Weekday Walks | Christmas Shopping

Every year, The Brainy One and I choose a day in December to go Christmas shopping.  I say Christmas shopping, but what actually happens is this (or something very similar) ...

However, if you want to see something a little classier and dare I say it, a little more tasteful, look no further that London's leading … Continue reading Weekday Walks | London’s Christmas Classics

Five Ways to Give Back this Christmas

Christmas is the season of giving, right?  It can, however, also be the season where everything becomes a little too hectic and you lose sight of what's important.  The Brainy One and I have given to charity all year round for all of our married life, but for the last few years we have stepped … Continue reading Five Ways to Give Back this Christmas
