A Copenhagen City Break

 

The Danish really know how to turn it on so I can totally see why it has been labelled as one of the happiest places on earth…because everyone is actually very friendly. A massive plus and huge attraction when visiting a new destination, in my opinion.

 
I had asked my good friend and avid traveller, Natalie to join me on this short Nordic adventure over the weekend.  The most unfortunate thing I’d have to say was not being able to spend the extra day or two in the capital as this city truly is one of a kind. In fact, it would be a big call to say it is my second favourite after Berlin, I was that impressed, I’d gladly go back in a heartbeat.
I decided to fly with British Airways and upgrade myself to Club Europe on the outbound flight. Its not something I would do often, especially when its such a short flight, but I do enjoy the chance to use the airport lounges, while having a bit of extra space (and enjoy the champagne). 

I’m a big fan of boutique hotels and I managed to stumble across one in the trendy Latin quarter called SP34 via Booking.com for quite a reasonable price. This included breakfast in the lush green-house looking restaurant called Väkst – but I will come back to this a little later on.

The hotel was approximately 10 minutes walk from Norreport station which is the stop after central and very easy to get to when travelling from the airport. It only took me about 20 minutes and was greatly less cheaper than a taxi is in Copenhagen. So while we are on this topic, I will note that its not the cheapest of places in the world, so don’t be surprised by the prices of everything – they pay high taxes which is all relevant to wages and the cost of living. I get it. 

Nat had arrived a day before me so she was already pretty familiar with the neighbourhood. I met her for a beer then we quickly made our way to the hotel to dump my stuff off and go for a quick explore. As it was a Friday night, it was fairly rammed around the main streets. It was also in good proximity to the very famous Tivoli gardens, you know the fun park. I didn’t have time to check it out but I’ve heard its worth going if you do have some free time and a bit of a thrill seeker. I was pretty exhausted after travelling from work so we opted to go back to the hotel for a few glasses of red wine and a catch up session in the funky foyer area of the hotel. I was really loving the interior design – totally my kind of style!

The next morning, we arose fairly early to have breakfast and go about our day. I didn’t want to be sleeping in as there just wasn’t much time for that on this trip. The breakfast at Vaskt is quite a delightful experience. Most of it is very healthy and all organic. You can sit upstairs amongst all the hanging potted plants, while downstairs is the kitchen there are rows of food items such as fancy yoghurt, fruit, cheeses, veggie sticks, boiled eggs, hand made bread and pastries. There is even bottles of freshly made juices and smoothies and champagne if you are up for it. Of course, we couldn’t resist a cheeky one to get us going for the day! 

After breakfast we finished getting ready and off we trotted for some sight seeing. The one thing that drawed me into this city, is the variety of cafes, art galleries, bars and restaurants – it is endless. In my last post I spoke about my experience at the Studio restaurant which is just one of dozens of Michelin star restaurants they have on offer here. Rather than me repeating myself about this ultimate 9 course lunch, you have the option of reading more in depth by clicking here https://wp.me/p4vC9M-1gU 

We decided after properly gorging ourselves, that a stroll around Nyhavn was very much needed. Famous for its beautifully coloured buildings, sail boats and the ferry terminal, it is what I call the the most instragramable spot of Copenhagen. Of course after a few photos snaps, a beer a long the waterfront was necessary before making our way back to the hotel.

The thing I really do love about travelling is not knowing what is around the next corner or getting lost without hitting panic mode – just casually mooching around discovering new sights and everything that comes with it. On our journey home we stumbled across what I would call a street party with live bands and even a saxophone player! We couldn’t stay long because we knew that wine o’clock was calling us at the hotel… yes they have free wine hour at SP34 from 5 – 6pm. It packs out very quickly as you can imagine, so we made the most of it by grabbing a couple of glasses of wine in the early evening. 

As I am always thinking about food, I was beginning to feel peckish again, so decided it would be a good idea to grab something to eat, freshen up and see if we were up for venturing out again. After all, it was a Saturday night. 

