Review: Exeter’s Bill’s

After hearing about Bill’s renovation, Naomi and I were absolutely desperate to see how they could possibly improve their chic, colourful look and the delights of their buttermilk chicken burger and American-style pancakes! Upon arrival, our attention was immediately drawn to the beautiful flower feature wall just outside the doors – the perfect location for an aesthetic Instagram photoshoot of which we made full use.

Met Gala Theme Explained

I can’t have been the only one who opened up Instagram on Tuesday morning and thought, “What in God’s name is everyone wearing?!” If you’re confused about this year’s Met Gala theme, then you’re certainly not alone!
