The second half of our trip

I thought that I would write a little bit about our plans for the second half of our trip following on from spending December in Thailand. We’ll be spending a few days in Kuala Lumpur where I’m looking forward to eating some great food and seeing the Petronas Towers. We would have liked to have…

Travelling with make up

  It’s officially a month until we fly as of Saturday and I’ve been busy prepping for our trip. So far, I’ve made a few gimmicky and boring purchases. I celebrated passing my TEFL (with a distinction!) by purchasing a travel washing line so I thought it was time to start listing the exciting purchases –…

The path I’m following…

Following on from my announcement in last weeks post, it is now a mere 6 weeks until I set off on my travels with James! That being the case, I thought that I would share the first half of the path that I will be following during my eight months abroad and the things that…

Fulfilling My Travel Plans…

June 2017 has been a big month for my partner and I. We’ve handed our notices in to our employers, booked flights, got our immunizations and are headed off to start our big adventure in August 2017 starting with two months in Hanoi, Vietnam! We’ve both put a lot of thought into going travelling over…

Organising my first Hen Party.

In November 2016, one of my oldest friends text me to say that she was engaged. I was thrilled for her and even more thrilled when she asked me to be her Bridesmaid! Being the list maker, coordinator, detail over thinker that I am, I gifted her with a wedding planner (not that she really…

Photo Diary- A Week in Crete (Pt.2)

A few days into our holiday to Crete we decided to visit some of the more popular historic sights. On this particular day, we booked a trip to visit the ruins of the Minoan Palace in Knossos. The first thing that struck me was how big the site actually was- it was huge! Our guide…

Photo Diary- A Week in Crete (Pt.1)

I recently spent a week in the Heraklion area of Crete. I ate a lot, I had more than a few cocktails, I spent days wandering around historical sites and beautiful towns, I even managed to hit the gym and attend a stretch class (note the singulars there!)

May Birch Box

Guys…. It’s June. Already. This year is just flying by! That being said, I’m going to ignore June for a moment or two so that I can describe the May edition of the Birch box. In my post about the April edition, you would have seen that I was starting to lose heart a bit;…

Away on Holidays!

I’m currently in the Heraklion area of Greece. I’ll be posting again as of next week but for now I’m going take some time out to enjoy some sun, sea and cocktails! These images are taken from the Thomson Holiday App. I will add some of my own when I get back.

Packing for Greece

I’m heading off to Heraklion in Crete for a week so I thought I’d share a few items that I will be bringing along on my trip with me. Some of these are fresh and new, some are things that I’ve had for a little while: Gingham floral print top – Primark Blue denim mom…

April Birch Box

April has been and gone and I’m reflecting back on the latest edition of my monthly Birch Box. I’m in two minds about my April box if I’m honest. There are a few items that I am happy with and some that I’m indifferent about, I also received my first ever damaged product (the bane…

Easter Chocolate Cupcakes

Recently I gave up chocolate for Lent. I’m not a particularly religious person but I felt that since Christmas I had been over indulging by eating chocolate every day and I was starting to feel a bit sluggish so it was time for a change. I still allowed myself other junk food non-chocolate treats but…
