Current crush: Raspberry and almond butter smoothie

It's official, I'm a smoothie bore fan. I make one most days and, when it's finished, I'll spend at least two minutes pondering what to put in tomorrow's glass of goodness. But that's allowed, right? Because they are quick and easy to make, super refreshing and a lovely way to get lots of fruit and veggies into your system first thing.

This raspberry and almond butter smoothie is my current crush. It contains frozen raspberries, which whip up to make a beautifully cool and refreshing breakfast, and the almond butter creates the most delicious, creamy texture.

A weekend at Sheffield DocFest

Highbrow alert... I just spent the weekend at a documentary festival, yo! I'm always excited when Sheffield DocFest rolls around because the city comes alive at this time of year. Deckchairs and huge screens are scattered around town for outdoor viewings, street food stalls entice you with delicious smells, oh, and there are a whole lot of documentaries being premiered for you to get your teeth into.

So I popped on my press pass and moseyed into town to soak up the atmosphere. With a coffee from Tamper at Sellers Wheel, because of course. Did Tamper know that their interiors would go so well with the DocFest lanyards this year? Top marks!

Carluccio's, Ecclesall Road: Review

A post-work catch up with my gorgeous girl B, a pre-shopping coffee and croissant with my mum... Carluccio's has long been a favourite of mine. There's something about the inviting menu, the buzzy restaurants and the happy staff that make the place a winner whenever you've got the munchies. And don't get me started on the fact that many have a deli attached. It's practically impossible to leave without a new pasta / giant, rose-tinted meringue in your paw.

So after a busy week, my husband and I met at the Carluccio's on Ecclesall Road in Sheffield for a dinner date. We poured over the menus and he got in trouble for not wanting to share a deli plate like my dad and I always do.
