The best places to Eat Out to Help Out in Leicestershire!

I bloody love eating out, so when Rishi encouraged us to eat out more to help the economy recover, I didn’t need much encouragement! In case you’ve been living under a rock, the Government’s new ‘Eat Out to Help Out’ scheme runs throughout August and gives you 50% off when you eat in at a […]

Shopping local on a sunny Saturday at The Flower Plant

Over the last few months of craziness, I (as I am sure a lot of people) have had to resort to convenience in terms of shopping and self care. This has resulted in a lot of online shopping and picking up everything I can in my weekly Tesco shop. Whilst supermarket flowers are fine, the […]

Dancebox: how dance gave me back my sparkle

I danced a lot as a child. Tap, ballet, modern, jazz, you name it! Shout out to my mum for all of the dance show costumes she had to make, particularly the fetching ‘Nelly the Elephant’ number featured below: I continued to dance throughout school and University but in recent years, due to busy work […]

June Round Up – What I Read this Month

This month my TBR list didn’t go as I had planned. Given the spotlight shone on the BLM movement by the atrocious murder of George Floyd, I felt it critical that I educate myself. I am ashamed to say I would have said “oh I’m not racist” and moved on with my day. The BLM […]

Glastonbury – top tips for the greatest festival on Earth!

I’ve been lucky enough over the years to be able to attend some great festivals: Reading and Leeds, Y Not, Lollapalooza (Chicago) and Bonnaroo being some of my favourites. However, the one I always wanted to go to had eluded me, the absolute daddy of all festivals: Glastonbury. That is, until last year when I […]

June 2020 Roccabox Review!

I’m a subscriber of 3 beauty boxes currently: Glossybox, Birchbox and Roccabox. For the last 3 months, Roccabox has consistently been delivered within the first week of the month and June’s box was no exception. The theme this month is “Selfie Ready” and contains 2 skin care items, 2 make up items and 2 hair […]

At home with Peter Pizza!

I feel like recently I’ve become and absolute expert in pizzas. Especially ones that deliver to the village that I live in. And whilst a greasy takeaway pizza sometimes hits the spot, it doesn’t always satisfy my craving for a real pizza. Enter Peter Pizza – established in 2013 in Leicestershire and on a mission […]

Virtual Flower Arranging with The Flower Plant!

One thing that has blown me away through this whole pandemic is how adaptable local businesses have been with very little notice or support. From local dance schools hosting classes online to restaurants offering takeaways and cook-a-longs, I’ve been keen to support local businesses wherever I can. So when The Flower Plant posted on their […]

5 Mini Book Reviews: What I Read in May

As we sail into another *don’t say unprecedented* month, I thought I’d briefly reflect on the books that I read in May (don’t worry, no spoilers!) Two of the books I read this month I gave 5 star reviews to so it’s definitely been a great month of reading (either that or the sun/gin is going to my head!)
