Well hello there!

My names Samantha Avena, 22 years old and a Ba Hons Language Studies; Spanish, Italian & Phonetics graduate of Leeds Met!

British born & bred with an extreme love of all things travel, creative and animal related. I started blogging on my year abroad in Spain & similarly started snapping with my Canon 550D there too. Since then, I haven’t been able to stop!

This blog is a culmination of all the above plus beauty, health and a general ‘lifestyle’ mixture!


I like to take photos; in any form, iPhone snaps to my AE1 programme film. I love to paint & generally make messy things. I like to run (sometimes) and have gone from couch to 10k (Race For Life) – which was nicely featured on Freshly Pressed! I love travel, general small animals – especially sloths, teaching myself new things, green tea, day-dreaming and pilates.

Social Media!

Feel free to contact me on any of those!

  5. Hello,

    I represent http://www.healthyweightlossuk.com. I recently came across your site and we’re interested in buying advertising from you directly.
    We have a a relatively large advertising budget and we can launch a test campaign immediately.

    We would like to run and pay for a week of advertising on your website (based on your monthly fee divided by 4)

    If the test campaign meets our expectations, we would be open to making a longer term advertising commitment.

    Please put me in touch with the right person to discuss this further.

    I am reachable on Skype at: jasonshouldice, Telephone, 1-613-761-2746 or simply by responding to this email.

    Thanks for your time,
    Jason Shouldice
    Media Buyer
