About Ally

30-something travel, food & fashion blogger from Leeds with a love for life!

I love wearing a good pair of jeans, eating out (a lot!), owning far too many handbags, travelling to beautiful places and finding the perfect pair of wedge trainers...all whilst drinking a glass of Brunello di Montalcino.

Follow me on Twitter, Instagram, Snapchat (digital-diva) and Facebook.
