Over the last 6 months, I spent a lot of my time with a professional pantomime company, at PwC, in the cast of Sleeping Beauty 2019. This was a very special experience for me as I’ve always dreamed of performing in the West End but never did I think that would come true! So as we pack away the glitter and costumes for another year I wanted to share my experience with you. Continue reading The PwC Pantomime
I woke up this morning at 7am to a beautiful sunny day which only means one thing… it finally feels like summer! On the way into work I was contemplating my plans over the next few months, there are so many things to look forward to. For sure there is no better place to spend your summer than in the great city of London (minus the tube). There is an endless list of pop-ups, festivals, outdoor cinemas, bars, street food vendors and parties, you name it London has it. I’m pretty sure you could do something different every evening until the end of summer and still not have exhausted your options.
This time last week I was gearing up to walk a marathon. It was a bit of a last minute decision, my sister wasn’t able to make it so I (some would say stupidly) offered to walk in her place to complete the team. Now I knew it wasn’t going to be easy, especially with nil training under my belt, but I have youth and fitness on my side. It’s not something that I would advise however people have done crazier things and it turned out to be a fantastic experience. So why a marathon?
Some may say the craze for street food markets has diminished however I disagree… they’re only getting better with time and the hunger for new food stalls and a variety of flavours and ingredients is only on the high. To be honest, what better way to test and improve your menu than setting up shop in one of these markets where you can attract a large audience and receive real time feedback? Some of the best restaurants around today started as a pop up and took off due to popular demand. And with the likes of Instagram, Twitter and Facebook – word of mouth and social sharing is your biggest marketing play.
London is famous for it’s weekend brunches. The latest breakfast trend in the capital is heading out for brunch with friends, only with unlimited alcohol (usually prosecco and mimosas) for a 2 hour window. Great right? Or very dangerous, I’ll let you decide.
So today I was invited to an impromptu celebratory lunch with work colleagues which was lovely, and lets face it, you’re not going to turn down a lunch! When I realised we were heading to Jose Pizarro’s restaurant in Bermondsey I was even more excited – I had never been before but it looked incredible and I absolutely love Spanish cuisine. We were seated in … Continue reading Pizarro
