A Lavender Massage

30 July 2017

A few months ago I booked to have a massage…in a lavender field! It sounded amazing and I was so excited in the months leading up to it.  After a couple of months of looking at the photos on their Instagram account, the day finally came.  I was looking forward to it immensely and having seen on the website that it would run regardless of the weather, I was very relieved to see that it was nice weather on the…

Codebreaking at Bletchley Park

11 June 2017

Bletchley Park has been on my list to visit for a few years now after watching ‘The Imitation Game’. So when deciding how to spend our Bank Holiday Monday, Anthony and I decided we would finally make the drive up to Milton Keynes and tick it off the list. We checked the website beforehand and noticed that they were running a ‘Past, Present, Future Cryptography Day’ for the Bank Holiday covering the various settings on the Enigma machine as well…

You Say You Want a Revolution?

12 February 2017

My brother, his girlfriend and I had planned a day together in London last weekend and after hearing great things about the 1960s exhibition at the Victoria & Albert museum, we decided to book tickets (plus it’s a great excuse to wander around one of my favourite areas – Kensington!). As you walk into the V&A from the main entrance off from Cromwell Road, you walk underneath a huge glass dome which would be impressive enough for most museums, but…

Twinings

22 January 2017

A New Year is the perfect time to reflect and make small changes to help maintain a healthy lifestyle. It is always good to get back in to the routines lost over the festive period, particularly after a few too many indulgences.] Not only is January the perfect time to get fit and eat more healthily, it is also a good excuse to think about your mental health, ensuring that you take time to relax. I am very hard working…

The Nutcracker

15 January 2017

The Nutcracker is the perfect Christmas performance, and it managed to continue that festive spirit through to early January – a much needed pick me up for anyone returning to work with the Christmas blues. I have always gone to the theatre with my mum to see shows but it wasn’t until last Summer that I saw my first ballet performance, which is strange considering that I loved ballet as a child and attended ballet classes from the age of…

Georgian House Museum & Cabot Tower

13 November 2016

Whilst walking around Bristol on a recent weekend visit, we came across the Georgian House Museum. As soon as I read the sign, I knew straight away that I would love it so we stepped in to explore. The museum is free to enter, although they accept donations so we put some money in to contribute to the upkeep. The museum is set in the former home of a Bristolian sugar plantation owner and is decorated as it would have…

Estee Lauder – Sumptuous Knockout Mascara Review

22 October 2016

I have always been a huge fan of Estee Lauder make up so when I saw that they had a new mascara out, I had to try it. I popped into a Boots store, conveniently timed with their ‘Gift for You’ promotion, to treat myself to the new mascara as well as my trusty Double Wear foundation, and got a goody bag of gifts to take away. I wish all shopping trips resulted in extra gifts. I have always used Estee Lauder…

The Hayloft

29 August 2016

I don’t feel like I have seen much of England at all as I have always gone on holidays abroad, and so with a few days off work, Anthony and I decided to do something a bit different and go on a mini break in this country. We rented a cottage for a week in Brittany last year and absolutely loved it so we decided to do something similar again and rent a cottage so that we could cook our…

Ballet & Brunch

21 August 2016

Mum and I treated ourselves to a girly day in London last month and it was perfect! We started off with brunch at The Ivy Market Grill in Covent Garden, it was such lovely weather and we were lucky enough to be given a table outside which looked on to the main square – perfect for people watching! The food was amazing. We had olives and truffle arincini as a starter. The olives were the biggest olives I had ever…
