5 reasons why you should travel

Why does anyone go travelling? For the Instagram pictures, the memories or the change of scenery? For the past few years, travelling and having adventures has been a top priority for me- I’m always on the lookout for new places to visit, sights to explore and countries to tick off my list as the travel […]

Setting goals for Spring

I’m absolutely baffled that we’re in April already. Despite so much happening so far in 2018, this year seems to be whizzing by, but I’m determined to make the most of it before it’s over. The New Year’s resolutions are most likely left in February or perhaps they have simply become less of a priority […]

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 […]

Why I love having a dog

I’ve only really mentioned him briefly on my blog previously, but a little over a year ago, we got a beagle called Toby and brought him home and into our family. Having a dog absolutely changes your world and it’s an incredible responsibility – I think Toby equals the same amount of work as what […]

Instagram pods: to stay or go?

  Let’s be honest, since the change to the Instagram algorithm, your engagement will either have skyrocketed further than you could have ever imagined, or it will have been completely shot to shit.

Primark missed a Chip

Over the last couple of weeks, in the lead up to the release of the live action Beauty and the Beast, my attention has been fully on the Instagram account of Primark. I know most people won’t need me to explain why, but for those of you who may have missed this, Primark is or […]

It’s time to get organised

We all know that running a blog can be extremely time consuming, especially if you have a full time job or if you’re a full time student. It can be hard and can sometimes seem impossible to make time for everything including growing your social media network, writing good content, taking photographs and creating a […]

It’s okay to not be a morning person

I will put my hands up and say that I am not, nor have I ever really been a morning person. If you meet me before 8am then later in the afternoon, you’ll definitely see a difference. Unfortunately, a lot of things involve early starts and much of society revolves around early starts. I’m talking […]

Christmas Eve Traditions

Happy Christmas Eve everybody! Excitement for Christmas day is now unreal in my house and I’m sure it is in yours too. My Christmas presents are all wrapped for friends and family and I think I’m even more excited about giving presents this year than receiving them! I say this but I’m sure I’ll be […]

Why did you start blogging?

We’re fast approaching the end of another year. For some, this may have been their first year with a blog. Others no doubt will be started in the New Year as part of a New Year’s resolution. For me, it’s the end of my second year as a blogger. However, it’s the first year that […]
