What a blast this trip was! Admittedly, Danny and I were a bit apprehensive about travelling to Greece, we’d read so many amazing reviews and seen so many amazing photographs, but it wasn’t right up there on the list of places for us to travel. In the end we were both pleasantly surprised and at some points even blown away by the breath-taking views discovered, adventures explored and the humble, colourful culture Greece cultivates.

We stayed in a beautiful little hotel in Tsilivi, not the most luxurious and expensive place to stay, but that’s not what we were looking for; We were seeking a location that was best for travel, and that’s exactly what Tsilivi provided! From Zakynthos, to Kefalonia, to Navagio, we had our route all mapped and planned out for our little adventure riding through the hillsides and city streets on the back of our scooter ped.

Our days consisted of sunkissed afternoons turtle spotting in Kefalonia, sailing over to shipwrecked islands with pure white sand in Navagio, jumping off the side of boats into the crystal clear ocean, experimenting with new flavours and foods at traditional Greek restaurants, stopping and taking in picturesque views whilst cruising on our motorped, discovering clay baths amongst the stones and rocks of secluded beaches, rowing boats through and under ancient and magical caves, and most importantly, creating those special moments together that will last a life time. Because what is travel without the memories and life experience you will forever carry afterwards?

As the saying goes; “Though we travel the world to find the beautiful, we must carry it with us or we find it not.” – Ralph Waldo Emerson

Spring Inspiration

“Spring is nature’s way of saying, Let’s party!” – Robin Williams. 

My most loved season is soon approaching and I’m feeling really inspired to put together some thoughts and ideas! Saying this, my vision so far being a touch of boho chic with a vibe of sun-kissed afternoons under cherry blossoms, sipping on homemade margaritas sounds like a plan already! Here’s just some of the photos I discovered to bring that vision to life.

There’s no place quite like London at Christmas, for the magical & festive spirit that’s in the air & the twinkling pretty lights that fill the city with colour, here are just some of my favourite photos over the past couple of weeks that I captured in moment!

In other news, I haven’t really had much time to blog over the past couple of weeks, what with it being Christmas & all I’ve been super busy! But thought I would sit down with a glass of mulled wine, cosy on up under my favourite blanket & do a little posting! Next up will be the last of my present wrapping & then try & get an early night! (The life of an insomniac for you).

One week left to go, Merry Christmas! xoxox

DIY Pumpkin Creations.

hhHad so much fun with this! I decided this year rather than doing the typical carve your pumpkin decoration, to think a bit more “out of the box”, pull my sleeves up, & get my hands messy (or very glittery for this matter!) Happy Halloween xoxox

All pumpkins were bought from your standard local supermarket, including the little baby one which I just love & couldn’t quite bare to leave behind, so cute! & on the walk home after venturing out in the cold for a shop, I decided to pick out some pretty Autumn leaves that I could use for any decorating purposes, turns out they came in handy after all! I also digged out my paints & brushes that I keep in one too many boxes of arts&crafts (yes you read that right, I think I may have a problem!)

Music up, creative mode on, & I’m well in my element of carving, painting & glittering up these pretty little creations. Quite proud of the final outcome actually, & it was all surprisingly easy! Everyone loved them & I couldn’t have had a lovelier Halloweekend spent with family.

Looking forward to next years now! My mind is overflowing with ideas already..

Valentines in Paris ♡

I say, to live for the spontaneous moments in your life, is a life well spent.

Firstly, I would just like to say thankyou to the most amazing boyfriend in the world for planning & following through with what started off as a mere “Oh yeah but that’s far too unrealistic!” idea ..Apparently not!

Travelling by coach & ferry for excruciatingly long hours, (this was the consequence we had to pay for a cheap, last minute trip) in Antarctic-like conditions & running on barely any energy, I’ll admit, was hands down, without a doubt, all completely worth it. Let’s just say this is going to be one tough Valentines Day to follow in up & coming years!

On a rainy arrival we found ourselves in the heart of the beautifully characteristic & stylish streets of Paris. Not really sure on where we were going, or any set plans in particular, this was the perfect opportunity for some exploring (& maybe getting lost!).

We decided to take a long walk passing all of the city’s picturesque cafés, florists & window shopping some of Paris’ finest fashion stores, Channel being one of them! C’est très magnifique! After my Audrey Hepburn moment, we reached one of the most extravagent & poshest hotels I’d ever laid eyes on, & Daniel is just about to step in for directions! Lord have mercy! Entering in awe from the sparkling marble floor under our feet & the tall white pillars towering over our heads, we met a very cheery & helpful woman at the front desk who literally planned our whole route out for the day on a map with a biro ballpoint pen.

The route took us through all of Paris’ main attractions & places you couldn’t bare to miss when visiting The City of Love; The Champs-Élysées, The Arc de Triomphe, The Louvre Pyramid, The Eiffel Tower, the list goes on. All of which were breath-taking experiences that I will hold close to my heart for a very long time. The Eiffel Tower even had a special surprise especially for Valentines Day where the whole building lit up towards the end of the night & softly sparkled for only a few seconds. A truly magical moment. It really was like the icing on top of the cake, what a perfect ending to finish a perfect Valentines Day!
