Our Engagement Garden Party! 👩‍❤️‍💋‍👩💍

On our first year anniversary together, Char and I decided to mark the occasion by throwing an engagement party for ourselves. We’d already been engaged for nearly 6 months, after Char proposed to me in front of the London Eye on NYE, but we love any excuse for a party and wanted to share the…

Wild Place Project – 2 Birds 1 Love Review! 🦓🦒🐆

“We’re goin’ to the zoo, zoo, zoo. How about you, you, you? You can come too, too, too, we’re going to the zoo, zoo, zoo!” Ahh, what a great song…one of the earliest songs I learnt when I started school, with my teacher singing it to us all while playing her guitar…so cool! It’s really…

Animal Farm Adventure Park – 2 Birds 1 Love Review! 🐖🎢🐏

We love a good family day out, especially when it’s fun for the whole family, so we searched for attractions in Somerset, near to where we were camping for a 3 night getaway. We came across Animal Farm Adventure Park , a family theme park which had a ‘kidsfest’ event being held across the dates…

Burton Springs Campsite – 2 Birds 1 Love Review! 🏕🎣

We can’t go a year without camping, we just love it, and since we had fabulous views the last couple of times we’ve been, I of course had to do my research to find an exceptionally good campsite this time. We decided to go to Somerset, not too far away and with favourite childhood haunts…

Camping – the highs and lows! 🏕

It seems crazy that this time last year we actually braved going under canvas for the Easter weekend. We couldn’t even imagine going now with the weather we’ve been having lately, but last year we had an absolute blast, and surprisingly gorgeous weather in comparison. (n.b. I did actually start writing this post when it…

New York – Homemade Manhattan! 🍎🗽🚕

Whenever it’s a special occasion, one of our birthdays, Christmas or in this instance Valentines Day, we always have this running joke with each other where we ask for something completely out of our price range, just for a laugh, we know it’s never gonna happen but it’s always fun to play along. So for…
