Travels to the Algarve

My second holiday this summer consisted of a little break to the Algarve. We came here last year and loved Alvor so decided to go back over Luke’s birthday week. We also travelled to Tavira, another cute town the other side of Faro for a few days. 

Tavira was hosting a Mediterranean Diet festival over the few days we were there which was full of street food and craft stalls and it was really exciting. I’d definitely recommend to check whether there’s any festivals or events happening over the time you plan to go to Portugal as there definitely wouldn’t have been as much to do if this wasn’t here. It made it even more exciting. Obviously there’s a million amazing cake shops, ice cream and restaurants to fill your boots with too. Plus, the beach Ihle de Tavira is a short ferry trip away and costs only €1.90 return.

The Best Beaches in Britain?

Now we all love a beach getaway, I know I do! But sometimes there just isn’t the time or the money to be jetting overseas to a nice sandy beach. According to greatbritishbingo.co.uk and their recent survey, the UK’s top 3 beaches are Blackpool coming in first, with Brighton in close succession and Bournemouth in third. There were a whole load of other beaches in this survey of course but these three came out top!

5 Things To Do in Kassiopi – Corfu

I’ve just come back from an amazing week’s break in Greece. We stayed in Kassiopi, Corfu which is near the top of the island. Here’s a few things that I’d massively recommend doing whilst you’re there or in the surrounding areas.

1. Eat at The Three Brothers / Old School Taverna
This is THE best restaurant in Kassiopi for sure! Look at that prawn linguine, it was amazing. Also, a large glass of wine here works out at around £1.70 a glass, pretty good if you ask me. Another really nice place to eat is Tavernaki – their baked feta is the one.

My Top 4 Things To Do in Blackpool

Going abroad for your holidays is always awesome, I’ve just come back from a lush Greek beach holiday which I’m going to be writing up about soon! But you don’t always need to cross any international borders to have a good time. I took a recent trip up to Blackpool for a weekend break, and there was much more to do than I ever imagined. A lot of people probably think of Blackpool as a bit old fashioned and maybe a bit cheesy. But there are activities and sights for all sorts of people, whether you’re a family or a couple. Here are my top things to do if you decide to take a chance and see what it’s all about.

Summer Holiday Wishlist

I’m off on my holidays in just under a month and I’m so excited to get some sunshine in my life. This obviously calls for a summer holiday wish list, of course. I always think White Jeans are a summer staple – they just look so fresh. But no sitting on the grass though! These gorgeous J Brand 811 Mid-Rise Skinny Jeans are first on my wish list for this summer. I put this little dream outfit together with the retro-style Jeepers Peepers Sunglasses, the super cute Topshop Stripe Cami top paired with the clashing ASOS Floral Heels.

My Top 5 Things to Do In Amsterdam

Last weekend Luke and I jumped on the speediest plane ever from East Midlands to Amsterdam (literally an hour!) and we touched down at around 11am on Saturday morning! After a quick train and tram ride into the centre, we arrived at Prinsengracht, our canal that we were staying on. It was zero degrees the whole time so we needed our hats and gloves, that’s for sure. I was searching for a few blog posts with these type of tips but I couldn’t find any that had real-life, real-person things to do!

Holiday Style Inspiration

Today’s post is coming at you scheduled in as I’m currently in sunny Portugal with my boyfriend and the in-laws, hopefully having an amazing time. The only issues I had with going on holiday were, a) I’m terrible at packing and b) I’m terrible at outfit planning and you kind of need to be able to do both to go on holiday when you’re trying to pack light! We do that penny saving thing of only taking hand-luggage which is an awesome idea and it also makes you take less stuff and really think through what you’re going to wear. Hopefully I’ll have a holiday style diary to share with you guys next week when I’m back because I have meticulously planned my evening outfits!

A Cup of Tea in Lacock, Wiltshire

Lacock is one of my most favourite places ever, it’s situated a 10 minute drive away from my parent’s house and it’s so pretty that it’s been used for films such as Harry Potter and Pride & Prejudice! We went for an hour’s walk around it the other day whilst I was at home and had some tea and a little sit down. Here’s a photo diary of the visit!

Travelling to Tokyo, Japan

I’ve been away for just over a week from my little blog and I’ve missed it! I had scheduled a few posts so I wasn’t totally silent but I’ve missed all the blogger chats and constant Twitter! But, I’m back now and I thought I’d share a few little photos of my trip to Tokyo. 
It was amazing but so tiring. Jet lag has got me and I keep waking up really early and then crashing in the late afternoon because I have no idea what the time is! I’m very glad to be home, and we only just made it out of Narita airport because a snow storm was starting, we were actually the last flight out of Tokyo, which is quite scary because I’d spent literally every last Yen and I wouldn’t have been able to survive all Tom Hanks in the Terminal!
