Is there anything more quintessentially British than a good mug of tea? The first thing I do when I have friends round is to put the kettle on and some of my favourite things – afternoon tea, a good catch up over tea and cake or cosy nights in with tea and biscuits in front of the TV all revolve around it.
To celebrate London Cocktail Week (2nd– 8th October 2017) Discover Kale offered to send me a cocktail making kit. I love kale (controversial perhaps but I genuinely do love it!) and I love cocktails (they’re one of few alcoholic drinks I ever have!) but I wasn’t sure I could see any connection between the two! Nevertheless I agreed – I’ve never tried to make my own cocktails before and was excited to try! – and was sent a champagne saucer (I had no idea what it was before I read the blogger’s brief!), a metal cocktail shaker and a bottle of Pin Gin – Lincolshire’s premier gin created by Bottomley Distillers.
.. and let’s be honest, the only way I’m ever going to be “watching what I eat”!
(Can we take a minute to appreciate how great that tag line is!?)

Last Friday I was invited down to Topgolf to try out their new menu. This was my second visit to Topgolf, and this time it was all about food! I absolutely loved the experience the first time round – it’s such an awesome concept and I had so much fun (you can read more about my experience here) so I couldn’t wait to go back for a second time and see what new dishes they had to offer 🙂
For months before our wedding we were wondering if we were missing something. So many people had told me that planning their wedding had been the hardest and most stressful thing they’d ever done, yet we were completely relaxed and wondering what people could possibly worry about. Maybe we just got lucky that our suppliers and venue were so incredible, maybe the significance of the day didn’t really sink in (I’m still not sure it has!) or maybe it was because I’ve never been one of those who has ever pictured a “dream wedding” in my head but I wanted to post about the people/companies who really went above and beyond to make our day run so seamlessly so that they get the credit (and hopefully future business) that they deserve. This is not a sponsored post and I’m not affiliated with any of the companies or people mentioned in this post – any suppliers that we weren’t impressed with/wouldn’t recommend simply aren’t mentioned 🙂
