Aldi Easter

IMG_8318The best cure for post holiday blues is most definitely presents, and the kind folk at Aldi sent me a lovely easter present which was waiting for me when I arrived back from my fun week in Val D’Isere.  I wasn’t sure what to expect but knew it would be a sample of some of their seasonal offerings they have available this Easter.

Debbie Does… Val D’Isère

IMG_8217I just got back from the most amazing ski holiday with my friends in Val D’Isère, France, it was my second time back to the resort and it pretty much cemented my original feelings of being the best ski resort in Europe!  It was one of those holidays where everything just went perfectly; amazing accommodation, fantastic weather and the best company all resulted in a lot of fun being had!  My friends and I took hundreds of photos and I could bore you for days with stories of what we all got up to, but I will save you from an endless slide show of holiday snaps and stories, but instead share with you a brief synopsis of our trip with information I would want you to know if you ever end up making a trip to the resort.

Q- What kind of bees make milk?!

IMG_8184A – Boo-‘Bees’ LOL!  Jokes aside this post is dedicated to the serious issue of breasts, and in particular the boob-tastic charity that is CoppaFeel, founded by the inspirational Kris Hallenga.  I first heard of Kris and her charity last year after watching the documentary ‘Dying To Live‘ on the BBC, it’s pretty emosh but totally worth watching if you ever get the chance.  Kris’ story is truly inspirational, diagnosed with stage 4 breast cancer at 23, a month later with help from her twin sister Maren they set up CoppaFeel, a charity to spread Kris’ story and prevent this from happening to any more young people.

Debbie Does… A perfect poached egg!

I love poached eggs… A fully set white with a delicious warm runny yolk that is exposed by your knife when you cut in to it, but it surprises me how many people don’t know hot to make a perfect poached egg.

Duck & Waffle

IMG_7396I have finally popped my Duck & Waffle cherry… The reason was to celebrate my friend’s new job – not that you need a reason to meet up with your best mates, but after this morning’s fun experience I think more pre-work socials should be on the cards! Continue reading

#NationalBurgerAwards

IMG_7228Last night I got to go an a very special date night with McD as his plus 1 to the Casual Dining Magazine’s National Burger Awards – YES this is actually a thing!!!  We arrived after work at Islington Metal Works behind Angel tube station… I instantly filled with regret as I left my camera at home and only had my iPhone to take photos of such an amazing event.  The location, an event space in a dis-used metal works is best described as grunge-chic.  The roof was covered in colourful lights and bunting but in my eyes the piece de resistance was the tube carriage themed bar!  Apparantly this event is a wedding venue too – I can only imagine how cool the couples are that get married there!

Flowers and food processors!

IMG_6963

I had such a lovely weekend with McD… We weren’t intending to have an over the top Valentines day as it’s always a conflicting time of year for me, 1/2 of me is against the commercial money-making corporate campaign but then the other of me is like – I WANT FLOWERS, PRESENTS & A ROMANTIC DINNER NOW… this year that 1/2 won ;) Continue reading
