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. It’s the kind of place you can go for a nice day out as there’s plenty of good restaurants to enjoy, things to see,…

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!

Going out for a tasty afternoon tea in a cute little tea room or glamorous hotel is one of my favourite pastimes. But most places charge at least £20 each (or in excess of £30 each in London!), so it can add up to be a slightly expensive experience. However I am a big fan of throwing my own afternoon tea parties at home. Any excuse for a tea party and I’m on it; baby shower, birthday celebration, a girlie catch…
