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…

The Ultimate Christmas Gifting Guide 2016

I’m both slightly smug and embarrassed to say that I started Christmas shopping back in September. When it comes to all things festive, I absolutely love getting into the holiday spirit early because once the 25th arrives, it all seems over too quickly – so I figure why not make the most of the build up! This year, I decided to put together a mammoth Christmas gifting guide for all my favourite finds – featuring suitable presents for every member of the extended family. Focusing on food, interiors, beauty, fashion and other quirky gifts, hopefully it will inspire even the…

How to prep for the party season

The month filled with parties, prosecco and pampering is very nearly upon us. Each year, it creeps up on us slowly – before revealing itself in a rather glamorous fashion and 2016 has been no different. Despite feeling a little blue about the cold, dark evenings and having to wrap myself up in a ridiculous number of layers, the fact that the festive season is ahead makes it all worthwhile. However, we’re a whole year out of practice – so I thought I’d put together a little guide to prepping for the party season. Grab a cup of tea, pop on…

How to Stay Safe While Blogging

The title of this might sound a bit odd. Because for the large part, blogging is a rather ‘safe’ job by nature. There’s rarely any stunts you have to pull (aside from that time I thought it would be a good idea to say yes to a mountain adventure sports press trip – good one, Scarlett) and you don’t have to handle dangerous machinery (although there was that one time I caught the tip of my finger in my camera cover while closing it – ouch!). So to sum up, it’s not exactly an adrenaline junkies dream job. Being careful isn’t…

How to have the Dream Magnum Date

As you probably know by now, I’m lactose intolerant (unfortunately) and yet since I do most of the cooking in our house, so my poor boyfriend David is pretty much spared of all cheese, milk and dairy products. I know he doesn’t mind too much (and actually prefers almond milk with his porridge) but when it comes to date night, I do try and make sure there’s a treat or two that offers something more exciting for him. Because lets face it, as fab as sweet potato brownies sound (and compensate for my chocolate void), they aren’t a patch on the…
