SHAKE IT OFF!

To celebrate one of our favourite days of the year, NATIONAL CHOCOLATE MILKSHAKE DAY, we have done some research into the best places to get some of that chocolate goodness. Prepare yourself for some mouth-watering “freakshakes”… Is it cheat-day yet?

Here are our top 5 places to go if you want the ultimate chocolate milkshake:

Maxwell’s Bar & Grill

Known as “Freakshakes”, Maxwell’s Bar & Grill in Covent Garden create incredible looking milkshakes, making it a top choice for most Instagram-worthy shakes. They even have Unicorn inspired shakes! Off we go…

Miki’s Paradise

This place really is our idea of paradise… This creperie, milkshake and juice bar in Holloway Road is a pro at the dessert game

Waffle Paradise

Another paradise that has stolen our hearts… and stomachs! Shake, cookies, doughnuts and brownies all in one dessert- perfect for those who can never decide what they want.

Soft Serve Society

Look at that chocolate stacked goodness! Soft Serve Society is definitely serving society something great here.

New Territories

We may have saved the best until last here… Look at that masterpiece- it’s almost too good to eat/drink. It’s even worth the long-haul flight over to NYC to get one of these signature milkshakes from the New Territories dessert shop!

Will you be visiting any of these spots on National Chocolate Milkshake Day?

4 Reasons Why Birthday Girl Bey Will Always Be Our QUEEN!

To celebrate the birthday of one of our all-time favourite gals, we’re going through just a few of the reasons why Beyonce is forever giving us #lifegoals making her our QUEEN!

1. She gave us the ultimate single girl anthem with ‘Single Ladies’. Providing all single gals a moment to shine at any party as we go into full Beyoncé mode and perform the routine we spent weeks memorising.

2. Even on days when we’re not feeling so good, she inspires us to shrug our shoulders and say ‘I woke up like this’ and ‘we flawless’. So we’re totally saying this:

Even though we really feeling this:

3. She made us proud to be ‘too bootylicios for you, babe’. Another classic song that ensures our presence on the dancefloor. ‘Can you handle this?’

4. And she makes dancing and performing in heels look easier than breathing… whilst maintaining a pitch-perfect voice. We stare in awe!

All hail Queen BEY! Happy Birthday Beyoncé!

Calories Don’t Count on Mondays

We’re officially announcing that Monday will now be known as Treat Day Monday! We’re sick of the way Monday treats us; coming round once a week, just as we’re settling into the weekend and stamping on our happiness. To make the day a tad more bearable it will now be an excuse for all the chocolate and cheese you can eat, calories will be non-existent and the gym *shudders at the thought* will be the furthest thing from your mind. Here are our top insta worthy treats that will definitely get you on board the Treat Day Monday train:

Melted Cheese is an MUST. The stringy-er, the better! This unicorn grilled cheese from the Chomp Eatery is the prettiest cheese we’ve ever seen.

Another obvious cheesy choice is Pizza. And Mac and Cheese. Why not go the extra mile and get both together?

If you have a sweet tooth, perhaps you would prefer a Nutella cookie type pizza?

And how about adding ice cream to the mix? And some donuts because… why not, calories don’t count on Mondays!

And make sure to wash it all down with an ice cream/milkshake/waffle combo.

What is your treat day essential?

Love Island 2017- Most “Muggy” Moments

As Love Island approaches the end, and the sun sets in this year’s villa we thought we’d reminisce on some of our highlights and most muggy moments from the Class of 2017. We’re definitely not feeling “mugged off” about it ending, and we’re definitely not sad that we have to wait an entire year before it returns. Really, we’re not bothered. TOTALLY “NOT BOTHERED”. Except… we had put “all our eggs in this year’s basket” and it was “100% our type on paper”. Here are our highlights:

 

  1. Marcel from Blazin’ Squad

In the earlier weeks of Love Island it seemed to be a game of who will Marcel tell that he used to be in “THE SQUAD” on that episode.  Some of his fellow contestants were left in shock… and some shockingly didn’t even know who Blazin’ Squad were? Nevertheless, it was the shortest secret ever.

