Giggling Squid Christmas Menu 2017

It’s that time of year again, time to sample Brighton’s festive food offerings, starting with a favourite restaurant of mine, Giggling Squid. I love the idea of Thai Food for Christmas as it’s just something different – certainly not a whiff of turkey and stuffing here! Their Christmas Menu came out on 13th November so we headed down to the Hove restaurant to give it a whirl. The Christmas Menu is at both lunch and evening times and is a three-course set menu priced at £20.95 at lunchtime or £29.95 in the evening, this also comes with a glass of…

The Shop Small Guide – Brighton

Sponsored post in association with American Express® Oh beautiful Brighton! A city that I have lived in since I was just 18 years old and although I moved away a couple of times, it just kept drawing me back. There is no place quite like it. One of the most colourful, diverse and vibrant cities in the UK – there is always something new to surprise me around every corner.

I soon learned that if I wore my old jewellery that I had before Violet, she would pull it, break it and try and put totally unsafe bits in her mouth, so I ended up not wearing any at…

A Breath of Fresh Air with #MilletsDogs

Sometimes, life can just get too much. In this last couple of weeks I’ve been frazzled to my core. Starting with the bad news of a close family member passing on my birthday to the boiler breaking, a burst pipe and house full of illness, it’s been a tough one to say the least. Things have often felt totally overwhelming. Sometimes when life gets a bit tough you just have to take a step back and get some space.  One of my favourite ways to do that is to go for a dog walk, come rain or shine. I’m so…

WIN: Nest Protect Alarm worth £109

Ok, this is a slightly different post from me today. It’s not everyday that I write about the risk of carbon monoxide in the home (thank goodness, not sure how many of you would be here if I did 🙂 ) but it’s actually a really important thing to talk about so please stick with me. We have recently fitted alarms throughout our home and had our chimney swept in preparation for winter and it’s made me realise how much more vigilant I am about testing smoke/carbon monoxide alarms, now we have Violet with us. Knowing it’s a silent killer…