Cocks and Cows was a fun burger joint attached to the hotel and seemed a rather popular place to hang out on the weekend. Not to mention the extensive cocktail list they had and the most delicious, generous burgers I have probably eaten in a long time. I had the New Yorker which was full of juicy chunks of steak accompanied with twister fries, veggie sticks and chilli cheese balls. Not exactly that healthy but that wasnt really what I was aiming to be on this trip.. and anyway all that walking balances it out 🙂

As predicted later on, I went into a massive good coma so we thought it was a good time to call it a night, with cups of herbal tea in bed by 10pm. Rock n roll! 

The following day I woke up with a fuzzy head but I was so glad that I had made myself go to bed at a  decent hour because there is nothing worse when you’ve got loads planned and you’re tired and groggy. Its happened far too many times to even count and I think I’m finally starting to learn. (or is that grow up?!)

The plan was to hire cycles which we did through the hotel, that way we would be able to see more of the city in a short space of time and really, its just what you do here. Even if you aren’t the most confident on a bike, I can assure you that its pretty straight forward in Copenhagen. Bikes tend to rule the roost, a bit like Amsterdam and I really dig that. Not only is it good for your health, its better for the environment and it has financial benefits! 

We wanted to see the Little Mermaid that I was told, was rather on the small side so try not to be to disappointed when you see it. I think I was more fascinated by just how many people were crowding around taking photos of this iconic statue. It reminded me when I was in the Louvre Museum, checking out the Mona Lisa painting. Gosh, too much for my liking but anyway, but you have to laugh. 

Once we had ticked this off our list, it was over to the Palace for the second time in a row. Natalie is a Princess Mary fan and that has nothing to do with the fact that she is an Aussie 😉 The palace is a very open space to the public and consists of four grand-looking buildings facing each other. I was quite surprised by how accessible it was considering when you compare it to the likes of Buckingham Palace which is completely walled off, although there are plenty of security guards roaming around. 

We had a quick pit stop at the tipsy mermaid which was a boat-bar serving local craft beers & rather cute might I add. In the summer months I can only imagine how busy it would get with a prime spot on the water. Next it was over to the bohemian district or Christianshavn, which is well now for its hip cafe culture, arts, music and street food. We didn’t stop there for long as we only had the afternoon to check out the meat packing district in Vesterbro which I believe is the place where all the locals like to hang out in. When I visit a city, its important for me to explore a place like I’m a local and really embrace the cultural by going off the beaten track a little. We ate at Warpigs which serves traditional American BBQ dishes and many beers on tap to choose from. Weirdly enough, I opted for the veggie option but if I hadn’t of eaten a burger the night before I would have been totally down for some ribs. 

There was one particular bar I wanted to visit called Noho. Decked out with pink flurescent bright lights, quirky ornaments and oozing that chic industrial feel, it was love at first site followed by a glass of crisp white wine on the sofa while thinking, I could really do with staying just a few more days. **Sigh**

We ended our bicycle journey at a local trendy cafe called the Living Room. The two level space was decked out in mismated furniture including multiple sofas and supplied with most thirst quenching juices, smoothies and cocktails. The perfect location on a chilled Sunday afternoon reading a book or catching up with friends for a coffee. 

I was feeling emotions of sadness on my way in the taxi to the airport. I knew this city was unique but I had no idea just how special it really was. I cant even imagine how much it would come alive during the summer months and I’m so eager to get back over this way at some point again. Its such a wonderful part of the world and if you haven’t been before, I strongly suggest that this be on the top of your travel list of places to visit! 

November Treasures – Playlist

 

Well, its almost the end of the year…can you actually believe it?! Winter is coming and its  pretty much Christmas already here which means things are moving way too quickly for my liking, but anyway, this month playlist is purely about all my fav’s back in the early noughties. I was right into my electro back then, where artists such as Junior Jack,  Axwell, Armand Van Helden and Deadmau5 dominated the dance floors and music festivals all over the world. 

