The Sunday Catch-Up #2 | The Power of Eternal Sunshine

Happy Easter everyone! The sun is out. Or rather the sun has been out and in case you didn’t know, UK people really treasure the sun when it’s out! Where I live in particular can have a tendency to rain or just be doom of gloom so people take advantage of it to enjoy the sunshine and outdoors because really…how often is the weather this nice? (Not often at all!) The sun doesn’t go down now until about 8pm which has given me a huge energy boost hence the title of this post. Anyone else? This surge of power is giving me countless of ideas and inspiration for projects this coming season that I thought it’d be nice to check in with you all. Think of this as a mini what’s (been) going on? type of post that I’m happy to share with you all today! 🙂 Long, sunny days remind me of summer…which makes me feel young Okay, I’m not actually old. I mean, I am still young in my mind and my heart 😉 but …

Rome Diary Day 2 pt. 1 – What The Romans Made + Detail Envy

Hello beautiful people! Today, I’m continuing my Rome Diary posts! We are onto Day 2, so if you missed Day 1, feel free to catch up here. I took a whole load of photos in Rome so don’t be surprised if this ends up being photo-heavy. In these posts, I try my best to reiterate the experience that I had in photo-form! Enjoy. 🙂 Morning Roma! I don’t know how you all travel but generally speaking, you make the most out of your day to go out early and explore! That means needing a lot of energy to start your day off so breakfast should absolutely not be missed (just like any other day haha). Having breakfast at the hotel just always makes things 10x easier because it’s technically free plus you don’t have to spend time searching for food when you could be going sight-seeing. So rule #1: eat well! Figuring Out Travel Route + Transport (Travel Tip) When traveling, I don’t really believe in sticking solidly to travel itineraries and timetables. I think …

Rome Diary Day 1 – But First, Food! + Fontana di Trevi

As some of you may know, it’s been just over a week since I’ve been back from my trip to Rome! It was my second time going to Italy overall (first time was in Florence). Whilst I don’t profess that I’d necessarily go to Rome again (because there’s so many places to visit for the first time), it is still a destination I’d recommend especially if you’re into the Arts, Culture, History and Food. Visiting Rome was actually on my bucket list but now I can tick it off! ✅ Already, I’m thinking about where I can possibly go next; but most of all, I feel fresh and ready to work hard again! It’s strange, but until you go traveling again and are miles away from your home, you realise how much you needed that break and energy resurge to get you back on track. So in my books, I’d also recommend traveling once or twice a year to freshen up, but to also open your mind because I know I did during this trip. Flight …

The Sunday Catch-Up +I’m back!

So I can’t remember the last time I talked about what I was up to because I haven’t blogged for about two weeks. What have you been up to? The weather is rather gloomy today that I’m slightly contemplating whether to switch the light on but it’s only 12.30pm. I guess I’ll just manage fine and make-do with what there is of the natural light… A Few Days Away From Everything I was meant to post last week but it didn’t happen although I have some drafts handy. (I need to sort those out actually. Crikey.)  I think I may have told a few blogger friends but not really verbally announced that I was on holiday this week to Rome for a few days. It sounds crazy but it was nice to have a few days where you really forgot who you were and what responsibilities you had back at home, but of course, one always has to come back and face reality. (I would always recommend traveling once or twice a year though.) Like …

The Vintage Coffee Shop Of Your Dreams: Barker Tea House

It feels like years since I last updated my ‘Travel’ section but actually, it has been a good couple of months. (Still quite a long time I know.) I thought I’d change it up a bit, and let you into my new favourite place! If you follow me on Instagram, then you may know of my new obsession so I’m here to talk of it more in detail. You will also be pleased to know that this post won’t be a one-hit-wonder as next month I will be traveling to Rome for a few days! So expect more travel-related posts in the next month and a bit. I hope to cover Preparation for Traveling type of posts before I actually go traveling (thinking ahead guys…) so stay tuned for that too. 🙂 Featured in this post:  Barker Tea House located in the High Street Arcade in Cardiff (There is also another Barker’s in another arcade across town. Popular you see.) I love coffee. I love tea too but that’s not so much of a thing …
