Tips For Preparing For A Weekend Getaway

Going on a week or even two week-long trip is everyone’s dream, isn’t it? But sometimes it’s just not feasible… With busy schedules and bank accounts that constantly remind us of how we should be working and staying at home, those long vacations abroad are often times only experienced once or twice a year. However,…

Into the Woods

Hey everyone! This past weekend Jonas and I went to Germany to visit our friends in Mannheim. Whilst there, we drove to Heidelberg to explore the city and to our surprise- we were greeted with the most beautiful fall! The hills and forests were filled with colorful leaves just like a scene straight out of…

A Weekend Getaway to Paris!

Hey everyone! So a couple of weeks ago Jonas had an exciting conference he attended with his work in Paris for the week and I joined him during the weekend for a mini getaway. We had been in Paris for a short evening earlier in August, but it was nice to have a longer bit…

A Weekend Back In The UK

Nutrition 101: Dietary Fibre

Although it’s my favourite nutrition-related topic, quite a few people don’t know the importance of dietary fibre. This is a problem in many countries where people do not consume nearly as much fibre as they should, as it is important for a healthy digestive system and has been linked to reduced cholesterol, improved glycemic control, a…

Get Ready For Those Summer Picnics!

When the weather starts to feel more like summer and the sun is shining… there is nothing better than a British picnic! I did a picnic post last year, but thought I would do an updated one to share my picnic must haves with all of you. So grab a coffee or a tea and…

Easter Faves

Easter is quickly approaching and I am sooo excited! I love Easter- it’s a bit different in Lithuania since there is less Easter themed items in stores, however, it’s still nice to look around shops and websites here in the UK for some inspiration. I haven’t gone all out for Easter before as I always…

Redber Brazil Dbarbosa Coffee Review & GIVEAWAY!

As you may know, I am a massive coffee fan… well, Jonas and I both are! A few years ago I was sent a beautiful bundle from Redber coffee in Guildford, which was the first time I tried their roasts. Now, a few years later, I have the pleasure of trying out one of their…

Holidays at Home

Hey everyone, happy Sunday! I am now back in Guildford, sitting in bed with my laptop and a glass of rosé, typing up this blogpost before going to read a new book I got and wind down before work tomorrow. I came back to England a week before Jonas as I have to get back…

Snowy Fairy Tale

Hey everyone! I wanted to do a very quick post to say I hope you all are having a lovely Holiday season. I am currently in Lithuania enjoying some well deserved time with friends and family, so haven’t posted anything on my blog in a few days now. I am planning to do a few…

Sunday Breakfast Before the Holidays

Hey everyone! So this past Sunday I went out to breakfast with my friend Gabija before her flight back home to Lithuania. I’m flying out later this week and am absolutely excited- can’t wait to have some time off from work and be back in Lithuania with all my friends and family! We met up…

Photos That Make Me Smile #46

Hey everyone! I hope you had a wonderful weekend. Jonas and I had a few friends over from Lithuania, who we went to a birthday party with on Friday, so most of Saturday we spent sleeping in and enjoying my homemade pancakes. I did go into town on both days since the weather was absolutely…

Recipe: Autumnal Pear and Plum Bundt Cake

When it comes to autumn time, I always love to bake at home and make something from scratch. The past few weeks I’ve been treating Jonas with my traditional Lithuanian Apple Pie, but this weekend I decided to do something a bit different. I made a Pear and Plum Bundt Cake, that both of us…

Ready for Fall

I don’t know about you, but I absolutely love the fall time! It’s such a magical season. I love it when the leaves start to turn various colours and fill the streets, making you stop and stare, take photos, and crinkle under your feet as you walk by. I love waking up to a crisp,…

So, as many of you may know from my over-flooded Instagram and Insta-story feed, I am on holiday in Lithuania right now! Today is my last full day, but I’ve been here since last Saturday and enjoyed every moment. It’s always nice to be home in Lithuania. I get to see my family, my friends…

Cozy Sunday Morning

Good Morning, everyone! It’s Sunday which is one of my favourite days of the week. It’s a time to sleep in, stay in your pyjamas for longer than usual and enjoy the day. I especially like cold and rainy mornings like today as it makes the day super cozy and relaxing. It’s been so hot…
