Meet Natalie

Hello, and welcome to my blog. If you like cake, love to travel and don't mind the occasional lifestyle or family type post, then you're in the right place. I'm a Mum to a 14-year-old son called Coby and we live in Berkshire but I'm originally from the beautiful city of York. I adore to eat out and regularly blog about restaurants in my local town of Reading and further afield, so you'll find quite a lot of those types of posts on here too.
