Christmas Stocking Fillers

Christmas is fast approaching and I can’t contain my excitement! I’d like to say that I love Christmas but I find Christmas day itself quite dull. I much prefer the prep and hustle and bustle beforehand. The shopping for presents, finding the perfect gifts and then getting to wrap them up all beautifully ready to pop under the tree. Not everybody finds Christmas shopping as fun and easy as I do, so today I thought I’d help you out with some little gift ideas for my favourite part of Christmas. Stocking fillers! I’m not sure what it is about stocking fillers…

Five Reasons Why I’m Excited About The Gilmore Girl Revival [AD]

If you follow me at all on Twitter you’ll have noticed I’ve not talked pretty much non-stop about Gilmore Girls, and my unadulterated love for Jess Mariano. Growing up this was my all time favourite Tv programme to watch during the summer holidays. I even introduced my Grandma to it, although I don’t know if she loved it quite as much as I did, she happily put up with me constantly putting it on her TV for us to watch together. You can probably guess I’m pretty excited for season 8 airing on Netflix next month. In preparation of the new…

American Afternoon Tea at the Karbon Grill Sunderland.

Last week I was invited along to the Hilton Garden Inn in Sunderland, situated at the Hilton Garden Inn. The hotels very own Karbon Grill restaurant has recently launched an American style Afternoon Tea. So I hopped on the metro after work and headed on over to the Stadium of Light to try it out. You’re probably wondering how an American style Afternoon Tea differs from a classic Afternoon Tea and it’s as simple as instead of cucumber sandwiches and fruit scones its filled with American themed sweets and treats. Filled with mini sliders, calzones, spicy buffalo wings and cheesy…
