Why I love having a dog

I’ve only really mentioned him briefly on my blog previously, but a little over a year ago, we got a beagle called Toby and brought him home and into our family. Having a dog absolutely changes your world and it’s an incredible responsibility – I think Toby equals the same amount of work as what […]

Porro Wellfield Road

Despite its popularity and rave reviews from other food bloggers in Cardiff, I will hold my hands up in shame to admit that I had not visited Porro Cardiff until last week. Despite my clear love for Italian food and restaurants alike, Porro has been one of those restaurants that has eluded me and I’d […]

The Roman Holiday

Last week, I returned to Italy for a holiday to Rome with my boyfriend, Lloyd. But if you follow me on Instagram, you’ll probably already know this and will have noticed me spamming a little – I would say sorry for that but I’m not really. I initially visited Rome when I was about six […]

The Roman Food Tour

When I plan a trip anywhere, food is usually one of my first major considerations. I start to wonder what the main dishes are in my city of choice and what the best restaurants are. This year, food was one of the key factors in helping me pick the destination of Rome, although the city […]

Instagram pods: to stay or go?

  Let’s be honest, since the change to the Instagram algorithm, your engagement will either have skyrocketed further than you could have ever imagined, or it will have been completely shot to shit. I’m guessing for many if you’re reading this, it will be the latter. For this reason, we’ve seen a rise of Instagram […]

Pro Nails

Pro Nails Wales Event

I always feel more put together when my nails are done. For some time, my nails have been quite naturally long in length and are always painted. In fact, my friends and family seem to find it quite strange when they’re not and I tend to feel almost naked without it. So given my love […]

Revolution Cardiff Relaunches

If you live in Cardiff, or close-by or even if you were a student based in Cardiff once upon a time, I’m positive that Revolution Cardiff is or was one of your go-to places for a night out. For me, I originally started visiting Revs in my first year of University and most Wednesdays, my […]

Keeping up my fitness motivation

In January, I wrote about ‘the harsh realities of getting fit again’ when I first introduced exercise back into my daily routine. Since then, I’ve been working really hard to make sure that every week I’m either running, doing HIIT or going for a walk. But after a few month of exercise, it’s safe to […]

The Hashery Cardiff

The Hashery Cardiff

As a Cardiff foodie, of course I have my favourite restaurants that I will return to again and again. But I also love trying new places on the Cardiff food scene and this weekend, I visited the recently opened Hashery on St Mary’s street. Just a few short steps away from Cardiff castle, the Hashery […]

Adventure Rooms Cardiff

As you all know, I’m always looking for something fun to do in my home city of Cardiff because I like a challenge and I never like to feel bored. I mean, who does? Life’s too short for that. This is why I was super excited when I was invited to Adventure Rooms to try […]
