The Ludoquist, Croydon

Very cheesy pizza in Croydon

I was really excited about The Ludoquist opening in Croydon. I had seen about it several months before, when they launched their Kickstarter, and was looking forward to them opening up and us having a board game cafe much closer than the one in Bromley. At present it seems to be taking a more family-friendly […]

Dum Dum, Boxpark Croydon

Nutella cronuts with sugar, chocolate and hazelnut topping

A little while ago I was sitting in Croydon’s Boxpark, a venue that has been sitting next to East Croydon station for just over a year now, and decided that enough was enough. For so long I have been holding off from trying out anything from Dum Dum because do I really need donuts and can they actually […]

The Day I Went To Crystal Palace Beer Festival

Crystal Palace Beer Festival - the pitch with the big screen for the FA Cup with sun beaming down onto it. 2017.

When Crystal Palace Beer Festival tickets went on sale there was a real chance that we would end up going along and watching the FA Cup with a sombre attitude as Palace found themselves relegated to the Championship. Luckily between purchasing the tickets and the day coming around the season was just about saved and […]

Earlybird Snacks Box

You might not have heard about Earlybird Snacks as they are a lot less known and have less promotion than companies like Graze. But the difference about Earlybird, other than that you get a fun flavoured tea bag as well as a variety of snacks, but is that it is a lot more health conscious […]

Frankenstein by Mary Shelley

So many people seem to have read Frankenstein, or at least sections of it, during their time at school. I never watched a film version of it either, to my knowledge, so my thoughts on it were completely skewed. It somehow managed to pass me by and I only ever knew of it because of […]

Partner does my makeup

What better way to spend the weekend than being a bit silly and letting your partner at your face with some makeup? I always have Youtube videos on that are tutorials or tags such as X does my makeup and one day he said he wanted to give it a try. With a lack of […]

A Fundraising Night: The Hilton Croydon (Review)

In London it is a big time for politics. We finally wave goodbye to Boris and see a new person take the lead in city hall. As the days to the May election get closer parties are stepping up their campaigns and ways to raise extra funds. Now I am not going to bang on […]

New Local Shops

I’ve only moved a ten minute walk from the old flat but it’s like moving to a completely different area. Of course that’s the thing with London and you can casually walk around a corner and transported somewhere new. But we never really had a reason to walk down this far or to go along […]

Carex Handwash

So these fun edition handwashes by Carex have been around for a while now but I love them for different seasons. We just finished off the bubblegum one and that was so sweet that it really fitted in for the Halloween and autumnal season. It being bright blue sort of put me off to begin […]

Shower Scents

After posting yesterday about my current shampoo and conditioner fix I thought I would take a closer lool at a couple of Imperial Leather‘s new shower gels and creams. Having a shower or a bath is a great way for me to relax my mind, think things through and plan for the next day or […]
