Utah National Parks Video: Canyonlands and Arches

It’s official: I’m hooked on American National Parks. As part of my recent trip to Salt Lake City, I spent a few days exploring the National Parks of south-eastern Utah. From the massive expanses of Canyonlands, to the sculpted beauty of Arches… I’ve honestly never seen anything like it before. It even surpassed my trip to Yosemite National Park last year, when I camped overnight deep within the forest. I’m already day-dreaming of my next National Park adventure! Our Utah…

A Week in Salt Lake City, Utah (video!)

Hopefully you guys saw my post last week, all about the Cricut Make-A-Thon conference? The super cool folks at Cricut flew me out for the event… but I decided to expand on the trip and turn it into a little holiday, too! Gotta make the most of that 9 hour transatlantic flight. ? Gareth and I landed in Salt Lake three days before the conference, which gave us a good bit of time to explore the city. You guys, we loved…

A mini break in Lisbon, Portugal (with video!)

I ticked a big item off my bucket list earlier this month. I spent a long weekend in Lisbon, one of the foodie capitals of Europe! It was every bit as picturesque and dreamy as I was hoping. We spent 4 days exploring colourful streets, eating custard tarts (SO TASTY) and strolling along the waterfront. You’d never suspect it from the photos, but the weather was a bit hit-and-miss (we got caught in a huuuge rainstorm on the first day). But we…

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…
