Countdown to Christmas: 24 Do-able Activities for Your Advent Calendar!

Whether you technically celebrate this time of the year or not, you have to admit there's something so awesome about this period.

Depending on your age and location, I'll bet your thankful for this season. From the thrill of fireworks to a yearning for white Christmas, singing out loud to your favourite carols, eating way too much food and relishing the taste of mulled wines. Or maybe you'll have some fun with younger kids finding Santa. Even if you will just be curled up in bed thankful for work free days, there's often something for everyone

Stay-cation in St Ives, Cornwall

If like me, your geography is quite poor and you weren't sure if there were beaches in the UK, well well... there are! I remember a funny episode. My Supervisor randomly mentioned that he wanted to take his daughter out to the beach in Somerset, but it was still too cold. I didn't even pretend to know.

4 Perfectly Do-able Traditions for (Young) Couples

The Dubai Vacations That Never Happened

I'm struggling to remember how old I was. Maybe 16 or thereabout.  

My cousins were planning a holiday to Dubai, and because I was (am) such an awesome brilliant child, my god-parents invited me to follow them!

Obviously I was overly excited while my siblings openly hated my excitement. I stuffed a few clothes into my blue medium sized suitcase waiting for the D-day. 

Our Barbados Holiday: Sun, Beach and Rum Punch!

We were certain of this one fact - applying for visas was such a hassle! Then we found out we didn't require a visa to go to Barbados!  Woohoo.

We looked up holiday deals and found a reasonably priced one for September - British Airways Flights to and fro + hotel for 7 nights at a pretty decent 3 star resort called 'All Seasons Resort'.  We discussed the financial implications - Yes, we could afford it.

Happy Easter People!

Hope you're having a great holiday (if applicable!).

Did you give or receive any Easter eggs - or do you just not understand the Easter eggs fuss.
