    I’m unashamedly a self-confessed foodie.  I love trying out new eateries and researching recipes. As far as I’m concerned there’s nothing that a hearty meal (or a late-night Dominos) can’t fix, and it’s even better when it looks so good its Instagram worthy. We’ve all been guilty of taking a quick snap of a particularly […]

  • Paris

    The adventures that start along the line of “let’s make a bad decision” usually end up as the best stories. Have you had those adventures? You need at least one. Start by taking a last minute trip, one you didn’t see coming – could be to anywhere. Down the street, next town over, next city, […]
