This post is well overdue and posts like this will always be a bit controversial. Everyone looks for different things when they’re at a theme park so by no means is this a definite list, this is just my, five favourite rides from Universal Studios Orlando. Hagrid’s Magical Creatures Motorbike Adventure This ride had only… Continue reading UNIVERSAL: TOP 5
Let’s talk books. I have a whole category on the blog related to books, I’m an avid reader, and scroll through the goodreads app far too often. For me, reading is a form of self-care, it’s ‘me’ time and I love nothing more than getting lost in a good book. I’ve recently read a few… Continue reading 20 BOOKS FOR 2020
Hello hello! If you read my last post, you’ll know I have recently read Train Happy by Tally Rye and it’s a book I feel I have to talk about it. I have never read anything like it, or really been exposed to those views before. ‘Train Happy’ is all about intuitive exercise and listening… Continue reading TRAIN HAPPY – TALLY RYE
The older I get, and the more into health and fitness I get, I’ve realised some really toxic behaviour that I feel we need to leave in the last decade. Maybe it’s the people I follow, or did… I’m getting good at unfollowing people who I find are negative, or affect me in any undesirable… Continue reading LET’S STOP DIET SHAMING
So, how did I spend my Sunday’s in November? A chilled Sunday morning of blogging, followed by dinner and vino at my friend’s. I’m not sure I can call the second Sunday in November, ‘well spent’. A few drinks too many on the Saturday saw me being very lazy on the Sunday and eating… Continue reading #SUNDAYWELLSPENT – NOVEMBER
This post is looong overdue so, apologies! Well well well… We all knew it wouldn’t be long before I started writing about books again. This was a post I had to think about for a while and luckily, my friend had a great idea, thanks Beth! I wanted to write about my top Summer reads… Continue reading BOOKS OF THE SUMMER
These past few weeks have highlighted how valuable weekends are. As a student with weekdays off, the weekends didn’t phase me much. But now, as a full time teacher, my weekends are so important. I’m trying to make a conscious effort to spend my weekends well. While duvet days are sometimes a necessity, I do… Continue reading #SUNDAYWELLSPENT – OCTOBER
Buongiorno! Ciao! I have recently returned from a trip to Rome, Italy. A city I discovered, and fell in love with, in 2016. It’s somewhere I had always wanted to visit (I mean, who didn’t after watching the Lizzie McGuire Movie?!) In 2016, I realised it was even more than I ever could have imagined.… Continue reading I LEFT MY HEART IN ROME (AGAIN)!
July of this year saw me having an incredible two weeks in Orlando, Florida with Ian. This trip had been a long time coming. I had been to Orlando twice previously, once in 2003 and once in 2007, and for our (almost) six-year relationship, I had been bugging Ian about going together. When we booked,… Continue reading A FORTNIGHT IN THE SUNSHINE STATE
If this post makes it online, it means one very important thing: I have survived my first term as a primary school teacher. That certainly calls for celebration. These past 8 weeks I have experienced so many different emotions but most importantly, I’m happy and love my job… Even if I am shattered. I’ve felt… Continue reading TERM 1 – COMPLETE.
