Climbing Mt. Bromo volcano in Indonesia

Excursion to Mt Bromo

Check out my first ever video diary on our 2 day excursion to Mt. Bromo; an active volcano in Indonesia.

Bamboo Tattoo in Brewski, sky bar in Bangkok, Thailand

Account Suspended

If you're coming to Thailand; whether on a boozy holiday, a spiritual retreat or a backpacking adventure- chances are you may think about getting a tattoo and why not? Tattoos are awesome! I now have 4 tattoos, one from a drunken holiday in Spain (I know sounds nothing like me) and the rest from right…

Things to do in Hua Hin Thailand

It’s a jolly holiday-Hua Hin

All I seem to be doing lately is apologising for not writing enough, or forgetting to update my social media blah blah blah. Today is the same. For the past 2 weeks I have been settled in the fanciest hotel I've ever been in my life (more on that later) in the beautiful coastal town of…

Waterpark, under water, camera, fun, splash, Thailand

Account Suspended

Before half term started I made a promise to myself that I would write every single day...it's obvious that that just hasn't happened. I apologise I haven't kept this promise but I've been pre-occupied with the 5* resort we've been staying in for the past 2 weeks (I'll take some photos of it and write…

York, England

Account Suspended

From the ancient capital of Thailand to the ancient capital of England; York is one of my favourite places in the world. Rich in history with beautiful architecture, York is a must see destination in the UK. Established by the Romans in 71 AD (which blows my mind when I think about it), this place…

First impression of Belgium? Everywhere smells of waffles. First off, before I get into the waffle (get it?!) of my usual blogs, I'd like to thank our two good friends Jason and Sofie for letting us stay in their apartment in Belgium. You're awesome. I've been told many times not to go to Bruges. It's…

The Christmas markets in Cologne, Germany are INSANE! Check out which ones you should visit and when!

Account Suspended

Merry Christmas everybody! Wait...what do you mean I'm a couple of months late? Okay, so I know it's early February and after quite possibly the longest January ever recorded Christmas feels like absolutely ages ago. BUT as you're probably aware, I've been completely MIA, so I've found myself in a bit of a situation- I…

On holiday or travelling on a budget? Or just bored and looking to do something over the weekend. Check out my guide on things to do for completely free in ANY city!

10 things to do for free (ish) anywhere

I have found that I am always going to be skint. Always. Mainly because I always have something to spend my money on; whether I'm saving to go travelling or I'm splurging all my cash on Gymshark, I never have spare money in the bank. I always try and stretch my cash as far as…

Bangkok- the most expensive city in Thailand. Check out what you can do for free (more or less)

Account Suspended

Thailand is cheap, but it isn't as cheap as everyone's preconceptions. When I call home and tell my family about what I've been up to, I'm always met with similar responses 'how much did that cost?' closely followed by 'oh that's not as cheap as I thought!'. Newsflash, not everything in Thailand will cost you…

Island hopping can be pricey, check out my free guide on things to do in Koh Phangan Thailand

Free(ish) things to do in Koh Phangan

Koh Phangan; the infamous party island, was so much more chilled than I initially expected. An outdoor cinema, crazy golf, beautiful beaches, yoga and meditation retreats and more vegan food than even I could eat was not at all what I anticipated from the full moon party's host. Thailand's Southern Islands are possibly the most…

Wanting to travel Europe but on a tight budget? Check out my free things to do list!

Account Suspended

Travelling Europe can be really daunting- especially on a budget as it's renowned for being expensive. I was working full time in a shop on minimum wage saving every penny for my European trip, so if there's one thing I know, it's how to spend your days doing stuff for free, even in some of…

After my Girls Love Travel takeover (If you haven't seen it yet, check out my photos and stores here!) I've been getting so many messages from girls all over the world asking how they can do what I do so I thought it would make for the perfect post. I love speaking to all of…

Want to backpack around Europe but have no idea where to start? Check out my top 10 European destinations to help you out!  Keywords: travel, holiday, interratil, europe, summer, portugal, coast, sun, sea, sand

Top 10 destinations-Europe

This list was SO hard to make-there were only a few places I really didn’t like so to compile my top 10 was super difficult. Don’t judge my super touristy picks; just because a place is full of tourists doesn’t mean it’s not beautiful, besides we’re all tourists anyway. There are also a few places…

