A Weekend in Amsterdam...

For the last May bank holiday, Ben and I made a last minute decision to jump on the Eurostar and spent a fab weekend in Amsterdam! We got some tips from work colleagues, packed our bags and spent an incredible 4 days in the amazing city. We got really lucky with the weather so spent most of the time exploring the city on bikes. My favourite day was definitely the Saturday, biking round Vondelpark and lazing in the sunshine.

Five things not to miss in Amsterdam:
  1. Vondelpark
  2. Anne Frank's House
  3. Cycling round the small canals in the Jordaan neighbourhood
  4. Pancakes, pancakes and more pancakes
  5. Van Gogh Museum 
We're already thinking of where we want to head to next! Have you been on any great city breaks you'd recommend?

A Weekend In Warwickshire...

This weekend Ben and I spent a wonderful weekend in Warwickshire. I thought we were heading to Brighton for a day trip on Saturday but Ben has secretly planned a little getaway to Stratford-Upon-Avon! We stayed in beautiful Farmhouse Cottage he found on Airbnb, if the accommodation wasn't beautiful enough, it even had a hot tub overlooking the incredible Costwolds landscape! Naturally I had my camera in hand and to plenty of pictures so here's a our weekend in Warwickshire photo diary!

London Coffee Festival...

Last weekend, Ben and I headed to London Coffee Festival with a couple of our friends. We went two years ago and really enjoyed it so thought we'd go again! Like last time, London Coffee Festival is kind of part trade show, part festival/market. 
One of the best (and most indulgent) things this year was the BaileysxMollyBakes cocktail we decided to try. A mixture of cream, Baileys and coffee, topped with sweet treats; it's safe to say I felt a little sick after eating it! If you've never been to London Coffee Festival before, I'd definitely recommend going, however, this year I did find it super busy so be prepared to have to weave your way in and out of the crowds!
