Last weekend I was invited to try out the new summer menu at Browns Brasserie & Bar in Milton Keynes, and I took both of my parents along with me (they deserve a treat once in a while!). We went on a Saturday afternoon, and when we arrived we were shown to our table at the back of the restaurant. I’d never been to Browns before, so I wasn’t sure what kind of place it was, but I was pleasantly surprised. It’s definitely more of a restaurant than a bar, and they even serve afternoon tea!   Starters Their summer menu…

Apologies for the delay in getting this post up; I’ve been pretty absent from the online world lately. But last month I was invited for a lovely family meal at my local Jamie’s Italian restaurant in Milton Keynes. I went along with my parents and we enjoyed a 3 course dinner on a sunny Monday evening after work.   Starters The staff there were really welcoming and friendly and were extremely helpful. We were seated in a cosy little booth and given our menus. For starters, we shared three small side plates; Italian Nachos, Crispy Squid, and Sweet Mini Chilli…

My previous post that I did in the summer on the Milton Keynes development plans is actually one of my most ever viewed posts, so I wanted to update it.

MK1 Shopping Park @ Bletchley In my opinion, The Centre:MK is pretty much dead now. And from now on, I have no reason to ever visit there again. It may have once been the largest and best shopping centre in…

As promised, at the weekend I head over the the MK Handmade and Vintage Market in Middleton Hall, thecentre:MK. This is held a few times a year, and the hall is transformed into a large retro market, full of handmade and original vintage pieces. There were many stalls selling gorgeous hand sewn soft furnishings and gifts, a couple of cupcake stalls, and many real vintage clothing and homeware stalls. Go and check it out if you’re a Milton Keynes Blogger! My favourite stalls were the vintage homeware stalls, so many pieces of gorgeous china and floral goodies! Everything was very…

Milton Keynes Primark opening date in Bletchley, Milton Keynes has now been announced here!! I thought I would do this post as I know a few local Milton Keynes bloggers would be interested to find out the facts about this, and also there are many people Googling the rumours and landing on my page! Some of you may have heard the exciting news that Primark is coming to Milton Keynes. Last week I attended the exhibition in Middleton Hall on the new development plans for Milton Keynes city centre. The Centre MK Alliance group therefore produced a plan to meet…

Over the weekend, my best friend Gabriella came to stay at my house, and we visted my local shopping centre, The Centre:MK. Even though it was the last shopping weekend before Christmas, it wasn’t that busy, which is good 🙂 We wondered around the shops, bought some yummy cupcakes, and ate a delicious lunch at Nandos (chicken pitta – amazeballs!).  First stop: Shopping. Eyeing up the pretty things in Accessorize, and looking forward to when the sales start!   Perving on the Soap and Glory offer of the week in Boots. There were still plenty left on Saturday.   A new…
