The latest Marco Pierre White restaurant opened up right here in Milton Keynes in June and I was thrilled to hear I was invited to be one of the first to try their new afternoon tea menu. I’m a huge afternoon tea lover, which you may have already noticed, so this was a very exciting opportunity to try a new local venue! I’ve been waiting for a decent afternoon tea in Milton Keynes to become available, so I was really looking forward to trying this. Marco Pierre White is the renowned ‘rock star’ chef and top restaurateur so I had…

If going for afternoon tea can be classed as a hobby, then it is definitely my favourite one! I like to go for afternoon tea every so often, and I just love trying out new places and comparing the menus.

I was recently invited along to try out the new summer menu from The Restaurant at Broadway Casino in Birmingham. I went along with other bloggers Terri, Tereza, and Charl so we had a nice girlie catch up!

It’s a great entertainment venue, but I found it was quite quiet on our…

June was another busy but enjoyable month for me! In my last update I mentioned that I had found a property that I wanted to buy and my offer was accepted, but I was just waiting for the mortgage to be approved.

Hopefully next month I will have another update! Follow me on Instagram: @victoriajane6 The Cath Kidston summer sale started and so of course, I made a couple of purchases! I still…

Over the long Bank Holiday weekend last month, Gavin and I went to London and stayed in the Hub by Premier Inn hotel on Brick Lane for 2 nights, so I thought I’d do a review. We had a pretty busy weekend as we had tickets to see You Me At Six at Alexandra Palace on the first night, and then tickets to go to a Real Friends gig in Camden for the second night! We also had drink and dinner booked at Icebar London (check out my blog post) which was probably the highlight of our trip!  Hub by…
