Goodwood Revival

Last weekend my Boyfriend and I went to the Goodwood Racecourse for Goodwood Revival which is a vintage car and plane festival with races, shopping and drinking. We got there bright and early to explore and my personal favourites was the Aston Martin display as well as seeing all the old planes including the Spitfire flight

We spent most the day exploring all the different areas which had American cars, motorbikes and helicopter tours. My favourite part of the day was the shopping including the vintage Tesco which sold food in their old labels, I was especially excited about the Opal Fruits! 

Also couldn't resist a trip to the Champagne tent ;)

Will definitely be returning next year hopefully with a bit less wind next time!

Planning For October

So my Mum, Step dad, Boyfriend & I are off to Walt Disneyworld in October for Halloween! I was getting Orlando withdrawals so we all decided it would be te perfect time to go back and visit. We always try and avoid the really kid busy times so we've avoided half term and school vacations. Also I've never been to an American Disney park for Halloween.

We've booked our hotel and after lots of decisions we've decided on Port Orleans Riverside (pictured below) as it was reasonably priced, close to Downtown Disney and looked a lot less "kiddie" than the hotels in the same price bracket. If any readers has stayed there before and have any idea about the rooms please comment as we can't decide between Magnolia Bend Mansion or Alligator Bayou Lodges. 

We're obviously planning on spending most of our time in Disney parks along with a visit to Mickey's not so scary Halloween party. But I am also looking into Universals Fright night as my parents haven't been to Universal yet.

The top of my list is the improved Test track, the rest of New Fantasyland and trying to get a reservation at Be Our Guest restaurant (which I've already tried so hoping to get lucky while we're there!).

Of course I've be having a very drunk Sunday evening at the House of Blues and hoping to bump into some of my old co- workers! So excited!
