Corfe Castle

A few weeks ago my fella 'N' and I set off on a little trip to Dorset to get out of the city and breathe some fresh air. With our National Trust passes at the ready, a tent in the boot and a vague plan we set off!

N has a fascination with castles so first stop for us was Corfe Castle. We parked the car and winded out way through the wood, up and down and over rivers until we emerged with a view of what once would have been a spectacularly regal home.

Borough Market Haul

So, a haul post. I kind of always assumed I wouldn't do one of these but after such a successful day in borough market a few days ago with my Dad I couldn't help myself! So here it goes, my Borough Market haul...

I Amsterdam

In the Autumn of last year my sister and I had a few days free so we decided to head to the Netherlands to see what Amsterdam had to offer. Turns out it's a lot.

We landed early in the morning and set off to our beautiful hotel, Hotel V Frederiksplein, to dump our bags and head out to explore. We found a little cafe called 'De Bakkerswinkel (insert childish chuckle here) and stopped for chai teas and a HUGE slice of the most delicious appeltaart.

Thank You Summer

Right. October. Where did you come from? Summer seems like such a long time ago but London has given us a few gorgeous days recently which got me thinking about the last few brilliant months. So here’s a little round up of the best bits (in no particular order):

Harry Potter Studios
I was given two tickets as an 18th birthday present from my brother which for some bizarre reason I hadn’t used yet so dates were booked, movies were watched and books were re-read and we were off. The fella and I are both total HP geeks so we were in our element! I was going to write a blog post about it but I just don’t want to ruin the excitement for anyone who’s not been yet. I will say however that we were there for nearly five hours and every single second was fantastic! (Fan girl rant over.)
