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

Current Cruelty Free Skincare & Lip care Gang | AD

*This post features an advertorial with P'URE Papaya Lips Hi, hey, how are ya? It's been a while I know, and I'm sorry. I needed some time to settle into freelance life (which, I'm loving btw), and just some time to get into the new swing of things you know.  So anyway, that can be saved and chucked into a separate blog post (let me know if you fancy that).  Over on Instagram I've been sharing the odd product here and there over the last few months regarding skincare, as my skin went super dry as soon as the seasons and weather changed. My skin was flaking it was that dry, and my lips were red raw and went without lipstick as I couldn't bare to put anything on them at all. Thankfully I ended up creating a nice little routine....more on that in a bit, and found some new must haves for hydrating and softening the skin and lips.  Lets start from the bottom to the top ey? I like being awkward! And, before we get stuck in, these are all products

Cruelty Free Living Products And Where To Find Them

A super sunny good day to you beauties!  Welcome to my first of many cruelty free living posts I've wanted to do for such a long time now, and I've finally planned them and can't wait to hopefully inspire some of you to make a simple change to support the unfair testing and use of animals. The most common thing I hear back from people is "it's going to be expensive" or "that's so much effort", well it's actually not and the only effort you need to put in is to just pick up a different bottle *holds head in hands. It's that simple.  Over the last two years I've been gradually replacing items in my home with cruelty free alternatives to get to the point I'm at today. The majority of you guys like me, go to one store for the bulk of your weekly/monthly shop, however I've grown to enjoy searching for cruelty free products and options so am now a bit of a shop hopper.  When I think of the places I like to hit up th
