Last weekend we decided to make the most of the gorgeous autumnal day and took a little day trip to St Albans, which is about a 45 minute drive from Milton Keynes. St Albans is a small English Cathedral city in Hertfordshire with a nice high street full of upmarket shops and restaurants plus some beautiful parklands.

I know, I know.. I’m late with my Instagram round up post again! Sometimes I just cannot keep up with blogging at the same time as normal life. I feel like I at least have an excuse this month as I went away on a girly blogger trip to Prague at the beginning of September so I’ve been a little busy. More about that coming soon!
