Edinburgh & The Castle on the Hill

After our trip to Alnwick, Ryan and I continued our road trip up to Scotland and our next destination – Edinburgh. We spent 1 and a half days in the city and another at Edinburgh Zoo (post on that to follow!). I got very excited when I saw the “border crossing” layby and insisted we pull over to take some photos. There’s also a layby the other side for those travelling into England. It took around 1 and a half hours from Alnwick to Edinburgh along a beautiful coastal route. I tried to take some photos from the car but Read More…

Halloween tag

Happy Halloween! Tonight I’m donning some Ghostbusters pyjama bottoms, watching some Halloween themed films with my family (and likely some horror films too). I’m hoping we’ll see some trick or treaters as well. If you didn’t know by now Halloween is my favourite holiday, seconded by Christmas. When we were little my sister and I went trick or treating around our village with the other children there and a few chaperones. I think that’s where my love of Halloween and fancy dress began; my parents got very into it, carving pumpkins, decorating the house and playing some tricks on us. Read More…

Alnwick Castle and Gardens

Ryan and I have just gotten home from our road trip through part of England and Scotland. It was a long drive but I’m happy we did it instead of using public transport, we came across some picturesque towns and villages. Our holiday started with a 6 and a half hour drive up the Fosseway, an old Roman road connecting Exeter to Lincoln . According to our Google Map route we drove 14 hours and 40 minutes on our way up to Scotland! Alnmouth – seaviews and a haunted hotel Our first destination was the small seaside village of Alnmouth, Read More…

Relax and Unwind: Adult colouring ft Lady Lucas

I love to relax and unwind with an adult colouring book or by doing some oragami. I find both very theraputic and with the clocks going back, the nights are getting longer and days shorter. I enjoy cosy nights in this time of year so will be doing a lot more indoor activities like these. Not only are they relaxing and theraputic, I also get to be creative. 🎨 So when Ashley of Lady Lucas contacted me to review some of her colouring pages, I couldn’t say no! Especially to her cute Halloween designs. 👻🎃💛 Cute characters colouring book This Read More…

Breakfast at The Gateway, South Cerney

On one of our recent shopping trips together, my dad and I stopped in The Gateway at South Cerney for breakfast. Neither of us had been there before but decided to try it out and hoped it would become another of our regular breakfast stops. Spoiler – it has. 😀 The Gateway is situated by one of the many lakes at South Cerney watermark, which I previously mentioned when Ryan and I went paddle boarding earlier this year. It’s a short walk from their in fact and the Costwold Outdoor is opposite, there’s an abundance of free parking and is Read More…

Halloween decorations for every budget

Halloween is on its way! 🎃💛 Which, if you didn’t know already, is my favourite holiday. I love when the shops start putting their Halloween ranges out! Even more so if they do it before putting out their Christmas ranges. 😉 Haha. We always decorate the house for Halloween, ever since my sister and I were children. We had both indoor and outdoor decorations, a carved pumpkin (of course) and I’ve kept up the tradition since moving out 5 years ago. Here are a few of the Halloween items I’ve found that I’m loving this year. I’ve tried to include Read More…
