Exploring Oxford

While the highlight of our most recent trip to the UK was certainly London, we had two other stops on our trip that were worth the visit!

Something Old, Something New - Experiencing London Again

As you may have gathered from my recent travel posts, London is one of my favourite cities.

I have so many things I love to do when I'm there, like visit the British Museum, or spend the morning at Borough Market.

I have restaurants I love to visit and sights I love to see; I couldn't wait to go on our most recent trip to show my favourite parts of London to Kris, who hadn't been since he was much much younger (and didn't love it)

But some of the best moments of our trip were spent experiencing new things for both of us, in this city I've always loved

Experiencing the old and the new together made the trip that much more special.

Irresistible Me Hair Extensions

This post was sponsored by Irresistible Me! All opinions are mine alone. However only some of the hair in the photos was grown on my head. xxox Laura @ Cook, Wine and Thinker!

Happy Thursday!

I'm taking a quick detour from my recent UK travel posts today to talk about something I'm really excited about.

Don't worry, I have two more Travel Posts coming to you next week, but get excited because today I want to talk to you about something that has solved a serious problem of mine.

Guys, today I want to talk to you about clip on hair extensions

Exploring the British Museum

One of the best things about travelling is the opportunity to expand and enlighten your mind.

If you're not going to experience new things, learn new things, discover new things... then you may as well just be at home in your sweatpants watching Netflix.

With no disrespect to Netflix of course... because that is 100% what I plan on doing when I finish writing this post.

When you're visiting London, there are plenty of opportunities to learn and explore; but the crowning jewel is the British Museum.

How To Spend A Morning In London - Borough Market

London is one of my favourite travel destinations. 

The sights, the sounds, the pulse of the city. I just love every minute of being there and it's always high on my travel list. 

Each time I go I experience new and exciting things, but there's one thing I make sure I do EVERY time I'm in town (and sometimes more than once):

Start my morning at Borough Market.

Stove Top Turkey Chili

Turkey day has come and gone in Canada!

Our American friends still have a few more weeks to wait, but all across the Great White North, Canadians are unbuttoning our pants and trying not to feel TOO guilty about indulging on that second piece of pie.

One of the upsides of Thanksgiving, or any big holiday meal, are the leftovers! Unfortunately, a girl can only eat so much roast turkey before she's had enough... so what to do?

A popular option is soup, but with the days getting colder and colder I recommend something a little heartier. Why not make Turkey Chili?

London Calling - What's in my Suitcase

Kris and I are in England this week, and today is our first full day in London.

Obviously I'm writing to you from the past! Since my only blog activities this week for CW&T are to take pictures and make notes.

Anyway, we're in London and loving life (I hope!)

What's In My Carry On

Kris and I are vacationing in England this week.

With family and friends to visit, and lots of things to see, we've been really looking forward to this trip.

Flying overseas always requires a bunch of planning. Hotels, trains, activities, timelines, but also knowing what to bring with you! Not just clothes (though I'll get to that...) but what STUFF you need to get you through your long flight so you can hit the ground running when you land.

That's right, today we're talking about how to tackle the Red Eye - What to pack in your carry on for a great flight, smooth landing, and a great first day!
