Milk & Sugar Windsor Place

Milk & Sugar, Windsor Place

If you haven’t yet heard of it, Milk & Sugar is an independent chain of cafes and coffee shops dotted around the heart of Cardiff’s city centre. With venues at Windsor Place, Capital Tower, Cardiff’s Old Library, One Central Square and most recently, Brunel House, Milk & Sugar is well and truly taking Cardiff by […]

What I’m currently reading

I absolutely adore reading and it’s a hobby that I’ve enjoyed since I was very young, always searching for a new story or for new information. But I find that whenever I read, it will usually go between two extremes – either I can’t stop reading and will churn through a few books over a […]

Where to eat in Seville

You only have to walk down a side street in Seville to realise how many restaurants, tapas bars and bodegas that there are in this city. With this plethora of options, it can seem quite daunting and the possibility of stumbling into a less than average eatery is not desirable for anyone, especially when you’re […]

My 2018 travel plans

I can’t believe that we’re in 2018 already. Last year seemed to absolutely fly by but during that time, I was very lucky to have undertaken some incredible trips abroad including Paris, Rome, Seville and Barcelona. Yes, 2017 was pretty special for me but once again, I’m starting another year with some travel plans already […]

My Winter Beauty Favourites

It’s been quite a long time since I’ve purchased beauty products that truly stand out and make me want to shout about them. Perhaps that’s one of the reasons why I’ve neglected writing about beauty products for such a long time on my blog. It takes a lot for me to really be passionate about […]

Blanche Cardiff

Blanche Bakery

I love seeing new independents open in Cardiff. As a city, I believe we’re quite welcoming towards them and we truly wish to see them succeed. At least, that’s certainly how I feel. This is particularly true for Cardiff’s newest venue, Blanche Bakery which opened its doors on December 16. I was lucky enough to […]

Fantastic city destinations for the Christmas Holidays

I’m very sad to admit that I’ve never taken a trip away across Christmas. Despite visiting Ljubljana at the start of December in 2016 where the Christmas celebrations had recently begun, I would absolutely love to spend Christmas in another city, perhaps with a blanket of snow outside while I cosy up to a warm […]

Snow in South Wales

I love snow – it has that festive air about it and is a sign that winter has well and truly arrived. Sadly, in the last few years, we’ve seen little to none of the beautiful snowflakes I became accustomed to as a child, which is quite depressing and it has been a noticeable absence from […]

Bath Christmas Market

I know that for many, Bath Christmas Market officially marks the start of the festive season and from that visit on, the countdown is underway. For that reason, I know that the Christmas Market is an essential visit for those countless people in the UK and those further afield who venture to the city in the […]

The Potted Pig

The Potted Pig

The Potted Pig is one of those Cardiff restaurants that I’ve constantly heard positive reviews about but I have somehow struggled to find time to visit. I’m aware that this suitably earns me a slap on the wrist considering this establishment has been operating in our Welsh capital since 2011. Yet from my perception, it’s one […]
