Airbnb: Thoughts from a first-timer and the hidden gem I found

I had always been sceptical (to say the least!) about Airbnb. I’d read a few horror stories, seen a couple of bad reports and had never really considered booking with them to be honest because of what I’d heard. That was until I was desperately hunting for somewhere half-decent but also affordable for us to stay during our break away in the summer. We hoped to extend our seaside break to Scarborough for an extra night in York – a little stop off on the way home if you like. Hotels were averaging at between £70 and £90 a night…

A little chat about my blogging journey and what I’ve learned from it so far

I’ve been in and out of the blogging loop for the majority of my blogger life to be honest. Definitely for at least the last couple of years. So if you’re still here, thank you for joining me. I’m glad you could make it. When I started in January 2016 I felt excited, full of energy and buzzing to share my ideas with the world. I used to log onto my computer every night to either read blogs or write my own posts. I used to feel like I’d let myself down if I didn’t post at least three times…

5 struggles I have when it comes to creating kick-ass fashion content

Fashion content is some of my favourite content to create. However I very rarely publish fashion-related posts and that’s because I find fashion content so hard to create.

Foodie first impressions: Annie’s Burger Shack, Nottingham

I can be a drama queen, I won’t even deny it, but I am not exaggerating even a little bit when I say that I have dreamed about visiting Annie’s Burger Shack for years. My old boss told me all about Annie’s Burger Shack, probably four years ago now, and that was the first I’d heard of the place. I’ve always loved a good burger (let’s be honest, who doesn’t?) so I just knew that I had to check it out. Four years passed and I still hadn’t been. There wasn’t really a reason why, I just always ended up…

Walkabout, Derby: My verdict on their new menu

I feel like I’ve been writing tons of foodie posts lately and, honestly, I’m loving it. So I’m sorry if foodie posts aren’t your thing but, at the same time, not sorry. On Friday evening me and my boo went along to Walkabout in Derby city centre to try their new menu. I’ve only ever been to Walkabout once before and that was when I was invited along to try their menu the first time. So I kinda knew what to expect but I was also looking forward to trying something new. Our booking was for 6pm and we were…
