LIFE LATELY | AUSTRALIA, REBRANDING, BLOG LOVE

So, I’ve got two things to tell you. Two things that I’m very excited about. And if you read my blog (if anyone does), it’ll affect what you’re going to be reading about in the future. I thought I’d share some blog love at the bottom too, because I don’t do that enough. I’m Moving to Australia If you don’t…

FLASHSTICKS / A FUN AND CHEAP AID IN …

One of my life goals is to become conversational in another language; I sucked at French at school, and when I went to university and was surrounded by people who could speak 6(!) languages I genuinely felt like I was missing a crucial aspect of life.  I’ve bought endless amount of beginner language books but end up forgetting about them.…

ANXIETY | THE PILL, WORK & CREATIVITY

Like an approximate 5% of the UK population (*NHS.uk) I have been diagnosed with Generalised Anxiety Disorder, a long-term condition where struggling with high levels of anxiety becomes a day to day challenge, and produces both physical and mental effects.  In my situation, I had never experienced any problems with anxiety until I went on contraceptive pills four years ago,…

DIY Travel: Resources and Advice

How truly brilliant is it that we now live in an age where you can plan and book an entire trip abroad whilst lying in bed! Although travel agents can find you some great package bargains, traveling to non-popular holiday destinations can require a bit of homework.  I’ve been doing this myself a lot recently so thought I’d make a…

Thoughts on my Masters Degree

Deciding to do a Masters degree requires a heck of a lot of thought. Unlike your Bachelors, they are not covered by the same Student Loans company (unless you do a combined degree, but we’ll discuss that later), and you’re probably having to look at self funding yourself through a year of education to the cost of around £6000, like…

Effects of Buffer on my Blog Stats

If you’re not using Buffer, then you really bloody should be! This website is making a massive impact on my blog stats, they’ve never been as consistent as they are right now, so lets take a look at what it’s all about… This may seem like a sponsored post, but it isn’t. I just love it. I hadn’t heard of Buffer until…

Book | Confess by Colleen Hoover

She’s a big name in New Adult, but before I went on holiday I hadn’t read anything by her. Figuring NA romance would make for great beach reading, I picked this up before leaving for Mexico, and it ended up being the perfect introduction to NA romance that I was craving! STORY At 21 years old Auburn is living what…

Thomson and Riu Jalisco

We booked or little break through Thomson, to save on the stress of booking everything separately – which I usually do – but it was so much cheaper to go to Mexico from the UK through a package holiday provider. We stayed in a Riu hotel, a popular chain for Thomson, but I had never stayed in one before. As…

Bucerias and Eateries

Our hotel was on a massive stretch of beach, literally, right on the beach. Take a right out of the Riu hotels on Banderes Bay and walk for about 45 minutes and you come to Buceries, a little town that we visited one morning. Colourful sports bars! Flee market entrance Bucerias doesn’t have much. The plaza is lined with friendly…
