Unboxing the Bruno Mattress

A few weeks ago, I was invited to try a brand new mattress from Brunosleep.co.uk, a revolutionary mattress brand from Germany. They have just the one mattress design as they believe it’s the perfect one – an ideal balance of ergonomically engineered support foam and sustainable natural latex and we were sent one to review.

A visit to Planet Hollywood London – Review

I was 17 when Planet Hollywood was first launched in New York and remember the fanfare about the restaurant in newspapers and magazines at the time as it was backed by superstars like Sylvester Stallone, Bruce Willis, Arnold Schwarzenegger and Demi Moore. It wasn’t until our first visit to Disneyland Paris in 2003 that we got to see what it was all about, visiting again in 2013.
