Busted, Gateway Guitar Bands & Why We Should Support Them

Yesterday marked the day that many people have been looking forward to for years: Busted are back. After a lot of rumors, deliberation and the age old question (will Charlie Simpson EVER return?) it’s finally happened and there’s gonna be a big old reunion. However, some people didn’t receive this news particularly graciously, and instead of throwing a party and jumping on the welcoming committee, they outwardly expressed disgust. Fine, we all have our views! But why are pop-rock bands some of the most sneered at in the industry? And why does the music that a musician creates have to be limited to just one genre?

Gaucho Restaurant, Dubai

I’ve always loved food, but it’s only been in the last few years that I’ve *really* had something to say. Gaucho is an established name back in the UK and I’d heard so much about it. After one of my best friends visited for her birthday recently with me all the way over in the UAE, I decided to Google it… just to look. I was overjoyed to find that it had branched out to the Emirates and so I booked myself a table whilst on my trip to Dubai.  Continue reading

CLS Cooks: Salmon & Leek Potato Gratin

I love to cook. It’s one of my favorite things to do, and it’s quite possibly the only domestic task that gives me pleasure. I have a great relationship with food, and it gives me passion and inspires me to try out new tasty treats. One of my fall-back comfort dishes has always been ‘Potato au Gratin’, which I’ve been making since I was twelve. However, on a lazy Sunday, I decided to put a bit of a twist on a classic.

Ai Fiori, Manhattan, New York City

I’m becoming a Michelin Star restaurant fiend. If that’s a faux pas to make a big thing about, sue me. If I’m going to spend a large proportion of my income on food, I’m going to shout about it. You see, whilst I’m more than comfortable enough to go to these types of places, my bank account still notices. I’m not exactly a millionaire. I’m happy with that though, because Ai Fiori, my third ever Michelin Starred restaurant is memorable to me, because I don’t get to taste food like this every day.

(An) Ultimate Food Tour Of New York

Weird title, huh? Of course I can’t claim to definitively give a guide to where to eat in New York. That would be insane! It’s such a huge place, and I was only there a few days. I can, however, give insight into a few of the greatest places I ate – and wanted to eat - during my recent trip to New York City!

Roof Garden Restaurant, Bergamo

I’m a huge foodie, and I love nothing more than Italian food, especially when it’s gorgeous, authentic and actually cooked in Italy, where it obviously originates from. I’ve developed a taste for Michelin Star restaurants in the past year, too, so whenever it’s a special occasion, my boyfriend Dougie and I are trying to make this our ‘thing’. I didn’t really know that we were making this tradition though, and so the surprise of walking into a restaurant of this caliber with such astounding views of the local area on my 25th birthday was absolutely amazing! Roof Garden added that little extra special something to an already incredible surprise trip to Northern Italy.
