The votes are in, and I’m going to Rome!

With so many cities, resorts and landmarks in the world that I am dying to see, booking trips can become quite the challenge. Do we go to that quaint village we’ve been wanting to visit for a while? Or shall we go for some winter sunshine? Maybe we should go to that resort where they hold an annual festival? My boyfriend and I recently managed to whittle it down and decided we wanted a city break. But the question still stood: which city?! And that’s where you guys came in. I gave my followers on Twitter the opportunity to decide…

Seven Things to do with a Week in Paphos

When you consider the collection of clear, sandy beaches,  the labyrinths of ancient history to explore, the lively towns and bars (not to mention the all year round sun!) it’s no surprise that Paphos is one of the most popular Cyprus resorts no matter what time of year you visit. I experienced Cyprus for the very first time this year myself, and I can safely say it was the ideal place to go on holiday – lots of sunshine, plenty of cocktails, numerous things to see and do and a stunning back drop to go with it. Whilst I didn’t…

42 Blogmas and Christmas Post Ideas

December is here and so the countdown to Christmas has well and truly started! This year I’ve decided to challenge myself by taking part in Blogmas (and I’m probably going to fail miserably because I haven’t prepared very well!). For those of you who aren’t so sure what Blogmas is, it’s something bloggers take part in from the 1st of December through to Christmas Day, and they post daily. Posts are usually Christmassy but that’s not a necessity. To start the month off, I’ve compiled a list of Blogmas post ideas for those of you that may want to take…

Do bloggers really have to be relatable?

A spontaneous rambling post. That’s what today’s post is. A stupid post full of my thoughts and feelings and opinions and basically just me unloading onto a webpage because a tweet doesn’t contain enough characters and none of my Facebook friends care about this. Bloggers. I’ve seen so many tweets flying around these past few weeks putting down successful bloggers for no longer being relatable, and basically slating them for “changing”. If you don’t wanna read their blogs, that’s fine, but to put down and slag off people just because their stuff is no longer relatable to you, nuh uh…

Dreaming of a Cosy Wooden Interior at Christmas with Falegnameria Bariza

The cold weather is creeping upon us more and more, and winter is just around the corner (as is Christmas!). I may be jetting off to Tenerife in just over a week to catch myself some winter sun, but that doesn’t mean I don’t appreciate a cosy night in knowing it’s cold outside. In fact, since coming across Falegnameria Bariza, woodworking specialists from Cortina d’Ampezzo (Italy), I’ve been scrolling through their images and imagining spending a cold winter’s night tucked up a wooden house. Falgnameria Bariza have been woodworking art specialists for almost a century and through three family generations. …

A VIP Airport Experience with World Duty Free

Let’s be honest: hanging around in an airport for three hours whilst you wait for your flight can be quite the bore sometimes. I usually get my bags checked in, head straight for a mandatory pre-flight Burger King (it’d be rude not to, right?), browse the shops and wish I was rich enough to buy everything, and then find myself sat around just waiting and w a i t i n g for my gate number. Just get me in the sunshine already, pur-lease. But, this wasn’t the case when I flew to Cyprus last month. In fact, I had…

I Planned a Halloween Party Blogger Event! #BloggerHalloweenParty

Have you ever planned something and on the run up to it you think it’s gonna be a flop? You consider every bad scenario possible and what you’ll do if they actually happen? You maybe even consider cancelling it altogether, just to save yourself the humiliation. But then. BUT THEN. It turns out to be pretty much the best thing ever and you want to relive it again and again? Well, that’s what happened when Kirsty and I planned #BloggerHalloweenParty at the end of last month. We had tonnes of ignored emails, an abundance of stresshead moments, plenty of reservations,…

Appreciating the Unexpected Surprises when you Travel Without Plans

In case you haven’t noticed so far (and you haven’t, wth?!), I am a sucker for a getaway. Whether it’s a quick city break, a cheap and cheerful staycation, or an all out luxury sunshine holiday, there’s something that makes me so happy about getting away from everyday life. I mean, browsing the web for holidays I can’t afford but dream about pretty much daily is literally a hobby of mine. But the really exciting part? Booking a break on a whim. Going away with no plans. Just letting each day happen as it comes. And when you travel without plans,…

Ultimate Relaxation in Cyprus – Ayii Anargyri Natural Healing Spa Resort, Paphos

This year, I was lucky enough to cross another country off of my list when I experienced Cyprus for the very first time in October thanks to On the Beach. After being chosen to work with them on their winter sun holidays, I jetted off to stay at two of their top neighbouring hotels in Paphos. Having never travelled outside of the summer months, I was a tad dubious as to whether Cyrpus would still be as warm as I’ve been used to on other holidays. I needn’t have worried. As soon as we stepped off the plane at the…
