Foodie Friday – Trying out Las Iguanas’ New Seasonal Menu

Last Friday, Ed and I went along to Las Iguanas’ Bournemouth branch to have a date night and try out their new seasonal menu. I haven’t actually gone on a restaurant review visit with Ed for a long time as I took over my local blogging network the Bournemouth Bloggers this time last year and have mostly gone along as a group instead. It was nice to go and experience...

5 Tips for Kickstarting Your Health & Fitness this Season

I don’t know about you, but when autumn comes around, I feel my motivation slipping when it comes to my health and fitness. The darker mornings and evenings can leave me feeling sleepy and lethargic and all I want to do is hibernate under the duvet with all the junk food. Not keeping on top of my exercise and diet can have a detrimental affect not only on my body...

Foodie Friday – Brewhouse & Kitchen’s New Season Menu

This week the Bournemouth Bloggers were invited along to the Bournemouth branch of Brewhouse & Kitchen to try out the new season’s menu. I hadn’t actually been to Brewhouse & Kitchen before as last time I was invited along I wasn’t able to go and Ed went in my place. He had told me it was a nice venue and that the food was good so I was looking forward...

Foodie Friday – Quick and Easy Lunch Ideas for Freelancers

I wasn’t entirely sure about the title for this post. I don’t think you have to be a freelancer to enjoy the lunch ideas I am sharing, but equally I think you do need to either work from home, or work somewhere with access to cooking facilities in order to create the lunches so I figured I would stick with it… I am by no means at all a good...

Foodie Friday – Quick & Simple Family Meals with a Halogen Oven

I’ve put together something a little different for you this week. Although I enjoy going out and visiting lots of local restaurants, I am also a big fan of eating together at home as a family. Luckily Ed’s job allows him to be home with us early enough for us all to eat together and, as the weather gets colder, I am looking forward to lots of comforting meals to...

Cocktails at Cosy Club

On Wednesday I spent a day working at a local social media management company. By the end of the day I was absolutely shattered, and didn’t overly feel like doing anything other than crawling home to bed to sleep. However, I had been invited along by the lovely people at Cosy Club to attend a cocktail masterclass event with some of the the other Bournemouth Bloggers. I hadn’t actually been...

Foodie Friday – Breakfast with the Bournemouth Bloggers at The Real Eating Company

Last Saturday, I shook off my headache (self inflicted from one too many wines the night before) and headed over to The Real Eating Company in the centre of Bournemouth for a breakfast event with the Bournemouth Bloggers. It isn’t often I go out for breakfast, and I rarely meet up with friends specifically at this time of the day, so it made for a nice change. I was joined...

Foodie Friday – Sampling La Piccola Italia’s Bottomless Prosecco Brunch

I am really fortunate to get invited to my fair share of local blogging events, especially since taking over my local blogging network – the Bournemouth Bloggers last year, but a few weeks ago an invite landed in my inbox which made my eyes light up. La Piccola Italia, a local Italian restaurant, had invited myself and several other local bloggers along to sample their bottomless prosecco brunch. The event...

Attending the 1805 VIP Launch Event

Since taking over the Bournemouth Blogger Network last November, Ed’s kind of gotten used to me being invited to events, and it isn’t often he is phased by my sometimes hectic social calendar. However, when the invite came through for the VIP launch event for the newest Chinese restaurant to open in Bournemouth, his eyes lit up when I told him I was able to bring a plus one. Ed...

Summer Has Arrived at Be At One Bournemouth

If you follow me on Instagram, you may have seen that I have been under a lot of stress lately, with the freelance work I am doing for a local PR company really kicking it up a notch as their event arrives this weekend. I have been burning the candle at both ends, and have generally been taking on a little too much work, meaning I haven’t been as active...
