Blogette # 8: Spectacular Sunday Brunch at Heritage London

Whew, what a year. But we’re officially into fall and with the ability to do a some more local things, I think this is a good time to resume my blogette writing. Today, I want to tell you about the SPECTACULAR brunch we had this weekend at Heritage Restaurant on Regent Street in London. Rewind…

Blogette #3 – A night at the Globe

During a summer AP English course with Mr. Stamford (my favorite high school teacher), I encountered my love of Shakespeare.

I woke early Sunday morning SUPER excited for the vintage meet…