I used to remember dancing outrageously to Flaunt it by the TV Rock guys, with the awesome Seany B singing on lead vocals – it was a huge hit in the Australian charts for weeks and everyone went crazy over it. (those were the days!)

I also went nuts over Tiga’s you gonna want me which is a rather sexy, electo house track, that came out in 2005 and was a massive hit all over the globe. This tune was played at least 1000 times on the car stereo! 

 

Happy listening!!! 

The Studio – A Culinary Danish Affair

 

Copenhagen has placed itself on the map as being a leader when it comes to Michelin star restaurants, not only for the quality but also the quantity.  It is said that it is the city with the most awarded stars restaurants in the entire world, which is pretty unbelievable when you think about it. 

I had done my fair share of research before I arrived in the Danish capital but the choices seemed to be endless, making it a hard decision to pick one and then deciding whether I wanted to eat a truck load of courses during the day or just before calling it a night. Of course I had my eye on Noma – the 2 Michelin star eatery wowing the critics and once named the worlds best restaurant 3 years in a row, however that has now closed to my utter disappointment and re opened as a spin off called 108.

Finally I came across The Studio, which was situated one floor up on the waterfront with lovely views, in a Tiffany green multi-story complex, which also houses the Standard and was set up by Claus Meyer – who happens to be the co-founder of Noma.

The head chef at Studio is Torsten Vildgaard, who hastrained at a restaurant called Tinggarden north of Copenhagen, and then at restaurants Norrebro Bryghus and Extra. However his formative years were spent in a intense eight-year stint at Noma (there it is again!) where he worked as sous chef and head of research and development before he moved to Studio. In his new kitchen, he gained a Michelin star only four months after opening and believe me, after enjoying this high level culinary experience, I can really see why this was awarded.

 

So it was decided that lunch was the way to go. 9 courses, which does seem a lot, but these are tasting dishes which means they are very small mouthfuls of food but in some cases extremely rich on flavours. 

It is a smaller scale restaurant which sits 40 diners and the 9 course lunch menu is available on a Saturday for 1000 DKK (approximately £120.00) I didn’t fancy drinking too much as this tends to fill me up rather quickly, so just opted with a glass of white called Pouilly Fume. 

Jerusalem artichoke/ cep / pineapple weed

Sorrel / Fermented creme fraiche/ dried caviar

Churro / cheese / truffle

The staff were very tentative and welcoming, and each chef brings the dish to your table explaining the ingredients, which I thought was a winning touch.  The first couple of course are litereally a bite size each, followed by the most incredible tasting bread with salty butter, ‘the main courses’ and then the mind blowing desserts to finish with.  

Scallop ceviche / raw onions / elderflower 

Monkfish /celeriac / apple 

Lobster / passion fruit / chilli 

Duck / grapes / lavender

Apple / coriander / olive oli 

Almond / cep/ balsamic apple vinegar

Everything was timed at a steady pace and nothing was out of place – the execution was completely flawless and the food… well this was out of this world. Playful, unique, experimental and the presentation on point. So many bizarre pairings of ingredients but they worked deliciously well! 

A few more after meal treats

The restaurant itself is minimalistic and contemporary in style, designed by team duo Christina Meyer Bengtson and Ulrik Nordentoft. I really liked the layout, as sometimes you can feel so overwhelmed by over the top designs and trying to cram too much furniture in.

I also got a chance to meet with the chefs, who were all super lovely to chat with and genuinely interested to know what I thought about the food and my overall experience. Very important to ask these questions in my opinion! 

A big thumbs up to the Studio and chef Damian Quintana for making this such a memorable and special Nordic experience for us, I couldn’t recommended it enough – this is the place you want to be visiting when in Copenhagen! 😉

A Prosecco & Pizza fuelled brunch @ Bunga Bunga

Stop everything!!! 

