Bournemouth Road Trip

    Girl and boy at beach bournemouth road trio

    This year has been a rollercoaster. I posted about my happy place a few months back and created a vlog on you tube here. Earlier this month, Matt and I hopped in the car for another road trip and this time we were able to meet some friends, whilst keeping to government guidelines in the UK. It was the breathe of fresh air that we needed, and I feel like I captured our mini adventure so well in this clip. There are a few common factors here that I’m starting to notice in each of these mini adventures we seem to be taking this year. Here’s three things I like…


    My Day At The Beach

    On a recent break from work, my boyfriend and I got in the card and drove to Bournemouth. This was before the rush ensued. We don't live too far and after months of being cooped up at home with no outdoor space it was the perfect escape for me to breathe and reset after a busy few months dealing with a pandemic, working full-time and managing the tensions that come with life in general. It was definitely time for a break.


    Six TV Shows To Watch At Home

    During the last few months we’ve found a lot more time to entertain ourselves in the evenings which has lead to picking up and finishing those lingering series we’ve been aiming to catch up with. Now we’ve pretty much exhausted most of the series in our top list of things to watch, we wanted to share our top five to inspire you. Let us know if you’ve watched any, or if you are planning too. If you have a top recommended show then we’d love to hear that too. 1. Parks & Recreation, Amazon Prime I started watching this back in March from season 1 in Netflix. These 20 min…


    Wild horses and beach huts

    This weekend I achieved an unwritten goal by exploring Bournemouth beach and taking a long-awaited picture of their famous beach huts. I was a magical adventure that I didn’t anticipate. I mean... who knew we had thousands of wild horses running around the UK? I didn’t. The day started with a good old trip to Starbucks.


    Hats for days

    Hello beautiful! It may have been a rainy bank holiday Monday, but have to say I am thankful to have spent a little more time at my desk preparing for the week ahead. I’m not sure I’ve introduced you to my home yet, but here is a sneak peek into my new hub. I’ve deliberately drenched it in fairy lights, and cute little reminders and scents that are really just a way to lure me to write, or think. Oh have you spotted the book on my desk? Yes, that is T.D Jakes new book that arrived last week. I am super duper excited to delve into this. This man is…


    First class down memory lane

    There are many great stories that have come from my Christmas break in Scotland this year. I am currently travelling south on the 1pm train; Highlander Chieftain from Edinburgh to London Kings X. Thanks to a generous family member I am travelling First Class in both directions on this trip, and enjoying the luxuries of tea, wine, food and snacks for free! It sure does beat the 10hr Megabus journey, which I plan to never experience again! Whilst on this fast train to London, with the biggest suitcase in history, we (my friend and I) decided to make the most of it by taking a double trip down memory lane,…


    My Paris adventure

    One week ago today I set off on my first Eurostar adventure to the romantic city of Paris. I can’t tell you how easy it was to get the train from St Pancras International. We set off rather early to get the most of the weekend; leaving London at 7.31am. Getting through security with a morning coffee was as easy as 1,2,3. I fell asleep about 15minutes in the trip, and woke up around 30mins before arriving in Paris Nord station. Yes, that’s right. I slept through my first channel tunnel experience. Still, after a sleepy start, we were off on an adventure to experience the french underground transport, the…
