As I’m sure you’ve all gathered now, there’s nothing more I love than being in the great outdoors. Living in Northumberland, we are spoilt for choice for countryside. One place that has been on my list for some time now has been Hareshaw Linn, another waterfall to add to the list.

Hareshaw Linn is an enchanting waterfall situated in the beautiful village of Bellingham. Bellingham is nestled on the banks of the North Tyne and is...

We recently moved into our new home and in return received many a bottle of champagne as a moving in presents… my friends and family know me all too well! If you follow me on social media you’ll know I’m a huge advocate for supporting local businesses so when one of my girls brought me one of her Whiff Boxes as a moving in present I just had to share it with you all.

So, what is a Scentsy by Alice Whiff Box I hear you say? Scen...

Being the tender age of only 12 years old when Harry Potter and The Philosopher’s Stone hit the big screen, both the films and the books has played quite a big part in my life. Being a muggle, I’ve always been fascination by all things witch craft and wizardry so when an owl landed at my desk in the studio (yeah, I wish) to invite my family and I to Linden Hall to experience their Harry Potter Package I just couldn’t contain m...

DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel is an internationally recognised brand so when I was contacted for a gifted stay at the hotel, naturally, I accepted. Double Tree by Hilton Hotel Newcastle International Airport is situated adjacent to Newcastle International Airport and is approximately 7 miles from Newcastle City Centre.

We decided to coincide our trip with our 3 year wedding anniversary as the hotel, also, kindly gifted us drinks a...

Newcastle City Centre is bursting at the seams with culture, heritage and the beautiful River Tyne with its abundance of bridges. With entertainment for all ages, cultural attractions, picturesque parks and the coast only a short drive or tube journey away – Newcastle is the perfect destination for a weekend away.

You’ll be spoilt for choice for hotels in Newcastle City Centre but if you’re after something a little bit differen...

It’s week two of the Summer holidays (I think, I don’t even know where I am right now… send help in the form of a bottle of prosecco please), you’ve done pretty much everything on your “keep the kids entertained” list and your bank account has taken a bashing. Don’t get me wrong, it’s amazing spending all this time with my child but, boy oh boy, is it hard work trying to keep a 5 year old busy, who needs a routine and just doe...

It is no secret that I love food, so when Thaikhun contacted me to ask if my son and I wanted to give their Summer menu a try at Intu Metro Centre, naturally, I jumped at the chance. Thaikhun, pronounced tycoon, is the North East’s very own slice of Thailand located at Intu Metro Centre.  Specialising in Thai street food, diners can expect an authentic and interactive casual dining experience with open kitchens and traditional...

When you hear the name Greece, it likely conjures up images of the white sand beaches of Crete, the stone pillars of the Acropolis in Athens, or the whitewashed buildings of Santorini. But, there are over 6,000 islands in this Mediterranean archipelago to choose from, and Zakynthos is a small hidden gem amongst them. I’ve been coming to Zakynthos for 3 years now and is has quickly became one of my favourite Islands in Greece,...

If you’re looking for something to do with your little ones this Easter holidays or just fancy a walk off the beaten track, I highly recommend a walk around The Simonside Hills. The Simonside Hills are a fabulous place for walkers with miles of footpaths taking you through woodland and moorland to wonderful viewpoints that stand tall over the picturesque village of Rothbury. There are few routes to choose from including a fami...

Last year, I seemed to spend lots of time in Europe… between Paris, Berlin, Portugal and Greece I seemed to forget just what beauty we have right here in the UK so I made my 2019 New Year’s resolution to explore more of what the UK has to offer. Don’t get me wrong though I’m still booked up to visit Paris and Greece again a few times this year but you know I can’t resist those places.

The two main destinations I want to make mo...
