Whether you love it or you hate it, we are the generation that takes photographs of our food before we eat it. Some of us even choose looks over taste, going as far as ordering something from the menu purely because the carefully thought out descriptions make it sound as if it will be a photogenic dish. We’re willing to let our coffees go cold and well, everyone else’s on the table too, get funny looks from customers as we stand in all sorts of positions in order to get that perfect

A good coffee shop to me is not only somewhere you can get a great coffee and a delicious indulgent snack but also somewhere that you makes you want to stay for hours and hours on end. Whenever I visit a new city, I always try and suss out the best places to eat and drink and one that really stood out to me when I was in Hanoi in Vietnam a couple of months ago was The Note Coffee.  I absolutely love the concept behind The Note Coffee which is

A Weekend In Edinburgh

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

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

So I’m currently sat right next to the fire trying to get as much heat as possible. In fact, if I went about 5cm to my left I’d probably be in the fire, burning away. When did it get SO cold? Don’t get me wrong, I am excited for chunky knits, coat shopping and cosy nights in in the warmth but I feel like summer just came and went in a heartbeat…it’s crazy. I’ve been super busy these last few weeks since I got back from the Greek Islands and

Hello! I’m suffering from major holiday blues right now and I’m currently wishing I was still wandering the blue and white streets of Mykonos Town, taking at least a hundred pictures of every single street we turned into. I’m 100% blaming the beauty of Mykonos for the fact my iphone storage is full – I just can’t bring myself to delete a single photo! I loved all the islands we visited in different ways but Mykonos was probably my ultimate favourite. From renting a quad and exploring the beaches on

If money wasn’t an option I’d be in a different country every week. I absolutely love travelling and I cannot wait to jet off to Greece soon. Excited is an understatement! So on my ‘saving for holiday’ budget, my boyfriend and I recently swapped our ‘let’s do a city break to Palma’ for a ‘let’s go to Manchester’…erm yep, not quite as glamorous hey but a whole lot cheaper and still so much fun. I love Manchester and I think if I had to move to another city in the UK

Anyone else an avid follower of all those dessert accounts on Instagram?! I’m forever spotting delicious looking ones, screen shotting them and vowing to make them one day but when I recently spotted a cookie pie, my eyes lit up and it went straight to the top of my ‘must bake’ list. A giant gooey cookie? What could be more fabulous than that? I put my own little twist on it making it extra indulgent. I’m talking that every-crumb-gone-in-a-matter-of-hours indulgence and the kinda indulgence that’s worth every single calorie. If

3 day weekends are my favourites. I love having that extra day off to relax and I’m sure everyone will agree that starting the working week on a Tuesday is a billion times better than a Monday. Mondays are just downright awful aren’t they?! Yesterday my boyfriend and I decided to visit Haworth, a pretty village in West Yorkshire, to indulge in their amazing cafes, have a nice stroll up and down the cobbled streets and a browse in their cute shops.  I visited Haworth once when I was younger
