On our two week adventure, Barcelona was the first stop. A first time for both of us, and expectations were high! Pretty much everyone we know has been and had plenty of recommendations for tourist attractions and things to see. It didn't disappoint. We both absolutely loved Barcelona - it was enchanting and exciting and … Continue reading A taste of Barcelona
It was a Friday night, the start of a bank holiday weekend, Augustinas had his last day at his current job, we were going on holiday in a week's time. Basically, we were in great spirits and we had our good friend (and old colleague of mine) Amy coming round for dinner. We thought about … Continue reading Bagels 4 Ways
It was a great weekend! After all the hiking and exploring we decided that it was time to try something new - Stew & Oyster. It opened doors only a month or so ago and it is already gaining reputation. Kelham Island has already created a hipster scene with Sofar Sounds, Peddler market and new … Continue reading Stew & Oyster. Kelham Island
At the end of July we experienced something new for the both of us - a Sofar Sounds gig! I know this is a little different to what we usually write about, but I feel it encompasses the creativity, community and independence of Sheffield, so it kind of works. For those not in the know, … Continue reading Sofar Sounds
Rainy day. Most importantly Monday. On a rare occasion you have a nice day. But not this Monday. Ellie is 22 and she just had chicken pox. For the past year I have been nick-naming her with food names. One of them was banana bread. So just to make her chicken pox a bit more … Continue reading Rainy Banana Bread
One summery afternoon me and Ellie went out for a walk and as usual we came back through Sharrow Vale road. We love that road - it's where the most relaxing and soul warming places are. It was down there that we spotted Akentannos. I am not experienced in writing reviews, but I can tell … Continue reading Something Special? Akentannos.
A colleague and a good friend of mine Nanouschska made some crazy delicious jams and I managed to get a hold of blackcurrant and rhubarb! Without any doubts this was an opportunity to make grandmas pancakes. While spending summers at grandparents house, we would get these every week! Being a farm and acres of fields we would have everything fresh and even jams would be … Continue reading Pancake & Jam Weekends.
I have known Olivia and Laura since we were around 13 years old and they still remain two of my closest friends. Four years ago we went our separate ways, myself and Laura to Sheffield uni and Olivia to Leeds. Despite our long(ish)-distance friendship, we always make the effort to meet up every few months … Continue reading Mexican street food & adventures in Leeds
In a bit of a weekend tour of Kelham Island (Sheffield's v.cool up and coming industrial district), we are covering an independent cafe and rooftop bar all in one post! 2 for the price of 1! First up, the Grind Café. A Kelham Island establishment since 2010 - they have been serving up coffee, breakfast, … Continue reading Grind Café & Krynkl INC Bar
I came back home from work one Thursday evening tired, a bit disappointed... and hungry! Basically it was not a good day at work. If I do have a day like this, I cook. It's my escape. Ellie was spending the evening at yoga, so I had time to prepare a nice meal for us. This … Continue reading Hendo’s & Red Wine Chicken
