48 Hours in Auckland

When we arrived in New Zealand two years ago, we found ourselves emerging bleary-eyed from Auckland airport at about 5am. We had 48 hours planned in this wonderful city, and so despite the long haul flight, as soon as we got to our Airbnb we had a 2-hour nap and then ventured out into the city to soak up as much as we could. 

I think our nap was so short because we were both too excited - we had just flown halfway around the world to a brand new country, and we couldn't wait to get out and explore. 

Many people fly either into Auckland and Christchurch, so if you find yourself in either of these two cities when you arrive in New Zealand then definitely put aside a couple of days to get your bearings, have an explore and get over your jetlag. 

If you need an idea of how much you'll be spending while in New Zealand then I've done a full budget break down here, but for reference £1 = just under New Zealand $2, so just be aware that things can get a bit pricey in case you're travelling on a budget. However, there is such a huge variety of things to do in Auckland for different budgets that you won't run out of things to do.

Father's Day Gift Ideas

Father's Day Gift Ideas


Contains gifted items and affiliate links

Shopping for men can always be hard for us ladies, and I find it especially hard to shop for my dad! Dads always seem to have such specific tastes, and normally I find myself picking up something for him only to find out from my mum that he's already got it!

This year, however, I've been looking a little more into potential gifts (other than socks) and when you look hard enough you can find some amazing original gifts for all different types of Dads. 

As always, a huge thank you to all the brands and PR's who sent me these products for this gift guide!

Top Spring Beauty Releases

Top Spring Beauty Releases


Contains gifted items and affiliate links

As we slowly get into the warmer months and sunnier days (I'm not completely convinced yet as today we had a load of thunderstorms), I always start to cast my eye to the internet on the lookout for new releases or new products to try. 

I've been trying out a load of products since the start of spring and have collected a couple of favourites that I couldn't wait to tell you about. 

Last year, I did a similar post to this completely dedicated to makeup I'd been trying, but this time I thought I'd hand-pick some of my faves from across the board, including skincare, makeup and some haircare. 

These have all very kindly been gifted to me but as always, my honest opinions are all my own.

Visiting Berlin On A Budget

Brandenburg Gate, Berlin

Last Christmas, I spent a wonderful five days exploring Berlin, making my way around the traditional markets, wandering through the museums and eating my body weight in currywurst. 

Berlin is definitely a magical place to be around Christmas time, with all the lights and little huts selling all sorts of goods from gingerbread to little nutcrackers, but I also know people who have visited during the warmer months and said it's also a great time to visit.
