My Berlin diary


Berlin was never a place that appeared on my destination wish list, but now it appears in capitals. I can't recommend it enough. There's so much to see, so much to do and lots of places to eat and drink. Our trip was for three nights and two days of purely site seeing, visiting places like the Berlin Cathedral, Berlin Zoo and Potsdamer Platz. It was the perfect length of time to enable us to see everything we wanted to. 

Our hotel which was within the Wilmersdorf area. It was a 25 minute walk straight up the road to Berlin Zoo. But if you don't fancy walking everywhere there is a tube station just a minute up the road.



Berlin Zoo was amazing and was very well priced! They had such a vast a ray of animals including a Polar Bear in nice big enclosures.
Currywurst and chips from a small place just outside the Zoo. 
Brandenburg Gate
Jewish memorial 


Checkpoint Charlie
A section of the Berlin wall
Some delicious food in the City Mall



The underground is so easy to use and only cost 7.40 Euros for the entire day in all zones!

So of you may not know but I'm unable to eat any dairy so to be able to have a milkshake and a chocolate croissant was heavenly.
These photobooths are dotted around Berlin and if your not looking for them may miss them. This one was left out of Schönhauser Allee underground along Shönhauser Allee road.
Berlin Cathedral was breathtaking.
The longest remaining part of the Berlin wall which is called East Side Gallery is covered in amazing graffiti. Would highly recommend visiting.
My first ever Wok to Walk was so scrummy and the ice tea was beaut.

At the Panoramapunkt viewpoint in Potsdamer Platz was such a nice way send off your trip. 
Meal from the last night in Berlin. We chose the Hard Rock Cafe near to the Uhlandstraße underground.
All of the people we spoke to, asked directions from and bought something from were lovely, friendly and extremely helpful. The city of Berlin was very clean and had such a nice vibe whilst walking around during the day and evening. If you're looking for a city break full of history, beautiful architecture and home comforts like Starbucks around most corners Berlin is the place to go.

Have you been to Berlin before? Where did you stay?

  1. I spent four days in Berlin at the beginning of July, and I loved it!
    I went there with my class so we had some sort of schedule and did a lot of sightseeing, aka walking around the city from 9am to 9pm, and I still feel like I didn't get to see everything that I wanted to see.
    We stayed at a youth hostel located in Schöneberg, not far from the downtown area, which was definitely cheap but nothing I'd ever chose when I visit Berlin again.
    Did you go shopping at the Kurfürstendamm? That was dreamy, let me tell ya.
    Well, this turned into quite a long comment, didn't it? All in all, I loved being a total tourist in Berlin and I definitely want to go there again!

For The Love Of Cucumbers and Skincare

AD with Yes To Good morning and happy National Cucumber Day! I love cucumbers! There, I said it. I like to eat them, drink them in juices and smoothies, and even like them in my skincare routine. Over the last couple of months I've really struggled with my skin. Getting hard lumps under the skin, and rash like breakouts that were super persistent and refused to die down. I thought about whether or not I was using too many different products and clogging up my skin, or it was just down to stress or something. All I knew was that I had to give something a go and hope for it to work it's magic on my problem skin as it was getting me down. What a day to share my love of cucumbers and my love of the  Yes To Cucumber  range with you cuties. Make yourself a cheese (vegan cheese if you're like myself) and cucumber sandwich and take a read about a range you'll want try!  It may shock you to see an entire range made with cucumbers, but it's actually a

A November Book Haul

contains pr products, *aff My obsession with books and reading is still going strong guys! Since my post way back outlining how I was getting back into ready ... I think was back in 2018 and here we are. I've smashed my Goodreads goal of reading 50 books this year, and I'm actually closer to achieving 100 books read. I don't want to put too much pressure on myself but, I'd LOVE to get there. Anyway, books are a huge part of my life now. And even though I like everyone go through slumps where I don't want to read anything, when I am in the reading mood I normally have a few on the go at the same time and have turned into a big mood reader. Which I've found actually helps me get through books so much quicker.  As a member of the Book Break Insiders Influencer group, I am lucky enough to be sent a selection of books every month. Which helps to keep my nose is a book that's for sure! Book 1: The Silence by Don DeLillo* A timely and compelling novel about what ha

Cruelty Free Beauty | Brands and Product Favourites

Good day beauties! So, you guys have been messaging me here, there and everywhere about sharing my top cruelty free beauty products and brands with you.  And because my cruelty free living post did so well, guess what you guys have today?  You've guessed right! And I'm super happy to share with you some top beauty products and brands I reach for, but first I'd like to just share with you why going cruelty free is good.  For me, having a cruelty free lifestyle means not using anything containing animals or their by-products, or using products where animals have been mistreated and used for testing them, and is the way I wish I had chosen to live my life a long time ago. Make up and skincare are products are materialistic in my eyes. We want these things and like them, so I think it's so unfair for innocent animals to be used, killed, kept in awful conditions and tested on against their will just so we could have that new mascara. There's just no need for
