How to embrace an unexpected adventure

24th March 2020

As you can tell from the name of this blog, I’m very aware of the unexpected paths life takes us on. Most of these unexpected twists and turns are unwelcome and present issues, as well, you didn’t see them coming. Some unexpected events, of course are good, wonderful even. Marriage, babas, doggos you know. At […]

Highlights of Boston & Cape Cod

18th March 2020

With a beautiful harbour and a vibrant city, Boston is the ideal city and sea break. Last summer I spent a few days in Boston, before we drove down to the idyllic Cape Cod. Large wooden beam houses set back from the road with a porch and a tree swing, Hyannis replicated a traditional American […]

The end of an era

24th January 2020

This week has been filled with tears, for many reasons. But today I say goodbye to my first post-uni or proper job as the Editor of Architecture Magazine at the Peterborough based publishers Media One.

Adventures in Dubrovnik

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.

It’s no secret that I love to plan, mainly for the stationary ngl and in those rare moments I actually have free time, and feel slightly bored, then I have something to look forward too. Also my friends are all super busy with real lives of their own, so I have to keep some kinda […]

January: Week 2

14th January 2018

Two weeks down, only 50 to go, where is the year going? It’s practically over already. But I have finally had a productive week, THANK GOD, as I had about 358498 things to do before I moved back to chilly-ass York today. And I’m pleasantly surprised by how many of them I’ve done. I think […]

Adventuring to: Malham Cove and Gordale Scar

9th October 2017

Yesterday, Becca and I decided to spend a pound or two, on some exercise, hold onto ya hats. We went on… one of the Outdoor Society’s walks in the Yorkshire Dales. It was dreamy. I am such an outdoors kinda gal, as nothing beats having a great walk in the countryside and going to bed […]
