  • Blogger Book Nook #4: Christmas

    December 19, 2017 Hels

    Book in hand, hot chocolate (or mulled wine) on the side and mince pies within reach… I’m SO excited for the Christmas break! I love curling up on the sofa under a blanket, watching Christmas films and doing lots of reading, and I’ve been making a huge effort to read lots to Dougie as well, which is really special. This year we’re heading to my family home in Leicester for Christmas Day and I can’t wait. This month, Blogger Book…

    This year has been full of special dates; we celebrated Dougie’s first birthday, it was our five-year anniversary and we got married earlier this month.

When you walk into our home, you’ll see that it’s filled with photos and prints. We have photos of our travels around the world, prints from the Wildlife Photography Exhibition which we’ve…

  • Our Mexican honeymoon

    December 2, 2017 Hels

    Two days after our wedding, Sam and I flew to Cancun in Mexico. From there, we headed to Playa del Carmen where we were going to spend the next two weeks, relaxing, exploring and just enjoying each others company – as husband and wife! Dougie was going to spend the first week with Sam’s family, and the second week with mine, so we knew he would be well looked after – and spoilt rotten of course! Sam and I uhm-ed…

Obviously most of this month revolved around the wedding and honeymoon, so this is going to be quite a soppy monthly round-up I’m sure! Here are some of my favourite moments from this month…

  • Top things to do in Playa del Carmen

    November 22, 2017 Hels

    As some of you may know, I’ve just come back from a Doug-less honeymoon – two weeks in Playa del Carmen, a coastal town in Mexico… The area has beautiful beaches, plenty of shops, bars and restaurants and a lot of places to explore. The area itself is pretty touristy, though I’ve read it’s not as busy as areas like Cancun (yet) but that means that a lot of the tours and experiences are pretty pricey. We didn’t have a…
