I’ve actually been looking for an alternative to crisps and dips (it’s one of my weaknesses) and I think I may have found it! Over the weekend I tried Sweet Chilli Ryvita Thins sent to me by the lovely Laura at the Work Perk.
A friend and I recently went to the Dove Spa in Egham for a ‘Two of a Kind’ treatment and enjoyed a back and shoulder massage, a facial, foot massage and head massage! It cost £95 and for the range of treatments, the price was definitely worth it and perfect for a bit of pampering. My favourite part was the back and shoulder massage – but who doesn’t love a good massage?! Continue reading
The first and last time I had cheese fondue was when me and my friends were snowboarding in the French Alps. It was food of the Alpine gods! I’ve never had it since, but recently ‘the work perk’ offered to send a couple of packs of Emmi Swiss Cheese Fondue to try, I couldn’t resist! After tasting it again, I don’t think many people would be able to resist! Continue reading
Just a last minute entry for TravelSupermarket’s capture the colour competition! The idea is for bloggers to share their photos that capture the colours blue, green, yellow, white and red. I had a long look through my photos and I know both my photography skills and camera could be improved, but here are my entries: Continue reading
There’s something about airports that I love (mainly shopping, restaurants, the pub and the fact that I’m going on holiday!). For my flight to Mauritius I picked up a few ‘freebies’ from magazines including Ciate nail polish, Benefit’s that girl and Body Shop eyeliners:
The vibe in the restaurant was cool and relaxed which made us feel comfortable straight away. We started off with a couple of cocktails each. I had a rum number described as “a secret mix of rums and tropical fruit”, which was pretty strong!
After being seated by our friendly waitress, we listened to her recommendations and ended up skipping the starters and ordered a 900g Porterhouse steak from the chef’s daily cuts with triple cooked chips, asparagus, potatoes and peppercorn sauce on the side.
The steak was so good that what I write probably won’t do it justice. Every bit of it was tasty and tender, down to the seared fat… my mouth is watering as I write this blog!
After this point we were stuffed but couldn’t say no to dessert. I ordered a peanut butter shortbread with salted caramel ice cream whilst my boyfriend had a honeycomb cheesecake. We really could have done with just ordering one to share, but we were too greedy and they were good nonetheless.
The whole meal and a bottle of (mid range) wine came to £200, which was quite pricey but worth every penny, I felt that we also ordered more than we needed.
The dress code was quite casual so there was no need to worry about dressing up (just make sure you have a loose number on!).
If you love steak, one word – go!
