Amsterdam is a foodies heaven! I think everywhere I looked there was yummy food from chips covered in sauces, waffles coated in chocolate, to big ice cream cones. But also nestled away there are healthier cafes and amazing coffee shops (and I mean coffee shops that sell coffee beans). I had seen some places online and had kept them in mind when on my little city break and I loved each and every one of the places we went too. Even my three euro pizza slice was INCREDIBLE!
Warning: This post may make you extremely hungry… Like I am now writing it!

Hello March and hello spring… well now storm Emma has disappeared. Being already three months into 2018 I sat pondering whether or not I am where I want to be and I admit I was slightly (ok I mean extremely) hungover when I was thinking about my life and we all know this is not a good concoction.
As a result, I sat watching some inspirational videos and thought about how I can make some small changes in order to be more productive and be happier with where I am.
I am normally a person who sets big goals normally every Monday, and end up failing and feeling extremely guilty by Wednesday. I am sure we have all been there. So, looking back on this I have changed my perspective on my goals and have decided to make small goals which I can work on and not just goals that are for that week.
Plus, I think if I have told you guys I hopefully will be more likely to stick to them… hopefully!

During this snow apocalypse (thank you to the beast from the east) we are currently having, I find myself slipping off into a daydream of summer adventures.
We all need something to look forward to and this beautiful spot in Marazion, Cornwall is the perfect place in either spring or summer. You may have seen images of this historic castle perched on top of a hill out in the ocean and people wandering up a causeway through the sea! Basically walking on water…
So, if you want a fun day out to look forward too I suggest this gem.

Hello! And welcome to the first post of 2018! I hope you all had a lovely break over Christmas and new year full of eating, drinking and a lot of lazy days. I know I did, I think I wore PJs more than I wore clothes… But it was Christmas so it was allowed.
But back to reality now and I am back at university sitting in my room wrapped up in 100 layers typing this blog post. Yipee to student accommodation!
Now I absolutely loved Edinburgh and recently coming home from there after Hogmanay, I thought I would put together a little guide to the places I have loved. I have only been a few times so I do not have the super exclusive places but I am writing this to tell you all the little tourist spots and cool places to go if you do. As well as this, I have only been when it has been extremely cold so I cannot give tips about Fringe festival or beer gardens as that would be extremely cold! Hopefully, in the future when I visit again, of course, I will go in warmer months.

I entered a bloggers paradise here at Peggy Porschen Cakes! And there was even a blogger perched on the steps under the beautiful doorway with her professional photographer snapping away.
This explosion of pink against the dark London road is an instant uplift especially on the wet cloudy day like ours! You can always rely on the English weather not to let you down ha ha.

I have mixed emotions towards 2017. In some ways it has been the year in which I have achieved so much and in another way it has been the toughest. Never did I think I could cry so much, love so much, laugh so much and work so bloody hard!
I started the year as a 3rd year student at university stressing over my deadline dissertation and thinking of new year resolutions. And now, I am a masters student undertaking my absolute dream course but it has not been the easiest road and I have not let myself enjoy my first term as much as I could. But with the help and support from lots of lovely people, going into 2018 hopefully will be a positive one.

I love London and at Christmas, I love it even more if that is possible because of all the decorations and the atmosphere that London itself has around this time of year. I must say my favorite places to visit at Christmas is Selfridges and Carnaby street they just have the best decorations.
Throughout December Selfridges has tons of stuff going on to celebrate the time of year. Everything from Santa in the store, Christmas choir, and DJs, a party parade, breakfast with Santa and they have a whole floor dedicated to Christmas where you can even buy personalised Christmas crackers!! Only at Selfridges!
