13 Things to Do in Valencia

So you might have seen from my many gratuitous Instagrams that I spent a long weekend on the continent last week, in the sunny city of Valencia. We packed quite a lot into four days and I fell a bit in love with the place, so I thought I’d share my top tips and recommendations […]

Wilderness Festival 2015

It feels like every blog post I write these days starts with “It’s been a while since my latest update!”, for which I can only apologise for how annoying that might sound. But whatever, it’s true! Life has been something of a whirlwind recently – SHORT RECAP OF LIFE UPDATES: I moved house, had a […]

Malaysia pt 3: Langkawi

My Malaysian adventure has come to an end. Sad face. But hey, the Christmas countdown starts now! Though I hear I’ve missed the first screening of ‘Love Actually’ this season. Double sad face! For the final leg of our trip we spent six days in gorgeous Langkawi, an island comprising of 99 separate islands, most […]

A trip to Nice

A birthday in Paris

I celebrated my quarter-century birthday this week and as a treat to ourselves, my boyfriend Mike and I booked a little two day adventure to Paris! (It was his birthday too so double celebration YAY). We last visited Paris for New Years Eve 2012/2013 with his brother and sister-in-law, which was a pretty magical time […]

A weekend in Oxford.

Back in my interning days many moons ago I spent 3 months in Oxford working for a teeny publishing company. I’ve not been back since despite it being so close to London (under an hour on the train and not much £ either). But this weekend the whole Tewkesbury clan was there to celebrate a […]
