Finding something new, interesting and incredibly delicious to eat or drink is probably one of the most satisfying and invigorating things ever! Here are our latest 5 foodie finds we’ve got our teeth into recently.

Mr and Mrs Romance - Five Foodie Finds You might be surprised to know that I don’t have a particularly sweet tooth. That doesn’t mean I don’t like sweets or chocolate. I’ll still eat a whole block of Lindt if it’s put in front of me.

But in a restaurant, I’m the one going for the cheese plate rather than the cheese cake… or another main if I think no one’s watching!

Mrs Romance, on the other hand, is a sugar fiend. She loves the dessert menu and often goes there straight away before choosing her entrée… but after ordering her drink, of course!

With this in mind, you’ll see that Mrs R had much more influence over the choice of this issue of 5 Five Foodie Finds. Nonetheless, they’re all great, and we’re excited about adding these to our food and drink repertoire:

Do you ever wonder what bloggers did before they were bloggers? Mrs Romance worked in corporate before she started Hair Romance, and before that she worked in interior design.

As for me, I was an English teacher, and a freelance journo and copywriter. I no longer teach, but I just can’t seem to get the pen out of my hand.

Mr & Mrs Romance - blogging I’ve learnt a lot since starting Mr & Mrs Romance just over 18 months ago. Before that, I’d kind of blogged vicariously through Mrs Romance’s site Hair Romance, but I still came to Mr & Mrs with a lot of pre-conceived ideas about it and how it’s done.

I suppose you never really know something until you do it.

In my freelance capacity, I’m over on The Copy Collective’s blog, The Word, sharing some of the things I wish I’d known before I started blogging:

I suppose you never really know something until you do it.

Can you add anything to this list? What do you wish you’d known before you started blogging? Do you have any questions you’d like answering before you start your first blog? Say it in the comments!

Our Instagram Diary – chocolate-making, cocktail-drinking and celebrity-meeting

Mr & Mrs Romance - Insta diary - 1 Sydney sky

Mrs Romance has just asked me what my favourite line from a movie is. I couldn’t really think of one at first but she’s clearly been thinking about this for a while. Hers is: “so shines a good deed in a weary world.” Pretty cool. It’s from Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory – the original [...]

Friday Drinks: Eau de Vie Apothecary

Mr & Mrs Romance - Friday Drinks - 1 Eau de Vie Apothecary Title
