The Best Accessory for a Budget Flight

One of my favourite things about flying is that I get to watch films. Ever since I was little when we went on family holidays to Menorca, back in the day when about 4 rows of seats used to share one TV that emerged from the overhead baggage, this was my favourite part of the flight. My mum still asks 'what films did you watch?' as a priority when we get back from holiday!

But in recent years budget airlines have taken over and we've become more savvy when it comes to saving on travel costs. The problem with budget airlines is that all of the fun of watching films is taken away, don't get me wrong, I'd much rather save hundreds of pounds by travelling with a budget airline but it does make me a little bit sad that I don't have the excitement of getting to choose a film to keep me occupied.

A Picnic in Lightoaks Park

There are many things in life that signify when you're an adult and I've made quite a few grown up purchases in the past year; I've bought my first house, got my first car and I've even considered making my own curtains. But perhaps the most grown up thing I own is a picnic basket. 

No more shoving everything in bags for life and managing to forget things like plates, knives and a bottle opener, as the magical picnic basket has all of those essentials already taken care of. Even wine glasses, win.

Five Last Minute Father's Day Gifts (for Dads you don't see that much)

Father's Day is one of those national days I actually look forward to (not quite as much as National Gin Day of course), as it's an excuse to actually see my Dad. I'm not a model daughter and tend to let life get in the way of catching up with my Dad so I need a valid excuse to get away from work and life to make the effort to see him. I enjoy seeing him so much it's silly we don't see each other more often!

We're both really busy and don't live that close to each other so we rarely meet up just because. I can't be the only one who rarely sees their Dad but wants to change that so I've put together a few ideas for last minute Father's Day gifts that focus on spending quality time together so you can make that time count.

72 Hours in Montreal: A City Guide

It's been a couple of weeks since we got back from our trip to Canada, it feels like so much longer ago though so I thought it was the perfect time to look back over the photos I took and put together a a few city guides for the places we travelled to.

Our trip started in Montreal so it seemed only fitting to kick off with this city guide first. My best friend Ash moved to Montreal just over 4 years ago so she was the ideal guide, taking us to lots of little places she's discovered over the years that we would never have found if we were normal tourists. We spent around four full days in Montreal during the two weeks we were in Canada but I've picked out my favourite bits and bobs (mostly food of course) to show you around in case you want to experience Montreal like a local.

A Tour of Our Bedroom

It's been six months (six months!) since we moved into our new home and I'll be honest, we haven't done as much to it as we would have liked to. Life has kind of got in the way and before we knew it, this house has been ours for half a year, madness. 

But even though we haven't done a huge amount of work on the house, it's more than enough to make it ours. This week has been a pretty good one for progress though, we've now got a fully fledged bed in the spare room ready for visitors this weekend and finally found the perfect chair for the bay window in our bedroom. So I thought I'd give you a little tour of our bedroom as it is at the moment, it's nowhere near finished but it's getting there, one pink velvet chair at a time...
