Hunter 486 at The Arch London Review


Hunter 486 at The Arch London Vegetarian Review

Hunter 486 is a boutique restaurant that sits within The Arch hotel London, which is just a few minutes walk away from Marble Arch. It prides itself on its 'unique fine dining experience' and offers a 'Best of British' inspired menu, which I was invited to taste alongside their accompanying wine menu. The interiors of the restaurant boast a relaxed yet luxurious vibe with rich red, leather booths, contemporary dangling lights and an open plan kitchen with a roaring fire oven.

As we slid our way into our booth, we were greeted with the food menu and a separate wine menu to team with our choices. Now, I do enjoy wine on a regular basis however when it comes to matching wine with my food I can openly admit I do not have a clue where to begin. Luckily our waiter was on hand to recommend the best wines for each of our dishes.

Scotch & Soda at CHAMÄLEON Berlin

Scotch & Soda at CHAMÄLEON Berlin Review

I can't say I'm much of a regular theatre-goer, nor can I say seeing a show is top of my list whilst I am travelling or on a holiday abroad. Usually my typical travel itinerary will prioritise sightseeing, food, hunting down a favourite bar, vintage shopping and maybe some art if I'm feeling particularly cultured that day. But, you know what? Sometimes going to the same bar in a city night-after-night can get a little repetitive, so why not change up routine with a trip to the theatre instead?!

A few weeks ago I was invited along to view the new Scotch & Soda show at the CHAMÄLEON theatre whilst I was visiting Berlin. The show is aptly described as a 'whiskey-soaked evening of circus and jazz that will leave you amazed, amused and ready to join the party'. It was actually my first experience of seeing a theatrical show whilst outside of the UK (well, other than a show in Disney World when I was a kid, but we won't count that) and I've got to say, it's really opened my mind up to considering seeking out different shows during my next city break.

Stop Using Groupie As A Dirty Word

Vintage 70s Fashion Blogger Groupie Slogan T-Shirt

"In the 1960s, 'groupie' was just a word used to describe girls who wanted to hang out with groups, but over the years it has slowly become a negative term." - Pamela De Barres.

Nipa Thai at The Lancaster London Review


Nipa Thai is an upscale Thai restaurant located deep within the Lancaster London hotel and a few weeks ago myself and James were invited along to taste what they have to offer on their menu. The Lancaster hotel is a well-known, 4-star hotel located directly opposite the vast greenery of Hyde Park. It's just a ten-minute stroll away from Marble Arch and the endless shops of Oxford Street, which makes it an entirely convenient place to stay if you're exploring the offerings of West London.
