An Evening at El Nido

Just over a week ago, I was lucky enough to have been invited along to the launch of El Nido Latin Kitchen – the new pop-up at No28 in Newcastle.

The quirky bar, which resides just above the Grainger Market, have teamed up with Kaltur, a Spanish restaurant and supplier, to create the pop-up kitchen and I was very excited to tuck into some plates from the menu!

We were greeted with a glass of complimentary fizz, then made ourselves comfortable in a cosy area of the bar with the rest of the North East bloggers and social media influencers who had been invited along to enjoy the evening.

A Glimpse at PizzaStorm’s New Menu

It’s no secret that PizzaStorm is one of my favourite places to grab food in the North East, so when they invited me along to sample some bits from their menu – I was well up for it!

Usually when I visit the restaurant I like to pick my own toppings and create my own pizza, but PizzaStorm have some new additions to their Signature Range, so this time I was looking forward to trying one of those.

The Rabbit Hole – Durham

A new hidden gem has opened its doors in Durham, and it’s nothing like anywhere you’ve been before.

Located on Hallgarth Street, The Rabbit Hole may look like a ramshackle antique shop but once you make your way through its speakeasy style side door, just off Mavin Street, you’re transported back to a bygone era of decadence and indulgence.

Riverdale ‘Hot Dads’ Appreciation Post

With the return of Riverdale this week *cue screaming* it felt right to do a post about it for the blog – it’s one of my favourite tv shows! The cast is amazing, the storyline has more twists and turns than a rollercoaster and let’s not forget…THE HEARTTHROBS.

We talk about the younger lads of the show a lot. Jughead is mysterious and sexy, Kevin has a gorgeous face, Reggie is a beefcake and…do I even need to say anything about Archie?

Life Goals Workshop With GiffGaff Gameplan!

You know what we don’t talk about enough? Money.

I personally find it a tough subject to talk about. I’ve ALWAYS been bad with my money! I’ve never really been good at saving, I’m terrible at impulse buying, and as a freelancer it can be a worry when the next wage is coming.

I use money as a way to make me feel better, buying myself a new record or treating myself to a trip away when I’m feeling down, however it’s only recently that I realised – money is a part of why I feel down in the first place. It’s one of the biggest triggers of my anxiety.

Recently I was invited along to the giffgaff gameplan life goals workshop at the Hilton Newcastle Gateshead, and I jumped at the chance. If there’s one thing I need, it’s tips on how to get my finances in order!
