Hello! My name is Hayley.

I’m a 30-something Kent based blogger living with my lovely husband and spoilt pet cat.

I started this blog as a creative outlet and a way of sharing my travel memories but it’s slowly turning into more than that, with my passions spanning beyond hopping on a plane to faraway lands into simpler things closer to home, such as days out in Kent, the animal kingdom and mental wellbeing.

Some fun facts about me –

♥  I was born on April Fools Day.

♥  I can lick my own elbow. The only other person I know who can do this is my brother – we’re thinking of taking this talent on the road and joining the circus haha.

♥  I’m distantly related to William Shakespeare on my mum’s side and King James III, IV and V on my dad’s side! I am neither rich, famous or talented so I don’t know what happened there!

♥  I love a bit of fancy dress.


♥  I also like making new friends.


So put your feet up and stick around for a bit! Leave me a lovely little comment or just peruse the posts of this lifestyle and travel blog.

Peace, Love & Wanderlust x
