Back when I lived in London years and years ago, Covent Garden was one of my absolute favourite places to go. I loved the buildings, the market square, the cobbled streets and most of all that there was ALWAYS something going on. It was a charming little area, so I made sure to go back as often as I could. ❤️ Since moving away I haven’t been able to go back as often as I’d like as most of the time I’m in London for work, rather than leisure. While I do try to find hotels in Covent Garden, I don’t…

Have you ever been somewhere that you had absolutely no expectations for, but upon visiting you were pleasantly surprised and fell instantly in love? Well, that’s exactly what happened to me in Rotterdam.  Before heading to #Traverse18 in Rotterdam, I did quite a lot of research on what to expect in the Dutch City.

No waiting, no airport security and basically no fuss. I am going to write a post on my whether or not…

I don’t know if it’s just me, but one of the best things about going to the airport is spending an unnecessary amount of time browsing literally EVERYTHING in Duty Free, right? Whether it’s giant bags of chocolate, ALL the designer perfume or cheaper-than average prices on your favourite makeup - World Duty Free is the best place to spend some time pre-flight. As a lover of all things makeup and beauty, I was so excited to receive an email inviting to me to an evening of #JetSetBeauty makeovers, treatments and luxury with World Duty Free at Birmingham Airport.

I’ve mentioned it several times on my blog now, but when I was much younger, I was scared of everything. From driving through the countryside to thunderstorms, I pretty much lived in a little bubble where I didn’t do anything I thought was too dangerous. Fast forward to now and I’m slowly starting to face each and everyone one of my fears, with a few of them conquered for sure (I now love driving through the country and thunderstorms fascinate me, especially lightening!) and plenty I need to conquer still. One I’ve really struggled with, other than heights, is open…
