We’re Engaged!

By |December 10th, 2018|Life|0 Comments

I said yes! 
On Saturday 1st December Thomas asked me to marry him outside of the restaurant in Glasgow where we had our very first date five and a half years ago.

It was a complete shock and, if I’m completely honest, I don’t even really remember what he said or what I said in return!

He had told me we were going […]

What’s been happening in November? 
Eeeek it’s December already! My Christmas tree is up, I’ve bought most of the gifts on my list and I’m officially ready to enjoy all the festive good times.

November has been a fantastic month. I’ve been to two ice hockey matches supporting my local Glasgow team, cheered on the Scottish rugby team who were playing South […]

Why I Don’t Like to Travel at Christmas

By |November 15th, 2018|Life|0 Comments

I know, I know, it’s still November. Usually I wouldn’t be writing about Christmas quite so early, but it’s something I’ve been thinking about a lot recently.

Christmas travel is big business. There are loads of people who take the Christmas holidays as a great excuse to travel and I can totally see why. But I don’t like to travel at […]

My Journey of Being Self-Employed

By |November 12th, 2018|Life|2 Comments

There are around 4.8 million self-employed people in the UK. That sounds like a lot of people, doesn’t it?

It doesn’t sound so much when you say it like this, though: self-employed people make up about 15% of the workforce of the country.

Just 15%? That doesn’t sound like a lot at all.

But when I think about it, apart from other bloggers […]

Monthly Round-Up: October Edition

What’s been happening in October? 
I hate to be that person, but how the heck is it November already? It feels like it was New Year not so long ago and now we’re getting closer and closer to the festive period.

October has been a really fantastic month. It started off with an unexpected and slightly spontaneous trip to Portugal with Thomas […]

The Perfect Amount of Travel

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

What is the perfect amount of travel?

Well, obviously it’s going to be different for everyone. Some people like continuous travel and always being on the road. Others like to travel a few times a month and others are content with getting away a few times a year. Everyone is different, after all.

There are many factors that can influence how much […]

Why I Love Coming Home After Travel

By |October 8th, 2018|Life|0 Comments

As much as I love to travel it’s always nice to return home at the end of a trip. Whether I’ve been away from home for weeks, or just a few days it’s always nice to be back (even if it usually means coming home to dreary Scottish weather!).

It’s nice to come home to my house that I absolutely adore and […]

Why I’m Grateful to Have a Regular Weekend Getaway

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

As I flopped down into the impossibly comfortable bed I found myself smiling. I was still smiling contentedly a few moments later when I started rubbing my night cream into my face, soothing it after the blustery sea air had battered on the beach a few hours earlier.
I felt happy, content and comfortable.
It was the end of another day at […]

What a fantastic month September has been! There have been trips abroad and in Scotland, birthdays to celebrate, more trips planned and catch ups with friends and family.

The month started off with me flying to Portugal to meet Thomas for a holiday together. We had an amazing week staying in Vilamoura and travelling throughout the region […]

Monthly Round-Up: August Edition

By |September 3rd, 2018|Life|0 Comments

What’s been happening in August? 
It’s been a pretty packed month. I watched Thomas’ older brother get married, picked our bridesmaids dresses for my brother’s upcoming wedding, visited work clients and had some gorgeous meals out with friends and family.

August also involved a dreamy long weekend away at Archerfield Estate lodges. Those of you who are regular readers here will know […]
