Road Trip With a Difference – The Scottish Highlands

September 19, 2018

We had been warned about the famous Scottish rain. We had been told that Scotland only experiences 57 totally dry days a year where the ground isn’t soaked with rain. Well. The weather Gods were shining on us. In our 6 days in Scotland we saw rain one day, for about an hour. Give me a bagpipe and call me a Highland Coo, we had…

Climbing Ben Nevis – Conquering More Than A Mountain

September 13, 2018

  Stepping out of the car, the butterflies in my stomach were dancing the quickstep. Rolling and pitching, producing a feeling of half excitement, half terror. Nervous laughter went round the four of us as we looked up and saw the sign, Welcome to Ben Nevis. This was it. It was happening. We were attempting to hike to the top of the UK’s biggest mountain,…

Boa vista, Cape Verde – An Island of Two Sides

September 7, 2018

We have just returned from 12 days on the Cape verde island of Boa Vista. If you don’t know where Cape verde is, its a collection of 10 islands, around a 6 hour flight from London, just off the coast of Africa. An increasingly popular holiday destination now, but the islands have a rather dark past as in the 1400’s, they were used to trade…

Mary Poppins Afternoon Tea – Practically Perfect at Aqua Shard London

August 13, 2018

“Open different doors. You may find another you there, that you never knew was yours. Anything can happen” I love this quote from the Mary Poppins film. As a little girl I think it was possibly the first time that I realised anything was possible. That we shouldn’t ever write ourselves off. I have always remembered it, and Mary Poppins was my hero for a…

A Controversial Topic – Are Bloggers Bribing People??

August 11, 2018

Organic growth. Real following. Engaged audience. All terms banded about in the blogosphere every day. Now, this one is a post that has sat in my drafts for about 10 months. The reason being that I really, really didn’t want it to cause offence, or feel like its my strong opinion or make anyone feel a bit crappy. I have no strong opinion on it…

Urban Decay BackTalk Palette – A Perfect Holiday Makeup Item

August 5, 2018

So, for fear of being one of those people, can I please start this with a blatant beg?? I have finally, after about eight months of trying, managed to implement a newsletter onto the blog. I cannot tell you how happy this makes me, as me and technology are not usually friends! But, I did it all by myself, and I am happy about that…
