I am a total lover of winter city breaks, especially just before Christmas. I love visiting places when they’re cold, crisp and decorated to the hilt for the festive period. Edinburgh just happens to be one of my absolute favourite cities to visit at Christmas time so last weekend Thomas and I, along with two of our friends headed for […]
I love, love, love winter city breaks (okay, I love any kind of city break!). A winter city break is so different from a sunny, summer city break. It has a totally different feeling and you’ll do loads of different things that you wouldn’t on a summer city break.
I’m actually just back from a fantastic winter city break. I spent the weekend […]
What’s been happening in November?
November has been all about work, work, work after I took 2 and a half weeks off of blogging and my business last month. I’ve been working on a few nice client projects and planning blogging and client work for the run-up to Christmas.
I’ve also been working hard getting our brand new house into shape. We’re […]
Christmas is approaching so quickly this year! It feels like it’s crept up on us all of a sudden and if you’re anything like me you won’t have done all your Christmas shopping yet. Wondering what to get your mum/dad/brother/sister/boyfriend/girlfriend/whoever? I’ve got some ideas for you.
I truly believe that travel is one of the best gifts you can give someone. […]
Packing light is kind of like the holy grail. Everyone wants to be able to achieve it, but actually doing it can seem impossible. You want to fit everything into a carry on but just can’t figure out how.
I’d far rather carry a smaller bag when I travel as it just makes things so much easier. No dragging a big […]
There are few things in life better than checking into a luxury hotel. Staying in a fantastic hotel always makes me happy, as there are so many things to enjoy that you don’t have at home!
I always like to make the absolute most of my time when I’m staying somewhere fabulous, and these are the things I love the most…
With the end of 2016 fast approaching (like, seriously fast. Time slow down, please!) I’ve started to think about the places I’d like to visit next year. Everyone else is thinking about Christmas and I’m busy thinking about where I can book flights to. Standard.
2016 has been a year with lots of travel, but still not as much as I’d […]
When someone says travel you probably think of jumping on a plane and going to somewhere far-flung and different. You might think of somewhere you’ve never been before. Somewhere Other, challenging and thousands of miles from the comfort of home. Those experiences are great, trust me. I live for experiences like that. But recently I’ve been coming around more to […]
I am a planner. I always have been. It’s in my DNA to plan, plan and plan a little bit more. I love the feeling of being organised and that extends to when I travel. Before a trip I’ll always spend quite a bit of time researching what I want to see, do, eat and drink in a destination. So, […]
It’s officially November, which means it’s time to start getting excited about Christmas! Woohoo!
I absolutely adore Christmas and get to ridiculously excited about it every single year. I’m such a big kid and Christmas markets are my idea of heaven. I love strolling around the stands, seeing whats on offer, buying Christmas decorations, heating up with delicious hot chocolate and […]
