“Paris is always a good idea” – Audrey Hepburn

Apologies for the lack of posts- I’ve been undergoing some changes in my life (including changing job and moving house!) This has meant I’ve had little time for blogging or collating ideas for my little online space! Not to worry- I’m back to write another post on my most recent trip to Paris! I visited Paris on…

Honeymoonin’

As you can see from my previous post I’ve been planning a wedding for myself! I should have probably disclosed that this wedding will not be until July 2016- giving me a full year to get all plans into action. I think planning ahead for big things can be the best way to make the…

Planning for the next big thing…. Malcesine Wedding

So I haven’t posted for a long time, I’ve been a pretty busy gal. Working and recently bought a house! Funnily enough on top of this I’ve been planning a wedding! (although there is little I can do this far in advance)! My blog readers will know how much I love Italy, my boss knows,…

“I think Miami is a beautiful, sexy, gorgeous place”- Minka Kelly

Why Miami?: After a week of patrolling the Disney/Universal parks in Orlando, Miami was a total breeze. From the first day of arriving there, things already felt much more chilled. The weather was sunny with a gentle wind that just cooled you off when things got a little too much (and this was December/January!!) We’d…

La Dolce Vita!- Italy

As I’ve had quite a few people pop into the shop recently asking me about Italy, and how my love for this magnificent place started I thought I’d do a post on this. I first visited Rome when I was 16, and I immediately fell in love. If Jet2 had gone bust there and then…

Portofino!

Using the very helpful notes provided by my family I am aiming to do a post on Portofino today. Portofino is located in Italy, in the province of Genoa on the Italian Riviera. The place itself is a small fishing town, but now a main holiday spot for celebrity visitors. If you just take a…

Toronto (Part 2) Shops, Sights and Sports

To round off my posting on Toronto I decided to cover a ‘part 2’ of the trip in order to fit in all of the activities carried out.  Shops: Now I thought New York was the place for shopping… but Toronto is. On every street there are fashion crazed people or huge department stores to explore….

‘Toronto’s a delightful city’ – Nellie McKay

Travelling to Toronto: I thought I’d add a little on my general journeying to Toronto as you can imagine it was a long way travelling from Yorkshire. So getting to the airport took 2 hours (thank you Joe for the lift), then there was the 2 hours to pass (see previous post for tips), then…

Come Fly With Me (Some Musings on Flying)

Wherever you’re going, most likely you’re going to use an airport to get there. At some point in our modern lives, most people will encounter airports. I wouldn’t say they’re the most pleasant place in the world, but hey it means you’re going somewhere and that’s generally exciting! So here’s a few tips to make…

Pompeii

To one of the most interesting places in the world: Pompeii. Of course places as special as this come at a cost in today’s world. The entrance fee is 11 euros for adults and 5.50 for children/concessions. It’s opening hours change throughout the year from November 1st– March 31st it is 8:30am-5pm, and during Summer April 1st–…

Some Musings of Travelling…

For a bit of a change I’ve decided to note a few thoughts on travelling tips I’ve acquired over the years. General things I’ve observed, or been shocked by or rules I felt could have helped me along my journeying. So, without further ado… here is a list of observations and tips: Weather: From experience,…

‘Vienna is the center of the Modern World’

Whilst a student at University, I attended a public talk by Dr Sabine Wieber (a lecturer in History of Art at Glasgow University) who had been working on the National Gallery’s exhibition ‘Facing the Modern: The Portrait in Vienna 1900’. This really reshaped what many people in my class knew of as Vienna, it is…
