Need a good independent coffee shop in Bristol?
📌 Pin this one for later.
Society Cafe, this is an absolutely cracking independent cafe right in the heart of the city. It’s right on the corner of Farrs Lane, opposite the canal where you walk on real cobble streets – it is beautiful, the food is great, and I just totally love it.

There’s nothing like having dinner watching a storm from the inside of a cosy beach side restaurant.
When we said we’re going to Jersey, everyone who had been said to head up Five Mile Road towards St. Ouen’s Bay to visit El Tico.
It’s right on the beach and the restaurant is a great all rounder and popular choice with locals and tourists.

Jersey’s restaurant scene is thriving and a heavy weight punching well above its size is Locke’s Coffee and Grub.
This glass fronted ex-record shop is now an awesome restaurant with a friendly team, incredible coffee and awesome food.
A trip to Jersey isn’t complete if you’ve not visited, and it easily shot to the top of my favourite restaurants on the island.

Jersey is blessed to have a thriving foodie scene and Nude Food stands out as the top healthy, clean eating choice on the island.
I totally fell in love with the healthy food, the gorgeous cafes and seriously good coffee, it quickly became my go to place throughout the whole of the trip.
There’s branches called Nude Town in St. Helier and Nude Beach in St Aubin (I know, I giggled too, good to know someone has a sense of humour!).
If you’re in Jersey this is a great cafe that needs to be on your radar.

The Great Hall in Winchester is home to one of the greatest symbols of medieval mythology…King Arthur’s Round Table!
Surrounded by the remains of Winchester Castle, built by William the Conquerer no less, it is an iconic piece of the city that’s tucked away at the top of the high street.
It’s definitely another tick off the bucket list for me and I am so glad I found it, I’m not a big history buff but, King Arthur’s table is seriously impressive!

Travel, exploring and discovering something completely new comes in so many different forms. You don’t have to go far to find a little bit of everyday magic.
A garden that comes to life in the depths of winter is something really special. The winter garden at Mottisfont in Romsey was full of bright, colourful plants that could brighten up even the dullest day!
Getting some fresh air, stretching my legs and admiring the beautiful plants in bloom was a great way to brighten up January.
Take a look…

There’s nothing quite like catching the last of the Christmas feels just before Twelfth Night!
Just because the festivities are over doesn’t mean you have to be done with all those gorgeous decorations and twinkly lights.
I’m loving making the most of my National Trust membership and ticking some local travel hotspots off my bucket list!
Take a look around the gorgeous estate at Mottisfont in Romsey. It embraced a Flower Fairy theme to celebrate Christmas and bring a touch of the beautiful gardens and a bit of fairy magic to the inside of the house.

It had been a long time since I’d visited Kew Gardens and I had certainly never been to on if its ‘after dark’ events.
American artist Dale Chihuly created some beautiful glass sculptures influenced by flora and fauna which was a natural fit for the Royal Botanic Gardens in London.
This magical exhibition cleverly used colour, light and music to bring a magnificent artistic twist to the landscape while giving exclusive access to the gardens after hours.
I tried my best to capture these stunning installations, take a look…
