Motivational Monday – Let’s Get Cosy

Let's get Cosy

Motivational Monday – one word to inspire your month. Here in the UK the clocks have gone back which means it will be getting darker earlier. It’s the perfect excuse to start getting COSY. I’ve already spent last month preparing for the change in the calendar. There are two things that I love about this time […]

Exploring Florence on Foot

Ponte Vecchio, Florence, Italy

We were so excited to start our holiday with a day exploring Florence on foot. My friend Pip had wanted to visit for sometime, and although I hadn’t researched what to expect, I knew being in Italy that it would be full of grace and charm. We’d booked a full day tour to immerse ourselves […]

Feeling Comfortable in Your Own Skin

Until recently I’d never really understood the saying – feeling comfortable in your own skin – but a comment made to me recently about the confidence I was projecting, got me thinking about how I’m currently feeling.

Elegant Cruising with Cunard Queen Victoria

Queen Victoria, Cunard

I’m going to make a statement I never thought I’d make. I love cruising. Thanks to Cunard I’ve found my sea legs and discovered the joys of cruising.

There’s No Place Like Home

New York, London, Paris, Rome are all very well, but this is home

After her travels along the yellow brick road, Dorothy may well have been right in saying…..There’s No Place Like Home. I love to travel and whether it’s a weekend away, a shortbreak or weeks at a time I always like coming home. As I step through my front door there’s a sense of familiarity and […]

A Weekend in Cornwall

Padstow, Cornwall

I love having quality time with my family and during August bank holiday we all took a trip to Cornwall. It’d been a couple of years since the last time I was there when I’d re-visited many of our childhood haunts. This time though, with three precious days, it was about relaxing. St Ives The first […]

Motivational Monday – Let’s Hope

Sunset in Cornwall

Motivational Monday – one word to inspire your month. With the change of the seasons there’s a feeling of HOPE. With a newness in the air that makes it feel like anything is possible. Like a fresh beginning every three months. It is a feeling to be relished. With each season bringing it’s own unique […]
