It is often advised that obvious signs of wear and tear should be attended with a renovation to make sure the structure is still safe to live in.

Flower Crown Making – The Perfect Hen Party Activity

•Review Visit• A few weeks ago I took part in a flower crown making activity with the Bournemouth Bloggers and Crafts and Giggles, which is a company run by the lovely Katie from My Best Make.

The Importance of Educating Ourselves About Climate Change

•Collaborative Post• I will admit, every time I hear anybody speaking about climate change I metaphorically shove my fingers in my ears and try and ignore the situation we are currently in.

A Relaxing Spa Day with Solent Hotel & Caudalie

Press event  Last week I was invited along to the Solent Hotel in Fareham, to spend a day at their on-site spa with several other bloggers.

A few of the other Bournemouth Bloggers also went along, and it was nice to spend the day with some familiar faces, as well as meeting some...

New Look Spring/Summer Essentials

Features gifted items  I have always been a huge fan of New Look. My first proper job was as a retail assistant in the Bournemouth branch aged 16, and the 50% staff discount meant almost all of my pay went straight back into the store. New Look, for me, have always offered affordable, high quality clothing, which suit my smart/casual style perfectly, and I was beyond excited to be sent...
