I’m Steph, a full time social media manager and part time lifestyle and travel blogger from Newcastle Upon Tyne.
I have a passion for traveling to new places, revisiting old ones, eating out, beautiful hotels, taking photos and football.
I love the North East, where I live by the coast with Kieran and our pug puppy Arthur. You can expect blogs about what’s on, where to eat good food, where to drink better coffee and cocktails, tips for visiting, and my general day to day life in this fabulous city.
What started as essentially an online photo gallery has transformed into my place on the internet to share my experiences of travel, restaurants, lifestyle and everything in between.
I write for people like me who want to make the most of their free time, weekends and annual leave. People who travel to get away from the monotonous daily grind, who want authentic experiences, and to make the most of every trip they go on.
People who can’t be arsed to cook every night so prefer to eat out. People who get bored by doing nothing.
I’d love to say I travel for as cheap as possible, but I’m a lot more likely to choose convenience over cost, throw a bit of luxury into every trip, and try to get as much authenticity out of it as possible – as well as the usual tourist stuff!
I am occasionally invited to try restaurants, hotels or experiences for the purpose of a blog review. These blog posts will be disclosed clearly, and all opinions will always be my own.
If I am paid to write a post, or for a collaboration with a brand, the post will be labelled as ‘sponsored’. I am very selective over these types of collaborations.
Some posts contain affiliate links, whereby if you purchase a product via that link I will receive a small commission from the sale, at no extra cost to yourself.
I only feature brands that I use or recommend personally. I don’t accept all of the opportunities offered to me, simply because if I wouldn’t do them myself, then I wouldn’t recommend you to either.
In addition to running this blog I work as a Social Media Manager for an international travel company, responsible for the global social media presence, campaign and content creation, and blogs.
I have over 5 years experience in social media planning, strategy, execution and creative campaigns, delivering digital content across multiple platforms, website and blog creation, and photograph editing.
