My Favourite Places – Korinna Howie
Big instagram influencer, eco-stylist and all round cool lady Korinna Howie aka @isthistooyoungforme tells Muddy about her favourite haunts across the county.
Korinna Howie makes you smile. Her instagram posts are always a bit self-depraciting, witty and relaxed. She has that rare gift that the best influencers have of making you feel she’s your mate, and a fun one at that. Her instagram @isthistooyoungforme offers eco-conscious, cruelty free styling tips but without hammering all the joy out of shopping. With her quirky and open attitude, it’s no surprise she has an army of followers. Muddy Norfolk gets the lowdown on Korinna’s top spots.
I love good quality perfectly-made coffee, and independent Kofra Coffee hits the spot. They grind top quality beans and they know how to brew them. I pop in most days for a takeaway morning fix when I’m passing with my dogs. Kofra is also on Muddy’s top 40 National Coffee Roasters.
KOFRA, 16 Onley Street Norwich
I love Haggle in St Benedicts in Norwich. The Turkish small plates and home made breads. The relaxed atmosphere and creative texture-filled interior. Eating halloumi at the bar downstairs, followed by some cocktails with my girlfriends is just the best. At the weekends they have a DJ playing chilled club classics. After Covid I’ll be first in the queue to get back up on that bar stool!

BAR BLUE JOANNA
Great atmosphere, with live music at the weekends. Sometimes it’s a regular on the piano singing Bill Withers. Others it’s owner Ecky with his band thrashing out The Jam. You never know what you’re going to get. It’s a true gem of a bar.

WALK WINTERTON BEACH
Right now it’s Winterton beach to look at the seals. I love to see them playing in the sea and lazing around on the sand. We’re so lucky to have them visit us.
SPA / TREATMENT The Doctor’s Laser Clinic
I love The Doctor’s Laser Clinic, in Poringland where I go for ‘baby botox’ occasionally. Botox isn’t for everyone, but if you’re going to ‘dabble in the dark arts’, we nee to make sure we go to a totally professional clinic who listen to our needs. I see Joolia, and she gives me what I want… a totally natural look.
