Viva Forever! The Spice Girls Reunion Tour 2019 in Cardiff

Many people would have spent months eagerly awaiting the date, after buying the tickets months in advance for the Spice Girls Reunion Tour in the Principality Stadium, Cardiff.  Not me!  When the tickets went on sale last year, I was caught up in the excitement of the “Power of Five”, but with saving to buy a house and seeing them in the O2 Arena on their last reunion tour in December 2007, I could not commit. However, after a drunken brunch with friends, we purchased tickets, deciding to “Never Give Up on the Good Times”, after too many cocktails just over a week ago.

World Radio Day

The 13th February is World Radio Day. It is a day where people around the world celebrate radio and how it shapes their lives.

Radio was a big part of my life for nine years.  My first ‘real’ job (and you will get the pun shortly) was working in radio.  At age 16 I did work experience in the promotional crew, and by age 18 had a full-time job at Real Radio Wales, part of the Guardian Media Group.

I am sat on the floor next to a good friend Ellie (I may or may not be a bit tipsy), celebrating becoming Station of the Year 2007 and my team were thrilled to be announced as Group Team of the Year. I can name everyone in this photo too!

A reflection on my week – Tanya Whitebits, Cardiff Hoteliers Ball and an Interview

What a week I have had!  For January, I have had an immensely busy few weeks, I am looking forward to some peace and quiet in February – but I am sure something will pop up to keep me away from my leisure time.

A True Taste of Wales – Afternoon Tea at Future Inn Cardiff

Did you say sandwiches and cakes, with a Welsh theme? Yes, please!

On Thursday 10th January, I attended a bloggers event at Future Inns in Cardiff Bay which re-launched their afternoon tea offering.  When it comes to indulging on a finger sandwich and scone you are quite literally spoilt for choice in Cardiff.

What is most impressive about the Taste of Wales Afternoon Tea, apart from the price, was that it is homemade.  You always know when cakes have been bought in, or added too, cut up, etc so it makes such a difference when they are made from scratch and only have to travel a few metres from the kitchen to your table.
