East Africa Travel Diaries- Kilimanjaro

On the first night of our trip we had an unexpected stay in Kilimajaro. Ben and Nicole were running a day behind, as the road from Lusaka to Arusha was under construction; so their pace was pretty slow going!

Sunday Favourites Holiday Edition

I’m currently writing this post from a small island just off mainland Greece; we’ve been here for the last six days enjoying the sunshine, blue seas and copious amounts of feta cheese. It’s actually Steve and I’s first proper beach holiday since our honeymoon, though we travel frequently, it’s not often we travel somewhere with the main intention to just relax and not create content. However, I have found myself getting that pang of ‘I should be doing something right now’ and then reminding myself that it’s ok to take time out once in a while.

Thoughts from Paris

You guys may have figured out that Paris is one of my favourite places to visit. It feels so close to home and I love the fact you can jump on the Eurostar at Kings Cross and help yourself to an authentic croissant or two in just over two hours. On this trip, we somehow managed to time our visit with 37 degree heat! I thought I’d share some of the places we visited, as I feel like every time we stay, we get to know the city a little more.

A Lesson on Self Confidence in NYC

I’ve been sitting on this post for a while. We shot the images after a long day of exploring in New York and it was the last location we came to. The street was super busy and a lot of people were queuing for a photo opportunity in front of the wall. When it came to my turn I was fine, up until a stranger came up to me and made a comment about me posing by the wall.

Exploring Wynwood Walls

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!

There’s something about putting on a big floppy beach hat that automatically makes me think holiday. Add a fun slogan to it and it’s the perfect holiday accessory! As an addition to my tutorial I thought I’d share some of my favourites ones 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.
