticks n Sushi Review

A couple of years ago, I had never tried sushi. My family’s various allergies to seafood ruled out fish-based dinners and there was a distinct lack of sushi restaurants around Cambridge. However in the last few years, the mainstream chains have descended on Cambridge and I tried sushi and discovered that, luckily, I am not […]

Bad Brunch at All Bar One

I was recently kindly invited to review All Bar One’s brunch menu in Cambridge. As a late riser who rarely eats breakfast, brunch is my dream meal and I love spending a weekend catching up with friends over food and cocktails. Therefore I was really excited about treating my parents to brunch in Cambridge – […]

The Cambridge Gin Festival

Two of my favourite words, gin and festival; put them together and you’ve got a special event. When I heard that a Gin Festival was coming to Cambridge, I couldn’t wait, and it seems like the rest of the Cambridge population felt the same way as the event promptly sold out. Luckily I was offered […]

Deli Delights: Lunch at Mannion & Co, York

Today I am going to reveal to you a very special secret of mine – the best place for lunch in the whole of York. I stumbled across it with a friend, hungover and hungry, on a day out shopping and we were instantly enticed by the huge meringues filling the window. We ventured in […]

National Media Museum

On Monday evening, I was lucky enough to be invited to the National Media Museum in Bradford. Ever since my boyfriend started university in Bradford two years ago, I’ve been meaning to visit this museum and just haven’t got round to it. This was the perfect opportunity to actually go and explore what was on […]

“After all this time?” “Always.”

Hello! As I warned you in my last post, here’s another Harry Potter themed post. Today I wanted to share with you a few of the wonderful costumes used in the Harry Potter films, and how the ‘fashion’ enhances both the films and the WB Studio Tour:                 […]
