Wondering through the Cotswolds Lavender Fields


Cotswolds Lavender Fields

I can’t believe it’s been four years since I last visited the Cotswolds Lavender Fields in Snowshill. A lot has happened since then, including having taken photography lessons, so I was keen to see how I’d improved. With such stunning scenery as my subject I surely couldn’t go far wrong. So this last weekend we took […]

A Change of Pace

Regular readers may have noticed, although I realise there has been a lot going on in the UK in the last month that I will forgive you if you haven’t, that I have been posting less often. I’ve been quietly trying to work out what direction to take with the blog and my social media. […]

How to Make Your Weekend Feel Longer


the Welsh countryside

It was one of the best days. It was an early morning start to get to the meeting point for Classic Car Escapes. I […]

The Gower Peninsula

The Gower Peninsula is an area of outstanding natural beauty on the coast of Wales. And it certainly lives up to its name. As part of the Traverse 16 conference we were given the opportunity to pick a Sunday experience. As soon as I saw The Gower Peninsula listed I hit reply and I was […]

What Does Success Look Like to You? 


Steve Jobs quote

Well I can guarantee it won’t be the same as your friends or the person standing next to you. And you know what, that’s perfectly OK. We all get caught up in the comparison trap, but that just puts unnecessary obstacles on your path to success. My Story By day I’m a marcomms professional and love […]

Brunch at Beefeater Bar + Block


Avocado and Poached Egg at Beefeater Bar + Block, Birmingham

If I’m eating in a chain restaurant, then I’m picky about which ones. So when I got an email* about the new concept from Beefeater Bar + Block it intrigued me to want to find out more. Bar + Block is seeking to introduce a new type of dining onto the Birmingham food scene. With it’s […]
