I know what you’re thinking, another fitness related post about resolutions and how this is the year it’s all going to change. I said that for three years before things finally started to change again. Following a break-up, moving back to the UK, getting a new job, new flat – things haven’t been at the peak of comfort zones for me and in those times, I. EAT. Like the cliche that I was, the unstable lifestyle I was living led me to find solace at the bottom of an Indian takeaway container washed down with a little Ben and Jerry’s for good measure.
If you’re looking for a short break that has it all; sun, sea, sand and city life, Nice will do nothing but continuously surprise you with it’s French splendour and friendly people. My first experience of France outside of Paris and I was oh so impressed. We were in town late September and it was too hot to handle so be prepared for hot weather but check ahead.
We were only there for a couple of nights but made the most of the gastro experience the city had to offer. I won’t give a run down of every place we ate but have highlighted the best of the bunch below!
A wise person once told me that the best way to understand and appreciate wine is to drink, a lot. Bursting with excitement at the challenge 2018 fast became the year of drinking wine in abundance. I’ve learned a lot this year from four main sources.
- This wine book that my best friend Roop purchased for me last year for Christmas – Wine Folly.
- Janet – My boyfriend’s mum – I’ve never met anyone who can better navigate the top shelves of Sainsbury’s 25% off 6 bottles
- Guillaume – our epic wine tour guide in Chateauneuf-du-Pape who taught me all the wanky but logically things you need to know about tasting a wine for the first time
- Vivino app – mainly to help me understand what notes and flavours are in the bottles I’m drinking. WARNING – don’t scan in a restaurant. It hurts to know you’ve just paid £50 for a £8 bottle of wine…
‘Is Sunday Riley worth the hype’, you ask? I’ve asked myself the same question for a few months now but after hearing nothing but great things from multiple sources I was excited to be giving it a go myself. After trying three products from the range I’ve concluded that Sunday Riley skincare is an alien-like masterpiece of a portfolio from another world. With unusual formulas that range in texture, colour and scents, your skincare routine will truly become somewhat of an extra-terrestrial experience.
