5 Things to Do on Your Next Visit to Newcastle

When I was around twenty, my brother moved up to Newcastle to attend the university there and, since meeting a girl there who is now his wife, he hasn’t moved back down. The couple have since moved a little further out, into County Durham, with their gorgeous daughter Isla, but we try and visit as often as possible, and tend to still head into Newcastle when we are up there...

Beauty – Current Beauty Favourites

It feels like ages since I last shared with you my beauty favourites, so I thought I would do a little round up of the skincare and makeup items which I’ve loved lately. Urban Decay Naked Palette I already have the Urban Decay Naked 2 and 3 palettes, and I love them! The pigmentation of the eye shadows is incredible compared to others I have used, and I love how...

Wedding Wednesday – My Experience of a Bridal Styled Shoot

It may come as no surprise that I love weddings. I really enjoy hearing about other people’s plans for their big days, and I love sharing the special days of other couples in my Behind the Bride series. I absolutely loved watching Saturday’s Royal Wedding and I even felt a bit blue on Sunday morning after it was all over. It also made me look back over my own wedding...

Learning New Skills with Parley Golf Centre

Last Friday I was invited along to Parley Golf Centre for a little introduction to golf session with some of the other local bloggers in the area. Although a few members of my family are keen golfers, and Ed and his parents also enjoy the sport, I have never properly been on a golf course before and didn’t overly know what to expect from the day. I went along with...

Preparing for our Forever Home with Posterlounge

Something very exciting happened last week. Ed was offered a full time position at the school he’s been doing his teacher training at. This means that hopefully, before long, we will be in a position where we will be able to sell his flat and buy our own family home. You may have read previous posts where I talked about making plans for when we move and, when Posterlounge offered...

Beauty – My Makeover at DFMA Makeup Bar

On Saturday I was invited along to the newly opened DFMA Makeup Bar in Westbourne for a professional makeover. DFMA are predominantly a makeup academy with courses across the country, but they have opened their doors in Westbourne to provide professional makeup for all. I had originally been planning on going out after having my makeup done, but as we had gone out the night before, I just had a...

Wedding Wednesday – Behind the Bride – Kim

This week’s Behind the Bride is with Kim from Life of an Auntie. Hi Kim, first of all, congratulations on your marriage! When was the big day? Our big was original set for the 22nd July 2017, but in December 2016 I found out I was pregnant and due to give birth the beginning of July, so we had to postpone it and rearrange it to the 28th October 2017....

How to Deal with Hair Loss

I’ve suffered with postpartum hair loss with all three of the kids, but after having Benjamin my hair loss has been more significant than in the past. It’s completely normal to experience hair falling out after having children, but it doesn’t make it any less distressing. Not only is it frustrating, having to keep clearing out the plughole every time I shower, it also chips away at my self confidence....

Mummy Mondays – Peppa Pig World Grand Preview Day

On Friday, my mum, Benjamin and I headed off on a bit of an adventure. Two new rides are opening in Peppa Pig World at Paultons Park this week, and I had been invited along to the press launch by Liz Lean PR. Although I have been blogging for seven years, it’s only recently that I have taken my writing full time and I haven’t been to a lot of...
