NYE in Bruges, Belgium (video)

I know, I know; New Year’s Eve is a distant memory. But I’m gonna revisit it for one last blog post, I hope you don’t mind! Way back on the 29th December, I hopped in the car and drove all the way to Dover, through the channel tunnel, across France and into Belgium. Phew, what a journey! I then spent a few nights in Bruges with Gareth and his family, to celebrate New Year. It was the first time I’ve…

Easy DIY Christmas decorations with wooden beads (video)

It’s almost that time of year… mince pies, festive films and a whole lotta Christmas crafting! Of all the Christmas crafts, I think tree decorations are probably where you can have the most fun. There’s no need to make them overly intricate or complicated; simple, easy designs often work the best! This year, I was inspired to make these very easy DIY Christmas decorations with wooden beads. I tend to go for a rustic wooden theme at Christmas, accented with bold pops…

Yosemite National Park travel video

Yosemite Valley is one of the most beautiful places I’ve ever been to. Looming sequoia trees tower above you as the sun filters through the canopy, peaceful streams trickle by and wildlife is abundant in every direction you look. In my Yosemite National Park travel vlog, you can follow along as I hike to Yosemite Falls, Half Dome village, El Capitan and more of the top sights in Yosemite Valley. We were only in Yosemite National Park for one day, but we…

Watch my San Francisco video

I’m feeling some major post-holiday blues. I’ve been back in the UK for 2 weeks now, following my epic week-long trip to San Francisco. You’d think I’d be over it by now, but nope; I’m still day-dreaming of California… You know when you visit somewhere and it just clicks? I seriously could’ve stayed there and not come home! I can’t put my finger on what it was that I loved so much about San Francisco. The city just has SO MUCH…

4 days in Berlin, Germany (video)

You guys – have you ever been to Berlin? If not, you should defo check it out! It’ a bit of an odd city… in that there isn’t a huge amount of landmarks or specific stuff to actually do (especially compared to other European capitals like Paris, Rome, London etc). But it more than makes up for that with it’s bursting creative scene. If you hunt out the right areas, you’ll be rewarded with some of the coolest indie shops, hipster…

Ah what the heck… *taps on desk to mimic drumroll*… I’m finally able to share my 1 second a day video with you! For those that aren’t aware, let’s cast our mind waaay back at the start of 2016. I set myself the challenge of recording 1 second of video footage every single day for a…

Make an origami star garland (video)

I’m just gonna go straight in and say it: I LOVE ORIGAMI. The Japanese art of paper-folding has had a real resurgence in previous years, to the extent that it’s now pretty ubiquitous in any crafter’s skill set. But this popularity certainly hasn’t watered down the appeal for me – I just think there’s something really satisfying about turning a plain, boring sheet of paper into an intricate work of art… just by folding it. Now, it probably goes without…

Easy spiced toffee sauce recipe (video)

Oh man, my sweet tooth is definitely coming out of hibernation. I’m not sure if it’s the Christmas ads, the cold weather or just pure old fashioned gluttony… but I’m loving the sweet treats lately! What’s more, since attending the School of Artisan Food the other month (read about that, here), I’ve been eager to try out a few variations on some of the skills I was taught. The time has finally come! Inspired by the spiced autumn flavours that…
