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.

So many things have evolved in ways I never expected them too and I’m currently sat here feeling very lucky indeed. But not in a smug way, because everything up until this point has been a long, hard slog – so I’m finally enjoying the rewards!

14 Things That Make Christmas so Special

Despite social media often displaying otherwise, Christmas doesn’t have to be a showcase of hugely expensive gifts and extravagant gestures. I know in our family, it’s not necessarily the presents but the family traditions that make it the special time that it is. Too often we get lost in among the commercial aspect of the holiday season, panicking about whether the presents we’ve bought will be well received or whether Aunty Marge has got you another shelf and set of marbles that you have to feign delight for. Our Christmas lists might start out as long as our 8ft/10ft trees…
