Pud Inn Crawl – The Route

23 Jan

Brightening up a dull day with indulgent puddings and baked treats
with a Pud Inn Crawl!

Missie's Pud Inn Crawl Route

Usually held at the Rutland Arms, but on this occasion, we’re going on a Pud Inn Crawl, featuring FOUR SHEFFIELD VENUES, FOUR PUDDINGS and supporting independent eateries sprinkled with 15 equally fun and lovely Sheffield folks.

The Pud Inn Route
The pudding tour route will feature local Sheffield favourites; Eten Cafe, Tamper Coffee Sellers Wheel, Harland Cafe and Amici and Bici. With a special ‘Favourites‘ pud theme, cafes will be sharing some of their favourite, best selling baked treats with diners. Diners can also vote, for fun, their favourite Pudding of the Tour – it’s going to be Forking Marvellous!

The limited number of tickets to attend the event have all been sold but we’re hoping, if this first Pud Inn Crawl turns out well, we’ll probably be planning our next Crawl very soon!

If you don’t have a ticket to join the full tour, you can still join us somewhere along the route – meeting times are above but you will need to buy your desserts separately at each venue.

Looking forward to the sweet weekend with PudInn diners – Cindz x

Merry Everything and Happy 2015

24 Dec

Cindz-xmasI’d feed you some Christmas pudding right now if I could: Let the joyful eats commence!

It’s hard to believe we’re coming to the end of 2014; and what a fulfilling and productive year it’s been too. I can’t say I have had it all mapped out all the time but it’s been a pretty ‘thumbs up’ year! 2013 was a 365 noteful journey and 2014 was a year of figuring out London as a Designer ~ getting myself onto projects out of my comfort zone and working with exciting clients. There’s been plenty of randomness in between, which makes it more enjoyable (of course).

I hope to use some time off for the festive holiday to come back in the New Year with even more colour in what I share, new enthusiasm, fresh creativity and looking forward to new exciting collaborative projects – new projects that will help to build a stronger sense of community. I’d like to curate more events and social meet-ups in 2015 that will create new (sweeter) memories!

In addition, a new personal adventure begins early in the year too…. Las Vegas, we’re coming!! :)

Have an amazing Christmas break everyone, get stuffed and laugh plenty with special people. I’ll see you back here in 2015!

~ Missie Cindz x

Christmas Advent Calendar Week 3

23 Dec

Missie-cindz-advent-calendar-week3-1Missie-cindz-advent-calendar-week3-8 Missie-cindz-advent-calendar-week3-7 Missie-cindz-advent-calendar-week3-6Missie-cindz-advent-calendar-week3-5 Missie-cindz-advent-calendar-week3-4  Missie-cindz-advent-calendar-week2-3

Just incase you thought that my ‘Shop Small Advent Calendar’ had been on the quiet side, I’ve been sharing daily finds via Instagram & Twitter. Today’s blog post is a little update on the third week in the #‎MissiesSocialCalendar (this year’s take on the Advent Calendar)‬.

A quick recap of my new independent finds and buys so far this week:

1. An alternative Christmas lunch // Stick N Sushi, Covent Garden
2. (Best) Mince Pies (in Britain) from Konditor and Cook3. Christmas cocktails and toilet adventures // Sketch Bar
4. Pasta and Pizza date // Princi Italian Bakery
5. Afternoon Tea for a colleague’s birthday // Soho Secret Tea Room
6. Weekend Market exploring stuffing our faces!! // Greenwich Market
7. Mini pancake treats // Planet Pancake
8. Korean/Japanese Street Food // Teriyaki-Ya
9. A not-so-boring wrap // Gourmand Flatbread
10. Beef Tortilla Burger from Tortilla’s Home

The line-up changes daily at Greenwich Market but, particularly on Fridays and Saturdays, you will find a small cluster of street-food stars dishing-up here; you can easily find yourself eating around the world in one indulgent afternoon (we did!). We came here for lunch to treat ourselves and we wasn’t disappointed! Starting from Korean/Japanese street food snacks such as tasty fried chicken, appetising teriyaki salamon bento boxes and veg tempura from Teriyaki-Ya (where you’ll see the chef skinning the fish and cooking it in-front of you); Spanish tortilla filled burgers from Tortilla’s Home; own-made flat bread with a choice of really delicious, good quality toppings from Gourmand Flatbread, and rounding off lunch with a treat (of course) – mini pancakes topped with strawberries and Belgium white chocolate from Planet Pancakes (a great new London find).

