A Fashionable Afternoon Tea – Pret A Portea at The Berkeley

December 19, 2018

I think for those of you that know me, the words afternoon tea and Kerry go together like egg and chips, beans on toast, Brad and Jen (ok that last one is just my wish, I have never quite got over the golden couple splitting) I just blinking well love getting a little dressed up, and going to a beautiful venue to eat posh sandwhiches…

A Winter Wonderland Afternoon Tea – Essex

December 6, 2018

Walking in through the double wooden doors, not knowing what was beyond them, felt like walking into Narnia. I was instantly transported back to childhood when I spent days with my nose in the Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe book, longing to join the Pevensie children on their adventures. As the doors swung open into the tearoom, we were greeted by twinkling candlelight, falling…

Palm Oil. Its become the big no-go ingredient for those of us concerned about the ethics behind the brands we use. I do however, understand that for some people, they have no real idea what it is, or how it impacts so greatly on this little planet of ours.I think being a fan of travel has made me even more passionate to do my bit…

Your guide to Prague in the Autumn – The Practical Stuff

November 27, 2018

I had wanted to visit Prague in forever. I longed to explore the city in the colder months, as I always saw photos of Prague with a thin blanket of snow, people wrapped up warm and cosy against the weather, sipping warming mulled wine. Those visuals gave me all the hygge feels. I wanted to carry on our exploration of the European cities we had…
