How I Plan My Travels

Spreadsheets and polypockets aren’t the most glamorous of things, but when I’m heading off on a two week adventure there’s nothing I love more than planning out our trip. Obviously we first pick a destination; change our mind a few times.. then finally decide where we’re going to head off to.  For a trip two weeks or over we like to book ahead at least 9 months in advance. Next it’s flights.  I’m a fan of British Airways for long…

“Follow Your Dreams” and Dream Jobs

It’s so easy to tell people to follow their dreams, and I guess it’s “easy” enough for some people to follow them.  But what if you don’t know what your dreams are? I know what I want to do on my bucket list.  Clearly – it’s online for everyone to see.  But still Monday-Friday I go into a job that pays for my house, travels, bills etc but doesn’t leave me happy or satisfied. As I type this post up…

Learning Special FX Make up ?>

Learning Special FX Make up

As someone who doesn’t wear make up on a daily basis, I’m pretty useless with a mascara and couldn’t tell you what bronzer looks like.  I have the tiniest make up bag for special occasions (weddings, work nights out) but have a whole suitcase full of face paints and special fx make up. I’ve been practicing a little bit this year but will continue to do so, and hope to pick up some great prosthetics and make up on our…

Last week I took part in G.I.S.H.W.H.E.S – The Greatest International Scavenger Hunt the World Has Ever Seen. As a team of 15 you have one week to complete as many tasks as you can (some totally ridiculous) – to spread fun, laughter, kindness and ridiculousness. is a 7-time Guinness World Record breaking scavenger hunt hosted by Misha Collins that you can compete in from anywhere in the world (even from your own home!).. Thousands of participants from more than…

A Weekend in Amsterdam ?>

A Weekend in Amsterdam

Instead of birthday presents, cake etc for my 28th birthday, I decided to go on a weekend break to Amsterdam with David.

We started out with an Escape room at Escape World ; An Alice in Wonderland theme room which was far too complicated for the two of us, but…

Aging like a fine wine (and wizard school)

Yesterday was my 28th birthday.  For some reason I’ve always had it in my head 28 was going to be a good year.  It’s never bothered me getting older, but maybe because I’m happier, more confident and good things are happening in my life.  My sister shared this photo on my Facebook yesterday.  Which shows even as a little kid I didn’t know what I wanted in my life.  Did I want to be princess Jasmin or an old lady?…
