Cocktailin' in Budapest

19 September 2016

One thing I know for certain is that on our flight home from Budapest, I was approximately 99% cocktails. That other 1% was reserved for Hungarian desserts and Hungarian desserts only, which should give you a pretty decent indication as to the stupendous success of this trip.  

I'm sure official tour guides have many rich, history-filled and culturally significant things to say about Budapest, but in my opinion it can be summed up like this: Budapest is like Paris, but a down-and-dirty no-shits-given kinda version of Paris. I felt like I was hanging out with my favourite city’s dirtier, spottier, more greasy twin brother who cared less about being the sophisticated sib...and more about getting pissed. And that's my sorta sibling. So here are photographs from day one in Budapest; some of them contain cocktails and all of them were taken while under the influence of cocktails. C'est la vie (or 'ez az √©let'; if I wanted to pretend I had literally the foggiest clue how to speak even one word of Hungarian and didn't believe that the origin of the language was someone repeatedly slamming their forehead mindlessly against a typewriter). 






In a nutshell, we absolutely loved every single thing about Budapest. The language, the food, the sights and even the sweat after 2 days of walking around in 30 degree, unexpected heatwave heat. May Budapest forever be as awesome as it was this weekend.

Unfortunately, my body mass is now back to 100% coffee. Time for me to book my next holiday…but until then, you can follow along on Bloglovin', Twitter, Facebook, or Instagram

Wedding: T + J

15 September 2016

We all know that Pinterest is the place where good intentions go to die and the sad realisation that you don't have a single crafty bone in your body becomes frighteningly apparent (seriously, some of these are so good). But let me tell you - PINTEREST IS REAL, GUYS. From the flowers in Tash's hair to the bunting on the fence to the pizza van that turned up after dinner; Tash and Jack's wedding was what dreams are made of (be still my Hilary Duff loving beating heart, ahem).  

And anyway, you know your wedding's hit the big time when a neighbouring horse tootles over and eats your flower decorations straight off the fence. Yep, it was absolutely horsome. (Sorry, not sorry). 

Thank you to Tasha and Jack for letting me play pinterest IRL all day and also please excuse me while I wipe away my tears of joy and add the entire wedding album to my future pinterest wedding board.

Unashamed plug time: if you live in or near the Surrey area and fancy letting me perve on your wedding day too - check out my portfolio. Otherwise, join the partay by following along on all manner of social medias:  Bloglovin', Twitter, Facebook, or Instagram
