A Taste of Spring at Browns, Cambridge

Browns is a national chain but the Cambridge restaurant is particularly lovely, thanks to its location just across the road from the Fitzwilliam Museum. A day of museum explorations followed by a truly British afternoon tea or dinner? Yes please! I’ve visited Browns before in both Cambridge and Leeds so when I was invited to […]

Meat Free Mondays

I’m always looking for a challenge and my latest challenge is a current foodie trend; meat free Mondays. As I’ve mentioned before, I’m all about the balance this year, so I loved the concept of cutting out meat for one day a week and GoodLife came to the rescue with their veggie-packed vegetarian meals. *This […]

The Four Most Popular Tours in Iceland – Should You Bother?

Before I visited Iceland, I hated the idea of tours. Too often when travelling I see hoards of tourists pour out of buses, take over a tourist destination, photograph everything, look at nothing and leave.

3 Days In Iceland On A Budget

Iceland seems to be the place to go at the moment. For the last few months, every time I open Instagram, I’ve been bombarded with images of this beautiful county and it’s a place which has been on my bucket list for as long as I can remember. Fed up of feeling jealous over everyone’s […]

Printing Travel Memories

I’ve had a fantastic travel start to 2017 with an incredible trip to Iceland, a country which has long been on my bucket list, quickly followed by visiting Edinburgh for the first time. I’m heading to Rome in a couple of weeks time and then, in April, I’m off to Prague. I’m aiming to visit […]

Styling a One Shoulder Dress

I can firmly say I’ve found “my hemline” – the midi. I’m obsessed; it’s grown up, looks like I’ve made an effort, flatters my legs and as long as I turn anything up a few inches, suits my short frame. So today’s outfit features yet a one shoulder midi dress, from Quiz Clothing, and some […]

Swap Your Unhealthy Office Lunch for Soup

Back in January, I made my New Year’s Resolutions to get more active and improve my work-life balance – and both of these also relate to eating well. I’m a typical yo-yo eater, who swaps between eating well and then completely falling off the bandwagon. When Baxters challenged me to take part in their Souper Swap […]

4 Things I Learnt By Going Booze Free in January

Dry January has been around for a few years now but this year it seems that more people than ever before have given up the booze for January. After the indulgences of Christmas and New Year, it’s no wonder that we want a break from alcohol and Dry January is the perfect way to do […]

5 Tips For A Better Night’s Sleep

I honestly don’t know anyone who claims to always get a good night’s sleep; it feels like a problem we are all trying to fix. Along with my new focus on a better work-life balance and my other New Year’s Resolutions, I’m trying to sort out my sleeping pattern. A great night’s sleep sets you […]

I Solemnly Swear… New Year’s Resolutions

It’s that time of year again… time for a “new year, new me” and everyone is talking about how they’re going to change their life. Personally, I don’t have a problem with New Year’s Resolutions – they are a great opportunity to make changes in your life and why not choose a time of year […]
