Following on from my blog post on our micro break in Birmingham, I wanted to share with you our amazing meal at Bar + Block Steakhouse in the city centre. We were invited along to try out their new ‘Bottomless Brunch’ which includes unlimited prosecco, hot drinks and juice for £15 for 90 minutes when you order any dish.  Bottomless Brunch Although the restaurant looks like a trendy independent restaurant, it is actually part of the Beefeater Grill chain, although it had a better menu and generally a much warmer atmosphere. The space is nice and large and airy with…

In case you guys haven’t already realised… Christmas is upon us! I cannot believe how quickly November has gone and that December is so close.  Therefore this blog post is a little bit different to normal; this is the first part in my series of Christmas gift guides!  I love reading these types of posts on other peoples blogs as I find them really useful for getting ideas on the latest pressies available and hopefully you will find this gift guide helpful if you need ideas for a beauty lover.  Aside from the typical gifts of the latest eye shadow…

Last weekend Terri and I got the train into Birmingham to have a little mini break in the UK’s second city courtesy of Marriott.

With the colder weather drawing in it’s time for me to bring out the tights, boots and coats all over again. As much as I love summer, I always kind of look forward to wrapping up all nice and cosy for winter!  One of my favourite autumn/winter fashion pieces is this tweed mini skirt that I bought in the Joules sale last year.

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…
