KAMLOOPS, WHISTLER AND THE SEA TO SKY HIGHWAY

The beauty of a trip that is relatively unplanned, is that when you turn up somewhere and feel at home you can simply decide to stay longer. This happened to us in Whistler. We arrived, checked into our hotel, and within an hour had decided we needed longer than one night to explore. But in

TOP ADVICE FOR HAPPY FEET – BECOME A SOCK SNOB

Whenever I am asked what my absolute top piece of advice is for those wishing to get outside more, I always say – “wear good socks”. Whether you want to go on a day hike or two, start a self-powered commute (walking or cycling), or simply want to spend more time out and about, the

CURRENTLY LOVING | JANUARY 2017

My blog is primarily about the outdoors, adventure, travel and my bucket list, but I do like to deviate slightly once a month for my regular currently loving post. More the type of post a ‘lifestyle blogger’ might write, I enjoy putting these ones together because they help me to stop and consider the things

SEVENTEEN LIFE CHANGING CHALLENGES FOR 2017 (PART TWO)

The second half of my list of life changing challenges for 2017 (part one can be found here) offers a few suggestions that are slightly less adventurous or sporting, and more about you and your personal wellbeing.

Hiking in Yosemite National Park

I think Yosemite National Park is one of my favourite places in the world. It has views like no other, and having visited before we knew that this time around we wanted to do a hike to experience what the park had to offer away from the roads and standard photographs. We chose to hike

Airstep Becomes A.S.98

There is no doubting it: autumn is here. There was even a hint of ground frost this morning as the overnight temperature grazed just a couple of degrees above freezing. The perfect excuse to pull out your favourite parka – like this one from Esprit. The thing I love about coats like this is that they can

Defining Your Younger Years in Trainers: Nike Air Max

What shoes define your younger years? I don’t mean what stunning designs were you wearing when you turned 18 and were allowed to wear whatever you wanted. I mean, which shoes did you lust after when you were too young to buy your own? The shoe, or rather the trainer, that defined my young teenage

World Cup Fever for my Feet

Okay I’ll admit something. I don’t really do football. I don’t mind it as a sport – I enjoyed playing as a kid – but it’s not something I make any effort to watch on the telly and I can’t remember the last time I went to a ground to watch a match live. Actually, I

Converse versus Vans

I mention Converse on here a lot. I love them. They are comfortable and I love the style. They go with everything and last for ages. But when a blogging friend from the States commented on my most recent post featuring Converse that he prefers Vans, it got me thinking. I wear both. There is no denying I

Tie Dye Converse

Hands up if you had fun putting elastic bands around t-shirts and dying them in a buckets of  bright blue, purple and pink dye when you were a kid? I know I did! Well it appears Converse have bought themselves a box of elastic bands… meet this season’s take on the All Star. What do you reckon?

Shorts and Baby Pink Converse?

I’m going to do it. I’m going to jump on the “we’ve had blue skies for a whole day so it must be springtime” band wagon and suggest it’s time to start thinking about lighter materials and short sleeves. Too early? Quite possibly, but it’s nice to dream of summer! Oh and yes, I’m also
