HTMW Recaps: December 2017

I normally add a quote to the beginning of each post that sums up or enhances my writing. However, I’m going to use my monthly recaps as an opportunity to sum up the month – be it the mood, the weather, my feelings… Anything really. December is all about Christmas, right? The food, the lights, the time spent with loved ones, the giving and receiving of presents, time at home, time to relax, all the alcohol… So it seems fitting…

Visiting Bath: One of my Favourite Cities in the World

Visiting Bath: One of my Favourite Cities in the World

‘As for Bath, all history went and bathed, and drank the waters there.’ – William Thackeray. One of my favourite cities in the world is actually a lot closer to home than many people may think. Bath, the beautiful spa city in Wiltshire, with its warm honey-coloured limestone architecture, has been a place I invariably return to every year or so. It’s difficult to pinpoint exactly when Bath won a spot in my heart and became one of my favourite places….

Seasonal London

Seasonal London

‘I need the seasons to live to the rhythm of rain and sun.’ – Sophie Marceau. Having lived in London for over a year now, I think it’s safe to say there are elements of the city that I enjoy in every season. Every spring, summer, autumn and winter there are seasonal offerings that bring out the best of the city and make me excited for the upcoming months. Even during winter, when the city is at its darkest and…

I normally add a quote to the beginning of each post that sums up or enhances my writing. However, I’m going to use my monthly recaps as an opportunity to sum up the month – be it the mood, the weather, my feelings… Anything really. One of my highlights this month was attending the TEDx Women’s Conference. It was so inspiring! This month’s quote is therefore from one of my favourite speakers of the day. ‘Every time we find hope,…

Two Tales from The Blue Pearl

Two Tales from The Blue Pearl

‘All great literature is one of two stories; a man goes on a journey or a stranger comes to town.’ – Leo Tolstoy. Breaking The Fast The searing heat of the day has evaporated, leaving behind warm, heavy air as dusk settles over the square. People are emerging from the shadows now that the temperatures are dropping to comfortable levels. The restaurants have remained empty all day, save a few straggling tourists, unaccustomed to the burning sun and noticeably drooping….

HTMW Recaps: October 2017

However, I’m going to use my monthly recaps as an opportunity to sum up the month – be it the mood, the weather, my feelings… Anything really. Despite a wonderful holiday and lots of fun with friends, October hasn’t been the easiest for me and I’ve had a few sleepless nights worrying about this and that. This quote just about sums up…

Postcards from Chefchaouen

Postcards from Chefchaouen

‘Blue thou art, intensely blue; Flower, whence came thy dazzling hue?’ – James Montgomery. I’ll admit it, hands up, guilty. Chefchaouen, or The Blue Pearl, is the first place that I’ve travelled to because Instagram inspired me. This stunning city in the heart of the Rif mountains is every single shade of blue that you can imagine, and I wanted a slice of the pie. So, when £50 return flights to Fes came up one random weekend in April, I…

However, I’m going to use my monthly recaps as an opportunity to sum up the month – be it the mood, the weather, my feelings… Anything really. September is my favourite month of the year, as summer fades and there’s that wonderful slide into autumn, with crunchy leaves, golden colours, hazy light and mornings with a snap in the air. So this…
