Tackling Public Eating Anxiety: Adulis – Eritrean Restaurant (Review)

Making friends and being ‘cool’ in social situations has never really been my specialism. Instead I have often surrounded myself with a small group of people, hidden alone in a corner or kept myself on social media. Over the years I have built up a really good group of online friends. Some of them are […]

Amira Rice

That’s right guys you read the title right I said rice. And no I’m not in on some secret beauty, fashion or lifestyle trick involving rice that you’ve never heard of I do mean the stuff you can eat. A few weeks ago during National Curry Week Amira liked one of my posts on Instagram […]

When At Wembley

Vapianos
