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 […]

Lordington Lavender

Lordington Lavender is a place that I’ve been wanting to go for a whole year and a half. Now, I know what you’re thinking: “What type of person waits that long to go and play in some lavender fields” And the answer is me. I’m that person. Lordington Lavender is a farm based in Funtington which, […]

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 brag… I […]

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 that Boxgrove Church 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 […]

Day Trip To Bath

Do you ever wake up in the morning and think “I want to go somewhere different today?” Because that’s exactly what happened on the weekend when we took a day trip to Bath. Well… Kinda. I woke on Saturday morning to a gentle elbow nudge from S. “Amy, it’s 10am, wake up!” I stirred and […]

Nicolino’s

If you’re looking for a place to eat with character and charm, then boy have I found the place for you. You see on a typically rainy English day S and I found ourselves sat in the car with hangrrr looming but no idea where to head for lunch. You see our lunch-list repertoire has […]

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 up […]

Skydiving Neverathon APA

Have you ever wanted to do something for ages but for some reason you keep putting it off? Well that was me when it came to skydiving. Like so many others, skydiving had been on my Bucket List for a while. It had stayed on the list for a while because, yano fear of death and […]

St Michael’s Mount.

I have a confession to make. I watch way to much Walking Dead (if such a limit exists). So much so that when S and I recently went to St Michael’s Mount I couldn’t help but think how perfect it would be as a place to escape to should the zombie apocalypse happen. For those of […]

Mên-An-Tol

I never thought I’d find myself writing about a bunch of rocks. Much less going to see a bunch of rocks on purpose. But Mên-An-Tol proved that I can still surprise myself. After we had finished exploring The Minack Theatre S took us for a drive on a quest to find food and sate the hunger that […]

The Minack Theatre

Looking at these photos I can hear your mind questioning away. Where is this? Is this Greece? And I’d forgive you for questioning it. But believe it or not this beautiful place is actually in England. Cornwall to be precise! I know I know, those blue skies were incredibly deceiving! We recently took a trip to […]

Air BnB: My 1st Experience

Air Bnb. It’s a site that many have heard of but not that many have used. …Ok that’s a lie. It seems like everybody has used it and I was, once again, extraordinarily late to the party. I’d seen various posts on Air BnB from trusted (to me) bloggers such as Relokate and Expat Edna […]

The Bao-Factor

I love London. I love the busy streets, the eclectic shops and the various flavours that entwine and captivate your senses as you wander the streets. But I find that after a few days in The Big Smoke I get sensory overload , so instead I tend to plan day trips, and those day trips usually have […]

London Day Trip

A London day trip is my favourite type of trip.     I mean living in London would be my biggest favourite but until I have a limitless bank account and somebody invents a metabolism booster I’ll stick to my day trips, because if I lived in London now I would become very poor and […]

Natalie Ewens Hairdressing

If you’re looking to find Chichester Hairdressers, then Natalie Ewens Hairdressing has been my haircare secret for over a decade of my life.   Let’s have a vote. Hands up if you’ve ever felt personally victimised by Regina George your hairdresser. Ok, good. I’m not the only one then.     I have had more than […]

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 […]
