Italian cuisine is my weakness. Pizza, pasta, Aperol Spritz… I don’t think there is any dish or beverage I don’t like. Italy has become my favourite place to visit and let’s not forget to mention my love for Italian leather handbags. So when the team at Zizzi in Cheltenham got in touch and asked if I would like to check out their beautiful newly refurbished restaurant and menu, I took the opportunity to turn it into the perfect date night to spend with my love after a busy week at work.
I’ve been thinking a lot lately about change. Perhaps the hot weather has got to me and I’m over-thinking things, but I do believe change can be good. Taking a leap of faith can be daunting but maybe it’s the best thing you can do for yourself. You can spend a long time thinking about it yet it never feels quite right, but let me tell you why now is the perfect time…
As someone who has a passion for photography I’m forever searching for new ways to capture and share memories offline. Not stored on my phone or on my camera, but printed for friends and family to see. With so many photos from our recent trip to New York and little time to do much with them, Dan and I opted for a photo book. I’m excited to share why creating memories with Bonusprint is my new obsession and why you should try it too…
Hello! I’m back where I belong – on the blog and creating content again.
The last few months of my life have been an adventure. The best few months of my life, in fact. After unintentionally taking some time out to immerse myself in living in the moment and not feeling the need to document experiences and thoughts for the blog, I’m ready to return to my little corner of the internet and kick off a new year with fresh new content.
Are you ready?
The Ivy has just opened up in the heart of Cheltenham and everyone is talking about it. Let’s just say, date nights don’t get better than this.
I can’t quite keep up with all the new bars and restaurants opening in Cheltenham at the moment. Not that I’m complaining, too much choice is better than no choice at all, right? So when I heard about Babel joining the line up, I jumped at the chance of an exclusive taster evening…
Another week, another date night…
The lovely people at Hollywood Bowl in Cheltenham recently invited myself and some guests to enjoy a night of bowling, dinner and drinks – I was bowled over and said yes, of course.
All in aid of raising money for Action For Charity: Women v Cancer, bloggers and businesses from in and around the Cotswolds came together to sell new and pre-loved fashion items, crafts, food and other offerings at the very first Cotswolds Creative Market.
I’ve never been the girl who buys fresh flowers every week. I’m not particularly great at keeping plants alive (RIP cacti friends), and it’s always much nicer to be sent flowers – don’t you think? There is something special about receiving a beautiful bouquet of blooms, whether it be a ‘thank you’ gesture or just a gift of love.
Recently life has got a lot busier, what with work stepping up a gear or two and then deciding that I would hold a fundraising event in six weeks with no budget (more on that later). My favourite corner of the internet has had to take a back seat for a number of reasons, but as it’s always been my online sanctuary where I can reflect and share experiences, I thought that perhaps it’s about time I talk about something a little more personal.
How I deal with anxiety.
