    3 Chambord Cocktail Recipes To Try This Weekend || Food & Drink

    January 5, 2018 FrannyMac

    As I mentioned, a few months back I went to an evening of pampering, sneak-peeks and cocktails at Cheeky Salon and Parlour. Chambord provided the drinks for the evening, namely some amazing cocktails involving the raspberry liquor. Chambord has been one of my favourite cocktail ingredients, so after enjoying a few there I decided to recreate some at home. Because, well, it was Friday after all!

    December 6, 2017 FrannyMac

    Recently, things have been a bit hectic. Well, if by recently you mean that the whole of 2017 had been a little bit of a whirlwind. So when Mona asked if I wanted to come along with her to a cocktail masterclass at Hixter I was super excited. After all, if you ask me what the recipe for a great evening had then three things I’d mention would be fabulous company, yummy food and a few cocktails for good measure. And…

    December 30, 2015 FrannyMac

    Anyone who knows me or follows me on Instagram could tell you that I am a massive fan of cocktails. Well, I’m a big fan of drinking them, prior to a few weekends ago my experience in making them was a little limited and mostly involved cobbling things together in hope that they’d taste okay while at university. This all changed when I was invited along to the European Bartending School by Laura and Pippa to try our hand at flaring, free pouring and of…

    24 Hours In Copenhagen, Denmark (May, 2018) || Travel

    September 10, 2018 FrannyMac

    Okay so compared to my first post about my trip to Denmark earlier this year, this is well delayed. But, as the old saying goes “better late than never”. So, as I mentioned, back in May spent 3 days in Denmark and split my time between Koge and Copenhagen. The first two days in Koge involved spending a lot of time with family (after all, it was my nephew’s confirmation!) which was lovely, but the last was spent in Copenhagen…

    “Little Happy Thoughts Make Big Happy Memories” – Unknown It wouldn’t be an “It’s The Little Things” post if it didn’t start with my apologising that it’s approximately 5 years, 7 months late would it?! So, despite having that huge gap between paydays and a few days where I came down with the flu again January wasn’t all that bad. In fact, here are 25 or so great little things that made the month all that much better…

    “Start the day with a grateful heart.” – Unknown. Ohhh boy, it’s another late “It’s The Little Things” post. Only this time, it’s really really really late. I actually considered skipping doing this post and my 5 Happy Things for December but heck, it was a great month and even if it’s a trip down memory lane. I really do enjoy writing these kinds of posts. So here’s me grabbing a cuppa ready to sit down with my diary and give…

    My First Ever Hostel Trip at Generator, London || Travel

    March 15, 2017 FrannyMac

    At the end of February, the team at Generator invited myself, along with a selection of other bloggers, to stay at their London branch and celebrate National Public Sleeping Day. Confession time – when I heard the word “hostel”, I used to have a very snobby perception of what staying at one would involve. A grubby dorm with very little personal space, while having to keep an eagle eye on my belongings. This however all changed last week when I visited…

  • 15 Blog Post Ideas || Blogging Tips

    April 11, 2016 FrannyMac

    As you may have noticed, I’ve been a bit quieter on the blog front than I’ve wanted to be lately. It’s not like I set out to have a blogging break but between having a stressful few weeks and very little time to myself I’ve found inspiration lacking. While I do have days where I spend hours scribbling down things that have popped into my head, there are times that my inspiration just seems to dry up. So to help…
