Recently A and I had an event to attend in London, so I had a little look (twenty-five times – I’m a little bit addicted) on the HotelTonight app to see if I could find any amazing deals for the night we were there, thus justifying spending a night in London and having an extra day to do fun stuff. I was very happy to find the beautiful Threadneedles Hotel at a bargain price of £119 for one night, and I… View Post

When was the last time you went on holiday? We all deserve some time off in order to rest, recuperate and recharge. In fact, there is a reason why we are given a set amount of holiday leave per year.

I absolutely love Spain and… View Post

When we were thinking about where to go for our honeymoon we obviously considered where would be a good place to take our daughter as well as where we wanted to go.
