Giveaway - Free September Wallpaper!

Ready for September? I'm not! Can't believe how time is flying by... But anyway, I'm not here to complain, I'm here to share with you the latest wallpapers I've created just for you, because you behaved well ;)

September is the start of Autumn, so I thought that some leaves represented in an earthy orange and blue colour palette would be perfect. Hope you like them!

Click here to download the first version with the typography, and here if you prefer the pattern of leaves. Also, I did a really nice mobile version combining both artworks that you can download here.

See you later!

A Holiday in Prague (Part 3)

Right, so I'm back from my holidays in France and I realised how far behind I was with my photos for this blog! Yep, I have the last part of our holiday in Prague to show you, and it was in June. I know, I know, shame on me! Hope you enjoy them though :)

Towards the end of the week, we thought it would be wise to take it easy and enjoy the city whilst the weather was still really nice. On the morning of our fifth day, we went up the tower of Charles Bridge and the view was pretty amazing! As you can see, we took loads of photos of the town as we had a really different view of it. And then in the afternoon, we hired a pedalo for an hour and experienced again a different view of Prague as we were going under its iconic bridges.

And on our last day, well, we just ate a lot! We really enjoyed going around the shops and relaxing before flying back home. In the evening, we decided we had to treat ourself with a really good dinner, Yum!

Overall, we were so pleased with this trip and we would definitely recommend Prague as a great destination for some short (and cheap!) holidays :)

See you soon!

Off to France!!

Because I can only see my family twice a year, I obviously can't explain how excited and happy I am when I can finally go back to France for a week or two! I'm jetting off this weekend and will come back in just over a week. Hope you won't miss me too much! I can tell you I won't miss North Wales once I'm sunbathing at the pool hehe.

See you soon!

A Holiday in Prague (Part 2)

Hello! Enjoying your weekend? Because we can't use the car this weekend (failed MOT, argh!) I figured it would be a good time to sort through some more of our photos from Prague. Makes me want to go back!!

On our third day, we decided we would go and explore the great old fortress of Vyserhad and even if the weather wasn't as nice as we wanted, it didn't stop us! This area was full of history and it was really interesting to discover all the myths related to its ancient origins. The cemetery was certainely really unique with all the golden letters in an Art Nouveau style on the graves. Before heading back to the apartment, we enjoyed a bit of sunshine in the Old Town Square, giving us a chance to take even more photos!

The Jewish community played a big part in the history of Prague, so we couldn't miss the opportunity to visit the Jewish quarter on our fourth day. Unfortunately, we couldn't take photos in any of the museums and synagogues we've seen that day, which is a shame as some of the interiors were absolutely amazing. I only managed to snap some photos in the cemetery, but I had to pay for it (Have you seen Jason wearing the kippah as a sign of respect?)! After a late lunch at Bakeshop Praha, we wandered around the city and its markets, finding berries in every corner and enjoying the sights and sounds.
