5 Current Fave Foodie Spots in Bournemouth

I make no secret of the fact that I love food. I would quite happily make every social occasion I attend involve eating if I could, and I have been to a fair few of the local restaurants in the Bournemouth area. My favourite places to go to eat are always changing, but there are some spots that I go back to again and again because the food is so...

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.

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...

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...

Food & Fitness Friday – Date Night with Pizza Express at BH2 Leisure 

With three kids including seven month old Benjamin who has reached a very clingy stage of his development, it’s hard to remember we’re a couple as well as Mummy and daddy.  Once a month Ed and I try to find a night where we make the effort and go out without the kids. Fortunately my mum lives a few minutes away and is happy to babysit for us, which I...
