The Ultimate Christmas Q&A

I read the Ultimate Christmas Q + A over on the lovely Life of Angela and thought I would give it a go. I don’t usually do these sort of posts but I enjoyed reading Angela’s so I hope you’ll enjoy reading mine and if you fancy doing it yourself, it’s not too late! What…

A Very Bangkok Christmas

Anyone who assumes just because Thai people don’t celebrate Christmas it’s not really a thing here would be massively mistaken. Bangkok seriously goes to town on Christmas, like big time. The malls are insanely decorated, it’s like fairy lights have been spewed over the city and the festive tunes are pumping all over the place….

Exploring the Whitsunday Islands

Our entire trip to Australia was planned around our time in the Whitsunday’s. It all began when we decided not to go home to the UK for Christmas, I have never not been at home for Christmas so we decided that if we weren’t there we needed to be doing something pretty special. Someone I…

B is for Brisbane

We landed with Thai Airways into Brisbane on the 21st December (2016) and had a day and a half (two nights) to explore the city. We’d heard a few horror stories about getting through Australian customs but found it quick and efficient having applied for our visas online before travelling. The customs officer was really…

In Love with Oz

We spent an amazing Christmas and New Year in Australia. It was my first time to Australia, my husband was born there but hasn’t been back since leaving when he was a year old so we deliberated hard about what and where we wanted to be. In the end, our trip was dictated by two things…firstly,…

Down under for Christmas 

Merry Christmas everyone! I write this whilst sitting overlooking the turquoise sea in the stunning Whitsundays in Australia where we are lucky enough to be spending the holidays! We’ve had a brief time in Brisbane which we loved and are up here to board a catamaran for three days tomorrow! I’m not going to blog…

MAC Duty Free

It would have been rude to pass through an international airport without picking up a few treats, right? So, I found myself at the MAC counter gazing at the extensive, ever increasing product wish list on my phone and wondering what delights to choose. As I had a Christmassy-faced look in mind (I was thinking…

The UK Round Up

Jet lag has fully kicked in despite my best efforts which is why I find myself writing this post at 4.30am on a Sunday. Oh, the joy. We have just got back from a wonderful 3 weeks with family and friends back in the UK and rather than give you a blow by blow account I…

Hello There 2016

Wow, what a wonderful few weeks we’ve had. Sorry for the lack of blogging but it has been somewhat of a whirlwind, packing then flying back to the UK just over two weeks ago straight into a flurry of Christmas activities, parties and preparation. Christmas at home in the countryside was lovely despite the rainy,…

Hello Weekend

This week has been an odd one. We had a long weekend which meant we had the day off on Monday, then we all had the day off yesterday for constitution day, throw into the mix a horrendous cold and it’s been quite strange. I spent the majority of Tuesday and Wednesday in bed or…
