As if the almost 32,000 steps wasn't enough on the day before, our last day in New York was more walking. I honestly wouldn't do it differently! That said, maybe we'll experience the train system or a ride in a yellow cab one day but walking around such an amazing city is great ... there's … Continue reading New York City 2018 – Final Day

Not that we are gin drinkers … Continue reading Bombay Sapphire Gin Distillery
In June, I will have been married for 16, yes 16 years yet I remember the planning like it was yesterday! Deciding on the date, the ceremony venue, the reception venue, the menu, the disco, the DJ, the dress, hair, makeup, bridesmaids, cars...the list was endless! The Church wedding and hotel reception were fantastic and … Continue reading The Barn at Avington
After seeing a post on Caroline Hirons Instagram about #getlippy and The Eve Appeal, I had to find out more.

We were extremely grateful for a slightly later lay-in on day 3. An early flight on day 1 from the UK through to a late Northern Lights night followed by the Golden Circle tour and Blue Lagoon trip on day 2...we needed sleep!
