Adventures in Split

26th October 2019

At the end of August, Dan and I took a trip across to the picture-perfect postcard country, Croatia. Quite simply, Croatia is beautiful and you should go, go now. I booked an apartment for the first few days near the old town in Split, a short walk from the promenade. Lined with palm trees with […]

That Friday Feeling

24th October 2019

In our house growing up a mad thing would happen on a Friday night. We’d get that Friday night feeling of two days off school, work and instead, two whole days of freedom. There’d be singing, dancing, shouting, laugher, madness really; all for that Friday feeling. So every Friday, I’m gonna give you a weekly […]

A Weekend in Brighton

22nd October 2019

In July, Rae, Lauren and I drove down to Brighton for a much-needed gals getaway by the sea. I’d never been to Brighton before, so was buzzing to finally go!  Effectively, it’s London-by-the-sea or London meets Cromer and I am so here for it.  If you love a seaside town you will love Brighton as […]

Uh, what happened to that run?

19th October 2019

Last Sunday I was stood in the pouring rain in a metal pen waiting for my first half marathon to start. I’d had a pre-race snack, a pocket full of jelly babies and a brighter poncho than my future. Five minutes passed, ten minutes passed… after almost forty minutes, my friend called me to tell […]

24 hours in Cambridge

11th October 2019

One of the very few fun things (there’s no others) about living far away from your friends is showing them around where you live. Most of my northern pals have never been to Cambridge, which means when they do visit then we go to the best bars and restaurants, obvs, but with a punt or […]

Guess who’s back?

3rd October 2019

That’s right after months of being MIA, ya girl is back. It’s been a busy few weeks so my blog fell to the bottom of my priority list and I’m only just picking it back up again. But where do I start? So much has happened in the past few weeks since moving in with […]

A Weekend in Krakow

18th July 2019

Last month one of my best friends and I went to Krakow for a long weekend, and while we were both excited to visit, we loved Krakow more than we’d expected to! With little research, a variety of clothes and expected thunderstorms, we set out with the hope of a chilled, drinking-in-the-sun gals weekend. But […]

One Year Post University

4th June 2019

It’s officially a year since I packed up my cosy student room in York, crammed it into my Mini and entered the real, adult world. I had no job, no income, and no plans bar a handful of fun things with friends and family that was only going to drain the last dregs of my […]

Where to Visit in New York

22nd May 2019

It feels like a lifetime ago now, but in August 2018 I went back to New York. I convinced the fam that NY was the next must do state of America after we did a road trip across California, Nevada and Arizona in 2017. I’d only been once before on a drama & art school […]
