We have just got back from the most fabulous trip to Hungary and Slovenia and I can’t wait to start sharing the highlights!
One of my favourite evenings in Budapest was the one we spent in one of the ruin bars in the old Jewish district on the Pest side of the river. Continue reading
If you ever wanted to know what it feels like to be in a potions class at Hogwarts, then you need to head to The Cauldron.
It’s a pretty magical experience. Continue reading
If you’re not sure that you want to go out and buy gifts for everyone this year, why not make them instead?
Something homemade is perfect to give to a host of a party, have your children make for friends or their teacher, or even to give to everyone in your family on the big day. And after all, who doesn’t love a gift they can eat?
Is there anything better than afternoon tea?
Unlimited sandwiches, sweet treats and cups of tea is a joyful experience in itself, but having it with a Christmas theme goes another step further. Continue reading
Welcome to my fifth and final gift guide and I think I might have saved the best until last!
I’ve already shared my gift guides for people who love hosting parties, for those looking to make some eco-friendly changes in their lives, for those who love to cook or experiment in the kitchen and for those who love to travel. So if you haven’t seen those, and think they might be perfect for someone you know, then click on the links to take a look!
As I said in my last guide, for me, Christmas is not about the gifts. However, sometimes you do want to get somebody a special something, or perhaps you need to (like for Secret Santa or a December birthday), so I thought I would put together some little lists for inspiration. I find other people’s lists and recommendations so useful and even if I don’t purchase anything from them, they often give me an idea for something I hadn’t thought of before. Continue reading
I love spending time in London during the festive period.
The city goes all out for Christmas and we’ve been visiting every year since we were kids. We’ve had so many fun memories over the years, so I thought I’d share a few of my favourite things to do. It’s likely that most of these are things you can do in every city in England, but London just has the biggest variety! Continue reading
Ah, Amsterdam, you beautiful city.
I hope you all enjoyed part one of the Amsterdam Edit and all the fun and food it had to offer! If that wasn’t enough then fear not, there is always more, and here I am as promised with part two… Continue reading
Gifting season will soon be upon us so I thought I would try my hand at ‘gift guiding’! For me, Christmas is not about the gifts and I honestly love baking gifts for people instead. However, sometimes you do want to get somebody a special something, or perhaps you need to (like for Secret Santa or a December birthday), so I thought I would put together some little lists for inspiration.
I find other people’s lists and recommendations so useful (I’ve already bought two gifts I found on one..) and even if I don’t purchase anything from them, they often give me an idea for something I hadn’t thought of before (or to search for a different style or more affordable option). I will be sharing five guides in total for food and travel and they will be a mix of things that I love and recommend, things I’ve purchased for others (I obviously can’t say what), or things that are actually on my wish list!

Sadly, this is my last Cornish post, but it’s a good one!
We spent the day visiting 3 different towns and villages on the south Cornish coast; eating, drinking and exploring every little nook. The lovely thing about the little villages in Cornwall, are their endless winding lanes filled with pubs, tea shops, ice cream, fish & chips, and interesting boutiques. Continue reading
Copacabaña Lodge is located in a valley up from Marcará, in the small town of Copa Grandé, under the gaze of the snow capped Cordillera Blanca mountains.
When you’ve visited a city a few times, you accumulate favourite places that you just can’t wait to go back to every time you return.
For me this is Bistrot Victoires in Paris.
Wicks is an English pub in the heart of Lima brewing and serving up traditional British style beers and pub grub, and it truly makes me feel like I’m back at home.
