An afternoon at Tate Britain

You know how sometimes you just have a perfect day? Last Wednesday was like that. The morning was spent attacking the Jimmy Choo sale before a delicious lunch and an amble around Tate Britain all with my lovely mummy. Totally dreamy. Lunch was at the newly renovated Rex Whistler restaurant at Tate Britain, it was tropically […]

Cochon Butcher

I’d originally wanted to try out Donald Link’s other restaurant, Cochon on Saturday night but sadly it gets packed to the rafters and I had left it a little late to get a table. As a result, before we left New Orleans on Monday we found ourselves running through the heaviest rain I’ve ever encountered […]

Sunday in New Orleans

May I recommend something? If you’re doing a road trip, you should really check if you’re going to cross any time zones. We may have neglected that little detail when planning our trip and as a result, ended up driving for an hour longer than planned. The very clever sat nav knew about the time […]

Apalachicola

As I said in my last post, we’ve been coming to Florida my whole life and whilst it’s beautiful and the perfect place to relax, you couldn’t exactly describe it as buzzing  where we are. My brother was pretty darn relaxed after a few months here and quite keen for a change of scenery which led to […]

Birthday Weekend

And then […]

Falling for Florence

I must confess, my trip to Florence was not the most cultural of excursions. I was the only one who hadn’t been before and as a result, there was less time spent exploring and marvelling at the sights, and more time catching up, eating great food and drinking wine. I can’t say there were any […]
