Millenial’s ( born between early 1980s and mid 1990s) are said to have the closer relationships with their parents than other groups. Information is shared, we are more open about relationships and challenges. Perhaps true but I am sure not everyone would agree. That being said, I am constantly looking at women who have a perplexed relationship with their fathers. Nowadays, to hear that someone’s parents are still together in a healthy, loving and committed relationship is rare. I think I know 4 people, in fact it is more normal to have separated or divorced parents in this day and age. And in most instances, the children then live with the mum and that is where my story begins. Continue reading “Do I Have Daddy Issues?”
Living in London is an experience, it is an amazing and vibrant city but making sure you are in the best living situation can be tricky. We all know that unless you live in a small box-sized apartment, live with your partner or are a millionaire, you are likely going to be sharing your house with others. I have had my fair share of drama in the past and there was a point where I was actually upset about living in London.
It just goes to show how important a comfortable home is and that is not just determined about how big your room is, what TV you have or what duvet keeps you warm at night (although I must say I am living my best life with my new feather duvet)! The people you live with make such a difference. Continue reading “Is Living with Good Friends Really A Good Idea?”
We might be travellers throughout the course of our lives, and might absolutely love every minute spent acting in this way. But it can sometimes be that we never completely feel ‘at home’ in our new temporary environment, no matter how much we wish to see ourselves as an ‘Earth citizen.’ This isn’t so bad. Without the feeling of exotic adventure, we likely wouldn’t head to so many distant locales to see just what is beyond the horizon. After all, we often think that the world has shrunk due to satellite mapping and the ease of travel, but the world is the same size it always was, and will always retain the capacity to surprise and astonish you. If you feel travelling has become stale and boring, you’re likely not travelling as well as you could be. Continue reading “Finding Your Voice Abroad”
The new year is here, anyone else feeling the hangover? 1st of January is always such a weird day, the streets are fairly empty, everyone is dreading work the next day after the long holiday break, and you just didn’t wake up with that New Year feeling!
The gyms will now be packed for a few weeks with the new year resolutionists. I think everyone is ready to eat more consciously and exercise after not giving a sh** for a week. I for one had a week long cheat day.
While I am not one for the “new year, new me” fad, I do like to take time to really reflect on the previous year, what I gained, what I lost and what it taught me. 2017 and 2016 were all about self love and healing, but 2018 allowed me to elevate that. Continue reading “2018 Lessons That I Will Live By in 2019”
Merry Christmas, I trust your belly’s and hearts are full and you are now planning your next family get together! With the year coming to a close I wanted to end off with a travel bucket list for 2019 for anyone looking for a little inspiration. Get in touch with me if you have any questions on the recommendations/destinations and I would be happy to answer 🙂
Ella is paradise for any nature lover who wants tranquility while exploring nature in the highlands. With long walks, waterfalls, breathless sunsets and endless tea plantations, it is hard not to fall in love with this place in the heart of Sri Lanka. The best time to travel is in April for dry weather across both coasts of Sri Lanka and if you plan it right you can travel during the easter bank holiday and first may bank holiday, taking only 9-10 days off work for almost 3 weeks of holidays! Continue reading “2019 Travel Inspiration”
If you love going on a holiday and seeing different places several times a year, your hobby might become expensive after a while. The good news is that there are plenty of ways you can fund your travels and feel safer and less guilty about your trips. If you are in the gig economy, you might already know about some of them. Still, it might be time to brainstorm and find new ways to earn extra money for things you love doing. Continue reading “How to Earn Extra Money While Travelling”
2019 is near, so near I can smell the exciting things to come. And of course, there is nothing more exciting than planning your first trip in the new year! I have finally reached my 30 country before turning 30 goal with two extra years to go, so I need a new goal.
If like me, you are dying to explore this beautiful planet, then I am sure you also find it overwhelming of where to start when everywhere is on your list! Going back to basics sometimes helps, thinking about how you want to travel. Catching a cheap eurostar train or a roadtrip are sometimes forgotten in holiday planning. In this post we are going to look at the three basic options of getting around and some facts on them.

At the time of writing, the old year is drawing to a close, and the new one is about to begin. What will it hold for you? Where will you travel? How many items on your bucket list will you get to tick off along the way? I know that doing a Safari in west or south Africa is still high on my list, and planning another trip to visit my friendly giant pals.
You know the expression ‘when in Rome..’, well our guide is going to focus on what you should be doing when you are in Italy. If you are a traveller, Italy is certainly somewhere you should experience. Thanks to the fact that there are so many wonderful things that you can see and do in the whole country, narrowing it down to Rome seems a little difficult. So, if you are taking a trip anytime soon, then keep reading our list of things that you should do when you visit Italy. Continue reading “When In Italy..”
Ex’s, we all have them. There is the crazy ex, the ex who doesn’t love you anymore, the ex who pops up every now and again or the ex that won’t let you move on. I have had my fair share of drama but I have entered a drama free realm for the past year, good vibes only!
However, it took some work to get there. After my last relationship ended, I was very much enjoying the single life and freedom. I cannot emphasise how important it is to really take time to heal after a relationship has turned sour, and healing by yourself is the true challenge. Not finding comfort in another person’s arms but to find comfort within you.
After a 4 year relationship, it was obviously not going to be a clean slate break-up. However, for my own sanity and self-respect, I ended the relationship by text.
I know, a horrible act, and quite selfish. Continue reading “Knowing When To Close That Door”
