With last year’s British Summer being a bit of washout, James and I decided we needed some sun and booked a short trip to Barcelona. I had been to Barcelona a few years ago and loved it, whereas it was the first time for James but I knew it was just what we needed. If… Read More Things to do in Barcelona
James and I successfully passed our Marriage interview towards the end of last year, meaning we can now officially get married at Bristol Registry Office. Whoop! We’re doing things a little differently to some in that we’re doing the signing of the papers and the legal stuff a few days before our actual wedding. We… Read More The Bath Pig
It wasn’t long ago that a burger seemed so simple, a bit of beef or chicken, lettuce leaves sandwiched between a bun. Perhaps with a dollop of ketchup. Fast forward to now and burgers have become a bit of an expert field. You can tell the difference between a good and bad burger, and it’s… Read More Our top Bristol Burgers
Stuart Holmes salon in Cheltenham is one of the town’s treasures. It is one of those places I feel completely confident in recommending to someone, even if that does mean it becomes increasingly popular.

I guess it’s because we’re all quite similar people in that we either love food, taking photographs of food or writing about experiences we have eating… Read More Testing out the Olympus Pen E-PL8
Jessop’s House celebrated it’s second birthday a few weeks ago and I was lucky enough to be invited along to join in with the festivities.

It’s that time of year where we lock away our BBQs that have barely been used over the Summer and wonder why we ever bought one in the first place, preparing ourselves for the long Winter. Trying to get into the mindset that there are definitely some things to look forward to over Winter, I’m… Read More The Bunch of Grapes, Bradford on Avon
James and I are vegetarian about 5 days out of 7. It’s not something we’ve actively decided, it’s just that we don’t tend to buy meat or cook it whilst at home.
