Tony Macaroni Aberdeen | Is it worth trying?

I was incredibly fortunate to be invited along to the opening of Tony Macaroni in Aberdeen to try out their menu. I brought Blair along so we could have our Saturday date night before we headed out to meet friends for drinks. Tony Macaroni is an Italian restaurant that you can find in several locations over the UK but somewhere I had never actually tried until it opened in Aberdeen. I always pictured it as this chain restaurant, a bit…

Aberdeen Restaurant Week is Back!

I am trying to make more of a conscious effort to eat and drink locally in Aberdeen. For me, it was always about ease and the price of chain restaurants and bars that drew me in, because essentially it’s cheap and cheerful and you know what you are going to get. I can drive to Union Square, park quickly and be served my food even quicker. But with the ever-growing number of local Aberdeen eateries and realisation that I should…

The restaurant interior had a country pub,…

Session Beer & Gin Festival | Review

When the Sessions Beer and Gin Festival in Aberdeen was announced, I knew I wanted to get tickets and spend a day in the sun drinking all different types of gin. My sister and I decided to get tickets for the family for my dad’s birthday because he is a huge gin fanatic and thought it would be as fun outing for us as a family. The festival took place over 3 days – Friday 3rd until Sunday 5th August…

Where have I been? | Mid year update

Sometimes life gets crazy and that’s exactly how the last few months have felt. I’ve had to take a step back from blogging and YouTube, much to my disappointment, due to other commitments i.e. a full time job, university coursework, holidays, oh and renovating our first house! Work – Since September last year, I have been working at CALA Homes as a Marketing Assistant for a year’s placement during my 3rd year at university. This has been a brilliant opportunity to…

CALA at Grandhome Interiors Event

Having a father that works in the homebuilder  industry and a mother with a keen interest in interior design, I’ve been brought up with a fascination of the housing industry and even wanted to be an interior designer for several years when I was younger. And now with working at a homebuilder myself and with my new home  to decorate, my interest in this field has blossomed even more. So when my work decided to throw an Interiors event, I…
