Restaurant Review | Sosharu

As a huge Jason Atherton fan I was eager to tick Sosharu of the bucket list - and so glad to say it did not disappoint! Whilst a little off the beaten track out by Farringdon, there's' some great bars nearby to grab a drink before hand. I headed to Oriole, an absolute winner from the guys who setup Nightjar. Their innovation is out of this world, and this speakeasy was the perfect way to start the evening. But now for the real deal -- from the service, to the incredibly Japanese electronic toilets (you'll be tempted to spend a fair share of your dining time down in the loos!!) there really was nothing to fault about this place, but head there for a special treat, it's worth it.

Travel To | Marrakech

My first trip to Marrakech was a surprise for my mums 50th Birthday back in 2014, and has become an annual ritual to return ever since. For me, Marrakech is a city that has it all: weather; culture; food; shopping and beautiful hotels. It's a city of two halves, one being the hustle and bustle of the city centre (The Medina), and the other being outside the city walls.

Top 5 | Things I Learnt Running My First Ultra-marathon

Back in February you might remember my bonkers decision to sign up to run the Race to the Stones in July (a 100km run in one day in the heat of the summer) what could be more fun eh? Once this had all sunk in I realised I needed to up the training game, this led to me entering the Dukeries 40 mile Ultra. With it not being too far from home and a supposedly "good first ultra' I thought it would be a good starting point for my first ultra marathon (any distance greater than a 26.2 mile marathon). Needless to say - it was the toughest feat I've ever endured. However, I couldn't have been happier to find out I completed it in 6hrs 29 mins, and was the 4th female home - and 1st in my age group!
