Wondering What To Read Next?

My Experience of Online Dating with POF.

Match.com, eHarmony and Tinder have been playing cupid in relationships since 1995, that could be a new catchphrase (I'm just making sure I get my rights!). I bet you didn't think that they've been around this long? I read some statistics that around 1 in 5 relationships now begins onli…

As mentioned in most of my blog posts in recent days I took a trip to Northern Ireland over the New Year, I cannot explain how good it is to go away whilst experiencing a 'burn out' to re-energize and collect your thoughts about the year that's just passed.

Northern Ireland was a complete dream.

It was so nice to have something new to experience everyday, whether that was a Ulster fry up or seeing something in a new city. It has completely reborn my wanderlust for travelling and there's so many places I'd like to visit over the next couple of years (there's a blog post in there somewhere!)

I had plan to do separate posts based on things that I got up but that's overly time consuming for me and so I thought I would put together some photos from the week and then keep the rest for myself. I did manage to get my 'thing' on with Instagram and tempted to be more creative with that social media platform but there's a few images I took that I hope you'll like and I'll leave some little captions below them for you all to enjoy, so please do enjoy!

2016 Goals

It's the 6th January 2016, a door has opened on another year full of new challenges and opportunities. Like most people we've started to create our goals and resolutions for the year ahead, hoping we can make them last more than a month or a few weeks.

I've just returned from a well needed break in Northern Ireland with my boyfriend and his friends and family for the New Year. I feel refreshed, inspired and motivated for the year ahead, in particularly with this blog. However I miss the consumption of soda bread and Tayto crisps to say the least! (You don't know what us English folk are missing!)
