There are some brands that just seem to nail it. They get things right consistently and earn a huge amount of respect and affection from me as a result and Liz Earle is of one of them. I want to share some of my Liz Earle favourites with you that have been part of my routine on and off since I was 18. The first product that I tried from Liz Earle was their Cleanse and Polish. A cream cleanser… View Post

Dining in a train station is never going to be the kind of experience that I want to repeat as usually it’s because a train is delayed. However with the revamped Grand Central it’s nice to see so many great restaurants pop up. Giraffe is one of those places that I’ve only visited once before so I was interested to return to see what the menu is like now. My memories are of burgers from a few years ago so… View Post

I have a thing for beautiful pieces of jewellery. I love wearing dainty jewellery most days; switching them out for more statement pieces when the mood strikes. I wear a beautiful silver Tiffany necklace most days but recently I’ve been itching to get into more two tone pieces. After scouring Etsy for weeks I gave up.

Actually there are a long list of things that I look for but in short I want firmer, more even, radiant, plumper skin. So aside from investing a small fortune… View Post

Frizzenti Grand Central is a place I’ve walked past many times but never stopped at. I thought they just did fizz but how wrong I was. The beauty of Frizzenti is their ability to consistently provide Italian sparkling wine at good quality and high quantities through their tap system. The brand has operated with their prosecco on tap vans at festivals and pop up events but Birmingham has the first and only Frizzenti bar in the country. The prosecco itself is light,… View Post

A few years ago I celebrated my birthday with a visit to The Glee in Arcadian. Swiftcover and Chris Ramsey are hosting a six #SwiftGigs around the country and Birmingham’s venue was The Glee giving me the chance to revisit. I don’t visit comedy clubs very often so this was a nice change for an evening. The Glee is an intimate venue but you can fit quite a number of guests in. We like this as it means that you get… View Post
