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
A couple of people have remarked on 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 took me to Morocco, where I … 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. Last week, Jonny treated me to a weekend in Bath for my birthday and it really is such a gorgeous city, full of quintessential British charm and fascinating history. Stay-cations are definitely underestimated and I'm just … Continue reading Summer Staycation: A Weekend in Bath
I've always had a desire to see the world, I think this was probably inspired by a stint living in India as a child, however it wasn't really until recently that I realised quite how much I want to explore.
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 … 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
Hello, me again! Back with another film love in, because apparently I go to the cinema too much! But hey, that's what cold winter evenings are for eh? And who doesn't love getting stuck into a tub of popcorn?! This time it's all about Hacksaw Ridge - Another incredible true story and another fantastic Oscar worthy … Continue reading Hacksaw Ridge – One Hell of an Emotional Rollercoaster!
If you haven't been to see Lion yet, please do! I'm still absolutely gobsmacked that it's based on a true story and it's definitely not one to miss. The little boy who plays Saroo is literally so cute you'll want to adopt him yourself and if Dev Patel doesn't get the Oscar for Supporting Actor, … Continue reading Lion – What a Film!
I like to think of myself as quite a committed gym-goer. With the exception of a few weeks in the year (holidays, Christmas, general couch potato phases), I'm generally pretty motivated. That is until January comes around. Suddenly the classes that I've attended week in week out for the last two years are fully booked … Continue reading Gym in Jan
