Why I Started Blogging | 2nd Blog-iversary

Good Morning World!

2017-19-07-15-16-49

Today, the 28th July 2017 marks the second birthday of my little blog, and the second anniversary of my very first post Good Morning World (which dare I say, is one of my more well written posts) . The day I decided to open up my life or my diary, if you will, to the world. The saying ‘time flies when you’re having fun’ certainly applies here, as despite having down days and unmotivated moments (like any other blogger) I really enjoy writing every post.

Blogging for me, has always been an outlet, a hobby, somewhere where I can talk about whatever pleases me most, not worrying about what others may thing of me. A place that is my little space on the big wide web. It wasn’t created for the purpose of getting followers or views, I mostly wrote it for myself, and I guess I still do. Most people after 2 years of blogging have a huge following and that never really was something I needed, and it was never something I worked towards. I posted my work and was done with it, no self-advertising, no nothing, just hoping that someone would stumble across my little blog and enjoy a good read. Which is slightly a bad thing, as many of my earlier posts, and some now do go unnoticed. But as of the last month I have started to warm to the idea of self-advertising, and the tooting of ones horn over on my twitter.

Despite working on this blog for two whole years now, there are still so many things that I struggle with in the big blogosphere. One of which being flat lays, I am so hopeless at creating them, I always end up having a shadow over my pictures or not having those ever so wonderful blogger props that everyone seems to be using now. This also co-insides with the whole picture thing in general, if you could only see how many posts I have written ready to publish that only need a picture. Its disappointing.

I guess the whole reason for creating this blog was so I could feel a little more important in this world, and in more ways than one it has kept me sane. I am a very introverted person, and mostly the idea of a big group of people does throw a spanner in the works, so when I stumbled upon the blogging world, I felt I slipped in well.

I am so thankful for this wonderful space I have created, and I will not stop doing what I love.

Happy Blogging,

Wondrous Wroxton | Abby Gardens

Good Morning World!

There are several places near me that ooze beauty, one of which being the gorgeous village of Wroxton, which holds Wroxton Abby, which is a College from a University in America. It screams culture, and is the perfect place for a gorgeous summer walk.

I visited this gorgeous ‘American’ gem mid-July and fell in love with the beautiful countryside, gorgeous lakes and wholesome greenery. The gardens are a gorgeous place to bring a picnic and bask in nature. Ho

However, there is one set back for this place, and since it being a college, it is strictly no dogs allowed, so my little pooches had to stay at home for this one.

Exploring my local countryside landmarks are a favourite of mine, and these gardens were certainly worth a visit!

Happy Exploring,

Wondrous Warwickshire | Burton Dassett Hills Country Park

Good Morning World!

Burton Dassett Hills Country Park is located in Southam, Warwickshire; a mere short journey from the famous Shakespearian town of Stratford-Upon-Avon, and 30 minute drive from my hometown in Oxfordshire. The country park is filled with a vast array of rolling hills and spectacular views where you can see for miles into several county’s. The site contains a small woodland and surfaced footpaths, as well as the hills containing a wealth of historical interest including quarry remains.

The hills are a great place for a family picnic and a favourite stop for dog walkers, so there is no doubt Burton Dassett has something for everyone. I first visited this beautiful hill site with my boyfriend where we brought a picnic, lay on the top of a hill and enjoyed each others company; in addition the miles of unexplored green fields means that we needed no encouragement to investigate.

Other attractions at Burton Dassett include an ice cream van and coffee van which come on weekends and school holidays to provide refreshments in the summer which from my experience are much needed. These privileges are a near necessity when visiting these hills, as it being hills there is nearly no shade so its impossible to stay cool, or keep out of the sun. Remember the sun cream guys, especially since it was 30 degree Celsius when we went, which isn’t a lot for some countries but if there is a stereotype about us brits its that we cant handle the heat and love to speak ill of the weather. Haha!

The admission to the hills is free however you do pay £2 for parking which is a little cost for a big day out, and remember to bring exact amount as the machines do not give change.

I could not urge you enough to visit this delightful countryside gem, it really is an exceptional day out for everyone.

Happy Exploring!
