Free Weekend in Amsterdam – #WorkPerks

Yep, that’s right! The wonderful company I work for just celebrated their 10th birthday, and what better way to party than an all expenses paid trip to Amsterdam? You know what they say, cocktails always taste better when you’re not paying… This was my second trip to Amsterdam, my first time was last New Year’s…

How To Get Your Dream Job Without Going To Uni

I must have googled this very same phrase at least a hundred times! Originally an optimistic lawyer (until it dawned on me how many years of studying that involved which made me have a swift change of heart) then a keen marketeer, I saw my life plan as going to uni, getting a job, then…

Girl Boss Motivation

Lately I’ve been feeling super positive and motivated about work, social life and general day to day life. Always a bonus, right? I’m determined to keep this good feeling going, so I’m making effort to keep on top of things – keeping the flat tidy, my workload manageable and focusing on blogging. It makes such…

My Mauritius Adventure

I’ve just returned from a delightful 4 day break in Mauritius, and my heart is so full and happy from how beautiful and peaceful a place it is. As someone who travels Europe fairly often but has never gone further than Florida in her life, the 12 hour flight to a completely unexplored area of…

The Ultimate Travel Packing List

I think we can all relate to the struggle of getting on holiday to find you’ve left something behind, especially when you said at least 50 times ‘I feel like I’m forgetting something’, but couldn’t quite pinpoint what it was.

St Patrick’s Day in Dublin, Ireland

St Patrick’s Day, also known as St Paddy’s, is a yearly event on the 17th March, celebrating St Patrick and how he brought Christianity to Ireland.

New Year’s Eve in Amsterdam

It’s been over a month since New Year’s Eve, and although the January blues have faded, I’d still much rather be in Amsterdam stuffing my face with carbs. But wouldn’t we all? Thinking back to happier times, here was my first trip of 2017, where I welcomed the New Year in Amsterdam.     My trip in…

How To Get Over Someone

It’s hard, and it’s always going to be hard accepting change and letting go of someone you have feelings for, especially when it’s not what you want. But, it’s not the end of the world and you will get over them. Even when I get really hurt by a guy, I always find the getting…