Want to travel South East Asia but have no idea where to start? Check out my top 10 unmissable destinations to visit!  Keywords: Thailand, Vietnam, Cambodia, Laos, Malaysia, Singapore, Backpackers, Travel, Budget, Cheap, Holiday

Top 10 destinations-Asia

I've spent so long deliberating this list; Joe and I always discuss what our favourite places are and they're forever changing and shifting positions in my mind. I think I've locked it down here...and I'm pretty happy with it. I have loved my Asian travels too much to put into words; the continent is so…

Thinking of backpacking or travelling around South East Asia? Check out how much money I spent whilst there for 6 months.  Keywords: Vietnam, Thailand, Singapore, Malaysia, Cambodia, Laos, South East Asia, Budget, Cheap, Holiday, Travel

Account Suspended

Wednesday 21st June. A truly momentous day. This was the day that I got paid from my teaching job and in turn the day I stopped living from my savings. It took me a year to save up enough money to solely depend on for 6 months- which I don't think is too bad. For…

Exploring Thailand: The country guide

Possibly the best (and possibly the most obvious) thing about living in Thailand is, well… you’re living in Thailand. This beautiful country is incredibly vast and there are unlimited things to do and places to see; of course you will have heard of the well known destinations; but there are also so many more you…

Fashion

#whatIworelastweek Check out how I styled a simple pair of black jeans every day for work   tags; #fashion #style #workwear #veganfashion

Account Suspended

The black jeans edit When I got back from Thailand 5 months ago, the only clothes I had were tiny crop tops and some of the shortest shorts you'll have ever seen. Why? Basically because I had the bright decision to either sell, bin or donate literally ALL of my clothes before I left. This…

What's in my bag! What to pack! Everyday in Thailand.

What’s in my bag?

I am one of the nosiest people you will ever meet; I just can't help myself. I am the girl who will be twitching the curtains when a fight breaks out in your neighbourhood, I'm the girl who stalks the 'oversharing' school friends on Facebook to see who is getting divorced, who had an affair…

Maui Moisture is everywhere but is PRICEY! Check out my review so you don't have to splash your cash!  Tags; vegan beauty, shampoo, conditioner, hair mask, curly hair, curls like us, hair care, cruelty free beauty

Maui Moisture- Is it worth it?

Recently, all I've seen over Instagram is Maui Moisture this, Maui Moisture that; there are ads everywhere and all of my favourite influencers have been going on about it. Naturally, I had to get in on the hype; I mean, I'm a marketing girl and I'll fall for anything with pretty packaging and a Facebook…

Check out my Spring Summer 2018 wishlist from three of my favourite brands; Asos, Missguided and Nasty Gal.  For me, this season is all about pastels, tie front tops, mustard and oversized denim shirts

Confessions of a shopaholic- SS 18

I am a self-proclaimed shopaholic, always have been, always will be. When I got my first student loan I spent almost every penny of it on Dr Martens and a cool (at the time) Tye-dye denim jacket from Topshop so could only afford to eat a single bowl of pasta and tinned tomatoes a day…

Romwe is literally everywhere right now; Instagrammers, influencers, Youtube Stars and Bloggers are all dripping in Romwe. But is it legit? I spent some serious $$$ to check if it's worth it so you don't have to!

Account Suspended

Romwe practically stalks me. It’s all over my Facebook adverts, I see it on Instagram, Youtubers are wearing Romwe- but it does beg the question, is it legit? I gave in to pressure and had a look at their website; unlike Wish or Ali Express, the website looks pretty good. The images match, the models…

Food

I went fruitarian for a week to try and detox and cleanse my body. Check out how it went on my blog  Keywords: food, vegan, fruit, diet, colourful, market, street

Account Suspended

Okay, so full disclaimer, I wasn’t actually Fruitarian for a week. I did have the best intentions though; I originally planned to do it for a full seven days, but unfortunately that just didn’t happen for me. Perhaps foolishly, I told everyone (maybe bragged a little) that I was only going to eat raw fruit…

Struggling to find vegan food in Thailand, want to know the best places in town or learn some easy Thai phrases you can say to street vendors? I got you!

Account Suspended

There seems to be a common misconception that it is incredibly difficult to be a vegan in Thailand, which couldn't be further from the truth. I've met friends who were vegetarian in their home country and converted back into eating meat out here because they couldn't find anything to eat; this is CRAZY to me.…
