#IHEARTCANARIES: Heading to Tenerife & Giveaway!

In just about a week I’ll be sunning myself on the beautiful island of Tenerife. It’s one of the Canary Islands – Spanish territory off the coast of Africa. The landscape is rugged, sporting volcanoes and fishing villages alongside miles of beaches with luxury resorts. What more could you want in a getaway? The best part is the whole week I’ll be staying at an oasis with great friends, off the grid and living...

Saying Goodbye to Winter: Chamonix, France

Sprawled out on the side of the mountain, my skis were still halfway up the mountain. I had hit a nasty ice patch, went flying in the air and landed heard on my helmet. I didn’t move for a couple minutes, fearing the worst. The wind was taken out of my lungs and I certainly landed on something sharp by my ribs. What erupted was not tears, but crazy laughter as I rolled over in the snow and faced the sun. Sure it was a garbage fall and...

A Night Out in Clapham South: The Avalon

There’s nothing I can’t stand more than being stuck in the house on a rainy or overcast day. It sets the mood for the week on how I feel and how productive I can be (read: not at all). When there’s any excuse to escape and do something out of the routine on a weekday, I’m all about it. A perk about living in a busy part of South London is the plethora of choices for places to eat. I can practically feel like I’m eating my way around...

Supporting Ethical Brands in the UK: The Decathlon Scavenger Hunt

In 24 hours I was leaving to try skiing for the first time in the Alps. All my gear was in the states and I was woefully unprepared for the conditions that ay head of me in Chamonix, France. Friends in London had told me to go straight to Decathlon – I could find everything from ski jackets and thermals to gloves, hats and even sunblock there. Off I went and for under 100 pounds (crazy!) I had everything I needed for the big winter...

Time for a #TasteofCatalonia!

My awareness of wine is dismal. Although it’s slightly improved over the last decade (mostly because my budget helps me avoid the hooch) I still am stupidly new at various blends and qualities. In fact, last time I was in the Catalonia region of Spain, my then-boyfriend-now-husband and I only visited the Freixenet cava factory. While fun for new fans of the sparkling stuff, we definitely missed out on tons of other amazing wineries....
