So....



Darlings, as some of you may have noticed, I took a little break from blogging. Due to a few recent events, the main one being the end of my relationship after 7 years, I really felt like I needed to step back and take a look at where my life was going and where I wanted it to go. Anyway, even though it seemed like a crazy idea and I had to dip into some savings,  I decided that the time just seemed right to take a trip this year.

So, from this Friday I will be off on a two month long trip. I will be visiting the United Kingdom, Paris, New York City, Florida and Los Angeles.

While away I plan to visit some of my faraway friends, deal with some difficult feelings, see some amazing places and have a mini 'Eat, Pray, Love' sort of adventure (though it would probably be more accurate to call mine 'Drink, Laugh, Hug' . hehe). 

I plan to blog, instagram and tweet about my trip (feel free to follow me to keep up to date).

  3. Sending loads of love and happy wishes. A couple of years ago my relationship ended - also after seven years. It was difficult to say the least and I had to move countries etc, but it gets better and you move on. And...now I am the happiest gal ever with a husband who is just right, all worked out. Seven is now my lucky number. Enjoy your time away! x

  37. Sorry to hear about the end of your relationship. Breakups are really tough. But traveling, for me, has always proven to be a great way to clear my mind and reflect on my life goals. I just spent a month in the south of France, and it was a life altering experience. Enjoy Paris! If you get a chance, go to Nice and check out the little towns and villages along the Cote d'Azur. My favourite place in the world.

    Cheers, and chin up!
