When Home is the Destination: Valentine’s Night in With eShores

[AD] I think given the choice, we’d all want to jet off on a romantic and luxurious holiday for Valentine’s Day (or any time of the year, really!) but unfortunately, for most of us, that’s not a realistic options for a number of reasons. If you and your partner are jetting off somewhere exotic this […]

Brooklands Hotel: Hotel & Restaurant Review

[AD] Late last year, I was very kindly offered a complimentary stay and dinner at the Brooklands Hotel & Spa in Surrey. At the time, I thought it was too good to be true but when it finally came around and we arrived at this absolutely stunning hotel, well, hello Imposter Syndrome. On Friday 18th […]

Things To Do in Istanbul *

Turkey is a wonderful location that’s well worth a look for holiday makers from around the world. It is the living, breathing, thriving apotheosis of east meets west. It offers both the charm and familiarity of Mediterranean locations like Greece or Spain combined with the exoticism of North African holiday destinations like Tunisia or Morocco […]

Travel experiences I’d love to have *

#AD I’m definitely not the most well traveled person; I would be absolutely useless backpacking, I don’t want to go to Australia because I’m scared of the animals and Thailand looks beautiful but I hate getting too hot. But travel means different things to everyone and I certainly don’t think there’s anything wrong with not […]

Europe Honeymoon Destination Guide 2019 *

#AD It’s a new year and that means at least one person you know got engaged over Christmas or has a wedding planned for 2019. If that’s you, massive congratulations! If not but you’d still like to dream about your ideal wedding and (more importantly in my opinion) your ideal honeymoon, then welcome. You’ve come […]

My relaxing holiday wish-list *

I’ve always enjoyed a huge range of different types of holidays, ever since I was in school. From your standard, laying by the pool and doing absolutely nothing holiday, to an entire week of skiing in the French Alps, to gallivanting around Disneyland, enjoying the rides and meeting my favourite characters, I’ve never been one […]

Dealing with anxiety and mobility on holiday *

If you’re a regular reader of this blog or you follow me on Twitter, you’ll know that I suffer with anxiety. It’s quite obvious really, I’ve spoken about it enough and I’m always as open and honest as I can possibly be with my mental health because I know that so many other people suffer […]

Places I want to visit before I’m 30 *

I recently turned 26 and I freaked out about it a little bit (if you’d like to read the entire rambly freak-out post, please feel free). I hate getting older, I hate the reminders of all the things I have yet to achieve and all the things I wish I’d already done but either never […]

My essentials for a weekend away *

I love short breaks away – especially staycations. I rarely go on long, lavish holidays anymore, instead opting for a weekend here and a few days there in different parts of the U.K (although if I had the means to, I definitely would treat myself to a lavish holiday somewhere nice!) However I’ve learnt that […]

Romantic getaway wish-list *

Despite being in various long-term relationships, I can’t say I’ve ever really been on a proper “romantic getaway” before. I’m not a hugely romantic person but you never know what being whisked away to far off shores could do to a gal! I’m yet to find that one out (and I wouldn’t personally consider a […]

Simple ways to save and budget on your family holiday *

I’m sure most of us are familiar with the feeling of getting back from holiday, checking out bank account and having to do a double or triple take at the figure in front of our eyes. I visited The Lake District back in 2015 and splashed away hundreds and hundreds of pounds on top of […]

Holiday preparation: Packing check list & things to remember!

Whether you prefer the comforts of home and enjoy a few staycations throughout the year, save up and splurge on one big luxury Summer holiday or rather jet off to exotic locations for a more lengthy period, being prepared for holidays, long or short, is super important. This is your time to relax, kick off […]

Advice for first time skiers *

I’ve tried to incorporate travel and holiday type posts on my blog a lot more recently because holidays, trips and even short weekends away mean an awful lot to me. They leave us with some of the best memories and photos to look back on and by writing about it, I get to reminisce all […]

6 things to do in London for the ultimate tourist experience

London; you’ve probably been there. If you haven’t been there, you probably want to go there. And if you want to go there, there’s no doubt that you’ll wanna see the sights and famous attractions that London is so well-known for. I live in Essex, approximately 20 minutes on a train from Liverpool Street Station […]

Severn Valley Railway: Spring Steam Gala 2018

You might look at me and think I don’t look like the sort of person who is interested in steam trains. And you’d be 100% correct – I’m not. But last year, I enjoyed my weekend on the Severn Valley Railway during their Autumn Steam Gala in September so much that I knew I wanted […]

My favourite holidays *

I’m most certainly not a travel blogger: I don’t go on nowhere near enough holidays or trips for that to be a reality unfortunately. As much as I wish I could book a dozen small getaways a year, that’s not realistic for me… And probably for a lot of other people too. However, over the […]

What holidays mean to me *

As you may know, I’m not really a traveler in the sense that I’m not planning to up sticks and travel around Asia for the foreseeable future. I admire those that do lead a travelling lifestyle and some of my favourite blogs are written by women who do just that. But personally, I don’t think that […]
