Hot Days in Miami

Wynwood was by far my favourite place in Miami, it’s colourful walls and independent shop culture is what I love to find when I visit a new place. Steve and I visited on the hottest day of our trip, so we spent most of it ducking in and out of shops to catch some of the air conditioning! After discovering Zac’s colourful bakery we stumbled upon the Wynwood Walls, a collection of beautifully painted walls from artists from around the world.

How to make a silver ring taster course

On Wednesday evening last week I did something a little different; I travelled up to Hatton Garden in London to create a silver ring from scratch at the London Jewellery School. The course was a Christmas present from my mum, but it was such an enjoyable evening that I thought I would share my experience with you guys too!

  1. Summer Sequins Vacay Vibes
  2. New Look Wish You Were Here
  3. Eugenia Kim No Comment Hat
  4. ASOS Beach Babe Hat
  5. ASOS Chase The Sun Hat
  6. Or make your own and learn here!

Hope you’re enjoying this lovely weather in the UK at the moment and if it carries on a beach hat may come in handy!

Where to buy homeware

Steve and I have nearly been in our flat for 5 years and it’s only just starting to look the way we want it to. It’s been a long journey that begun with 1970’s green carpets (even in the bathroom), broken sinks and a back garden with no back door. We’ve saved and worked hard to create the little flat of our dreams, which I’m so excited to share when it’s all finally finished.

Sunday Favourites

I know I haven’t written one of these posts in a while, but I wanted to bring them back on a more of an ad-hoc basis. I felt like some weeks I was posting these for the sake of posting and felt like some of the content lacked a bit of depth. After a while away I’ve decided to change these up a bit. Create a little curation of what I’ve been loving so you’ll still have a Sunday favourites but it might have a different take on each post.

What to watch on Netflix

Some weeks are so busy or head-space filling that I find one of the only ways to switch off is to sit and immerse myself in a good series. With it being bank holiday weekend in the UK, I thought I’d share some of the series that I’ve enjoyed on Netflix recently. I would also love to hear if you have any favourites too!

10 Things you should know about owning a dog

I’ve been a dog owner for just over six years. Though it’s hard to get my head around the fact I’ve had a little buddy by my side for that long, it’s even harder to imagine life without them. Steve and I got our first dog, Bai when we were 22 years old; in hindsight, it’s quite young to have full time care of a dog and I wouldn’t say we were very prepared for the adventures and misadventures our little buddies could bring!

I’ve never written a post about Bai and Blue, so I thought I would share what I’ve learned about owning a dog over the past few years. These are my own personal thoughts and I’m by no means an expert, but if you are looking to get your first dog, these are a few things to bear in mind.

I went to an all girls school and liked it…

I once asked someone if they’d attended an all girls school growing up and their exact response was; ‘My parents would never do that to me’. At first I laughed it off and then I realised that this is a common reaction when I tell people that I spent most of my teenage years in a school filled with 300 girls. There’s this weird misconception that when you go to an all girls school, 100% of the girls are boy mad and it’s the bitchiest and worst place you’ll ever step foot in. In some cases I’m not going to lie, this could be the case, but my experience taught me a very positive side to being surrounded by a group of girls your own age for 6 years and I thought I’d share them with you.

A Day Trip to Cambridge

You may have seen my Twitter post earlier this week about Lintenair. It’s a new travel brand that claimed to introduce city centre terminals, queue-free boarding and no baggage weight restrictions. It turns out Lintenair is actually an anagram of Trainline and all of Lintenair’s benefits already exist. Steve and I decided to test these out for ourselves and took a day out to Cambridge using a mobile train ticket booked with Trainline’s handy app.

We decided to visit a city we’d never been to before. After much deliberation, we settled on Cambridge. It’s one of the famous university towns here in the UK and when you walk around it you feel like you’re on the set of Harry Potter (always a bonus!).
