Last month Tom and I went on holiday to Benalmadena in Spain. It was perfect - we relaxed, ate so much tapas, sat in the sun and just completed unwound. I hadn't been to Benalmadena before but Tom used to go a lot when he was younger and he had spoken about how he'd like to take me there ever since we first got together. I fell in love with it and I already can't wait to go back!

With that being said, I thought I would share just a few photos from my holiday.


Being debt free. That is something I never thought I would say. It's also something I'm sure I'll miss saying once I've got a house and a mortgage. But for now, I'm debt free and it's my biggest accomplishment so far.

I can remember being younger and always thinking "that is never going to be me". I used to hear stories from friends that I used to work with of how they were this much overdrawn and how they owed this much money on a store card and I always used to think "how did you let that happen?". Now I'm asking myself the same question. It's easy actually, it all got too much and I did the one thing that you really shouldn't do...


The other week Tom and I went to Akamba Garden Centre in Shirley, Solihull. Neither of us had been before but I've heard some good things about the evening entertainment they do. We went thinking it would be somewhere nice to walk around on a Saturday afternoon whilst it was sunny but we didn't expect it to be so, epic.

It was about a 20 minute drive from my house and I can't believe I had never been before or heard more bout it.

It's an African/Caribbean themed garden centre which stocks loads of exotic plants and garden sculptures. You'll see from the photos I took, it was walking through a little jungle.
