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. […]

How Getting a Dog Changes How You Travel

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

Getting my beloved dog, Ben is, without a doubt, one of the best things that has ever happened to me. I got him when I was 16. He’s now 11 and a half years old and feels like he’s been by my side […]

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 […]

Monthly Round-Up: March Edition

By |April 2nd, 2018|Life|0 Comments

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 […]

March Reads: Books I’m Taking on Holiday

By |March 5th, 2018|Life|2 Comments

It’s now just over a week until I head off to Bulgaria on my first ever ski holiday! I’m totally excited and am getting everything organised for the trip.

One thing I always make sure to take on holiday with me is my trusty Kindle. I’m a total bookworm and love to get lost in a book at any time. Reading […]

Monthly Round-Up: February Edition

By |March 1st, 2018|Life|0 Comments

What’s been happening in February? 
February has been a bit of a hectic month. Three members of Thomas’ family have all been in the hospital (with unrelated illnesses) at some point over the course of the month. This has meant plenty visits to hospitals etc.

Aside from that, we made it to another ice hockey match (Braehead Clan fans!) with a bunch […]

Thoughts Before My First Ski Trip

By |February 26th, 2018|Life|2 Comments

It’s now just two weeks until my first ever ski trip! I’m excited, nervous and a bit unsure of what exactly it’s going to be like.

We’re heading to Pamporovo in Bulgaria, one of the southernmost ski resorts in Europe. I haven’t been to Bulgaria before so visiting this new country is something I’m really looking forward to.

The only other wintery […]
