So it might be snowing across the UK today, but I promise you that spring is coming! Spring/summer fashion trends are my favourite because generally it means pretty floral prints galore. This post which is in collaboration with MK1 Shopping & Leisure Park is taking a sneak peek at what to expect for Spring 2017 on the high street.  MK1 Shopping & Leisure Park  I’m a Milton Keynes blogger, so this is my local retail park located in Bletchley, just outside of central Milton Keynes. It’s a fairly new shopping destination that opened in 2012 which is located just next…

My parents have their birthdays two days apart from each other, so each year I take them both for a birthday meal somewhere different.  This year we decided to head to our local Jamie’s Italian restaurant which is in Central Milton Keynes.   We all love Italian food so we thought this would be perfect to suit everyone! We had all been together once before a year or so ago, and as we enjoyed it so much we thought we’d go along to try out their most recent menu. Jamie’s Italian  Unfortunately when we arrived we were told by our lovely…

A few weeks ago after work I went for a little evening out and girlie catch up with another Milton Keynes blogger, Hazel.  Here’s my review of our amazing Cuban meal at cocktail bar and restaurant Revolucion De Cuba in Milton Keynes.  We’d been once before and we can always count on it for a fun evening with a great atmosphere. We went on a Wednesday which is their Salsa night and there was an amazing group of dancers in the middle of the restaurant dancing the night away!  Revolucion De Cuba I always like the atmosphere at Revolucion De…

So, after almost 26 years I was kind of ashamed to say that I had never been to a hairdressers. Some people are amazed by this because surely everyone has had their hair cut! And yes, I have had my hair cut. When I was little my Mum’s hairdresser friend would cut it for me in our kitchen, and then when I was at uni I had it done at a local college a couple of times, but I’d never been to a real hairdressers! Lifestyle Salons Newport Pagnell I am not very experimental with my hair, so I tended…

One of the local Ember Inns pubs in Milton Keynes has recently undergone a fresh new refurbishment and I was kindly invited to try them out.  I frequently pass the Ship Ashore pub in Willen as it is just over the road from my office, but I’d never actually tried it out before. We popped in one weekday evening to enjoy a new dining experience at the pub which is ran by Ember Inns.  The new refurb has left the pub feeling very cosy and homely inside, with mismatched furniture and rustic touches. I really liked the atmosphere inside and…
