If you want seafood straight from the sea or vegetables straight from the field to your plate, then you need to head to Faulkner Fisheries in Jersey.
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!
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…
You can travel the world but some of the most awesome adventures really are right on your doorstep.
I joined the Pagans, Wiccans and Druids, for the magic of Winter Solstice, and it was the perfect end to 2018 and a way to totally re-energise for 2019.
Heading to Stonehenge in Salisbury for the solstice celebrations, made me feel spiritual, present and connected.
In many ways this experience helped me in ways I can’t ever thank it for. Yes, it sounds totally hippy but, it really healed some wounds and besides that, it was a truly incredible experience.
If you’re looking for epic experiences in the UK, this has to be on your list.
Take a look at my trip in 2018…
Well, well, well Gunwharf Quays is pulling it out of the bag this winter and we’re only in November.
Last night I caught the first public showing of the new Light Show Spectacular at the outlet shopping centre in Portsmouth and I’m so glad I did!
Pull on a cosy coat, grab family and friends and go and see this great free show that’s going to spark the start of those festive feelings.
Here’s a slice of the magic to give you a sneak peek…
AD | David Michaels’ Australian burger and chicken joint has hit English shores and found its way out of the big smoke to my corner of Hampshire, Southampton.
And, aren’t I glad it has! I love a BIG eat, especially a good burger.
Take a look at the mini burger revolution…
THIS. This is how you do doughnuts and coffee. Unique sweet treats, super strength caffeine and a beautiful aesthetic. Hideout Coffee Company has it all.
The doughnuts are out of this world. Go now and go early, they sell out so quickly so, do not go unprepared!
I visited after it had been open for six days, and it’s been selling out every single day. For a very good reason too, those doughnuts are AMAZING.
And yes, they are ‘The Finest Coffee Perverts’ in Portsmouth!
Going out for breakfast is such a treat and when we were in Polzeath we found a fab spot to start our day right.
It’s always hard in a new place to know where to try as it’s always a bit of a gamble.
Thankfully we landed on our feet when we strolled into the Tubestation in Polzeath – it was a blinking marvellous find. And, as I later found out, it was voted Red Bull’s ‘number 1 best surf café’ in UK and Ireland.
Oh hi 6am, I love seeing you after less than four hours sleep! 😂😂😂
Despite the total lack of sleep, and three long drives the day before, the lure of Record Store Day 2019 [RSD] was one I couldn’t resist.
This year Henry (the better, more numerically minded, other half) and I headed to his home town of Manningtree to an amazing independent record shop called Winyl.
Come and take a look around this absolute gem of a record store and the limited edition records we managed to buy.
[AD] Well check me out living my best Carrie Bradshaw life with cute take out noodle boxes at the launch of Ned’s Noodle Bar!
Recently nominated for ‘best noodles in the UK’ at the UK’s Golden Chopsticks Awards Ned’s is bringing its twist on Chinese, Japanese, Thai, Korean, Malaysian and Vietnamese flavours to central Southampton.
