The McConie Company’s Jekyll and Hyde

Earlier this week (24.05.16) my step mum and I went to see Jekyll and Hyde at The Old Vic Theatre in Waterloo, a new dance thriller choreographed by Drew McConie. If you’ve read my previous post about the Olivier Awards you may recognise Drew’s name as he won an Olivier for Best Theatre Choreographer for his work on In The Heights. I’m sure you can imagine my excitement … Continue reading The McConie Company’s Jekyll and Hyde

Wine Tasting Weekends

So I think it’s fitting to begin this post by telling you I absolutely LOVE wine. But who doesn’t? I remember trying it as a child thinking there’s no way I would warm to it, but as my parents told me (and I’m sure every adult you spoke to did), “one day you will”. I’m much more of a white wine drinker than red wine although my palette is starting to adjust to enjoy both thankfully, it seems to be a crime to drink white with a juicy (medium-rare) steak.

So what is wine tasting weekends all about you may ask? Exactly what it says on the tin – minus the weekend as it was actually only about 2 hours. On the tube to work the other day I was immersed in the latest copy of time out, I think it’s great for finding random places to visit or things to do. And right enough I found a free wine tasting event with SA Wines. Free?! Surely it can’t be free. But it was. Perfect. I booked myself and my housemates in and it was as easy as that, just turn up at 3pm in South Wimbledon. I’ve always wanted to do a wine tasting session so this was a great excuse.

Royal Leamington Spa Food & Drink Festival

A few months ago I decided to take a trip to Leamington with my step mum and sister to check out the Food & Drink festival, so what better way to begin my blog. For a free festival I have to say I was impressed! The turn out was excellent and there were so many exhibitors making sure you didn’t go hungry…the food was not going to be wasted you could say.

Choc “N” Roll’s hand made chocolates (and macarons) had an amazing shine finish to them with beautiful deco, perfect for any occasion.

We bagged three lovely different flavoured salami’s from French Favour – Fig, Olive and Sundried tomato. Try the Sundried tomato for an unusual but tasty treat!

My boyfriend being SA means that I have had the unwanted privilege of smelling and tasting the stuff… to be honest it’s not for me but I know there are some lovers out there who would’ve been thrilled with this outlet.
