Taste the Mediterranean with Balcony Tea

Balcony tea review

I don’t ¬†want to tempt fate, but it looks like today might actually be the first ‘proper’ day of summer! The lack of warmth and sunshine so far this summer has caused a lot of frustration from people, and I’ve heard so many say that if they could, they’d move to the Mediterranean.

I was never really keen on cheese, but I know that a lot of people who stop eating dairy do miss it. With that, and my love of pizza in mind, I thought I’d start a new series reviewing vegan pizza options in Brighton, with my first being Morelli Zorelli.

Coast to Coast Christmas Menu

If you follow me on instagram (if you don’t, why not? Do it now!) You’ll see that a few weeks ago I went to Coast to Coast in Brighton to sample their Christmas menu. I really love my food, as you can tell from many of my blog posts, and the lovely people at Coast to Coast invited myself and a number of other lovely Brighton bloggers (I’ll list them below) to come along and enjoy their foodie goodness!
