48 Hours in Brussels, Belgium

Brussels isn't somewhere I had ever hugely considered, I didn't know that much about it and to this day, I'm not quite sure how we ended up deciding to go there. Nonetheless, I'm glad that we did. It's not a huge city centre - small but perfectly formed, with a lot of history, great biscuits … Continue reading 48 Hours in Brussels, Belgium

MY TOP 10 FAVOURITE MUSICALS

I absolutely ADORE musicals. I don’t think I tend to come across as that kind of person but believe me, I am. I’m a proper curtains up, music starts, overwhelmed by excitement for musical crying kind of person.  Over the years I’ve seen a fair few, including some wild cards – this is my personal … Continue reading MY TOP 10 FAVOURITE MUSICALS

A FEW DEVON DAYS | WEEKEND WANDERING

A few months again, I wrote this post about a trip down to Devon with my boyfriend to visit his family. It was such a nice weekend, that we decided to use some holiday days to go down there again (this time joined by my dog, Bonnie). It always feels a little bit funny writing … Continue reading A FEW DEVON DAYS | WEEKEND WANDERING

FREE FERRIES AND SECRET CAFES | AMSTERDAM DAY 1 | WEEKEND WANDERING

Considering its only a 45 minute plane ride away and a good friend of mine lives there its pretty much a travesty that I hadn't visited Amsterdam since 2015. Though judging by the title of this post, you've probably figured out that I finally managed to return to the land of cheese and beer... Last … Continue reading FREE FERRIES AND SECRET CAFES | AMSTERDAM DAY 1 | WEEKEND WANDERING

RICHMOND PARK | LONDON | WEEKEND WANDERING

I had always heard a lot about Richmond Park - its big, its beautiful, there's lots of deer and its home to the Royal Ballet School (I watched a documentary about it once, sadly I've never attended myself). So finally, myself, my boyfriend Fred and our friend's Emma and Phil agreed to go down there … Continue reading RICHMOND PARK | LONDON | WEEKEND WANDERING

CHIHUAHUA CAFE | EDINBURGH | WEEKEND WANDERING

Usually I love the train journey up to Edinburgh - its about 5.5 hours long but it gives me time to write, read and watch tv in comfortable, warm seats. Usually moments when I get to do these things are slotted in in between stressful ones and are therefore very rarely dedicated just to this; … Continue reading CHIHUAHUA CAFE | EDINBURGH | WEEKEND WANDERING

BEER AND BEACHES | DEVON | WEEKEND WANDERING

A few weeks back (when it was still pretty damn chilly), I went with my boyfriend, Fred to visit his parents down in Devon. He grew up there and absolutely loves it, so I'd heard a lot about it. I'd been down to that area of the country before (to Cornwall) but never to his … Continue reading BEER AND BEACHES | DEVON | WEEKEND WANDERING