 

 

  1. Stormzy ruining Olivia and Chris’ relationship

After a challenge in the villa saw this tweet from Stormzy revealed, it caused one of them nightly, explosive arguments between Chris and Olivia. Chris couldn’t hide the smirk on his face as his future rap career looked closer than ever whilst Olivia was fuming! It was hilarious.

 

 

 

  1. ‘Muggy Mike’

 When late arrival Mike entered the villa and started “grafting” Olivia he caused an enemy in Chris. So what was Chris’ mature response to the new boy picking his girl? Naming him ‘Muggy Mike’ – of course! The name stuck, even when he returned to the villa, and Love Island’s Mike will forever be known as ‘Muggy Mike’.

 

  1. Jason ‘Staythumb’

 Our biggest #LOL moment of the season goes to Chris who misspelt Jason Statham as Jason ‘Staythumb’. This inspired many hilarious memes and tweets on social media.

 

 

 

  1. Theo

Theo’s stay in the villa was short, sweet and VERY ENTERTAINING. He caused trouble the entire time he was there and we were gutted when his fellow housemates booted him out. Our favourite moment was when he asked a distraught Tyla why she didn’t leave the villa if she was so sad about her love-interest Jonny leaving. #AWKS (He had a point, though!)

 

 

 

  1. Cash Hughes

During our favourite challenge of the season we got to see how each couple would handle parenthood, as they were given a fake baby for the day. It seems that Chris forgot his baby was made of plastic when he began crying over his bond with his new son: ‘Cash Hughes’. Chris takes SPF VERY SERIOUSLY and was livid that the other parents were exposing their children to the Spanish sun without sun cream or a protective hat. It made our hearts flutter and our love for Chris grow as we all imagined him as our baby daddy…

 

 

 

  1. Montana & Food

 Fans on social media were quick to jump on to the fact that Montana always seems to be eating during tense times in the villa. Cereal, carrots and cookies are just some of the foods that can be found in Montana’s hand when an argument or a serious conversation breaks out on the island. WE CAN TOTALLY RELATE, MON!

 

 

 

  1. A Little Bit Leave It

 Eurovision 2018 watch out- we’re onto a winner! During a dull moment in the villa, Blazin’ Squad’s Marcel and Kem decided to pass time by writing a rap track titled ‘A Little Bit Leave It’ about their time in the villa. It wasn’t long before Chris caught wind and decided he needed to get in on the action and the other guys reluctantly allowed him a small role in the intro. They performed ‘A Little Bit Leave It’ to the rest of villa and it was incredibly well received (cringe-ing aside). I’m sure Love Island fan Stormzy is one of the many artists lining up to be a feature on Marcel, Kem and Chris’ inevitable forthcoming rap album!

 

 

  1. Garlicio

The nation face-palmed in unison when Chris ventured out of the villa on the hunt for some tasty ingredients (including Pokemon biscuits) for a meal he was cooking for his housemates. Unfortunately his foreign language skills aren’t on par with his parenting skills, and he left Spanish locals and viewers stunned when he attempted to ask for garlic from a Spanish shopkeeper. Not knowing the Spanish name for garlic, he just added an ‘io’ on the end, forming ‘garlico’ and said it with enough conviction that even we believed him.

 

  1. Kem and Chris’ Bromance

 As the season approaches the end, it’s time for us to decide who our favourite couple is. When we thought about the couple who formed an unbreakable bond, showed affection throughout the serious, argued the least and confessed their love for each other the most, there was only one pair that came to mind: Kem and Chris.

 

 

It’s bad enough on a Saturday when we don’t have a daily dose of new actions from the villa, now we can only wonder what we will do with our lives after Love Island…
