When we usually think ‘holiday’ a lot of us would automatically think of sandy beaches and fruity cocktails, right? Definitely. But, what if you’re a bit Greece-d out, like me? I love Europe but this year I felt a little bit unfulfilled, like I’d not really seen anything that new. It was gorgeous and relaxing and fab but I still felt a bit like I needed something new.
If you’ve seen my ‘why I want to move to Leeds‘ or 24h in London posts then you’ll know that we like to check out cities in the UK that we don’t live in! I just think it’s great to know your way around as many cities as you can because, why not? You never know what opportunities will arise and it’s cool to get to know other places just in case! This weekend we headed to Birmingham for the Christmas market to kick off the festive season.
Work/life balance has been a bit crazy recently but it definitely has some really great perks. I’ve been having to travel to London a few times a week recently and luckily, one of these trips happened to fall on a Friday which was super close to one of my oldest friends’ birthdays so I stopped for the weekend and for her birthday brunch!
Notts has got a lot of things associated with it, from Robin Hood to lace and mr Boots himself (all hail the king of highstreet beauty, am I right?) to crazy things like calling people duck and bacon rolls cobs. It is a cob, by the way. I’m 100% a Nottingham girl now and a cob shop is one of the best inventions ever – hands down.

Croatia is somewhere that is seriously on my to see list when it comes to heading abroad. I’ve seen so many people venture there this year, I’m dying to go! The diversity of Croatia is amazing. From small fishing villages to ancient Roman old towns, quiet sandy beaches and rolling waves to bustling harbours, we can find it all on the Croatian coast. I’ve been having a look into places to go and I’ve found my top 5 on the Croatian list so wanted to share it with you.
A Caribbean vacation is a popular desire for loads of travellers. That’s pretty vague thought, the Caribbean is made up of a lot of different islands and countless appealing destinations. It can be difficult to narrow down the options, particularly given that most every place you Google in the entire area looks similarly idyllic. The secret is that all of these destinations are spectacular, so to some extent it’s not really necessary to make up your mind. Here are five places you have to go, along with a few reasons why!
I love a photo diary and since picking up my new Olympus Pen ELP7 I’ve enjoyed snapping a lot more than I did with my bigger DSLR camera. I wanted to share some of my favourite shots and a couple of great things that we did during our little Cretan adventure in this mini photo diary.
The buildings in the old town of Rethymno are super beautiful against the blue-sky backdrop.
During our recent visit to Rethymno, Platanias and Chania in Crete we did some pretty awesome things. We’re not the usual sit around the pool holiday-makers. Of course, we love to relax but we also love to get out and so some fun and exciting activities that we can’t do at home. Here are three of the best things to do if you ever venture to north Crete!
