Last month I attended an evening hosted by the fantastic team at Tortilla in their intu Victoria Centre store to celebrate their summer special. I’ve eaten at Tortilla in the past and have really enjoyed the food so this event didn’t disappoint. We were hosted by Tortilla’s marketing team who gave us a rundown on the history of the company and all about their food whilst we tucked into chips and dips. And they treated us to frozen margaritas!
I got to try a new form of exercise last week – hot pod yoga.
One thing you may not know about me is that I really enjoy yoga. It’s played a big part in my health and fitness journey over the past two or so years. I recently spoke about how my gran may or may not have been right about taking the time to meditate more often for the sake of my mental health. My way of making sure I actually achieve that is by practising a little bit of yoga. Even if it’s only five minutes, it means I clear my head and focus on my breathing and energy. It ultimately lets me get rid of a little bit of stress.
When a restaurant launch invite popped into my inbox that listed mojitos on tap, you better know I said yes. New restaurants seem to be opening up in Nottingham every other day, and Son of Steak is the latest addition to Trinity Square. After seeing the venue being put together when out on lunch breaks, I was really excited to see what the restaurant had to offer the ever expanding Nottingham food scene.
Very often when walking through the centre of Nottingham, my eye has been drawn to a large orange cow. That’s the window of Griddle & Shake in the Lace Market, and this week I finally got my bum in there to try their menu.
Griddle & Shake – as you might guess from the name – is all about burgers and milkshakes. They offer top quality food fast, but in a lovely relaxed sit-down venue. An all-inclusive menu means that your visit will be easy even with dietary requirements – gluten free, dairy free, vegans and veggies are all catered for!
As a blogger, sometimes really exciting things drop into your inbox, and one of my most recent event invites was one of those things. The team behind Snizl invited myself and a bunch of local bloggers on a crawl around some of Nottingham’s hidden gems. I’ve lived in Nottingham for exactly a year now, but there’s still so much of the city I’m yet to explore, so of course I immediately said yes and got excited about spending the evening gabbing away over cake and cocktails.
