Give an hour – save a life

For the life of me I couldn’t figure out why Belfast’s City Hall was lit a blood read colour last night.   It turns out there is a massive blood drive on today at City Hall and if you’ve never given before now is the time. All you need to do is lie down for…

A Night At The National

There’s nothing like an original invitation to an event and this one certainly caught my eye when it arrived on my desk last week.   Nothing says party like a crate full of hay! Still I couldn’t help being intrigued as to what Belfast’s newest night spot so I toddled along on Saturday night. Just…

You may have seen in Mace in Belfast and other shops that American sweeties and cereals are starting to appear in dribs and drabs. If you’re a fan of American candy though you’ll be delighted at this new arrival in Castle Court, Royal Avenue, Belfast.   This shop does exactly what it says on the…

The fashion…

Carlsberg Don’t Do Sleepovers…

But if they did they would be hosted by the Malone Lodge Hotel in Belfast. The hotel asked the #FABB bloggers along to try out their new facilities. It wasn’t a bad evening by half… On arrival we were greeted by the hotel’s fabulous staff and shown to our rooms          …
