6 LESSONS YOU’LL LEARN WHILST WANDERLUSTING

6 LESSONS YOU’LL LEARN WHILST WANDERLUSTING

There’s a reason why travelling has become so popular with the younger generation. Seeing the world and escaping from the perhaps mundane routines of everyday life teaches lessons unlike no other. So, as I prepare to spend my summer travelling I searched to see what lessons I may learn whilst off wanderlusting.  A surge in young, budding travellers has resulted in much cheaper travel options, and a rise in popularity of flight comparison apps means it’s easier than ever to get to your destination at a very low-cost. This is…

A NIGHT IN THE NORTHERN QUARTER *

A NIGHT IN THE NORTHERN QUARTER *

Manchester holds a truly special place in my heart. I experienced it as a young student and then as a mature adult. I have seen many shades of this vibrant city. There are many memories dotted about diners, drinking spots and dance floors. There is one part of Manchester that I could always rely on to show me the best time. The Northern Quarter. A bustling neighbourhood full of boho bars, trendy restaurants and independent record shops. However, all over this cosmopolitan city you will find buzzy restaurants, unique bars,…

MIDWEEK MUSIC VIBES WITH PEN AND PENCIL *

MIDWEEK MUSIC VIBES WITH PEN AND PENCIL *

Let’s be honest time is this sneaky little guy that slips away from us! The amount of things we’d be able to achieve if we just had a little more time on our hands! Relationships is just one thing that can suffer from our busy busy lives and we need to re-engage with how important it is to spend time with lived ones. We all have those friends and family members that no matter how long we leave it our relationships stay the same but just because they can withstand…

A QUICK GUIDE FOR TRAVELLING HAND LUGGAGE *

It’s Friday and I have just arrived in Lisbon… YEY! As always I flew with only hand luggage using my nifty little backpack.

Not only does this save you lugging heavy bags around in the heat or the rain it can also save a fortune on hold baggage costs! You may not think you can pack enough for a 2 week holiday in…

BREAKING THE SOLO BRUNCHING TABOO – 19 CAFE BAR – MANCHESTER

BREAKING THE SOLO BRUNCHING TABOO – 19 CAFE BAR – MANCHESTER

As I’ve got older there is something I’ve learnt to do more and more. That is to enjoy my company. A little bit of self-indulgence and giving myself some me time! I must admit it took a while. I remember I always used to find it odd when my dad would head to a restaurant and dine alone or go gigging solo! I’d always thought to myself – what a strange man not wanting to share those experiences with friends. However, now I get it! He adores music and seeing…

HOLY CHESUS VEGAN PIZZA IS GOOD – PUREZZA – CAMDEN *

HOLY CHESUS VEGAN PIZZA IS GOOD – PUREZZA – CAMDEN *

Veganism is thriving in popularity right now. Whether it be for ethical beliefs or dietary choices, there are more products becoming available on the market. Having family and friends that are veggies or vegan it’s great to see them having more options to choose from. Meaning they can wine and dine just as well as the rest of us. Although I admit to being meat-eater and loving it, I also am the first to admit that I think we live in a glutenous society and consume way more than necessary!…

THE AUTUMN EDIT #5 & #6

Time for another Autumn Edit and yet again life has been hella crazy and I literally haven’t stopped! This season I must learn to relax a little and stop filling my diary otherwise I’m gonna run myself down. It’s been half term, and Halloween and Bonfire night. I’ve officially started placement and ventured to Leeds and Lyon and breathe! I was supposed to see Bonobo play in Manchester but decided to listen to my body and chill for the weekend. Honestly this half term couldn’t have rolled round quick enough…

A HOT AIR BALLOON ADVENTURE

A HOT AIR BALLOON ADVENTURE

This summer I experienced something incredibly surreal! You may have watched my live Insta, and if you did you would have seen I partook in an amazing activity. Something my mum has always wanted to tick off her bucket list! Yep, that’s right at 6am we floated off in a hot air balloon! I was lucky enough last year to win a virgin experience voucher, and so I decided to get in the brownie points and gift my mum with a trip for multiple Birthdays and Christmases – dam I just figured…

WHY I FELL IN LOVE WITH LYON

WHY I FELL IN LOVE WITH LYON

Lyon is a place I have held always very close to my heart, it may be the reason it was so easy to fall in love with, and a city that every time I go back I insist I am ready to pack up and move. I may have the comfort of my family there, however, as I am not so much a homebody I don’t think this is the biggest draw to this bustling city. Yes of course it will play a part, but there is so much to…
