Outdoor Cinema

It’s summer for goodness sake we need to get outside, stretch our limbs and get bikini body ready. Are we allowed to say that? Diet. Is. On. Ha joke. Or not? Instead we’ll kick back and relax at the Outdoor Cinema which is a pop up cinema club running throughout the UK from June-September. They pride themselves in bringing unique cinema experiences to the masses, which is just what we need. After all we’ve only been having the same cinema experience for […]

Shoryu Ramen Review

What: Ramen NoodlesWhere: CarnabyWhy you should go there: For an authentic Japanese experience/if you can’t afford to go to Japan.Favourite thing we had: Matcha Cheesecake   It took us a long time to arrange to eat here. It was always busy! So when we did there were big expectations. What was so good about this Japanese noodle joint – Shoryu Ramen?
