Things To Do In: Chichester

As we sat around the coffee table she exhaled into her hot chocolate and sighed “Jeeeeez this place is so boring!” It was the first time we had all gotten together in a while and as murmurs of mutual agreement crept around the table the words were out before I could stop them. “How can you say […]

The Burger Shop Co

Finding new places to eat is one of my favourite things to do,  so when I heard that The Burger Shop Co, the new burger shop in Arundel, had opened I knew it was time I stopped by for a visit. The Burger Shop Co’s mission is simple: To serve proper burgers, beers and cocktails. […]

Goodwood Revival

One of the best things about where I live is my proximity to Goodwood. It has the aerodrome, the motor track and every year it hosts an array of incredible events, including the infamous Goodwood Revival. Goodwood Revival is an event I have wanted to go to for years, but whenever that time of year […]

Tangmere Aviation Museum

Tangmere Aviation Museum was a place I had driven past many a times but never stopped into. I had always made the assumption that it would be boring, that it probably resemble a village hall with not much stuff in it because Chichester doesn’t tend to have the most expansive of collections (you usually have […]

Arundel Castle

Arundel Castle is a building whose presence demands attention.     Roger de Montgomery established Arundel Castle way back in 1067 on Christmas day. But the thing is dear Roger, is that a castle is for life and not just for Christmas! So S and I set off to explore and whilst I don’t mean to […]

Boxgrove Church

  You may remember that last week I showed you round Boxgrove Ruins (if you missed it you can check it out here) but today I want to show you around Boxgrove Church.     Boxgrove Church is literally right next-door to Boxgrove Ruins and its history is just as long. The only difference is […]

Boxgrove Ruins

Boxgrove Ruins is a place that has graced the backdrop of many a photoshoot. But before Boxgrove Ruins became the it place to have your engagement photos taken, it was a place steeped in history earning it its Grade 1 listing. England has been gloriously warm lately, so S and I decided that we’d get out […]

Bluebells in Chichester

Spring has sprung and the Bluebells in Chichester are out in full force. I’m quite lucky because I live in an incredibly charming city. Chichester has it’s pros and cons, like anywhere else in the world, but it’s old roman history combined with its small town city (we have a cathedral don’t you know) and countryside […]

Selsey Fireworks

Becoming an auntie was the weirdest thing. It was like one minute there was this cute little baby bump attached to my sister who couldn’t stop moaning about how much she missed pink steak and dippy eggs and soldiers, and the next minute there we were, stood watching Selsey Fireworks with this gorgeous little one-year old […]

Racton Ruins

Racton Ruins was a place S and I stumbled upon by accident. You see way back when temperatures in England were double digits and the sun graced us with its pleasant appearance, S and I were planning to take a stroll through some nearby lavender fields. But after winding through abandoned country roads and ending […]

Natalie Ewens Hairdressing

Hands up if you’ve ever felt personally victimised by Regina George your hairdresser. Ok. Good. I’m not the only one then. Over my 24 years of life I have had MORE than my fair share of bad experiences with hairdressers. I’ve had the the wonky fringe cut courtesy of my mother. I’ve had colour applied that […]

Jungle Paradise Adventure Golf

English Summer is a wonderful time. Unfortunately however, it’s a tad unpredictable. But despite the mishaps with weather, there’s one thing for sure – when the sun is out in England so are you. Unfortunately S and I don’t have much of a garden, so the usual BBQ’s and such that tend to happen when the […]

Goodwood Races

When people ask where I’m from it’s usually followed by a “LOL. WHERE!?” Such is life when you don’t live in one of the major English cities! One place that people have heard of in this charming little hometown of mine however, is Goodwood. There are two parts to Goodwood; the Motor Circuit and the […]

West Dean Gardens

I can guarantee you that if you spent five minutes on Google searching your local area, the results would turn up an abundance of places you have never visited. I’m on a mission to show you all as much of this beautiful place I call home as I can and one of my favourite places […]

Cass Sculpture Foundation

I recently went to the Cass Sculpture Foundation and I realised something. I don’t understand art. PHEW. There. I FINALLY admitted it. I think I had a tough introduction to art, to be fair. My teachers at school were very simplistic, which to a 14 year old chronic over-thinker wasn’t the best match. I never […]

Artie’s Kitchen

It feels like as soon as a new place opens in Chichester, it closes again. (Such is the life when you live in a small city with silly rent prices!) So when an independent pops up, I feel like it’s my duty to go and check it out before it disappears. So on Saturday morning […]

Players Classic

Growing up I was obsessed with the Fast and Furious franchise. Sure there are much better films out there, and some of the F&F plot lines are extremely unrealistic *cough*World’sLongestRunway*cough* but for me it wasn’t the structure of the films, but the lifestyle. It represented a family that was chosen. A family that was formed on […]

7 Bone Burger Co

I spend most of my days dreaming about food. If I’m not eating it, I’m cooking it, and if I’m not cooking it I’m pinning recipes on Pinterest ready to cook. But every so often the food that I find myself dreaming about most, is burgers. If you’ve been stopping by this blog of mine for a while I’m […]

Swanbourne Lake

  I adore rowing. It’s probably the only gym-exercise I actually 100% enjoy pushing myself past my mental limits on. But when the sun is out (or most other days to be honest) there’s not a single part of me that wants to spend the day inside the gym when I could be outside basking […]

Weald And Downland Museum

If you had asked me last year what I thought of England I probably would have told you that I’m really not happy because it’s cold and I miss living in shorts and flip-flops. But now? Well, I love being able to wear trousers again, I no longer take the patchwork quilt of greens, browns […]

6oz Burgers Southsea

Big cities. They’re filled with amazing food places. High end restaurants, food trucks and pop up stalls – there’s something for every taste preference and every budget. But when you live in a small coastal town on the South of England, these places can be harder to come by, especially when you’re surrounded by a shit-ton […]
