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…

HAWESWATER HOTEL – LAKE DISTRICT REVIEW

HAWESWATER HOTEL – LAKE DISTRICT REVIEW

Earlier this week it was my mum’s birthday, so we thought it would be nice to spend it up at my nana’s in the District all together. Fortunately for her the sun was shining and it was lovely and hot. This is when the Lake District is at its best. My nana doesnt live too far away from Haweswater, a huge reservoir that provides all the water to Manchester. The reservoir has a lot of controversial history, as where the water lies now, there used to lie the village of Mardale….

GLOBALES BINIMAR APARTMENTS – MINORCA

GLOBALES BINIMAR APARTMENTS – MINORCA

Back in May my partner and I decided to take a spontaneous last minute holiday. We decided it was a good time to go so we avoided all the holiday rush, then prices would be cheaper, we would avoid sunbed wars, and large queues. We decided to head over to Minorca, as neither of us had ever been there before, I have heard nice things, and the sea looked so beautiful, with the weather slightly better than the UK we were happy. We decided to go with First Choice and went…

CLUB JULIAN – MARMARIS – TURKEY

CLUB JULIAN – MARMARIS – TURKEY

If your looking for a good holiday then CLub Julian is not the place to go. Not so long ago, my partner and I ventured to Turkey with First Choice on a 4* all inclusive holiday. We were excited at the prospect of staying in a 4*, as we usually go for 3* so the added luxury was going to be a treat.  What a trick this tuned out to be. Upon arrival we were greeted by a lovely smiley girl who sorted our room key etc, and after a long…
