I love zombies… but could I actually survive a zombie apocalypse?

Is the zombie apocalypse looming? Highly unlikely. But being a big ol’ zombie fan and a bit of a geek, it’s something that I’ve subconsciously prepared for in the back of my mind. Gotta have some sort of plan, right? I watch The Walking Dead religiously (and attend Walker Stalker Con every year, of course), have played zombie games back since the original Resident Evil, and get a sick thrill from any movie that involves undead tearing apart the living with their icky undead teeth. Yummy, right? But despite my love of all things zombie, would I actually make it…

8 things I love about being single (for now, at least!)

After meeting my first boyfriend when I was just 17, and spending almost seven years with him, single life hit me pretty hard when he split up with me earlier this year. I’d never been a single adult, let alone a single adult who’d just started her career, had a mortgage to pay and had known nothing but one guy for the past seven years. Talk about bad timing, right? But I soon managed to spin my situation into something positive. I considered it an adventure, a new chapter, an opportunity for me to be selfish for a while. And…

That time I was on stage with Sigala

I’ve often said that money is best spent on experiences, so you know you’ve hit the jackpot when the job that earns you that money is what ends up giving you the experiences. For those of you that don’t know, I work in digital marketing at the University of Hull, and I bloody love my job. My team are seriously the best bunch of people, I genuinely enjoy the day to day stuff, and my overtime in the past few months included meeting Nick Grimshaw, going to an adults night in a play area and attending Big Weekend. Not the…

Hand Luggage Essentials

Regardless of whether I’m getting ready for a long trip in a beautiful sunshine destination or simply packing for a short city break, I find deciding what to put in my hand luggage can be just as much of a struggle as whittling down what I’m going to pack in my suitcase. (I’m totally guilty of being an overpacker!) There are, however, a few hand luggage essentials that make it into my carry on bag without fail…   Passport Let’s start with the thing you definitely will not be getting far without – your passport. Yes, this may seem like…

Remembering to enjoy the adventure

Despite always loving holidays and weekend trips, I’ve not always been a travel blogger. In fact, my blog started off as a space for me to review books and beauty products. Soon I found myself thinking, however, that if I love travelling so much, why wasn’t I documenting that instead?  It’s so much easier to write about something you’re really, truly passionate about, right? Though something hit me whilst in Paris with my mum earlier this year. It was my mum’s first time there, and yet I found myself stressing over getting the perfect picture rather than showing her the…

I donned the cap and badge and made my own Big Mac!

I am notorious among my friends for being the one that can never order anything as it appears on the menu. I always have to tweak something. “Is it possible to get that plain?” “Can I have that without sauce please?” “Can I swap this for that?”

You get the idea.

And with a fussy appetite normally comes a longer wait. Especially at a drive through. “Could you just park in the lay by and we’ll bring it out to you, please?”

I’ve recently discovered, however, that at McDonald’s, waiting longer for a customised order is a thing of the past. That’s right. I can be as fussy as I want and still get my grub within the same time. And it’s all thanks to their new made to order system.

I’ve Fallen in Love with Wrocław

I’m normally a sucker for warm, poolside sunbeds and sunshine destinations, but after vowing to explore more countries this year, I crossed a country off my list that had quite honestly never appealed to me previously: Poland. 🇵🇱 And it took me completely by surprise. Attracted by an absolute bargain price (less than £100 for flights and 3 nights accommodation – yes please!), Kirsty Leanne and I found ourselves booking a random trip to a city we’d never even heard of – Wrocław. And whilst I was super excited for a girly break and discovering somewhere new, I didn’t realise just how much Wrocław would…

48 Hours in Paris, France

Paris: the city of love. And probably one of the most famous cities in the world. Look up a list of places to visit before you die, and you’ll find it there somewhere. I’m pretty vocal about the fact I always want to return to Paris no matter how many times I’ve been, and so when my mum and I had a stay in Bordeaux booked, it would have been a crime not to head up to Paris too, right?! And whilst there, I kept a mini diary of everything we got up to… 🚗 Friday 🏙 4.44pm After a wonderful…

Looking back at March 2017: Zombies, Cats, France and Happiness

Bad blogger alert! My March round up is coming to you 13 days into April. A tad late, I know, but March was a busy one for me and I haven’t had a free weekend for about 10 weeks now. Busy, busy bee. 🐝 As you may know, my boyfriend of almost 7 years broke up with me in February, and I was devastated. When March rolled around, I made sure to plan lots of fun things to keep me happy. And so, March had a cracking start for me. The first day of it was spent having a fun…
