Watching Masterchef, obviously. Let it Go, repeatedly. Black Books. The Trip – so happy to have a second series! I’m Alan Partridge (I know, I’m late to that party). New Game of Thrones – consider me excited. Listening to Regina, R.E.M., a very Parisian playlist for the French edition of Nom Nom Club, Mungo’s Hi-Fi, Bob, Pulp and Shirley Bassey, because we did the best …

The Food Report: A Weekend in Stroud

The Food Report: A Weekend in Stroud

Some of you may know I come from Stroud in Gloucestershire. It’s famous for wool production, lots of art including an incredible Fringe Festival, Cider with Rosie, Damien Hirst and Thomas the Tank Engine. Aside from all that, we have some pretty great food. We had the country’s first fully organic cafe and one of the …

Watching Masterchef –  the return of Tim and Shelina made me pretty excited. My sister made me watch Frozen and I flipping loved it. I’m not normally very bothered by Disney films, but I really liked the messages in Frozen, which were a move away from the usual ‘you need a man’.  Listening to Obviously the Frozen soundtrack, which is also a strong …

The Food Report: Bakchich

The Food Report: Bakchich

    Last night I went to Bakchich on Bold Street for a little dinner and catch up with Kate. It’s pretty ridiculous that I haven’t been there before considering that I love any kind of street food and I especially love Lebanese food. We started out with some fresh mint lemonade. I continually rhapsodize about my …

This week I got a little behind – I’m back now though with lots of posts for this week! Watching I’ve been completely over-excited about the start of Masterchef, soothed and amused by too many episodes of Adventure Time and ever-so-slightly sobbing over the final season of How I Met your Mother.  Listening to Amy Winehouse, Athlete and A Milli. Yep, apparently …

The Food Report: East Avenue Bakehouse

The Food Report: East Avenue Bakehouse

It’s probably no secret to readers of this blog that I love brunch. So when a new place opens that might provide a brunch destination I’m all over it. East Avenue Bakehouse opened on Bold Street a couple of weeks ago (on International Women’s Day to be precise, for this is a women-led venture!) and I’ve …

Watching Old episodes of The Office (the US version although I like both!), Mary Berry cooking some great food and silly Come Dine with Me moments.  Listening to A lot of Fiona Apple, a little smidgen of Arctic Monkeys, some strong Motown and I can’t stop singing this. Reading The Men Who Stare at Goats, which is ace so far …

The Drinks Report: Café Amaretto

The Drinks Report: Café Amaretto

I’ve always had more of an affinity with tea than coffee, but the occasional cup is a real treat. I picked up this Little’s Café Amaretto a few weeks ago. I love amaretto so this was a pretty natural choice, albeit an impulsive purchase. I really love the packaging and the idea of an instant coffee …
