Hi guys I’ve been looking over my recent posts and noticed they have ALL been about food! I realised that even though the places I’ve been writing about are all unique, I want my posts to be varied and not just all be on the same topic so today I’ve decided to write about the…

Food: The Burger Joint, Bristol

Hi guys, as you know I went to the International Bristol Balloon Fiesta a couple of weeks ago (can’t believe how quickly the time has gone!) and went for a meal at The Burger Joint in Clifton. A friend recommended the restaurant to us but I didn’t expect to love it as much as I…

Travel: Bristol International Balloon Fiesta

Hey guys, wow what a busy few weeks it has been! I’ve been lucky enough to be in Mallorca, Wales, Bristol and at home over the past fortnight and I’ve got so many stories to tell! One of my favourite moments was going to the Bristol International Balloon Fiesta (held every year at Ashton Court)…

Recipes: Rainbow summer salad

Hi guys, sorry I’ve not been very active recently I’ve been away on holiday in Mallorca. The week was full of sunny weather, fantastic wine  (plus homemade cocktails!) and amazing food.

Food: Hubble Bubble, Gloucester

Food: Banana bread

Birmingham, Akbar’s

On Saturday evening I was lucky enough to be taken out by my boyfriend and his parents to the renowned Akbar’s on Hagley Road in Birmingham. I had heard a lot about  this restaurant already and my dad has been promising to take me all year! According to the menu and website they were awarded…

Birmingham: Cherry Red’s

9th June marked the halfway point through my university exams, yay! This called for celebration and lunch out at Cherry Red’s, somewhere I had been wanting to try for weeks because it’s independent charm appealed to me whenever I walked past it. The cafe/bar/restaurant is in a good location near the back of New Street…

Birmingham: Running along the canal paths

I’ve set myself the challenge of running a 10k by the end of my first year at uni (seemingly impossible at the moment!). I have never been able to run this far before, but I want to take part in the Birmingham 10k next year. My accommodation is on a big hill so if I want to…
