Summer Holiday Essentials

I feel like I'm currently the only person in the UK who hasn't gone on holiday yet! So this post might be a little late for most of you this year, but I still have another 2 weeks to wait until my holiday. I'm off to Rhodes at the beginning of next month and I cannot wait! I'm so excited to finally get some consistent warm weather, and I'm really looking forward to chilling out by the pool with a nice frozen strawberry daiquiri!

Top 5 Best Places for Afternoon Tea

If going for afternoon tea can be classed as a hobby, then it is definitely my favourite one! I like to go for afternoon tea every so often, and I just love trying out new places and comparing the menus. This last week has been 'Afternoon Tea Week' (14th - 20th August 2017) so I thought I'd do a post dedicated to my top 5 favourite places to go for afternoon tea!

Fine Dining at Broadway Casino 'The Restaurant' in Birmingham

I was recently invited along to try out the new summer menu from The Restaurant at Broadway Casino in Birmingham. I went along with other bloggers Terri, Tereza, and Charl so we had a nice girlie catch up! The Restaurant is a fine dining Italian restaurant that is situated inside the casino itself, and just a few steps away from the games area. 

Broadway Casino is located inside the Broadway Plaza complex which also includes a cinema, bowling, and a few fast food/high street chain eateries. It's a great entertainment venue, but I found it was quite quiet on our visit. This is possibly just because it's slightly outside of the city centre itself, but there is a free secure car park available, or is a short taxi ride away from New Street.

A Country Wedding at Milling Barn, Hertfordshire

A few weeks ago in July I was invited to the beautiful wedding of Gavin's best friend, where he was best man. It was held in a a wonderful 17th Century oak barn called Milling Barn in Hertfordshire and it was the most amazing day! The traditional venue had been beautifully decorated with neutral colours which suited the barn perfectly. It had high ceilings and exposed beams which gave it a rustic touch, and was ever so romantic!
