Cabana Brazilian street food!  

On Tuesday 21st of February, me alongside the Southampton bloggers were invited to the new Cabana restaurant in Watermark Southampton. Cabana is a twist on Brazilian street food from all over the country, 


It was a really special evening, meeting the owners and the creative team, who really made the night. 

We started with a cocktail master class, where we got the chance to have a go at making a traditional Brazilian cocktail. They first of all showed us how to make the perfect one and then we all had a go to see who was the best mixologist! 




I’ll tell you now, cocktail making is harder than you may think! (Especially the shaking part!) 

I loved that the staff that helped us were so enthusiastic and really gave us an experience! They helped us and laughed and really made it a lot of fun! 

The cocktail was actually really tasty and they were even generous to give the best cocktail a £10 voucher! 

We then moved back over to try some of the amazing food! 


The owners sat down with us to enjoy the food and explained everything that we were eating. They explained where the food was from, what it was and the Brazilian style of food and eating! They were so helpful and informative and it just made the night X100 better! It was so nice to experience food that is authentic and not justify mass produced! They have put so much effort into creating the perfect Brazilian restaurant that really is one of a kind! 

The food was just amazing! I have never been a massive fan of spicy food but in all honesty I loved everything I tried! The food may have been spicy but the flavour was so amazing the spice only added to the great taste! 

I have to say this restaurant has now become one of my favourites, I cannot wait to head back and try even more of the food. They gave us a wonderful golden bag full of some of the sauces to we can make some of the food along with a recipe book! I’m very excited to give it ago myself but I doubt it will be as good as that food I tried! 

I cannot recommend this place more! The thought and effort along with the amazing food could not be more perfect and I would 100% say to check it out! So if you are near any of these fabulous Cabana restaurant go on in and I guarantee you will have just a brilliant night as we did! 

Thank you so much Cabana for a great and memorable evening! 

Billy Elliot! @Mayflower Southampton 


Yay! Billy Elliot! Go Billy go! 

I have wanted to see this musical forever! As you know by now I am a massive musical geek, I just can’t get enough! I’ve been in them, gone to see them and now I’m writing about them!

Billy Elliot has been one of my must see’s for a long time and I finally had the chance to go with the Southampton Bloggers! 

 After seeing the film when I was younger I was so excited to see the way they expressed this on stage! (Which was spot on by the way) 


Omg omg omg is all I can say right now! I saw the show last night and I cannot get out of my head how amazing it was! 

This has got to be one of the best shows I have seen, for me it is now one of my favourites! I cannot stress how much you should see this show if  you can, it was incredible! 

Let’s start with the song and dance numbers…


The songs are still in my head! They were really fun and thy created this amazing atmosphere with the ensemble. 

As a lot of the cast were young I was so impressed with the way they could move and their pure talent on stage! From young to old on that stage last night was perfection! They way they created transitions on stage from scenes and songs was honestly beautiful! One of my favourite moment was the grandmas song about her husband. As she sung there was a group of male dancers that moved across the stage from one side to the other. The moments they created were stunning and created this real moment on the stage. Truly stunning. 


Now time for the real talent! This young lad who played Billy last night was breathtaking! The talent of this young lad was astonishing I honestly couldn’t believe it! It was only his third venue and I could not believe my eyes! Seriously watch out for this one as that is a talent that is going so many places! 

Not only was he adorable when we acted but the skill of his dancing was gorgeous! He really showed off his skills in a wonderful scene where him and his older self danced together, it gave my goose bumps and I 100% cried! ( as I did through  most of the show!) 

They danced together in such sync it really seemed like the same person! The skill and practice they had put into this beautiful scene was so beautiful! 

All I can say is I wish I was a ballet dancer and I’m 100% signing up my future kids for lessons! 

The thing about this show is that it really strikes a cord with the audience! I laughed and cried and didn’t want the how to end! If you ask me 3 hours was not long enough! The show rounded up with a standing ovation from the audience, which was the least they deserved! I just wish I had roses to throw! I will be thinking about this show for a long time! 

There was really something for everyone in this show! The crude nature and comedy was something I loved and they had the perfect amount! 

I cannot praise this show enough! The cast and crew should be immensely proud as they created somethin truly magical I cannot wait to watch again! 

Go and see this if you can! I had such an amazing time thank you so much to the Mayflower Southampton!
