July in England - Latitude festival with the best of the best (because I'm getting married)

Having celebrated Cam's Hen (that's bachelorette this side of the pond) a couple of weeks ago it was my turn. Agreeing to have it under canvas at a music festival in a park in Suffolk might have gone terribly terribly wrong -  But the weather was perfect, Camilla had managed to get us upgraded to some pretty swanky pink moon glamping courtesy of Mumsnet (think a tee pee, proper loos, hair dryers, mirrors and no need to pack sleeping bags. perfect. thanks Mumsnet!) and my Bridesmaids were (surprisingly well) prepared for every eventuality.

July in England - Brighton Pier, pebbled beaches and far too many oysters.

Sometimes, when you haven't seen a good friend for a really really long time supper isn't enough. Steph and I have been friends since she rescued me from social outcast-ery (word?) aged 13 at school in England. I arrived thinking I was pretty fashion forward in frayed patchwork jeans and Steph took it upon herself to set me straight. I've been in her debt ever since.

July in England - London I love you: reunited with some of my favourite people for the first Hen party of the year.

Since I landed on this side of the Atlantic just over two weeks ago I've been to and from Amsterdam, catching up with local friends in Surrey and communing with our family dog. I'd been for a couple of fun lunches and suppers but definitely hadn't immersed myself fully back in the capital until this weekend for the Hen party of the decade.
