The Best Hotels I’ve Ever Stayed In… So Far

the best hotels i've ever stayed in

A night in a hotel is literally one of my favourite things to do. I love them so much I’ve even stayed in a hotel in the centre of York on a number of occasions… A hotel that’s literally two miles from my house.

I’ve always loved the thrill of staying in a new swanky location and getting into a delicious hotel bed at the end of the day. Whether it’s in a nearby city like Leeds or halfway around the world in Dubai, staying in hotels is literally one of my favourite things to do.

I’m incredibly fortunate that I’ve stayed in a number of amazing hotels in my life so far, and while I don’t plan on slowing down my travels anytime soon, here are the best hotels I’ve ever stayed in… so far.

Btw, I’m sorry for the apalling quality of photos; lots of these pictures were taken on the likes of my old Blackberry and iPhone 3. SOZ.

Being on holiday – or simply just visiting a new place for the night – is my favourite thing to do, so naturally whenever I arrive home, I’m usually always feeling less than enthusiastic…

Here’s all the ways to feel like you’re still on holiday at home.

Why I’m So Obsessed With Travelling And Why You Should Be Too

obsessed with travelling

I’ve made it no secret around these parts just how much travelling means to me and I’ve come to the conclusion that I really want to focus more on creating travel related content on I’m Just A Girl.

I’m aware that some of you may not want to see travel content all the time, and there will still be the odd smattering of beauty posts, but I really want to make this blog something that I truly love and combined with my passion for travelling, I believe that I’ll be able to achieve this.

Having said that, today’s post is all about the reasoning behind my adoration for travelling, and why you should be obsessed with travelling too!

The Food We Ate In Paris


I was never really a ‘foodie’ person at all; it’s only in the last few years that I’ve turned into a pizza-obsessive-weirdo who just adores new cuisines.

When Matt told me we were heading to Paris, I couldn’t wait to tuck into delicious French baguettes, scrumptious macarons and so many other yummy dishes.

While we didn’t eat quite like a local, (I may be more ambitious with my food choices but I’m not quite brave enough for escargot) we did indulge in some pretty amazing food (read: a lot of pizza) and today’s post is all about what we ate and where we ate!

How To Spend 3 Days In Paris

3 days in paris

Paris has been on my travel wishlist for so many years now so when Matt surprised me with a trip there as my Christmas present, I was beside myself with happiness.

While it’s not the cheapest European city, it certainly is one of the most beautiful and our three days there were truly incredible.

We managed to fit so much in despite only being there for a short period of time so today’s post is all about how to spend 3 days in Paris.

(P.S, there’ll be a post up in a few days all about the food we ate while we were there, so keep an eye out for that!)
