ESCAPE TO THE ANGEL HOTEL, BURY ST. EDMUNDS


last weekend was ben's birthday, and whilst i was planning the ultimate birthday present (more on that next week), the ultimate birthday adventure offer was put in front of me: a weekend in bury st. edmunds, staying at the gorgeous, luxurious, totally-instagrammable hotel: the angel. we had been chatting about a weekend away, and in fact already had one booked - for the week following his birthday, because he wanted a big party and lots of drinks on the big day, and fair enough too; you only turn thirty once! but, our booked trip away, was made via air b&b, in a small, second bedroom in a harbour-street flat because whitstable is super expensive in june... so, a night in luxury was obviously a no-brainer in comparison, and off we went, the friday before last, curious about what adventures were in store...

DINING AT CINNAMON BAZAAR IS NOW A PIECE OF CAKE



the most annoying thing about dining out - other than trying to choose what you want, is splitting the bill. especially if there's a whole bunch of you eating different amounts of courses, more expensive drinks than others, or if you're trying to budget. and there is literally nothing more annoying than being that one person who cowers at the phrase "shall we just split it evenly?" when you know you only had a starter and tap water and everyone else was on cocktails and side plates. so, when i heard that there was a new app on the market that claimed to take all the hassle out of the end of the meal, i was curious.

THREE WAYS TO KILL TIME IN BLED IF YOU'RE NOT INTO RELAXING (& TWO IF YOU ARE)


if you've read my previous post on the day we spent in ljubljana, you'll know just how much we fit in in such a short amount of time. as a big fan of busy city breaks, that's kinda how i like to spend them: busy. i want to see, do, taste, and experience it all, so the more we can fit in: the better. we definitely got our fill in the capital; topping the pastel city was going to be tough, especially when all we had planned for our two days in lake bled was: relaxing by the lake. 

THE PERFECT WEDDING GUEST



i am the queen of making plans, but not so much the queen of planning. as in, i agree to do things, or book in holidays or trips away, or plan to have lunch or whatever with people, but i am very, very, very bad at planning the particular details of said event. so, for me to have already decided on a dress for a wedding i am going to in september is unusual. what's more unusual is that not only have i got a dress sorted, i also have shoes, a suitable handbag, and the perfect hair and make-up sorted too.
