Bartering for Souvenirs in Bali

We arrive in Ubud and I instantly notice it’s a lot more Westernised than Munduk up North. My initial first impressions of the main town is that it’s quite cute – lots of cafes, shops and restaurants lining the street. It’s bustling with people and super lively. It’s a nice change of atmosphere and quite cool to experience a completely new place in Bali.

Waking up at Munduk Moding Plantation

I wake up to the sunlight pouring through the double French doors of our Balinese-inspired villa. A sheer canopy drapes over our king size bed to keep the mosquitos at bay. I snuggle my head into the soft white pillow and look over at Ciaran, half smiling, thinking back to the night we booked Munduk Moding Plantation and how thankful I am to finally be here.

Catching up with a friend at Pomona’s, Notting Hill

I love weekends where I get to catch up with old friends. Life moves so quickly in London and everyone lives such busy lives, that even though you live down the street from a friend, you could go months without seeing them. I truly cherish the times I do get to spend some quality time with good friends and it was so lovely to see my dear friend and fellow blogger, Lauren, a few weeks ago ahead of our trip to Bali.

A Weekend Escape to the Isle of Wight

The Isle of Wight is one of my favourite places in the world. It will forever hold a special place in my heart as it’s where we got married and we spend a lot of Bank Holiday weekends there with family.  A trip to the Isle of Wight is unlike any other – you truly feel as though you are stepping back in time. Although the Island is small, there is a lot do and see. Imagine yourself taking a walk along the beautiful coastline and stopping at the local crab shack to eat some fresh lobster and fish + chips, or enjoying a pint at the Lobster Tap, where King Charles I visited and was sketched by the owner.  If you’re looking to escape for a fun and relaxing weekend, look no further than the breathtaking Isle of Wight!

Cocktails & Tapas at Salvador & Amanda, Covent Garden

Last week, Ciaran and I decided we were long over due for a fun little date night. With so many restaurants, cocktail bars and hidden gems in London, it can be hard to narrow down where to go. We both had a look on Late Night London for some inspiration, a brand new website dedicated to helping you choose where to go on a night out based on what location you want to be in, what type of place you want, what the occasion is, what you’d like to do when you get to said destination, what type of music you want to hear and most importantly, who you’re going to be with. It’s a handy little website that works wonders when you’re in a rut. Try it out, you won’t be disappointed!
