As most of you will already know, I've got a massive sweet tooth. I love anything to do with chocolate - whether it's solid or liquid haha - but one of my all time favourites has to be Rocky Road.

I didn't research any recipes for this as I know that many people like to put either raisins, nuts or jelly tots in there. I'm all about the chocolate chips and marshmallows!!

- Marshmallows
- Chocolate Chips
- Digestive Biscuits
- Milk Chocolate 

- Take a few biscuits and crush them in a bowl
- Add the chocolate chips and marshmallows to the bowl with crushed biscuits
- Melt the chocolate in a heatproof bowl on the stove
- Pour the melted chocolate in the biscuit mixture and mix 
- Empty the bowl in a square dish
- Leave to cool
- Serve!

That's how easy and quick this recipe is! So if you have guests coming over and want to whip some dessert up quickly without putting too much effort in then here you go! This is also a great treat for the little ones, and perfect for lunch boxes!

What's your favourite pudding?

Good Morning Everybody!

I've been getting so much inspo from Instagram smoothie bowl pages that I wanted to create my own.

Smoothies are a massive part of my life anyway, I tend to have at least 3 a week because they give me lots of energy and just make my mornings 10 x better!

For this smoothie bowl I had used:
-a handful of frozen berries
-half a frozen banana
-almond and coconut soya milk
-special K cereal with red berries

This is what has come out of it! I don't know about you but I think that's acceptable for my first attempt haha!! At the end of the day, it was really yummy and healthy and filled me up for the whole morning!

Have you tried a smoothie bowl? How did it turn out?

Review || Turtle Bay Carribean Restaurant

Morning, Lovelies!

I love food. It is my passion. Good food is something that I cannot resist and after hearing so many positive comments about Turtle Bay in Nottingham, I just had to finally pay them a visit!

I have previously been to Turtle Bay, but only for drinks rather than food on a number of occasions. Their cocktails are to DIE for! Kieran and I were lucky enough to make it just on time for Happy Hour which meant that we got our drinks 2 for 1.

We shared our started as neither of us can ever finish a starter to ourselves with a main! We went for the vegetable stuffed rotis which were delicious. They were quite spicy, but that's what made them so incredible and yummy!

For the main, I chose the seafood curry as I wanted something light. It was nice, however the massive prawn creeped me out a bit and slightly put me off my meal.

Kieran went for the chicken (surprise, surprise). He really enjoyed it, however he did complain about the size of the meal as it was rather small and he had asked for fries but received sweet potato fries which he doesn't usually like, but actually scoffed them in under 5 minutes! I tried one and I really liked them so I don't blame him at all!

Overall, the food was good but not amazing. But what can you expect for the price? It was quite cheap. The service on the other hand was great. The waiter kept coming back to our table asking if there was anything else we needed and if the food was alright. So, thank you Turtle Bay Nottingham for providing us with lovely service!

Have you been to Turtle Bay? What did you think of their food and service?

Recent Meals Out

Hey guys!

Due to being a super busy student I haven't had much time to eat proper meals at home so as a result I've been eating out quite often. My favourite place was propably Fat Cat in Nottingham City Centre.

I went out to Fat Cat twice in one week, the first time with my girl friends Evie and Ama
rah, and the second time with the boyfriend. The first night we ordered a round of never ending cocktails/mocktails and a platter of nachos with jalapeños, guacamole, sour cream and salsa. They were so delicious that the second time I went with Kieran we ordered some too!

Me and my lovely went for a pizza to share and nachos to start off with. Of course the food was delicious as always, and I am planning on returning there very soon!

Next up is one of my all time favourite restaurants - Zizi's. I love the food there, it is so rich and full of flavour and the staff always seem very friendly. I went there twice, once with my good friend Safina, and the second time with Kieran (we appreciate good grub). Me and Safina ordered a garlic bread platter which was to die for. The sweetness of the caramelised onions contrasted very well with the bitterness of the flat bread and garlic.
For our mains we chose a pizza each (obviously). It was crispy, full of toppings and it melted in our mouths with each bite.
What other way to end our lunch date than to celebrate with a bottle of wine? 
When me and my other half went to Zizi's in the evening for a lovely meal I chose a chicken, parma ham and spinach calzone which was out of this world. It was so yummy that I will definitely recommend it to any pizza lover.
Kieran went for a bacon wrapped chicken kiev with roasted baby potatoes which according to him was also very delicious!!
Another one of my favourite restaurants is Bella Italia and that's where I usually end up with, with my best friend Jess. The started was very small. It was a selection of mushrooms covered in garlic with sour dough bread. There wasn't a lot of it however it was rather tasty.
On the other hand, the calzone I went for wasn't the best. It was soggy and didn't have a lot of filling on the inside, bearing in mind there was a piece of chicken stuck on the outside of the crust and some tomato puree poured on top of it which made it taste odd and even more soggy than without it.. I wasn't impressed with the food this time and am hoping for a big improvement on my next visit.
My most recent visit was to Chutney which is an Indian restaurant/takeaway. I chose the Tajj Mahal which was a mixture of beef, lamb and chicken with spicy potatoes. It was lovely, however I could not handle the spice for too long!
And here's a cute picture of me and Kieran promoting Chutney's charity event to raise money for Teenage Cancer Trust in the name of Brian and Musa.

Have you guys been out anywhere nice recently? Any restaurant recommendations?

Lots of love,

Pre-University Celebrations

Good Evening Fashionistas!
I wanted to share with you one of the most special night out I've had recently. It was for one of my best friend Robyn's 18th birthday meal and we had such a blast! Our friendship group is so perfect, I wouldn't change it for the world. As we have all decided to do something different with our lives this year, we won't be able to see each other as often as we used to which makes me very sad as I just cannot live without those girlies! They are the butter to my toast and the milk to my tea with a hint of brandy ;) For our last night out together we went to celebrate Robyn's birthday at the Fat Cat Restaurant which gives 50% off on food and 20% off on drinks with an NUS card! How amazing is that?! The food was amazing. We all ordered a round of cocktails, and mocktails is some cases! Overall we had virgin strawberry daquiris, pina coladas, and screaming orgasms. They were all so delicious!! You cannot go wrong with a 2 4 1 offer! I ordered garlic green beans as my side and a avocado chicken couscous salad as the main. OH MY GOD were they delicious or what?! It was the nicest meal I've had in ages, it was so girly and cute I loved it!!! For dessert I ordered the apple crumble which came in a milkshake glass with ice cream!! Oh sweet Jesus, it was the best apple crumble I've had in my entire life! It was just so perfect, I can't even describe it. I reckon that's what rainbows taste like!!! Anyway, I've attached some photos from my night out in this post, hope you guys enjoyed reading about my fantastic night out!!
Cute little outfit, very appropriate for raving at Rock City!!
Lots of love,
