Antler Newcastle VIP Launch

Antler Newcastle VIP Launch

Newcastle is going through some amazing changes right now with the introduction of plenty of new exciting things to see and do. The newest place to arrive is Antler. I was pretty excited to be invited to the VIP Launch for Antler, the new alpine themed bar in Newcastle. Inspired by the alpine ski lodges from Austria and Switzerland and serving Bavarian food, it’s definitely going to be an exciting addition to the Newcastle nightlife. Located at 55 Degrees North, it’s right in the centre of the city. A few minutes walk from either Central Station or Monument, and also…

Checking out the new Mcdonald’s!

Checking out the new Mcdonald’s!

McDonald’s has been part of my life since forever. When I was a kid, my Mum used to save happy meal toys from when she had them and give them to me ( I had a lot of them!). At university, it’s become a ritual on a night out to grab a McDonald’s before the taxi home! So when they invited me to go behind-the-scenes at their restaurant at the Silver Link I was quite excited to see what new exciting changes they’ve made!  We entered the restaurant and were greeted by the lovely staff who gave us a bit…

Food: Lunch at the Dog Leap Cafe

Food: Lunch at the Dog Leap Cafe

I love that even though I have lived in Newcastle for 5 years nearly now, I can still find new places that I’ve never visited before. Through blogging I’ve come to explore so many cool little nooks around Newcastle and when I found out that Dog Leap Cafe had opened, I was excited to try it out… The Dog Leap Cafe is hidden at the east end of St. Nicholas’ cathedral in Newcastle City Centre. Close to the train station and the Quayside, it’s situated in an easy to find part of the city. Launched earlier this year it is…

YoSushi: Flavours of Japan Menu Tasting!

YoSushi: Flavours of Japan Menu Tasting!

I’ve never really been one for pushing myself out of my comfort zone. Especially when it comes to food. I like to enjoy my food and I tend to eat the same meals over and over again… So when Gemma invited me to join her at the tasting event for the new YoSushi Flavours of Japan evening, I decided to be brave and go for it. Gemma and I have met at a couple of blogger events previously and this would be a good opportunity to get to know each other better! With DSLR in tow, I headed to the…

GRAZE Blogger Challenge!

GRAZE Blogger Challenge!

I’m really getting into snacking healthily again, and am finding small portions of nuts, fruit or cereal bars on the go are stopping me from snacking on things like chocolate! So when Graze said they wanted me to try their summer blogger challenge, I said yes in the hope of finding something new I liked! I only recently started liking cereal and biscuit bars but I was really pleased to see plenty of nuts and dried fruit in my little pots when they arrived! I started off the day with some golden syrup porridge. I’m really glad I have found…

Bread machine Focaccia!

Bread machine Focaccia!

When I started blogging I had no idea that I was going to go down the line of trying to use it to improve my health and fitness. I am slowly learning more about food and how to sort out my diet in order to lose weight and live a healthier lifestyle.  I thought taking my blog in a foodie and health and fitness direction would help me become more organised. I have enjoyed learning how to cook roast chickens, make soup from fresh ingredients and now I want to get better at cooking and baking in general.  I adore…

Ninja Burgers at Bar 28

Ninja Burgers at Bar 28

Who doesn’t love burgers ! Thursday evening was an eventful evening. We had been invited along to the Launch of Ninja Burgers at Bar 28 in town, and as students, we were not saying no to free food! We grabbed an Uber and headed into town to Bar 28, a bar settled above the high street in Nelson Street.  With our ‘free drinks’ bands tied on we settled down at the far end of the bar with our drinks and got chatting to other bloggers. The bar itself has a most unusual style! The seated area up the step is…

My Healthy Hot Chocolate Alternative

My Healthy Hot Chocolate Alternative

Hot chocolate is something a lot of people like to indulge in. A nice warm, sweet drink at the end of the day before bed or maybe with a good book. I will confess I’ve never been a fan. I tried it once as a kid and hated it. I then moved to York, which has a chocolate factory and we used to be able to smell burning chocolate in the air when we were outside and the smell lingered and linked to hot chocolate for me.  I have to admit, I wish I could drink it. I feel I…