Yes put that down, yes that TV remote, magazine, phone, cup of tea.. no wait not the hot cuppa you can kelp a hold of that one for now.

Right, now that I have (hopefully) your undivided attention, I can go onto begin about that crazy time I was at Bunga Bunga Covent Garden for their latest addition…..The Matinee Brunch.

Im sure by now you’ve heard me speak about Bunga and the brand, if you have bothered to read my other posts (only kidding!), I speak very highly of these venues across London and below are some of my reasons why.

 

  1.  Attention to detail – this is across the board with every venue
  2.  Fun atmosphere – next level
  3.  Service – the staff are always vibrant and and happy

This was my very first time visiting the Covent garden location and once again I was totally wowed by just how ridiculously cool it is. I bought my wonderful friend Yvonne to join in on the craziness as she was well up for the challenge (good girl!). When you first walk in, its actually part of Bunga Tini which happens to be another bar/restaurant on the top floor. Downstairs is where it all happens…

We were whisked away underground and greeted with loud noises of harmonious singing voices, a flamboyant stage, loads of people already seated (yes it was busy) and disco balls with flashing lights.

It had already began and I hadn’t even had a glass of bubbles yet!

Once seated we were greeted with a very smiley waiter who worked his way through the menu and explaining how it all works. It simple for me – food and just pass that prosecco please 🙂 So as it is a bottomless brunch, you can imagine that the bubbles were flowing at an extreme rate. I must of seen at least 40 bottles pass my head at some point – no not for me! But you get the jist of just how generous they are throughout the 2-2.5 hour sitting. 

After listening to some awesome sounds, it was then over the to the band on the stage, where the curtain was drawn and the karaoke screens were fully displayed. I then realised that it was us that had to be involved.. err not quite merry enough for all this just yet… but luckily a few other punters were straight up there hogging the microphone and belting out the classics we all love.

In the midst of all of this, the brunch items were being bought to our table. Starting off with a number of small plates of warm brioche bread, the creamiest of burrata surrounded with lush home made tomato jam, antipasto of meats and salamis, added with some vegetarian quiche which I’m sure wasn’t meant for us but the extra touch was gladly welcomed!

After all this it was then onto the massive metre pizza which consisted of three tasty types like creamy spinach, mozzerella cheese, tuscan sausage etc etc on top of an very nice miniature roman pole stand and wooden flat-board. I love how it was presented so beautifully but it was slightly on the difficult side to see Yvonne over the top of it hehe

When I’m out to a restaurant, I always like to find out what the bathrooms are like – I know, very strange but this can make or break you know! The women’s of course was separate from the mens although to wash your hands was in this rather amazing fountain, which I thought was far too fancy for the toilet – any hoo!

Not to mention that they have some very unique rooms for hire if it takes your fancy for a large soiree in mind. A choice between the lavish Emperors Box, The tipsy Disarano boat or the swanky Martini Lounge.

So whether you are up for an Italian feast, next level over the top entertainment or a mountain full of endless bubbles, this might be something to add to your list of ‘Brunches to do’. 

PS – dessert consumption was missed due to us eating through everything at a snail pace (and maybe consuming a little too much prosecco) hard to believe but there is a lot of food – trust me!!! (go large)

 

The Martinee brunch welcomes you every Saturday afternoon @ £44.00 per head

 

The Blondoner’s Autumnal Playlist

 

 

I don’t know about you, but I’m having a really hard time believing its actually the beginning of October…. I mean, in a way its kind of a good thing (personally) as I’ve managed to settle right down after a non-stop, exhausting (but fun) few months over the Euro summer. I feel that I’m definitely ready for some serious downtime from now, right up until the first week of December….so with these thoughts in mind, I was thinking about what kind of tracks I would like to choose for my October playlist and only one word came to mind – classical. 

