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

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

Breaking My Blog Silence On Sexual Assault: #Metoo

Good evening my lovelies, Tonight I’ve been flicking through my social media accounts cheering on every strong woman I’ve seen with #metoo as their status. Some have written stories about their experience whilst others have left nothing more than these two incredibly powerful words. What exactly is the me too movement? I never actually thought I’d end up writing about a topic like this on here as its my happy space that I get to keep protected from horrible memories.Read 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.

You could’a been born a bloke which is equally badass. My kinda feminism isn’t about shoutingRead more

How To Actually Find Really Unique Things To Do In London

The English language is like London: proudly barbaric yet deeply civilised, too, common yet royal, vulgar yet processional, sacred yet profane – Stephen Fry. If we’re being honest then London is a pretty bloody great City isn’t it? You can do something different every night of the week for a year and still not run out of new places to go and new things to do. For a travel blogger I’m pretty bad at getting out and going to newRead more
