Fusion's Zara Stone went to a monster truck show, a totally new experience for the British expat since such shows don't exist in the UK. She found that her preconceived notions about Americans were right, well sort of.

So, if you want to work in social media you're going to need to get good at Instagram and Vine. This is what Indeed.com have found through crawling through their job database. You could also do a masters degree in social media, but do you want to? http://blogs.wsj.com/digits/2013/07/29/social-media-schooling-is-on-the-rise-but-is-it-necessary/

The reviews - and cover image - had me enticed, the reality was far stranger and more wonderful than planned. To start with, I walked past by mistake, as the place is the definition of hole in the wall, but it was 100% worth retracing. The owner welcomed us in flamboyantly, seating us at a small table with a penis ring toss and - trying not to give anything away - made us feel VERY welcome. The cocktails have names like "Fuckmosa" (really strong) and mine was delicious, a blend of far too much alcohol, but oh so flavorful. The food was tasty, and the options enormous -- well, as a vegetarian, where I'm used to one or two items. I had the Korean BBQ and I think I finally get why people rave about it, and my partners pancakes were creamy and tart. The menu apparently changes regularly, but the food I had was great, and the ambience divine. Enjoy (but don't tell everyone)!

This studio offers a challenging workout, but one that makes you feel like a rockstar. I discovered this through ClassPass and was a little wary that it would be filled with Lululemon cliches, but instead I found a warm welcoming space and an instructor who was very particular about making sure students were cared for. I appreciate her clearly asking about injuries every session (something a lot of places skimp on) and adjusting the exercises accordingly. The studio "vertical method" involves using bungee cords and your own body as a weight, and elongating and stretching your muscles. A great amount of attention is paid to your spinal alignment, and you really do leave feeling like you're an inch taller. This helps a lot with my bad posture (sloucher/typer) and it also makes me sweat (bonus). BONUS: They have free hairbands for you to tie your hair up, and free bottled water to drink. They now also offer barre here too, but I haven't tried that yet.

The host asked where we wanted to be seated and when I replied, "Wherever was prettiest", she smiled and lead us upstairs. Away from the tumult of the long bar and the bright lights downstairs, upstairs was cosy and spacious, red lights hung from the ceiling and stars glimmered on the wall. The menu was easy Mexican, a nice selection of fajita's, guac and burrito options and I liked the free salsa and chips that came with our meal. Service was prompt and friendly and the portions were large; enough that we left clutching our stomachs and cursing our appetite. Prices were low and they also offer deals and discounts on certain days/times of the week. Nice for a quick cheap n'easy Mexican, not so good if you're trying to be romantic.

This place will make you sweat, your legs burn and your arms tremble. It's a little terrifying the first time, but if you want to sculpt your body, this is the real deal. The place is incredibly friendly and the small size means lots of personal attention; important when you're shaking kettle bells around. I liked how they made adjustments for my lower back issues too. Be prepared to ache the next day, and to be challenged. This is where I go when I want to push myself, a little too intense for everyday but great overall.

Tasty quick food in a pleasant faux French setting. I stopped in quickly for a alternative to Starbucks and was pleasantly surprised. They have a coffee bar, a soup bar, a salad bar and a pasta bar and they have each item labelled for calorie content. It's a little confusing at first, as the menu feels big and they have a cafeteria tray system so you're a little rushed to read it. I like the roomy restaurant - at 2pm they had lots of tables; and $6 for a latte and a potato pastry is cheaper than Starbucks. Three stars as not exceptional but a good easy place for a bite.

When the wait staff describes themselves as "Your wench for the night," in a faux English accent you know it will either be a wonderful or terrible evening. John Strongbow's is aiming to be medieval madness in Alexandria, which fir pretty well considering the quaint old streets and feel of the place. They offer a full menu and a selection of drinks which include a large selection of English beers (at full markup) and a tasty mead selection. Ambience is casual chic, with flags on the walls and the staff wearing period dress; bodices and doublets. Prices are reasonable and it's always easy to get a table. Makes a nice change to the standard wine bar of the area, and they also hold interactive jousting events upstairs on the weekends (haven't tried that yet). A friendly local pub with the added benefit of accents gives this four stars.
