New York City, USA

Welcome to New York #1

I’ve officially started my nine week trip across America and Canada. On Tuesday, I flew from Manchester Airport to New York JFK to embark on my crazy solo trip. I can’t believe I actually made it across the Atlantic and WITHOUT any tears! I arrived in New York late afternoon and got a taxi into Manhattan. I’m staying at The Jane Hotel in Greenwich Village which is such a cute little affordable hotel. The lobby is literally JUST like the Tower of Terror at Disney. The rooms are very cosy but overall, it’s an amazing price for New York. I’ll…

Channeling Audrey Hepburn

It’s been a while since my last blog post, hasn’t it? I’ve been super busy finalising plans for my big American Trip which is now 10 days away! There’s still so much to plan and book but plans seem to be slowly falling into place. Today, I thought I would finally post about one of my favourite additions from Closet London.

Luckily, Marco Polo Guides have come to the rescue and I’ve been reading up on some of the destinations I’ll be visiting and getting a better idea of where I want to go and what to see. If you’ve not heard about my trip before, I’m spending the first three weeks on a coast…

Disneyland Paris

Hotel Cheyenne, Disneyland Paris

My annual pass to Disneyland Paris has now officially expired, sad times! I do, however, have so much Disneyland Paris content coming up. In the next couple of months, I’ll also be visiting Disneyland California and Walt Disney World! My last trip to Disneyland Paris was in May for the 25th Anniversary and it was actually the first time we booked to stay in a Disney resort using our Annual Pass. With our Annual Passes, we were able to ring up and book an amazing deal at the Hotel Cheyenne using the AP discount. I had actually previously stayed at…

Unique Wedding Gift Ideas with UncommonGoods

Whether it’s a Birthday, Anniversary or a Wedding, purchasing the perfect present can be a hard task. I recently came across a US-based website called UncommonGoods which has a selection of great gifts. As you can probably guess from the website’s name, it’s home to many unique items. They have a large selection of wedding gifts including personalised items which you can check out here for the happy couple or even Bridesmaid’s and Groomsmen. I love the personalised touch when it comes to wedding gifts. Getting the newly married couple something with their names on is a great idea. I love…
