Our Epic Turkish Fail

So here I am, NOT sitting on the beach sipping a cocktail in Turkey like I said I would be in my last post. Not wearing any of the new clothes I bought for my holiday. Not anywhere but back on my own sofa writing this and drowning my sorrows in a tub of ice cream. We packed our bags,…

Last year, it seemed like all we did was travel, which is why, save from our little trip to Milan in March, this year has seemed a little quiet so far.

Problem is, I’ve never been much of  jeans and t-shirt kinda gal. They’ve always been a bit too casual for me and it always seemed inherantly wrong to split the two up. Whenever I…

Your Uber Is Arriving Now

I’m a die-hard city girl. Always have been, always will be. And even though I just got my driver’s license last week (woohoo!), I’m still not 100% confident driving around everywhere on my own yet and am still having to take public transport to more than a few places.

My Battle With Anxiety And How I Overcame It

  In case you didn’t already know, its #MentalHealthAwarenessWeek. And right up there with women empowerment, the fight against cancer and animal welfare, mental health is a cause that is very close to my heart since I know first hand how lonely, isolated and terrified one can feel, sometimes for no apparent reason.
