Later added edit: this experience was the one of the best experiences of my life. I have always had an interest in wildlife and conservation, but this really sparked my interest in Lions and protecting them. I have since been researching and even though I did love it with greater knowledge, I wouldn’t advice walking or petting lions and I… Read more →
We have had a beautiful first week in South Africa, the second isn’t looking so fabulous with rain forecast for the rest of the week. Seems I have brought the rain along with me here as I am seeing the sunshine updates in the UK, just my luck! We went with Luke’s mum to visit the Voortrekker Monument situated in the Pretoria… Read more →
Howzit! (That’s what the saffas say). I am currently in sunny South Africa enjoying some well needed vitamin D – look how translucent we are! I am married to a Saffa and 5 years together and 1 Eva, amazingly I have never travelled here before. We are staying with Luke’s family for the 2 weeks that we are here and… Read more →
As I said before I wanted to include more travel and lifestyle on my blog. The perfect opportunity came up when Hertz got in touch and asked me to put together a post of my favourite home city places. I moved to a tiny village in-between London and Guildford a couple of years ago. Although it has some lovely hot-spots, not… Read more →
Thought I would share a few snaps taken on the weekend. Luke had some free cinema tickets for Free Birds in Brighton on Sunday morning. So we thought we would make a day of it. It was Eva’s first time watching a 3D movie too. Read more
I am now going to be extending my blog into other areas of interest, not just fashion. Although fashion is my biggest hobby so I suspect it will still be the vast majority of posts. I want to include more leisure, lifestyle, beauty and photography types of content. First up a hotel stay in one of the Menzies 15 hotels – the Flickwick Manor Woburn near Milton Keynes.Read more
I have been a very, very bad blogger. Someone give me a virtual spanking! I have missed it like crazy though. Eva has been keeping me busy like I said in the previous post during the summer holidays. Sticking her in front of the TV doesn’t work anymore like it used to. She wants to be entertained and sitting in front of my laptop trying to get stuff done just does not happen. How people have more than one, I will never know!
Last Thursday I went to Wales to support my blogger pal Dawn on her Boutique opening. I will be posting about that tomorrow. Also I have never been to Wales in my life before (or Ireland or Scotland) so I took this as an opportunity to cross the bridge.
I love nature and being outdoors – although nature doesn’t love me with my atrocious hay fever this year. I decided to look on the interweb for pretty nature spots in Surrey. I don’t know how I came across it, but about 40 minutes from where I live there is this pond with a sandy bank in Frensham Common.
I called up my little sister Lottie and asked if she would like to come over with her Basset Hound Barney for a little afternoon out. I let Eva’s nursery know she wasn’t coming in and off we went. Please note this is not a style post…I look like the dogs dinner
I have been putting off posting these. I could barely bring myself to look at them while sitting here shivering and chattering my teeth! Remind me again why I live in this country?! I posted the Bohemian Style outfit post earlier this week, so you may know that I recently returned home from a weeks holiday in Fuerteventura. It might look like I only wore the below Jarlo dress the whole holiday, but its because most of the photos I took were on the same day.
Last week Luke and I went on a 5 day trip to New York, it was the first time we had both been, but thankfully we have friends that live there who gave us a a little tour. Read more →
