6 Tips on Being Prepared for Airport Parking

Summer is slowly creeping up on us, and I can’t wait. (Creep quicker summer, I’ve missed you.) And with summer comes, of course, lots of summer holidays and city breaks. Cocktails by the pool, exploring idyllic streets, discovering somewhere new and finding fun things to do. But before all of that, chances are you’ll have to make your way to an airport. For some of us, this means an excitement-filled and adrenaline-fuelled drive to the airport. And here are a few things I think you should be prepared for when it comes to airport parking… Be prepared to book early…

From Old Town to Luxury Pools: The Other Side of Dubrovnik, Croatia

Drenched in history and boasting a number of baroque buildings, Dubrovnik looks like every travel blogger’s dream. Having never visited before, I can’t speak from experience, but I find it hard to believe that anyone could visit and not walk down the streets in awe or be inspired by the Old Town churches and marble streets, not to mention the glistening Adriatic Sea. The beautiful city has leapt even more so into the limelight after becoming the gorgeous filming location for the oh-so-popular TV series, Game of Thrones. (C’mon, even if you don’t watch it yourself, we all know someone who…

Celebrities and Cosplay at #WSCLondon: Walker Stalker Con 2017

Last weekend, I spent my time standing in queues, spending lots of money, getting attacked by zombies, complimenting cosplayers and meeting the cast of The Walking Dead. Yes. My brother and I had our second visit to Walker Stalker Con London. The popular convention was here on the 4th and 5th of March and was held in the spacious Olympia London. It’s the only Walker Stalker Con currently to be held outside of the US, and so thousands of people gathered from not just Britain, but all over Europe, for lots of undead excitement. Needless to say, the event was…

2017 Travel and Adventure Plans (So Far…)

It’s no secret that I love to travel. A lot. And this year more than ever I am doing my best to squeeze in as many weekends in the sun and city breaks as I can. If there’s one thing I love doing, it’s capturing my adventures in photographs. I’ve really tried to up my photography game on my blog recently, and thanks to my amazing Olympus PEN E-PL7, I’ve definitely improved. My poor baby is broken at the minute though and about to be sent off for repairs *sob*. Whilst I await her return, I can’t help browsing cameras,…

Looking Back at February 2017: Absolute Heartbreak, Friends and the Future

Ah, hello little blog. Long time no see. You may have noticed in my January look back that I was feeling motivated and getting ready to take on February. Yeah. That didn’t happen. In fact, February ended up being a whole month of feeling crap, crying my eyes out and not being able to sleep. My boyfriend of almost 7 years ended our relationship. And it was shit. Absolute shit. Nothing bad happened, no shouting matches, there was no scandal. He just decided it was time to end things and let me spread my wings and start a new chapter…

Looking back at January 2017: Pride, upset, motivation and a funeral

Well, well, well. Whilst we all spent our time talking about how 2016 was the worst year yet, little did we know what 2017 was about to throw at us. It’s been a bit of a mixed bag for me. The month started with a lovely stay at Ox Pasture Hall (it was amazing, if you’re wondering) and me feeling entirely driven to accomplish my 2017 goals (which I am still determined to do), but I’m ending it in a trough rather than a peak. But we can come to that later. After a nice, long 10 day break over…

Capital Coast Resort, Paphos, Cyprus: Hotel Review

When I think of October, I tend to think of orange autumn leaves, cold drizzly rain and creamy hot chocolates by the fire. A pretty standard autumntime in the UK, right? But October had a bit of a different vibe for me last year. Trade the orange autumn leaves for red-yellow sunsets, the drizzly rain for poolside splashes and the hot chocolates for cocktails by the sea, and that pretty much sums up my time at Capital Coast Resort in Cyprus last October. Having spent a few days nestled between the trees of Ayii Anargyri already, relaxing and putting our feet up,…

Cakes, crafting and quizzes: Lydia’s, Hull

It’s a street known for its bars, charity shops and restaurants, but tucked up in a corner under the bridge on Newland Avenue sits Lydia’s, a cute and quaint cake café. With quirky, charming decor, a cosy atmosphere and an abundance of sweet treats and drinks, it’s the perfect place to relax and catch up with friends, especially on these cold, dark evenings. When Lydia invited me and some other Hull Bloggers to go along and sample her delicious cakes and join in with some crafting activities, how on earth could I refuse?! A night of cakes and crafting with…

Cocktail Diaries: Playa De Las Americas, Tenerife

It’s no secret that I love a cocktail or two… or ten. What’s not to like? They taste good, they’re refreshing and they quite often look pretty too. I usually opt for Sex on the Beach pretty much every single time (yes, I’m still talking about cocktails!), but when I spent a week in Tenerife last month, I decided to broaden my horizons by venturing into the land of new cocktails. With a few Sex on the Beach in between, of course. 🍹 Naturally, being a blogger, I photographed the very first cocktail I drank by the pool on the…
