Checking in at Hotel Chocolat

Could you possibly have grabbed a better spot to open any type of shop never mind Ireland’s first Hotel Chocolat Cafe! Right at City Hall where Donegall Sq East, North and Wellington Place meet. This has to be one of the most prime locations in town. Hotel Chocolat has been around since the early 90s... Continue Reading →

Jazz & Fizz at Bert’s

Bert's Jazz Bar, part of the now world renowned 5* Merchant Hotel have themselves a brand new afternoon tea menu with a twist. A selection of bite size savoury treats to nibble on and a glass of prosecco to wash them down with. Sounds fantastic! Nic and I were very fortunate to be asked along... Continue Reading →

Father’s Day Feast

So I'm a Dad. A challenging and incredibly rewarding job, but unfortunately the pay is crap. Once a year though we get our wee day. An excuse if ever one was needed to treat myself to something tasty. Fortunate timing then that Asda sent me out a couple of pretty mean looking steaks to have.... Continue Reading →

Here's just a few of the pics plus a little slide show of a handful more, hope you enjoy.   Instantly... Continue Reading →

Headspace

I'm sitting here in Starbucks (something I will beg forgiveness for later) and beginning to type this post. I don’t really know where it’s going to go, how long it will be or if anyone will ever read it but I have to write it. I wonder do other bloggers ever get that? Something you... Continue Reading →

A Great Solo Act

Right so I promise the title of this post will be my first and final ‘solo’ pun. Well, maybe not, but it was my first visit here in quite a while and this time I wasn’t ‘flying solo’ (sorry! 🙂 ), I was with my wee Mammy for a belated Mother’s Day meet up (she was... Continue Reading →

A Great Way to be Social

So there's been plenty of talk about the Ohh Social app recently from myself, other bloggers and plenty of people in general. If you haven't heard of it or haven't got a chance to look at what it’s about, read on, and also check out the fantastic offer that Ohh Social have given me for... Continue Reading →
