Bournemouth’s restaurant scene could, until pretty recently, only be described as stale. We’ve had the same restaurants for years and it’s been a long time since there’s been anything exciting going on. In fact, that was one of the main things I was worried about when we started to talk about moving back here, because we love eating out so much! Over the last couple of months we’ve seen a fair few new eateries pop up, but it wasn’t til it was announced that Bournemouth was getting a Côte Brasserie that I was excited!
If you follow me over on Instagram (which er, hello, you should) you’ll know that back at the beginning of the month I spent three days in Ibiza with Enterprise on a road trip with some other blogging babes! In fact, you’d be forgiven for thinking I was still there, since I took so many photos! Anyway, the lovely lot over at Enterprise invited us to the island so we could find out why having a hire car can be great, and it certainly didn’t disappoint!
It happens to the best of us, one minute you’re sipping Tesco value vodka mixed into 17p lemonade in your friends back garden, the next you’re eating cheese and watching Grand Designs, whilst letting a bottle of Malbec breathe on the kitchen worktop.
You’ve blinked and all of a sudden you’re not a teenager anymore, you’re a real live adult that has a job, responsibilities, bills and all that fun stuff.
Here are the warning signs that you might just be a real, live, walking and talking adult.
Trust me, I know how easy it is to get to Friday and realise you never made it to the gym, or in fact, anywhere other than work and home. Sometimes the week runs away with us and we get so caught up in our to do lists that we forget to make time for ourselves. Moving a little everyday is SO important, you don’t need to do a full on work out to feel the benefits, so today I’m sharing three easy ways you can move more everyday.
When I was younger I was TERRIFIED of flying, so I always wanted an early morning flight to get it out of the way. I would be too nervous to eat before flying, so a night flight was the worst because it would be an entire day of me starving myself. Fast forward to today and I actually quite enjoy flying, and if I can I always pick an early morning flight. I like to get the travel part of a day started ASAP, it’s not like you can achieve much in the morning before a flight, and the sooner you leave the sooner you can start your holiday! I know not everyone feels the same though, so here’s my comprehensive guide – how to survive an early morning flight.
Despite having a pretty hefty beauty product collection, I’m a creature of habit and I tend to consistently reach for the same products over and over. You could say I’m pretty good at getting myself stuck in a makeup rut, so I like to make a habit of sorting out my makeup drawers on the regular and having a product reshuffle in the hopes it’ll make me reach for a few different things. I did this recently and rediscovered a few old favourites…
Packing beauty products for a trip is never easy. There’s the risk of spills and shattering, the trials and tribulations of the 100ml 20×20 bag, and the worry that you’re going to forget something desperately important. I travel a fair bit for work, and whilst splitting my time between London and Bournemouth got pretty good at packing, so I thought I’d share a few beauty packing tips that will hopefully make the process a little easier for you on your next trip.
I love a Sunday pamper party as much as the next person, but sometimes my schedule just doesn’t lend itself to an afternoon spent luxuriating in the bath and a full at home facial-mani-pedi routine. I like feeling refreshed and ready for the week ahead though, so I’ve developed a recipe for a speedy Sunday pamper routine which leaves me feeling relaxed + ready for the week ahead, but takes me all of about half an hour.
