Hotel Review: Shangri-La, Paris.

I've been to Paris many, many times over the years and stayed in a mix of hotels and friends' apartments whilst in the city. However it had been almost three years since I last stayed overnight in Paris, as last time I went in 2017 I did a 'one day in Paris' trip. The Shangri-La Paris had long been on my radar, mostly because I've been staying at the hotels reasonably regularly for the past twenty years (and I'm only 27, so the majority of my life), but also because it's well-known to be one of the best luxury hotels in France's capital. From start to finish our stay was everything I had dreamed of and more, and I'm so excited to tell you about our stay!

Ultimate Girls Weekend Guide to Paris.

I have visited Paris many, many times over the years, with all sorts of people. My first visit was with my first boyfriend, and I hated it. My second trip was with my girl friends, and I fell in love with it. Since that second trip I have visited Paris every year without fail, often twice a year, mainly to get my Angelina hot chocolate fix! 

Going to Paris with the girls is one of my favourite things to do, I'm pretty much guaranteed to have the best weekend eating all the food and just wandering around the city soaking up the beautiful architecture and just generally being a flâneur. And so after all these years of blogging about trips to Paris, I figured it was time to do my own ultimate guide to a girls weekend trip to the city of love! Because despite being so focused on romance and loved up couples, it really is the best city for a fun girls trip.

Baby Loss Awareness Week: My Miscarriage Story.

I've spent many months thinking about this blog post. I've thought about what I would say, how I would share my story. What parts of it I would tell and what I would keep private, a secret between me and my second unborn - never born - baby. I've written it and re-written it over and over. The drafts from the first few weeks post-miscarriage break my heart into pieces all over again when I read my thoughts and feelings and remember the raw heartbreak I was experiencing. I wrote briefly about my miscarriages a few months back, and now feel I'm in a better place to think logically and tell more of my story. Although it still hurts, it's far more numb, and I'm able to think cohesively. So, I guess this is my miscarriage story...
