Pasta making with Tutti A Tavola 

Ciao! Today, we make-a some-a past-a with Silvana from Tutti-a-Tavola. And I promise I won’t type in that poor Italian/English stereotypical phonetic hybrid any more. Promise.

Based in West London, Silvana runs pasta making classes every week, rotating the type of pasta each month to keep you on your toes. Interesting! She covers both the glutenny and gluten-free pastas from scratch: Tuesday and Saturday evenings for the glutenny amongst us and gluten-free on Sunday lunchtime. We opted for the gluten ‘standard’ pasta, and the flavour of the month was Tricolore Garganelli! Huzzayy! Colourful pasta fun!

Skinny Coffee by The Skinny Caffe

Skinny Coffee is a 30 Day Program to help weight loss with only one cup of this coffee a day, drunk 15 minutes before you have your breakfast. With a slogan of “Make Coffee, Not Excuses” I thought hey, why not? Now I’m not saying I am overweight so please no hate there, it’s just over the last 6 months my clothes seem to be smaller – very selfish of them…. so I thought if I can start wearing them comfortably again then that would be a great feeling for me. No excuses!

The Apprentice – Ross Fretten Watch: 1/11/2017

Following up from my pre-Apprentice excitement post about long time pal of mine and now Apprentice candidate, Ross Fretten, I’ve decided I’m simply still too excited to not write more about his Apprentice journey. Therefore, I’ve created this! ROSS WATCH. I’ll be providing a few notes and snaps of each episode (from my TV, I am a professional) as it goes just to sate my need to type.

Of course, for updates from the man himself, follow his Twitter and Facebook page – tags at the end of this post. I’m not going to write out the whole episodes but there will be some *spoilers*.

Upcoming: Magic Roundabout Winter Launch

The oh so East London drinking and dining den Magic Roundabout, which resides in the middle of Old Street roundabout is coming back for Winter!

They’ve tented it, heated it, and revamped it with a new old school theme. The new venue will take you back through the decades, with areas decked out in homage to the 60s, 70s, 80s and (our personal favourite) the 90s.  The new themed areas include a Woodstock with some serious flower power and tribute to the late, great (in some opinions) Hugh Heffner with a super sexy 1970s Playboy lounge, complete with sheepskins and log fire. The Main Bar will be an all out 80s disco with futuristic art and palm trees and finally, the VIP Area will take you right back to the early 90s; oh the patterns, oh the Fresh Prince colours! Hopefully Big Willy himself will make an appearance… (ok, maybe not but let a girl dream!)

The Apprentice 2017 – Ross Fretten

Hello all! A slightly strange post from me today as although I mentioned the female casting made in Doctor Who, I’m not looking to cover TV in a big way on here. But then it is my blog so I can make special exceptions! And here is one of them…this year’s season of The Apprentice (UK).

Why? Why is this special and being posted about? Well, a long time friend of mine, Ross Fretten, is a candidate so I will be definitely tuning in every Wednesday and rooting for him!

Ted’s Grooming Room – The Tommy ‘n’ Turkish

Gents (or ladies who have beard-abilities), here is a post just for you! We visited Ted’s Grooming Room at their Soho location on Berwick street to try out the Tommy ‘n’ Turkish treatment and report back for your benefit. Okay, okay, we got something out of the shave too but relaxing in the name of blogging…. sheesh, tough work!
What does this Tommy ‘n’ Turkish consist of? It’s a traditional cut-throat shave, hair wash and style, and ear flaming as required which all costs £28 and about 30 minutes of your time.
