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…

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 also had drink and dinner booked at Icebar London (check out my blog post) which was probably the highlight of our trip!  Hub by…

Pretty copper homeware in metallic and gold tones are still a hot trend, often alongside a marble background. I’m a bit late to the whole thing, but luckily Red Candy have come to my rescue and now I have officially jumped on the bandwagon. And I’m not ashamed to confess my new love for copper homeware accessories and pineapples!  Copper Homeware Accessories  Gold Pineapple Candle Holder Possibly my favourite new addition is this tropical gold pineapple, which is actually a candle holder that would probably hold a tealight, but I’ve been using it purely for aesthetic purposes!
