Who celebrates Christmas in July?

Me that’s who! The last couple of years, one of the highlights in my social calendar has been attending a Christmas in July event. I love celebrating the festive season, in my summer clothes, while digging into a Christmas in July menu, with festive drinks and entertainment. This year the venue was at Steinbeck and Shaw and PRYZM Cardiff, who got to showcase that they are more than just a nightclub.

The Gin to My Tonic – Gin Brunch in Cardiff

Unless you have been living under a rock for the last few years, chances are you will have noticed that Gin is very much in style.  From Gin distillery tours to Gin tastings and even Gin and tonic tea bags – Gin is undeniably a firm favourite.

BITE Cardiff Food Festival at Insole Court

Viewing from my lounger on the beach in Gran Canaria, my social media streams were full of delicious-looking food as the BITE Cardiff Food Festival team teased pictures of the fantastic food that could be sampled on the lead up to the event.

The event was held on Saturday 14th July 2018 at Insole Court between 12 noon and 10pm.  It was advertised as a ‘food festival with a difference’ and focused on high-quality dishes and no fast food, and no entrance fee.  The Chef’s were given the challenge of creating a single dish to sell for £3 each.
