Visiting Berlin On A Budget

Brandenburg Gate, Berlin
Brandenburg Gate

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. 

Whatever time of year you're looking at visiting Berlin, money is always important, so if your purse strings are going to be a bit on the tight side for this trip, then I've written down some tips and tricks on how to visit this beautiful city and stay on budget. 

Obviously, this depends on how long you'll be visiting Berlin for- seeing as our trip was a short one, this will probably be relevant if you're going for a similar time length. Even if you're going for longer, however, you might find some points in this post that help you too.

Spring Gift Guide for Her

Spring Gift Guide for Her

AD - contains gifted items, affiliate links and brands I have collaborated with before

Apologies for the radio silence from me over the past week. If you don't see my social media posts, I've been stuck in bed with a tummy bug, which let me tell you- hasn't been fun. 

Accompanying this came a dizzy head which meant I haven't been able to focus on looking at my phone or laptop. It's been hell, but it's forced me into a digital detox of sorts. I'm still a little dizzy, but there's only so much daytime TV a girl can take before she feels like she's going to burst. 

So here I am, Monday afternoon, the day after Mother's Day. This post was supposed to be up way before that deadline but sometimes life doesn't go to plan (secretly hating on the person who gave me this bug). 

Instead of letting this half-finished post go to waste, I decided to convert it into a general gift guide for spring, as I know there are plenty of people, mum's included, who also have birthdays around Mother's Day but don't particularly want something that screams "I bought this at the same time I bought your Mother's Day gift."

Like in all my other gift guides, I've put together a round-up of ideas mainly covering beauty but also featuring a couple of lifestyle options too if the person you're buying for can't face seeing another beauty gift set again. 

As always, I'm super thankful to any of the brands or PR's who have sent over products for this gift guide!
