Why it’s OK to settle down young.

Is there a stigma around ‘Settling Down’? So I want to start this one by saying I’ve never been on tinder. I’ve never accepted a drink from that guy at the bar – and I’ve never snogged a random. I’ve never flirted with work colleagues and most definitely never woken up next to a guy I barely know. To some, this is totally boring. I have plenty of friends whose […]

How I saved enough money to travel the world.

It’s no secret I used to be the worst with money. I would fritter money away like it was nothing, then still 3 weeks away from pay day I would living off my last £15 and running on the last drags of petrol. When Adam and I decided we were going to go travelling, I had to seriously make-over the way I was spending my money. This started with biting […]

Bodega – Birmingham.

Last week on a whim we decided to visit Bodega whilst having a night away in Birmingham. I was slightly taken a back when the waiter looked concerned we hadn’t booked. It was mid-afternoon on a Monday and there was only 3 other tables taken in the whole restaurant. However, we were shown to our table and I must say I was impressed by the extensive menu. The place is […]

4 Months Veggie.

So turning vegetarian is something I’ve been considering for months, if not years. But 4 months ago I finally took the plunge and decided it was time to stick a label on it, so I announced I had gone vegetarian. Now, I wasn’t a massive meat eater anyway so cutting meat out of my diet has not been difficult at all. However anyone thinking of making the transition please be […]

19 Thoughts we all have when hungover.

Why on earth is my mouth so dry? I feel I’ve eaten sand, I need water… water! How the hell did I manage to fall asleep with my clothes on? Wait, where are my keys? Phew, found them. Purse, keys, phone, check. How many drinks did I have? *starts replaying every drink over in your head and it all starts to make sense* SNAPCHAT STORY. Right, breakfast time. No chance, […]

The Oriental Express – Sheffield

So this weekend we celebrated the Chinese new year with a feast at the Oriental Express Sheffield. The Oriental Express is situated right in the heart of Sheffield on Glossop Road and is the perfect people-watching spot if you’re lucky enough to grab a table in the window as we were. The restaurant is weird and wonderfully decorated and the staff were all really friendly. There is a really extensive […]

Booking a one way ticket.

So we’ve taken the decision, booked the one way flight out to China! I literally could not be more excited… I have always been a middle of the road kind of person, you know – never rich, never poor. Never popular, never alone. I went straight to college from school and then straight to work from college. I’ve never been a career driven girl. I still don’t know what I […]

14 Things I’m grateful for.

So 2016 was the year the UK voted to leave the EU and Donald Trump became the president of America. It was up and down to say the least. If nothing else, I’ve realised that I am so guilty of moaning about such pointless things. I’ve decided that my goal for 2017 is make the most of every moment and take a step back to realise how lucky I am. […]

My battle with My Fitness Pal.

I want to start by saying that this is not a slating of ‘My Fitness Pal’. I wanted to write this post around an obsession a lot of people have in today’s society around calorie counting – it just so happened that My Fitness Pal was my weapon of choice. So, back in 2015 after a fab trip to New York it hit me that I needed to lose weight. […]
