A perfect day in Sheringham

Hello you lovely bunch!

Apologies it’s been a while, doesn’t time just fly by? As always I need an extra few hours a day to fit everything in (and when I say everything I do just mean sunbathing, drinking gin and having a 3 hour window doing nothing whilst my nail varnish dries).

I hope you all had a fantastic bank holiday in England, weren’t we lucky with the weather! I follow fitness influencer Madalin Giorgetta on Instagram and she made me laugh as it was her first time in England over the bank holiday and she uploaded to her Insta stories ‘I don’t know why Brits are always complaining about the weather it’s beautiful here’ – little does she know we’ve just survived a second ice age!

My partner Dan purchased a barbecue last Friday in preparation for the family coming down for the weekend so naturally I’ve eaten nothing but barbecued Quorn sausages and griddled, smoked asparagus ever since. I shouldn’t complain, he is an amazing cook and I love to dine al fresco – if anyone has any brilliant vegan bbq recipes I would love to hear them please! I’ve heard barbecued banana is delicious but never tried it, anyone had it?

The reason I’m blogging today is I really wanted to share my bank holiday Monday with you all as we went to the nicest place and I barely knew it existed; I couldn’t face knowing other people may be missing out! We went to Sheringham Park, which is about an hour away from my house (Bungay) and it’s on the picturesque North Norfolk coast.

A rainy bank holiday in Lavenham

Happy Easter everyone!
I cannot believe it is the 2nd of April today, where on earth has the time between New Year and Easter gone? I hope you’re all filling your faces with chocolate, I’m currently face down in a vegan chocolate cake (you can see a pic on the ole ‘gram) – it’s the first vegan baking I’ve done and it turned out really well so expect to see more of that going forwards! Also I have to share with you lovely lot, I’m currently listening to The Weekend’s new EP ‘My Dear Melancholy’ and it’s absolutely wonderful, I’m obsessed with his music.

Anyway before I veer any further off topic, Lavenham. I don’t know if you know, but I’m a HUGE Harry Potter fan. I have been since that first book was released and I can’t step foot in Primark without leaving looking like I’ve been to some sort of convention. This was my initial reason for wanting to visit the small Suffolk town of Lavenham on Saturday. I don’t know about you but I like my Easter bank holiday weekend to be filled with walks, exploring and relaxation – often myself and Daniel will take ourselves off to a random town/city we haven’t been to before and go exploring. I had seen an article on Lavenham a few months ago and the topic was the Harry Potter film set.
The scenes in Godric’s Hollow, Harry Potter’s birthplace and house where he gained the infamous scar, were filmed in Lavenham!Β If you’re a fan you will know what I’m talking about, apologies if you don’t. Naturally anywhere which is anything remotely to do with Harry Potter draws me in, but it also was the pastel coloured medieval houses which I wanted to visit to see – hopefully you can tell from the pictures throughout this post why! Unfortunately the weather wasn’t the best for our visit so I will be making a beeline back there in the summer as the colours will look even more amazing in the sun. Continue reading

Blickling Hall happiness

So im writing this on a kindle. Im not enjoying it its safe to say, fellow bloggers do any of you ever post from a tablet or a phone?! In fairness, and this is not a joke, I had my old laptop since 2007 ish so cant compain too much but it died a few days ago so waiting on the new one to arrive! It was an excuse for a much more stylish white one though Β which will get dirty as hello but hashtag yolo and all that. Maybe I will do another kindle post and keep all the mistakes I make because lack of real keyboard and time myself doing it to see how long it takes. And maybe I will stick pins up my bum while im at it. Equally as fun. Dont ever tell me im not taking blogging seriously.Β  Continue reading

Easter Weekend & Skiing Anxiety

Hi! It’s me, Hollie. Remember me? Sorry I have been M.I.A for the past week, I had all sorts of post idea but then BAM Easter started and I have been in an alcohol induced coma for the past 3 days, not really feeling up to staring at a laptop screen for any other reason than to order from Just Eat. So healthy lifestyle blogger of me, I am so so proud right now. What can I say, life is about balance, ok?

This is a new style post for me, it’s kinda not really about anything other than what I have been up to and just letting you all get to know me a little better. Let’s face it i’m new on the blogging scene and you are all probably wondering who on earth this woman is and why should I care about what she has to say. Honestly, I don’t know why you should. But I am hoping just a little that you will anyway, because I am enjoying writing for you all! Continue reading
