6 Things I Love About Summer

Us Brits, we notoriously love talking about the weather so much and seem to spend our entire year counting down the minutes until summer arrives. And despite when the much coveted season eventually rolls around, we initially begin complaining about the lack of air conditioning and how much we’re melting, deep down – we love it really. There’s something so wonderfully magical about summer. Something that brings out the best in all of us, even if it’s just the little things. It brings people together, takes us outside and forces us to connect with our world. As you might be…

Things my friends have taught me

I suppose it’s the cliche, as you grow older you begin to realise who your true friends are. But it’s true. I can now count the number of ‘real friends’ on one hand – and I’m much more selective about who I let into my ‘inner circle’ in my head. By nature, I’m a very kind, forgiving and generous person. I’m by no means the perfect friend, but if I care about someone, I’ll help them no matter what. One of the qualities I pride myself on the most is that I’m loyal. But around the age of 18, I…

How to stay healthy while travelling

So the past few months have been a whirlwind of planes, trains, beaches and sandy shoes. And I wouldn’t trade in a single second. I’ve strolled along the Miami boardwalk with my girlfriends, enjoyed the sunset on a Caribbean beach with my boyfriend and even taken part in a spot of snow yoga with new friends, high in the Swiss alps. But as much fun as travelling can be, it does also leave you feeling a little bit out of sync. All the time differences, jet lag, dinners out can leave you feeling, for lack of a better word, sluggish.…

13 Reasons Why We Need To Talk About Mental Health

So like many other girls and guys this bank holiday, I’ve spent 13 hours of my weekend binge watching Netflix’s latest box-set wonder, 13 Reasons Why. Based around the undeniably tragic topic of a young girl’s suicide, it documents the reasons behind her untimely passing and is thought to raise awareness of mental health in young people by providing (in graphic detail, I might add) the story behind her heart-breaking decision. It isn’t based on a true story but of course, for so many people, me included – it does bare a striking resemblance to real life. I’m sure everyone watching…

Our MINI Adventure: A Beach Stay-cation in Aldeburgh

As much as I love my home, when you live, breath and work there – sometimes, you just need to get away. A change of scenery (for more than 24 hours) helps to refresh the mind, challenge your ways of thinking and inspire your creative patterns. In other words, it’s healthy for the mind and soul – and David and I probably don’t do it enough. There’s something rather freeing about going on a stay-cation, because there’s no scheduled flights, transfers or security checks. You can jump in the car, hit the open road and see where the day takes…
