Introduction
Karen is Journalist/Blogger at heart and in 2008 she started what has become an extremely popular blog and along with it a Twitter account that has snowballed in the time that is has been running.

She's a big fan of Twitter, Facebook and other social media sites, she is always keeping in touch with fans and replying to their tweets etc.

Journalism has become a way of life for her and over the years she's developed her own unique style when it comes to her movie reviews etc, with an honest, no nonsense style that readers have come to appreciated.

Moving in to the world of entertainment via journalism has been a big leap and has given her opportunities to work some amazing people at events and concerts such as Brian Blessed, Frazer Hines, Thomas Nicholas, the band Wheatus and many more.



Bragging rights
Won the prestigious National UK Blog Award for her work in events in April 2015. Thomas Nicholas (Kevin From American Pie) did a twitter takeover with my twitter account!

Although the diner is on the grounds of the airport, many wouldn't think that it is open to the public, but it is, don't be put off that you have to go through the security gates to get to the diner, it's all worth it in the end, the staff are very polite, the Chocks Away Diner is clean, bright and cheerful and as you have read above the food is delicious. With the food being prepared in the kitchens and only using fresh ingredients, Chocks Away is a must visit and I personally will recommend a visit.

One of my favourite Indian restaurants, the meals are always delicious and the staff are very helpful when it comes to help with what meals they would recommend, they will even remove ingredients or add extra to any dish you order, so that your meal is suited for your needs.

One thing that first comes across with the Relax Coffee Lounge is the friendly staff, which in my humble point of view is something that is lacking in a lot of places these days. The many coffees are made with love and taste fantastic, the food is also really nice. The Relax Coffee Lounge is a joy to visit and is ideal for meeting friends and enjoying a delicious coffee and more.

Euphoria are superb, I use them as my personal stylists before any events that I cover, they are extremely friendly and very helpful when it comes to styling, the shop is small but extremely up to date with all the mod-cons that a good Hair Stylists would have. Top marks from me and very highly recommended.
