You know when life’s going well, you’re really happy at work and at home, but you’re also majorly tired and just in need of a break? Well, last weekend I had that feeling. Which is why I was so glad that I booked a weekend away in London for me and George during the Black Friday sales. Not only did we manage to get return train tickets for both of us from Leeds for £20, but I also got us a Travelodge room in Southwark, our favourite place to stay, for just over £100 for 2 nights (unheard of for a weekend in London!) I couldn’t wait to go back to one of my favourite cities to explore- let’s see what we got up to, shall we? View Full Post

Hello lovelies!

So, I just mentioned this in my post on my travel plans for this year, but me and George went to stay in Bowness-on-windermere for the night last week as a little impromptu getaway! It was everything I hoped it would be and more, and it was the perfect thing to clear my head after getting so bogged down with my dissertation and independent project for my final year at uni. Also, we’ve been trying to be super-healthy recently, so we definitely needed a break to just eat whatever we wanted and relax… View Full Post

Hello lovelies,

I have been stuck in a bit of a blogging rut recently, I have to admit. Since starting my YouTube channel, I’ve been much more focussed on making videos than writing, and of course the familiar stab of blogger envy (not feeling like anything I write is good enough, being overly critical of all my photos, you get the gist) holding me back. Anyway, I decided to just take the pressure off myself and write something. Today seemed like a good day to write about my travel plans for 2016, because last night George and I booked a spontaneous night away in the Lake District in just a few days’ time!

So I was looking at my Booking.com app and all the exciting trips we’ve got coming up (we’ve booked them all through their website as their prices and ‘pay when you stay’ policy are both pretty ideal. Who wants to book and pay everything upfront? It’s much easier to save up in the time you’ve got until you stay, which is what we’re doing for our trips this year. View Full Post

Hello lovelies!

At the beginning of July, I went to Wales on holiday with George and my parents. It was such a relaxing week and I wanted to share my photos and experiences with you guys! I had never been to Wales before, but my dad was actually born in Aberdovey where we stayed in North Wales, and I was pleasantly surprised by just how much I loved it there. It is definitely one of the most beautiful places in the UK, and I loved the combination of countryside and beaches- you’re never far from rolling hills or a sandy coast. View Full Post

Hello lovelies- I’m baaaack!

I really had no choice but to take a break from blogging this past month- it has been so busy and eventful that sadly one of my favourite hobbies has had to take a back seat. It’s all good news though, and you guys are definitely overdue a life update post which will be coming very soon!
As some of you may know, last month I went to Amsterdam for a little break. I didn’t take a huge amount of photos as we were in a big group and I’d get left behind if I stopped to photograph everything I wanted to- it is such a beautiful, blog-worthy city! However, I wanted to share my experience with you all through my iPhone over the 3 days we were there and give some recommendations of places to visit if you’re planning a little city break anytime soon.
