So as you may or may not know, one of the things I’ve really wanted to do since moving back to London was to go for a curry down Brick Lane (or curry mile as it’s sometimes called). And last weekend all of my curry-related dreams came true, as I hopped on the tube to Liverpool Street after work and went for a Friday night curry with the bf at…

As the February wind and rain batters my bedroom window, I find myself more and more thinking back to last summer when Dom and I travelled Croatia for three weeks (probs the best three weeks of my life). One of the places we visited was arguably Croatia’s most luxurious and sought-after island – Hvar. Known as the Queen of the Dalmatian Islands, Hvar boasts white beaches, clear blue waters, perfect…

SEO – you probably hear it so much but are you really aware of a) how important it is, and b) what to do to create SEO-friendly content? To put it plainly, SEO or…

Admit it. Since you started blogging you’ve defo thought about how great it would be to be a full-time blogger right? Me too – tbh I can’t think of anything better to call ‘work’ than writing about my life from the comfort of my own home. Surrounded by snacks and blankets too, obvs. Anyway, back to reality. Keeping up a blog alongside a full-time job can be time-consuming and sometimes…

As you may or may not know from reading my post about 12 things to do in London, one of the places I wanted to visit was a little church garden between Tower Hill and Monument called St Dunstan-in-the-East. After the church was bombed during the Blitz in 1941 (didn’t realise this was gonna be a history lesson did ya?), all that’s left is the tower and steeple – the…

2017 is in full swing already, and while I’ve already written about my general life goals for 2017, I thought it would also be interesting to come up with a blogging plan for the year. Y’know seeing as I’m trying to take blogging a lil serious now, it can’t hurt to give myself a little guidance right? That way, I can track how well I’m doing, see what’s working and…

It’s 2017! And, it’s that time of year again where everyone and their dog makes the same new years’ resolutions (drink less, eat healthier, join the gym – you know the ones) that get forgotten about and then brushed under the carpet as if they never existed. I’m not really big on new years’ resolutions, but think it’s always good to keep a mental (or literal, in this case) note…

Disclaimer: I wrote this when I was hungry. If you know me, you’ll know I loooooooooove to eat. My favourite thing about Christmas is the food, hands down, and I just love a substantial meal. Christmas is the time for sooo much good food – roast dinners, desserts, Boxing Day buffets, chocolates and treats. I literally cannot wait (I sound so fat lololol). But, with anything, with the good also…
