Last month I was lucky enough to find an email in my inbox inviting me along to River Bar in Washington to try their new menu. I’m always looking for new places to eat around the North East and having never been before, I jumped at the chance.
If you’ve visited the HWKRMRKT at By The River Brew Co before then you’ll know it’s the ultimate hangout spot! I mean, is there anything better than spending the afternoon or evening catching up with friends whilst working your way around various vendors trying all different types of food? I think not!
Earlier this month Adam and I were invited along to a VIP evening at Master Debonair, the independent menswear retailer in East Boldon. The invite came through at the perfect time as we’d literally JUST been looking at suits that day ready for a wedding Adam is attending this summer – so we couldn’t wait to get there and have a look around!
They say diamonds are a girls best friend but you know what I love? Pearls!
Don’t get me wrong, if you want to buy me diamonds I’m absolutely fine with that (wink, wink) but I’ve always been drawn to pearls. I think a lot of it has to do with the fact that I’m a June baby and they’re one of our birthstones! I got a beautiful pearl ring for my 21st birthday and it’s nearly always on my finger.
A couple of weeks ago I was invited along to the VIP launch of the new 1189 Bar & Kitchen at the beautiful Walworth Castle Hotel, just outside of Darlington.
The restaurant has opened it’s doors following a £50,000 refurbishment and I was so excited to head along with Adam and see what the menu had to offer!
