Last Saturday we went into London as we had a nice little weekend planned and a night booked at The East London Hotel in Bethnal Green.  The second time me and Gavin ever met was in May 2016 at Slam Dunk Festival whilst The Story So Far (a pop punk band from California) were performing, and so their songs kind of became ‘our songs’. Listening to them reminds me of that time when he kept talking to me in this noisy room at the festival and I couldn’t hear a word he was saying but I wanted to seem cool…

Earlier this month I went on a little girly trip away with blogger pals Terri and Charl to the wonderful city of Prague. Our other bloggy friend Tereza is Czech and when she moved back home last year after living in the UK for a few years we always promised we’d go to the Czech Republic to visit her!

Originally we booked a…

I was recently invited to stay at Chicheley Hall, a gorgeous Grade I listed English country house just outside of Milton Keynes.

Bedroom After checking in at reception we went to find our room, the Cartwright suite, which is part of the original Grade I listed part of the house. The suite is a stunning large room with solid…

Last month we went out for Gavin’s birthday dinner to a pub fairly local to us but one that we’d not been to before. The Wheatsheaf in Bow Brickhill is just outside of Milton Keynes and is part of the Heroic Pubs group who also run the Knife and Cleaver in Houghton Conquest, Bedfordshire. The pub underwent a substantial refurbishment last year and I was excited to visit after hearing so much about it! Although it looks like a cute little village pub from the outside, inside is actually a sleek and modern interior with an open kitchen and stylish…
