Summer Reads 2016

When the holiday countdown begins, the search begins for books to read while spending lazy days lounging by the pool or in the garden soaking up the sun. It can be tempting to dust off the books from last year and pull them out for their annual showing, because I…

Tenerife | Sun, Sea And Total Relaxation

The last time I ventured overseas for a week of relaxation was September 2014. While I’ve worked hard and been lucky to have a couple of breaks overseas since, it’s been far too long since I spent the day doing nothing by the pool. And I really enjoy lazying by…

Postcard from…Thassos

I love checking my postbox and finding gems like this in there! Emily, from That Emily, just came back from a week on the sunny island of Thassos in Greece. Knowing about my love of postcards, she sent this classic beach holiday number to me, scoring high on the brownie…

8 days and counting!

This week has been such a muddle and such a drag that I cannot wait to be flying off to Palma next week. In fact, in 8 days I will hopefully be there (Spanish air controllers permitting…) with a cocktail in one hand and some of my favourite Spanish food…

Montparnasse Tower, Paris

From a distance, Montparnasse Tower looks just like an ordinary office block. But the real gem lies at the top of the building, where you’ll find a large, open-air viewing platform. The obvious choice for panoramic views of Paris is the Eiffel Tower. However, we were staying just a couple…

Mediterranean Palace, Tenerife

So I’ve just returned from a lovely week long holiday to the sunny island of Tenerife. While I have been to the area of Playa de las Americas a few times, I’ve never  stayed at Mediterranean Palace. However, my boyfriend and I have often walked past it en route to other…

Tenerife!

The wanderers return! We were quite late booking our holiday this year, as it’s been quite a hectic summer. My brother just got married, so we’ve had hen dos, stag dos, dress fittings, nail appointments, hair appointments and goodness knows what else in preparation for the big event! We’ve had…
