Why I love to travel 

Day 7. We’re getting serious here. I have gone a good few days and I have not considered tumbling spectacularly, backwards off the blogging wagon (again). Today is all about why I love to travel. To be honest this is a really hard one. I don’t even know how to put into words why I…

A Rant: John Lewis and Labels

So here’s one that none of you were expecting. The prompt for today’s challenge (day no.6, woop woop, go me!) is a rant, and I actually wrote this a few days ago when I read something that just really got my goat. It was announced that John Lewis are releasing a new line of children’s clothing and…

Somewhere I’ve always wanted to go

Day 5 and the prompt for today’s writing challenge is a place I’ve always wanted to go. A lot of my travelling is based on cheap flights, last minute deals and bargain Air BnBs, so often, my wish list doesn’t come into account. We recently flew to Madrid thanks to a good deal, last year…

Sacha Yacu Animal Rescue Centre, Ecuador

So after a minor hiccup in my 30 day writing challenge and some inspo from chloevsworld, I am back. To all my faithful followers (yes, I am laughing too). So here’s to Day 3. Something amazing I have done abroad. To be honest, absolutely nothing I’ve done in my life beats this. After university, I decided…

Oops

So I fell off the blog bandwagon with spectacular style. I managed a few posts, then of course, as I do, I went radio silent. Good one em. Just can’t keep a good thing up?! So here’s my lame excuse. Me and the other half have been back on the flat hunt. We need a…

Someone I Look Up To

Today is Day 4 in my writing challenge. Put your hands up if you didn’t think I’d last this long?! Today’s post is supposed to be all about someone I look up to. I thought about this for a while. I had a think about my favourite and most inspiring celebs/figures: Will Smith (god amongst…

Something That Makes My World a Better Place

I’ve made it to Day 2 in the 30 day challenge! Yippee for me! Today is all about something that makes my world a better place. In all honesty, I don’t think I can write about one thing, so there’ll be a few things on here (sorry not sorry). First off, is my partner in…

My Top Travel Tips

This is my first post of my 30 Day Travel Writing Challenge. I have put together a few of my top tips (which you may choose to ignore, as I often do). After various travel adventures, I have experienced my fair share of mishaps. From losing my bags in the Galapagos, getting pneumonia in Les…

30 Day Travel Writing Challenge

As anyone can quite obviously see, I have not been paying my blog any attention in the past few months. If my blog was my boyfriend, it would have dumped my ass by now. But as of a few days ago, thanks to this great post by chloevsworld, I’ve been inspired to take part in…

Farewell Sweet Pup

I recently lost my gorgeous pooch, who’d been with us for 17 years. Dennis’ life began with us after our previous dog, Harry, died. We had gone to the kennels after school, as mum was needed to do the paperwork and pick up his ashes. As a distraction, the kennel owner took my brother and…

Being a Proper Londoner

I’ve now been working in London for two months, and living here for nearly three. I wasn’t ever really set on the idea of truly being a Londoner, and I think a part of me kept considering fleeing home, so it didn’t really stick. But I finally feel like I’m learning the London ways and…

My Favourite Destination: Demre, Turkey

I’ve recently returned from a short stint of travelling to Austria with work, and I don’t have any travels booked for the foreseeable future. For me this is a rarity and it’s had me thinking about some of the places I’ve been fortunate enough to live. While working as a Nanny for a tour operator,…
