Top Five Friday – local adventures

I can not believe it’s already Friday, which means another dose of Top Five Friday, Local adventures. This week has gone by so fast, I am now just realizing I have wasted 4 weeks and not managed to work on my postgraduate assignment. It’s due in two weeks and I am procrastinating too much which is not good as I have 4 assignments to get done ASAP. But never one to dwell too much I am planning on working on one assignment today. The plan is to do the blog things along side my normal day job between 9-5 then only work on assignment tonight. Wish me luck.

Top Five Friday – local adventures 

Greys Court – if you follow me on my main Instagram account you will know I visited the national trust property last Sunday. You can read what I got up to HERE, it is such an impressive place and it is family friendly.

Nuffield Place – another local adventure I am embarking on tomorrow, I saw it on way my back from Greys Court and knew I needed to see it. I am enjoying doing all the wonderful local adventures and playing tourist in my own city. This has been absolutely epic and I can not wait to visit more places. Having the national trust membership has been great and can not wait to visit more places.

Afternoon Tea @ Quod 

Y’all know how much I enjoy a good afternoon tea like the one at Chi Kitchen in London. When my assistant asked me if I wanted to do spa or afternoon tea, it was a tough choice. Obviously I wanted spa but budget calls for afternoon tea. I am excited to have this afternoon tea with her and do some shopping as well as sightseeing in Oxford.

Tassimo UK – I am so excited to be collaborating with them on my main blog A July Dreamer. They reached out to me last week when I was in Barcelona and just had the best of time. I am a sucker for tea and hot chocolate, look out for my review on the main blog.

The Idle Man

Continuing with latest collaborations, I am fortunate to be working with The Idle man to help style the man in your life. We picked up a couple of items from them for my father and brother and will be sharing what soon.

Everyday I am amazed at the opportunities the blogs have brought forth. Not once did I think this was possible, I started blogging with no agenda except to share my random ramblings. Four years on and I am able to make passive income which has been SUCH a help to my family.

    Having a NT membership is so good – you get to see so many wonderful places! Can’t wait to see your outfit choices! x
