Washington DC: Monuments by Night Tour with Urban Adventures


There’s something about experiencing Washington D.C. after sunset. The moonlight makes it feel almost like you have been transported back in time. Washington D.C. is a city I have always associated with one of my favourite films, National Treasure. Because of this association a vital part of visiting D.C. for me was seeing and experiencing the iconic monuments and landmarks. We visited Washington D.C. in July too so a night tour is ideal to take advantage of cool evenings.

The Grand Canyon West - A Once in a Lifetime Trip with Big Horn Wild West Tours



It’s great to escape the craziness of Las Vegas for a day and experience some culture. It would be simply crazy to travel from as far as Europe and not visit the Grand Canyon. Now the logistics of it, the Grand Canyon is quite a distance from Las Vegas and certainly deserves a full day trip.

San Francisco City Guide


San Francisco was the first stop on our American Adventure. And surprisingly it felt quite European to me, almost like a Californian Lisbon. One important thing to remember is that every neighbourhood in San Francisco is completely different and has a contrasting vibe – from cute Victorian houses in Haight Ashbury to the colourful Castro.

Union Square Hideaway - The Clift Royal Sonesta Hotel San Francisco


My best friend, Heather and I had the pleasure of being guests at The Clift Royal Sonesta Hotel during our time in San Francisco.  The Clift Royal is a contemporary luxury hotel with roomy quirky guestrooms and suites. This landmark hotel has the wow factor when you enter the reception and then again when you open the door to your room.

San Francisco Extranomical Tours


With such a short amount of time in San Francisco we were determined to see the most we could. I always find the best way to do this is to take a tour. It takes the stress out of the process – you don’t have to worry about navigating the local public transport system and finding sites etc. Extranomical Tours are the go to company for tours in San Francisco. They run every kind of tour imaginable from Yosemite Day tours, Napa and Sonoma Valley Wine tours and City Tours. We chose to take a city tour in order to maximise our time in the city.

Asos Summer Sale Picks

I love ASOS. But it's like a vortex, I find it hard work to sort through the overwhelming amount of stock to find the real gems. ASOS launched their Summer Sale yesterday so I have decided to share my top picks. 

Happy Shopping!

Dolce&Gabbana Hydrangea Dress Look4Less

Florals are a given for Spring but it's not often my favourite flowers, Hydrangeas make an appearance. Seriously though, could you get a more Spring appropriate print? Dolce&Gabbana have done it again! This dress is insanely beautiful but I don't think over €3500 for a statement dress can ever really be justified.

The Valentine's Gifts to Buy Yourself

Because Galentine's > Valentine's, right. Valentine's Day shouldn't just be restricted to honoring the love you have for other people, this year why not celebrate yourself! I've rounded up some pretty gifts that will brighten up your Winter:


An Overpriced Rose Candle

Let's be real, the same price as an overpriced bouquet but it'll last way longer! And you can never have enough candles, that's just a fact of life.

Acne Canada Scarf Look4Less

The Acne Canada scarf as to be one of the most instagramed accessories of 2017. In the realm of designer scarves the Canada scarf is very well priced at 160 considering it is 100% lambswool. One of the best things about this scarf is its width, making it the same size as a large blanket scarf. The Acne Canada scarf comes in almost every colour imaginable, my personal favourites being the pale pink and the grey melange.

Réalisation Par Dress Look4Less

Réalisation Par has become an 'IT girl' label in the past year with their dresses being worn by supermodels and bloggers alike. Perhaps the reason the dresses have become so popular is their incredibly flattering fit. After all Diane Von Fursenberg build an empire on the wrap dress. While I'm all about the investment piece and these dresses are pure silk, in this case I'd much prefer a poly alternative that doesn't need to be dry cleaned and can be stuffed into a carry-on.
