KOMODO – Miami restaurant

KOMODO is an Asian restaurant located in the beautiful Brickell Avenue, Downtown Miami. My friends and I had dinner here, and being my first time there, I was fascinated by the stylish décor and swanky vibe that this place had to offer.

The restaurant is spread across three levels that has indoor and outdoor seating. The lighting was perfect against the dark wood, dimmed low with shades of red and orange which gave the South East Asian warm feel, yet we were dining under palm trees which mixed in the Florida atmosphere so well.

Miami food spot: Sagrado pastry and coffee shop.

I stumbled across this breakfast/brunch spot the other day and was delighted by how delicious it was. Just doors away from where I am staying in Biscayne, Miami is this artisanal gem. Continue reading Miami food spot: Sagrado pastry and coffee shop.


I was lucky enough to visit this tiny Island in the Philippines. I booked this months in advance and during the half term as I was still teaching at the time. If I had known then that I would have more time off, I would have booked for longer than nine days! I would have travelled all around the Philippines – I loved it.
My sister and I flew from London Heathrow, directly into Manila which took 14 hours. We stayed there one night and flew into Caticlan the next morning which took only 50 minutes. Continue reading Boracay


My friends and I booked a trip to Berlin way in advance (I am always last-minute to book my trips) and I actually forgot we were going until a week before flying. As we booked a group booking, there was no confirmation in my inbox, so it was sort of a pleasant surprise when I remembered. (Similar to finding a £20 in an old handbag that you forgot about).

We flew with Ryanair and sadly, we all had separated seats, as part of their money making ways. They entice people to pay extra costs to chose their seats. The flight from Luton airport took roughly two hours, and we flew directly into Berlin. Not bad


We stayed in the area called Albrechtstraße. The nearest station which was a five-minute walk from us was Friedrichstraße, in the Mitte district of Berlin. We booked the apartment on and the price and location was excellent. It’s easy to get to popular attractions such as Unter den Linden boulevard, the Brandenburg Gate and the Reichstag by tube.
I must add that the bed was the most comfortable I’ve ever slept in! We did most of our travelling around via tube, it is super easy and cost-effective (we paid nothing as there are no gates, however ticket machines are there just in case). The App called Citymapper is great to use to show you the different routes you can take, including walking. Continue reading BERLIN


The wonderful Holland. My friends and I planned a trip to Amsterdam at the beginning of December to celebrate one of their birthdays. We had an amazing time whilst travelling, as usual creating new memories. We  sung our lungs out, we laughed until we felt six packs and we drank like we were at a freshers event. Heres my guide to Amsterdam. Continue reading Amsterdam!

My life coaching experience

So today I had my first ever life coach session and I would like to share it with you guys. At first I was feeling uncomfortable, thinking I don’t need therapy. But it was honestly so beneficial. The first thing we done was some meditation followed by an assessment of where I am in life, mentally.

I have always been spiritual and believe in positive mental attitudes and the law of attraction. But today I looked deeply within myself and have put the pieces together. Continue reading My life coaching experience
