Last Saturday we decided to do something impromptu and go on a road trip. We ended up in the charming little seaside town of Whitstable. Known for its fresh and tasty shellfish, Whitstable has an array of restaurants that line the beaches. We parked up just outside of the main town high street and made our way through the charming streets to Tankerton Beach. The high street was full of amazing antique stores so it took a little longer than we originally thought to reach the sea front. It wouldn’t be a trip to the seaside without a relax on… View Post

Last weekend Tom and I had no plans, which is rather a rare occurrence for us. We took full advantage of this and decided to enjoy a leisurely brunch.

I had been hearing good things about Honest Burgers new brunch menu so I was excited to check it out.

I’m not saying that this will solve all issues but, it certainly helps me see things a little clearer. If you’ve been hiding under a rock or too busy to look at your social media for the last couple of days, you may not know that the… View Post

Naturally when I book a city break I research so I can put a little tick list together of all the sights we must see. I didn’t know the weather in Amsterdam could be so temperamental until I was speaking to a friend who had recently been, we soon discovered the weather was just about as reliable as in the UK! So over our 5 day trip I had a varied list of things to do… Vondelpark I had heard this was Amsterdam’s equivalent to Central Park so it was definitely on my list. We made the most of one… View Post
