Another year of my boyfriend buying me flowers that look like they were chosen for my 85-year-old Nan.
Yay – Valentine’s Day returns! ♥️
For all those moany fucks that think it’s a money-making scheme, I mean it is but so what? Valentine’s Day can be whatever you want it to be. And I for one, will be using it as an excuse to get out and about and fill my face.
But this year I will not be joining the crowds in Zizzi or Miller & Carter – oh no! I have found something way more interesting. I mean, I’d love to tell you what I have planned, but if my boyfriend bothers to actually read this blog then the surprise will be ruined!
So, whilst I swear myself to secrecy, here’s my top five picks for things to do this Valentine’s weekend in and around Luton!
I’d been meaning to try the Leaside Hotel’s restauraunt, Brasserie Azure for months ever since my friend made the brunch-time discovery.
Sadly the said friend is currently bed-bound after an operation, so couldn’t join us on this sweet Saturday afternoon. However, being the true friend I am, I did take her a meal from the new Franksters Burger Bar in town, the very same day. What can I say, I’m total friend goals. Ha!
So instead myself and my sister headed off to our enjoy a sisterly lunch, filling our belly’s with cocktails and good food.
It would be criminal of me to launch this blog and not mention one of my most favourite restaurants in the whole of Luton! It had to make the cut.
If you’ve ever followed the path to Luton Station from the back of The Mall, you may have seen an interesting little Arabic restaurant on your way through.
I first discovered Desert’s Rose when my former work team arranged a Christmas meal here back in 2011. I was a little uncultured in food terms back in those days, so I wasn’t sure it was totally my scene but I’m so glad I persevered.
On a more recent visit, I decided to take some photos to share one of my more up-to-date experiences with you guys…
