One of the things I did not anticipate after buying a house was just how hard it would be to decorate it. Not hard in a “this is a difficult process” kind of way, but hard in a “wow, how are there so many choices and yet also none at…

There are few things in life more satisfying than a plate of cookies with your name on them (literally or figuratively). One of the only things, actually, is probably a delivery of fresh cookies straight to your door. So, THANK YOU Psychic Monkey for making this girl’s dream a reality. The…
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…
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…
Last weekend we went down to the coast (Dover, more specifically) to have a few days away and check to see if we could still see France (yep, can confirm, still there!) We had been trying to find a castle to visit while down south when Guy brought up the…

bekonscot model village review
Bekonscot Model Village, the oldest original model village in the world, is just a train ride away from central London in a town called Beaconsfield. Basically, an entire village (and more) has been recreated with small figurines and miniature buildings to scale. While there are model villages in other countries…
“Grab the gun!” I yelled as my friend dumped open a suitcase. My friend dropped the book she was holding and ran towards the gun. I threw it at her and ran to the desk to rifle through the drawers. We tried the door again. Still locked. We looked at…
When Harry Potter first became popular in the States, I was 11 and obsessed with chapter books. I vividly remember reading Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone (Philosopher’s Stone in the UK) under my blanket with a flashlight like the little geek I was. Because of the release dates of…
