When your best friend owns a vineyard in Bordeaux it would be rude not to pay her a visit, right? Well, last weekend I was lucky enough to be invited out to France with a group of friends to check out their stunning new abode! Having made the envy-inducing move to the French countryside earlier … Continue reading Bordeaux: A Weekend in Wine Country
Having grown up in the Essex countryside for the best part of my life (give or take a few years for a stint in India as a child and time away at uni...twice), I've had a bit of a love/hate relationship with living in the sticks. As a teen I was desperate to live closer to … Continue reading An Ode to the Countryside
A couple of people have remarked at how I always seem to be on holiday recently - well a girl's gotta make the most of her annual leave, hasn't she (even if it means I'll have nothing left to use for the rest of the year)?! My latest adventure was to Morocco, which I visited … Continue reading Magical Morocco
It's true what they say, sometimes the most beautiful places are right on your door step...or...well...three hours down the motorway.

With it comes stress, rejection, hard work and competition, just to name a few factors and it most … Continue reading The Real Struggles of Job Hunting
Vibrant, colourful, chaotic, energetic, fragrant (not always pleasant...in fact more often unpleasant), crowded, dirty, beautiful, bustling, historic...Just a handful of words I could use to describe the vast, diverse and truly unique nation that is India. Having lived in India as a child, I wasn't entering the country blind, however upon arrival I realised the … Continue reading Eternal India
Don't ever underestimate the therapeutic power of dogs! I'm aware that not everyone likes the four legged balls of fluff, but there's nothing quite like my fur baby to put a smile on my face when I'm feeling a bit low.
Happy Valentine's Day all! Love it or hate it, it's gonna be pretty difficult to avoid it today, so you may as well embrace it! I've never been one to go mad for the occasion. After all, it was simply invented by marketers to get a bit more money out of us poor sods. This … Continue reading Happy Chocolate and Flowers Day
