You and me and G and T…

31 Jul

I had the pleasure of going on a little lunch excursion with some of my colleagues today, sadly because one of the lovely ladies was leaving this did however involve some amazing Thai food and the discovery of a little pub in Brighton called The Office that serves over 30 types of Gin!!!!


Now I have to admit I haven’t always been a Gin fan and would have been more likely to be seen with a bottle of beer!

But now I love nothing more than a G n’ T with lots of ice and a slice of lime. My favourite has always been Bombay Sapphire and The beautiful bottle has always made it feel a little bit special.


I am however already planning a trip back to The Office with Mr B to try out some of their amazing selection including this gorgeous offering and I haven’t been able to stop thinking about the gorgeous art work on the bottle ever seen seeing it:


I am not sure we will manage all 30 in one in visit but what a great excuse for another trip!



Sunshine Wishes and Bunny Kisses…

20 Feb

Come on Spring! Hurry up! We are waiting for you!

I cannot be the only one who is wanting some more sunshine and to be able to wear shorts without wooly tights and to maybe even frolick around in a field……Or something like that (to be honest I would settle for not having to wear a scarf at the moment)

I am fed up of this fake sunshine that looks so inviting in the morning and then freezes your bits off once you step outside. Although this being said I piled on the layers at the weekend and me and my bloke ventured into the cold on the mission to find some clothes for our holiday (Thankfully which is in much warmer climes) I didn’t do so well on the clothes front and only found one bargain this H&M Conscious Collection Kimono which I got for the princely sum of £7

I am hoping it will come in handy in the evenings on our hols as it is quite thin and so the evening humidity won’t kill me.

This however was not my favorite find of the day…

I love TK Maxx mainly for their Home wares section than the clothing and on this particular visit I fell in LOVE…

With a Bunny!

He is part of The Stone Bunny Inc Collection by Telle M Stein and although the website doesn’t seem to be running anymore I am sure a Google search would bring up more of these pretty chaps.

I am hoping he may become a key part of the Easter Egg hunt that happens at our house every year!

Even Lebowski made friends although I suspect he is just after the ribbon.

Paddle Round The Pier Cont…

2 Jul

Just got back from the Paddle Round The Pier and it was a fantastic day.

The sun was shining all day and there was a fabulous turnout.

There were gorgeous Surfboards and beautiful Camper Vans.

These amazing cool skater dudes!

Dune Buggies of all colours, even a glittery blue one which I think would be a great Doolallytatmobile.

And this cute doggy who had clearly been for a paddle.

The event is also on tomorrow too and I recommend going and taking a look.

Hope you have all had equally wonderful days and enjoyed the Sunshine. XOXO
