Historical Places in Essex For Families

February 14, 2020

I know what you’re thinking. Essex? History? The land of skycraper heels, sequins and “proper diamond geezers”. Am I insinuating that we actually have some history in Essex? That we do indeed have a bit more than Sugar Hut and blowdry bars? Well actually, yes! Yes I am. The County of Essex, here in the South East of England, might surprise you what we have…

The burgeoning list can be added to from all manor of places. A late night conversation with friends. A photo on Pinterest. A magazine or brochure.

Protecting Wildlife – How World Animal Protection are Helping

February 8, 2020

Imagine seeing brown bears in the wild. A Mother with her cubs, teaching them to fish for salmon in the streams. Think how you would feel to see the slow and steady walk of a herd of elephants. Magnificent bull elephants leading their herd, mothers gently tending their young. Tigers living freely, being the incredible animal they are. Well sadly, these things are steadily becoming…

4 Days in Budapest

February 4, 2020

There is something special about being on the streets of a city before it wakes. The street lights cast their glow onto pavements. The trees are heavy with birds starting their slow song to welcome the day. There is a stillness, a calmness. I love the laziness of that pre-dawn time. It is special. A privilege to be a part of. So, during our 4…

January for me, is usually full of excitement. I adore New Years day and feel a giddiness at how amazing the year ahead is going to pan out. To be fair, I am that girl that literally feels like every Monday is the start of the best week ever. You can only imagine my excitement on the 1st January! However, this year was different. I…

Vegan Afternoon Tea – Dalloway Terrace

January 23, 2020

Afternoon tea. That quintessentially British tradition that makes us feel fancy. There is something special about getting dressed up a little, heading to a beautiful venue and feeling indulgent for the afternoon. I never struggled to find an afternoon tea when I was vegetarian, it is very well catered for. But, since becoming vegan 18 months ago, finding a good vegan afternoon tea proved a…

I was so pleased when I received a 100%, resounding YES when I posed the question on Instagram to see if you would be interested. This is a series with no judgement, no…

A Hever Castle Stay – A Kent Staycation

January 13, 2020

There is something special about a castle isnt there. The history wrapped up within its walls. The stories woven amongst its rooms. The past residents that have called it home. Well, when I saw that a Hever Castle stay was possible, I knew it was the perfect staycation for us! Our dreams of being a, (albeit temporary) resident of the castle could be realised. If…

Wagamama Vegan Menu – Options Galore!

January 9, 2020

There are some things in life that are a right of passage. Things like your first smooch. Passing your driving test. Holidays with the girls (or boys). All these things are as much a part of the journey through life as breathing. There is another thing that has been added to this list in recent years. Eating at Wagamama’s. It seems, you cannot really say…
