My first AirBnb experience – was it worth the hype?

Since becoming a ‘sort-of’ member of the travel blogging community (I’m trying to get into twitter at the moment…It’s such a great way to chat to other bloggers.. but it’s also a platform that I’m not that naturally drawn to….. which is weird…. because it’s the one social media platform where I feel it’s okay […]

New York City Part 2: Downtown Manhattan

The Little Things: My House Plant Obsession

So, I’ve become a little bit obsessed with house plants recently. I blame the dreamy interior posts on Kate La Vie’s blog. I just feel like a little bit of greenery really makes a room come to life.

The Little Acre Kitchen: My New Favourite Lunch Spot

I LOVE food. One of the main reasons that I exercise regularly is that I could never diet. Life’s too short. Now, when it come to eating OUT, I can be a bit of a fuss-pot. I hate paying for food that I could make better myself. Because of this, I’m constantly on the look […]

The Little Things: A Much Needed Dose of Vitamin Sea

I’ve said it so many times before, but I’m happiest by the sea (or a turquoise blue alpine lake…. i’m not fussy). Theres just something about the sea that I find incredibly calming. I always come away feeling as though my mind has been de-cluttered and re-booted! Whenever we have time, we love going to […]
