when your wild camping isn’t so wild “Wild camping is camping outside of campsites..”wikipedia What springs to mind? Abundant fields of flowers, mountains on the horizon and the noise a nearby stream your morning alarm? Well you’d be totally right. There were days on our 6 months trip where we […]
the psychological battle with uniforms in my life Back at school it was the bane of my existence. The uncomfortable restrictive shirt and blazer combo, the choking tie and hideous skirt, yet now I am a fully fledge adult I find myself pining after just that….a uniform. I hated being […]
A stunning depiction of a dystopian future where abortion is once again illegal in America. A journey seen through the eyes of different women and their back stories. If you think Margaret Atwood’s Handmaids tale and you can’t go far wrong from this disturbing storyline repressing women. Only the difference […]
So chances are you are nearly done with your van conversion and firstly I want to say…congrats! It’s a bloody hard slog to get to this point. You are trawling through Pinterest eagerly sourcing inspiration because, let’s face, it now the basics are in the bare ply isn’t quite cutting […]
& just like that i am a changed woman. The old me tucked away in a box meek and feeble because that’s right you can all fuck off. There I said it – no asterix, no more hiding away, you can all do one! No more misses nice me. No […]
That age old saying….you think I would say make lemonade but after visiting the sun-drenched hills of Sorrento you’d be sadly sadly mistaken. When life gives you lemons, make f*cking epic limoncello. The below recipe was spoken to me when I visited a beautiful farm named La Masseria (a beautiful […]
Margret Atwood holds a special place in my heart. I fell in love with her once more with the resurrection of ‘The Handmaid’s Tale’ thanks to Hulu’s stunning depiction of the dystopian future Atwood so vividly depicts. It’s quite messed up to say I enjoyed both the novel and the […]
Travelling – the term I would say is vastly different to a holiday. Long periods away from your home comforts means your packing needs to be on point or you’ll be trawling the shelves of a local supermarket in search of items you can only get on UK soil, which […]

ENOUGH TO CHANGE YOUR MIND? A REVIEW OF HAN KANG’S THE VEGETARIAN No, I am joking this book is not one written as a self-help or persuasive novel showing how awful the slaughter of animals are or how meat Affects the brain. No, this south Korean book was introduced to […]
‘To travel is to live.’
Could that be any more true? Each day I yearn for another adventure, after all the world is a pretty big place & I intend to see as much of it as I can.
When you realise life is short your experiences become richer, take pleasure in the little things. Not the luxuries but the necessities of what makes a place, a culture and a person. The adventure is in the journey & life is one big rollercoaster of an adventure.
‘Travel can be a lifestyle.’
A dream or a nightmare. The initial knot of fearing the unknown was unwound by the exhilaration of life on the road. The realisation of what matters most didn’t include the bricked walls that surround me. If anything they can feel like a prison.
The social conformities & pressures of what is deemed to be the ‘norm’ challenged each day when you live the van life. It’s not always glamorous but the experiences cannot be put into words.
‘Life is too important to be taken seriously.’
It’ll pass you by with a blink of an eye and before you know it your glory days are over. I treasure every single moment and believe you should live each like it is your last.
That doesn’t mean you have to be a fake. Life is a rollercoaster of emotions and being open and honest about it means you’re basically not a robot or an insta whore.
‘Clothes mean nothing until someone lives in them.’
It doesn’t need to be designer or the latest trend item. Fashion is the clothes and style is how you wear it. Long gone are my days of buying a new outfit for every event.
I can remember all my favourite moments by what I wore. To me clothes hold the key to unlocking those memories.
