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.
If you’re looking for somewhere to visit this weekend, make Meggie’s in Stow-On-The-Wold your first port of call.
I’ve said it once, and I’ll say it again – living in the Cotswolds is pretty awesome. With so many dreamy attractions to visit, weekends around here are never boring.
Yesterday I ventured out into the countryside and there was only one place on my mind…
Continuing on from my last Cotswolds post here, myself and Nia and enjoyed a much needed rest in our suite before dinner.
Canapés and prosecco were from 6.45pm in the bar, where we indulged in more delicious bite size delights.
This week marks seven years since I sat down to write my first blog post. Little did I know that I would still be sat here typing away on my laptop, creating content on this corner of the blogosphere seven years on. So to celebrate, I want to share seven of my favourite places to eat out in Cheltenham. Please note that there are many more I also enjoy visiting, so it was difficult narrowing it down to just seven. I want to give you a broad idea of the many different types of cuisine you can enjoy across the town, whatever the budget or occasion. Some of these are also great date night locations – in case you’re stuck for somewhere to take your other half this Valentines Day!
Hello 2020! It’s been a while, but I’m back. Last year I doubted myself too often about what type of content I should create, what photos to share on social media – even what caption to accompany it – and generally felt quite lost in the blogosphere. I would constantly ask myself, “do people even care about what I have to say? Is what I want to say even interesting?” I realised that I need to stop second guessing everything I do and just do it. So here I am, stripping things back to basics again on here. More travel guides, more chatty posts, more of what I love to consume as well as what I love to write. Thank you for being patient whilst I’ve been trying to find myself again on this platform, and here’s to a new year with new adventures and opportunities.
As you have probably gathered from all the blog content and social media activity, the last couple of months have been jam-packed full of events. Not that I’m complaining, I like keeping busy, but earlier in June it started to feel like I couldn’t keep up. Aside from blogging duties, there were also several birthdays, a hen do, an anniversary and a wedding to contend with… it was too much. At the end of May I promised myself I would take a step back from doing too much in June and July, in order to recharge my batteries and look after myself. Fast forward a couple of weeks and I’ve already made plans to go to three events and a festival – I’m my own worst enemy! I’m really excited to have these opportunities though and that I get to share them with you, whether it inspires or motivates you to do something a little bit different. Put the kettle on, as I recap what I’ve been up to lately and what you can look forward to coming up in and around the Cotswolds…
Two festivals in a week – I wasn’t joking in my last post when I said that festival season was upon us! Keeping it local again, we headed to the Cheltenham Racecourse for music, food and other activities at the festival that Time Out calls “an excellent hybrid of the Big Chill, WOMAD and The Cambridge Folk Festival.” Celebrating its 15th year, here is what you can expect from a weekend at Wychwood Festival…
Festival season is upon us! The Cotswolds is home to a variety of fantastic festivals – from Cheltenham Festival (horse racing) and Cheltenham Festivals (Jazz, Science, Music and Literature), to The Big Feastival, we are really spoilt for choice. One festival I hadn’t come across before though was Mello, a family friendly festival based near Worcester. I was kindly invited to go along for the day, so with my best friend in tow, we made our way to Mello Festival…
In over six years of blogging, I’ve been lucky to attend many launch parties and reviewed a lot of local restaurants, but this event was one of the most memorable of them all.
I was kindly invited to the grand opening of Pundits, a new Indian restaurant to Cheltenham, with the expectation of dining with local journalists and bloggers. Instead, we were seated on a table with the Mayor of Cheltenham and his lovely wife, the owner of Pundits and Gordon Ramsay *ahem* – with a feast of delicious Asian cuisine.
