Supercharge your smoothie

/
I’m not sure about you, but I’m already starting to feel a bit sluggish, and the Christmas nights out haven’t started yet. Maybe it’s the cold weather, or it could be that I’ve been doing a lot of socialising of late, which means eating and drinking all the wrong things. To get back on track I’m turning to one of my favourite things: smoothies. Given how I’m feeling, I need these smoothies to be as nutrition-packed as they can be, so I turned to Authority Health, which gives excellent advice on wellbeing and what I should be adding to my...

September 2018 finds

Before I charge head-long into posts about my recent visit to Croatia (if you haven’t been, it’s an amazing country), I’m going to indulge in some of my recent finds. From books and TV shows to apps and wish-list items, here are a few things that I recommend you check out: 1. Vigo – I went to Vigo at the end of July with some friends and it was such a fun trip. It’s on the Galician coast of Spain, not that far from Portugal. It’s not a tourist hot-spot at the moment, so you still get the opportunity to...

A traveller’s guide to packing light (from someone who never could)

I have longed to be one of those travellers. You know who I’m talking about, those people who get off the plane looking refreshed, relaxed, happy, ready to start their holiday, carrying a normal looking piece of hand luggage that isn’t bursting at the seams. Better still, as their suitcase comes off the carousel, it doesn’t sport the bright orange ‘HEAVY’ tag. Oh to be like that. Admitedly in recent years I’ve got so much better. Why? I got bored with dragging so much stuff around with me, tired of paying excess baggage fines and got totally over stressing about my...

Hotel Du Vin and a trip to St Andrews

One of the utterly brilliant things about Scotland is its size; it’s big enough to have loads going on but small enough to make it accessible. Case in point, if you fancy a weekend away like we did, you won’t have to travel too far. For this trip, we settled on St Andrews. Why? Well, firstly, I REALLY wanted to spend a night at Hotel Du Vin. I’ve been to many a Hotel Du Vin bar and restaurant, but had never spent the night. A quick look on their website revealed the kind of rooms you would expect from a...

Road tripping: Balmaha

Saturday was the nicest day Scotland has seen in … I don’t know how long. After what seems like the longest winter ever, there was actual sun. I could hardly believe it. Since the weather was in our favour we had two options: sit in the garden and soak it up or get out of the city. We opted for the later, and an hour-and-a-half later, we found ourselves in Balmaha, on the banks of Loch Lomond. Super accessible (like I said, 1.5 hours from Edinburgh, 30 mins from Glasgow) Balmaha offers the perfect opportunity to enjoy a piece of...

My favourite lifestyle websites

We all have them; those websites that you visit day in, day out, knowing that there will always be content that excites you. With the internet being what it is, distilling the good from the bad can be quite a task, which is why I’m sharing five of my favourite lifestyle websites. These sites have made the cut because they have a good balance of content, the quality is high and they leave me wanting more.  Here goes: 1. The Pool – If The Pool isn’t on your daily list of website to visit it should be. The content is...