This an area of music that I am particular fond of. Why? Well one of the reasons I can give you all is that I used to belong in an orchestra when I was a teenager, playing the flute for many years. Of course I gave that all up when I got too cool for it (as your supposed to do right?!) but that didn’t mean I packed it all in, I still continued to listen after work on my tape decks (oh those were the days!). I didn’t mind a bit of Vilvaldi or Mozart and the likes of violinist, Vanessa Mae from time to time – I’ll admit to this 🙂

To this day, I still find classical music so therapeutic to listen too, but sadly, I just haven’t had the time to go along to any recitals which is purely my own fault, but never mind, there is always Spotify or You tube as a back up! 

The artists I have picked for this month are ones with exceptional talent and can either play an instrument of some sort or the use of ‘classical’ elements, that really stand out in their music. My favourite being the Saxophone (not because its trendy!), followed by the violin, piano and the trumpet.

I just had to add two Above and Beyond tracks because when I saw their acoustics performance for the first time at the Royal Albert Hall, I literally had goosebumps from start to finish. Pretty powerful when you think about it, which is probably why I love this kind of genre so much.

A September health update – Raw & Real

Well it hasn’t been the finest of months I must say. When I say this I don’t mean to sound so dramatic or negative but you know when everything kind of happens at once? It’s kind of a bit like that – I’m sure we can all relate.

On Monday I went to the hospital to have a mole removed on the side of my face. Nothing cancerous although they are still taking it away to be looked at the lab as its always better to be safe than sorry. It was only a minor procedure with a few stitches that are going to be taken out at a later date, but its just the whole thought of having to deal with anything that requires a lovely needle (the little prick!!).

On top of that I’ve had a lot of grief with my wisdom tooth. But without going into too much detail here, its finally getting the pull next week.. lets just say that I’ve never been so excited to take a trip to the dentist, and I visit this place a lot with my Invisalign! 

On the plus side of all of this, I have been taking my capsules every single day for the past 5 weeks and I can honestly say that I have seen some vast improvements. Obviously you cant see all of these results over a blog post so I could just lie through my teeth about it, but then I would only be kidding myself and really, I have no time for that. 

The one thing I have really noticed is my nails. I have battled with brittle nails for years. It probably doesn’t help that I used to wear acrylics for many years plus a load of nail polish which has slightly stained them (and I’m not even a smoker!). I work in an office with people who see my hands all the time, so its important for me to have clean looking, healthy nails. Next time I will upload a picture but if you could see the difference I think you would be as shocked as I am. They are stronger to touch, no broken ends or overlapping which makes it look like you have 5 nails growing in different directions!!

Another thing I’m going to mention is my skin. As I’ve said on social media before, I have had issues with acne since I was about 15 years old. It’s never been that bad but its never really gone away and especially since I’m in my 30’s you hope to think that something like this only hung around in your teens. Of course my party lifestyle has certainly not helped this but I’ve always drank a ton of water, eaten well and cleaned my face twice a day. I also don’t wear heavy makeup because its just too much effort (I’m no Kim K alright).

Now when I look in the mirror I see way less spots and my skin is kind of glowing?! In fact, one of my managers at work mentioned it to me the other day which totally took me by surprise.

Lastly, I want to talk about my sleeping and energy levels. I’ve never had a problem with getting some shuteye, sometimes I can sleep for marathons like 13 hours and think nothing of it. These days I have no time to sleep like that but it’s more the waking up in the middle of the night and dealing with disturbed sleeping patterns. I’m not sure if this is caused from over thinking about everything but never-the-less this seems to be improving. I certainly don’t feel as tired during the day and thats even after a heavy drinking session at the weekend… which brings me to another point.

Recovery. While I normally feel like a bag of puss for 2 days after, it only seems lately that I’m feeling back to my normal self within a day. Now I might be overdoing it here but the fact that I have been to Ibiza and attended quite a fair amount of my boyfriends DJ gigs in the past few weeks, means I’ve got some hard evidence to back this up. 

