New Year, new you – are you falling for that cliché too?

And I’m back! Happy New Year to all and whoever may be reading this. It’s a New Year and a New Me! Haha…I can almost hear you nearly choke on your tea! Such a cliché right! Yes, it’s a new year, but not so dissimilar to the previous year (minus the fact that it’s 2017 not 2016) and well, as much as I would have like to have morphed into

H2Only are you up for the fundraising challenge?

This summer has seen many families and friends make the most of the glorious sunshine by some of the UK’s well-loved beaches and seaside towns. Whilst the sea water is so temping to jump into on a really hot day, there is a darker side of the sea that we seem to forget. It’s something that can result in some horrible tragedies like we have seen this year along our

Travelling with my Eastpack!

Rucksacks are finally cool again yay! Being a woman who always feels the need to carry everything (with exception to the kitchen sink) in her handbag the resurrection of the rucksack came with a cheer! Purely down to the even distribution of weight being carried around and hey a rucksack has more room than a clutch bag to carry ALL those essential items! In today’s post I wanted to discuss

Festival Wellies by Aigle you won’t want to take off!

It’s the famous Glastonbury weekend and after watching Adele on tv last night yeah, I’m feeling a bit of FOMO! Music, friends, and nothing to worry about apart from who to go with and what to watch next sounds like an inviting option…oh, and the mud! Yes, you read right – mud! So, in order to correct this mud-less low, I decided to go and take the dog for a

Win a Trip to Sri Lanka and Discover your Inner Compass!

What’s your travel inspiration? That’s the first question that I got asked when Black Tomato teamed up with Anthropologie to home in on what myself and other travel junkies use for inspiration when using their inner compass to decide on their next destination of choice. People travel for so many different reasons in both business and pleasure. For me, travelling is a way to experience new cultures, take in beautiful

Frustrated with the Tubestrike? Treat yourself to £10 off an Urban Massage!

Good morning commuters! Welcome to what is yet another tube strike! I am in total support of the TFL Staff’s fair work life balance. However, the thought of a joyous additional hour or so added onto my detour around London is something I dread! So in an attempt to justify having to wait at a bus stop and potentially get on four or more crammed buses (and got forbid launch

UV Indicator Wristband by Smartsun UK

It’s mid June and it’s been raining! All hail the Great British Summer! Now whilst the summer sales have already started, I live in hope that my toes will get to walk about in flipflops with bright coral nail polish. That and Mr J showing his manly skills on the bbq grill that is cleaned and ready to be used.  So with this new found hope, and for all the lucky people

Stylist Live

      It’s not often (actually quite possibly rare) that I recommend something to you all before it has even happened.  However, this was one thing that I had to shout out about! If you don’t happen to live in a cave, are female (men you can attend as well) and can get your hands on a free copy of the Stylist magazine weekly then you will know that

Beach Reads

Going on a holiday is the perfect time to lose yourself in a good book. So that was just what I and my best friend did (in between glasses of Prosecco and daily naps).  Whilst I managed to finish The Girl with All the Gifts, my best friend only managed to get to chapter four – so Jess, hurry up! However in her defense, I did arrive armed with every magazine
