    Travel, life, food and home – with a weekend twist

    Weekend Candy is here to help you squeeze a feck-load more fun from your days off.

    It’s made for those cheeky, adventurous, girls and boys who love living the width of their weekends and not just its length.

    I call these types of people ‘weekenders’. Those brave folks who kick chores into the long grass because they know the weekend was made to be enjoyed, not for work or chores or eating supermarket cheese.

    Let's be clear: life's too short for ironing

    On Weekend Candy, you’ll discover ideas for taking a short break in the UK or indulging in a city break in Europe, as well as inspiration for spicing up your weekend. I’ve created the site to be a massive treasure trove of articles, guides, and information on travel, life, home and food all with a weekend twist.

    Shop small with The Weekend Wanderlist Directory

    Weekend Candy also includes a Directory of unique and original places to eat, stay, do, and enjoy for you to use to plan great short breaks. The idea was inspired by my travels: as I’ve weekended over the years, I’ve discovered (and fallen in love with) many brilliant small businesses. They’re out there, bringing their unique vision to life and deserve to be found by more people.

    So I created the Directory as an easy way to share those businesses with more people, like me, who support local and independent entrepreneurs. And in turn give those businesses an opportunity to use my platform to be more visible and connect with more customers.
