6 things to do when planning a road trip to keep you safe!

July 19, 2017 Lifestyle, Travel

In the five years that I’ve been driving it’s safe to say that I’ve been on my fair share of road trips. With family that live up North and us living about as South as you can go, we make fairly regular trips up the country. Through our own mistakes and experiences, I’ve put together my 6 tips for planning a successful road trip, including the importance of having an up to date MOT/service and things to avoid such asRead More

To the man on the train…

To the man on the train

Would you believe me if I told you that I only went to university because a man on a train told me to? Well, you better start believing it, because it’s true. I wouldn’t listen to anyone. My parents, my boyfriend, my work colleagues, my friends, their suggestions all fell on deaf ears. I’d spent my whole life in the education system, I’d come out with some very good grades but I’d had my first taste of real money andRead More

Coconut Lane – Note Pad Reviews + 20% OFF!

July 12, 2017 Favourites, Lifestyle, Review
Coconut Lane Note Pad

I’ve been a Coconut Lane fan for quite some time now, their absolutely gorgeous colour schemes and prints always catch my eye and there’s no surprise that I made a little purchase. Having recently started a new job I, of course, needed to buy some new notepads, because list making is the key to my organisation! My basket did originally contain 8 notepads, yes you read that right, but I dwindled them down to my favourite 3. The vibrancy of the coloursRead More

The Polish Bakery – Gluten Free Range

July 7, 2017 Lifestyle, Review

If you’re gluten free then you know the struggle to find a decent gluten free bread. We’ve all had the ‘hard as a rock’ variety, the ‘turns to dust’ variety and the ‘soggy bottom is an understatement’ variety. Before you know it you’ve resided yourself to a bread free life, because having a bunless burger is simply so much nicer than the dry, yet simultaneously soggy, gluten free offering you’re always given. I have to admit, having spent so many yearsRead More

A Ripple in the Ocean – Self Pep Talk

July 3, 2017 Lifestyle
Ripple in my ocean

So I’ve moved to London. Perhaps the most daring thing I’ve ever done was commit to renting a property for a year on a temporary two-month intern salary with only the hopes and dreams of a job to rely on. Some might call it a very stupid idea, and I have to admit at times I’ve thought that myself. But then I remember that nothing revolutionary comes from within your comfort zone. You have to put yourself out there for theRead More

The Budget Series – Sweet and Sour Pork With Crispy Trimmings

June 30, 2017 Recipe
Sweet and Sour Pork

Whenever I make the journey back home one of the first dishes I always ask my mum to make for me is her sweet and sour. Be it chicken, pork or veggie it’s the sauce that makes this dish, and who would have known that it could be so easy to make from scratch! I eat gluten and dairy free, so the costings for this are going to take that into account. Of course, if you can get regular soyRead More

The five reasons you aren’t getting engagement on your blog

The five reasons you aren't getting blog engagement

You’re not engaging yourself  One of the best ways to start seeing an increase in engagement on your blog is to start engaging with others. Drop comments on other people’s posts and leave your blog link as an invitation to comment back. I’m far more likely to comment on someone’s blog if they have taken the time to comment on mine. It’s the “you scratch my back and I’ll scratch yours” kind of philosophy. You have to log in toRead More

10 Tips for visiting Madrid!

June 26, 2017 Travel

Buy water from the local supermarkets – I found the hotel and cafes to be very over priced, I was charged €6 for a litre bottle that was only €0.70 in the local shop! If you’re going in summer bring lots and lots of sun cream. I saw so many very burnt people as I stood spraying myself with factor 50. The green man means you’re safe to cross, red man or amber means death. The local drivers will stopRead More
