An evening under the stars at a gorgeous Elizabethan manor house learning about astronomy, oh go on then…
There’s not many places after school and University where you can go to learn, grow and find your identity.
I don’t know about you but I’m still evolving, I don’t ever think we stop. Weirdly, some people think this stops as we get older? And, there isn’t many spaces to explore your interests or who you are.
I’m so pleased that a new creative space for women has opened in Southsea – I’m so here for this!
It’s called The Liberty Lounge and, using their words, they’ve opened a ‘mind-gym’. I love this concept and can’t wait to see what they do with the space, how they’ll support women and what classes and workshops they’ll hold.
Take a look at The Liberty Lounge…
Looking for those unique travel experiences? Me too! Here’s a goodie that I love and I’ve done on my trips to Cornwall.
Creating beach art was one of the most fulfilling and fun things I’ve done and what makes it even better is that it’s completely sustainable as all you need is a rake, a broom and some string.
I joined Bill at North Cornwall Beach Art for an afternoon experiencing one of the best and most unique experiences you’ll find in Cornwall…
Would you believe me when I say The National Army Museum is like a beautiful art gallery for the Army’s history?
Well, you should. It’s beautiful, well thought through, in the heart of Chelsea a short walk from Sloane Square and it doesn’t cost a penny to go in!
I’ll just say, while I’m probably not the target demographic of the museum, I will definitely be keeping an eye out on its future exhibitions.
At the time of writing this there had just been an exhibition on graphic design and one opened on the day I went called Tribute Ink, based on armed forces tattoos.
What a great discovery!
Make mine a cod and chips please!
ᵃᵈ* How often do you get a whole day to yourself, responsibility free, and getting pampered?
No, I know, not that often, so when they come around you’ve got to make the most of them!
Recently the team at Southampton Harbour Hotel were unbelievably kind and invited me to try out HarSPA, a beautiful zen zone packed full of tranquil treats.
This spa in central Southampton is a real hidden gem in the city. Take a look because everyone needs a little luxe in their life now and then and this might be just the right escape for you, it certainly was for me!
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.
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.
