Thirty Before Thirty!

I turned 29 at the beginning of this month and quite literally dived into the final year of my twenties at my birthday party by tripping over in killer platform boots and concussing myself on the patio door. It’s good to see that even though I’m getting older, I’m still an absolute divvy.

Anyway, since then I’ve been doing a lot of thinking about the fact that I’m even closer to turning the big three-zero. It feels like such a milestone – and feels like I’m about to become a REAL adult! I’ve already got so much to look forward to in the final year of my twenties (you know, like getting married!!!), but I’ve decided to do a little bucket list as well to keep me busy.

MEW: A Night At The Wresting (AD)

If you’ve followed my blog or Instagram for a while, you’ll probably know that I knew absolutely NOTHING about wrestling up until a few years ago when I met Adam. He was into wrestling so obviously, trying to be a good girlfriend, I showed an interest. Little did I know it would end up being something I love!

I’ve been to my fair share of shows over the past few years now, both WWE and independent promotions, so when Main Event Wrestling (MEW) in Newcastle invited me along to their latest show I jumped at the chance.

GORILLA BAR AND BOWLING (AD)

When I was a teen my Friday nights consisted of heading down to the Dunes in Shields with the girls and spending hours playing game after game of bowling and drinking one two many J20’s! Fast forward 10+ years and bowling is still one of my favourite activities to do whether it’s with a big group of friends or for a date night. That’s why I was over the moon to be invited down to Newcastle’s brand new bowling spot, Gorilla!

DOPPIO MALTO – METROCENTRE (AD)

I took a little trip to Italy earlier this week when I headed along to the Metrocentre to visit the latest addition to their food quarter – Doppio Malto!

Known for its motto ‘un posto felice’ – a happy place – Doppio Malto offers a beautiful, vibrant setting with vivid coloured walls filled with art, cosy botanical corners and bright lights all around. A smile graced my face the moment I arrived, and I can tell you now it stayed there til I left.

I was invited along for an exclusive evening of beer tasting and menu sampling and let me tell you, I was not prepared for what went down…

The Hustle – Newcastle (AD)

I think you’ll be seeing plenty of food posts on the blog this year, so let’s start it off with a visit to one of Newcastle’s newest spots – The Hustle!

Taking up residence in the old Tiger Tiger/Eden site at the heart of the city centre, the building has certainly had quite the glow up since I was last there. It has been transformed into a stunning bar, grill and disco lounge with an extensive drinks menu and an excellent New York style tapas menu.
