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!

Backyard Cinema...

I love a love story. So when I saw that Backyard Cinema was going to be showing Baz Luhrmann's Romeo and Juliet, I knew I had to get tickets. Ever since my Year 9 English teacher showed us sections of the film to help us understand Shakespeare's text, I've been slightly obsessed. It felt like we had to wait ages for 2nd April to come around, but yesterday was finally the day to see Leo on the big screen!
The showing took place in St Mary's Church, a few roads away from Marylebone station, with a live choir accompanying the film. Walking in, every detail added to the experience; from the staff dressed in flowery shirts to the blue crosses lining the aisles to the screen surrounded by flowers and candles. In traditional pop-up cinema style, we settled into our deck chairs with popcorn and old fashioned cola in hand ready for the film to start. 24 hours later and I still can't get over how incredible it was seeing the film in such an amazing setting with a magical live choir. If only I could wind back the clock and see it all over again!
