The Crown Hotel, Poole

I don’t usually write posts reviewing restaurants but I felt I had to mention this total gem my family discovered at the weekend. As my mum and Carly’s birthdays are over the weekend we are in Disney, we decided to celebrate early. My aunt who lives in Kent came down for the occasion and, as our usual restaurants were fully booked for Sunday lunch, my mum booked The Crown Hotel...

My Resting Bitch Face 

Yeah, that’s actually a thing and I totally have it. Realising that I’m not the only person out there that walks about their daily life looking like someone just died is such a relief.     In fact, the ‘syndrome’ is more common than you might think. Just bringing it up at work led to the discovery that half of us suffer from it – not that brilliant considering we work...

Amazing Base 

I am the first to admit that I’m a bit of a makeup addict. I am very insecure with a bare face and I struggle to comprehend how some girls are able to go makeup free whilst I still struggle to cope not reapplying after a long day at work (seriously, I think the air conditioning eats my foundation or something because I come out of work looking like some...

Firework Mayhem

So last night, Ed, my sister Megan, Cameron, Carly and I headed off to Ed’s friend’s mum’s house for a firework display in their garden.     It was a nice evening, the kids had loads of fun with sparklers and playing in the large garden, there was plenty of yummy food and lots of cool fireworks being set off throughout the night.           At around 9pm when we...

Remember, Remember the 5th November… 

So yesterday my sister asked if I wanted to go with her to my nan’s to watch the fireworks over Poole quay for bonfire night tonight. As my nan happens to live in a totally amazing, I’m not jealous at all, flat with views across the quay, therefore providing the most comfy and warm viewpoint for the fireworks, I of course agreed.     What made things a little more stressful...

My Monthly Plans – November

So I’m going to try and refrain from showing my excitement by using cap locks… This month I am going to Disneyland Paris, aka my happy place, with my family!! I’m such a huge kid at heart that this is at present more exciting to me than Christmas, and that’s saying something! So, what other plans do I have this month? Well they all kind of pale in comparison but...

Piyo 

So a few weeks ago I did my first Piyo class and I haven’t looked back. Before I joined the gym I hadn’t heard of the class before, and I was a little confused of what it was and what to expect when I finally managed to book onto the class (it’s extremely popular).  The name suggests a mix of Pilates and Yoga, but in fact I feel it’s a...
