    7 Things to know before going to The Sky Garden, London

    7 Things to know before going to The Sky Garden, London

    Sky Garden is the highest public garden in London and it’s completely free!

    Based at 20 Fenchurch Street, Sky Garden has 360 degree views of London and includes several different restaurants and bars.

    The Sky Garden has had some pretty mixed reviews since it first opened in 2015, with some people being left disappointed. For me it was a great experience of seeing views of London I have never seen before and for free!

    1.    Book in advance

    Bookings open up 3 weeks before on their website, so if you want a prime time then you have to be quick. I would highly recommend going at sunset (obvs).

    Gift Guide for Fitness & Gym Lovers

    gift guide for gym lovers

    On my way to and from work I walk past a local gym and was (still am) struggling with mental health and thought why not! I’m not going to lie, it took me a good few months to get in the swing of things and I did not have a clue what I was doing or how to use any of the machines. 2019 is the year i got into fitness.

    So here we are a gift guide for the beginners, the no so beginners and the gym buffs.

    Technology

    For me when I’m at the gym, whether I be in a mood ‘just get it done mode’ or ‘I don’t feel comfortable mode’ my headphones are a god send. Especially if they are wireless, there is nothing worse than running on a treadmill or lifting weights the wire gets in the way.

    Of course the AirPods are probably the most fashionable ones but there are other good ones out there such the Sony overhead ones and if you wanted in ear ones the 1More Bluetooth ones are also great.

    Another great piece of tech equipment’s are tripods. Even if you’re not an instagrammer or blogger but filming yourself whilst working out just to make sure your form is correct if a great way to helping you along your journey.

    48 Hours in Pengenffordd, Brecon Beacons

    When you live in the hustle and bustle of city life it’s so nice to get away from it all for a few days and forget about all the crap adult life brings so here’s is how we spent 48 hours in Pengenfford, Brecon Beacons. My boyfriend and I decided to have a little weekend getaway to Brecon beacons. Trawling through Airbnb as you do, we came across the Hobbit House. As both of us are avid fans of LOTR we thought, hell yeah! So if you are a fan of Lord of the Rings and always wanted to see/stay in a hobbit house, then this is for you. Although if you have in your mind it will be like Bag End, the home to Bilbo Baggins with a huge wooden fireplace and round door frames then you will be disappointed. Read more
