Battersea Park Firework Display

It is not very often that I am blown away. I would not say I am a negative person, but it takes a fair amount to impress me, and in the past fireworks haven’t been one of those things. Sure, they’re super pretty; yep, I like the cool colours. But let’s be honest, every display…

A Vegan Delight: Wagamama

So for the first few days of my newfound veganism, the other half was away. I was cooking for myself, exploring new products and giving soy milk a go.  However now that he has returned to the U.K., life gets a little harder. Meals for two (one vegan one not) are not really doable. Yesterday…

Hello, I am a failure

So surprise surprise, my attempt at the 30 day writing challenge was a disaster. I did not complete all 30 days, and the posts I did write were often late. However I am not surprised in myself.  Despite this failure, I’ve decided to take on another, even bigger challenge. One that I am destined to…

My Insecurities

Today is Day 19 of the travel writing challenge and the prompt is an insecurity of mine. I have unsuccessfully used my week off to keep up to date on this blog, oops. BUT, this week I have managed to catch up with old friends, go to the dentist for the first time in 6…

My Favourite Bloggers

Today is Day 17 in the Travel Writing Challenge (this is not the number of days since I started, I have probably missed more days than I have taken part) and the prompt is my favourite bloggers and instagrammers. So here is a very short list. In writing this, I realised I follow a lot…

What’s in a name?

So first up, a little explaining. This is my life right now. I am moving flats tomorrow, and I have been spending my days working, packing, and procrastinating by staring at walls. One day I will write a post about the devil that is Foxtons Estate Agents, but that’s for another day. So here I…

My Passion

Today is Day 16 in the Travel Writing Challenge, and the prompt is something I am passionate about. I had a think about this, and was going to write about one thing. But to be honest I just couldn’t pick, so I have decided to write about a few things that I feel truly strongly…

Things I wish I knew before travelling

I’m back on track!! Two posts in two days! I’m feeling much more on top of life, and will be doing my best to be back on it for the near future. So here is day 15 (half way wahoooooo), and a few things I wish I knew before travelling. Most of them involve common…

Food, Glorious Food

I promise, I sat down last night, ready to write my blog. I logged in, and read the original 30 Day post, to read that day 14 is what I ate today. At 10 o’clock last night, I had eaten all my food of the day and taken zero pictures. I also ate shit, including…

My Travel Inspiration(s)

Today is day 13 in the 30 day travel writing challenge, and the prompt is what inspired me to start travelling. My whole life, my family has travelled here there and everywhere. Before I began on this planet, my parents lived in Madrid and the Chicago (cheers for giving my bro dual American nationality and…

Something no one knows about me 

So today is day 12 of the travel writing challenge (yesterday was day 12, but I’m a little bit ill, overtired, and spent my evening crying to Dear John, so it was not on my list) and all about something no one knows about me. I have to admit, this prompt made me chuckle. As…

My Passport Stamps

I’ve made it to Day 11 of the travel writing challenge (just, I was busy watching bake off) and today is the the story of my passport stamps. I’m actually quite disappointed by my passport stamps. A lot of the travelling I do is in Europe, so I obviously don’t get stamps which is such…
