Nothing calls to you more on a sunny Saturday, than to grab your favourite person, jump in the car and escape the hustle and bustle of city life to go to pastures new! This was exactly the case last Saturday when myself and my man friend decided to depart Manchester and journey to the beautiful Knutsford to see what delights it had on offer. We were after something EXTRA special as we were celebrating our 4th anniversary too. Little did we know that we would be discovering the jewel in the crown of this gorgeous town in the form of The Lost & Found.

Ah summer, we’ve been expecting you! As the first rays of sun begin to pour through our windows, we can’t wait to dig out our summer clothes and get outside.

All of a sudden those extra pounds from comfort eating throughout the colder months no longer have a place to hide.

Ok fillies, so you’ve heard of Scandi-chic and Nordic-noir! No? Oh, but surely you know about Swedish Midsummer Eve? Yes, if visions of that Shakespearean classic “Midsummer Night’s Dream” starts filling your head with blissful wanderlust…then you are on the right track. Those clever Swedes have got the right idea by celebrating Midsummer Eve in style! Sure, Sweden may be twice the size of the UK but it also does collective celebrating in a way we can only dream of. In fact, Midsummer is second only to Christmas in Sweden when it comes to relaxing, gathering with loved ones and throwing an epic party. But just because we are in ol’ Blighty, that’s no excuse! So it’s time to dance this way and discover how we too can celebrate, Scandi-style!
