Photo Diary: Seaside

While some bloggers post photos of hipster cafes, buzzing city streets or far-flung sun-drenched beaches, I bring you…the British seaside. In winter. Sorry guys.

Anyway, if you’re planning a seaside trip, I recommend going armed with plenty of 2p coins, because you’ll probably spend a lot of time on the slot machines trying to win pointless stuff (and failing, because who the hell has ever won something on those things?).

Rome Travel Guide: 9 tips for visiting Rome

Keep an eye on your stuff. As in many cities, pick-pocketing is rife in Rome, especially during the peak holiday season. Keep your handbag zipped up securely and close in front of you when you’re on the Metro or near busy tourist sites (especially when taking selfies – I saw so many people with open bags hanging off their shoulder while they were busy perfecting their pout. Don’t do it!).

Watch out on the roads (and the pavements, for that matter). You’ve probably already heard that driving in Rome is a bit on the crazy side – I had, but nothing prepared me for just how crazy it was. You basically have to walk into the road and hope for the best at pedestrian crossings or the cars will just keep on driving. And don’t think you’re safe strolling along Rome’s many quaint cobbled side streets – scooters and motorbikes speed around them like they’re on a race track. It’s all part of the holiday fun, though – just keep your eyes peeled while you’re eating your gelato. Continue reading “Rome Travel Guide: 9 tips for visiting Rome”

Rome Travel Guide: Photo Diary

St PetersChances are you’re already pretty familiar with Rome’s landmarks, so I won’t bore you with how amazing the Colosseum is, or how you really must go and see the Roman Forum and the Pantheon (although you really, really should – they’re famous for a reason, you know). Instead, I’ve put together this mini photo diary of my favourite snaps from my week in the Eternal City. I went, I saw, I ate gelato… Continue reading “Rome Travel Guide: Photo Diary”

Farm Life

I grew up in Somerset and I have to admit that I never truly appreciated its picturesque countryside when I lived there. I often bemoaned the lack of things to do (i.e. shops), and complained no end whenever it was suggested we go on a Sunday afternoon walk. Continue reading “Farm Life”

March on Instagram

March on Instagram

1. Pastry. Enough said. 2. Amazing burgers from Three Brothers Burgers. 3. My Simplicity Blogger Challenge pattern. 4. New pieces added to my jewellery collection from Bloody Mary Metal. 5. Outfit details from Bristol Fashion Week.

March was rather hectic for me so I didn’t have too much time for snapping. I moved house last week, and packing all my stuff up took about a month. I just seem to have a lot of stuff – books, shoes, sewing equipment, the list goes on. Please tell me there’s someone else out there with as much stuff as me? My boyfriend was rather smug about the fact he only had a couple of bags to pack. Continue reading “March on Instagram”
