This week is my birthday week, woohoo! Yes, I'll be 21 tomorrow (21st Nov) and this has filled me with both excitement and existential dread. I'll be officially in my 20s... where did my childhood go? I'll have to do adult stuff in an adult world of working a 9-5, doing something I haven't decided… Continue reading Weekly Round-Up
This weekend, I hopped on the Eurostar and it whisked me off to lovely Paris for the weekend. I went to see my best friend, Laura, who's recently moved there (lucky me, I get to visit!) and I had the best time!

Last week, Dom and I visited the Netherlands – home to idyllic windmills, canals, tulip fields and cycling routes. We stayed in Utrecht, a city about a 25 minute train journey away from the capital, Amsterdam. We stayed for a week and managed to cram in lots of things during our time there. It was… Continue reading Holiday to Amsterdam!
Today is bank holiday Monday in England and, as if it truly loves us, the sun shone brightly throughout the whole day (about time!). So my family and I decided to go to some lovely gardens to make the most of it. The flowers were in full bloom – much to my grandparents’ taste –… Continue reading Bank Holiday Day Out
