10 things you could do when you’re bored!


I hope you’re doing well! As I am stuck in lockdown like most of the world I though it may be useful to share things that I do to keep busy when you’re stuck inside! Feel free to write in the comment with more ideas for others!

1. Start a new hobby! Or maybe it’s something you used to love and you didn’t have enough time to keep it up? I’ve seen a lot of people on TikTok making their own clothes which I feel quite inspired by, so this is something I want to try this year. This is a great chance to do something you’ve always wanted to try out! Other ideas are sports, yoga or photography.

2. Learn a new language! I have been learning Spanish on Duolingo and it’s been so much fun! I definitely recommend and it’s also free.

3. Exercise! Follow the Instagram live workouts and try and get motivated as the hard work will pay off. Go on a bike ride or even a very long walk as it’ll waste a lot time. Use the couch to 5K app and start running. Plan to run the same time as your friend as that could help you get motivated.

4. Get in the kitchen! Grab the ingredients and bake a cake for you and your family. Although it can be time consuming, the end result is always worth it! I have baked things during lockdown that I’ve always wanted to try so this is the perfect opportunity to try something new.

5. Read a book. Luckily I had a stash of books waiting to be read before lockdown happened so I was fully equipped! This has been the main thing I have been doing during this time and I’ve been loving it as I hadn’t had anytime before lockdown to do this.

6. Have a virtual quiz or play bingo with friends or family via a group video chat. You can use Facebook, zoom or other softwares to do this. Grab an alcoholic beverage and pretend you’re altogether. I have been doing this once/twice a week which has been great fun.

7. Binge a TV series or watch films you’ve always wanted to watch. This is the perfect chance to catch up on TV and discuss your recommendations with your friends.

8. Have a pamper day. Look after yourself and make yourself feel good! Paint your nails, put on a face mask and just relax! Do this with a family member if you can as it’ll make it more fun. Massages and facials are always a winner!

9. Download the app TikTok. I have spent a lot of time on this app without realising! It is great for wasting time that’s for sure. Learn a TikTok dance and post it if you’re feeling brave!

10. Colouring. You may have an adult colouring book but if not then you can just use plain paper and colouring pens to make pretty patterns. this is so relaxing and therapeutic and just makes you feel like a kid again!

Hope you feel inspired! Let me know what you’ve been doing when you’re feeling bored!

Half Cup | King’s Cross

Hello guys!

So I recently visited Half Cup in King’s Cross for the 2nd time for brunch and thought I would share my thoughts. In short, you NEED to visit this place for brunch! You will probably have to queue outside as it’s very popular but sooo worth it!

The first time I went here I was with my friend Hannah and we both had the savoury pancakes with cheese, Parma ham and a fried egg on top. It tasted amazing and was extremely filling. I also had a cappuccino which was nice. The brunch menu is very reasonably priced and the portions sizes are spot on. The interior was very pretty too!

The second time I visited (yesterday) I ordered the Oreo French toast with espresso mascarpone with berries which is absolutely delicious! It was very filling and looked so pretty!

Just look!!!

I give this cafe a 9/10!

Amsterdam Travel Guide


Last year I visited Amsterdam for the first time and I absolutely fell in love with the area. Here are some things touristy things to not miss out on! I also loved just wondering around the small streets and canals and admiring the beautiful houses.


First tip: Stay in a hotel that is close to everything! We stayed in the Mecure Amsterdam centre canal district. This hotel was basic but suited all our needs.

Visit the Sex Museum – It’s just a bit of a laugh really and a must when in Dam. You need a photo next to the huge plastic penis, of course!


Stop for Lunch at Cafe Proust – This was a small local cafe which we found and had some delicious toasted sandwiches. We sat outside even though it was raining as it had a shelter.


Visit a plant shop! – This one was called Wildernes and was absolutely adorable!


Have dinner at Thrill Grill – The interior of this place was very cool and was very quiet and not touristy at all. They had some great burgers though.


Go to Kanarie Club – This place is amazing! It’s tucked away looking like an old warehouse but in actual fact it’s a huge quirky bar and restaurant. The cocktails were also amazing!


Go to Corner Bakery for Breakfast/Brunch – This place is a big hit with the locals and was very busy. I had scrambled eggs and it was delicious. My friend has pancakes which also looked great.

Visit Anne Frank’s House museum – This was one of my favourite things from the Amsterdam trip as it was so emotional and heart- warming learning all about Anne Frank and her life. The audio guide was really good and I would honestly urge everyone to visit this place. Just a heads up, pre book tickets or wait in the queue for hours.

