Animal Kingdom Lodge Review
Read on for my Animal Kingdom Lodge Review. “Oh my god,” I said, sliding the glass door open to yell to my husband. “A giraffe is eating breakfast outside our window!” He raced to the balcony and into the winter Florida sun. “A giraffe is eating breakfast outside our window,”…
Kilimanjaro Club Level Review
Whether you’re interested in staying at Kilimanjaro Club Level at Animal Kingdom Lodge or you’ve already planned a trip to Animal Kingdom Lodge Club Level and want a glimpse of what you’re in for, here is my Kilimanjaro Club Level review.  Staying at Kilimanjaro Club Level – Animal Kingdom Lodge Firstly, to…
My Cookie Dough 3
Read on for a review of My Cookie Dough in London. One of the things I like to eat most, which is probably shared by most of you, is raw cookie dough. There’s something about a cookie-not-cooked-yet that tastes amazing and kind of makes you feel like you’re being a…
Square Pie
Tis the season to eat everything in sight, especially warm things as the weather has taken a turn for the FREEZING here recently (and there’s a bunch of snow out my window right now). When winter rolls around, there’s nothing that Guy loves more than pie. That is all he…
Beech Hill Hotel and Spa 4
In a country seemingly full of places that look the same (sometimes I feel like once I’ve seen one English countryside village, I’ve seen them all), the Lake District stands out as one of our favorite places to getaway. It’s a four to five hour drive from London, making it…

We’ve been to Hyde Park’s Winter Wonderland, Christmas at Kew, and generally spent multiple hours fighting our way through horrendous crowds on Oxford Street to see the twinkling lights for about ten seconds…
Le Blaireau Careys Manor Dessert
During our recent stay at Careys Manor (read my review here,) we got to experience a three-course dinner at its on-site French restaurant, Le Blaireau. Access to the restaurant is both from within the hotel, as well as this cute entrance outside for regular dining guests. I chose Le Blaireau for…
Careys Manor Sign
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…
Harry Potter and the Cursed Child Review 2
If you’ve just  come out from under the rock you’ve been hiding under, you might not know that Harry Potter and the Cursed Child tickets are some of the hardest seats to get in London right now (and have been since they were released). If you’ve been paying a modicum…
