Fantastic Festiveness And Where To Find It

Fantastic Festiveness And Where To Find It

If there’s anywhere in the world that really knows how to do Christmas right, I’ve always felt that the Germans have got it down to a fine art – and nothing made me fall more in love with that idea than on a recent trip to Frankfurt Christmas Market, where I did nothing but bask in fantastic festive-ness.

Stay The Night: The Walpole Bay Hotel, Margate

If sipping your morning cuppa on your balcony while gazing out over the open ocean is your jam, then a stay at the Walpole Bay Hotel should be top of your list on your jollies to Margate.

3 Weekend Breaks to Take This Autumn

3 Weekend Breaks to Take This Autumn

Attention snugglebunnies – Autumn is upon us! My fave season of them all, packed with events round the bonfire, crunchy leaves underfoot, and the excuse to stay wrapped up in cosy jumpers for months as the Winter chill starts creeping in. I always love to visit new cities at this time of year, snuggled in a chunky hat and scarf and ready to explore in the super pretty Autumn light. Summer can suck it – it ain’t got nothing on pumpkin and fireworks! I’ve kicked off the season discovering a couple of new places, as well as an old fave, so here’s the highlights if you’re an Autumn Adventurer too!

A Summer Guide to Hamburg

A Summer Guide to Hamburg

I’ve kicked off a bit of a love affair with Germany lately, having been to a few festivals and soaked up the glorious weather they’ve been having (and OF COURSE the beer and sausage), so when I was invited to pack my bags and fly away to discover what Hamburg had to offer for the weekend, I jumped at the chance.

The Secret to Happy Travel

The Secret to Happy Travel

Every once in a while, it’s nice to treat yo’ self to a little bit of extra luxury when it comes to travelling – especially flying. I’m no stranger to a budget airline and will happily continue to utilise them, but sometimes when you’re headed somewhere extra special, you just want to feel that exciting princess feeling to really amp up the holiday vibe, you know what I mean?

Stay the Night: 25hours Hafencity, Hamburg

I couldn’t have asked for a dreamier stay during my first ever visit to Hamburg than at 25hours Hotel Hafencity.

It. was. glorious.

From the nautical theme to the whole room dedicated to vinyl, the place just got me, ya know?

My Travel Essentials

My Travel Essentials

It goes without saying, I love to travel. I’ve been so lucky this past year to do so much of it, flitting about here and there for city weekend breaks and extended trips overseas – but I have to say, the most daunting part of travelling for me is the packing. I always put it off until the last minute, end up throwing anything into a bag in the middle of the night before the airport run, then wonder what the hell I’m wearing when I finally get where I’m going, or can reel off a list of important things I’ve forgotten. So here are my most important travel essentials…

Stay the Night: Hox On The Locks

Spending the night aboard the dreamiest canal boat with The Hoxton hotel was a huge tick off my bucket list! All I was missing was a Captain’s hat…
