January in Instagrams

          Photographs courtesy of Jade’s instagram, Cory’s instagram and our instagram. The first month of 2014 certainly wasn't what I had anticipated. I've been struggling with some issues related to my UC. Lets just say I'm happy to say goodbye to January and am welcoming February with open arms. My birthday is on Monday so the mister and I will be celebrating this weekend. I'm looking forward to hearing Colin Meloy...

Dapper & Wise

On a rather unusually sunny afternoon in late January we had our first visit to Dapper & Wise. They opened their doors just a short time ago and are now roasting beans and serving up hot cups everyday of the week, except Sundays. It is owned by the brilliant folks who first opened Insomnia Coffee, two family friendly coffee houses where they welcome live music, displays of...

A Morning Stroll to Buckingham Palace

While we hadn't planned to go to Buckingham Palace (crowds aren't really our thing), but it seemed silly not to when we noticed on a map that we were in walking distance to it from where we were staying. We figured we would fit in a morning stroll over to it early in the morning. The air was cold so we bundled up and headed...

Notting Hill and Portobello Road

For years, I had avoided watching the movie Notting Hill. I'm a grump that way. But Jade kept asking me to watch it with her and finally I gave in. Now we've watched it countless times together. It's a ridiculously charming story about a average English bloke who falls in love with a super famous American movie star and all the quandaries they face to...

A Sweet Sunday at Little t Baker in Union Way

I'm finding more and more as I get older that I have a particular taste in places I like to hang out. I want the space to be relatively well lit with decent natural light, or at least some unique and charming indoor lighting. That might be because I know what horrible lighting can do to a photo-shoot you are dying to come out perfectly....

Hyde Park and Kensington Gardens

How beautiful it was to look out the window of our suite and gaze upon the gated entrance to Hyde Park. We had spent a few moments walking around Hyde Park Corner before tea a day or two before, but we really hadn't had the time to go deep into the park itself. Buttoning up our coats and slinging our cameras on, we started into the park...

Shake Shack at Covent Garden

I think that has become pretty obvious by the things we post on Endlessly Enraptured most of the time that Jade and I like to explore and discover new places to eat and take in local culture. We have both been wanting to try Shake Shack for ages now, since seeing the cheesy, fresh burgers covering our instagram feeds. When we found out last summer that...

Barons Court

We spent a lot of the time our first few days in and around our hotel while in London. Between the ridiculously lovely suite we were staying in and the crippling jet lag, it was difficult to leave. We finally had recovered enough by day four to wander beyond the realms of our hotel's district to outlying neighborhoods. We hopped on the tube and explored...

Dinner at Apsleys

This post was sponsored by The Lanesborough, a St. Regis Hotel. Follow them on Facebook and Instagram In my lifetime I have not been able to take part in a lot of the finer things in life. In fact, before meeting Jade, I would consider my quality of appetite and overall quality of life to be below average. I was a young bachelor who grew up sheltered in the woods...

Barista (Northwest 23rd)

When we were in London, I loved the feeling I got when going on adventures through the rows of centuries old buildings.  They loomed overhead while the sun peaked over their rooftops. Mixed in with all of the old there was plenty of new shops and restaurants you could visit too,  nestled inside or between all of the rich historical buildings. I don't get the...
