The cold is officially creeping in and with threats of the ’coldest winter in 100 years‘ being thrown around in the media, I thought I’d give you a list of my favourite winter warmers for this year. You may remember I gave you some top tips last year.
It’s time to get toasty people!
Number 1 on my list are Under Armour‘s Coldgear Infared Thermo tights. A little sportier than I would normally go for but they have fun purple bits! And I’m not kidding these are the warmest leggings I’ve ever had the pleasure of wearing.
They are perfect for your morning jog or stroll to the office. And on a particularly chilly day, it may even be smart to wear these underneath your work clothes. But with travel in mind, I think these leggings are PERFECT for taking away with you.
Looking for that perfect gift this Christmas? Well I think I may have found it for you…how about taking your loved ones on a spontaneous VIP trip? You know travel is the best gift of all…
As you may remember my belief is that EXPERIENCES mean way more than things do….so buy a great time for someone instead of tat.
You can nominate any of your Facebook buddies to get a free ride to Holland thanks to the kind folks at Stena Line. You’ve just gotta tag your mate in the comments section of the competition page and write a little bit about why you think they deserve the trip!

I think my mamma deserves a break, the poor petal hasn’t been away in 2 years…so I think I owe it to her to nominate her (don’t read this mum!) haha!
I currently have this image on my phone’s main screen and every time I see it, it gets me thinking that ‘I MUST BE DOING THE RIGHT THING…because my dreams scare the bejesus out of me!’
They’re not nightmares of course, just big, big aspirations! I am finally setting out to do what I’ve always wanted to do and the idea of it makes me happy but soooo nervous at the same time.
I’m so busy with planning my future at the moment that I’ve had to cut back. I have a few social plans but I’ve had to compromise on not being crazy party plans, so I can fit in studying too. No late nights out partying for me anymore :/
But I know it will be worth it because all I’ve ever really wanted is to have a job that challenges me, allows me to travel and most importantly allows Continue reading →
I know I already mentioned my adoration for America in last week’s post but I bring it back up, because I’ve been thinking about the mighty USA a lot lately (thanks to checking out US deals with the guys at AttractionTix).
I have been positively starry eyed since my first trip there when I was 5. But I realised this is the first year in a longgggg time that I haven’t gone back (I got close with going to Bermuda…but not quite). And that’s a pretty big deal for me!
Even last year on my first ever backpacking trip, I ended my journey by popping to my US home from home. So I was pretty excited when I was asked to write a guest post for AttractionTix all about my obsession! (Check it out here).
I gravitated towards writing about my Americana obsession after seeing that you can buy tickets for lots of attractions on their site. The folks at AttractionTix Continue reading →
I have had a the absolute privilege of meeting many wonderful travel bloggers in the past year. (Yes, a lot has happened since my 2012 visit to WTM), and all of them, of course, are seriously well seasoned travellers. So sometimes, when I’m amongst them all, I often think of to myself…I feel a little bit of a fraud here.
I’m actually a total scaredy cat about going out into the big bad world but I passionately believe in the benefits of it. Travel feels like my religion, because just the thought of doing it, makes me deliriously happy. It’s my dream because it fills me with fear, yet I know it will do me the world of good.

But I’m really not that that well travelled. I haven’t been to that many places and in all honesty, I blame the USA for that. I was completely besotted with that big beast Continue reading →
Reading my title you may be turning your nose up thinking ‘there are 5 reasons why you need a life coach?!’ Yes, really there are!
Having a ‘coach’ is one of those things that just seems a little bit lavish, but that is because they really are a treat to have. We all sometimes need that extra bit of help with big decisions and life changes, so I, personally, cannot recommend coaching enough. I’ve been working with Coach Jennie, the NYC-based badass herself, for 4 months now and it’s been completely life-changing.
I’m the kinda gal that just needs saving from my own brain sometimes, you know, your own-worst enemy kinda thing. And talking to an impartial person, who knows how to get you to ignore all of that and how to push you towards your dreamy goals, is just all kinds of awesome. Are you looking to live a truly audacious Life? Then there is no doubt Continue reading →

It’s been a while since I mentioned a destination closer to home, and as I spent so many holidays here as a child, I thought it was about time to gave you a rundown of those must see sights in Tenerife.
Tenerife Emma? Really? Well yeah to be honest! It’s a great little country! It is a very touristy destination, as we all know, but you can still get away from the crowds on the beach to indulge in a little culture if you so choose. Remember it’s up to you guys to make your holidays into what you want them to be.
So if you’re off on a tour of the Canary Islands soon, don’t forget to add these must see sights in Tenerife to your ‘to do’ list, they’re the perfect mix of culture and fun in my opinion:
