Who dat? Oh it’s you! I’ve needed to put a post up about this place for a while really, but procrastination is a hobby of mine so there we go and here we are. I live in Bow and regularly visit Hiland Cafe, down the road from me. It’s probably the place I go to the most for brunch actually and that’s why I need to recommend it to you all.
Oh my gosh! What do we have here? A bloomin Autumnal treat, that’s what we have! Rocket Originals have knocked it out of the park, producing a knitwear dream twinset inspired by another vintage pattern and to be honest it looks exactly like the original advert below! I’m featuring the rust version because I feel like a pumpkin spice Autumnal dream wearing these colours!
Oooh… chocolate… TICK… golden skin… TICK… this sounds pretty good, right? I was approached to review this product, completely impartially (as always) and I must note that this is not a paid review.
I thought this would be a good product to review as even at the age of 31 my skin still thinks I am a vibrant teen and I do suffer from skin problems (mainly chin based). Boo and hiss. I’ve tried countless antibiotics, ointments, tablets, creams, contraceptives blahblahblah for years to try and calm it down but not much works (well, one contraceptive did help a bit but it made me go a bit nutso with moods so I stopped that as one doesn’t like being angry 98% of the time) so I thought perhaps this chocco will make a difference. Plus, I am not going to turn down eating a little choccy bar every day for 3 weeks especially if it has the potential for skin benefits!
Hello! Today I want to tell you about a lunch I’ve become rather fond of which takes the form of a Protein Box from Pret. This isn’t sponsored and hasn’t been requested by a PR company, it’s just me sharing the love for something I quite like.
I eat a lot, and a lot of that is food which (combined with no exercise) means my clothes are slowly feeling tighter… my poor self control means I can’t cut delicious food out totally but I am trying to reduce my carb intake for lunches. So here we are with this box which seemed like a good option to me and, as a classic millennial, I’m a right sucker for an avo. However despite these lures I am also a bit of a stinge, so was initially put off by the £4.99 price tag.
Today I’m reviewing the Geva dress by one of my favourite brands, Violets In May. They are self described as making figure-loving vintage inspired threads for pin up dolls, rockabilly bad girls and mid-century mamas! I own a lot of Violets in May pieces so you’ll see this name cropping up on FMPH more and more, as a brand I am pleased to endorse.
Here I am. Wallowing. It’s a joyful wallow because a couple of weekends ago was the Rockabilly Rave 2018 and oh my dear lord christ baby Jesus, Zeus and Osiris I had such an amazing time! You may recall me blogging about the 2017 event (read it HERE) and this year was somehow even better! Say whaaaaaaat!
Welcome to Wednesday, dear friends! Halfway through the week, we can make it! We’re also at the end of June and I can hear you wondering what I’ve done with my month so far..well.. a couple of weeks back I ate at Fish Market and had a catch up with one of my best friends Lianne. We love a bargain and so booked for the £16.50 set menu which covered 2 courses. We both wanted to eat relatively healthily and on a budget so this seemed ideal and the restaurant isn’t far from Liverpool Street – we both work pretty close by.

Hello forkers! Today I have a review of a non edible item for you. A water bottle! Hooray! “But Stef, what type of water bottle are you going to tell me about?” I hear you think… well.. this one is the ion8 leak-proof sports water bottle…. I know, right?!
Where am I?! Naples. Ah, phew. That’s ok then. So it’s my last day in the city and I want to get some traditional Naples grub.. where should I go? Well located off a side road from the Toledo I found Trattoria Nanni. It was pretty unassuming and we weren’t even sure if it was open but we popped through the door and found some staff happy to greet and seat us.
