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…

So on 1st September I became a very proud home owner! *Cue awful cheesy photo of me holding up keys in front of front door*. Soon I plan to do another blog post about the buying process that I went through, along with a timeline on how long it took. But for now I just wanted to show you the place! I first viewed the property back in May and I fell in love with it right away. It was the first (and only!) place that I viewed, and I was lucky that the owner was after a quick sale…

I feel like I’m currently the only person in the UK who hasn’t gone on holiday yet! So this post might be a little late for most of you this year, but I still have another 2 weeks to wait until my holiday. I’m off to Rhodes at the beginning of next month and I cannot wait!

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!

Broadway Casino is located inside the Broadway Plaza complex which also includes a cinema, bowling, and a few fast food/high street chain eateries. It’s a great entertainment venue, but I found it was quite quiet on our…

I was born in Milton Keynes and have lived on the outskirts of the town my whole life. In fact, I have just bought my first home there as I love it so much and wouldn’t want to move somewhere new. MK is a bit of a weird place, and it’s hard to explain to someone who has never been before. As a Milton Keynes blogger, I thought I’d put together some top Milton Keynes facts and share with you some of the reasons why I love MK!
