Change is gonna come…

Change is gonna come…

It’s been a while since we’ve spoken and I’m sorry for that. Truth is, I’ve missed you. I could tell you that I’ve been busy or that I’ve had a serious case of writers block but it would be a lie. I’ve been ill. Again. I know, I can hear you all rolling your eyes;...

How one post about sex lead to an amazing opportunity and lessons

How one post about sex lead to an amazing opportunity and lessons

So, some time two years ago, May 28 to be precise, I wrote a post about my ‘road romances’ or ‘sexcapades’; however you want to call it and it caused quite a buzz in the blogging community because at that time, no one talked about ‘it’. Sure, we all did it and we told our...

I am The Undateable!

I am The Undateable!

I was talking to a friend the other night (and when I say friend, what I really mean is some girl I met whilst travelling that I barely ever speak to on Facebook because actually, in the real world, we have nothing in common) about general things and ‘catch ups’ when we got talking about...

This is how my acceptance speech goes…

This is how my acceptance speech goes…

“Oh wow! I’ve just won a {insert jackass company name} award!  I can’t believe it!  I mean, I know I’m inspiring, helpful and an amazing photographer but I just didn’t believe in myself until {Jackass company} sent me digital proof of it finally acknowledging how incredible I am.  It finally shows that all my hard...

Instead of looking back at 2012, I’m looking forward…

Instead of looking back at 2012, I’m looking forward…

Now, technically the title is a bit of a white lie because I will look back on 2012 a little but when you start reading about my year, you’ll realise why I’m focusing more on looking forward to 2013. You see, 2012, for me, has been the most hideous year I can remember.  Not only...

What happens when you get bloggers block

What happens when you get bloggers block

We all know what writers block is. That’s when some stiff British old man with a pipe and first generation computer has forgotten his train of thought and can’t finish his book about the new fox hunting without the fox.  But bloggers block, although new, can be similarly fatal. I’ve been suffering bloggers block for...

Why are travel bloggers so nasty towards eachother?

Why are travel bloggers so nasty towards eachother?

I’ve been wanting to write this post for quite some time but always backed away from it because I didn’t want to stir up a hornets nest but I’ve now got to the point where I literally want to smash the nest wide open regardless of whether I’m wearing protective gear or not. I am...

Why do we call ourselves solo female backpackers?

Why do we call ourselves solo female backpackers?

Are YOU a solo female backpacker? The ever-controversial Mr Peach wrote a post recently about how he really doesn’t think much of the whole ‘solo female backpacker’ label and that, basically, we’re not in the 1950s anymore so what’s the point of the label?! Well, as funny as his post was, it got me thinking.  Why...

Reclaiming My Future has had an extreme makeover!

Reclaiming My Future has had an extreme makeover!

So, after looking and feeling drab for longer than anyone should be allowed to, Toni finally stumped up the cash for my extreme make-over!  Armed with money, a list as long as my bingo-winged arms and lots of ideas, I headed over to Jen and Cheryl’s fabulous surgery – Caffeinated Designs and wow! They certainly...

Why 2011 was the year I will never forget

Why 2011 was the year I will never forget

It’s been an eye-opening year for me in so many ways. In January I joined Twitter. Well, I’d joined twitter in March the year before actually but couldn’t be bothered with it…yeah I know, I’m a dumbass. So in January I sent a tweet. Then I got a reply. Then I got some followers and...