It’s not just all about the food at Greenwich Market. There are also plenty of unique, lovely gifts from handcrafted jewellery, arts and craft stalls, bespoke sign makers and clothing. Well worth a mooch.

Everyone going on about how good the cocktails are at Sketch Bar but what about the bathrooms!?!? Went to the loo in an egg with the sound of frogs inside! Never thought I’d say that! ~ it was bonkers! And finally gifts of warm Konditor and Cook mince pies and smiles are surely the basic ingredients of a truly merry Christmas! These literally melted in the mouth and, unlike a lot of mince pies, they are not too sweet or too heavy.

So there you have it, week 3 into my Social Advent Calendar – let’s see what’s in store this final week before Christmas. Let the new (small) finds and eats continue!  Missie Cindz x

Christmas Advent Calendar Challenge

15 Dec

Missie-cindz-advent-calendar-misc-1aMissie-cindz-advent-calendar-misc-2aMissie-cindz-advent-calendar-misc-3Missie-cindz-advent-calendar-misc-1Missie-cindz-advent-calendar-miscMissie-cindz-advent-calendar-misc-4Just incase you thought that my ‘Shop Small Advent Calendar’ had been on the quiet side, I’ve been sharing daily finds via Instagram & Twitter. Today’s blog post is a little update on the first two weeks of the ‪#‎MissiesSocialCalendar‬.

A quick recap of my new finds and buys so far:

1. Bageriet Coffee and swedish bun // Bageriet
2. Coffee Break and reading Caffiene magazine // Curater’s Coffee
3. Missie Cindz Christmas Cards // Missie Cindz
5. Splendid cake break at Princi // Princi
6. Lunching at Scandikitchen and Nordic gifts// Scandikitchen, London
7. Flat white and lunch at the Attendant // The Attendant
8. Cheesecake Brownie // Hummingbird Bakery
9. Fairytale Gourmet Cinderella Chocolate Shoe // Fairytale Gourmet
10. REAL Honey comb // Sheffield Honey C0

One of my favourite things about Christmas are the decorations and gift wrap. This year I’ve decided to make my own gift tags – livening up and personalising my packages with come bakers twine and a doodle – so simple, but effective!

If we purchase from small movers, shakers & makers we are helping to pay their rent, buying them food and making their dreams that much more real. It feels good to contribute in some (small) way to little operation. Plus, it’s satisfying buying and finding cool gifts I wouldn’t usually find on the High ST!

So this week I would love you to support your local gems in time for Christmas. If you have or know of a local product or business I would love to hear about them ~ let’s see what’s in store this week, let the new (small) finds continue!  Missie Cindz x

(Day 10) The Attendant – London

10 Dec

Missie-cindz-advent-calendar-day-10aMissie-cindz-advent-calendar-day-10-1Missie-cindz-advent-calendar-day-10

Coffee is a Language in Itself
Had excellent coffee and toasted banana bread at The Attendant. Recommended if you can face your flat white in a former public toilet! We got super excited when we saw its location: an old public toilet in Fitzrovia area ~ one of the most charming in London.

Going down the stairs you will find this whimsical and tiny café where you could sit at the bars around the room or at the big table at the bottom of the corridor. The decorations here are totally unique, rescuing items from the old location, i.e. the toilette basin, hand dryer and flusher – there are details in white decorated china and other unexpected elements which adds charm to the venue. The offer in terms of food and drinks is very simple and straight to the point: cakes, open sandwiches and other small snacks can be seen and chosen at the counter.

With super friendly staff and an experience to boot, it’s a place definitively worth attending and showing off to your friends ~ one of my favourite new coffee shop finds in London now!

The Attendant / Downstairs, 27a Foley Street, London W1W 6DY
