Getting back into the whole work/gym/adult routine but my mind is still stuck in holiday mode!  I might need to book another big trip, but I would love some holiday inspiration. Where are you off to next and why?

Birthday countdown begins

In less than three weeks I will be celebrating my 29th birthday in one of my favourite places in the world.