Finally, I have to mention that I purchased a smoothie machine at work (much to my excitement) so I can make use of my complete powders in vanilla and chocolate. I’m now make use of this everyday, whether it be a breakfast smoothie with banana and oats or an afternoon snack before a workout with peanut butter and chocolate. I can’t tell you how good these really taste and I reckon I’ll have everyone at work on them in no time 🙂

These are by no way a meal replacements, I don’t really believe in replacing ALL solid foods and I certainly don’t need to be loosing a heap of weight being a smaller size. I just think its great to mix things up a little, in particular when those sugar cravings decide to creep up in the afternoon!! 

So that’s it. This may not apply to some and I get everyone has different opinions, but this is just me being very honest and hopefully encouraging a few to have a think about their well being. You don’t need to make dramatic changes to see results, its all about taking the first steps and making a few lifestyle adjustments. My mind is always open when it comes to making improvements in whatever aspect of my life that could be. We all want what is best for ourselves but sometimes it can be hard and scary to say hey, yeah lets do this!

 

 

 

 

Waxy Lemon’s Rolling stock BBQ

Sunday afternoon, East London, Sunshine, BBQ’s – Need I say more?

After finally getting around to posting this, I couldn’t help but feel emotional that the UK summer is now coming to a close… but hey, its been a pretty jam packed one with lots of glorious holidays abroad and plenty of memorable events, so one mustn’t complain too much. 

…….So back to that one fine bank holiday weekend afternoon where BBQ’s were in and the grey skies were never to be seen (well for most of it anyway)

I want to firstly say a big thank you to Devante and his astute team for putting on the goods and also inviting me along – I’m talking delicious burgers, cool beverages and well, tequila?!

Lets not get into that part just yet shall we 🙂

I had invited a couple of friends to join me, which was rather lovely that all of them could make the effort and come down as the money raised from the event was going towards a good cause (always what I love to hear) and even though the sun only had a glimpses of rays, the drinks were flowing nicely and the smell of hearty bbq food was lingering in the air.

The venue itself is rather cool if I might add. For those who are familiar with the area, you may have heard of it.. so does Rolling stock bar ring any bells? The venue offers alfresco and indoor space, there is also a kitchen, DJ booth and some very creative artwork on display. It gave off a real lively vibe without seeming too hipster nor trashy. 

As part of the deal we were offered a bottle of vino on arrival – white or red or you could opt to have the bucket of beers and of course, one big juicy burger with all the trimmings.

On the menu, was a few options of mega good looking burgers. I decided to go for the jerk after inhaling all of the spices before eagerly awaiting its arrival to the table. It also included a generous side of chips, beautiful corn on the cob and crunchy slaw. My friends had a mixture of the Waxy lemons burger which was beef with red onion marmalade and the veggie, vegan option which meant the menu was very accommodating to everyones needs! 

After feeling so full up we were offered a round of tequila shots, which honestly sounded like a good idea at the time….(come on, we’ve all been there), however this may have created a little bit of a party atmosphere which was then quickly scuttled inside and just in time for the DJ to break out into some house tunes. (including the obligatory dance moves)

I don’t think i’ll need to carry on from here as we all know how the story goes or ends 😉 lets just say that plenty of fun was had, lots of yummy food indulged and a few too many raspberries were sipped, but this is life and as they say, it is here to be lived.

Mr Fogg’s Tavern – A Very British Brunch.

Not breakfast, not lunch…..

I’ve always been a huge fan of the Mr Fogg’s Mayfair location, an of course there are there other charismatic venues, such as Bart’s, Maggie’s, Bunga Bunga and Cahoots. Surprisingly enough I have never stepped foot into the ever so quaint British pub – Mr Fogg’s Tavern. You know you’ve arrived when you are greeted by a beautiful array of bright blooms (including my fav – sunflowers) and once that door is ajar its fair to say that there is no lack of creativity what so ever going on inside! 

