Life | Things I’ve Loved This Week #5

Things I've Loved this week 08.05.16

1 | Drinking one of my five-a-day
I was kindly sent a bundle of Juicy Fuel colas to try, and absolutely fell in love with their Cherry Cola. Really cherry-ish in flavour, it’s so tasty AND counts as one of your five a day. I only had two cans of this and drank them pretty sharpish, but I’m definitely stocking up on plenty more. And I imagine they’ll be a great addition to my summertime cocktail making adventures too.

2 | Springtime in London
After spending a rainy and quite cold weekend in Belgium, it was awesome to see the sun pop it’s hat on and come out to say hello this week. My winter coat has been firmly placed in the corner, and leather jacket weather is totally underway. Hooray!

3 | Bank Holiday Meze-Day
Changing our mind on a Bank Holiday roast dinner at the last minute, we decided to spend Monday lunchtime checking out Olive in Leytonstone – a restaurant I walk past on the way to the station every day. I’m a big fan of Mediterranean food, and Olive’s was REALLY GOOD. We had a starter meze and main meze, and although I felt they were a bit pricey for the amount you got, I really enjoyed the meal.

4 | Blogging for Tastecard
Back in April, an email winged its way into my inbox from the team at Tastecard. After reading my post about tapas and sangria at Salvador & Amanda, they wanted me to do some blogging for their site. As a big advocate of Tastecard and a regular user, it made perfect sense to say yes. So they sent me down to Fire and Stone to check out their new menu – you can read all about it here! (spoiler alert: IT WAS GOOD)

5 | Actually having a phone case
Alright. I actually bought this when I was out in the US, but I just adore this CaseYard beauty that’s currently wrapped around my Samsung. I’m notoriously bad at actually keeping cases on my phone, but when it’s THIS cute? It stays.

6 | Burritos & Beer
On Wednesday evening before our Goosebumps experience (see below!), Conor and I grabbed some burritos from Mi Casa in Waterloo and soaked up the sun on the South Bank. The beer wasn’t my favourite, but the burritos were awesome – plenty of tasty filling, generous guac and soft, floury tortillas.

7 | Goosebumps Alive
I grew up with the Goosebumps books and TV show being a huge part of my childhood, so when they announced a live, immersive Goosebumps experience for adults I was so totally there. We snapped up some tickets and headed to The Vaults by Waterloo to see some of my favourite stories bought to live. And some of it was pretty darn scary. The cast were captivating in their performances, and I was incredibly impressed at the detail and innovative thinking that had gone into the sets. I jumped. I laughed. I even screamed. And had the best evening ever. Goosebumps Alive runs until early June, with tickets from £32 – basically, if you do one thing in London in May, do this.

8 | Pizza Union
On Friday night I met up with some of my top blogger girls for an evening of fun – obviously, we started it off with food. Pizza Union is my actual favourite pizza place in London and I talk about it A LOT. Best pizza, every time. I also tried out their dessert dough ring with Nutella and mascarpone cheese and DOUGH. MY. GOD. Best dessert ever. Even if I did feel like the Pilsbury Dough Girl afterwards…Pizza Union, you forever have a slice of my heart.

9 | ClueQuest
The purpose of us all coming together (other than it being Friday and not needing an excuse to see such wonderful faces) was to take part in ClueQuest, a live escape game. Which I won’t say much about now, as there’s a full post coming very soon – stay tuned to find out whether we completed the challenge (and whether we were still friends afterwards…)
