Pula, Croatia (Activities guide included)

Pula, Croatia (Activities guide included)

Any time i mentioned the destination i would be travelling to- “Croatia”, people would receive it in bewilderment. Wh-wh-what!? Croatia? What an odd choice! Odd if you consider mainstream holiday destinations the only destinations worth travelling to, yes. However, not odd if you’ve got an explorers heart and want to experience something new…at a budget....
Wedding Photography

Wedding Photography

It’s been so long, i’ve almost forgotten how to navigate my way around WordPress. Oops. Today’s post is dedicated to rekindling my love for photography; a new camera to play with, alongside an approaching family wedding presented the perfect opportunity for just this. I spent the days prior to the wedding watching youtube videos on...
My Trip to Wales

My Trip to Wales

Although this is fairly overdue, I thought it would be nice to share some of the memories from my trip on the blog. During the half term holidays, I had the pleasure of visiting the beautiful and serene city of Swansea, in Wales. I was graced by crisp fresh-smelling air, scenic ocean views and acres...
My Wedding Day

My Wedding Day

For months I have been counting down the weeks and days till i would finally be a married woman, free to experience the world without bounds with my then fiance (and now, husband). Meticulously reviewing, developing and refining all the major and minor details of my wedding on a weekly basis. The day finally arrived...
Roman Holiday

Roman Holiday

The day following my wedding, I and my husband embarked on our first journey together to the city of Rome. He had warned me of the heat beforehand, but I was not prepared for the physical exhaustion that this would lead to. After more than half an hour out in the heat, i would feel too...
Holland Park

Holland Park

Most Londoners i know always complain about there being no places to go out to. It’s partly true; London can seem bland in comparison to the outdoor activities other countries have to offer. When it comes to choices, the Londoner may feel limited to the typical tourist attractions in Central, the commercial luxuries of Oxford Circus,...
Tourist

Tourist

I was told i wouldn’t have much of a social life upon embarking on my teacher training(that’s kinda true)- however, i still manage to find the time to do a little bit of exploring about the city when i can. Despite having lived in London for close to 18 years, there is still much to...
Wedding Season

Wedding Season

Well, it’s not exactly “wedding season” any more as we now enter September. This post is a little late but considering i start my Teacher training tomorrow, and have a gruelling and busy year ahead-i figured i better post it quick! Though, i really do hope this doesn’t mean i will be forced to end...
My trip to Dubai

My trip to Dubai

I had’nt been abroad for nearing 5 years, so the prospect that i’d finally get to experience it with my family again gave me a source of motivation for this summer. My parents had been raving on about the country for years now and i thought it was about time that us as their children...
Squires Garden Centre

Squires Garden Centre

I did post about this amazing place on my facebook page and instagram, but i was determined for another visit that would call for pictures of it in all it’s glory. I only ever visited this place once very many years ago and completely forgot about it’s existence until a little google search for garden...
Past Photography Work

Past Photography Work

Everyone calls themselves a photographer nowadays you know, so i wont even go there. EL-oH-el. Lets just say i ENJOY photographing as an artistic outlet. I even set up a photography page showcasing my work (and trying to lure in customers) a couple of years back, but that was a fail. I just happened to...

Wow. So it’s been exactly 18 months since my first ever post on here, and pretty much a 1 year ago since my last post on Smoky not Smudgy.  If you want to refresh your memory about this event, you can see last year’s post about it here.  Just to give you a quick recap,...
