A Long Weekend in BERLIN!

Hello all!   This post is embarrassingly late but fortunately I do have multiple excuses: firstly, my boyfriend actually wanted to make his debut on my blog and write this one himself, but, alas, it is weeks later and he still hasn’t got around to it – so Tom, you missed your chance! Secondly, job…

A Week in the Mountains – and Happy New Year!

It’s been four months since my last post, *hangs head in shame* and to be honest, I have a whole manner of excuses. I’ve lacked inspiration (i.e. not been on holiday – bar a weekend in Edinburgh which was beautiful and lovely but I didn’t take enough photos), had far too much uni work and…

The (Other?) City of Love – Verona.

My latest (and last – sigh) escape of the summer was to the beautiful city of Verona with my lovely boyfriend – it was also probably the holiday I’ve been most looking forward to. Tom and I had said all summer that we wanted to go away together, but didn’t until a few weeks ago…

My Five Favourite Bookshops.

As a self confessed book lover, I’ve spent many an hourĀ in a bookshop. In fact, it’s definitely mine and my boyfriend’s favourite past time – going to a bookshop, for us, is like going on a day out. So, I thought I’d share with you my top 5 favourites that I’ve come across, most of…

A (VERY) Chilled Fortnight in the South of France.

Ahh… the annual family holiday. We look forward to it all year and then spent the entire time wanting to kill one another. Unsurprisingly, this year was no different *disclaimer – I do love my family and don’t actually wish death upon them…* I come from a rather large family (my mum is one of…

The City of Love.

A couple of weeks ago I spent a romantic weekend in Paris with my boyfriend (as always, I’m a fortnight late on posting…) And although I kept photo taking to a minimum, as we both promised to try and keep our phones at bay during the trip, I thought I’d share some of the ones…

Gondola? 5 days in Venice.

A few weeks ago, I was lucky enough to jump on my dad’s holiday with my grandma to Venice. (And just so we get this out of the way now – no, my parents haven’t split – my mum had to stay behind to look after my sister who’s doing her A-level exams.) I’ve been…
