Current Netflix finds

I don’t really watch a lot of terrestrial television. Firstly, I don’t think there’s anything that’s worth watching on the box at the moment and secondly I go out a lot. That means I need my viewing to work around me, which is why I love Netflix as much as I do. Late last year, I wrote a post on six¬†Netflix box sets to see you through the winter. Since one of my current favourite things to do is binge watch box series on Netflix, I’m well and truly done with that list, so I thought I’d share the box...

Dinner at The Magnum

Thursday is definitely the new Friday, right? We quite often go out on a Thursday night; it’s almost become the start of our weekend, and last week’s venue of choice was The Magnum. Occupying pride of place on the corner of Albany Street in the New Town, I had always been tempted to try out the food there, but never quite go around to it. So when we were invited along I wasn’t about to say no, and so with much excitement and our ‘hooray for Thursday’ faces on, we went along for what would turn out to be a...

Tales from the weekend #6

This weekend has been busy. The sort of busy when Sunday night arrives, you feel like you need another couple of days off just to recover. Not a second was wasted from 5.15pm on Friday night when I had a large glass of red wine in my hand to now, where I’m spending the evening catching up on Game of Thrones – oh how happy I am to have dragons in my life again. Friday night was spent with friends, catching up over a bottle of wine and a lovely dinner at the West Room, followed by another bottle of...

Date, hazelnut and cacao nib flapjacks

I always feel a little cheated with flapjacks. They should really be the healthy option, since they’re made of oats, and in my world anything with oats in it is good for you. But they’re not … far from it, in fact. Take the oats out of the equation and you’ve got syrup and butter and loads of it. Frankly, by the time you factor all of this in, you may as well have had the chocolate bar you compromised on in the first place. That is unless you use a few cheats to make your flapjacks the healthy treats...

5 of the best fitness apps

If you’re anything like me, you will have justified every last little piece of chocolate you could over the past few days. After all, if you can’t eat chocolate at Easter, when can you? To add to my chocolate splurge, Lent came to an end on Sunday, which meant my ban from eating crisps was lifted and I pretty much spent the weekend trying to make up for the six weeks I’ve gone without them. As a result, I’m now feeling in desperate need of a detox. So I got up early this morning, hit the gym, I’ve planned healthy...

Things that made me smile – March 2015

1. Huevos rancheros waffles, because savoury waffles taste just as good as the sweet ones. Scratch that, they’re better. 2. Dior and I. A truly amazing documentary film on Raf Simons and his debut collection as Creative Director at Christian Dior. It was inspiring. 3. Taking myself out to lunch. I ate sushi and sipped Prosecco all on my lonesome and it was lovely. It’s something I would like to do more often. 4. Getting started on season three of House of Cards. I didn’t think season two could be topped, but four episodes in and I have been proved...
