L E I C E S T E R Sunday Sunshine

  The weather could not have been more perfect this week-end, hitting highs of 26C in the city. The streets weren’t only buzzing from the summer weather, but also from the amazing atmosphere infused through the city in support of the Leicester City football champions. After a long night out on the town, it was…

I Suoni Delle Dolomiti

During the first week-end of August, I had the fantastic opportunity to visit my boyfriend in Italy and travel up to the dark green mountains known as the Dolomites. It was such a beautifully serene area, famous for its apple orchards which aligned the mountain sides. We found a little spot to camp for the…

L I S B O N

In September I made my way to Lisbon to stay with a dear Uni friend of mine. As she has lived in the city the whole of her life, I knew she’d be able to show me the best parts it has to offer, hence me not googling anything about the place. I wanted to…

Bradgate Park- LEICESTERSHIRE

Last week I went down to Leicestershire and picnicked with my mum and sisters in the beautiful surroundings of Bradgate Park. It was lovely to be back amongst the English landscape and enjoy the sunny weather! The park has so much to offer to all age groups and is the perfect place to escape to…

Best Pasta Salad by Jamie Oliver

I discovered this little gem last year whilst flicking through cook books looking for interesting recipes before I embarked on my year abroad in Italy. This is another quick and easy recipe that I use, and it really tastes zingy and fresh! It’s perfect if you need to take something to a summer party or…

Landhaus ETTENBUHL

  I went to a wonderous rose garden in Germany a few days ago but unfortunately May was when the roses were at their best. However it was still lovely to see all of these different flowers and trees kept impeccably! I find it quite soothing strolling around the numerous gardens taking in the vibrant…

S I E N A

I visited Siena at the end of March when the sun was shining high, which was great because there are plenty of gelaterias to choose from before deciding to go and sit in the huge piazza that faces the tower (costs 7€ to walk up). Italian’s were sat all around basking in the sun and…

CINQUE TERRE

This week-end I got the wonderful opportunity to go to Cinque Terre in Liguria. It was a mind-blowing experience as the views you get to see are unbelievably beautiful. I started off in the village of Monterosso, which is the furthest north of the five villages. I chose to walk from village to village, which…

Blueberry Burst

This little pot of cooked Blueberries, a dollop of creme fraiche and a sprinkle of lemon zest is a great little dessert that doesn’t leave you feeling guilty. It tastes amazing and you can whip it up in seconds. I definitely reccomend it as a Summer treat!

Toni&Guy Sea Salt Texturising Spray

I have naturally straight hair, which is really fortunate but at the same time it can be difficult to work with because they’re silky and flat. But ever since I bought the Toni&Guy Casual Sea Salt Texturising Spray, I can do more with my hair and make it look voluminous. Now I can do loose…

The Perfect Man: Tom Collins

I know the perfect man does not exist but I believe that if he did,  he would be called Tom Collins. He’d have a certain invigorating cucumber coolness as he spoke, with a dash of zesty lemon charm. So if you are ever agonising about not finding Mr. Right, take a sip of Tom Collins…

Cheeky Cocktail

Nothing screams Summer more than a delicious thirst quenching cocktail in the sunshine. My sister is a cocktail goddess when it comes to inventing and making them. She whipped these up in seconds! It’s only lime, gin and Schweppes bitter lemon but it tastes divine. The old milk bottles add an extra touch with fun straws….
