My Three Wardrobe Essentials for a City Trip

Fashion blogger, Leigh Travers, lists her three wardrobe essentials for a city trip

Packing for a city trip away can be a nightmare for the indecisive, especially when you're not sure what the weather will be doing whilst you're away. Considering I've been travelling more frequently I've started to narrow down my packing from taking an extra 20kg suitcase with too many options (and paying a ridiculous amount) to just travelling with hand luggage most of the time. Packing lighter means taking extra consideration on what to bring and what essentials you'll need rather than options. I've compiled a little post on three of my absolute wardrobe essentials for any city trip.

How To Spend 48 Hours In Copenhagen

Nyhavn - How To Spend 48 Hours In Copenhagen

A few months ago, James and myself booked ourselves a trip to Copenhagen after being enticed by some £35 return flights. Originally I was actually looking at spending a weekend in Manchester, but considering the train was closer to £100 each, it was a no brainer that we were off to explore Denmark instead! We did actually spend a little over 48 hours in the Danish city - we had around two and half days there in total - but we did visit Freetown Christiania twice in that time, so I'm basing this guide on how to spend a couple of days there instead. This trip marked #4 as part of my Leigh's 12 in 12 mission, which means I'm now a third of the way through this little self-initiated travel challenge.

It's also probably worth mentioning in advance that we did not visit the famous Little Mermaid statue, so it will not be featured in this guide.

Tasting Turtle Bay's New Vegetarian & Vegan Summer Menu



A few weeks ago Turtle Bay unleashed their new lively summer menu, with a few new vegetarian and vegan additions.  The last time I visited Turtle Bay to taste their menu was just before I made the switch to a vegetarian diet, so I was delighted when I received an email to say they had extended their veggie and vegan options.
