Go for Festive Drinks Ok, so festive drinks are pretty much the same as non-festive drinks if you aren’t a mulled wine fan like myself, but...

Foodie Friday – A Visit to Baffi Pizza with Bournemouth Bloggers

A few weeks ago I took over the day to day running of my local blogging network – Bournemouth Bloggers. So far I am really enjoying it and have arranged a Christmas meet-up, which is next Tuesday, where I will have the chance to discuss plans for the group going into 2018. Part of running the network involves arranging review visits with local restaurants and when I saw that a...

Sanctuary Spa Christmas Box of Delights Review

After I had their advent calendar last Christmas, and absolutely loved it, I had been on the lookout for the 2017 offering from Sanctuary. I eagerly scoured their website, the Boots website and all the beauty blogger advent calendar roundups I could find from October to no avail. Sanctuary, it appeared, had decided not to go ahead with an advent calendar of their own this year, and I for one...

Wedding Wednesday – Our Minimoon Stay at Fistral Beach Hotel & Spa

Ok, so this is technically our second minimoon stay since getting married in September, but who’s counting? Plus, as we had our uk wedding reception in November, this is the minimoon for that wedding, so totally justified, right? Anyways, we had booked this mini break months ago and I have been so excited to visit the hotel as it looked incredible when we were researching places to stay – the...

My 2017 Year in Review

The other day I had one of those lovely little videos pop up on Facebook, the ones where they put together a selection of your best moments from the previous year and it reminded me to put this post together. 2017 has been a fairly eventful year for our little family. I gained a niece and a nephew early on in the year, had a couple of lovely holidays, and of course got married! The year seems to have gone by much faster than...

Mummy Mondays – Keeping my Family Warm This Winter with AO

Although I’m nearing the big 3-0 and I have three children, I sometimes struggle to remember that I’m an actual adult. It feels like just yesterday that I was a carefree teen. I can safely say that this month I definitely felt like I had made the transition into a ‘proper’ adult though, when I took a delivery from AO for an indoor heater. When I was kindly offered the...

Creating my Perfect Christmas Party Makeup Look with MeMeMe Cosmetics

Last week I was invited down to Beales department store, in Bournemouth, where MeMeMe Cosmetics had recently opened up a stand, for their blogger event. I will be honest, before the event I hadn’t really heard of the brand before, so I wasn’t sure what to expect when I headed over before my review visit to The Stable. The event was very casual, with those invited able to attend anytime...

Wedding Wednesday – Behind the Bride – Laura

Today’s bride for the Behind the Bride series is Laura, from Autumn’s Mummy. Hi Laura, first of all, congratulations on your marriage! When was the big day? Thanks! We got married two and a half years ago, on 26th June 2015. Tell me a bit about yourself and your partner. When and where did you first meet? My husband and I met during GCSE study leave in 2008 when we...

Mummy Mondays – A Wonderbly Christmas

I can’t believe its been almost a year since we did our very first review with Wonderbly for their fantastic Lost my Name book. Since then, the blog has come on leaps and bounds and I have reviewed several other titles including The Birthday Thief, The Incredible Intergalatic Journey Home and most recently Kingdom of You. Today I wanted to share with you one of Wonderbly’s newest creations, My Golden...
