Top Five Things to do in Cardiff

Hey All

As we live in Cardiff I thought it was time to share the top things to do, I find when you live in a city you don't always appreciate the things around you so this is a great tick list of things to do if you're visiting or a resident!

The Mulberry Bar at the Celtic Manor Resort


Have you heard about the fabulous new bar in the Celtic Manor?

The new Mulberry Bar opened recently and we were invited to go and check it out. Having visited Celtic Manor previously for afternoon tea and spa weekends we couldn't wait to see the new bar and see what it had to offer.

Fun Ways to Stay Motivated on your Fitness Journey


So it's coming to the end of February and if you're anything like me you are probably wondering what on earth you can do to keep your motivation going!

You've made it through January and got passed the part where a lot of people normally give up. So what can you do to make sure you don't lose your focus??

Recently I've been looking into new ways to keep myself on track, so I've been taking part in lots of new activities in Cardiff to make sure I don't get too comfortable on the sofa too often.

New Vegan Cafe: Blanche Bakery Cardiff


Hey all!

Friday evening we were invited to a preview of the new vegan cafe opening in Cardiff. If you're long term readers you'll know we've both been mostly vegetarian this year, and have been enjoying trying new veggie and vegan recipes. So we were particularly excited to hear about a new cafe opening and couldn't resist the invite to see Blanche Bakery before it opened.

The Potted Pig


Have you heard of The Potted Pig in Cardiff??

It has long been a restaurant on our lists as we had heard the food was amazing. M had been here for a family meal before turning veggie and the meat was amazing, but L hadn't managed to make it there yet. After hearing they were going to start opening on Monday evenings as well as the rest of the week we knew it was time we went together and luckily for us they invited us to try out their menu.

Laguna Health Spa - ESPA Optimal Skin Profacial Treatment



Hey all!

I'm sure you've seen M's post on her amazing ESPA Body Wrap so I'd like to share with you my thoughts on the ESPA Optimal Skin Profacial Treatment that I had when I visited the Laguna Health Club.

We both love a good spa treatment and knowing the new treatments at Laguna used cruelty free products from ESPA we were looking forward to visiting again.

Cameo Club Cardiff


I'm sure you all know by now how much we love food, we are always trying out new restaurants, bars and street food events and never get bored of it! 

There are so many great places to try in Cardiff so there's always something new to test out, and recently me and my family went to Cameo on Wellfield road in Cardiff for a celebration and it was a great chance to try out their menu.

Laguna Health and Spa - Espa Body Wrap Review

Hey All

Laguna Health and Spa have recently switched salon brands to Espa and as it's cruelty free I was pretty excited to here this! We were lucky enough to be offered to try out some of the treatments so couldn't wait to test them out.

Laguna Health and Spa is located in the Park Plaza Hotel in Cardiff and has a beautiful swimming pool, sauna and jacuzzi, as well as a great gym (which used to be my gym and I really miss those classes!)

Kat Von D arrives in Cardiff


Hey all!

If you're a fellow Cardiffian and a make up fan you will have been pleased to find out that Kat Von D has FINALLY arrived in our Debenhams store. We are both fans of Kat Von D and although M has the Shade and Light palette (review here) neither of us have tried any of her other well known products because we needed to be colour matched. We've also mentioned over the last few months how both of us are now only purchasing cruelty free make up, and Kat Von D has one of the best ranges of products that aren't tested on animals.

So when we heard about their blogger event we HAD to go!

Best Bottomless Prosecco Brunch in Cardiff

Hey All

Who doesn't love Prosecco these days and unlimited Prosecco at that. Grey's based in the Hilton Cardiff offer a great two course lunch and bottomless Prosecco for the great price of £25!

I've actually been here twice now and I'm planning the third, I've always gone on a Sunday and it's lovely and quiet and the staff are always attentive.

Zero Degrees Beer Tasting and Food


Hi all!

Recently we were both invited to Zero Degrees in Cardiff for an evening of beer tasting and food, we've both been before on random occasions for the odd drink but not for a meal and drinks so this was a great opportunity and we were really looking forward to it.

Cardiff Food Round Up


Hi all!

So the last few weeks I've finally got over the car accident and I can finally eat properly again, HOORAY! Life has been rather boring having to eat soft food for months on end due to damaging the muscles in my face/jaw and although I've thrown myself into finding some great vegan and vegetarian options I have missed the variety.

In celebration I have rearranged outings seeing friends, colleagues, family etc etc that I haven't been able to make it to for celebration and catching up. I should maybe be embarrassed that I've eaten out so much in the last few weeks but I'M TOO HAPPY TO CARE!

The Celtic Manor Resort Summer Berry Afternoon Tea


Hey all!

Happy National Afternoon Tea Week! I mean, this week is only second best to Christmas in my opinion. A week dedicated to afternoon tea?? How British and how delightful!

We were super lucky and were invited back to the Celtic Manor Resort to try their new Summer Berry afternoon tea - we were obviously never going to say no but especially not when the treats looked this beautiful!

The Brass Beetle


We were super lucky recently and were invited to the opening of the Brass Beetle, this is a new restaurant on Whitchurch Road in Cardiff and I think it fills a gap in the market.

Good morning all!

Isn't the weather glorious??? We've been so lucky this week with some real sunshine, I hope it's going to stick around.

On Tuesday we were invited to try out the new menu at Porro on Wellfield Road in Cardiff. We've previously been to their other branch in Llandaff for a different blogger event but never been to this restaurant, so we couldn't wait.

Falafel Kitchen - Cardiff


Hey all!

We've mentioned a few times recently that we've both gone vegetarian - for different reasons but we both enjoy food and cooking so much that we've fully embraced it and have been trying new recipes as well as new eateries.

The next on our list was Falafel Kitchen, found on Crwys Road in Cardiff.
