It seems a little early to me, but Spring seems to have sprung in England!
This time next week, I will be basking in the glory of the English sunshine and I cannot wait.
There’s just something about the British summer that gives me all the joy. Plus, I’m managing to squeeze in the end of spring to my trip so all the spring flowers will still be in bloom. Happiness! Continue reading
I’ve been having a crazy month of Harry Potter bookings, so I’ve been totally in the wizarding mood to write this post this week. I’ve managed to get tickets for ‘Harry Potter and the Cursed Child’ in London next year, booked into the Harry Potter WB studio tour (again….see my original visit here) to catch up on the new additions and to see it all decked out for Christmas in December, and managed to get tickets for the ‘A History of Magic’ exhibit at the British Library that’s on from now until the end of February. This all makes me so happy.
Another fabulous Harry Potter style trip you can make in London is to the House of MinaLima. Miraphora Mina and Eduardo Lima are the graphic design duo MinaLima, and they are the brains and talent behind all the graphic art elements of the ‘Harry Potter’ films and the spin-off film ‘Fantastic Beasts (And Where to Find Them)’.

Festive party season is upon us and everyone is searching for that perfect place for their work/friends Christmas dinner. If you fancy something a little different then booking a Peruvian fusion Christmas menu could be just what you need.
At first glance they may not seem Christmassy in a traditional British sense of the word but by using a combination of great British and Peruvian ingredients they truly make a feast. And after all, isn’t that what food at Christmas is all about? Sharing it family style and feasting to celebrate the wintertime. It all sounds delicious to me.
Peruvian food is also a fab option if you have a vegetarian in your party as the cuisine has so many options to choose from. Gluten free diets are also catered to as well!
I’ve not tried any of these specific menus (they are just suggestions for you), but I have chosen restaurants that I have actually visited over the last few years, so that I know how great the quality and ambience is!
So, without further ado let me give you some feasting contenders….
This is a list of my recommendations of some of the best things to try in Cambridge.
Cambridge is my home-sweet-home, and I honestly have been thoroughly spoilt by the fact that I have grown up in this extraordinarily beautiful and picturesque city. I took it for granted until I went to University and then realised what a gem I had been living in. I highly recommend you visit, even if just for the day; it is so worth it to take the trip up from London. There is actually so much to see and do here, and you will find yourself enamoured with it.
Friends and family have also given me their best bits and I have taken all of this information and compiled a list. Think of it as a reference page, that will grow over time (as I find more and more to do…and eat), to give you an idea of where to start if you want to take a trip to one of the most beautiful cities in Great Britain.
