I have not been at all consistent over on this blog and for that I apologise. I don’t even have a real excuse; I was busy with exams, but they ended a while a go, then I flitted between home and Birmingham for a while with no real purpose, and now I’m back at work. If anything, then, I missed my couple of weeks of free time to get this blog back up and running again. So, we’re starting again now. Happy hump day, I’m going to walk you through some of my goals for this summer, let’s get on…

Last Saturday I was lucky enough to be invited, along with my Grandma, to spend the day in total foodie, crafty heaven at Kirstie Allsopp’s Handmade Fair. The event was held in the beautiful grounds of Ragley Hall in Warwickshire, right by the river, which made for a truly picturesque setting bettered only by the bright sunshine that finally came out as we were eating lunch! Now if you’ve ever read my blog before, you’ll know that I am very into my food and I was not at all disappointed by the options available at The Handmade Fair. So, I’m…

As I mentioned in my previous, 21st Birthday Weekend post, Luke took me to Bath for my birthday.

If you follow me on Twitter, you will already know (because I wouldn’t stop going on about it), but if not, I’ll tell you here: last weekend I celebrated my 21st birthday.  I took advantage of the fact that myself and a lot of my friends were home for Easter and celebrated more than a few times. So, now that I am back at uni and drowning in essays and exam revision, I thought I’d cheer myself up and look back at a fab weekend… I started with drinks and dancing with my friends (how cool are those cocktails at…

Last week I was lucky enough to be invited to attend a tea masterclass at T2 in Milton Keynes. Of course, I said yes straight away to this invite as I was immediately intrigued, I’d never heard of a tea masterclass before and I’m always up for trying something a bit different! T2 seemed like the perfect place to do this, as they offer 151 different flavours of tea that I couldn’t wait to give a try! If you haven’t been to the T2 store in MK yet, go. Even if you don’t like tea. The interior is seriously pretty,…
