December (2016!) Round-Up

By |January 2nd, 2017|Life|0 Comments

What happened in December? 
I know it’s incredibly cliche, but I can hardly believe we’re into 2017 already! December seemed to pass by in a complete whirlwind and I barely had time to catch my breath!

Thomas and I hosted our first Christmas Day in our brand new house and it was…hectic. Being the hostess is damn hard work but we managed […]

By |December 19th, 2016|Life|2 Comments

I know 2016 isn’t *quite* over yet, but I wanted to put this little post together looking back at my best moments of the year. These aren’t necessarily all travel related, but the majority are.

It’s been a really great year and I can’t wait to see what 2017 has in store.
Marbella for my birthday! 

Thomas whisked me away to Marbella, […]

5 Perfect Ingredients for a Winter City Break

By |December 5th, 2016|Life, Travel Tips|0 Comments

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 […]

November Round-Up

By |December 1st, 2016|Life|0 Comments

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. […]

Where I’d Like to Travel in 2017

By |November 17th, 2016|Life, Travel Tales|6 Comments

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 […]

Why Travel Doesn’t Have to be International

By |November 14th, 2016|Life, Travel Tales|4 Comments

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 […]

5 Places Around the World I Could Live

By |October 27th, 2016|Life, Travel Tales|1 Comment

Moving into my shiny new home has recently got me thinking about other places around the world I think I could call home. Obviously, I’ve just signed on the dotted line for a big fat mortgage here in Scotland, so this wouldn’t be anytime soon but, never say never.

Whenever I visit anywhere new I always ask myself whether I think […]
