South of France with Princess Cruises

May 29, 2017

Hey there,

Last week I visited Marseille and Toulon in the South of France with Princess Cruises. The Princess Royal Cruise ship was docked in the Toulon port, and we experienced a day trip, just as the Princess passengers would. We visited the quaint town of Cassis for lunch, enjoyed wine tasting in two vineyards and indulged in a very French meal on the Toulon port.

We visited the Ship on Friday morning, and let me tell you, it was huge!!! With 17 luxurious floors, the ship holds up to 3,500 guests. We visited the pool deck, the spa, the theatre, the gelato shop, the gym and of course we had to eat in the amazing Italian restaurant: Alfredo’s. My last blog post included some shots taken on the boat, you can also see the whole ship in my video, linked below.  Continue Reading…

Snap Happy in Toulon

May 28, 2017

Hey everyone,

If you follow me on Instagram, you will know that I’m just back from two days in the South of France with Princess Cruises. It was such a fun few days exploring vineyards, tasting all things French and touring the amazing Royal Princess Cruise ship (where I took these photos) I vlogged the trip and can’t wait to show you every inch of this beautiful boat on my YouTube, hopefully I’ll have that video up tomorrow.

As usual when I go away, I got a million and one photos 🙂 One of the questions I get asked most often is what camera I use to take my photos, and what apps I use to edit them. For a long time I only used my Olympus Pen EPL-7 camera when taking photos (and I have used it on this post for some of the photos). But thankfully I have found a phone with a camera just as good as my actual camera, it’s small, easy to carry and has made my life so much easier – the Samsung S8. Continue Reading…

Positano Travel Diary

April 19, 2017

Hey guys,

Last weekend I travelled with Gerard to literally the one place I’ve ever been that I would describe as heaven on earth. It was the prettiest, most relaxing place with the nicest people and yummiest food (Pizza all day errday!)

It was exactly the kind of holiday I love. The village is still so authentically Italian, there is so much to look at and take in. I could have wandered the streets all day and night (if there wasn’t so many steps haha).  

Where we stayed

I’ve had so many questions about the stunning hotel we stayed in, it was Casa Albertina in Positano. I booked on Hotwire.com – I’ve been using Hotwire for years but this has to be my best hotel find to date. LOOK at those views!!! It felt like something out of a movie.

Pink Dress in Positano

April 17, 2017

Hey everyone,

I got back from Positano yesterday, and I’m going to make a bold statement and say it was my favourite place I’ve EVER visited.

The buildings, the weather, the people, the food, the vibe, the flowers… it was just like heaven on earth. I can see why so many people go on their honeymoons there – it’s so romantic!  Continue Reading…

Sunrise in the Dubai Desert

April 3, 2017


Hey guys,

Back to work and reality, but my mind is still living in Dubai. I wanted to share one last blog post with you and some photos of probably one of the coolest places I’ve ever been to – deserted roads in the middle of the Dubai desert at sunrise.

We set off to the middle of the desert at 5am to catch this beautiful moment – an early start is not something I can be found doing very often on holidays, but it was so worth it. These roads were originally built with the intentions of leading to a compound, but they ended up never being used, and they are slowly but surely being washed away by the desert. You can get a better idea of what they look like hereContinue Reading…

Dubai Travel Diary – Part II

April 2, 2017

Hey there,

I’m just back from Dubai – and what an amazing week it was. It’s definitely somewhere to add your bucket list if it’s not there already. March was such a nice time to travel, it felt like the middle of summer at 25 – 33 degrees most days. I’m not sure I’d be able to deal with anything much hotter than that. It gets as hot as 50 degrees there in summer!!! How do people survive over there?!

We had the perfect balance of activities/ downtime which made it just such a fun and relaxing holiday. There’s so much to do over there I don’t think you could ever get it all done in one holiday. There is no shortage of amazing places to see, restaurants to try and of course sun to take in. We made a list of what we really wanted to do, making sure we made time to chill too – it was our holidays after all 🙂 If you read my Dubai Part I blog post you’ll know what we got up to from Saturday – Tuesday, and now I’m going to fill you in on the second part of our week, including a list of recommendations that we didn’t get around to trying this time!

Where we stayed 

We moved hotels to the W Hotel in Al Habtoor City for our last few nights. This hotel was super modern with quirky, bright interiors and a young crowd – it was a nice change from our last hotel. The pool area was to die for – and the food was just amazing. I’m going to be starving for a month after this trip, trying to get back to normal eating habits will definitely be a struggle.

Where we ate Continue Reading…
