New Burger in Cambridge: Chosen Bun

Last week I was invited to the best kind of event – a burger event! Cambridge has one new shining star in burgers opening up; Chosen Bun!

These guys have one already open in London, but had a new rebrand just for the Cambridge store, and I was so excited to see what it was all about. [Read more…]

Getting Cheesy with Le Rustique

Here’s a fun fact – I actually hated cheese until very recently. The story goes that I was given some cottage cheese as a small child, and told it was cheese, so I stopped eating it. But actually, it was just the smell but also the texture of hard cheeses that I didn’t like.

Gymming for Noobs

Tips for Gym Noobs

I came to a bit of a shock last week. I asked one of the gym staff to take my measurements (as I don’t weigh myself at home) and I found that I had not changed stats in the last 4 months. I felt distraught.

Yes, so, I’m not the most dedicated gymmer. Yes I did take 3 weeks off when I did my heel in. Yes I still ate that pizza, and that burger.

But I need to step up my game now. Go big (or…skinny in this case) or go home. [Read more…]
