If you’ve been reading for a while, then you know how much of a huge fangirl I am of Harry Potter. I have been ever since I was at school and I still am now. In fact, if anything, I love it more than ever.
It literally fills me with joy when I get to experience something that was part of the books and/or films or the inspiration behind it, so imagine how I felt getting to visit an immersive replica of Diagon Alley, complete with shops, The Leaky Cauldron and a giant fire breathing dragon.
Happy Galentine’s Day everyone!
Today is the day we celebrate our best girl friends and the female relationships we all have in our lives. And with tomorrow being Valentine’s Day we’re celebrating love in all it’s shapes and sizes. So, what better way to do this than with some kind of food.
The Amalfi Coast is an amazing place to visit and Sorrento is a gem of a town whatever the time of year. In summer you have incredible weather, although crowded I imagine, and during the winter it’s cooler but easier to explore.
I was lucky enough to spend a couple of days here back in December and here are my recommendations of places not to miss if you decide to take the trip yourself! Continue reading
You guys know how much I love Harry Potter and as promised I’m bringing you an updated Warner Bros. Harry Potter Studio Tour! There have been a number of new additions made since I first visited back in 2012 and I want to share those with you here.
Santiago de Surco may not be the top foodie destination on everyone’s list (see Miraflores!), but it’s my local district and I’ve managed to find some great locations to eat, drink, shop and relax.
Surco is a very large district and therefore contains a huge variety of places to visit. It’s honestly a bit of a one stop shop for everything you could ever need! It also has some of the best green spaces in the district (apparently the district has won awards for its parks), and due to its location in the valley it even has the perfect climate to cultivate its own vineyards.

In the UK, January has to be one of the worst months of the year. After the 6th, nothing is festive anymore and the days are dark and cold most of the time with not a fairy light in sight. It’s also the month where you have to wait the longest to be paid, so it’s always the time to tighten your belt, so to speak.
However, I think the best way to shake those January blues is to go and find something fun to do. And, let’s be honest, crazy golf (alongside good food and drink) is definitely fun – with a bit of competition thrown in for good measure.
The Bavarian Alps is the destination that made all my winter dreams come true this year.
Last month I headed over to Germany to fulfil my dream of visiting a traditional German Christmas market. I decided on Munich as my destination (there are so many markets throughout Germany) as it meant that I could also visit the gorgeous snow-topped Bavarian Alps whilst there.
I don’t at all believe in making New Year’s Resolutions, but I thought, after enjoying compiling my 2017 review, that I might like to put some goals down in writing and see how many I’ve achieved by this time next year.
Is it just me or has this year whizzed by in a flash?
As a child, I’m sure the space of time between the summer holidays was a never-ending year of school, but now as an adult that same space of time seems to last a nanosecond. I feel like I’m getting older way too fast! I have to say though, it may have been a quick year, but I made sure I packed it full. I was determined this year to make the most of all the opportunities I came across and I think I did pretty well. Continue reading
