My Dream Holiday Destinations

With all this moving to France and reading everyone else's blogs about their exciting summer holidays the wanderlust bug has definitely bit me.  

Plus it doesn't help that I have recently re-discovered the Wanderlust website which tempts me to run away!  

So I thought I would put together a list of my dream holiday destinations, what do you think of my list?

In no particular order....

Afternoon Tea on a Budget at Brodies in Moffat, South West Scotland

You might have spotted on Instagram that last week I went for afternoon tea with my Mum, we are both BIG fans of afternoon tea so like to treat ourselves now and then.

My Favourite Apps

I recently entered the brilliant Iphone world after hanging on to my old Samsung as long as possible.  However with my contract being up soon and moving to France I thought I would get an unlocked iphone so I can stay in touch with people a little bit easier. 

Now I have one it's basically amazing and I love it so I thought I would share with you my favourite apps on it.

Home Made Foot Soak

Summer has really taken its toll on my feet.  It's my own fault really, when the sun comes out my shoes come off!  I like to stroll about the place bare foot and when I do put shoes on they are usually flip flops or sandals so my feet get pretty exposed to the elements. 

I finally decided this week that my feet needed some TLC so a foot soak was in order.  I thought it would share it with you if you fancied giving it a go let me know how it turns out!

What you need: 
- Tub 
- Hot water
- 2 tbsp of honey - so many good ones at Holland & Barrett here.
- 2 cups of sweet almond oil - I use this one and love it.  Remember Holland & Barrett always have crazy deals on so stock up on things where you can get them for a penny!
- 1 tbsp of sea salt 
- 1 tbsp of black pepper
- Moisturiser - I use this Burts Bees hand cream for feet stuff!
- Cotton socks
- Pumice stone

A Maze-ing

I hope you appreciate the title of this post, I'm pretty much a comic genius.  

This summer Matty and I have been bitten by the maze bug, I mean it, we've been to about five or six different local mazes.  Yes, bit of a crazy maze phase in this house!

I thought I would show you around one of my favourite ones - Carnfunnock Park in Northern Ireland.  I have done a few looks up there before, you might have seen it here and here!
