Travel along with Emilee
Todays gem is what I would call a travel guru. She is full of knowledge when it comes to places to stay, eat and adventure. I lust over her instagram daily to see where she’s off to next!
Its time to share some of my favourite accounts with you all. I love doing these sort of posts because it means meeting new faces aswell as showing you some of my old faves too. Getting to know you all a little better is a joy!
Emilee lives with her partner and daughter Lilah in Norwich Norfolk. A social media exec for a home interiors company. Check out her instagram page here to see her delightfully colourful feed which will make you want to start your travel plans and jump on a plane immediately!
Where is home for you?
The lovely little city of Norwich in Norfolk. Although London feels more like home to me. I moved there when I was 18 and spent the next 10 years there. Our little girl Lilah was born there too so it holds a massively special place in our hearts! Both cities feature heavily on my Instagram feed.
What is a regular day like for you?
A weekday starts with my alarm sounding at 6:35am, (that’s if Lilah hasn’t woken me up before then). The next hour and a half is spent manically getting ready for work/school and making it out of the door on time which is quite the challenge. Before Lilah started school I dreaded what’s known as the ‘school run’, but it’s actually turned out to be one of my favourite times of the day…15 minutes of one-on-one time chatting about all the randomness that comes from a four-year-old.
Once Lilah’s dropped off I head to work where I spend the day as a Social Media Exec for a home interiors company. As well as my social media duties, I work at our studio once a week styling products, and also work away on our location shoots, so it’s a creative and varied role which I really enjoy.
After the working day is done, we try to have a civilised and healthy family meal together at the table before Lilah goes to bed, but sometimes this goes to pot and we end up eating a quick meal on the sofa!
Your instagram has a wonderful selection of photos from your travels, when did you last go away and where to?
The last time was a family holiday to Lake Garda and Lake Iseo, Italy in July last year. It was absolutely stunning and I definitely recommend it. I never had the chance to travel as a child so it’s amazing to be able to give Lilah that opportunity and to see the world through her eyes.
How do you relax?
My time to relax is usually Saturday evenings when my partner is out DJing and I have the evening to myself. I either have a friend over for wine and a catch-up or just chill by myself with Netflix and copious amounts of chocolate.
Whats an ideal weekend to you?
Exploring somewhere new with my little family whether it be a new park, village, beach or restaurant (while taking pics for Instagram of course!). We usually do more of this in the summer though as I cannot bear being cold! We also love spending precious time with my sister and her family who also live in Norwich.
Do you have any instagram accounts you admire at the moment?
Oh goodness, there are so many! I love following accounts that document their honest, everyday lives on stories such as @mamas_scrapbook and @blossomingbirds for beautiful tones and facades, my favourite account is @justhelenmarie for creativity, I just love Barbora of @herinterest she doesn’t use photoshop on her images, all the magic she creates is made in the moment of taking the shot. She’s super clever and adds all her behind the scenes in her story highlights which I find fascinating. For fashion inspo I always head to @lauraslittlelocket and @sophiemilner_fs
How would you describe yourself in three words?
Impatient, Caring, Perfectionist
Ok, i’m pretty nosey when it comes to this one so I’ve got to ask, Whats in your handbag?!
Snacks, snacks and more snacks, hand-cream and a million lip glosses and lipsticks. I always carry the most essential thing of all, an umbrella!
Whats on you 2018 bucket list?
To get my blog into a shareable state! I started a blog over a year ago, but I still don’t have the courage to share it. My aim is to add a few more posts and finally add it to my Instagram profile before summer begins…wish me luck!( By the way, I think Emilees blog is beautiful and so worthy of sharing!!)
I would also like to fit in a few trips away. I already have a family trip to Lisbon planned in April and a little getaway to Dubrovnik with my sister in September. If I could squeeze in a holiday with my girlfriends too somewhere in between, that would be just perfect.
