Before I begin, I was never asked by The Ivy to write this post, I just wanted to write about my experience there. Ok, now the legalities are out of the way, I can relax and casually write the night away. So yep, I visited the Ivy in Cardiff. Not exactly headline news, but I'd appreciate if you carried on…

Just a note of caution, this review will likely hold spoilers from season one of You as the context is needed in order to explain and review season two. For all those who loved season one of the Netflix special You, then you would love season two even more. The twists and turns will leave you shocked, from Joe's new…

Travel costs can really add up, to the point when even the smallest getaway can feel like a luxury. And it’s even more expensive if you head overseas. Between rising airfare costs and unpredictable currency exchange rates, it can be hard to relax on your hard-earned holiday when you're worried about costs. Luckily, there are some travel tips and tricks…

Hi everyone! It’s been a few months now since I moved to Tokyo and life here is great so far. It’s nearly Christmas and I’m a little nervous that living away from family will be at its hardest over the next couple of weeks, but hopefully it’ll be okay.

The purpose of this article isn’t too boast, but rather provide some insight into how a regular millennial woman manages to travel on an above-average wage (according to Bristol Post) and what my life looks like…

On Saturday 30th November 2019, I went to the matinee performance of Jack Whitehall: Stood Up in the Motorpoint Arena in Cardiff.  I thoroughly enjoyed the afternoon and left with my cheeks hurting from the laughter. I was disappointed to read the scathing reviews of the tour; the Guardian gave it one star saying, “The comic, who doesn’t seem to have any interest…

Apart from the Scrooge's and Grinch's out there, the majority of us all love the mince pie and tinsel season. Christmas in terms of buying presents has evolved so much over time. Nowadays, my friends who have children of their own are buying their kids iPad's, iPhone's or X Box's. Every present they get now seems to involve a plug…

Christmas is my favourite time of year. I’m that irritatingly festive person who puts up their tree in October, much to the displeasure of everyone else. For me, there is no better weekend than one spent in a foreign city surrounded by wooden market stalls, carol singers, and delicious food – for these reasons, Budapest should definitely be on your…
