Dinner at Pizza Express, Charing Cross

Pizza Express was always our go to restaurant when my sister and I were younger. There was something for everyone on the menu and we always enjoyed our food. We hadn’t been for a while though, so when my mum suggested it for dinner after our trip to Somerset House  I was more than happy […]

Fancy a snack? How to satisfy those 3pm hunger cravings…

Light Bites     Since starting work I’ve noticed that I always get hungry at about 3pm. It’s a few hours after lunch and still a few hours to go in the office. Recently I’ve been looking for something that can fill me up that’s both tasty and healthy. This is where Light Bites have […]

Lemon, Blueberry and White Chocolate Cake Recipe

    There’s nothing better than a good cup of tea, great cake and a catch up with friends. Last weekend I decided to make a cake for just this reason and I went for one of my fail-safe cake bakes! This is a family favourite that we all love. It’s light, full of flavour […]

Joe’s Southern Table & Bar Review

Joe’s Southern Table & Bar has become my go to bar in Covent Garden for cocktails – it’s a good place to meet friends for drinks and nibbles after work and I’ve also visited with my parents. They have happy hour 4pm- 6pm Sunday to Friday and their cocktail choice is good with all the usual […]

Flat Iron Covent Garden Review

I’d heard lots of good things about Flat Iron and was recommended to go by a work friend, so I suggested it as a place to meet some friends for dinner. They (annoyingly) don’t take bookings – although perhaps this is a sign of their popularity- so you have to go to the door to […]

I’m really lucky that I’ve got a great group at work and am meeting new people all the time. Although you spend every day together it’s important to spend some time together […]
