We're All Going on a... Summer Holiday...!

We have spent a really long time planning our summer holiday this year,  due to
 the hectic last couple of months we have both endured finishing our dissertations, 
we felt we deserved a treat. We considered Paris, Lisbon and even Barcelona. 
However when the opportunity arose for us to flat sit for a month in Harriett's
 favourite city Berlin, how could we turn such an offer down!

So from the 23rd of May, we will be living in Prenzlauer Berg, trawling the flea 
markets, terrorising the handsome men and baffling the locals with our crazy 
outfits. We know we have already asked  for advice on things to check out before 
one of our previous trips. However we are still curious to know whether we have
any lovely Berliner readers who would like to meet up, laugh at our terrible German
and drink prosecco on a paddle boat on the Teirgarten Lake!

For now we will leave you with some snaps of us from our trip last June. We've left 
out all the ones of us swinging round lap posts at six in the morning in a vain attempt
to keep up the allusion on this blog that we are actually classy ladies. We hope you
all have exciting summer holidays planned too! 

Lots of Love
Harriett & Aimee xx


  1. I am dying of envy. Have the best time, ladies! xx

  3. Hey, I live in Prenzlauer Berg! So, please don't be alarmed if a strange pregnant lady stares and grins at you as you walk past on the street.

  4. I'd just like everyone to know that Harriett has a massive crush on Cliff Richard. Ax

  5. Harriet looks just like Paula Yates *swoon, swoon* in the second last pic.

    Are you ladies always fashion heaven? Do you ever have days in a leisure suit and no makeup?


  6. Hugely jealous that you get to flat sit somewhere as fabulous as Berlin. My housesitting adventures have gotten me as far as a couple of suburbs away!

  7. Sounds amazing! I'm sure you two will have a brilliant time.
