Are You Going To London’s First Ever Floating Jazz Festival?

Iced tea, gosh we flippin’ love it. It saves us from hangovers and Britain’s occasional heatwave, and it kinda reminds us of being on holiday. But we must admit, our heads were somewhat turned back in February as the UK’s first and only cold brew tea bags, made using real tea leaves were released and, as if by magic, all of our Lipton dreams came true. We’re not the only ones to have got ourselves in a tizzy either as, this weekend, Real Iced Tea by Lipton are throwing an epic jazz inspired floating festival called Jazz On The Water which, unsurprisingly, will be London’s […]

After four years of living in Brighton, I finally caved in to join the long ol’ commute back and forth each day to the big smoke. Fast-forward to now, when the opportunity arose to spend the weekend glamping and being a tourist in the city where my heart lies, Brighton, I jumped – quite literally – at it. Not only did it allow me to go into full on tourist mode but it meant leaving a little earlier to miss the rush hour commuters.  What actually is glamping?  Glamping has hugely been on the rise over the last few years, with more and […]
