Last week I celebrated my birthday with drinks & dancing with the girls followed swiftly (and gratefully) by a restful staycation with Marc in the New Forest. We had left it until the last minute to decide where to go but I’m so happy that we settled on the New Forest as it was so incredibly beautiful and completely beat my expectations.

Some of my favourites on this trip have been: Le Botaniste I love Le Botaniste for comforting, hearty, organic plant-based dishes. Everything is designed to nourish the body, which is why… View Post
