Pfft, Blogging is a Piece of Cake

Laptop on desk
Pfft, blogging is a piece of cake…Said no blogger. EVER. I’ve noticed over the last two years of me blogging, that when I tell people I run my own blog in my free-time, a few of them will stare at me with a lost expression as if to say, ‘Is that it?’ Almost as though blogging to them is ‘easy’. Oh sure. I find it particularly difficult at times due to having a full-time job and other commitments here and there. Here’s what some people assume blogging is all about:

My Travel Essentials for Hand Luggage

Travel Essentials Collage
We all know travelling can be stressful at times; ensuring you're at the airport (or other means of transport) on time, making sure you have all your confirmation details for a smooth check-in/check-out experience, but also hoping you packed all the essentials to avoid crying over the fact that you left that new eyebrow pencil at home. Obviously not a priority, but you did spend good money on it!
I tend to always forget something, even if just a minor thing, but it does grate on you when you come to the realisation that you didn't stick to that extremely organised 'To Pack' list. Oh darn. Nevertheless, I figured I'd share with you my go-to travel essentials for hand luggage to ensure you'll have everything you need at all times when you next travel.

Tips for Moving House | Renting & Houseshares

Tips for Moving House
Nearly four months ago I moved out of a house share and into my very own rented flat for the first time. Over the last 5 years I’ve lived in student accommodation and flat/house shares, but I was ready to move onto the next step and live in a space of my own. And I LOVE it! It’s by far the best decision I’ve made this year so far, but that’s not the reason I’m writing this post.

After spending a lot of time searching for places to live and making sure I made the right decisions, I wanted to share with you my tips for moving house. This is tailored to those who are moving into rented property or a flat/house share, as I don't want to commit myself to a mortgage just yet! But who knows, perhaps in a year or two? We’ll see…

Dreaming of Amsterdam

For quite some time now I've been dreaming of going to Amsterdam, just for a couple days, to take in the historic sites and get snappy happy with my camera. I'm a huge fan of visiting places that have lots of quirky cafes and eateries, albeit that's obviously not my main reason for wanting to visit Amsterdam. That'd be one expensive coffee to go!

The windmills, tulip fields, Anne Frank Museum, I AMsterdam landmark, the canals, bike rides, you name it, I want to do it! If you've ever been to Amsterdam, be sure to either share your favourite memories, places, and even share a link in the comments below of your travel diary of your visit to the historic city - even if it was years ago!
