FoodPark Finds: Wandering Yak

We work near to the Science Park, so when the FoodPark comes along on Thursdays, we sometimes take the time out to visit. It’s usually the first Thursday after payday, or when the weather is nice, as it’s a 20 min walk to get there. But when we do go, it’s always amazing.

Despite there being so many options to choose from, and this may be a controversial thing to say, but I have found my favourite. Many people ask me what my favourite meal in Cambridge is, and it would be the same as well: The Wandering Yak. [Read more…]

Your Weekend Sorted

The Mill Cambridge

Instead of working your way through the Christmas movies on Netflix, here’s what you could be doing this weekend…

Play

Animal Crossing App

If you ARE going to watch crappy things on Netflix, at least keep your thumbs busy. I’ve been really enjoying the Animal Crossing Pocket Camp app. It’s not as exciting as the actual game on handheld Nintendo consoles, but it’s a great way to pass some time. You set up a nice little tent area, collect things, and give things to the animals who live there.

I miss having the space to really decorate the tent as I did with Animal Crossing New Leaf, but it’s still fun. If you’re playing too, let me know your friend code!

Drink

I had the hot chocolate Jack’s Gelato last week and it was AMAZING! There are a couple of different flavours to choose from, and we had the orange one. The best hot chocolate in Cambridge?? I think so.

Visit

On Sunday Thirsty have an amazing food market. The list of sellers there looks so exciting! Great for last minute Christmas shopping?

It’s not at the weekend but Charlie’s Pizza is having a Home Alone and pizza night and I know I want to be there. All the deets can be found here.

I loved this post from Alice about selfies. I am a selfie fan myself, I don’t think there’s anything wrong with them at all.

Not really feeling Christmas yet? Feel more Grinch than Elf? Here are some tips on how to improve your mood this Christmas.

Is blogging dying? It’s certainly changing, that’s for sure. Jasmin Charlotte has some fab predictions.

I’ve not been a freelancer, but I can understand the pain of Bev. I think her solution is a really lovely idea!

Have a great weekend!

Caravan London

Caravan London

You may remember a while back I went to Caravan at Kings Cross for some amazing brunch with my girl Katie. Here’s the link just in case. I had the chance to visit another one of the Caravan family back in September, after a group of us had done an escape room for a hen do. We were exhausted and starving.

Caravan Bankside is gorgeous, the kind of place nice couples might go to on a date. Though it is casual, you’ll want to be dressed to impress (just like at the Kings Cross branch). I wasn’t feeling any of the large plates so chose two smaller and a snack.

This is the chargrilled hispi cabbage with miso, shiso and Stilton. Ho-ly cow this was good. Probably the best thing I’ve eaten in 2017 (how often have I said this…must look into it). It’s probably meant to be shared but there was no way I was sharing this. It was so juicy, umami and sticky. Sadly the shiso flavour wasn’t coming through as I’d hoped, but the combination of flavours was just perfect.

Next we have the Chapel and Swan smoked salmon with furikake. I was saying to a Japanese friend how furikake is used more and known more by regular people these days, and how his (large Japanese food) company should start selling it here. The salmon was amazing, not overly smoked. Perfect.

Caravan London

Lastly I had the potato bread with lime butter. My dad makes potato bread in his breadoven when we’re all home over Christmas. Dad’s is still the best of course, but this was a very close second. I very much like lime, it’s one of my favourite flavours (alongside shiso), so the butter was also very relevant to my interests.

It was a smashing meal, great for a treat. I would absolutely go and eat that cabbage again.

How to Use LinkedIn for Marketing

Dress – Joanie*, Cardigan – Primark, Earrings – Forever21, GameBoy pin – CitrusSharpDesigns

In my job, I have to think about marketing a lot. Not only thinking about our brand as a whole, but I need to be marketing my events so that professionals from a wide range of industries will come and speak with students.

For me, one of the best platforms to market on is LinkedIn. If the people you want to reach are professionals, then this is the place you should be targeting. [Read more…]
