A day out at Whipsnade Zoo

*This post contains affiliate link After I had my yearly trip to the Philippines cancelled because of the rona, I was disappointed so I booked a little cheap holiday to Spain. Alas, it also got cancelled, and further to that in the middle of my annual leave lockdown two happened. Not to sound like a spoiled brat, but having annual […]

What are the Restaurant Rules in my Tier?

*This post contains affiliate links. Let’s be honest: whatever your political affiliation, Boris has made it pretty confusing with his new “tier” system. I genuinely didn’t have a clue what my tier, tier 2 meant for eating out. So I’ve tried to decipher the government garble and explain what the rules are for restaurants and pubs in your tier. Restaurant […]

Cafe Rouge, Windsor

I know what you are thinking. “Why is this basic bitch telling me about another chain restaurant?”. Well, I don’t know if you have seen this news kicking about anywhere, but there is currently a pandemic. Rather than getting invited to reviews or going to restaurants I want to try off of my own back, I’ve been trying to just […]

Prezzo, Lakeside

One of the things I wanted to do when I changed the direction of my blog to focus on food was to make sure I reviewed places to suit all budgets.

I tried to make Yorkshire puddings for the first time yesterday and they didn’t rise (although I fully blame […]

There’s a lot of horrific food knocking about in Basildon. Not content with having one of the poorest hospitals in the country, a giant mock “Hollywood” sign and the most unhelpful train station in the world, Basildon has a knack for taking crap chain restaurants and bunching them all together for the convenience of the inexperienced palette. If you have […]

Three Days In Iceland

Is Iceland worth the money? I’m going to start this article with an admission that is going to make me sound incredibly uncool. I LOVE the Eurovision song contest. I’ve watched it my whole life and it is very rare I will miss it unless I’m working abroad. So, what has that got to do with Iceland? Well ever since […]

We Heart Mondays Christmas Food Festival

Haven’t you just always wanted to go to a London food festival? Because the We Heart Mondays launch event was so good – I really didn’t need much convincing to go to their Christmas food festival. After trying all of the yummy treats on offer at the launch event, there was no way I was going to miss out on […]
