The Netherlands and its cities have fast become one of my favourite places to be. With its friendly, family oriented people, active culture and rich history, this European destination is one that I would 100% encourage anyone to put on their list. Although Amsterdam is undeniably on most people’s bucket lists, 20 minutes out is the beautiful city of Utrecht, and both are filled with so many activities to keep you busy on your Dutch adventures with all of the food and culture that the Netherlands is known for. During the spring and summer months, temperatures can go up to the mid twenties and can get as cold as below zero during the winter time, so you’ll want to be alert for which time of year you book your holiday to make sure you…

I told myself that I was going to get into reading again this year AND IT’S ALREADY JUNE and I’m not even half way through my list.

I finally made it down to beautiful Brighton! I first visited this seaside town when I was much younger, maybe 5 or 6 and my mum always reminds me of a memory she has of me walking down the pier dancing without a care in the world. This adorable little English town is now definitely going to be where I come for a day when I need to reboot with a good dose of vitamin SEA. My friend Marissa and I left London by train at 8am to get the most out of the day, so the first thing we did when we arrived was find a spot to have breakfast. We found a super cute place called The Breakfast Club, and people were queuing up to get a table so we knew it must…
