Monthly Round-Up: June Edition

By |July 5th, 2018|Life|0 Comments

What’s been happening in June? 
June has been a bit of a whirlwind and seemed to pass by in a blur. The weather has been absolutely stunning for the majority of the month and it’s made me love calling Scotland my home even more than I normally do. I’m so grateful to live here, especially when the sun makes an appearance!

Reclaiming My Weekends

By |June 25th, 2018|Life|2 Comments

As a freelancer, I have the ability and freedom to work whenever I want…to a point. Of course I have to meet deadlines for clients and extra things crop up occasionally that are urgent, but for the most part, I can work to my own schedule.

In the past, this has been both a blessing and a curse. A blessing because […]

The Problem With Being A Travel Blogger

By |June 21st, 2018|Life|0 Comments

For the most part being a travel blogger is great. Like, really great. I get to visit some amazing places and see and do things I never really thought possible. Then, I get to write about the places I visit and the things I’ve done there. I truly love writing, so for me, that’s one of the best parts.

But, the […]

Why is it So Hard to Choose Where to Travel?

By |June 18th, 2018|Life|0 Comments

At the moment I have very few upcoming trips planned. Usually, I like to have lots of trips booked to give me plenty to be excited about and look forward to. But, at the moment, that’s not the case. Why I hear you ask? Well, recently I’ve found myself really struggling to choose where to travel next.

This is a new […]

Six Years Self-Employed

By |June 7th, 2018|Life|0 Comments

June is always a little bit of a special month for me – it marks the anniversary of me becoming self-employed. This year, I’m celebrating six years of self-employment! SIX YEARS! Wow!

I graduated from university six whole years ago. In some ways it feels like much longer than that and in others it feels like just a few months ago.

Something […]

Monthly Round-Up: May Edition

By |June 4th, 2018|Life|0 Comments

What happened in May? 
You might remember last month my beloved dog Ben was unwell with pancreatitis. Unfortunately, he’s not quite recovered yet and I’ve had a few expensive trips to the vet with him for more scans, blood tests, medication and even an ultrasound (yes, they did have to shave his tummy and it’s pretty much the cutest thing I’ve […]

Why Travel is a Form of Self-Care

By |May 28th, 2018|Life|0 Comments

Self-care has become something of a buzz phrase in the last year or so and shows no signs of disappearing off the radars. If you don’t know what self-care is (have you been living under a rock?), it describes “any necessary human regulatory function which is under individual control, deliberate and self-initiated.”

Practising self-care means different things for different people. […]

What is Travel?

By |May 7th, 2018|Life|0 Comments

The title of this blog post might be throwing you off a little. What is travel?

Well, duh, it’s…travel. It’s obvious isn’t it?

You’d be forgiven for thinking this. But, when you *really* think about it, what actually counts as travel?

Does visiting a new city for an afternoon count as travel? Does heading to an all-inclusive resort and not setting foot outside […]

Monthly Round-Up: April Edition

By |April 30th, 2018|Life|0 Comments

What happened in April? 
Phew. April has been a bit of a hectic month, despite not having many major plans before the month started.

At the beginning of the month, Thomas was away in America to see The Masters golf tournament for a week. That meant I had a week to really get stuck into work and some new client projects. I […]
