Foodie Friday – 5 Food Places I Love in Bournemouth Right Now

I love food, and one of my favourite things to do is go out for a meal. Bournemouth has a huge amount of restaurants, with plenty of different cuisines available to choose from. These are five of my current favourite places to eat. The Real Greek Ever since my visit to The Real Greek earlier this year I’ve been lusting over their halloumi fries. I also loved how sociable our...

Testing Out the Odeon Experience with Bh2 Leisure

On Sunday, myself and Louise were invited along to Odeon at Bh2 Leisure to see the new Peter Rabbit film and experience the service that puts Odeon ahead of their competitors when it comes to a visit to the cinema. Louise’s little boy hadn’t been to the cinema before, but Carly was quick to put him at ease, chatting away on the car journey. When we arrived at the cinema,...

Experiencing The Real Greek with Bournemouth Bloggers

Having got married recently in Santorini, you might be under the impression that Ed and I are big fans of Greek food. In actual fact, our time on the island getting married was the first, and only time, I’ve sampled any Greek cuisine. I’m what you would probably refer to as a bit of a fussy eater generally. I’m not as bad as my Mum, who really doesn’t like dishes...

Our Night at the Grosvenor Casino with the Bournemouth Bloggers

A couple of weeks ago myself and several of the Bournemouth Bloggers went along to The Grosvenor Casino in the town centre to have a look around, try out their food and drink menu and have a little lesson in the art of Roulette and Blackjack. I was very excited for a night away from being a Mum and got stuck in straight away with one of the delicious cocktails...

Foodie Friday – Level8 Festive Afternoon Tea – The Bournemouth Bloggers Christmas Meet-Up

Something very exciting happened last month. The lovely girl who ran Bournemouth Bloggers, Freya, announced she was moving to London and she handed the day to day running of the network over to myself. I have some really exciting ideas for the group going into 2018 but first of all I wanted to meet up with some of the members for a chance to chat about what they want from...

Foodie Friday – A Visit to Baffi Pizza with Bournemouth Bloggers

A few weeks ago I took over the day to day running of my local blogging network – Bournemouth Bloggers. So far I am really enjoying it and have arranged a Christmas meet-up, which is next Tuesday, where I will have the chance to discuss plans for the group going into 2018. Part of running the network involves arranging review visits with local restaurants and when I saw that a...

Creating my Perfect Christmas Party Makeup Look with MeMeMe Cosmetics

Last week I was invited down to Beales department store, in Bournemouth, where MeMeMe Cosmetics had recently opened up a stand, for their blogger event. I will be honest, before the event I hadn’t really heard of the brand before, so I wasn’t sure what to expect when I headed over before my review visit to The Stable. The event was very casual, with those invited able to attend anytime...

Mummy Mondays – The Perfect Gift for Mums this Christmas with Times To Treasure

With Christmas now under a month away (eek), thoughts are definitely centred around the perfect gift for those close to you. The most beautiful gift I’ve ever received before was a necklace with the footprints of my eldest two children. I was devastated when I lost it a couple of years ago after a house move so when the lovely Grainne from Times to Treasure in Poole said she would...

Foodie Friday – A Carnival Christmas at Las Iguanas

So last night Ed and I were invited down to our local Las Iguanas in Bournemouth to sample their festive menu, and I was so excited – South American food & Christmas are two of my favourite things! This year Las Iguanas is open throughout the entire festive season, including Christmas Day itself, meaning if you fancy something a little different from turkey this year, you can head on over...

Beauty – My Autumnal Bridal Makeup Look with Blushing Brides of Bournemouth

I posted yesterday about our UK wedding blessing and reception and how amazing our suppliers were. Today I wanted to focus this post on one in particular, my lovely friend Sally who runs Blushing Brides in Bournemouth. Sally did both my hair and makeup for the reception, and I wanted to share with you today the products she used to create my makeup look. Estee lauder smoothing Primer Estee Lauder...
