Dreaming of becoming a digital nomad – the lowdown

The world is evolving, and digital technology is unquestionably at the heart of these progressions. This has opened up a whole realm of new working opportunities for the modern generation, my generation, not to mention the generations to come. With the introduction of ever smarter technologies and travel becoming more widely accessible I am just one of many who’d love…

The Culpeper – Perhaps my new favourite London pub

Until I moved to London I took a ‘good pub’ for granted. They just pop up in the countryside, in the middle of nowhere, fire roaring, service friendly. Somehow London has managed to take the pub and turn them into soul-less tourist drinking traps; serving the same drinks with the same sticky menus and leaving you longing for the long-lost…

Coming down gently: Weekend trips to tide you over between holidays

I love travelling. That adrenaline as you land, the smell of a different city and the tastes of a new cuisine. If I won the lottery tomorrow I’d travel the world, slowly, taking in all that it had to offer. Once you get the travel bug, nothing’s worse than those periods between trips. For me these periods can be lengthy,…

Have I ever told you that I believe in fairies? No? Not that I see them flying around, or that I expect to walk in on one taking a rest on my curtain pole. But the idea of fairies. The magical, otherwordly, ethereal feeling of fairies. It’s hard to explain. My first introduction to the fairy world was one I’ll…

‘Fall in love with taking care of yourself: Mind, Body and Spirit’

What makes you feel good? Is it freshly painted nails? Fresh bedding? A large glass of your favourite wine? Or a combination of all three? The thing about what makes YOU feel good, is that it isn’t something I can teach you. I can’t tell you what makes you feel good, but I can tell you what makes ME feel…

My morning drink for de-bloating

My stomach and I have never really been friends. With a gluten and dairy intolerance and unpredictable IBS I seem to spend most of my life bloated and with some sort of discomfort. The few mornings that I wake up with a flat, non-distended stomach, feel like a blessing and I’m slowly finding ways to ensure that they come around…

Primark and Tiger homeware haul!

Ok, I’ll admit it, I used to be a bit judgemental of Primark. Obviously, it was all awful quality, trashy and so not my style, but over the years I’ve developed a new appreciation for the brand and have found some amazing pieces of clothing, jewellery and homeware that have lasted the test of time, and gained me a few…
