The Instagrammer’s Guide To Miami

With it’s art deco architecture, Cuban and Mexican fusion cuisine and platinum white sandy beaches, on paper Miami sounds like an Instagrammer’s dream. But I’ll be totally honest here, I wasn’t expecting to love it quite as much as I actually did. It’s telling of how much you’ve enjoyed a trip when the moment you return and flip open your macbook, your first Google search is to check how much return flights are. Em and I made the decision to visit fairly spur of the moment. We knew we wanted a girly break with plenty of sunshine – but equally, somewhere beautiful…

How To Plan Your Thailand Itinerary

Thailand conjures up images of baby elephants, pad thai, crazy Bangkok streets, beautiful beaches and the (in)famous full moon parties. It’s both a relaxing haven for romance and a party pod for graduates. I guess when I visited this time last year, I slotted rather nicely into both categories. David and I wanted a gorgeous relaxing break – our first official holiday as a couple, and yet I also wanted to visit somewhere with lively culture where I could celebrate the end of my University career, no more dissertation, exams or living 100’s of miles away from home. Yipee! And…

Why You Need A Luxury Weekend In Qatar

I’ll be totally honest here, up until about two years ago, Qatar never featured on my radar. The first I heard of it was a small mention from my boyfriend David in the midst of an anecdote about his trip to Thailand. “We stopped off at Doha airport in Qatar airport for a few hours, it was the glitziest, snazziest airport I’ve ever seen.” Apart from that, I knew nothing. And naively, I just saw it as one of those places you pass through on the way to another destination. Sure, I wanted to experience the Arab regions one day,…

Why I Celebrated My Birthday At Disney This Year!

Having a birthday in January invariably means that by the time your big day swings around, everyone is too tired, hungover, poor and stuffed with food, that they don’t really want to celebrate. A generalisation I suppose, but usually true. This year, I was fed up with not really celebrating (or people dropping out last minute), that I took matters into my own hands and booked a rather spontaneous birthday trip to Disneyland Paris! Having been to Disney a couple of times before – the Paris version when I was 8 and 13 and the Florida version when I was…

Why you need a digital detox in Mexico

As much as I adore the digital world and the incredible opportunities it brings, admittedly sometimes, it can be a little all consuming. I awake with my phone already in my clasped palm, scrolling through Instagram as I blink open my eyes and checking for Twitter updates as I spoon my breakfast into my mouth, rather mindlessly. And I’d hate to admit, when the likes start rolling in after a particularly witty* tweet (*well, sort of) there is some sort of strange addictive gratification that is somewhat engrained in all of our lives. Social media is amazing though. It has…
