I don’t actually go to many concerts. Like anyone I love music but I’m not too fussed about seeing many people live (though y’know, Ed Sheeran if you fancy throwing some tickets my way…). What I do try to do is see my favourite comedians when they go on tour. I bloody love spending a couple of hours in a room full of laughing people, you know that proper deep belly laughs where you even cry a little. Yeah. That. So back in 2015 when Matt and I discovered one of our favourite comedians Russell Howard was going on tour in 2017 (yep, you have to book that far in advance!), we knew we had to book tickets. March 2017 was our date and the Royal Albert Hall was our venue of choice.
Flash forward two years and as a Christmas present, Matt’s parents kindly supplied us with a hotel stay for the night of the show so we could make a weekend of our trip to London. I love London but rarely get to enjoy it for longer than a day so for the last few weeks I’d plotted where I wanted to go and what I wanted to buy. To conclude this rather large introduction, this week’s post is a photo diary all about our weekend in London!
I’m fairly new to the coffee world. It was only last year when I was in London for work that my boss asked me what I wanted to drink from a coffee shop that I realised that I just couldn’t keep ordering a diet coke forever. Because let’s be honest, a coffee is a lot more sophisticated. So from that day, myself and lattes became well acquainted. So when Greggs got in touch to ask if I wanted to take part in their coffee taste test challenge to celebrate Fairtrade Fortnight, I jumped at the chance! The concept was simple: taste coffee from four separate stores and rate them using a scale of 1-5 with 1 being good and 5 being amazing. I decided to choose the same drink at all four places so it was a fait test. Here’s how I got on:
Pret A Manger
When: Saturday 4th, London
How much: £2.25
As a lover of all things unicorn, I decided my next bakes would be inspired by the mythical creatures. So here we have my Psychedelic Unicorn Bark which I think is a great gift for friends and family when wrapped up in cellophane or simply for snaffling when you’re feeling peckish. I haven’t baked shortbread for a long time so thought I’d give the classic recipe a try but with my own personal twist – dipped in chocolate and merrily sprinkled with
joy sweetness. These are incredibly easy recipes and it’s likely you already have a lot of the ingredients in your house already. Now let’s get baking!
