A Lazy Weekend in Amsterdam: Film Diaries


  To celebrate our 21st birthday’s, myself and my boyfriend decided to go to Amsterdam. We wanted a present to remember, so what better place to go than a winter break to this beautiful city. The flights were relatively cheap, at about £80 return each (in November). Flights to Amsterdam tend to be cheaper, as it’s so close to the UK, but around Christmas, the…

Corsica: Exploring The Island


This is going to be more of a ‘quick-fire – what to do in Corsica?’ and ‘how to make the most of my time on the island’ kind of post. Corsica, as far as I’m concerned, isn’t receiving the [for want of a better word] hype it deserves. The Mediterranean French island is a stunner; with something for everyone. As you drive down the island (which is…

Milan: Travelling On A Student Budget


Aah Milan…such a picturesque, stylish, charming city. It’s clear why this is the fashion capital of the world! Left, right and centre there are incredibly swanky people walking around in their Balenciaga trainers, branded T-shirts, amazingly posh sunglasses, carrying huge Chanel bags…it’s a great place to grab a coffee, take a seat and people watch.

A Guide to Exploring Bali On A Budget


Christmas in Bali…the most bougie, unusual, but amazing, tropical Christmas ever! Ok ok, getting to Bali isn’t very budget friendly so this post is slightly cheating. However, it’s a bucket list destination and once you get over the hurdle of getting there you don’t have to spend much money at all. We were on the island during December (obviously), so the weather was incredible –…

Truck Festival: The Low Down


Truck Festival is growing year by year and is now known as the UK’s Largest ‘small’ Festival, The Godfather of Small Festivals; which I would completely agree with!

The site itself was pretty small; the main camping…
