WOOOHOOOO ITS DECEMBER! I can’t believe how fast this year has flown by. I have been neglecting my blog for so long so I’m sorry for that. But IM BACK and I have so much content to make your eyes bleed so don’t worry.

I’m not one of these that starts their Christmas shopping in July, in fact it sickens me to even think about it. But once the 1st December comes around I go wild with all things Christmas; films, decorations, chocolate (more than usual if you can believe that) and not forgetting the random outbursts of Christmas songs to annoy my family and friends. So this weekend I felt festive and decided to pick my mini me up and take her to Bell’s Gardening Outlet. If you’ve read my posts before, you’ll remember my Pumpkin Picking blog which was so fun. This year, Bell’s are hosting an Elves Workshop, including cuteΒ walks down Candy Cane Lane and even getting to chose your very own christmas tree to take home. Continue reading



Although Paris is thought to be a city for romantic getaways with a partner, do not let this put you off if you’re single. It really is a must see for everyone and I had so much fun visiting with the girls for a weekend. A few of us have already been before so we didn’t cover every touristy area. However still took advantage of the whole Parisian culture including croissants for breakfast, macaroons for lunch and French champagne in the evenings. (Of course). Continue reading


I love getting comments from people about my blog. They tell me how they get lost in my writing, making them feel like they want to explore and that’s why I do it. But I wanted to write something more personal this week, to help connect with my readers and hopefully help others through a difficult time or break up. And since it’s International Women’s Day, I thought it would be a good idea to talk about it.

After four manic days in New York, we headed to Boston Massachusetts to watch an NFL game. We spent the rest of our time there browsing the many shopping malls and cobbled streets. This is where I came across the cutest chocolate shop you only see in movies.Beacon Hill Chocolates stock the most amazing hand made treats from all over the world. They also offer lovely custom keepsake boxes to make the perfect gift for someone special. My favourite part was eyeing up the chocolates with a staff member and picking my favourites for them to pop into my box. It took me ages because there were so many christmassy ones to chose from!

The shop was vintage and festive looking, filled with adorable school children making up boxes for their teachers Christmas present.

Passion fruit heart, lavender truffle, marshmallow snowman, caramel mushroom & a fruity rainbow!
When they’re gift wrapped they remind me of the chocolates from Matilda where she steals them from Miss Trunchubulls house! It’s one of my favourite childhood films so that’s probably why I love this shop and the presentation so much.

We actually had to go back the next day because I needed to experience the whole rigmarole again and bag myself another box where I picked all the crazy looking ones.
I love visiting new places and finding little nooks and crannies like these that make the trip memorable. If only I had room in my suitcase to bring the whole lot back!

Thanks for reading. I have so much content to blog about from my recent travels to New York and Boston, I can’t wait to share it with you!


I’ve signed up to a beauty box subscription and so far so good! It took me a while to chose from all of them and after reading a load of blog reviews I decided to give Love Me Beauty a go which I found on Instagram.

I’ve had similar subscription boxes before such as Graze and have found that surprises are sometimes disappointing. You find yourself with the same things each month and a never ending stash of hand creams. So, Love Me Beauty stood out for me because you get to chose exactly what you want in your package.
