A festive jaunt around Birmingham Botanical Gardens

I'm a proud member of the #BrumBloggers clan and loved the little pre-Christmas meet up we had last week. The Birmingham Botanical Gardens in Edgbaston was the setting for a lovely festive spectacle, with plenty of mulled wine and sausages (waheyy) to keep us warm. I met up with George and Fay, plus the lovely… Continue reading A festive jaunt around Birmingham Botanical Gardens

A weekend of food and fun in Devon

I’ve just spent a lazy, long weekend in the deepest depths of the Devonshire countryside. My lovely friend, Bethan, sorted us out with a gorgeous big house (with an indoor pool no less) to use, and we spent the vast majority of the 3 days napping, eating fattening treats and quaffing copious amounts of Malbec.… Continue reading A weekend of food and fun in Devon

A Vegas wedding and a restorative Greek getaway  

*dusts off laptop*  Well hello there! As you can imagine the last few weeks have been a bit of a blur for me, but I’m pleased to say our wedding in Las Vegas went swimmingly (probably thanks to the endless supply of frozen margaritas) and I’m now officially a wife.
