PLAYING WITH ELEPHANTS – THAILAND

As well as visiting Bangkok in Thailand,  my friend Laura and I also went to Chiang Mai on our travels. While we were there, we knew we wanted to spend a day with elephants, both because elephants are one of my favourite animals and it’s a ‘once in a lifetime’ sort of event. We researched a lot about which elephant reserve we wanted to visit before heading to Thailand as the majority of parks will perform cruel acts towards the…

WHAT I GOT FOR CHRISTMAS 2016

Christmas came and left in a flash. All that build up for one day sometimes seems a bit excessive but when you see the face of loved ones when you give them their gifts it does seem worth it in the end. I had a lovely, quiet Christmas with my family and I hope you all had a wonderful time too. It’s now February so this post is long overdue! I considered not even posting this but you splendid lot…

MOXY HOTEL LAUNCH – ABERDEEN

At the end of last year, I was invited to the opening of a brand new hotel in Aberdeen. Situated near Aberdeen’s International Airport, this hotel – The Moxy – is the first of its kind in the UK and if the launch party was anything to go by, I think we will be seeing many more of these hotels popping up over the UK in top destinations. Moxy Hotel is a fun, quirky brand that aims to bring the customer…

BLOG GOALS FOR 2017

It’s nearly been a year since I started my blog and I love it. I’m happy with my content, I’ve been able to go to blogger events and meet some really lovely people. So, in 2017, I want to step things up a gear and put even more time and energy into my little blog. I’ve made a list of the goals I want to achieve throughout the year and hopefully I can look back in 2018 and feel proud…

2017 BUCKET LIST

The majority of us will have a list of activities that we want to do before we pass and mine is probably longer than most. One of my New Year’s resolutions this year is to say yes to more (Read my New Year’s Resolution post here) so I thought I would split my bucket list up each year and try to get as much as I can done to make the mammoth, but exciting, task of completing my bucket list…

ABERDEEN CHRISTMAS VILLAGE

From 25th November, Aberdeen saw the return of our Christmas Village, so of course, to get into the Christmas spirit myself and Blair went along to see what this year had to offer. We started off at Jäger Haus, a wooden crafted hut, situated outside Union Square shopping centre.  Here you can treat yourself to a hot apple cider or German beer while sitting in either a heated seating area or in one of their wooden huts cuddled up in a blanket.…
