Art for the masses // Contemporary Art Fair, Esher

Art is one of those things that I sadly can’t say I have much knowledge of. I’ve never been good at it myself, in fact, there’s a long-running joke in my family about a “hook-nosed bird” I attempted to draw for my art homework that looked nothing like a bird. At school, I found myself so envious of anyone who was able to doodle, draw images from their mind’s eye or copy things from sight. Despite me not having much knowledge of the art world, I’ve always found it fascinating and when the Contemporary Arts Fair got in touch to say they were coming to Esher in Surrey I couldn’t wait to hear more about it.

Valentines Day // Some alternative ways to celebrate

Cupid‘s national day is fast approaching and whether you’re loved up or loving the single life, there’s no escaping it. Everyone has different opinions on the somewhat controversial day, but one thing we can all agree on is that roses become double the price, chocolate too and getting a table anywhere for a disappointing, set, overpriced menu is nigh on impossible. So I thought I would put together some fun alternative ways for everyone to celebrate, be it the long-term couples, the new daters, the singles loving life or the singles wanting to mingle/meet someone.

It was the Summer of ’17 // Summer round up

I appreciate I’ve been a terrible blogger. It’s been a good 6 months since I last posted. I’ve come to realise that I go through phases when it comes to blogging or writing and generally speaking, when the weather is lovely and I’ve got a ton going on, sadly blogging tends to fall at the waistline.

Tree-house Escape // Chewton Glen

Hidden away at the bottom of the new forest, surrounded by 130 acres of luscious greenery, walled gardens growing fresh ingredients, buzzing beehives and a 9 hole golf course, you’ll find 12 magical tree-houses suspended 35 feet above the ground, belonging to Chewton Glen.

For any of you lovely lot that have been following me for a while now, you might remember me writing about Thames Court before, where we sat by the river and had lunch for my best friends birthday. Well, it’s been given a lovely make over, so they invited the girls and I down to check it out.

The Worlds Best Dinner Party // WeFiFo + Epsom Supper Club

One of the biggest complaints from people that live in Surrey is the lack of independently owned and run restaurants serving amazing food. Granted me have a handful and the ones we do have are amazing, but it wouldn’t take you long to work your way through them all and then be left with the chains. Well WeFiFo is changing that, and the way we go out to eat all together.
