trip-to-florida-orlando-daytona-beach

With the abundance of Spring sunshine this year in London, I’ve really been thinking about my next trip to Florida, my home state. I made it there a few times in 2014, and my last trip was this past January. What would really mean the most to me is having Mr. Sunny join me next time. He has never made a trip to Florida. He did spend a year living in California in his early Continue Reading »

This is why I am super excited to share with you a new discovery on London’s restaurant scene that will blow your mind. I. Am. Not. Kidding. When I received the invitation to enjoy a Continue Reading »

With our love of Japanese food and Mr. Sunny’s love of pubs, we both jumped at the chance to check out one of London’s latest food and drink venues- The Woodstock Pub. The concept is intriguing. The idea is an ‘extensive Japanese led drinks menu’ in which the venue acts as a ‘pit stop for a pint and skewer’ before heading home after work. After having an exceptionally delicious and fun experience there, I can absolutely Continue Reading »

Why should you put a walking tour at the top of your things to do in Kingston Upon Thames? When I was invited to spend a few days in this richly historic area of Greater London, I learned so many fantastic secrets that I missed when exploring on my own. In fact, that’s exactly what happened my first night there. I started my visit to Kingston at Warren House, a gorgeous Victorian mansion. I enjoyed their Continue Reading »

Do you like luxury, excellent food and serenity? Then you would love the Warren House Afternoon Tea, staycation and more. With so many options for staycations and afternoon tea in London, it’s tough to choose where to go when you have limited amounts of time.

I opened an email recently that ‘was so good I almost peed my pants.’ That’s right. The email offered me two tickets to a show at the English National Opera in exchange for a feature on the Sunny in London blog. I had a choice among Queen of Spades, Carmen or Pirates of Penzance. This is super exciting to me because attending an opera is high on my list of things to do in my life. Continue Reading »

In fact, Mr. Sunny and I had an exclusive opportunity to preview their new Head Chef’s first menu aboard the ship, which is a party of the City Cruises fleet in Continue Reading »
