Travel vs. Career – do you have to choose?

This is a question I ask myself a hell of a lot. Do I try and excel in my career, climb that ladder and earn enough to lead as comfortable life as I can? Or pack my bags, book that ticket so I can explore the world some more before I feel the tick tock of my body telling me to settle down and act on my maternal instincts?

A weekend in Burnham on Sea, Somerset

If you’ve read any of my past travel posts by now, you’ll know I LOVE a girly holiday. When we knew our lovely Emma was returning for a few weeks from New Zealand, we arranged a cheapy weekend away in sunny Somerset. We chose a caravan holiday because a) they’re so fun! and b) I get a discount through work for our great Haven sites all around the country.  Continue reading

A weekend in Brighton

Another month has gone by and we’re now in June! Not sure how that happened, but my month started in the best way with a spontaneous trip to Brighton for the weekend with Danny who I met on the Kiwi Bus in New Zealand way back at the end of 2016! Over 19 months later, we reunited and made the trip down to the coast and had such a fun weekend exploring what this vibrant place had to offer Continue reading

It’s been 3 days since the bank holiday weekend and I’m still thinking of the food festival me and Lucy went to at Blenheim Palace on Monday. No, we’re not the ‘getting-drunk-in-the-club’ types. We love food. FREE food. So this bank holiday, we were our true foodie selves and hit the freebies at the festival, all in the beautiful setting of Blenheim Palace.

A week at the Riu Guanacaste – Costa Rica

After our week of adventure touring the gorgeous Costa Rica, it was time for some R&R at the Riu Guanacaste, in Playa Matapolo. For starters, we were upgraded to a family room with side sea view which was beautiful. I’ve never been to such a big hotel before. It has over 700 rooms, 3 inter-connected pools, 5 a la carte restaurants and 5 bars, including a 24 hours sports bar.  Continue reading

The Importance of Prioritising Yourself

Have you ever felt that you’re being pulled in all different directions and find it difficult to handle? That’s been me these past few days and I wanted to do a nice little post about prioritising yourself because after all – you can’t pour from an empty cup.

A Girly Weekend in Suffolk

Life has got in the way of my blog lately, I’ve been very busy, my mind has been distracted and I’ve found it hard to conjure up enough positivity to write some good content for the Positiff Blog. However, a long weekend with my best friends has reignited my want to share the good with you all and there is nothing like a prosecco-fuelled life discussion in a hot tub to get my brain back in the game!
