Last night was too much fun but if only you’d have skipped the after party…
It always seems like a good idea until you wake up with the ceiling spinning, blistered feet and an intense craving for anything greasy and beige.
Do yourself a favour, put down last night’s take-out and combat the beer fear with our post cocktail remedies;
We all love a good canapé after a prosecco or two, right?
You can’t go wrong with the classics. Anything wrapped in pastry is always a winner, but realistically who’s going to prepare and bake dozens of mini sausage rolls by hand when you can grab them from the supermarket?
For eye-catching party pick-ups that are simple yet effective follow our fuss free guide, so you can spend more time perfecting your look for the night. Winning.

Ever heard the phrases ‘emotional eating’ or ‘hangry’? There’s no denying that we all have a relationship with the food we eat, but is there such a thing iRL as a ‘happy meal’?
Brunch – a late morning meal eaten instead of breakfast and lunch
Brunch is an essential part of life. It gives you a fashionable excuse for being too lazy to meet for 9am breakfast dates. Everyone loves brunch. Brunch is bae. But most importantly, brunch is an essential Instagram opportunity. Nobody’s feed is complete without weekly pictures of your hungover Sunday brunch adventures. Everything about brunch is perfect – well maybe not the prices…
But fear not, we’ve gathered a list of the best, cheapest and most ‘grammable places around.

Pancake Day is here – but you can forget staying at home with sieves and self-raising flour ‘cos this year’s offering is flippin’ great. From pancake freakshakes to stacks topped with gooey mac ‘n’ cheese, DesignMyNight have rounded up their favourite places for pancakes on Shrove Tuesday.
They say New York is the city that never sleeps and while I agree, I also found it’s the city of AMAZING eats!
The minute the flights were booked, my IG feed was soon inundated with NYC eateries that piled on the calories just looking at the photos. I thought I loved food before I went to New York but I didn’t quite realise just how much until my trip to the Big Apple.
Here are my top 5 must-have munches…

Today marks the annual National Pizza Day, a day to celebrate all things doughy, cheesy and tomatoey. Whether it’s stuffed crust, thin and crispy or a deep pan that you prefer, there’s nothing better than sinking your teeth into a slice of pizza. With that in mind, we’ve pulled together a couple of pizza facts to get you in the mood for a meat feast or two later on.
This month, I decided to jump on the vegetable bandwagon and do #Veganuary.
Having heard a lot about the demons of dairy, I took the plunge – mainly for health reasons (and to try and lose a few of those Christmas Camembert pounds, too)
With that said, I headed to the shops on the 2nd January (New Years Day was a write-off given a killer hangover that could only be cured by cheese) to stock up on soy milk, quinoa and chickpeas.
I took the ‘fail to prepare, prepare to fail’ mantra in my stride and over the course of the month made a quinoa salad, ratatouille, a spinach and chickpea curry, a kale and tofu stir fry and possibly the tastiest mousakka I’ve ever eaten.
The biggest hurdle was definitely eating out. I’ve never been a fussy eater, so having to be that person and awkwardly tweak a menu took some getting used to. Skipping the poached eggs at brunch with avocado and toast and swerving the halloumi in a veggie burrito was tough. So tough.
I became a pro at reading labels and when in doubt, Google always had my back.

We love drooling over food porn on IG at any time of the year, but the festive grub and glasses of booze on our goods are literally taking us to heaven right now. Warning: be prepared for an ultimate food coma.
