I was kindly invited to try the new Franco Manca, at Brighton Marina.. and obviously opted for the cheesiest pizza possible! Safety first: if you haven't eaten then go get yourself a snack because this blog is about to make you HUNGRY.
Whilst hundreds of people took to the streets to run the Brighton marathon, myself and some of my gorgeous blogging gals bathed in the sunshine at Hotel Du Vin to eat afternoon tea and sip on champagne and gin!
A lot of people will agree with me that 2016 was a tough year. January hit me hard, with so many admired celebrities passing away. But 2016 wasn't stopping there.. I know I don't need to mention all of the awful things that happened last year, I know we won't forget them quickly. But somewhere, amongst all of the bad things, I think we forgot to see the good.
What I love about Barcelona is it's all-consuming - from the Gothic quarter's labyrinthine streets to the 'Avenue of Luxury' Passeig de Gracia, where I was fortunate enough to stay this time. To wake up every morning between two of Gaudi's most important creations, surrounded by Prada, Chanel, Dolce and Gabana, was such a blessing. (Even if all I could afford to do was window shopping!)
It's hard isn't it? We start a new year making so many promises to ourselves. "This is the year I'll learn a language" "This is the year I'll stop smoking" "This is the year I'll lose weight"... I'm not a fan of New Years Resolutions but even I got swept away and wrote a blog post about how I won't waste any time in 2017!
After watching episode 2 of 'How to Lose Weight Well' on Channel 4, I took to Twitter to vent. In my opinion, the tv show glamourised the 'quick fix' diets such as eating only bone broth for two days a week...
After a beautiful few days in Disneyland Paris I am shattered. But this fatigue isn't something I can just sleep off in a night, it's persistent and takes over my whole body. For the first two days of my fibromyalgia relapse I was really frustrated - I'd been doing so much better, and I was beginning to no longer notice the impact of this illness on my life!