I absolutely adored the traditional Union Jack flag bunting covered on the top of the high ceilings…and that wasn’t the only thing hanging down, it was literally covered in all sorts of fascinating bits and bobs – mostly antiques. Its really hard to stop yourself from glancing up every five minutes. Seriously so much going on. 

Now time to focus on the all important feast of a brunch….

(Bear in mind that this menu is still fairly new and did launch a month or so ago, its just taken me a forever in a day to get my A into G and actually write this review – sincere apologies on that front) 

We were greeted with small starter plates (or boards) to share around the table with my new blogger pals and I must say I was a little taken back by the look of the frogs legs. Maybe its just the thought of it which makes me feel unsettled but have no fair, this is actually really chicken and tastes pretty damn good. I would say a little sparing on the meat side of things but as a starter all can be forgiven. Accompanied with chunky roasted sweet potatoes (you just cant go wrong with this one) and banana sauce – I say what?! As I was super curious, I gave it a few dips and I was very impressed with the combo of flavours going on.  A definite one to try. 

Next was the honey roasted beetroot and goats cheese croquettes. The name itself is basically a done deal. Anything with beetroot and goats cheese together is not even a question – give it to me, all of it!!!! Also indulged from the table and not to be missed from the equation, was the crispy herb tempera prawns with spicy dip. As Roald Dhal would say, Scrumdiddlyumptious! 

For the main course, I was really craving something rather light and as I was going off to a festival not long after. The lobster and avocado salad with zesty dressing caught my eye while a giant (or what seems) plate of succulent, glistening, golden Han hock sitting nicely on a bed of creamy mash whipped past the table. It’s honey and ginger smells flowing around the room. Of course me being me, I just had to try a teeny tiny mouthful. 

Sadly, I had to exit before the desserts were bought out – shock horror I know. But to make up for missing out, I got to taste a few punchier than punchy refreshments. All gin based which I love, extra fruity and very much hit the spot!

Speaking of gin, if you don’t mind the tipple, I’ll let you in on a little secret. Up the stairs is a thing they call the parlour, filled with a botanical lab that smells incredible and is decked out in the cutest furnishings you’ve ever laid your eyes on. I’m hoping next time around I might get lucky enough to be invited along on to the gin safari that I’ve heard so much about! 😉

The Blondoner’s Playlist – August Anthems

 

August = The peak of the European Summer and parties galore! 

With that in mind, I’ve decided that this months playlist is all about commercial party anthems. Im talking about some of the biggest summer tracks over the past 10 years, that have made us lose our marbles on the dance floor and created some of the best memories with our close pals. 

I was once a big fan of David Guetta when I loved his productions from Pop life and Guetta Blaster albums, so I’ve decided to include two of his best tracks (in my opinion) that are guaranteed dance floor fillers. 

Disclosures also features in there, who is another artist with loads of quality tunes, in fact so good, it makes it really difficult to choose the top one!!!

Happy raving 🙂

 

 

The Blondoner’s Health Journal (A new chapter)

***A Little Announcement***

 

So ladies and gents, a bit of an update on me and what I’ve been up to lately. As always, there is so much going on and never really enough time to focus on myself or taking the time to improve on important things, like my health (balancing etc). Living in London can really take its toll and lately I have been feeling exhausted, lethargic, anxious, with constant spotty skin. Not ideal!

 

As you would have gathered by now, I’ve always been into working since I was young and a bit of a health buff, but its taken a back seat of late and now I feel it’s time to take some action!

 

Thats when I was introduced to these bad boys. I like to call it *goodness in a jar*! Not only are the benefits amazing, there is a long list of fruit and veggies contained inside little bean. I’m pretty excited to start this journey, so much so, that I’ve decided to start a health journal to keep all my followers up to date with my progress. Of course, there will still be updates of restaurants and the odd cocktail but for now its time to focus on feeling good as well as enjoying a balanced lifestyle!
