Edinburgh Zoo

Our second day in Edinburgh (and the third day of our road trip) saw us taking a trip to Edinburgh Zoo. We got up early, picked up some lunch to take with us and had some breakfast. Ah, the benefit of having our hotel next to a supermarket. 😉 Edinburgh zoo was a short 10 minute drive from our hotel, on the outskirts of the city centre. Funnily, if we wanted to use public transport, we needed to get a tram from the city centre. Which meant driving was the best option for us. But if you do want to Read More…

Creating our home gym

I’ve been working on my daily routines this past year including improve my sleep schedule and morning routine. I have also been making an effort to eat healthier and exercise more. In the Summer months I threw on my work out gear and went for a run around our neighbourhood or made use of outdoor gyms. I also completed my first 5km race and a muddy obstacle race for charity. Now the weather has gotten colder I find myself staying in and doing more exercise at home. The most important part of working out at home is having enough space Read More…

Edinburgh & The Castle on the Hill

After our trip to Alnwick, Ryan and I continued our road trip up to Scotland and our next destination – Edinburgh. We spent 1 and a half days in the city and another at Edinburgh Zoo (post on that to follow!). I got very excited when I saw the “border crossing” layby and insisted we pull over to take some photos. There’s also a layby the other side for those travelling into England. It took around 1 and a half hours from Alnwick to Edinburgh along a beautiful coastal route. I tried to take some photos from the car but Read More…

Halloween tag

Happy Halloween! Tonight I’m donning some Ghostbusters pyjama bottoms, watching some Halloween themed films with my family (and likely some horror films too). I’m hoping we’ll see some trick or treaters as well. If you didn’t know by now Halloween is my favourite holiday, seconded by Christmas. When we were little my sister and I went trick or treating around our village with the other children there and a few chaperones. I think that’s where my love of Halloween and fancy dress began; my parents got very into it, carving pumpkins, decorating the house and playing some tricks on us. Read More…

Alnwick Castle and Gardens

Ryan and I have just gotten home from our road trip through part of England and Scotland. It was a long drive but I’m happy we did it instead of using public transport, we came across some picturesque towns and villages. Our holiday started with a 6 and a half hour drive up the Fosseway, an old Roman road connecting Exeter to Lincoln . According to our Google Map route we drove 14 hours and 40 minutes on our way up to Scotland! Alnmouth – seaviews and a haunted hotel Our first destination was the small seaside village of Alnmouth, Read More…

Relax and Unwind: Adult colouring ft Lady Lucas

I love to relax and unwind with an adult colouring book or by doing some oragami. I find both very theraputic and with the clocks going back, the nights are getting longer and days shorter. I enjoy cosy nights in this time of year so will be doing a lot more indoor activities like these. Not only are they relaxing and theraputic, I also get to be creative. 🎨 So when Ashley of Lady Lucas contacted me to review some of her colouring pages, I couldn’t say no! Especially to her cute Halloween designs. 👻🎃💛 Cute characters colouring book This Read More…
