On Change – I Need A New Name!

Hello, Hi! It’s been quite a while now hasn’t it? I suppose you could say my life has changed quite a lot in the last year or so and blogging has kind of sat on the back burner for a little while. Even while I was still trying to blog at times throughout this year, none of it has felt quite right and I’ve slowly come to accept that maybe I’m just not ‘From Europe and beyond’ anymore and that’sRead more

My Very Hungry Guide To Kings Cross

Growing up in Barnet always found my usual jaunts to be the likes of Camden, Leicester Square, Covent Garden etc. Kings Cross was always just a tube station that I’d see on the map, and never held any reason for me to go and spend any real time there. Fast forward to the last couple of years, and its actually become a real regular for me. Living in Welwyn Garden City, meeting up with my friends is usually here asRead more

This Is What A Day With Anxiety Feels Like

I’ll have a couple of hours of deep sleep and then wake up in a nightmare like state. What have I forgotten? Why did I say that thing I said at 10.12am to Barbara from accounts 3 weeks ago? I’m paralysed and stuck back to when I was living in hell all those years ago. Rich is next to me so my conscious knows that I’m safe, but it’s really quite hard to accept and believe it. I’m awake forRead more

Absolutely Smashing It In My New Weekend Job

I’ve been living for the weekend and holidays for quite a long time now. Working full time in the week has left me absolutely gagging for that sweet, fun weekend ahead! That was until my tax bill propped up around the corner and I realised I needed to SAVE SAVE SAVE. I decided to email a load of local venues saying something along the lines of “are you taking on any staff at present? I’m hoping to take on something casualRead more

How To Cope With Your Period When Travelling

I’m Coming To Terms With What My Broodiness Is And You Can Too!

There really is no reason for the love island picture being this cover photo, but it made me happy so I won’t apologise! I have a confession… a big, fat hideous confession. Recently I’ve been experiencing baby fever in its highest heights. All of my waking days are filled with how my day would feel better if I was pregnant, if I had a baby to love and protect and keep any kind of badness away from. But listen upRead more

Why I’m Sick Of The Tourist Vs Traveller Debate!

Earlier today I was browsing through my timeline on Facebook, as you do. All was well, people were looking happy, a baby had been born, people were posting pictures from exotic places. I saw an engagement and then suddenly I saw something that left me feeling a little miffed if I’m being honest. Some girl in one of my travel groups posted a cute little picture from Rome along with words about how she’s a traveller because she likes toRead more

My Favourite Moments of 2016

2016 hit most as the year of the big scary. It started with a Gorilla and continued making it’s way through many big dogs in the celeb world. We saw more terrorist attacks than I can remember from any year prior to this during my lifetime, the UK decided to make the shitty move of Brexiting and then Trump got voted as prez. Whilst I can see how that was in fact a really shit year. A lot of peopleRead more

Why I’m Gonna Keep Bowling Through Life “Like A Girl”

I know it’s bad; but it’s only a recent thing that I’ve been able to stand with a straight posture, my head held high, a smile on my face and declare that I am a feminist. I’m a bra a wearing, makeup experimenting feminist! Really though, being a girl is 1/2 of the best sex you could have been born as. The other 1/2? You could’a been born a bloke which is equally badass. My kinda feminism isn’t about shoutingRead more
