Under £20 Gift guide & Christmas shopping tips | Christmas *

Welcome to the first of my Christmas gift guides.
 I love putting these together so any opportunity for me to do so I will! I have had a good look through some of my favourite sites to share with you what I think would make a fabulous gift. I have decided to start off with sharing an under £20 gift guide as I know these gifts would be perfect for secret Santa or for a friend, sister girlfriend or mum!

A Guide to Bali | Travel

I spent about 10 days in Bali last year and I managed to cram a lot in. So I thought today I would share my little guide to Bali. We flew in to Kuta airport and went from their straight to Ubud. We stayed in the cutest little home stay style place which was right next to the main street of the town. We explored on the first day then on the second day we decided to hire a taxi for the day and asked the driver to take us around to the highlights and temples around Ubud. This is a cheap and fun way to explore the island with your own private guide! 

We told him everything we wanted to see and he charged us about £30 for the full day!

Luxury Honeymoon destinations | Travel*

For some crazy reason I am finding choosing a Honeymoon pretty stressful. I am extremely lucky that I have been able to travel to some amazing destinations in my life so choosing something as special as a honeymoon is just so hard. We are trying to choose a destination where neither of us have been, somewhere we can relax but also has plenty of activities to do and places to eat! We have decided to go in to a travel agent, give them our budget and dates and hopefully get them to help us out. In the mean time Im still looking at lots of beautiful locations and gathering inspiration. I thought  i'd put together a post all about the various locations I believe would be an amazing place to go on Honeymoon.

I stayed in these types of caravans / lodges when I was younger so I was really interested to see what they would be like now!

Healthy Travelling this winter | Tips*

I’m finally at the point where I have to put my heating on. I’m not someone who takes pride in lasting as long as they can before giving in – no shame in that. I’ve also been in my winter PJs and snuggled up in my dressing gown for at least a week, and I’ve already had the awful seasonal transition cold.  

While I was cuddled up in my warm winter nest, all I could do was dream of being back on holiday, having adventures and topping up my tan, and it got me thinking about winter holidays. How do you deal with the transition between climates if you’re headed to a hot country? Or how do you deal with cold if you’re off skiing? I mulled it over and decided it was a great topic for travel tips post. So here we are, my top tips for healthy travels this winter.

Hen party accessories | Wedding

After posting about bride gifts, groom gifts and over all wedding gifts I thought why not write about Hen do gifts & accessories! My amazing maid of honour is doing a fab job organising my hen do, well as far as I know as I actually don't know anything about it! I have been sending her hints of things similar to the above to potentially get for all of our hens. But I have also been keeping an eye out for something I can get her for all of her hard work planning it!
