Bestival 2015!

I think I have finally recovered from the incredible four days we just spent at Bestival. May I just say before I ramble on about the site, acts etc. That it was the best festival I have ever been to, every detail of it was amazing.

Getting the ferry is a nice little addition to your normal UK based festival. Make’s it feel like your going on a lovely holiday saying goodbye to the mainland and then pulling up to the very picturesque Isle of Wight. Then it is only a short journey until you get to enter the truly magical site of Bestival.

A Different Day Out In Norfolk

Yesterday we went on a very different day out compared to our normal weekend activities (eating,shopping and drum & bass nights). We went to Bressingham Steam & Gardens, I know random right. Well I have to say I was shocked at how much I enjoyed the day we spent with Matt’s Parents, looking around all the old trains – nothing like Abellio Greater Anglia let’s just say that. The interiors of the train’s are like houses with bedrooms, bathrooms all in decor from various ages (mainly the 1930’s I believe). They are beautiful pieces of machinery. You learn so much when you step out of the high street and raves every once in a while. This post is full of photo’s and to think I streamlined the selection too – snap happy 🙂

Marrakech Photo Journal

Today’s blog is a bit different, i’m posting a small photo journal of my recent trip to Marrakech. The reason for it being ‘small’ is due to the fact that it was a trip that me and my partner went on so the majority of photo’s taken are of us generically standing in front of things. I have picked out my favourite snaps of The Souks, Artisan Centre & the A-mazing Majorelle Gardens. We did see many other sights on our trip, I highly recommend immersing yourself into the Moroccan artisan culture at one point in your life.

Glamping at Lee Wick Farm

This week we were lucky enough to take a glamping trip to Lee Wick Farm http://www.leewickfarm.co.uk/. Having never visited there or been glamping at all before we really were not sure if it was going to be our cup of tea, but excitement was in the air all the same. Lee Wick Farm is in a lovely little village called St Osyth in Essex (near Clacton On Sea), driving through it you can see quaint little local shops, lovely houses, pubs etc. your classic english village – I spotted a lovely little tea room and kicked myself when we got home and forgot to visit. We stayed in MegaPod 1, the lovely wooden pods which consist of a double bed, sofa bed, dining area, small kitchen unit, bathroom, solar-powered shower shed and outside seating area with BBQ and log burner. We were so pleased with the accommodation when we arrived. It was the perfect size for two, we were actually quite shocked at how big they were inside. They were clean it was on a lovely site, an overall winner for me!

Spa Break at Congham Hall

Everyone deserves a time out and last weekend we had a fabulous one at Congham Hall http://www.conghamhallhotel.co.uk/ it was gorgeous. The location was perfect in the silent bliss of the Norfolk countryside. We stayed for one night in one of their Good House Rooms complete with king size bed, lovely waterfall shower, Nespresso machine and all the other good stuff.

We were in the building about 15 minutes before jumping into our gown and slippers and heading down to the spa. The spa consists of a swimming pool with jets that are like a water masseuse, sauna, steam rooms, foot spa’s and experience showers (I recommend the tropical rainfall – it makes thunder sounds and everything -crazy). The highlight of the spa for me though was the outdoor hot tub which we were lucky enough to have all to ourselves. It overlooks the beautiful grounds of the hotel, you can see the rabbits hopping around. It was relaxation at it’s prime.

Bank Holiday Weekend!

Nearly time to return to work but not before sharing some of the things I got up to this Bank Holiday Weekend.  Friday we went to The Making of Harry Potter at Warner Bros. Studio’s, this was part of my birthday present from my lovely boyfriend. I will just say now I adore the Harry Potter franchise, so this day out to me was the bee’s knees of a day trip. I just can’t get over how much goes into the production of these films. The day was spent boring Matt by explaining every feature of the tour in-depth, which film it was in, who wore it etc. Here are a few of my highlights….

Diagon Alley, so cool. I wish the shops were real though!
