What Wegan Did Next: The South Part 2!

We recently blogged about our first week in the South when we visited back in May, so how about you find out what we did for the rest of our time?

For the second half of our trip we headed to Myrtle Beach to soak up the sun and enjoy some quality time with Whitney's mother. We stayed right by the beach, we loved it! But who wouldn't!!




I had my first visit to the Melting Pot, courtesy of a voucher they sent due to Whitney's review of the restaurant. I loved the french kiss martini and the cheese, but of course the chocolate at the end was ahhh-ma-zing!!


We just so happened to be down at Mytle Beach as Bike Week was happening.. at first I expected to see lots of cyclists.. oh how I was wrong...!! Haha. We even spotted Harleys Angels!

We consumed a lot more food, and I even tried fried courgettes/ zucchini's!! 

We had a very tasty meal at Toscana, a highly rated Italian Restaurant in Myrtle beach, we recommend it if you're ever in the area. I just love eggplant parmesan!!


We visited the cutest ice cream stand that attracted all walks of life, I was so busy wanting to get a picture of my ice cream that it ended up dripping down my hand and all over me.. a southern lady laughed her head off at me!!


Look at this handsome boy after he had a hair cut...

We made sure to stock up at Victoria Secret and Bath and Body Works whilst we had the chance! The sales assistant at B&BW loved our accents and thought Whitney was English! As did many others!

We had a mini impromptu What Wegan Wore photoshoot..

We had our nails done Southern style at a local nail salon, who loves the Chanel design we had?!


We even spotted Aegi in the sky!!

Before departing South Carolina, we squeezed in some sunbathing by the pool.. of course!

Before we knew it, time was running out. We ended up extending our stay by a day due it being bank holiday back in the UK which meant we had the monday off work! We had a last dinner out with Whitney's mom and her friends. We got SO stuffed we literally looked 5 months pregnant! Worth it though!

Then it was time to say our goodbyes... we absolutely did not want to leave and love living the American life!!

One last sweet tea...

 Our first stop was to New York and we had a bumpy start. The plane had to turn around as the wheels would not go back up... needless to say on the next flight, we calmed ourselves down...


 Then before we knew it, we were back in the UK, reunited with my family and back to our life in the UK! Until next time America..

Hello Equal Marriage!!

Today is an extraordinary day, a day that we never thought we would see, nor would see so soon or quickly in our lives! Not ever a year after we have our Civil Partnership, gay marriage is officially signed into law. Today the Queen gave Royal Assent to the Marriage (Same Sex Couples) Act. After it's many stages, this was the very last step in order to make gay marriage as law in the UK. We are soooo excited/happy/ecstatic/ that we finally have equal marriage in the UK! It means that our wedding AKA 'Wegging' in 2015 will be legal! Now I guess- we best get planning?!

"You may now kiss the bride!"

Thank you to the UK, Stonewall, LGBT allies, Parliament and the Queen!

London Pride 2013- Weganers + Hair on Fire!

Just over a year since Whitney officially moved to the UK, we attended our second London Pride together on 29 June. Time definitely had flown past since the last attendance, and this year we decided we would use it to be our very first preview of our Wegan Merchandise. Yes, we have designed some t-shirts!! We are so excited to launch these, and if only two of you wear them, it will make us more than happy!
We had an absolutely amazing time at Pride, and it was just as summer had finally arrived in the UK, what a glorious sunny day! As per usual, we missed the parade, woops we will make it one day! We managed to locate Zoe pretty much as soon as we arrived, by pure accident. (Whitney's fellow American friend who is in Pink Singers London's LGBT choir). 

We had some super lovely Weganer's come up and say hello, which was just a crazy moment seeing as the last year no-one recognised us! We really didn't expect many to say hi so it was a lovely surprise, and we must say- you're all SO lovely! It really warms our hearts and means so much to us that you have been following us on our journey. You nearly made us cry (ok Megan is the overly emotional one). So if you ever do randomly spot us, please don't be shy- say hi! & maybe make Megan cry ;)

After hanging out at Trafalgar Square we headed onto the craziness and chaos that is Soho at Pride! So many LGBT people adorning the street, it is a great sight to see! We managed to track down our Welsh/ American friends Christine and Sarah. Sarah in fact is our t-shirt designer and got to see them in the flesh for the very first time! We love them SO much and hope you do too. We are working at getting our t-shirts ready online ASAP, so look out for the announcement!

After a few drinks, it was finally time to get some food into our stomachs so we headed to the Chinese Dim Sum restaurant, Ping Pong. We went to the one by the Southbank for Whitney's birthday and loved the cocktails and food. This time was a slightly different experience due to a cocky bartender thinking his amazing cocktail skills may turn a couple of married lesbians. Um no. To add to the epic fail, he insisted that we drink the shots that he made us through a straw- which were lit on fire (!!) which resulted in Sarah's hair getting caught on fire!! Yes another hair on fire incident, and it wasn't Whitney. It was a pretty shocking incident as it went right up her neck and she unfortunately got burnt, along with hair loss! Absolutely mortifying. Unfortunately the restaurant did little to compensate apart from free shots and a gel to cool the burn. Ping Pong are awaiting to hear the story officially so we will be contacting them shortly. Nonetheless, we managed to continue with a couple more of Flaming Passionfruit cocktails and some tasty food.



Poor Sarah!
Flaming Passionfruit is still amazing though... just mind the flame!

We raved it up with a stop for ice cream on the way home!
We can't believe that London Pride is over for another year. Hopefully we'll make some more Pride's the the future. What's for sure is that we will always continue to have pride in our daily lives as femme lesbians in love as wife and wife.
