I love Harry Potter.

There aren’t many things that I believe in, in which I am not willing accept other opinions about. With the exception of Harry Potter. I was one of those kids that would spend hours laying awake wondering if maybe, just maybe, all of this magic stuff was true. And maybe,

just maybe,

my letter from Hogwarts would arrive at my door. Or through my window via owl.

Well, my letter never arrived. Continue Reading


Yesterday I had the unbearable task of saying goodbye to two of the most precious things in my life at the moment. As they would say, a double whammy of sorts.

Firstly, and most importantly, I said goodbye to my closest friend here in London. My partner in crime. The avocado to my gluten free toast.

You get it.

London will not be the same without her.

Secondly, I said goodbye to dairy.

I can almost feel the eye rolls through my computer screen. As some of you know, I have been gluten-free for over 3 years now. It has been one of the healthiest choices for me, although not really a choice at all. I have an intolerance for gluten and therefore do not eat products containing it. I also believe I have a sensitivity to lactose. I am no doctor {even if I live vicariously through the doctors on Grey’s Anatomy and feel like I basically am part of the team}. But I figured I would exclude dairy from my diet for two weeks, and see if I feel any better. Or a difference at all.

Making it official on my blog is the only way I will follow through and avoid chocolate. I will follow up in two weeks time with an update that I’m almost positive no one will care about.

Missing Sarah already and beginning the mourning process for all things delicious.


Oh Big Ben, the man of the hour {see what I did there}.

Such an iconic piece of architechure in London and one of the most photographed buildings in the world. I was lucky enough to have another beautiful, brisk afternoon when I wandered over to Westminster. You cannot photograph this area enough. I ended up with some pretty amazing shots that I continue to gaze at on the cloudier days here in the UK.

As I am sure we have all been told at some point in our lives, you find yourself when you travel on your own. It is something I can attest to and now tell others about.

Similarly, when you travel with someone, you tend to find out how compatible you are. Whether you are traveling with a friend, a boyfriend, or almost a complete stranger, there are so many tests you will be put through to find out how the two {or many of you} work together.

You gon’ learn today!

So here it is, the long awaited for post about the bad and the ugly during my trip to Indonesia.

Since this is an entire post dedicated to the negative aspects of my trip, please feel free to ignore the words and instead enjoy the beautiful photos of Gili Air if you prefer. The least I can do in such a buzz kill of a post is include dreamy pictures to go along side them.

Let’s begin shall we? Continue Reading
