Who loves Autumn?

The leaves are orange, the trees are bare, the cosy clothes are out in the cold breezy air…  I am crazy about the autumn, it’s even been noted on more than one occasion that I was born for the autumn months! I was born on the hottest day of the year in 1991 and even…

Autumns in Oxford

It’s that time in Oxford where we are stuck with a cold crispy breeze, the morning chill and desire to spend the rest of the winter tucked up in bed like a moomin along with the inability to be outside without a cosy knit or scarf! Truth be told, I look forward to this time…

Dancing with Dinosaurs

Oxford is the city of past floating through the new. To visit is to step into the past whilst living in the present…  With some of the countries most incredible museums strewn across the city of Oxford it seems almost alien to me that you wouldn’t want to add Oxford to your list of places…

Wicked weekends

I am so thrilled the U.K. has bank holidays, it’s an opportunity for those of us who work full time to take a few days holiday without having to dip into our precious holiday funds from work. Here are my tips on making the most of these times and what you can get up to…

Can a place be Hygge?

Hygge is a feeling you can’t fake or make happen. It is those little moments in life you feel entirely at ease and relaxed somewhere. That place could be snuggled under a duvet with friends sipping hot chocolate and gossiping about old times. It could be watching a silly movie with your sister or best…
