Last Minute Special Christmas Gifts for Food Lovers

Cheese Making Kit

Christmas Gifts for Food Lovers: There are so many guides out there with recommendations of what to buy for a food lover.  Are they perhaps a little misplaced?  Maybe – although the error, I think is not recognising that there’s no such thing as ‘perfect taste’.  I believe taste is something personal and have no […]

ASK Italian review and #Giveaway #MakeItSpecial

Pizza at Ask Pizza

Christmas Shopping Break #Giveaway and Pizza: It’s that time of year when everything seems to slip.  Deadlines come and go, schedules end up crumpled in the bin and even basic things like writing Christmas cards get missed.  I like meeting up with my God Daughter and always intend to see more of her.  But, work […]

Crockers Folly

Crocker’s Folly Guest Feature by Natalie York: From the outside Crocker’s Folly is just an unobtrusive little pub near Lords Cricket ground.

Entrance to Walworth Garden Farm

My New Smartphone – the Asus Zenfone 5 LTE  : I’ve been using a Samsung S5 for the last 6 months or so, an upgrade from my old S3, so I am an android smartphone lover and one who prefers the large, slim Samsung to chunkier models.  So I was keen to try out the […]

Iberica and Action Against Hunger Tapas Challenge: I’m a big fan of Iberica, the Spanish tapas restaurant.  I’ve been lucky enough to visit Iberica Farringdon for lunch and enjoyed some real treats – both classic and updated tapas dishes, all cooked impeccably. I do enjoy making tapas at home too.  While you might think making […]

John Lewis Hamper

John Lewis Hampers – The Ultimate Christmas Solution: While the house move may have happened a few weeks ago now, I am still in melt-down, or so it seems.  And, a weekly pilgrimage to Peter Jones, part of the John Lewis group, has become a feature of my life. I’ve taken up residence in the […]

Lomography Camera #Giveaway

La Sardina Guvnor

Win a kitsch analogue camera from Lomography: My father was a very keen photographer.  He used to shoot in black and white on 35mm film and then he’d develop his own photos in a room up in the attic where we were not supposed to go.  Full of bottles, jars, trays and strange lights, with […]
