Wedding Wednesday – The Three Things Brides May Have Overlooked

Wedding planning can be pretty stressful. In fact, weddings rank as one of the most stressful events in life. It’s no surprise that frazzled brides to be can become more than a little overwhelmed as the big day approaches. Although it can feel a little like the world is against you and you will never find the time to organise all the little things, try and take a step back,...

Beauty – A Christmas Showcase with The Body Shop

Last Friday I was invited along with some of the other Bournemouth Bloggers to an event with The Body Shop. We had been to an event with them the month before which I really enjoyed, so I was very much looking forward to this one especially as it was a chance for the store to showcase their Christmas range. On the night it was absolutely pouring with rain and so...

Foodie Friday – Trying out Las Iguanas’ New Seasonal Menu

Last Friday, Ed and I went along to Las Iguanas’ Bournemouth branch to have a date night and try out their new seasonal menu. I haven’t actually gone on a restaurant review visit with Ed for a long time as I took over my local blogging network the Bournemouth Bloggers this time last year and have mostly gone along as a group instead. It was nice to go and experience...

Beauty – The You Magazine Beauty Advent Calendar 2018

Last year Ed bought me the Boots No7 Advent Calendar and I loved it! I was so excited to get it again this year but when I went to search for it I saw it had already sold out…. in mid-October…. and there would be no more stock coming in. I do think the world has gone a little crazy when it comes to beauty advent calendars. Some of them...

This week’s Behind the Bride is with Stacy from Mom of Two. Hi Stacy, first of all, congratulations on your marriage! When was the big day? Thank you! The big day was 30/05/2015 after a 3 year engagement. Tell me a bit about yourself and your partner. When and where did you first meet? I’m 26 years old and my husband is Jacob and he is 27. We met back in...

Restyling my Bedroom with Beautify

I have been working hard on our bedroom to make it feel comfortable and welcoming for us as the cold, dark evenings draw in. Recently we changed our mattress and, since then, I’ve been adding little touches to the room to make it as welcoming as our bed. Living in rented accommodation can make it a little challenging to create a space that feels your own, but it is possible...

Christmas Gift Guide for Children

Christmas will be here before we know it. If you are anything like me, you’ll be getting into full festive mode round about now and starting to think about what to buy for friends and family. I thought I would kick off this year’s Christmas Gift Guide series with present ideas for children, as I often find them the hardest to buy for. With new toys, books and games coming...

Beauty – The Pampering Products I’m Loving this Season

The weather has definitely taken a turn for the worse again this week. With temperatures dipping, and heating going on all over the UK, it has never been more important to spend a little time pampering yourself and taking care of your skin. Since going along to blogging events with both Lush and The Body Shop in the last month, I have been making an extra effort to have a...
