Beauty – First Favourites of 2018

Having received quite a few beauty gifts over Christmas, I’ve had lots of new products to try out over the past six weeks or so. I thought it would be good to do a little round up post of the ones I’ve been loving. There’s a real mix of makeup, fragrance, and skincare. Lancome La vie est Belle This has been a firm favourite of mine ever since I bought...

Wedding Wednesday – The Perfect Proposal & Top Planning Tips

What better day to discuss proposals than Valentine’s Day? Festive Lights recently ran a survey, which was featured in Brides Magazine, and the results showed that the most popular time of year for proposals is Christmas, followed by Valentine’s Day. I can’t say I’m surprised, there’s something so magical about Christmas, even as an adult, so what better time to pop the question? Valentine’s Day tends to get a lot...

Gifting the Globenfeld Sports Watch

Watches can be a lovely gift for both men and women, but they can also be one of the hardest gifts to get right. There are so many different styles out there, and if you don’t really know what you’re looking for, it can all be a little overwhelming. Ed is quite practical when it comes to watches. He isn’t as bothered in how fashionable a watch looks, but more...

Mummy Mondays – Spring Cleaning with the Hurricane Spin Scrubber

Living in rented accommodation, our hands are tied a little in what we can do to make our living environment nicer. We aren’t really able to decorate much, so it can feel like we are living in a house but not a home. The house tends to get a little damp over the colder winter months, and our bathroom has not been looking its best lately. When I was given...

The Greatest Showman is my Greatest Motivation

It’s been a long week… Having handed in my notice during my maternity leave, I haven’t worked (apart from the long hours I put into my blog) since a week before Benjamin was born. This week I started freelance work for a local PR firm. This week two of my three children also spent a couple of days each off school unwell. I also had a very full social diary...

Our Night at the Grosvenor Casino with the Bournemouth Bloggers

A couple of weeks ago myself and several of the Bournemouth Bloggers went along to The Grosvenor Casino in the town centre to have a look around, try out their food and drink menu and have a little lesson in the art of Roulette and Blackjack. I was very excited for a night away from being a Mum and got stuck in straight away with one of the delicious cocktails...

Style – A Lovely New Look for Spring

Alright, alright, I know it’s only the first full week of February, but the promise of spring is here, and I’ve been lusting over all the new clothes to hit the shops since Christmas was over. This week I finally gave in and treated myself to a few new pieces. I don’t know about you, but I seem to have a definite colour that looks better on me than others,...

Wedding Wednesday – Planning our Honeymoon to Mexico

You may have seen that last month, Ed and I finally got round to booking our honeymoon. We are flying out to Mexico in two months, during the Easter break and I am both excited and nervous in equal parts! Whilst researching places to stay in Mexico, we looked into lots of options. I always research a destination extensively before making a decision. I was tempted to go off the...
