A day in Disneyland Paris

NB: This will be an image heavy post! During my recent trip to Paris with my friend Kelly, we spent the 3rd day in Disneyland! We had a one day ticket covering both parks – I brought a Lion King vest top and an Eeyore hoody to wear. We got on the train early morning and made our way on the train to Disneyland, it was about 45 minutes from Charles de Gualle – Etoille metro station (the one for the Arc de Triomphe). We had an amazing day riding rollercoasters, taking many photos and saw the night time illumination Read More…

A long weekend in Paris

NB: This will be an image heavy post! I have just came back from a long weekend in Paris with my friend Kelly! It was an amazing trip and we got a lot done in the few days we were there, including a trip to Disneyland. We flew with Easy Jet, with hand luggage only and stayed in the Ibis Paris Eiffel which, as the name suggests was near the Eiffel Tower. Our room was fairly basic but the locstion was perfect with a metro station, bakery, small supermarket and a few takeaways a short walk away. It was a Read More…

Evening routines and getting a better nights sleep

My evening routine and, as a result, my sleeping patterns have been a huge mess lately, I’ve been struggling to fall asleep and often find my self staying up late in some vain attempt to tire myself out. I spend a lot of lost time on social media or reading lifestyle and fitness blog posts until the early hours, with a handful of fashion posts thrown in as well. I’ve also been known to binge watch TV shows… :-/ I’m looking at you, ‘The Walking Dead’, and you ‘Pretty Little Liars’! Some days I would sleep 5 hours, the next Read More…

Sunday lunch at The Golden Farm, Cirencester

Last month, the Sunday after my mum’s birthday in fact, my parents treated me to Sunday lunch at the newly reopened Golden Farm pub, it’s local to us with a rustic decor – farm animal art work, a plough hanging from the ceiling and a hare statue which is part of the Cotswold Hare trail (I’ll have to remember to take some photos next time). For lunch they were offering a main course for £9.95 with a choice of beef, chicken, pork, lamb. I had the chicken and my parents both had the pork, all the dishes were served with Read More…

The Phoenix Festival

The day after Reading festival, Ryan and I decided to go to another festival, and this one was a lot closer to home – The Phoenix festival in Cirencester. It’s a two day event held in Cirencester’s Abbey Grounds and 2017 celebrates its 5th birthday. The festival focuses on local musicians – one of my favourite local bands, Subslider, performed Saturday afternoon – and tribute artists. This year’s headline acts were Los Palmas 6 (Madness tribute) and David Live (David Bowie tribute). The event has two main stages, an open mic stage, a DJ booth and a performer’s arena. It’s very Read More…

Day ticket to Reading festival 2017

Ryan and I bought a day ticket to Reading festival last Saturday, mostly to see headline act, Eminem! We’ve both been fans of his for the past 20 years or so but have never seen him live. This was our first festival experience. We left early Saturday morning and made the short trip down the motorway to Reading, it took about an hour and we stopped briefly at TK Maxx so Ryan could purchase some new sunglasses. Rain had been forecast most of the week but it turned out to be glorious sunshine on the day. 🌞🌡 Once we got Read More…
