    Las Iguanas Birmingham Food Review

    Latin American restaurant Las Iguanas landed a top spot on Birmingham Temple Street earlier this year. The vibrant eatery boasts incredibly strong cocktails, a wide variety of flavours and a vibrant, carnival vibe. As soon as you walk through the door, it makes you feel as though you’re on holiday; it’s a fantastic atmosphere to be inside. I’ve previously visited the Las Iguanas in the Arcadian, Birmingham but I can safely say I rate this one more. I was invited to try their fresh new menu a la carte menu and the drinks that come along with it. There’s also a separate lunch, and bottomless brunch option which should really be…

    Three Church Road Edgbaston, Birmingham – Restaurant Review

    I wasn’t expecting to head to a retirement village for my latest restaurant review. But oh, what a surprise it was when we walked in through the front door. Three Church Road opened last year in the beautiful Georgian building of Audley St George’s Place in Edgbaston and prides itself on beautifully presented menus and high quality service. Although the restaurant sits within the retirement village, non-residents are more than welcome to visit for dinner, afternoon tea or special events. Straight away I’d say this is somewhere I’d love to visit again in future. I was gutted that I couldn’t make the first launch last year, but thankfully their wonderful team got…

    Kukd Review – Food Takeaway Service Online

    I’m not going to lie, I love takeaway food. If I’m having a rubbish week or feel too lazy to cook, I’ll usually suggest getting a takeaway for ease and convenience. Although we try not to make it too much of a regular thing, trust me. Usually we’ll order from one of the well known food companies, but recently I received an email from a new company called Kukd who asked if I would like to try their take away ordering service. As well as providing a collection and takeaway service, Kukd offers table booking service at selected restaurants which I think is a great idea. As they reiterate on…

    First Look At The High Field Town House

    Ok…OK I admit I might have a teeny tiny hotel obsession. I’ve had some of the most amazing opportunities over the past couple of months to review several brand new hotels in Birmingham. Starting with The Park Regis, St Paul’s Boutique Hotel and now The High Field Town House. It’s such a privilege to be able to write content like this for my blog and believe me when I say, it’s not going to stop any time soon… If you live in Birmingham, you’ll have heard about the popular gastropub The High field, Edgbaston which opened in 2014. Next door now resides the brand new (and stunningly beautiful) Town House.…

    Gloria Palace San Agustín Thalasso & Hotel

    I’m the type of girl who goes on holiday, and while I’m sitting in the cool breeze, reading books and soaking up the sun at Gloria Palace San Agustín Thalasso & Hotel, I started planning more holidays for the year. It’s actually quite ridiculous and my boyfriend says I’m fully obsessed. He’s probably right, but I’ve put it down to the fact I want to visit new places, participate in fun activities such as shark diving, eat great food, take photographs and soak up what the experience has to offer. There’s absolutely nothing wrong with that! We booked a package holiday off Lowcostholidays which I feel always has the cheapest flights and…
