Hi....again

Monday, 30 November 2020

 


Hello! It's been a while...again. I apparently am no good at balancing my life because as soon as things get busy or turn into utter shit like the whole of 2020 has done, I disappear again, my bad. Blogging has always been a hobby for me & unfortunately is always the first thing that gives when life gets a little hectic but I've decided to slowly pick it back up because it's a nice little bit of escapism to have which I think we all need sometimes! 

Outside-In Food Court | Portsmouth

Monday, 9 March 2020
* Press visit*

Recently the food scene around the country has been having a bit of a change up with a lot of the focus being on Independents & street food vendors. At the moment, the place to go for a different kind of dining experience is Portsmouth, specifically *Outside-In Food Court, I  haven't experienced a dining concept like this before but I am 110% here for it.

*Dermalogica Body Collection

Monday, 2 March 2020
*This post contains gifted items*
Okay, so I accidentally took a bit of a break thanks to Christmas, a lot of hours at work & a lot of illness, I seemed to catch something else just as I think I'm okay again! Anyway, this is a very delayed post but you're still getting it because you need to know about these new addition to *Dermalogica's extensive skincare range. Just when you think they couldn't possibly have space for even more products they drop a whole new collection!

God's House Tower Southampton

Monday, 2 December 2019
* Press evening*

Right then, get comfortable, it's going to be a long one! Southampton is bursting with history just waiting to be discovered, I always think if someone say's "Southampton is boring" then they most definitely have not been to the right places, there's so much to see & do as well as an abundance of history just on the doorstep. The most recent historic building that has been opened to the public is God's House Tower. The majority of my life has been spent in Southampton & I still stumble upon things I never knew existed & still learning about the vast history of the city, because there's a lot.

GHT is a new arts & heritage venue & I have to say, it's very unique. Think art gallery but far from the traditional type of gallery, everything has been jazzed up a little & somehow they've made a 700 year old building seem modern but without stripping it of its original glory. God's House Tower has been many things over the years including part of medieval defence, a place of refuge for pilgrims, the town jail, mortuary, mill & warehouse, Museum of Archaeology & now an arts & heritage venue.   Dan Crow & his team have spent 7 long years breathing life back into the 13th century gatehouse to gift it back to the public & wow, should we be grateful.

Wahaca - A Taste of Mexican Street Food

Sunday, 24 November 2019
*Complementary Meal*

*Wahaca popped up in Southampton a while ago now but I've only recently visited & realised I am fully here for it. I've always loved Mexican food (even though my lactose intolerant body wishes I didn't) so I have no idea why it took me so long to try out their menu & when I did, I knew I would 100% be popping back. My most recent visit was with Southampton Bloggers to celebrate Dia de Los Muertos, although slightly late, while learning some Mexican history along the way.
