Motorcycling Around France: Day One

Day one of riding around France was a long one. The day started with us waking up exceptionally early, packing up the panniers and me swinging my leg over before we rode off into the sunrise… Kind of. And by kind of, I mean that that story may have included a slight lie because the […]

10 things I Learnt Riding To France For The First Time

Last week S and I set off for a quick European getaway by hopping on the bike and riding to France for the first time.     I say “we” took but what actually happened is S rode the bike and I sat on the back singing Spice Girls over the intercom with the occasional pip of childish glee […]

My Shop Is Live!

Is it possible to be dead and alive at the same time?     This is the question I find myself asking myself (because we’re all totally guilty of talking to ourselves amirite?) as I lay in the bath soaking away the stress of a weeks worth of 2am bedtimes, and as I lay there […]

Getting High At The Spinnaker Tower *

Finding new perspectives in life is one of my favourite things to do. Whether it’s a different perspective on beliefs, politics, or just quite literally a new visual perspective, and Spinnaker Tower has one of the best locally. The Spinnaker Tower opened in 2005 and was built as part of the Portsmouth Harbour Project. Since then it […]

Starting Your Own Business: Expectation Vs Reality

If you’ve had a little nosey on my “shop” tab, you’ll be aware that pretty soon I will be launching my shop section on my blog. It’s not going to be the typical blog shop where I post affiliate links to products and technology that I use but instead it’s going to be an actual shop with […]

A Bangkok Love Affair*

  Ever since my first visit in 2012 I’ve had a total love affair with Thailand. From the heat that scoops you up in its suffocating embrace the moment you step out of the airport, to the multitude of landscapes and eateries there are to explore, there’s much to love. Yet when I tell people […]

Chichester Through The Eyes Of A Local

As we sat around the coffee table she exhaled into her hot chocolate and sighed “Jeeeeez this place is so boring!” It was the first time we had all gotten together in a while and as murmurs of mutual agreement crept around the table the words were out before I could stop them. “How can you say […]

The Importance Of Travel Insurance

Growing up I’ve had a variety of job titles. Whether it was Waitress, Childcare Practitioner, Assistant Manager, Teacher or Social Media Manager, I’ve pretty much tried them all. But of all of the things I’ve learnt throughout my, diverse, career shall we say, one of the lessons which stood out the most was what I learnt […]

An Ode To Blogger Boyfriends

We don’t take advantage of you as much as the internet says we do but you are our handbag-holding, angle-finding photo-taking saviours. You’re more than an assistant but do way less work than a business partner. You listen to us talk about flat lays, SEO, WordPress themes, helpful plugins and ERMAGEEEEHD SO AND SO JUST LEFT […]

Get Ready…

“2017 is going to be my year” Is a sentence I’ve muttered to myself more over these past twelve days than I should probably admit. But 2017 is already off to a pretty solid start so I really don’t care how cliche I am. I spent the first week of the year bed-bound and full of flu which […]
