British Prep

all things quintessentially british and prep

I had THE BEST time in London at the weekend catching up with my uni girls and I didn’t stop laughing. 

The highlight was a silent disco at The Southbank Centre on Saturday night. I’ve never been to one before and I just loved it! It’s hilarious seeing people dancing to a completely different rhythm to the song that you’re listening to. Or when you remove your headphones and hear the tuneless chorus of various songs and genres - but that’s the best bit! Everyone just lets go and has a bloody amazing time!

I was fascinated by this little church in the cliff as soon as we arrived in Santorini and was excited to find out that the Ancient Thera walking route bypassed  it. 

We set off in the early morning to avoid the scorching sunshine and it was well worth the effort for the amazing views from the top. We even made a little furry friend, Benji, who walked with us the entire way to the church!

Dinner of stifado and red wine at a local taverna with my mum, followed by cocktails with the ladies from the wedding party. These ‘Watermelon’ cocktails were delicious.

I’ve recently returned from a wonderful week in Santorini, where I attended a family friend’s wedding. It was such a beautiful place and called for plenty of pretty summer outfits! So, throughout this week, I’ll be sharing them with you!

Ollie and I decided to take a drive through the countryside this weekend and headed up to the historic market town of Ross on Wye. 

After looking around its quaint antique, books and art shops, we stumbled upon The Royal Hotel, where we had a spot of lunch outside. It’s a fantastic grade II listed Georgian building with wonderful views over the Wye Valley - and is said to have been frequented by Charles Dickens! The food, however, was pretty average.

Nothing beats the three mile round trail from Parkmill to Three Cliffs Bay. We took Marley for a walk and had a paddle in the sea.

I had such a fun day at Swansea Yacht Club’s annual Pwlldu Picnic with my family.

About 15 boats set sail towards the Gower coast, then we had to get to shore by dingy.

I felt like I’d had a little holiday by the time I’d returned to work the following day!
