Whenever I travel somewhere, new or old, I have to pick up some souvenirs. I know eventually I’m going to run out of places to put all of the little trinkets I come home with, but there’s something about having little keepsakes from every town I visit that I just love. I tend to pick up the something the city is known for (for example I got wooden tulips in Amsterdam) then either a t-shirt, flag, key ring, guidebook or all of the above. There is one souvenir that I never fail to pick up when travelling though, travel postcards. I know…

I’ve finally started decorating my office so that I can sit in a proper work environment when it comes doing my freelance work in the evenings, so the last few weeks I have spent SO MUCH time lusting over some incredible travel themed office decor.

I really didn’t want to leave, but I was a graduate with no experience struggling to find a job that didn’t want me to work for free.

Over the past few months, you’ve probably noticed that I’ve been going on lots of shorter breaks, rather than week-long getaways. This not just because of my lack of holiday days, but also because I will always go for the cheaper option if it means I get the opportunity to explore a new country. When looking for cheaper breaks, I usually find that Air BnB rentals and hotels are the best option price wise, so this is what the majority of my breaks have been this year. When it comes to which is best though, I really don’t know if…

Considering I only live a few hours away by train, I’ve actually only ever visited Liverpool twice in my entire life. Once was a school trip where we walked around the Tate art gallery all day, and the second was a recent blogger’s event where I went from the train station to the venue, then back to the station again. There’s so much more to Liverpool I need to see.  In my vow to visit more UK cities, I think Liverpool is definitely top of the list as it’s somewhere I’ve always wanted to explore more. I’ve seen so many…
