This Georgian delight boasts both a generous and delicious afternoon tea in the great setting that is Soho.

A Brussels Breakaway

For my 24th (!) birthday I was treated to a long weekend in Belgium’s capital and chocolate haven of Brussels. Just a quick hop on the Eurostar was all it took to be taken to this urban feeling yet history filled city. The sun was shining as we walked through the urban backstreets from the...

The New Zealand Experience

Having just spent a just month in New Zealand, it's hard to believe how hard and fast I fell in love with this stunning country; in my opinion, a month here isn't enough. It is a place I would wholeheartedly jump at the chance to return, and do everything I did all over again and... Continue Reading →

On Fiji time.

From the streets of LA, the Yasawa islands of Fiji were our next destination. And what a destination it was ahead of us.

Finals were over and we were more than ready for a weekend trip to a city we’ve heard so many great things about. Rain unfortunately welcomed us as we searched for... Continue Reading →

How Saturday afternoons should be spent.. This weekend my sister enters her ‘mid-twenties’, so what better way for a fine art grad to celebrate than joining her closest friends and wonderful younger sister for an afternoon of cream tea delights, in a space that is both an artwork and sugar-foodie heaven. Sketch London is a... Continue Reading →

Dublin was grand

Early last year, myself and three of my colleagues from my placement ( a year in industry as part of my degree) needed a break from our 9 to 5 as hard working placement students, so took a weekend break to Dublin, Ireland. PS I love you style tumbling hills full of Gerards and greenery... Continue Reading →

Falling for Lisboa, Portugal.

Last summer, myself and two best friends - a decade we hazily realised, whilst sun-lusting at a rooftop pool, is how long we’ve put up with each others ups downs and whirlwinds - jumped onto our budget embraced flight to Lisbon, Portugal. After a tease of sun in the south of England we were most... Continue Reading →
