The Balance Between Travel and Home

By |July 27th, 2017|Life|0 Comments

My boyfriend Thomas and I bought our first house together last year.

I absolutely love our home. It’s spacious and it’s in a good area. We’ve got it decorated just how we want, we’re close to Glasgow and to our families and friends. It’s pretty much ideal for us at this stage in our lives. We love having our own space, […]

Thinking About India

By |July 24th, 2017|Destinations, India|0 Comments

‘India,’ Wesley murmered, ‘it gets under your skin. Everywhere else seems dull by comparison.’
I recently read a book (The Tea Planter’s Daughter by Janet Macleod Trotter) that had the above quote in it. I couldn’t help but smile and found myself nodding along, agreeing. India definitely does get under your skin.

India has been on my mind a lot lately. As […]

My South of France Packing List (aka Lust List!)

By |July 20th, 2017|Packing Lists & What to Wear In...|0 Comments

It’s less than 4 weeks until I head to the gorgeous South of France and I cannot wait! Naturally, I’ve already started to think about what I’ll pack and wear and what I need to buy. Okay, I probably don’t *need* to buy anything, but that doesn’t mean I don’t want to! After all, everyone in the south of France […]

Why Scotland is One of My Favourite Places to Travel

I’ve had some great trips in Scotland recently and it has undoubtedly solidified my love for my home country. I was born here 27 years ago and have always lived here, but I love travelling here too.

I travelled right up to the north of the country two weeks ago and fell head over heels again. I was stunned by how […]

Driving (Part of) The North Coast 500

By |July 13th, 2017|Destinations, Scotland, Travel Tales|2 Comments

During my trip up to the north of Scotland the thing I was most excited about was driving the North Coast 500. Well, at least a little chunk of it!

If you don’t know what the North Coast 500 is then you are missing out. It’s a 516 mile scenic route that starts and ends at Inverness Castle. Whilst driving the […]

A Contender for the Best Beach in Scotland

By |July 10th, 2017|Destinations, Scotland, Travel Tales|0 Comments

I have something exciting to share!

I’m pretty sure I discovered one of Scotland’s best beaches last week!

During my trip up north with ScotRail I stumbled upon one of the best beaches I’ve ever seen. Certainly the best beach in Scotland I’ve ever come across. There was glorious white sand, tumbling sand dunes, a gorgeous bay, stunning turquoise waters and some of […]

It’s now been 4 weeks since I returned from my trip to Lagos, Portugal. I travelled with Thomas and three of our closest friends for a week of fun in the sun.

We hired a gorgeous villa with four bedrooms and three bathrooms around 15-20 minutes walk from the centre of Lagos. It was in a quiet, residential area and was […]

I’ve been saying for years that I want to discover more of what Scotland has to offer. It’s a fascinating country with beautiful landscapes and so much to explore. In the 27 years I’ve lived here I’ve been slowly but surely working my way around new places. This week, I’ll be spending more time exploring new places in Scotland and I […]

What’s been happening in June? 
June is almost over already, who can believe it!

June has been a little quieter than May and filled with some really fun things. It’s been a really great month!

I saw in the beginning of the month in Portugal, a holiday that was fantastic and I really enjoyed. Then when we returned there was a family party, […]

The Importance of Home

By |June 26th, 2017|Life|0 Comments

As much as I love travel, I also love coming home. I love the feeling of walking through my front door into my very own space.

Home is a place I feel comfortable, creative and happy. It says a lot about me and what’s important to me. The home I’m living in now is especially important, as it’s the first home […]
