NEW ENGLAND AUTUMN ROAD TRIP HIGHLIGHTS

Boston I’ve been to Chicago, New York, Washington DC, Nashville… Basically a bunch of US cities in the east, but until this road trip I had never made it to Boston. It’s been on my list for a while so I was very excited to finally go. This may seem like a bit of a … Continue reading NEW ENGLAND AUTUMN ROAD TRIP HIGHLIGHTS

BOSTON | AUTUMN ROAD TRIP

On our second day, we woke up in Lenox and did the short drive into Boston (info on the first leg of our journey here). When we looked at accommodation in Boston, we were blown away - it's so, so bloody expensive. As in, hundreds of pounds a night. A NIGHT. I understand in cities, … Continue reading BOSTON | AUTUMN ROAD TRIP

(AIN’T SEEN NOTHIN YET UNTIL YOU’RE) DOWNTOWN | DAY 5 | NEW YORK

Most of our time in New York was spent in mid/uptown but this was our final day so we went AWOL (to other nice places). First stop, Brooklyn Bridge. This day (funnily enough the one we were spending the majority of outside) was absolutely FREEZING but it didn't put us off - we wrapped up … Continue reading (AIN’T SEEN NOTHIN YET UNTIL YOU’RE) DOWNTOWN | DAY 5 | NEW YORK

COMEDY AND CHEESECAKE | DAY 4 | NEW YORK

This may be a slightly shorter blog than normal seeing as day 4 was a bit of a shopping day and I don't have the time to list all of the things that I purchased. What I will say is that I love Free People with all my heart. Sephora, you guys are pretty damn … Continue reading COMEDY AND CHEESECAKE | DAY 4 | NEW YORK

ALL THE MUSEUMS | DAY 3 | NEW YORK

And suddenly, the third day was upon us. It came round very quickly and proved a point about making the most of your time. I think we had done pretty well so far but this day really showed you can always do more.  It wasn't the best weather so it worked out quite well for … Continue reading ALL THE MUSEUMS | DAY 3 | NEW YORK

MOVIES AND MUSICALS | DAY 2 | NEW YORK

A cold, January morning in New York City. A mother and daughter awake early and rush out of their midtown hotel towards their pre-agreed destination; the Stardust Diner in Times Square.

LDN – NY | DAY 1 | NEW YORK

Being the brave adventurers we are, last month my mum and I left the averagely cold weather of London for the extreme cold that was New York at the time. We were there for 5 days and did about 5 million things. Not bad going. Plus, after panic buying jumpers and squashing them into our luggage, … Continue reading LDN – NY | DAY 1 | NEW YORK

2018 IS FINALLY HERE

HAPPY 2018 Y'ALL Congratulations to you all for making it through a terrible, terrible year. I won't bother to try to sum up world events as the news was absolutely inescapable and equally unforgivable last year. Waking up and looking at my phone still panics me slightly. On a similarly sad note, this blog is … Continue reading 2018 IS FINALLY HERE

A DAY IN SEATTLE | RUNNING AROUND IN DRESSING GOWNS | CANADIAN ROAD TRIP 2016

MOTIF SEATTLE After a long, dark bus ride involving a super fun stop off at the US border (my fourth of this trip), we made it to Seattle safe and sound where we jumped in a cab for the short journey to our hotel. We stayed at the Motif Seattle, which now has to be … Continue reading A DAY IN SEATTLE | RUNNING AROUND IN DRESSING GOWNS | CANADIAN ROAD TRIP 2016

TORONTO TO NIAGARA | FLASHBACK FRIDAY | CANADIAN ROAD TRIP 2016

It's been a while since I last posted about our epic American/Canadian trip, so I thought it made sense to make it a throwback... I mean, it was April! Sorry for taking so long; there is so much more story to be told, and a lot of truly amazing (genuinely once in a lifetime) places to … Continue reading TORONTO TO NIAGARA | FLASHBACK FRIDAY | CANADIAN ROAD TRIP 2016
