I am back

I am back.  After taking some time (which ended up being 2019) off from blogging.

Why? I found myself not living in the moment sometimes,  I also had a lot of changes in life including my job and new responsibilities.

So whilst it will take me some time to update this site.

If you do not follow me on Instagram, here are some of the things I did last year.

 

Last year I travelled a fair bit, this was amazing. Travelling  opened my eyes to many new cultures and places.  My favourite trip? Has to be Dubai!

🇦🇪#traveltuesday 🇦🇪 Earlier this month I travelled to Dubai. Dubai had been on my list for a while but this trip came sooner than anticipated as a bit last minute getaway. So Dubai is magical ✨ I found it to be one of those places you can’t manage to fit in everything you want to see and I definitely want to return. •✈️ 💻I’m adding a travel part onto my blog but for now here is the low down. 👇🏾👇🏾👇🏾 • 1. I flew with @emirates from @londongatwick airport. I have to admit this was one of the best plane rides I’ve taken our flight was at 2am and landed in the morning in Dubai greeted with 39 degrees 🌞👩🏾‍🦱 I watched the film #widows and slept for most of the journey. 2. I stayed at @dukesthepalm in #palmjumeirah – everyone at this hotel was super friendly helpful and made this trip so amazing. If you’re looking for somewhere to stay I would recommend this hotel! 3. I was half board so ate mainly at the GBR restaurant in my hotel however other places I ate at were @thecheesecakefactoryme @shakeshack via @ubereats @dunkindonutsuae , @theburgerjoint , @wagamamauae 4. Places to visit @atlantisthepalm aquarium and @nobudubai @dubaimarinamall @malloftheemirates, ibin mattuta mall, @jumeirahbh , the gold souk and spice souk, @burjkhalifa. •I’ve heard that the best way to get over holiday blues is to book another.. any one have any recommendations for where to next? ~ ~ ~ #travelblogger #burjalarab #dubai #dubailife #uae #summer #lblogger #eattheworld #travelandfood #travel #jumeriahbeach #travelgram #wanderlust #travelforfood #mydubai #traveling #passionpassport #travelgirls #wearetravelgirls #blacktravel #blacktravelfeed #travelfeed #emirates #london #beach #dxb #burjalarab #burj

Postcards from Italy, I am now in Verona and this is my current view well the view from my iPhone 🤭.- •To get here I took a #trenitalia from Mestre to Venezia Santa Lucia and then another one to #Verona. I think there is something about public transport in other countries which feels easier than navigating the tube back at home and somewhat cheaper!😅- •on this trip I keep re-reading the quote “to travel is to live” and with places like this you know it’s true. – • This trip has taught me a lot so far and also I’ve remembered how many things I forgot to pack 😅. – • Now onto Bardolino, Lazise and Garda by boat. Has anyone been to these places? – : : : : : : : : : #wanderlust #wandering #travel #travelblogger #traveltuesday #travelphotography #shotoniphone #verona #veronaitaly #italia #summer #lblogger #italy #summerholidays #picturesque #wearetravelgirls #travelnoire #travelgram #europe #europetravel #veronacity #vivaitalia #humpday #italian #italy_vacations #italytravel #seetheworld #colourful #blacktravelgram #travelnoire

Happy February 🥳 (I think this means we’re closer to spring and therefore summer is even closer 👏🏾) ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ Here’s a #throwback on a Saturday yes I know I’m 🤯. To warmer times because I’m 🥶 right now, in #buranoitaly. Have you been to Burano? Fun fact: each family get to choose what colour they paint their homes. Although rumour has it that painting your house a different colours was so that the fishermen could see in the fog. ⁣ If I lived there mine would be pink! ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ I also realised I’ve never really introduced myself on here 👋🏾💁🏾‍♀️ I’m Precious (yes that really is my name, I get asked this always 😂) I’m a twenty-something food and travel obsessed gal from Essex/London and yes I’m the annoying friend who makes you wait to for a couple of mins to take a picture of food before we can eat but I promise we’ll always eat good food 💪🏾😂. ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ I’m spending my Saturday in London catching up with some friends. But Whatever you’re doing have a good weekend x ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ #throwback #visititaly #february2020 ⁣ #buranoisland #buranocolors #buranovenice #saturdayvibes #ootd #travellette #blackgirlstraveltoo #traveltheworld #melanin #weekending #sustainabletravelling #essexbloggers #melaninqueen #tannedskin #whereidratherbe #discoverunder2k

The rest is still unwritten… * Happy New Year, may 2020 be THE best one yet for everyone 💥💖. ⁣ ⁣ Now we’re done with the holiday season, the realness of returning back to work tomorrow is starting to kick in, although I’m super excited to get back to work #nhslife . The main thing I’m thinking about is WHAT to have for LUNCH 😂😅.⁣ ⁣ ⁣ I’m starting to incorporate some meat free dishes into my week so any suggestions are welcome. ⁣💁🏾‍♀️ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ps massive thanks if you found me the last few years. I started as I needed somewhere to remember all the places I had eaten when I moved to London but now it’s a photo diary of just wherever I end up. It also was a bit of an escape from my job but from this little app on my phone I’ve met some amazing people. Especially in 2019 💓 ⁣ ⁣ ⁣📸 August 2019 (I fell into the water shortly after this was taken cause I really can’t paddle board but I’m trying again this year) 💥⁣ ⁣ *Feel the rain on your skin No one else can feel it for you Only you can let it in No one else, no one else Can speak the words on your lips Drench yourself in words unspoken Live your life with arms wide open Today is where your book begins The rest is still unwritten ⁣ Unwritten by @natashabedingfield will forever be one of my favourite songs ♾ and I’m taking it into this decade. #2020⁣ #sustainabletravel #foodandtravel #occupationaltherapist #2020vision #devon #nhsworker #visitengland #devonshire #exeter #natashabedingfield #thehillsnewbeginnings #essexbloggers #ukblog #lawofattraction #blackbritishbloggers

Events

 

I went to a lot of events last year which allowed me to meet some fantastic people including those in Food, Hospitality, Blogging and Photography.

 

Eating:

Last year I was able to eat a lot, but the biggest thing was being able to eat food at the temperature it should be.  Often when you are out in restaurants you can look around and find lots of people taking pictures using not only their phones but also cameras. As the saying goes “The Camera Eats first” but last year I really started to just eat, eat without taking 100+ pictures because honestly, cold food sucks!

Sometimes in situations literally all you can do is SMILE 📍 OWL, San Pedro de Alacantra, Marbella 🇪🇸 ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ 📷 so I ordered the gluten free waffles and coconut water- This came with a spoon so when you finished you could eat the coconut and honestly I never realised just how soft the inside coconut is when they’re fresh! I love coconut water do you? ⁣ ⁣ 😊shout out to the waiter for taking these pictures and for the cute smile message on the coconut 🌴🥥 ⁣I needed that. ⁣happy Monday folks! Is anyone else heading to Marbella soon? Want to see a blog post on this? ⁣ ⁣ #vegan #glutenfree #Marbella #sanpedro #sanpedroalcantara #organicfoodsydney #food #waffles #australia #foodie #travel #organicfoodmarket #londonfood #puertobanus #coconut #coconutwater #organicfoodporn #organicfoodsandcafe #cafes #white #primania #health #foodorganic #spanishfood #españa #marbellaspain #⁣travelblogger #contentcreator #blogger #lblogger
