I have been having some trouble with my posts not appearing in WordPress reader. JetPack have assured me that they are but I know for a fact that several of my followers have alerted me that they aren’t.
If you are seeing in this in your reader (or aren’t) – either way can you please let me know in a comment!
If you know how I can fix this also, I would really appreciate it if you could let me know!
I will be the first to hold my hands up and say I was excited to go to Prague but didn’t expect to fall in love with a city like I did Barcelona.
I have to admit… I did fall in love!
I mean look at this photo?! The buildings in Prague are the most beautiful, detailed and historic I have seen in ages and every street was completely picturesque.
If you love travelling but find it quite a financial ordeal, Prague is also perfect.
Even down some of the most touristy areas, we grabbed large pizzas and a drink for around £7 each which is such good value – as well as it being amazing food too!
Also, beer in Prague is renowned for being cheap (about the same as a Diet Coke to be exact!) so if you do like a casual drink or two, it won’t break the bank.
The sites in Prague are just stunning and I found that so many things they had to offer were totally original and unique compared to other tourist cities. We went to the John Lennon Wall (photo below) which is a graffiti wall with so much culture and emotion behind it. I’ve never seen anything quite like it!
On a side note, if you love toy shops or have children, there is a crazy big Hamleys that has a slide and an ornate carousel inside!
On the last day Adam and I visited The Apple Museum as I knew beforehand that it was forecast to thunderstorm. It was quite pricey for such a small museum but it was an attraction completely different to anything we had done before. I have also included a photo of some of the Apple laptops they had displayed because it looked so cool. Steve Jobs was a phenomenal person and it was nice to learn more about his business ventures.
The transport in Prague is also super easy to navigate and understand – considering the language differences.
We used the metro to get around when the journey was long or the weather was terrible and it was great. You pay 48 CZK each for 30 minutes of travel, so around £1.70 which I think is pretty good. They only have 3 lines and everything is signposted so switching lines or knowing where your stop is, isn’t a nightmare at all and so easy!
As I mentioned earlier, the history in Prague is so rich. You can do tours and visit museums that focus on the rule of Communism or WW2 or you can marvel at the famous astronomical clock which was installed in 1410 and is one of the most amazing masterpieces of its time. So if you love history, it’s one for you!
Have you ever visited Prague?
Time for some mid-week motivation! If you like these and want to see a few more, I have linked my previous ones below:
This week is focused on university and ties into my Student Diaries posts:
Now that we are in the month of returning back to university, school, and college I thought it was perfect timing to have some study inspiration quotes to get everyone through the week. Although many of these are still applicable to day to day life and work so everyone can take something from them, which is great.

So, I discovered the best body cream ever. I have to be honest, body cream is something I don’t often think about and go and purchase for myself. I usually use whatever I have from birthday presents, Christmas presents etc and don’t give it too much thought. This has genuinely all changed now and I would never consider buying another body cream again!
When What’s In It For Me? suggested sending me something from their range I was so excited. I mean, let us just talk about that packaging for starters. I love the sleek white look and the choice to list the ingredients on the front with their benefits in such a simple design just looks fab. I’m not one for bright colours, lots of fancy designs etc… I just want something that tells me what it does and sells it to me at the same time. This range totally does that.
Their branding is just great too and something I have never seen before. “Designed to appeal to our inner selfishness, this is a brand to indulge the most important person in your life”. Yes yes yes. I love it! I think sometimes you definitely just need to spoil yourself and your body and this is the perfect treat.
What’s In It For Me? sent me their body cream to test out and I have given it two weeks to form my opinion on it.
As you can see from the photo, the ingredients include orchid, ylang ylang, jasmine, violet oil and cedarwood oil and the tub you get is 200ml which is a fantastic amount of product. The price is £11.50 on the Harvey Nichols website where you can shop the range here. To compare, the infamous Soap & Glory The Righteous Butter is £10 for 300ml which makes it only slightly more expensive but definitely worth it. A little certainly goes a long way so I don’t feel like the price point is too much.
Honestly… how luxurious it made my skin feel and the lasting fragrance. The scent wasn’t over the top or in your face but lasted all day which was incredible and not what I expected at all! As soon as I applied it, I was shocked by how great my skin felt – which equally held up the entire day. If you are wondering why this is such an amazement for me, I have suffered from dry skin my whole life (I had bad eczema when I was younger too) so this kind of positive reaction doesn’t happen very often.
I would totally recommend this to anyone who wants to treat themselves or someone else to a luxurious body cream and I can assure you that this won’t be the last you see of this company on my blog as I can’t wait to invest and try out their other products.
