Bruges 2017

Hey everyone!

Hope you’re well. It’s all full on at work again hence the slight absence here, but I’m back!

This weekend, my lovely friends and I went back to Bruges for our annual trip. It was more incredible than last year. You may have remembered my post last year: here. This year was slightly different. We had an amazing walk around, taking in all the sights and scenery. It was so good for the soul, honestly. We wanted to see parts we didn’t get to see last year. We were helped by our friends at a chocolate shop. (I say friends because they recognised us from 12 months ago!)

Bruges has to be one of the most beautiful cities I think I’ve ever had the privilege of visiting. The buildings, the trees, the people, all of which are incredible. The history is fascinating; something which I need to look into more.

The autumn leaves littered the streets and danced to the ground. The colours were amazing. I’m so pleased I’ve seen them when they’re crisp and crunchy, just before the rain gets them.

Other than the obligatory eating of the chocolates and the waffles, and drinking a range of examples of Belgium beer, I did buy some Christmas presents. However, I did treat myself to a gorgeous handbag and a beautiful painting. You can’t replace the feeling a place gives you, but you can keep those memories close to you by having little reminders.

So, I hope you’ve all had an amazing weekend. Make sure you’re making lots of time for yourselves to rest and recover. Memories are such treasures too.

Big love all xx

A Belgium Weekend Adventure 

Hi all,

Hope you’re all good.  

Can you believe it’s December?! I can’t. I’ve no idea where November went. I feel like I blinked and missed it. (I feel like I say that every month, let’s face it.) But, last weekend I went with a group of friends on the ferry to Belgium. I’ve never been to Bruges before. It’s just so beautiful. A day there was not long enough. The autumnal trees were also rather gorgeous! 


Despite the cloud, it was still so wonderful. I felt peaceful and calm. Sometimes we just need that space and tranquility. 


So, we went exploring, did a lot of shopping, drank some beer, went to the beer museum and mooched about the Christmas market. Bliss!


This was one of my favourite shops. It had so many beautiful Christmas things in. The window above was just stunning. I’d wish to see it again, honestly. Oh and the chocolate! Mmmm. 


This has to be one of the best weekends ever. I loved it. I will be going back. Bruges, you stole my heart. 


I hope you’ve enjoyed my photos and my little weekend adventure. I sure did! Christmas is on it’s way guys, lets do this!! 

Big love xx
