Is having a puppy hard work?

Having recently watched the incredible documentary by the internet’s big sister, Gracie, I was inspired to tell my story about owning a puppy. When thinking about getting my own puppy I thought it would be a walk in the park, literally. There is so much more to looking after a little life than you would …

Molde Photo Diary

One thing to note about Norway – the weather is unpredictable and completely contrasting in each area. After a beautiful day in Bergen, we arrived the following morning in a wet, grey Molde. We had no activities booked, although I’m not sure you’d see much from the view point with all those clouds, so really …

First stop: Bergen

Bergen is based on the South-West coast on Norway, surrounded by the fjords and mountains.

My top 5 eateries in Paphos

So I have just returned from the beautiful island on Cyprus. It is one of my favourite holiday destinations that offers culture, beaches, sunshine and plenty of food & cocktails. Rather than going all inclusive, self catering is always preferred as there are so many mouth watering restaurants available to try. Whilst I still have …

Fashion Essentials

I’m definitely not a style icon or fashion extraordinaire but this year I have found a few key pieces which I find really work for me that can be integrated into my wardrobe. I’m one of those people that once they find something they love, they will buy it in every single colour. Yep, that’s …

Updating the Dressing Room

I use the term ‘I’ve moved out’ very lightly when describing my situation as I still stop off at my parents house every weekday morning for breakfast and spend two nights sleeping there. Whilst they have ditched my bedroom and have moved me to the sofa bed upstairs, my ‘room’ has been transformed into a …
