Careys Manor New Forest Review

Imagine a world where ponies run wild right outside your window, a relaxing spa looks out to grass fields and breakfast can be eaten in your slippers and bathrobe. Now stop imagining, because whatever you’ve come up with in your head is nowhere near as good as the real thing...

Embellish Box Review

If you’re like me and you need to be doing something at all times, it can be hard to find ways to relax. I tell myself that I’m going to ‘take the day off’ and then sit there uncomfortably for 10 minutes staring at the wall before I’m immersed in...

November Rain Poncho Review

This past month, England has been living up to its ‘rainy’ stereotype and blessing us all with loads of water falling from the sky while we’re just trying to live our lives. I have to admit to being incredibly annoyed by this, as I’m used to massive Florida thunderstorms that...

Is the London Eye Worth It?

As the most popular tourist attraction in London, the London Eye is impossible to miss as you’re walking along the Thames. It was originally built in 2000 as the “Millennium Wheel,” though the Millennium is almost 20 years behind us now and it’s still slowly rotating over the river, steady...

Macdonald Alveston Manor Hotel Review

Overview Situated just off Clopton bridge in Stratford-upon-Avon, the Macdonald Alveston Manor Hotel is a beautiful historic hotel in Warwickshire. We were lucky enough to get to stay in the hotel this past weekend during our visit to Stratford-upon-Avon, and we weren’t disappointed. As a major draw for tourists, Stratford-upon-Avon has...

Churchill War Rooms Review

Keeping track of UK history can be a bit daunting given it’s extensive history of imperialism and the oftentimes confusing past of the monarchy (why does everyone seemed to be named James or Victoria?). But I would argue that one of the most recognizable names to us expats, regardless of our...

Magical Lantern Festival Review

Last week, the fiance (henceforth known as Guy because that’s his name) and I went to the Magical Lantern Festival at Chiswick House in London. Chiswick House and Gardens are not too far from Turnham Green tube station, unless you are me and it takes you double the time because...
