As glamorous as it often looks on Instagram, travel isn’t solely defined by the activity of dutifully ticking desired destinations off our bucket lists.
You have your stay-cations, where you explore cities in your own home country and see more of your immediate surroundings.
And you also have your obli-cations. Those real travel experiences, centred around obliged travel – such as weddings, christenings, family get-togethers and seeing your football team’s away game.
If you’re looking for an island adventure, without having to travel long-haul, then the Croatian Island of Hvar should be next on your list of must-see destinations.
My latest trip with Jet2 marked my second time on the island – and this time, I was very excited to show my boyfriend (who’d never been before) around. For me, it’s the embodiment of a perfect getaway – because excuse the cliche, but there really is something for everyone. Ticking the ‘city break’ box, it has plenty of culture – such as a medieval hilltop fortress and the Renaissance-era Cathedral.
It has incredible cuisine and winding streets full of hidden gems, bars and shops. It offers a stunning marina, encapsulated in a crescent by the limestone buildings of the city itself.

Wellness has been the buzz-word for the past five years, with a drastic rise in individuals seeking life balance, mindfulness techniques, nutrition advice, organic foods, plant-based diets, BPA-free tableware and natural supplements.
And this shift of getting to know our bodies more is undeniably a good thing. We’re doing our own research and taking our health into our own hands. Whereas ‘wellness’ used to be something people sought after a health-scare, these days we are taking the mantra ‘prevention is the best medicine’ as literally as we possibly can.
I can’t quite believe I haven’t even properly ‘announced’ this on my blog, but we’ve MOVED HOUSE!
In mid-December, David and I bought our first home together and moved in to a very blank canvas.
If I’m totally honest, the move all happened very quickly and we managed to secure a deal on a house that was much larger than we were expecting. We capitalised on the relatively slow market in our area and put in an offer that was much lower than the asking price.
After many back and forth negotiations, we got the house – and in we moved.
Regardless of how honest, decent and trustworthy people we are, at times, it’s very easy to bend the truth slightly and slip out a little white lie.
Most of us learn through our parents, who may have told us that carrots made you see in the dark so we’d eat our vegetables, or that Father Christmas would reconsider our new bicycle if we misbehaved.
White lies are an easy way out of a potential row, someone thinking slightly less of you, causing conflict or making a situation unpleasant.
They keep the peace and as long as they’re not used too frequently, are totally harmless and innocent.
Yep, I can’t quite believe I’ve just typed that – but all my Christmasses have come at once, my dreams have come true – I’ve written a book.
A real life book with a cover, a spine and 60,000 words.
Anyone who knows me personally will know that it’s been my ultimate goal to publish a book.
In fact, it was my very love for writing that originally inspired me to start this blog.
And look at it now!
