A modern guide to Old Guatemala.

I can’t believe it’s taken me over a year since returning from our epic trip around Guatemala to begin compiling content from it!  Truth be told, the start to 2022 wasn’t quite what I’d envisioned; being quarantined for 10 days in an ensuite bedroom with my boyfriend, having tested positive for Covid (while not experiencing many symptoms) and having to rearrange our flights home to a fortnight later. When we eventually touched down on UK soil it was all stations

Memories of Marrakech.

Marrakech has been on my list of places to visit for what feels like a lifetime. Long before my first trip to Morocco, where I visited Rabat and Casablanca in the North, and my second visiting Tangiers and Asilah, I knew one day I was destined to wander the winding dusty red-tinted alleys of the jewel of Morocco – and in early February, I finally did!

But I’ve whittled down my absolute faves here and, whilst this list will no doubt evolve and expand over

Down at the Quays.

So, this guide has been a long time coming. I moved to Salford Quays almost 18 months ago now (where has the time gone??!) and those of you who follow me on Instagram will know that I frequently post shots of my glorious surroundings on my feed – it truly is a wonderfully photogenic place.   I’ve finally gotten myself in gear and have rounded up a few of my favourite things to see and do – both at the

Great Danes.

Last week I was in Copenhagen for#ScandiDesignTour2017, hosted by two wonderful Danish heritage brands: Fredericia and Georg Jensen. I have a ton of photos to edit from my trip but in the meantime I thought it would be fun to round up a few of my favourite showrooms from what is arguably the Design Capital Of The World, in case you’re headed to the city soon and are in need of inspiration.. Fredericia Of course, I have to start with
