Afternoon Tea at the Ritz with Pandora

Last month I received an invitation to attend an afternoon tea at The Ritz. The afternoon tea itself was organised by Pandora in celebration of their new spring collection and the launch of their new style friendship bracelet. I’d never been to the Ritz before and

Getting Active

One of my new year’s resolutions is to do at least three sporting activities a week. For some, this might seem like a small amount, but for a person like me who would rather curl up with a good book or tv series (especially during the winter!) it’s an achievable goal, which so far I’ve managed to stick to.

I’ve had to work quite hard to incorporate fitness into my weekly routine, especially as I’m out walking the dogs for 40 minutes twice a day too. I have however noticed as I’ve got older that I can’t eat what I want and watch all of those series on Netflix without feeling pretty sluggish and unenergised. I noticed that as soon as I started getting active again my energy levels were so much better, which at the same time had a positive effect on my mental health too. There’s something about being outside or getting out and taking part in a class with other people that I really enjoy.

Ever taken yourself out on a date?

Last week I did something I’ve never done before; I took myself out to lunch. This might not sound like a big thing, but as I sat in Wagamama’s ordering my usual ramen (instead of picking up a takeaway) I realised I’d never sat alone in a restaurant before.

I started to question why I’d created such a

Home Comforts

Over the past two years I’ve visited the airport more times than I’d like to count. I’m always filled with that new trip anticipation, but there’s always an element of the unknown, even if you’ve planned the adventure to the very last detail. Landing back on home ground is a whole different story; as soon as my feet walk off that airplane I’m comforted by the unpredictable grey weather that greets me and the promise of a great cup of tea. This post is in collaboration with Heathrow Airport; they are celebrating what Britishness means to you and conducted an anthropological study on what ‘Modern Britain’ means in 2018. We live in such a diverse multicultural country, and Heathrow Airport is a microcosm of people from different cultures and backgrounds which all add to that contemporary sense of Britishness.

What 2017 taught me

Happy New Year everyone!

This post has taken me a while to write; it started up as a round-up of 2017, but after realising that I’d shared most of the good bits with you guys already, I thought I’d go for a different angle for the first post of the year! I learnt a great deal about myself in 2017, it was my first full year of being self-employed and through a lot of trial and error; I feel like I’ve started to figure out where I want to be in 2018.

Things I’ve learnt-

Work Life Essentials- What’s in my bag?

My first year of self employment has taught me so many lessons, and it always amazes me that I could be working from a coffee shop in London one week and then from an air bnb in LA the next. Travelling in any form whether for work or for a holiday used to fill me with a sense of anxiety, but this fast paced unpredictable profession has taught me the art of being flexible, open minded, but most of all, to be prepared for anything that comes along.

One of the ways I’ve helped reduce any anxious feelings is to compartmentalise all the items that enable me to do my job into one place. This preparedness then enables me to capture the content I want to create wherever I am in the world.

Instagram – We Need to Talk

Instagram used to be one of my favourite apps. I was constantly inspired by my feed and, by all of the amazing content that appeared from the people I followed.

Recently I feel Instagram has changed and I’ve noticed my feed is inundated by more unattainable images of amazing travels, bodies, backdrops and gone are the days of sharing your morning coffee.

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.
