If you follow me on Instagram you will already know this, but if not then I’ll tell you now that I was the happiest little Friends fanatic on Monday, because it was finally time to visit FriendsFest. I actually bought these tickets a while ago as a surprise for Luke, but if I’m honest I’m not sure which of us was more excited when the day rolled around. We had the best time. FriendsFest is moving around the country on its tour, but at the moment it’s set in the grounds of Blenheim Palace. Luckily, we had dry and pretty warm…

Indian food has been my favourite cuisine for a long, long time. Especially now that it’s one of the only cuisines where I can eat pretty much everything! The lovely team over at Maaya in Milton Keynes were kind enough to invite me and Luke over for dinner this week, and it was fab. We ate far too much, but enjoyed it all and I am pretty sure we’ll be back again soon. The lighting in these photos may be not-so-good, but I can tell you that these starters were pretty great. As is tradition whenever Luke and I have Indian…

I’ve found it. The best gluten free breakfast in Milton Keynes. In fact, I’m almost disappointed that I didn’t find it sooner!

Have you ever seen gluten free eggs benedict on a menu? I hadn’t (until now). Eggs benedict is my…

This weekend Luke and I celebrated our anniversary with a seriously fancy dinner date, at The Crazy Bear in Beaconsfield. I have to admit I was expecting a lot, because let’s face it it is not a cheap restaurant, but my expectations were met and exceeded. Our meal was amazing. (The lighting, however, was not so great. So, excuse the photo quality!) Of course we started with the drinks. As I was being a lovely girlfriend and driving so that Luke could have a beer, I wasn’t able to test drive The Crazy Bear’s cocktail menu, but I can tell…

  I drink a lot of coffee. And I spend a lot of time in Costa. So, when the opportunity came up to join in on one of their masterclasses (and donate to their charity, the Costa Foundation, at the same time), I couldn’t resist. Now, I do have to warn you that, as it turns out, I am useless at making coffee. It’s really not my forte. But I had a great time and I supported a good cause, so I’m going to tell you all about it anyway…     Our masterclass took place at the Costa over…
