THE CITY WAREHOUSE APARTHOTEL – MANCHESTER – REVIEW

THE CITY WAREHOUSE APARTHOTEL – MANCHESTER – REVIEW

Looking back a couple of weeks ago, I was lucky enough to be invited to the amazing launch of The Grand Pacific restaurant on Spring Gardens which you can read about here. With travelling further up North the day, it only made sense to stay over in the city. Generally when staying in Manchester I have even gone to friends or family, or to a hotel. When about to book our normal hotel, I noticed the opportunity for the City Warehouse Aparthotel pop up. Well of course why not. You get a…

TOP 5 NEW HOTELS OPENING 2017

TOP 5 NEW HOTELS OPENING 2017

We have become a generation of travellers, with an insane amount of opportunity to travel. Gap years, bloggers, jobs where you jet off all over the world. We crave to explore, to adventure and discover. However I have slowly come to realise that there is so much to discover on your own front door. We yearn to get away, fly to the tropics, surf the warm seas. Yet forget the simple pleasures that our country offers. So here I have found some astounding hotels opening inspired and set in the…

GOODWOOD RACES LADIES DAY

GOODWOOD RACES LADIES DAY

Last year my partner won the most incredible prize. A trip to Goodwood races on ladies day. I have never been a big goer on horse racing. Apart from on my Birthday, we always make a cheeky bet on The Grand National, in memory of my grandad. Therefore the opportunity to head to one of these prestigious events, was pretty much once in a lifetime. A once in a lifetime event it most certainly was. Everything was covered and paid for by Dove all down to a tee. We got…

CLUB HOTEL RIU TIKIDA PALMERAIE – MOROCCO – REVIEW

CLUB HOTEL RIU TIKIDA PALMERAIE – MOROCCO – REVIEW

If you have not already guessed, I have become a huge fan of last minute holidays. As I am currently at home most of the time, I take full advantage of last minute deals. Not only does this avoid hiked up prices for popular holiday duration’s. It also means that resorts are relatively calm and quiet. As well as adding huge excitement not knowing where we are going and at what times. It adds a air if spontaneity. We were looking for somewhere hot and exotic, and yes all inclusive….

YORKSHIRE SCULPTURE PARK – REVIEW

YORKSHIRE SCULPTURE PARK – REVIEW

For years now my mum has been insisting that I go and check out Yorkshire Sculpture Park. I also had a friend that used to work there also who non stopped raved about it! Yet you know me stubborn and all that – I did not listen. Oh boy was I wrong to leave it so late. Mum – You were right I am sorry (savour those words) My visit was not totally spontaneous, as I had noticed a DREAM job opportunity to arise. I mean these rarely come around….

MY EUROPEAN TRAVEL WISHLIST

MY EUROPEAN TRAVEL WISHLIST

At times I would consider myself as a well travelled person. As a child I lived in Africa, and we saw so many incredible places there. Being part French most of my summer holidays were spent in France and its fair to say, I have made my way a fair bit around there too. Not only that but I have worked abroad over in Iceland and Croatia, which was an incredible experience. On top of that I have also been to Italy, Spain and travelled around Morocco. So I do…

THE ALFRED HOTEL – AMSTERDAM – REVIEW

THE ALFRED HOTEL – AMSTERDAM – REVIEW

Just before Christmas my partner and I decided we needed a relaxing city break. Having never been to Amsterdam before we thought that could be the one. I have heard great things from my brother, and there is lots of great things to do and see. Plus this was around Christmas time so it couldn’t really get much festive. All the lights are up, the canals are glittering, and its a great environment for hot chocolate. Cold Wintry walks wrapped up, along the many canals, sounded pretty chilled to us. So…

5 MOROCCAN FOODS YOU MUST TRY

5 MOROCCAN FOODS YOU MUST TRY

If you follow me on Instagram, you will be well aware by now that I have just been in Morocco. This happened not to be my first visit, as my mother and I went backpacking for three weeks around 7 years ago. Therefore this trip was very relaxing and calm. Whereas 7 years ago it was all about living like the locals and soaking in the culture. To do so you have to eat some traditional Moroccan foods. I am not shy of these foods, I have very fond memories…

JANUARY FAVOURITES

JANUARY FAVOURITES

As I generally blog about food and recipes, many of you maybe thinking who is the person behind all of this. Unlike a lot of lifestyle bloggers, I do not tend to get quiet as personal with life stories and woes. However I saw this piece done by a fellow blogger and I thought it was a lovely idea and makes a great monthly feature. I cant for the life of me remember her name, so anyone know holla me so I can shout her out! Anyways so yes this…

HOW I GOT A FREE HOLIDAY

HOW I GOT A FREE HOLIDAY

Last year my partner and I decided to embark on a last minute holiday to Turkey. Whilst Turkey itself was a beautiful country and we had an incredible time. There were however there were certain issues that arose that I was very unhappy with! If you want to ave a little read of what we went through you can read here. Apart from the fire at the hotel our stay was rather pleasant. I obviously spoke too soon as getting back to our little home was a nightmare. If you…
