Nest 23

If you haven’t heard yet, Cardiff’s High Street has recently welcomed a new bar addition, as Nest 23 has opened its doors to the people of Cardiff, to serve up your tipple of choice. With some wonderful neighbours including PennyRoyal and Gin and Juice, I was very excited to be invited to the launch of […]

Penarth Pier RM

January can be quite a challenging month. You’re probably a little bit on the skint side after Christmas and the January sales, the weather is pretty awful and the dark mornings are still very much a thing, meaning hibernation mode is incredibly tempting albeit, not always healthy. I’ve mentioned having issues with January Blues on […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]
