autumn goals | making the next season a good one

teen-smiling-portrait

As every gal and their mother has pointed out already, IT’S AUTUMN, PEOPLE.  Not that hint of an autumn followed by a hint of an Indian summer we had a couple of weeks ago, but the real deal.  Dun dun dun.  And that’s about as dramatic as it’s possible to make a bit of drizzle and increased intake of hot beverages sound. It’s become something of a tradition of mine to make seasonal goals rather than New Years ones.  Seems…

everything there is to love about glamping | big berry lifestyle resort, slovenia

big-berry-glamping-pods

I’m an outdoorsy kind of gal deep down.  I mean, I adore cities with all their buzz and fun, but at the end of the day, if I was held at gunpoint and forced to choose between living in a city or the countryside forever (not that I forsee such a dramatic ultimatum but let’s roll with it), I’d choose the countryside hands down. However.  I’m way too much of a basic bitch to sacrifice my wifi and hairdryer, and…

all by myself | lonely in a crowd

girl-on-swing

First things first, I can’t hear the line ‘all by myself’ without hearing ‘Obama’s elf’ instead.  That YouTube video has ruined Celine Dion for me.  Now I think of Bridget Jones sat on the sofa, in her pyjamas, theatrically singing “don’t wanna beeeee OBAMA’S ELF” and it’s a very strange image indeed. Now I’m not in a Bridget Jones situation by any means.  I’m just at the point where I’ve waved goodbye to having a group of people around me…

barcelona: part 3 | 15 fabulous things to do on a solo trip

olympic-park-barcelona

Barcelona, you were good to me.  You gave me the ‘I am so content with life right now’ feels.  I am absolutely 100%  certain that I want to return. In the meantime, a whopper roundup of my first trip!  As I’ve mentioned about 50 times already, this was my first solo overseas experience, so I’ve written this as a diary / thoughts and advice for other first time solo travelers / general observations on Barcelona.  Plus tips for how to…

just the little things

avenue-trees-teen-girl

Happy Sunday, folks! I’m writing this on Saturday evening, in my joggers, with a glass of wine, sitting indoors on a deckchair.  Packed my bags for solo trip number 2 in the morning which I’m SO FRICKIN EXCITED for.  Been through my checklist about 6 times already.  Probably still forgotten something.  Undecided whether to attempt a nap before setting off at 1am.   Eaten spaghetti bolognese. Not sure why I felt the need to set the scene like this but there…

barcelona: part 2 | retrome urban retreat

barcelona-boutique-hotel

 How the flipping heck has one week passed since I left this place already?  It’s gone *almost* as quickly as my 3 days in Barcelona whizzed by.  Jeez September you’re a speedy one. Anyway.  Welcome to my Barcelona crib (I wish – for once a city I could actually imagine myself living in!).  ‘My place of rest for 3 days’ doesn’t quite have the same ring to it.  Retrome Urban Retreat sounds quite snazzy though, don’t you think? If you’ve…

love it? hate it?

teen-girl-portrait

Warning that this post’s gonna involve me taking clothes way too seriously and chitchatting about life atm.  Barcelona travel-y posts will resume shortly! But first, I introduce you to my Barbie Bag, as I’ve christened it.  Sometimes I’ll spot an item on a shelf and decide I need it in my life in approximately 0.2 seconds.  Then I’ll decide that  it’s completely ridiculous and I’ll never use it.  Then I’ll umm and ahh over it for weeks.   Cat shorts, for…
