Who is ready for some drinking games? I definitely threw my name in to the ring when Lactofree contacted me to be a part of their latest drink challenge.  The mission is to create a fun drink. So, in fairness, I created one to kick start a sunny day. And… one as a grown-up way to end a sunny day. If you’re an avid Sunny reader, you’ve seen me mention drinking shakes on several occasions.

Guiltless, Gluten Free Afternoon Tea at Intercontinental!

Guiltless Gluten Free Afternoon Tea Intercontinental Park Lane

How could a Guiltless, gluten free afternoon tea in London even exist? I had serious doubts about this invitation I received from Intercontinental London Park Lane. Therefore, within two days of receiving it, I was seated right where I should be to see (or perhaps I should say eat) for myself. Because I was so quick to jump on this invitation, I did end up sitting in the gorgeous Wellington Lounge all alone. Just me Continue Reading »

Byron Burger Review- Who’s Your Burger Daddy?

Bryon Burger London Review

Byron Burger has been hot on my ‘must try list’ ever since I hit Shake Shack in Covent Garden earlier this year. It seems American burger joints have ignited all over London. Queues often stretch around buildings for hot new places in high traffic areas. Once I blogged and raved about Shake Shack, I hit Five Guys in both America and London to do a little comparison.

They think Christmas celebrations in London involve Brits eating goose and hoping Jacob Marley doesn’t knock on their door. Continue Reading »
