An Introduction to The Luxury Holiday Company

It’s officially the last day of January. Thank. God. That was a tough month wasn’t it? Now I’m not going to lie, I can’t promise February will be that much better BUT, I’m a huge glass is half full type of woman and I’m going to put January behind me and start...

Things I Want More Of In 2017

What a random blog post title! But it came about because I’ve just done my first Pilates class in over ten years this morning. I only went because I was the youngest person there! You have to take those small wins where you can. But seriously, I’m so glad I went....

What do you like about your body? That’s opening a whole can of worms isn’t it?   I watched a video earlier made by a young woman who had lost 147lbs and who then went on to have a tummy tuck – something I’ve been researching, you know … just in case. And she...

10 Things That Made 2016 Great

It’s New Year’s Eve, and my only plans for this evening involve a Terry’s Chocolate Orange and a kebab. Suffice to say, I’m not a fan of going out on NYE so will be doing what I’ve done for the past 21 years, I’ll be staying in.   It’s not so bad. Being single...
