I don’t know about you, but personally, I just love a good fun fact. Useful knowledge doesn’t always stick around in my brain for long, but when it comes to random trivia, there’s always a free brain cell to store that piece of info forever. Today, I thought I’d go on a little hunt for interesting facts about cats. Here’s what I found out, in case you like fun facts as much as I do!
Last year, I was lucky to be able to visit Croatia for a summer holiday. Croatia’s beautiful landscape and architecture, as well as its affordable prices, make it a great alternative to other popular Mediterranean tourist destinations like Spain or Italy. It wasn’t my first time visiting that beautiful country, but it was my first time staying in Makarska. Today I want to take you on a virtual tour around the town.
If you live in the UK, you’ve probably seen the chain store named the Works. If you’re also an arts and crafts enthusiast, you probably know that they have a wide range of affordable supplies, and often run multibuy offers on various DIY activity kits. I recently used one of the sets I purchased a while ago – a bath bomb making kit.
If you’re looking for ideas for a day trip near London, consider visiting Brighton. The seaside town is one of the best known coastal towns in the United Kingdom, and for a good reason. It’s a perfect choice for a one day trip, with just the perfect number of must-see tourist attractions, all of them packed in the town centre. I visited Brighton in the summer and now want to take you there on a virtual trip.
When it comes to gifting, I always overthink the topic, making sure the presents I give to my nearest and dearest have a personal touch. If someone mentions a thing they desire, I note it down even if their birthday is months away. If I’m out and about, shopping, and see something unique that would make a perfect gift for someone I know, I buy it and store in my little gift stash, ready for the next occasion. And sometimes, I decide to make the presents myself.
This recipe just screams autumn. Perfectly aromatic and warming, it’s a little piece of heaven in every bite. And it’s easy to make too! Autumn baking doesn’t get much better than this.
Richmond Park, London. One of my favourite places in this wonderful city. Located in the south-west of the metropolis, the park covers 9.5 square kilometres, which makes it nearly three times larger than New York’s Central Park. Perfect for a day trip, the park also offers a unique opportunity for getting close to the nature – and it doesn’t cost a penny!
I’ve tried various types of adult activity book. The earliest trend I remember was for detailed colouring books for adults. Then, I found a connect-the-dots book with hundreds of dots per image. These activity books are great as stress relief, a good one to try if yoga or meditation aren’t your thing. They’re also fun to do!
Today, I’m taking you to one of my local parks. The Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park in Stratford, London – home to the London 2012 Summer Olympics. Ten years on, it’s a fantastic place for a walk any time of the year.
