I honestly didn’t know how amazing the food in Amsterdam would be – I’d genuinely next time I go take a food tour as I know I didn’t even scratch the surface for places to eat!  We tried so much food while we were away, so I thought I’d share where we found for great breakfasts, snacks and places for lunch/dinner – if we had breakfast we found we were too full to eat lunch sometimes so we didn’t eat nearly as much food as I’d have liked! On our first full day in Amsterdam I decided to take us off to The Breakfast Club for our first meal of the day. I mean how could we not have breakfast here?! I stupidly forgot to take a picture of my food – just think of the most amazing looking pancakes…

Just before Christmas David and I took ourselves off for a wee city break to Amsterdam, I honestly think that its the best city break I’ve been on. I didn’t over plan the whole holiday, just had a vague idea of what I wanted us to see, rather than knowing where we would be at what time and what day like in previous holidays. We also ate so much amazing food – a post featuring all the foody bits will come soon too! Amsterdam is an amazing city, its so laid back and chilled you could easily spend two days here and see it all or spread it out over a week and just wander about. I want to go back, and hopefully 2018 will see me back there.  We stayed in Amsterdam for 4 nights/ 5 days, we arrived on the…

At the time I’m writing this I am sat at home, having a mental battle with myself on whether or not I should go to the Arbonne Christmas Party that at this moment in time starts in just over an hour. The outfit I’m wearing is the least Christmassy thing ever and although it was an outfit I once rocked with ease I now find myself feeling really uneasy in it, picking at every little thing and to be honest with you getting myself in a bit of a tissy. So I thought what better time to blog, something that historically calms me down and makes me feel better than now.Let me tell you, this post is not something I ever thought I’d be writing but I thought it was something worthwhile sharing as so many people have similar struggles,…

If anyone knows me, you’ll know that I love going to the gym. I try to train at least 4 times a week, some weeks I can train 6 times a week. I was really kindly sent some active wear from UKLingerie – the things I got I am so pleased with.  The first thing I spotted on their website was this lovely spider back top*. All their active wear is from a brand called Acai, the top is really nicely designed. Its a nice sort of thick material with a cut out back. I’ve worn this to the gym a few times now and I have to say it works really well as a gym top. Keeps you cool while you work out, its comfy to wear and it looks cool as well! It’s basically everything you could ask of from a…

As I get older the years seem to genuinely get shorter… They also seem to get more and more shit. Just me that thinks this? No? Ok good. As its now two days in to 2018 I thought I’d do this post.2017 shot by in a heartbreat. I’ve gone through heartbreak, been at an all time low for my self esteem and confidence, picked myself back up, transformed myself completely and became probably the most confident and happy version of myself, met David (my absolute rock and best friend, if you’re reading this Caitlyn and Aileen soz x), failed uni again, been broke all year, had so many panic attacks and lows, having certain people watch your every move online and not leaving you/ your relationship alone and now here we are the end of December 2018 and to be…
