My grandma is in town for the weekend and so we've been visiting the Titanic Museum in the snow. A great place and definitely worth a visit if you're in Belfast #travelgram #belfast #flashesofdelight #liveauthentic #harlandandwolff #titanicmuseum #titanic #visitbelfast #exploretheworld #lovewhereyoulive #seekthesimplicity #belfastcity #northernireland #ireland #snowday #winterwonderland #docks #bookstagram #samsonandgoliath #citylife

If you go down to the woods today... apparently someone's pet black bear once escaped in these woods and chewed the tires of party guests at the country house.

Went for a walk in the woods today and stumbled across this old gate. It reminds me of the secret garden and I had fun imagining what it must have led to at one point. It's funny how nature takes back everything eventually #wintertrees #woodland #belfast #intothewoods #exploretheworld #weekendadventures #bookstagram #redburn #northernireland #subdaywalk #seetheworld #lovewhereyoulive #winterwonderland #oldgate #theworldisagarfen #nature #thesecretgarden #liveauthentic #sundayfunday #thewildernesstonic #quietinthewoods

Saturday reading is the best kind of reading! And Piglettes by Clementine is the best kind of book to read! I don't know how this book manages to tackle racism, sexism, feminism and disablism whilst being funny, uplifting and quintessentially French! It must just be that je nais se quoi I guess. (I shared a little more about it on my blog- link in bio- if you want to read more about this quirky little book) #bookstagram #saturdayreads #weekendreading #prettybooks #bookclub #piglettes #pushkinpress #igreads #clementinebeauvais #bookishlove #frenchbooks #yafiction #goodbook #bibliophile #bookish #bookphotography #readmore #readingisfun #bookreview #bookrecommendation #liveauthentic #readtolive

Homage to Catalonia by George Orwell. Driving through the beautiful Catalonian countryside to Montserrat, it was difficult to imagine it as the settings of a bloody civil war. But you could understand how the beauty of this place would inspire patriotism. In the cities and towns we visited you could sense the undercurrent of anticpation, regarding the independence vote which was due to happen a few weeks after we left. I have rarely felt a sense of reading a book in the right time and place as this. #bookstagram #georgeorwell #homagetocatalonia #spanishcivilwar #catalonia #montserrat #bookclub #bookphotography #readmore #travelgram #booksinfinite #penguinmodernclassics #penguinbooks #readmore #goodbooks #bluesky #beautifulview #spanishcountryside #espaΓ±a #roadtrip #travelphotography

Brace yourselves! Whilst I was stuck on the bus earlier I discovered a treasure trove of pictures from my trip to Spain. A perfect escape from a cold bus journey home! #girona #travelphotography #travelgram #laidbacklife #beautifulcity #spain #costabrava #catalonia #gironafoto #espaΓ±a #travel #exploretheworld #seenewplaces #wanderlust #cafeculture #taketimeout #reclaimingmytime #liveauthentic #placestosee #travelling #seetheworld #happyplace #positivevibes #europe #europeanadventure

'A sister can be seen as someone who is both ourselves and very much not ourselves - a special kind of double' - Toni Morrison My sister @wren_jenny sent me this photo last night, and I love it, and her, very much! We're so similar yet somehow opposite...and I think that's the best way to be! Wrenny, thanks for being the best sister. #sisters #sistersnottwins #littlesister #lovemysister #goodthings #positivevibes #positivequotes #travelgram #costabrava #spain #lovetotravel #familygoals #itsthelittlethings #liveauthentic #lovethelifeyoulive #sistersister #travelphotography #wanderlust #everydaylife #finditliveit #liveunscripted

I have been taking a break from Instagram recently and, honestly, wasn't sure if I was going to come back. I want it to be a place I can share things I love and am interested in but I started to feel like this was no longer the case. Anyway, I realised that the only person making Instagram rules was me! And so I decided to install it again just to share the waffle making obsession I have been going through lately! Just two pictures, but there have been many, many more waffles πŸ™Š #reclaimingmytime #thingsilove #belgianwaffles #waffles #foodstagram #selfcare #sweettreat #treatyoself #itsthelittlethings #foodie #metime #foodphotography #dessert #waffletime #sweetwaffle #lesleyknope #taketimeout #dowhatmakesyouhappy

I have been laid low with a terrible cold for the past week and haven't felt much like doing anything. Starting to feel a bit better again though, which is lovely! Fun fact, you can see the coast of Wales, Scotland and the Isle of Man from this beach!

"[the picture] by Millais told equally plainly the school of art to which he was addicted." - The Warden . . I love to be reminded of things and places when I am reading, so I was pleased to see this reference to my favourite type of art 'The Pre-Raphaelites'! Funny to think that they were ground breaking and modern when the book was first published in 1855. (this is a picture of the stunning Musee d'Orsay in Paris where I got to see some of my other favourite types of art) #bookstagram #bookish #anthonytrollope #thewarden #penguinclassics #readingisfun #preraphaelite #museedorsay #paris #travelphotography #travelgram #artlover #parisjetaime #bookworm #bookclub #exploringnewplaces #readingtime #weekendreading #readmore #saturdaychill

A little story for you: When I travel I love to try the local delicacies. The food and drinks that give you a flavour (πŸ˜‰) of life in that place. Sometimes this is a disaster...and other times you find yourself sitting in a cafe in Barcelona sipping a Cafe Bonbon. Now, if you said "condensed milk and coffee" I would previously have said "😱 no!" but after trying this sweet, smooth coffee, well, let's just say I have a delivery of condensed milk making its way to my house as we speak! 😏🚚 #barcelonagram #travelling #coffeelove #cafebonbon #goodcoffee #coffeetime #barcelona #travelgram #tbt #lovewhatyoudo #bookstagram #exploringnewplaces #seetheworld #livethelittlethings #goandexplore #citiesoftheworld #lovetotravel #wanderlust #spain #catalunya #trynewthings #coffeelove #coffeeaddict #travelphotography #liveauthentic

I have really struggled with reading lately. Nothing seems to grab my attention and I find myself putting books down and never picking them up again. But this book made the grade! I didn't know what expect from Aziz Ansari but as a huge fan of Parks and Recreation I wanted to give it a try. A fascinating insight into how we meet people and fall in love. #bookstagram #modernromance #bookclub #azizansari #parksandrec #bookish #bookphotography #reading #booklover #bibliophile #readmore #nonfiction #penguinbooks #prettybooks #books #readingisfun #reallife #goodbooks #whatimreading

Since I have been saying I would visit Portrush all summer, I finally decided to go today. Well, the beach is beautiful but it rained, hailed and was sunny...all in the space of twenty minutes! What you're not seeing in this picture is a thoroughly drenched Kathy who is seriously questioning her choices! #portrush #northernireland #antrimcoast #travelphotography #beach #bythesea #coastallife #beachday #travelgram #wanderlust #everydayisanadventure #liveauthentic #adventure #travellove #beaches #bluesky #lifeisbeautiful #irishweather #sundayfunday
