5 Things I’m Doing to be More Healthy

With just six weeks to go until we fly out to Mexico for our honeymoon, I have been making a conscious effort to try and be more healthy, having lapsed over the past couple of months. I don’t want to lose a lot of weight, but it would be nice to get a bit more in shape and to feel confident whilst spending the majority of our week away in...

Beauty – My Go To Girly Scents 

It probably comes as no surprise that I am a self-confessed girly girl. I love the colour pink, I like anything that sparkles, shimmers or shines, and when it comes to fragrances, the more feminine the better! I love perfume, and have done for as long as I can remember. I have memories of my mum spritzing on her favourite scent back when I was a child, and as soon...

Wedding Wednesday – Behind the Bride – Jemma

This week’s Behind the Bride is with Jemma from Mayflower Blogs. Hi Jemma. First of all, congratulations on your marriage! When was the big day? My wedding was on the 1st of August 2009. Tell me a bit about yourself and your partner. When and where did you first meet? We met at school aged 7.  We attended the next four years of school together, then parted to go to...

Creating a Work Environment which Works for Me

This month marked an important milestone for me. I started freelance work for a company, and registered as self employed. The shift from stay at home mum, to working from home hasn’t been too momentous, as I had already set up an area of my house as an office to work on my blog. Although my freelance work is largely social media, and can be done anywhere, I do try...

Mummy Mondays – Why I’m Encouraging my 7 Year Old to Take my Photos

You may have seen, because I do keep banging on about it, that my eldest son has, for a few months now, been taking my style post photos. What started as a desperate move after Ed didn’t get home from work in time, has grown into something more as Cameron seems to have a real talent for taking photos. Using my Olympus Pen E-PL8, Cameron mainly points and shoots, but...

5 Tips for Starting a Bullet Journal

I tried, and failed, to make a bullet journal a couple of years ago. One of the main hurdles I faced was that I went into things all guns blazing and didn’t take time to plan it out first. You don’t need to be an amazing artist to create a bullet journal, but it is a good idea to know what you want from your journal, and to prepare your...

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...
