An Evening at Jamie's Italian

Jamie's Italian

Earlier in the year I was invited to spend an evening at Jamie’s Italian in Reading - never one to turn down a free feed chance to ‘expand my culinary horizons’ I happily accepted and started planning the evening. Since I had I received the initial invitation email while spending the afternoon with two of my Mum friends; discussing our mutual returns to work, nurseries, pushchairs and 1st birthdays, it seemed only natural to ask them to join me. My friend Caroline came along in her capacity as an ‘official foodie’ courtesy of her day job, while Anna joined us as “just a minion with an opinion”. (Jones 2015)

Mya Lacarte Restaurant Review

Last week I had the pleasure of indulging in a mid-week dinner date with Darren at one of my favourite local restaurants; Mya Lacarte in Caversham. I first came across this independent culinary establishment as part of my 30th birthday celebrations last year, my friend Lucy (aka The Luxe Life) planned a surprise birthday meal for me having come across the various recommendations on TripAdvisor.

Left Bank Martini Review

Let me start this post with a little confession; I've never reviewed a candle before, or indeed any product where I'm required to rely solely on my use of adjectives to describe it. Fashion is pretty straightforward; style the item, wear it, photograph it and add accompanying text, always mindful that ‘a picture is worth a thousand words’ and therefore I need only add fifty and let the photos do the talking instead. Not the case with a candle - I'm going to have to dig deep into my vocabulary of scented expressions and try to convey via this blog post just how lovely the fragrance of this candle actually is.
