For a great day out, look to the National Trust

I used to think that having a National Trust membership, meant that you were either old, boring or a family. However, I have held a National Trust membership for the past two years, and I can now revise my opinions. What is the National Trust and where is it? The National Trust is one of the UK’s largest charties, and was founded in 1895. Its purpose is to...

A spa with a view at QC Terme, Chamonix

Hands up who likes a spa? I know I do. Well how about a spa with a view? Before I go on, I’d like to clarify that I am not a seasoned spa goer. In fact, I can count on one hand the number of times I have been to a proper day spa. Whilst in Chamonix (France) recently, we stumbled across the QC Terme Spa, which is a newly opened Italian inspired spa. Chamonix is...

How to be happy in the now

”I will be happy when I graduate. I will be happy when I get that job. I will be happy when I get married. I will be happy when I loose some weight. I will be happy when I have my own home.” Any of those statements ringing true to you? I know they are for me.   For most of us, happiness is a goal. Something to constantly work toward and achieve. However, what happens...

Custom map prints for your home

When I look at a map, it can often bring back hundreds of memories for me. I am often asked where my favourite country in the World is. Having travelled to almost 50 countries, this is a difficult question to answer. I often say that there are several different locations that are incredibly special to me. They are for a number of reasons: 1. I have spent a long time...

Eco friendly travel fashion with Yakwood sunglasses

Sunglasses are the one travel accessory I never forget to pack. The slighest hint of sunshine, and my shades are out. On average I take a flight every other month, sometimes more. In fact, when I looked back on the past 6 years of travelling, I average at 21 flights per year. This year alone, I have taken 16 individual flights. As a frequent traveller, you would...

Why you should consider donating to your local foodbank

“Oh, they’re on offer!” I exclaim, as I throw a share bag of chocolate buttons into the trolley. “They’re only a pound” I say to my husband as he looks at me disapprovingly. An additional £1 isn’t going to make a difference on our weekly shopping cost. However, for some people £1 may be their budget to feed themselves for the...

So, how is married life? Post wedding musings from a newlywed

Yay, it is June. Summer is here, which also means that ‘wedding season’ is here too (though if you want to save money, you’ll get married out of season). I have been married for 3 months, so it now feels like good time to share a post wedding blog with you. There is nothing quite like a major life event, or milestone to provoke people asking those...

Saving our species with socks: World Earth Day 2018

The way in which we live has had a huge impact on our world. You are never too far away from a headline about how human activity is ruining our earth. From pollution to global warming. We are literally destroying our world just by living. As well as killing our world, we are also killing the precious things in it. According to the International Union for Conservation...

What you need to know about planning a Wedding

Weddings are momentous occasions, but planning them can feel like quite a mamoth task. There are so many elements to them, and deciding on each can take weeks. Last spring, I got engaged whilst on a trip in Switzerland. It was an exciting time, and we had lots of celebrations with friends and family initially afterwards. Our celebrations quickly progressed into full...

Has social media has ruined the travel experience?

This is a post that I have wanted to write for some time. I have touched on it in a few other posts in the past. That is, social media and its influence in our lives. I’ve written about how blogging can make you unsocial, the Korean (and now the World’s) love of technology and how to have a socal media free Christmas. However in this, I wanted to talk...
