    Mostar And Kravice Waterfall | A Day in Bosnia and Herzegovina

    Where do I even start with visiting Mostar and Kravice Waterfall in Bosnia and Herzegovina? It’s a beautiful, quite sobering and worthy day trip from Dubrovnik. Even on a cold, wet, grey day, they were special – I can only imagine how glorious they will be when the sun is shining.

    I honestly never thought that it would be possible to safely visit the Balkan Peninsula. In 1991, Bosnia and Herzegovina joined several republics of the former Yugoslavia and declared independence, which triggered a civil war that lasted four years. The Bosnian War – a long, complex, and ugly conflict that followed the fall of communism in Europe – began & finished in living memory and it never crossed my mind that it would be possible to visit the previously war-torn countryside.

    Bicester Hotel Golf and Spa | A Shopping Staycation

    One of my best recommendations for beating the winter blues is having something lovely to look forward to. For me this January, it was a cheeky overnight girls trip to the Bicester Hotel Golf & Spa. Disclosure: We were guests of Bicester Hotel Golf and Spa, all in much need of some January cheer.

    The skies were altogether grey and damp, Christmas seemed to leave with all of the good cheer and I was already sick and tired of wearing a coat even festooned with a pretty scarf. (People that know me, will know of my extensive scarf collection which usually cheers me up no end, but it just wasn’t working its usual magic.)

    If We Were Having Coffee | January Edition

    If we were having coffee, at this point it would probably be a home-brewed cup, flavoured heavily with vanilla.

    I’ve been home a lot this month – working away busily on a few future plans, getting ready to launch something a little special (keep reading for a sneak peek), planning some extensive garden works that will pay handsome dividends in summer, keeping an eye on our poorly cat (who seems to be getting a little bit better), slipping in a blog post here and there & getting very obsessed with the Syfy series The Magicians.
