Afternoon Tea at Stapleford Park

"There are few hours in life more agreeable than the hour dedicated to the ceremony known as afternoon tea"

After a wonderful weekend celebrating our 21st surrounded by our friends and family, Molly and I extended our celebrations with an afternoon tea for two at Stapleford Park. We received a voucher from our close family friends, and thought we may as well use it whilst we are both still at home.

Glamping in Norfolk

Although jet setting to new countries is always exciting and something I love to do, sometimes there is nothing better than a trip exploring your own country. The UK has so much to offer, with such a diversity of places to visit, from city breaks to sea-side stays, you are never short of places to explore or return to.

With this in mind, I booked a mid-week stay to Norfolk for James' birthday.

James had mentioned once or twice how he fancied going camping again, so I met him in the middle and booked us in to a Shepherd's Hut for a spot of glamping at Woodstock Farm.

Sometime I Feel Like I'm in Barcelona

"Friends are like stars, you don't always have to see them, but you know they are always there"

With the steady descent into full blown adulthood in full swing, it is such a blessing to be able to meet up with old friends and reminisce about old times and share in new ones. 

With that in mind, I joined a few of my old school friends for a mid-week trip to Barcelona.

Marrakech Part Three // Moroccan Adventure

Our time in Marrakech was quickly coming to an end. With just one full day left, we set out to explore a few of the tourist sites we hadn't yet seen.

First up was the Ben Youssef Madrasa, an ancient Islamic college which was founded in the 14th century, and re-opened as a historical site in 1982.

Essaouira // Moroccan Adventures

Following our successful first trip of the holiday to the Ouzoud Falls, Emma and I decided to spend a day exploring Essouria. For any Game of Thrones fans, this is the location used for 'Slavers Bay', which was a very exciting concept for the both of us, as HUGE GoT fans!

We set out in our mini bus, stopping off to take some snaps of goats in trees (?!).

August Wish List

August is upon us, and what a glorious month. Mainly because myself and my twin sister turn 21 this month, a mile stone birthday! As the last month of summer, August is all about squeezing out the most of the sunshine.
