Pumpkin Picking For Halloween!

Pumpkin Picking at Kenyon Hall

Location: Kenyon Hall Farm, Warrington, England

It's just one week to go until the spookiest occasion of the year arrives, so in preparation yesterday I headed over to Kenyon Hall Farm to visit their pumpkin patch! Based in Warrington, the farm was pretty hard to get to and I and my boyfriend resorted to climbing over gates and cutting through fields to get there, but once we arrived it was well worth the epic journey. The farm has a pumpkin patch where you can pick your own, a tent with loads of pre-picked pumpkins to choose from as well as a maze to wander around and get lost in. Choosing your own pumpkin fresh from the patch and carving it yourself is definitely the ultimate autumnal activity in the run-up to Halloween, and wrapped up wearing my fluffy coat and boots I loved embracing the excitement of being at the farm!

Three Things Before 2016 Ends

Farm Land Warrington

Location: Culcheth, Warrington, England

My favourite time of year has finally rolled around, and with melty hot chocolates, blankets and TV shows and weekend visits to farms and festivals, I am in the full swing of Autumn! After jetting off to Ghana back in January, and arriving home as Spring begun, I've actually been craving cold weather and the chance to wrap up with a scarf and mittens. This year has been a strange year for me, I've felt unusually overwhelmed about turning twenty-three and posed the question "what am I actually doing with my life" far more times than I care to admit. It's taken a lot of months of hard work and hard thinking to figure out what it is exactly that I do want and how to put my plans into action. Although I'll admit, I'm quite excited for 2016 to just be done and dusted, there're three things to keep me going.

Why Your Next City Break Should Be To Rome

The Colosseum, Rome

Location: The Colosseum, Rome, Italy

I'd wanted to visit Rome ever since I was a kid, watching the Sabrina Goes to Rome movie for the first time. In the film, Sabrina dates a dreamy Italian guy who brings her a rose every day, and all of the paintings come to life, plus she has a magical kiss in front of the Trevi fountain. Okay, so before setting off I first had to convince myself that I'm not actually a teenage witch, or in a film for that matter, but I'd still set my expectations pretty high. Rome to me seemed somewhere full of romance and magic, and upon visiting the incredible city, it didn't disappoint. From its incredible architecture and art to its open and friendly atmosphere (plus amazing food), Rome is a unique place that needs to be on your city break list if it isn't already.

Autumn Comfort Food | Pho Manchester

Pho Restaurant, Manchester

Location: Pho Vietnamese Street Food, The Corn Exchange, Manchester

During the colder, Autumnal months, most of us seek to binge out on as much comfort food as we can get our hands on. I'm no exception to this unspoken rule, and after hearing a couple of recommendations about the Vietnamese Street Food chain, Pho, it was time to treat my taste buds to something different. Based in the recently refurbished Corn Exchange, a huge luxury food court in the heart of Manchester city centre, Pho is a unique dining experience offering a range of authentic Vietnamese dishes, giving you the chance to experience Vietnamese dining as it should be.

Views | Radio City Tower Liverpool

Radio City Tower Liverpool

Location: Radio City Tower, Houghton Street, Liverpool

Last Sunday, I spent a day in one of my favourite cities in the world, my university city and a place I hold in my heart: Liverpool. Every time I visit the city, I always fill my time up with as much as possible; whether it's strolling down the docks, splurging money in Liverpool One or enjoying one of the cities many quirky bars and cafes for a few cocktails and a spot of lunch. This time, I met my friend who asked me if I'd ever been up the Radio City Tower, and to even my own surprise, I hadn't. If you're looking for an activity to do in Liverpool that is cheap and cheerful, a trip up Radio City Tower Liverpool might just be the one for you.
