Hello guys! It’s been over a week since I’ve checked in with you lot, and incase you didn’t see it on my Instagram we’ve been on honeymoon! We went on a cruise around Dubai, and for this happy things post, I thought I’d tell you a bit more about it…

#1 My first ever long haul flights. Previously I’ve only ever done a 4 hour flight and it’s been quite the journey for me and flying, but I successfully did my first ever long haul flights! I honestly feel so proud of myself for coming this far, I never thought I’d be able to manage it so it feels great to conquer that battle. Plus I watched loads of stuff on the plane and ended up thinking it wasn’t too bad after all.

#2 Getting some much-needed sunshine! It’s felt like ages since I had any sunshine, so it was long awaited to sunbathe for the next week and let’s be honest, it was heavenly. Chilling out listening to music, podcasts and reading was just what I needed.



#3 Spending time on the ship. I’ve never been on a cruise before, so I literally had no idea what to expect. It was even better than I could imagine, with so much different stuff to do. Jacuzzi’s, spa, casinos, theatre and so much more. Although this isn’t to say I spent the two days at sea without feeling any seasick, I definitely don’t have sea-legs after all!

#4 Hot stone massage. On holiday, I had the best massage I’ve ever had in my 25 years. It was the perfect way to chill out and have a bit of a pamper after a long day travelling.


#5 Breakfast! The food on the ship was just up my street, lots of vegetarian breakfasts and amazing breakfast stuff. Pancakes, waffles, and fresh fruit was what I started practically every day with, and it was perfect.

#6 Exploring Dubai. We spent our last day exploring Dubai for a few hours and it was completely different than what I expected, and I liked it so much better than I thought I would. A lot more chilled than I had presumed, and definitely not as intimidating.


#7 Quality time. Life is full of distractions as I’m sure you’ll all know, so spending time together was really nice, and I can’t count how many games of cards we ended up having..

#8 Free ice-cream. The package we had on the ship meant we got a lot of benefits, one of which is free ice cream! And yes, I tried a lotttt of different flavours. When on holiday, right?

#9 Coming home. To me, there’s no better feeling than the airplane landing back on UK soil, I just love it. After such a long day travelling, it felt amazing to come home, and have a nap of course! We were so so tired, and you can’t beat your own bed.

#10 Reunited with Harvey. The most happiest thing. My harvey boy! Being reunited with him is just heaven on earth, he’s my best friend and I’m so happy we are back together again!
