Exploring | A Guide to Amsterdam

For the past few days I have been in chilly Amsterdam with my family for a short city break, very short actually; we went on Wednesday and came back on Friday! After an amazing whirlwind (or should that be snowstorm!) trip I thought what better to do than to write a blog post all about what we got up to. Firstly, so you guys can find out all the hotspots and places not to miss in Amsterdam if you are planning a trip (if you aren't you soon will be!) and secondly to act as an amazing  record of all of the beautiful places that my family & I visited together to look back on in years to come. Let's get exploring!

Monday is certainly a day that gets a lot of stick and I can totally understand why, but what if I told you that there were a few little tricks to help you make Mondays great again.

Sunday Vibes Playlist

Sunday is one of my favourite days of the week. I have always thought of it as a day that everyone is able to be completely chilled out and totally themselves. My favourite way to enjoy a Sunday is to spend time doing something that I love with the people that I love, even if that is just relaxing with our favourite magazines. I know that a lot of people still use Sundays as a real family day and I think that is great - it is so nice that there is one day in the week that is just that bit more chilled out than the rest. It's pretty good isn't it? However you like to spend your Sunday, it is about to get even better. Today I thought I'd share some relaxed, feel good tunes to make that great day into the perfect one. Let's get listening!

9 Wardrobe Staples & Why I Love Black Clothes

Wardrobe staples are something that I had never really thought about until the other day I read a post all about how to create a capsule wardrobe. Despite the fact I love the idea of a capsule wardrobe, in reality that level of control & minimalism just isn't me. However, despite not being convinced to take on the ultimate challenge, I did pick up a few really great tips from this post that have helped me to streamline my wardrobe. Yes! The main tip was to work out what your go-to wardrobe items are and why you love them, so that when you invest in new pieces they will be things that you are going to wear over and over - rather than just a load of seasonal junk. From doing exactly that, I feel like I have got a real sense of my wardrobe stripped down to its basics and today I am going to share with you my newly discovered wardrobe staples.
