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 […]

Things To Do In: Chichester

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.

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 […]

The Burger Shop Co

Finding new places to eat is one of my favourite things to do,  so when I heard that The Burger Shop Co, the new burger shop in Arundel, had opened I knew it was time I stopped by for a visit. The Burger Shop Co’s mission is simple: To serve proper burgers, beers and cocktails. […]

My First Tattoo

Think before you ink.     It’s a mantra I have been repeating to myself for years. Not because I’m particularly afraid of committing to having something which will be on me for the rest of my life, but more because when you choose to get something which will be on you for the rest […]

A New Year

  As the car door slammed and the stones grinded beneath my feet as I made my way out of the carpark I took a deep breath. For today was the day I would finally make it to the top of Kingley Vale.   I probably should have picked a better day for it to […]

Focus

As I sit here writing this I’m laying on my bed cocooned in a duvet burrito and a feeling of utter bliss. There will be no pictures of that because with the exception of all the fucking swearing I do, this is a (relatively) family friendly blog, but the reason for those happy feelings of contentedness is not because […]

Perception

Perception is a funny thing. If you’re new here you may have missed this post which I wrote back when it wasn’t minus ridiculous degrees. If you don’t have time to read it, it was a personal post I wrote about being vulnerable, growing up and the emotions which accompany both and I honestly didn’t expect […]
