About

MY BLOGGING PLEDGE
I will always post quality over quantity.

I LOVE TO...
travel... at home (UK) and abroad.

eat... I try to be healthy, but then I eat out... and chocolate is my best friend.

write about my life, my favourites, plus books, art, life lessons, etc.

think about how my dream home would look.
