Review: Dinner at Côte Brasserie, Maidstone

Review: Dinner at Côte Brasserie, Maidstone

On winter nights like these, there’s often nothing I want to do more than sit somewhere cosy and eat some delicious, comforting food. I was recently invited to Côte Brasserie in Maidstone and asked my husband to come with me for a rare child-free evening out (thanks Mum and Dad!) There is something romantic and a little luxurious about French cuisine, perfect for a cold evening. It provided me the opportunity to dress up, although it certainly isn’t a necessity! Fortunately, given the heels I’d chosen, it was only a 5 minute walk from the three nearest car parks. Stepping inside, I was excited to see what Côte Brasserie would be like as I’d never been to any of the restaurants in the chain before. View Post

An Arriva adventure to Kent Life

An Arriva adventure to Kent Life

Catching the bus is a daily experience, usually taking people from A-B for work or school. How often do we think outside the box and go for a day out on one, though? Last weekend we decided to do just that and go for an adventure on Arriva’s 155 Chatham to Maidstone bus. We took Autumn to Kent Life, as she absolutely adores animals and we knew she’d have lots of fun! View Post

A bouncy blow dry at Rush Hair, Maidstone

As a busy mum, my hair often doesn’t look its best. It gets dried as quickly as possible and if I’m lucky, I’ll find 5 minutes or so to style it. I was recently invited to Rush Hair at their new Maidstone salon in Week Street for a blow dry. Not only was I looking forward to leaving the salon with beautiful hair, I was also looking forward to having some ‘me time’! So, how did it all go? View Post
