Life

When I was younger, I thought by 24 I’d have my own business and be living in a penthouse apartment in New York overlooking Central Park and spending my evenings drinking cocktails and dining at the fanciest of restaurants. In reality, I’m currently sat in my bedroom in Leeds working, constantly wondering why the money in my bank account just goes so quickly when I have nothing to show for it and well, a holiday to New York would be a dream let alone living there. I wanted to be

There is nothing I love more than going on holiday. If I had the money, I would just spend my time hopping on and off planes and discovering different places. Now March is here and the days are getting that bit longer and the sun is finally starting to appear, it’s that time of year where we’re planning our holidays and working out where to go. You want a place that’s going to please everyone you’re going with and have you talking about it long after you’ve stepped off the plane

Yep you heard me right…Chocolate Chip, Oreo and Nutella fluffy pancakes! Could a dessert be anymore perfect?! Pancakes should not just be for pancake day. They should be for everyyy day of the year! Okay maybe not, I don’t think our waistlines would thank us for that but if you’re looking for an indulgent treat to impress guests or just have all to yourself (I won’t tell anyone!) then you’ve come to the right place. I’d never made American style pancakes before and I was determined to give them a try. Luckily,

A Weekend In Edinburgh

P2117908

We like to do something special for Valentines. Last year we went to Budapest which was absolutely amazing and you can read all about it here. This year however, we went somewhere slightly closer to home…Edinburgh. We spent the weekend in the Scottish capital as Valentines Day falls inconveniently on a Tuesday this year. It was such a nice weekend and my first time in Edinburgh and well, Scotland too! We picked a fab weekend weather-wise. I’m talking freezing cold temperatures where you can’t feel your hands which made photo

I had the most incredible couple of days last weekend staying at the stunning Aphrodite’s Luxury Boutique Hotel in Lake Windermere. I was lucky enough to stay at this hotel just over a year ago and ever since that first time I have been DYING to return so I was over the moon to be able to stay there again last weekend. I didn’t think it was possible for the hotel to improve from the first time round but it was actually even nicer than before making my jaw drop even

So, that’s it then. Another year over. 2017. My god. I thought we would have flying cars and robots to clean our houses and serve our dinner by now. Come on technology, what you playing at?! Not that I’m complaining, I still can’t understand why anyone would want to read a book on a kindle rather than the paper version…But anyway, I am currently writing this on New Years Day, looking like a hungover mess and surrounded by a shedload of food trying to remember what New Years resolutions I

I envy those people who have all their Christmas presents sorted by September. If this is you then just how do you do it?! I don’t think I’ve ever started my Christmas shopping before December which is probably why every single year I am running around madly, forcing myself to brave the chaos of the shops. So to help those of us still searching for gifts for the ladies in our lives, whether that’s your sister, friend, mum, girlfriend or if you’re simply looking for some inspo for your own

Life: Staying Positive

Nearly 5 years ago, my beautiful and much loved ginger cat went missing. We would spend every evening for months and months searching the streets for him, putting up banners with his little face on, praying that one day he’d just come back. He never did and we eventually kinda gave up hope. My family loved that cat so so much. Would you believe on Sunday morning we received a phonecall from the vets saying they think they have our cat. Nearly 5 years later. And it was. It was

The Astro Palace Hotel in Santorini is definitely the nicest hotel I’ve ever stayed in. The whole experience was completely luxurious and I cannot recommend this place enough, seriously. We took absolutely ages to decide on a hotel for Santorini. We wanted something that was extra special but we also didn’t want to pay a thousand pounds a night…Oh yes, you should see some of the prices for accommodation in Santorini, it’s crazy! I do think that if you’re going to stay in a really nice hotel on just one of

Santorini had been on my bucket list for years. I’d forever longed to wander those blue and white streets and watch the beautiful sunset that it’s so famous for and last month, I finally got to tick it off my forever growing list of places I want to visit. It just so happened that my birthday landed on the same day that we headed to Santorini and as a treat we stayed in a luxurious 5 star hotel with our very own pool! I will be doing a full review
