Carpe Diem!

For those who live under the rock, Carpe Diem is latin for seize the day. It's something I carry around with me within my blog's domain as much as I apply it into my everyday life. It's that little something to remind me of what's important in my life. This subject I'm going to …

Wicked Hathern Festival, Leicestershire

So last weekend myself, Jordan and my parents decided to attend the Wicked Hathern Festival in my village. Since moving here over 2 months ago it was always our intention to attend the event. It was the fourth year running that the festival took place, hosting a wide variety of local bands as well as some comedy acts too. It's fun for the whole family with even some family friendly fun squeezed in for good measure. The event raises money for local charities and groups too!

Afternoon Tea at Chatsworth House, Derbyshire.

24th Birthday Adventure to London!

Last month myself and Jordan popped into London to spend a day shopping and then off to a surprise restaurant for my 24th birthday (more on the restaurant later).

I was in my absolute element as Jordan hadn't ever visited London properly so being the lover of all things London I decided to take lead in our day and ensure he experienced some of the best things that London has to offer. Now the thought of moving around using the tube a few years ago would have made me feel terrible and frightened in an instant, finding any way that I could to avoid using them. Since last year I have got really comfortable and confident in using them, learning the routes to the places I wanted to go before I went down there and as a result calming my fears! I decided that first we should head straight over to Camden Market. I've loved Camden Market ever since I first walked the cobbled streets and smelt all the amazing amounts of food that they had to offer. I enjoy the variety of stuff that there is available there and it's always a joyful experience.
