Visiting Bath Abbey: From The Ground To The Top

I have developed an unusual love for visiting abbeys, cathedrals and churches when I’m travelling somewhere new. I think it is a mixture between the colourful windows, the extremely high ceilings and wanting to sing Tale As Old As Time from Beauty and the Beast. Anyone else?

Bath Abbey is no exception.

It was the very first tourist attraction on my to-see list when the Mr and I planned our second year anniversary to the beautiful city. Even though we only stayed in Bath for one night, we gave ourselves plenty of time to explore and see the main attractions as well as hunting down all those Instagram locations.

We were very kindly gifted press passes from Visit Bath in collaboration with the tourist board and it has been an absolute pleasure working with them. This is the last of my posts from our trip last month and I’ve really enjoyed reliving our experiences of our short time in the spectacular city.

What I Learnt About Posting Daily On Instagram For A Week

I have a love – hate relationship with Instagram.

I spend a lot of time on the app: posting, replying to comments, liking the photos on my feed, watching stories and using the explore page for inspiration and to find new accounts.

As much as I love the app, it is frustrating when photos don’t do as well as you’d hoped and your followers are up and down like a yo-yo. Even though I don’t want to focus on the number of likes, I thought it would be quite interesting to see how many I receive within a certain length of time.

So I set myself on a little challenge: posting daily for a week.

Every Breath by Nicholas Sparks

Blurb:

Hope Anderson is at a crossroads. At thirty-six, she’s been dating her boyfriend, an orthopaedic surgeon, for six years. With no wedding plans in sight and her father recently diagnosed with ALS, she decides to use a week at her family’s cottage in Sunset Beach, North Carolina, to ready the house for sale and mull over some difficult decisions about her future. Tru Walls has never visited North Carolina but is summoned to Sunset Beach by a letter from a man claiming to be his father. A safari guide, born and raised in Zimbabwe, Tru hopes to unravel some of the mysteries surrounding his mother’ early life and recapture memories lost with her death. When the two strangers cross paths, their connection is as electric as it is unfathomable, but in the immersive days that follow, their feelings for each other will give way to choices that pit family duty and personal happiness against each other in devastating ways.

The Dress To Wear When Running Out The Door

It is very rare that I throw an piece of clothing on before dashing out for an hour or so, but then again, I don’t exactly plan my outfits in advance unless it’s something special.

With that being said, I have found a particular new aspect of my wardrobe which is the best to wear when I’m heading out for dinner with the Mr or needing to grab a few food essentials from ASDA. It’s comfortable, it’s practical but most importantly..

IT HAS POCKETS.

A Morning At The Roman Baths

We were only in Bath for 24 hours but during the short time that we were there, we managed to fit in a handful of tourist attractions and the main one on my list was The Roman Baths.Β The well-preserved Roman site which was opened in 1897 to the public is available to visit from 9am on a daily basis and it is a must see for when you’re visiting.

This post is written in collaboration with Visit Bath who provided us with press passes for our time in the beautiful city.

Why Scheduling Works For My Blog

When you have a blog, there is two sides to scheduling: getting content written in advance as well as having many tweets to promote your posts and social media.

It takes time out of your day, it really does.

During a recent Blogosphere Chat, questions were asked about scheduling and from my answers came several questions from fellow bloggers and I thought it would make a somewhat interesting blog post.

Scheduling to some may seem like a lot of work and I won’t sugar coat it: it is but I enjoy doing it and as someone who is passionate about marketing, I know it’s great for my blog in the long run. I’m going to make this post as straight forward as I can but if you have any questions, feel free to ask!

So buckle up and learn about how about I make scheduling a priority for my blog.

Exploring The Eden Project

Since March 2001, the Eden Project have opened their doors to the public to welcome them into the realistic rainforest temperatures, the beautiful plants, the rich smell of the coffee beans as well as the delicious, freshly made restaurant food.

While we were in St Austell for our second year anniversary, we decided to visit the spectacular domes of the Eden Project and despite not being fans of plants, gardens, trees – we had an amazing day walking around and taking it all in.

The Eden Project very kindly gifted us two day passes in exchange for today’s blog post. Prepare yourselves for a lot of photos..

My Obsession With Linen Trousers

I have had a strong love for linen trousers for a solid three years now.

I have three pairs – two from Primark and one from F&F Clothing (who have recently gone offline and are now in-store only so no links!).

Before we went to Crete, I purchased a pair of deep blue floral tile print beach linen trousers and I just can’t stop wearing them. Granted, we had an insane heat wave throughout June and July but linen trousers are perfect for those cooler days when denim shorts just aren’t an option.
