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

Before I visited Iceland, I hated the idea of tours.

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 […]

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 […]

A Yorkshire Staycation

As much as I love jetting off abroad, there is just so much to explore in the UK. The trendy buzzword is a ‘staycation’ but really, it’s about appreciating what’s on your doorstep. Jumping on a plane is very exciting but sometimes, visiting somewhere like the Yorkshire Dales with Sykes Cottages can be just as […]

Winter Workwear

What to wear to work is a struggle at the best of times, but in winter, the question of an office-appropriate outfit gets harder when you add the need to keep warm. When all I want to do is put on some leggings and an oversized knitted jumper, it can be hard to decide what […]
