THE FLOUR POT

After a very busy Easter weekend, we spent the morning recharging at The Flour Pot in the Brighton Laines… It had been a hectic few days, spent road-tripping in Northern France with friends, so a casual morning in Brighton was the perfect antidote to our champagne chugging antics from the past 48 hours. The sun…

DUCK & WAFFLE, LONDON

This past weekend I was in London visiting a few friends, so not ones to completely relax at the weekend, we rose early to make our 8.30am reservation with the clouds… Duck and Waffle sits 40 floors up with panoramic view over London town and the best thing – it’s open 24 hours. This was…

GETTING LOST IN THE SOUKS

The Souks were my favourite part of the trip… A bustling, hot, colourful maze of a market, winding and stretching into the depths of the city. Stalls upon stalls selling everything and anything you can imagine. Each passageway different than the last – the deeper you went, the more you discovered. I wanted to haggle…

LA MAMOUNIA

Our second day in Marrakech was a little less chaotic…  We left the comfort of our small Riad for the Luxury of La Mamounia.  Only a short cab ride away from the square we arrived to spend the day doing as little as possible and exploring what this legendary hotel had to offer. For once…

ARRIVING IN MARRAKECH

Marrakech has always been a place firmly at the top of my travel bucket list… The city intrigued me, not at least the country as a whole. I was drawn to visiting through stories of it’s crazy streets, vibrant colours and the promise of getting lost, deep in the heart of The Souks. After searching…

CORNISH ADVENTURES

In the short time we stayed in Cornwall we managed to rack up quite a few miles on the clock, by just driving where the road took us… We had a few places in mind for the trip, one being Port Isaac (where Doc Martin is filmed) and the other, Padstow, for Rick Steins famous…

HOT TUBS AND BEACH WALKS @ THE SCARLET

As I mentioned before, the main reason we wanted to visit Cornwall this time of year, was to feel like we had it all to ourselves – and we struck gold…  Not long after we arrived, we bundled up in our waterproofs and wellies, and headed down from the hotel to the huge empty beach…

BREAKFAST IN BED @ THE SCARLET

A few weekends ago Si and I took the journey down to Cornwall for a long weekend on the gloomy but picturesque coast…  It was our full intention to go off season, as I couldn’t imagine anything more beautiful than the grey skies, quiet roads and having the empty beaches to ourselves! We stayed at…

12 HOURS IN PARIS

Last month I spent a whirlwind day in Paris with two of my close friends, who all thought that Paris really was a good way to start the year…  It was an early start but after a hot drink and a thorough catch up on the Eurostar, we found ourselves walking the calm, quiet streets…

MARMALADE

I am always the one to suggest new ideas, so although Si didn’t have a lot of choice (he, he), our new year’s resolution has been to go on a coffee date once a week, ideally taking it in turns to choose a place…  In Brighton we are spoilt for choice, so I am making…

30 HOURS IN PARIS

Paris is always a good idea (they say)… and I agree! we have been a few times before, but I just can’t kick that feeling that Paris gives me, so back in September we decided to jump on the Eurostar for a quick trip across the channel. No time off work, no flights, just a…

SUN & SAND

Just a couple of snaps from our day at the beach at the weekend. It’s one of those days that i’ve been meaning to do for so long…  so after our morning road trip along the coast we arrived at sunny Camber for a long morning of sleeping under the parasol, dips in the sea…
