Why am I am Self-Sabotaging?


Hey Guys,

I really enjoy practicing self-care. Like taking a day at home to have a long shower, followed by a spot of pampering. In fact, as I type this post, I am sat in front of the tv in a dressing gown, following a "stay-at-home" day. My face is smothered in a coffee scrub face mask and my hair is wrapped up in a hot oil treatment. I gave myself a much-needed pedicure last night and had my best friend over to watch a girly film and eat Japanese food. You'd think that I'd feel on cloud nine after such a wonderful 24 hours...
But I don't, and I'm not sure why.

Instagram Guide to...Cologne!


Hey Guys,

Today, I have another Instagram/photography inspired post to inspire your travelling plans. This time, based in Cologne, Germany! You may notice from these shots, that the weather wasn't the best, so do excuse the cloudy skies, but I hope you have luck with the weather should you find yourself in Cologne!

25hours Hotel: The Circle, Cologne


Hey Guys,

It's been a little while since I last went away on a city break. After Paris and Amsterdam last summer, I was ready to get back on the Eurostar for another adventure! 
I last visited Germany in 2014, when I spent a few days in Berlin with a friend. This time, it was Cologne I would be visiting; home of the Hohenzollern Bridge, K├Âlner Dom and Wonder Waffles! I had such a wonderful stay at 25hours Hotel Paris, that it seemed like the natural place to call home whilst in Cologne. 
Our first night was kindly gifted in exchange for this blog post, however, we paid press rate for the final two nights.
