A little slice of paradise in Dubrovnik

Travel post: Dubrovnik, Croatia - Hungry Little Bear
Everyone has a special travel memory they hold close, one that fills them with warm happy feelings and makes them want to pack their bags to go back immediately. For me, one of those places is Dubrovnik.

When my sister announced she had to go to Croatia for work for a week, I immediately offered to come with her. I mean, who wouldn't?

In my geeky mind, I was thinking about all the Game of Thrones locations I could see but the pretty sea, terracotta roofs and charm of the old town won me over.

Blog Goals for 2016

Blog Goals 2016 | Hungry Little Bear

Last year definitely had its ups and its downs for me. My nephew being born was definitely an up! Cheesy as it sounds, it's amazing to see everything through his eyes now. His laugh is also the cutest thing ever. 

Landing a solid job post-uni was another highlight, but the journey to it was not. Temp work and being unemployed for months is not fun. I started putting more time into this blog, but still haven't done as much as I would have hoped. 

There have been so many times that I've had a baking idea in my head and then forgotten about it or made it and it's eaten it before photos can be taken. There's also been baking fails - some I'm just never attempting again. Ever.

Blogging is definitely not as easy as some may think it is. It's not all sunshine, baked goods and pretty photos. Everything takes a lot of time and a lot of effort. Which is why I've put together some blog goals for this year. 

Everyone makes resolutions at the start of the year but I can never stick to resolutions. There's too much pressure and they just end up making you feel like a failure. Goals sound a lot more attainable and realistic.

2016, I've got big plans for you!
