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. […]

So you’re thinking of getting a dog?! Congratulations! Do it. Do it now. It’s the BEST THING EVER.

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 […]

All The Ingredients for A Perfect Short Break

By |April 16th, 2018|Life|0 Comments

I don’t know about you, but I absolutely adore a short break. I look forward to long weekends away or a mid-week escape just as much as I do with a longer trip.

Short breaks offer the chance to abandon everyday life just for a few days. You can get away without breaking the bank and taking too much time off […]

What happened in March? 
March has been such a fantastic month, with so many good things happening.

I celebrated my parent’s 40th wedding anniversary. My amazing dad surprised my mum with a private dining experience with all the family and a trip to Marrakech (I know, my dad is #HusbandGoals!). Our private dining experience in Glasgow was superb and it was pretty […]

Thoughts on Turning Twenty Eight

By |March 22nd, 2018|Life|0 Comments

Hello, Twenty Eight!

Today it’s my birthday and I’m now officially (mortifyingly) in my late twenties. Edging closer and closer to thirty every day. Someone pass me some wine, quick!

I’m mostly kidding (although not about the wine part!). I’m not too bothered about getting older. It’s a privilege that many people don’t get to experience, so I want to make the […]
