10 Things To Do In Gothenburg, Sweden

On the west coast of Sweden, Gothenburg is the country’s second largest city. Tourists flock to Gothenburg, particularly in the summer months when Liseberg, the city’s gigantic amusement park, opens its doors. Even when Liseberg’s gates aren’t open, Gothenburg has plenty to enjoy and discover! Here are my top ten things to do in Gothenburg:…

Arthur’s Seat Lit Up Yellow

*This post contains gifted items of clothing, both the coat and the jumper were gifted by Peregrine UK. Peregrine is a brand that I reached out to, to work with because they are Made in Britain, and use sustainable practices. They produce a really high degree of quality in their clothing!
I have been up Arthur’s Seat only once in my life. Situated at the tipy top of Holyrood Park in Edinburgh, it’s quite a little hike to get up, and, to be honest, I usually can’t be bothered. I go up Calton Hill every other week, and I regularly explore the other seven hills of Edinburgh, but I’ve only gone up Arthur’s Seat once. Today was not that day. Today we went up just high enough that we got a decent view, but more importantly, we got to get up close and personal with all the yellow gorse flourishing in Holyrood Park.

Mixing Prints and Patterns

Mixing prints is not something I usually do, and mixing tartan on tartan is definitely something I never thought I’d do. But when I left my house yesterday it was chucking it down and I grabbed my umbrella and off I went. It wasn’t until I was updating my Instagram (@arcticsabrina) stories that I realised I was mixing two different colours of tartan. I usually wouldn’t even wear more than one piece of tartan, and ever since moving to Edinburgh I generally avoid it at all costs. I brought my kilt home at christmas and left it there, and these trousers have been at the back of my wardrobe collecting dust. It just feels like a bit much when I wear tartan now, like a bit of an overkill. But yesterday I think I achieved the peak of ‘didn’t you know I live in Scotland now?‘ with my accidental tartan mix-up….

Solo Travelling In Bulgaria

How I ended up solo travelling in Bulgaria

Nobody really asks, but I can see their eyes secretly wonder “why” when I tell someone I’m travelling to Bulgaria for a little holiday. The short answer is … I don’t really know. It wasn’t because I have some ever-present burning desire to visit Bulgaria. My going to Bulgaria was just a holiday booked on a whim. Ryanair had a sale. It ended up working out well, but I didn’t have many expectations. I booked it quite simply because I had never been before, and because I had never thought about going. Usually people opt for the opposite. And that, ladies and gentlemen, is how I ended up solo travelling in Bulgaria….

Fika In The Morning, Hygge In The Evening

Moments from our weekend getaway to Sweden
Processed with VSCO with m5 preset

I went to Gothenburg, (Göteborg) Sweden for a little weekend holiday with my friend Lauren (loulabellerose.co.uk) a few weekends ago. It was the perfect mix of exploring somewhere new, and getting a very relaxing chilled out holiday! I’m originally from a small city in Northwestern Ontario, where the Nordic influences run rampant. Our approach to this trip was to explore, eat as many pastries as possible and find #accidentallywesanderson buildings on every corner. Basically, we wanted to fall headfirst into the traditions of fika (in the morning) and hygge (in the evening). …

Why You Should Try Airbnb

Vinales, Cuba

After staying in Airbnbs big and small all over the world, I’m a convert. I’ve found that they provide so many luxuries that you can’t find at a hotel or hostel! It bums me out that so many people are too nervous to try out Airbnb. I feel like they’re missing out on so many cool opportunities! On the other hand, I completely understand being apprehensive about it. I started out renting an Airbnb (entire apartment) with a friend. Then alone, I went alone, then I stayed in an Airbnb room in a shared apartment with a friend… And I’m still apprehensive about staying in a single room alone! But these are the reasons I think you should try Airbnb….
