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,…

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,…

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…

Eight things that happened at Icelolly Holidays’ #BlogAtTheBeach Event

Can you imagine a party in the middle of winter with a tropical theme, a strict dress code of Christmas cheesiness and an abundance of social media, blogging and travel chat? Complete with cocktails, mulled wine and food of course. No? Well, Icelolly Holidays threw their #BlogAtTheBeach event, and that’s exactly what happened. Being a travel barmy girl (what, like you didn’t notice?!) who is always wanting to up her blog and social media game and is partial to a drink or two, I couldn’t say no when the invitation landed in my inbox. So, are you wondering what went…
