Angeethi’s Sommelier and Spice evening

Angeethi Low Fell

When Priya Mishra opened Angeethi less than two years ago in Low Fell, one thing was clear. She didn’t want the restaurant to go down the fusion cuisine route. Instead, traditional family dishes are served with skill and style by the highly experienced kitchen team with a nod to Indian street food.

Priya’s passion and enthusiasm for the food she presents is boundless and at the forefront is a strong desire to quash the belief that you can only eat curry after 5 pints of lager. This is the driving force behind the partnership with HB Clark wines and the Sommelier and Spice tasting evening. With Sommelier David Robertson on hand to curate a perfectly matched selection we were in for a treat.

THE summer sandals from New Look

 

New Look Shoes

You might have seen these babies crop up in an outfit post a little while back but after someone admired them on Instagram I feel compelled to show them off again!

With a silver holographic and black strap, these Birkenstock-a-like soled sandals are so comfy and easy to wear. The plain colour way means they go with even the snazziest of summer outfits and slip on for effortless poolside chic too. The holographic iridescence catches the sun and looks so pretty and the black patent heel strap looks a bit smart.

He chose the paisley denim short sleeve shirt (£60) and decided on 2 different summery ways to style it out.

George at Asda 3 in 1 capsule challenge

George at Asda Pencil Skirt

The lovely guys from George at Asda recently set me the challenge of transforming 1 basic item in to 3 different outfits for 3 very different occasions.

The key to a successful capsule wardrobe is starting with good base pieces. I chose a black jersey pencil skirt (£8) from the Plus Size range to start with. I absolutely love multi-purpose wardrobe items and I always like to think of different ways I can wear a piece before I buy it.

Click below to keep on reading how I turned 1 skirt in to 3 sleek and chic looks. Work, Sight seeing and drinks with the girls.

The Orchid, Newcastle

The Orchid Newcastle

The Orchid Newcastle

When the lovely folks over at the Copthorne Hotel on Newcastle’s Quayside got in touch and asked me to help them create a Bloggers Guide to Newcastle, I jumped at the chance.  We were kindly sent off to review The Orchid* Chinese restaurant which is across the road from the hotel in an old Bonded Warehouse.

On entering, we were greeted with great customer service and beaming smiles whilst being shown to our table. With several seating areas throughout the restaurant as well as a private room, each table is afforded the relative luxury of being well spaced from their neighbour, a rarity in most restaurants it would seem. Chic contempory interior and well dressed staff exuded an air of class and quality.
