Manchester Christmas Markets.

UK Christmas markets are now giving our European friends a run for their money and Manchester markets are most definitely one of my favourites. We spent the afternoon there last weekend and had a fantastic day. The markets in Manchester spread across the majority of the city centre and offer everything from giant German sausages to Christmas tree trinkets. I may have indulged in one or two sweet treats, I […]

Grind Cafe – Sheffield.

Looking for a fab lunch/brunch/coffee spot in Sheffield then look no further than Grind at Kelham Island. It’s a really cosy little café and the staff are all super friendly and helpful. There’s a board up behind the till with all of the day’s menu (I believe it changes daily) and all the freshly made puds are out on the counter, just in case you needed any convincing. If you […]

Creating the perfect Instagram life.

I’ve been thinking a lot lately about how now we all have 2 lives. The one we live day to day (you know, 6am alarm, work, gym, food, Netflix, bed?) and then your online life.

Perfect hair, make-up, the crisp white bed sheets, Starbucks in hand […]

The place itself is made up of two sections, the Depot Bakery and the Depot Eatery. I loved the fact you could see your bread being freshly baked as you sat eating your breakfast. The building is light and airy with a […]

After seeing a 3 year old playing on his iPad the other day, it really inspired me to put together a list of our childhood highlights that our kids will never experience… #1. The need to create a schedule for the FAMILY PC. Yeah, you remember when the whole family had to share the PC? And yeah, the PC weighed more than most family cars. #2. Spending hours and hours […]

Hiking Mount Batur – Indonesia

If you’re heading to Bali and can manage to tear yourself away from the beaches for a while, hiking mount Batur at sunrise is most definitely one to tick off the bucket list. So when you’re on holiday, soaking up the sun and enjoying one too many cocktails and your boyfriend comes up with the corker of an idea “shall we get up at 2am and do a hike up […]

Ubud – Indonesia.

So in September we took a trip to Bali – my first ever trip to Asia and I cannot wait to return. I completely and utterly fell in love with our first stop, right in the rainforest – Ubud. We stayed at the Pertiwi resort right on the Monkey Forest Street. When we arrived there was a mix up with our room and were greeted with the fact the hotel […]
