Well there we have it, we’re officially in Twixmas 2021. This is the first year I’ve heard the term but I somehow knew exactly what it meant: the period after Christmas and before New Year’s. A time to relax, blur the days and dates and just be. I’ve been chilling in my Christmas loungewear and slippers watching Selling Tampa on Netflix. Loving every minute.

It’s uncertain what January 2022 will bring in terms of more restrictions (or not) so I thought it might be helpful to share a few fun things to do at home that don’t involve binge watching Netflix or napping. Over the past two years I’ve tried a few different meal kits, activities etc in an attempt to make the weekends feel like an actual break before walking over to my chair again to start the week. Hope these suggestions are helpful and let me know what you plan to try or have already tried!

While the time to go is not right now, I want to share my birthday trip to Amsterdam last October. It was a quick 48 hour trip but so enjoyable.

It’s been a little over a month since I returned from two weeks in Tuscany. The food, weather and company was perfect. I’ve always loved Italian food, and as a vegetarian I also know that there’s enough options for me to indulge in. Between the cappuccinos, vino, pasta and gelato, there really were no bad days.

I very recently posted about my day trip to Paris as it’s one of my favourite cities to visit. Every time is different, and this time I went with my sister to celebrate her birthday. We visited Paris a few times when we were younger so the tourist bits were all done. The plan was to roam different neighbourhoods, eating and drinking whatever we fancied.

Because Paris is always a good idea, I spent my birthday this year catching the Eurostar for a day trip to the city of Love. I’ve been to Paris a few times and still love it. I really can’t pinpoint why, but the architecture, spotting the Eiffel tower and eating pain au chocolats to my heart’s content makes it a really fun time, every time.

I only spent four days in Copenhagen but felt that was enough. It’s a quirky place with locals looking effortlessly chic, and lots of hip coffee shops. We walked everywhere, often hitting 10,000 steps before 2pm. View Post

This trip was so nice, so scenic, and just amazing. We flew from London to Marseille, rented a car and drove down to the French Riviera. View Post
