I've lived in rented accommodation for the majority of my life. When my family moved to Asia, we were always in rented accommodation, so I've never slept on a bed that has had a mattress that I've personally chosen. And to be honest, it's never something I've really thought about. So when Leesa Sleep asked if I'd like to review one of their mattresses, I jumped at the chance. And it's completely revolutionised the way I sleep.
I can hand on heart say that I used to have a tendency to overpack. It used to be so over the top that my parents consistently ask me "how heavy my case was", just so my dad could tell me how his bag was 15kg under the limit. I just like to be prepared, okay?!
We’ve all breezed past a shop window and been lured in by incredible holidays that are nothing like the destination you envisioned. I personally find travel agents rather intimidating and can often find myself being drawn to locations that aren’t what I’m after, simply because it’s a good deal.
Perhaps it’s just the way my friends and I function best, but I 100% prefer intense catch up sessions that last over 4 hours compared to regular coffee catch-ups. And a personal favourite way to add a bit of something different is to plan an activity. So I thought I’d share 4 of my favourite ways to spend time with your friends, as well as the perfect opportunity to try something different!
We as a society are always looking for new ideas to make our lives easier. We always want that special gadget, state of the art gizmo that guarantees you will free yourself from the restraints of time and space.
I love brunch. Not only does it provide an incredible excuse to eat breakfast food for lunch but it also means you're not rushing your food. Brunch is just my favourite - and a great way to catch up with friends and family. Pen and Pencil is one of those places that I've always known about and always had on my list but somehow never quite made it out. But when I was offered the chance to come and try their brunch, I couldn't refuse!
