Travelling during pregnancy

When a major life change occurs, it often leads you to reassess your pirorites. One of my main passions is travelling, and having spent the past 10 years exploring over 50 countries, I am determined to continue to do so. It may look slightly different and perhaps not be as frequent. That is because I am expecting to have a little person in my life. Yes, I am actually...

What to do when you find out you’re pregnant

If you’re reading this, chances are you’ve recently peed on a stick and got a few lines come up, or the word pregnant comes up on one of those fancy digital ones. Or, you’re just reading out of pure interest. Maybe you’re planning on having kids one day. By all means, read on. Finding out you’re pregnant I had suspected for a few days...

A bump in the road: my latest news and a change in pace ahead

I have always been the reflective sort. Often it is the little milestones or dates that occur and it makes me think flip, how did I get to this point? A few weeks ago my Facebook account decided to remind me that it was 5 years ago that I left the beautiful country of New Zealand. When I read that, and looked at my slightly tired but youthful 27 year old face,  I...

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...
