My favourite Wetherspoons Wetherspoons, kettle mag
Who isn’t partial to a cheeky ‘Spoons? It suits all occasions- meeting up with friends and family, your mate’s birthday pre drinks, or any pre drinks, a decent, cheap breakfast. Craft beer and ale, cheap pitchers of cocktails and wine, and endless amounts of deals (you cannot beat a Thursday curry club night!) the list...
Review: I Sea Pasta IMG_4583.JPG
Italian food and seafood are two of the best types of foods to exist. So when offered the opportunity to sample I sea pasta by Seamore, I had to get involved and see what this is about. The packaging advises preparation in three ways: Boil for 15-20 minutes (the safest option I decided to take)...
Review: Corkcicle Tumbler corkcicle.3.jpg
I’m a huge fan of hot drinks, especially when the weather’s cold. When I came across the Corkcicle Tumblr from Root 7 available for sampling, I had to try it (I’ve got a bit of a Tupperware/ flask addiction). It claims to keep drinks hot for 3 hours and chilled for up to 9 hours....
Politics – should it be a compulsory subject at school?

Finding the balance between a fun and safe night drinking
Students live in a very drink heavy society.  There is Freshers at the beginning of the year, special occasions, celebrations for the end of exams, birthdays and then just the weekend.  We also struggle to know our limits and wake up in the morning slightly more nauseated and a banging head desperate for a glass...

Grab your onesie and warmest blanket- Winter is coming. That is exciting news for students, especially for those living away from home over the Christmas Holidays.  Whilst it means presents, money and quality time from parents, grandparents and aunts and uncles you rarely see it also means one thing- food. And drink. And lots of...
Think you’re sorry? Think again… Sorry or not sorry, kettle mag, chloe sayers
Sorry. A common term in today’s society which barely has a meaning anymore. It used to be what you would say when you had made a genuine mistake.  As humans, these days we are just wired to say it. If somebody knocks into you in a bar and spills your drink and you automatically reply:...
