Steak & Honour now officially open in Cambridge

We are pleased to announce Steak & Honour in Cambridge is now officially open! As the first bricks and mortar site, it joins its fleet of distinctive vintage vans which are famous around the city. The local burger heroes are now serving their famed gourmet fast food from a permanent city center home located on Wheeler Street, right next door to the Corn Exchange.

Steak & Honour brings an independent edge to Cambridge’s streets, a city that is sadly inundated with chain restaurants. The new venue is built upon Steak & Honour’s values towards food and service. David and Leo’s Michelin starred backgrounds demand the right ingredients sourced from people who care, delivered in a honest, no-frills, uncontrived way. Steak & Honour bring together the best of both worlds.

3 ways to make money online from home

You probably won’t need me to tell you that the Internet has revolutionised the way we work – not just in terms of things like cloud computing that enable us to collaborate with those on the other side of the globe, but also in relation to where we work and the hours that we work.

In an era in which the traditional ‘9 to 5’ office job is seemingly disappearing, it’s certainly becoming common to make money online from home – and here are just three ways you can do exactly that.

  1. Offer your skills to people across the world

We’ve all got certain skills, whether gained from our hobbies and interests or day-to-day work. Simply glancing at the categories at the freelancers’ marketplace Fiverr, for example, reveals the likes of web design, social media marketing, music composition and financial consulting to be among the site users’ specialities.

Medical Cosmetics Nottingham – Botox Injections Review

Its been a while since I have posted but things have been really busy with school holidays, a break away in Italy and then the launch of my homes & interiors store whatlottieloves.co.uk. Finally though I have a few spare minutes before the school run to tell you about my recent visit to Medical Cosmetics Nottingham where I was invited to view their clinic and check out their range of aesthetic treatments.

The clinic is located in Nottingham and is very smart and sleek.  With a wide range of treatments on offer including botox, fillers, chemical skin peels and microdermabrasion the clinic is headed up by Dr. Asher Siddiqi and a team of professional clinical staff.  I had been considering botox for a while (I am 38 this year and had noticed a few fine lines appearing and a constant deep furrow between my brows), and had investigated a few clinics but hadn’t decided on anywhere and had in fact avoided clinics where the injections were not done by trained clinical professionals.

Back to school shoes with Debenhams

We’re into nearly the end of the first full week of the school summer holidays.

So far I’ve only raised my voice a few times and haven’t resorted to drinking gin from an Evian bottle by 11am.  These are the small wins I am celebrating since Roo finished school on the 22nd of July. We were lucky in that we had an awesome press trip down to Cornwall to stay at the family friendly Esplanade Hotel (more of that in another blog post), which kept us occupied for 4 days and also I am excited because J is letting me indulge my love of interiors as we start to plan the re-decoration of his house.