Hire a bike and ride it around Vondelpark – This was soooo much fun! We hired our bikes from Mac Bikes and they were cheap and easy and no hassle. This was another favourite part of the trip for me.


Take a photo with the IAmsterdam Sign! – You just have too really. Everyone does.


Have a pancake from the Happy Pig – I got a little bit peckish so I stopped to try a pancake which was very good!


Go for a canal ride – This was very fun and we learnt more about Amsterdam. It was lovely to just see all the pretty houses.

Go to Pluk for breakfast – Oh my these pancakes were so dreamy! Pluk sell delicious food and the interior is also gorgeous.


Grab a cocktail from Lion Noir – My cocktail was called Alice in Wonderland it would be rude of me not to have that one! It was a divine cocktail and it was lovely drinking it outside. We even got chatting to some locals.


Visit the Banksy Exhibition – This was a fun thing to do and was the last thing we did before we headed home. I would recommend going here.


That’s all for my travel guide, I hope you love Amsterdam as much as me!

Gail’s Brunch | St Albans

Hey guys,

Once again I am back to share my brunch story! I have finally visited a Gail’s cafe and oh my it was worth the wait! I loved this cute, small cafe/bakery. I had scrambled eggs, bacon and a cappuccino. The food was absolutely delicious and my friends were jealous of my food when they saw it (even though theirs looked great too). I just love how sweet it was and you can tell it’s where all the locals hang out! I can’t wait to return!

Doesn’t it just look amazing!

Dishoom brunch | Carnaby Street


So very recently I tried Dishoom for their famous brunch! And oh my what can I say! The interior of this place was magical and transported me to India! The staff were all so friendly and helpful too! My friends and I sat on the comfy sofas and I decided to have a bacon naan and a cappuccino. Dishoom are known for their quirky naan dishes. My bacon naan was so yummy, it had spicy ketchup in and the naan was so fluffy. The prices were so cheap and reasonable too. I would most definitely return after this lovely experience!

Hope you enjoyed reading!

Peak District, UK

Hey guys!

Recently I went on a trip to the Peak District which was absolutely stunning! I went there to climb the rocks (which I did) but I also went on walks to explore the hills. It was very cold and windy but I loved it. Here are some photos!

Hope you liked the photos.

Brown & Rosie Cafe | London

Hey guys!

I noticed a couple of people like my post about the cafe review so I thought I’d post another. If you haven’t seen my last post it was about the cafe Bluebelles of Portobello in Notting Hill which is definitely worth a visit!

Brown & Rosie cafe is situated in Kensington, London. It’s super easy to get to on the tube as well! I went here for brunch and a coffee and it was gorgeous! The interior design was so lovely and house goals!! I had scrambled eggs on sourdough toast to eat (this is my favourite!) which was so yummy. The price was very reasonable too and was also a lovely place to catch up with friends.

Hope you enjoyed reading this and liked the photos!

Bluebelles of Portobello Cafe | London

Hello lovely people!

I recently went to Notting Hill in London for Brunch to catch up with my friend and discovered this gem! This super cute cafe is a perfect spot for brunch and a cappuccino. It is located in a great spot in Notting Hill and a short walk from the tube station.

I had a cappuccino to drink and scrambled eggs on toast with a sausage to eat. The food and coffee were amazing and the food really filled me up and also gave me loads of energy which I needed for the day. The prices are very reasonable and the staff there were so friendly and helpful and it shocked us both how much they made us feel welcome. I would 100% return here and would recommend to everyone!




Thanks for reading!

Truck Festival 2017 Experience!


Sorry for the lack of posts on this blog, I know this is always my excuse but I have been super busy and to be honest lost motivation for this. However I have a lot of new ideas to write about so hopefully i’ll be writing posts more!

So, I love festivals. The feeling you get when you’re dancing to your favourite band on stage playing live is a feeling like no other, I’m sure you’ll agree! I absolutely love the atmosphere of festivals and the freedom. The first weekend festival I attended was Reading in 2016. So this year I thought I’d give another festival a go and I’m so glad I did!


I attended Truck Festival for the weekend in July 2017. As expected the atmosphere was amazing and I saw some fantastic acts such as The Night Cafe, The Vaccines, The Magic Gang and Sundara Karma.  The weekend was great however it was a shame that it rained pretty much the whole time so I hardly got any sleep as my tent got soaked. The wellies definitely came into good use as it was super muddy!


I was actually pleasantly surprised with portaloo situation as they seemed to get cleaned so they were bearable. Compared to Reading festival where the toilets were AWFUL in the campsite.



I highly recommend this small festival as it was such a good experience and super cheap so I’d go again!
