My Top 5 | Hand Luggage Essentials

We're all going on a Summer (September) holiiidaay...

Excitement doesn't even begin to cover it.

I haven't been home since April and haven't had a proper sit-by-the-pool-and-do-bugger-all holiday since June last year. 

So I'm very very much looking forward to the next 11 days!

Holiday Autos is currently running a bloggers competition to submit the best tricks, tips and advice for travellers.

I was a bit late hearing about it (deadline is 1pm today!) and I'm not really counting my chances (so go vote for my lovely friend Erica's entry instead please!), but I thought I'd join in the fun anyway.

Now, when I'm going on holiday, I always make about fifty different lists along the way. It's the only way I can stay organised and not forget anything!

At the moment I have 5 on the go: To Do Today, To Do Tomorrow (before I leave), Clothes to Pack, Electronics + Bits and Pieces to Pack, and Hand Luggage To Pack.

Take a look at the title at the top.

Which list do you think I'm sharing with you today?

My Top 5 | Feeling Feminine

Life has been a crazy bowl of craziness the last few weeks.

I've been here, there and everywhere, at work all day and out doing things and meeting people every night and seeing Gary and friends on weekends.

It's been so much fun and I'm absolutely loving life at the moment, but actually, I'm what I like to call a Confident Introvert: I like people, but I re-charge my energy by being alone.

Now, I'm not particularly glamorous. A night in at home, with the flat to myself, a glass of wine and a good film is plenty a re-charge for me.

But I do also love to feel relaxed and pampered. And I feel like I've been neglecting that side of me lately.

So when I was asked to take part in the #BewareofAngels programme in celebration of the Angel fragrance by Thierry Mugler, I felt it was a great time to sit back and reflect on what I like to do to relax, recharge and feel feminine again...

My LFW Experience with Olympus

Remember a couple of months ago, when I did that street photography class in London?

It was with Olympus and I got to try out one of their cameras and learn some really helpful tips and tricks from pro photographer Cleveland Aaron.

So, a few of weeks ago, Cleve messaged me on Twitter about "something" happening during London Fashion Week with Olympus. He didn't know any details but he thought I might be interested and did I want to go along?

I said yes. (Obviously)

Thoughts on Being a Woman


My birthday is in less than 3 weeks time.

I'll be 23, which sounds incredibly grown up doesn't it?

I feel like 22 is still pretty much 21, which is still pretty much 18.

But 23? Oh boy.

The difference in just one year is huge. When I think of how much my life has changed, how many things I've achieved, how much I've learnt and how many ideas have been turned upside down in my mind... it feels like an absolute eternity.

And, lately, it's been making me very introspective.

(Take that as a warning: wordy post ahead!)

I've been questioning a lot about my life. Am I doing what I want to do? Am I on the right path to fulfilling my dreams? Am I spending my time wisely? (Yeah, that one is a big fat NO. #Twitter)

And most importantly: am I becoming the woman I want to be?

London | Forbidden Broadway + HintHunt

London is such an awesome city isn't it?

There's always so many interesting things to do, places to see and people to meet.

It's one of the most varied, versatile and multi-cultural cities in the world.

We have beautiful old buildings, fab new architecture, old paintings, new paintings, great food, great beer/ale/gin, green parks, river boats, music of all kinds, theatre of all genres, great history, legendary literature, huge shops and so many secret pockets of just pure fun.

Recently I spoke about the lovely walking tours I've been on with Best LDN Walks (this one and this one!). I learnt a lot about London history and got some really great pics of our lovely city.

It really introduced me to some of the lesser known parts of London, and I kind of want to do the same with you guys.

So today I'm gonna show you two fun and different ideas of things to do and see in London!
