It’s been quite a few months since I properly caught up with my good friend Helen and so we’ve had to make do instead with text messages that at times resemble mini essays. (Lucky we both enjoy writing them!). I’ve also had some important moments of reflection of late that I need more grounding and … More Our Y-Spa wonder day!

I love how much he planned it and how far in advance- because that’s what I’M like for events, let alone for one … More Cadiz for Ricky’s birthday
Paris. I never thought I would enjoy it as much as I did! This is nothing more than due to, despite the fact I live in the UK’s capital city, the fact I would prefer to see other countries smaller cities than their capital. I was bowled over by Paris and how beautiful it was. … More LovingLivingLondon’s Guide to Paris
17-21 Sept 2016 Every couple of years, my mum and I like to get away together for a mother and daughter break.

I love to get away. Travel is so so important to me, and it’s when I feel you can be most free. Holidays are special, but it’s when you are fortunate enough to get away for a longer stint and FORGET about the rat race, that you truly realise how special life is. You get … More Throwback to Europe travel, 2015. My month of sunshine!
Oh Brighton. 3 degrees and freezing by the seaside. We both went away to Brighton feeling a little unwell in ourselves, therefore this coastal break came at a difficult time, but we had such a lovely time and Brighton is so beautiful! The original intention was of course, for me to do my half marathon. … More A short break away- Brighton
Sri Lanka! 16 June to the 2nd July 2017. Becoming increasingly popular amongst Western tourists, and rightly so. It is a beautiful country, with much history, beauty and variety of scenery. Centuries old palatial cities, supreme coast to surf, bright colours and perfect pictures abundant. I have to admit, it has never been on … More Backpacking in Sri Lanka
