The Wedding Edit: Our Cotswolds Minimoon!

After our wedding day, we took a little time out for a minimoon in the Cotswolds. I spoke about this in my last post, but I’m so glad we did the minimoon thing, rather than going on our honeymoon straight away. After the wedding, we just wanted to spend time together and enjoy being husband […]

Hints of Spring & Becoming A member of the National Trust

Happy Sunday!! I haven’t posted on here for a whiiiiiiiile. I blame it on wedding planning & honeymoon dreaming. Honestly, every weekend these pass few months has been meeting with suppliers / designing table signs / and writing endless to-do lists!

Photography Journal: The North York Moors

A few months ago, we spent a lovely wintery weekend around the North York Moors…. and I completely forgot about the photos that I took! Most of the moors are quite flat, and so as someone who loves a good hike up a mountain, it wasn’t my favourite national park the U.K. has to offer. […]

The Little Acre Kitchen: My New Favourite Lunch Spot

I LOVE food. One of the main reasons that I exercise regularly is that I could never diet. Life’s too short. Now, when it come to eating OUT, I can be a bit of a fuss-pot. I hate paying for food that I could make better myself. Because of this, I’m constantly on the look […]

The Little Things: A Much Needed Dose of Vitamin Sea

I’ve said it so many times before, but I’m happiest by the sea (or a turquoise blue alpine lake…. i’m not fussy). Theres just something about the sea that I find incredibly calming. I always come away feeling as though my mind has been de-cluttered and re-booted! Whenever we have time, we love going to […]

The little things: Spring has Sprung! (…finally!)

One of the best things about living in England is the seasons. I feel like wheneverย we step into a new one, everyone gets so excited! (myself included). We’ve had the odd day that has felt like spring, only for temperatures to plummet again! This last week, however, has been absolutely glorious! More sunshine, lighter evenings […]

Spending A Wintery Day in the Lake District

For a little getaway between Christmas and the New Year, we popped up to the Lake District for some fresh country air. We stayed in a lovely little Inn just outside of the national park, called The Inn at Brough, and spent a beautiful wintery day driving around the lakes from Ullswater, to Derwentwater, to […]

Happy Halloween! (Now can we get excited for Christmas?!)

Happy Halloween! When I was little, we didn’t really make a huge deal out of Halloween (other than watching Hocus Pocus – one of my favourite films of all time), but thanks to my American brother-in-law it’s now an annual event for our family. We get together, carve pumpkins, and my sister makes us a […]

Hello Autumn

It’s officially Autumn here in England! I love this time of year.ย There’s a chill in the air meaning we can break out the chunky knits (yay!), but the blanket of orange leavesย evokes such warm, cozy feelings. It also means that Christmas is just around the corner, which can only be a good thing. Today was […]
