Friends will always be the funny and love-able, easy-watching tv show that can never be replaced. Ten seasons, 256 episodes of funny moments, sticky situations, relationships, love, friendship, and story lines many could relate to, made it a huge hit with an incredible fan base. So big in fact, that Friendsfest has now sold out two years in a row! With Kim unable to go due to a wedding planned for the same weekend this year, I was lucky enough to get the chance to buy her tickets…and boy was it worth it. Friendsfest sees the set, including Joey and Chandlers flat, the iconic hallway, and Rachel and Monica’s place tour the UK. Along with this, there’s Central Perk, the famous yellow taxi, two other…

Tacos became a celebrity of the food world last year, with a number of taco spots opening their doors, including El Pastor and Breddos. The latter, raising up the street food stakes from where it started as a taco shack in Hackney, to its own permanent restaurant in Clerkenwell. I fell in with Breddos back during the first couple years of Street Feast, when they only had one location, on one floor, with a handful of bars and street food vendors. The Baja Fish Tacos, which are still on the menu, featuring lightly battered fish, cabbage, habanero and lime mayonnaise won me over –  the recipe might have been altered in the last 5 years, but they’re still one of my fave tacos. Since opening…

A standard cup of coffee just wasn’t going to cut it for international coffee day this year – THE coffee day when you have the excuse (if you need one) to indulge those caffeine cravings with something fancy. Don’t get me wrong, you cant beat a perfectly brewed flat white with creamy milk poured into the mug to create a pretty pattern on a regular day. But on these other occasions, coffee cocktails are the way to go. Especially over brunch! I was lucky enough to be invited to brunch with Tia Maria for International coffee day – the dark coffee liqueur. Taking place at St. Barts Brewery in Smithfield, almost the whole restaurant come bar was buzzing with life, groups nattering and people tucking…

Fajitas are always a winner. Ready in 20 minutes. Mid-week, quick & easy dinner. We used to buy those sachets of seasoning. You know the ones. The individual packets which say there’s enough to shake over meat for four, but you pretty much use it all up for two. they always worked well, but aren’t always the most economical way to enjoy a fajita dinner. I recently decided that we had enough spices on our condiment shelf to whip up a seasoning ourselves, and started trying out different combos. Each tasty in its own way, this one had a smoky touch which reminded me of other seasonings we’d previously had. It didn’t quite have the kick we always look for, so the extra bird eye chilies…

Ok, so this isn’t my usual type of post. But I feel I need to discuss this. Health is so important and I’m having this constant debate with myself. So I thought writing about it on my little space, and perhaps seeing what you all think, might help settle something once and for all…so here goes… You know you’ve tried your utmost hardest, and to be honest you’re pretty darn good at what you do, but you’re starting to think and question as to whether it’s all worth it. Yep, that’s me right now. Don’t get me wrong I do enjoy what I do most of the time. It’s social. It can be fun – the culture at the agency I’m currently at is awesome…
