Thanksgiving is a holiday that means just one thing to anyone that celebrates it: FOOD. It might have started as a celebration of the harvest, but these days, Thanksgiving is about eating delicious food with your family. Every year, on the 4th Thursday of November, families gather round a table and stuff themselves silly!
Older architecture in London means you get shops and coffee houses with really interesting designs. One such cafe that I’ve been wanting to visit for a while is Attendant its a cafe built in an old Victorian public toilet from the 1800s. How funny is that? Just a stones throw from Oxford Circus, it doesn’t scream cafe, apart from the signage. The iron entryway, however, is a lovely welcome.
I used to subscribe to Birchbox when I was still living in New York, and it was so nice to have my monthly little samples turn up in the mail. I found so many great products through Birchbox, so I thought it was time I subscribed again here in the UK! The November Birchbox featured some really great products!
I had the most exciting morning on Saturday! The lovely Carrie Harwood, of WishWishWish, in conjunction with My Little Box, hosted a wonderful photography workshop with a small group of bloggers, and I got to be a part of it! 10 of us were selected out of a group of applicants to participate in the 3 hour session! We covered the basics, from adjusting settings on your camera, to arranging products for shooting. We had lots of goodies on the table to practice with!
P and I have just returned from a quiet weekend in Rye, where we were celebrating our anniversary! Rye is possibly the sweetest town I’ve ever been to, and it was so relaxing I wish we could’ve stayed another couple of days! We stayed in the loveliest little bed and breakfast called The Rye Windmill. I managed to book the Windmill Suite, which was a beautiful room with an iron spiral staircase that led to the bathroom (which had a spacious shower and bathtub, and his and hers sinks), and a private terrace that we could go out on and look over the little town.
