5 Tips for Kickstarting Your Health & Fitness this Season

I don’t know about you, but when autumn comes around, I feel my motivation slipping when it comes to my health and fitness. The darker mornings and evenings can leave me feeling sleepy and lethargic and all I want to do is hibernate under the duvet with all the junk food. Not keeping on top of my exercise and diet can have a detrimental affect not only on my body...

Style – Transitional Pieces for a Warm Autumn

What is going on with the weather at the moment? One minute it’s nice and cold outside, I have my nice warm coat and scarf on and I am hunting for leaves to kick through whilst wearing my boots and the next it feels like the middle of summer all over again and I am frantically shedding layers! I know an Indian summer was forecast but I can’t be alone...

Wedding Wednesday – Capturing the Proposal with Engagement Cam

When Ed proposed to me three years ago, it was such an amazing experience, not only because I was committing to stay with a man I loved but also because he had gone to so much effort when it came to the proposal itself. He had set up a treasure hunt for me, culminating in a meal at our favourite restaurant at the time where he got down on one...

Disneyland Paris – My Favourite Rides

I really enjoyed putting together my last post all about planning a trip to Disneyland Paris, so I thought I would do another one, this time focusing on the rides I love the most. I will put a little disclaimer out to start with here, if you are a thrill-seeker when it comes to theme park rides, I would give this post a miss as I am a total wimp...

Mummy Mondays – Why I’m Not Planning Any More Children

Wow, that title all sounds a little bit final, doesn’t it? The thing is, typing this out has had me second guessing myself, but ultimately I know it makes sense for our family to stay as it it. For us, three kids is enough. Any more and I honestly think we would struggle, that the whole family dynamic would be stretched, and that isn’t something I am actively encouraging, despite...

Foodie Friday – Brewhouse & Kitchen’s New Season Menu

This week the Bournemouth Bloggers were invited along to the Bournemouth branch of Brewhouse & Kitchen to try out the new season’s menu. I hadn’t actually been to Brewhouse & Kitchen before as last time I was invited along I wasn’t able to go and Ed went in my place. He had told me it was a nice venue and that the food was good so I was looking forward...

Beauty – An Evening with Lush Bournemouth

I have become a huge fan of Lush over the past couple of years, ever since I started to enjoy baths and I feel the two kind of go hand in hand. Although I have bought myself several bath bombs from Lush, I haven’t really paid attention to the rest of the products they have on offer. I was really excited to head along this week to a special event...

Preparing for Halloween with Children

I am a huge fan of Halloween. Not only is it smack bang in the middle of arguably my favourite season of the year, but it is also a chance to dress up, have some fun and really enjoy all that autumn brings. As a mum, I have enjoyed starting some halloween traditions over the past few years, which we can enjoy together as a family. This year I have...

Wedding Wednesday – Behind the Bride – Amy

This week’s Bride is Amy from Living the Harmon Life.  Thanks for taking part Amy. First of all, congratulations on your marriage! When was the big day? We got married on 24th May this year so have only been married 4 and a half months! This date coincided with my Nan and Grandad’s 60th wedding anniversary so was a double celebration and an extra special date for us all. Tell...

How To Change up Your Rented Accommodation – The Bedroom

I have mentioned before that Ed and I currently live in rented accommodation whilst saving the money to buy a bigger property than the one we currently own and rent out. Living in rented accommodation can be frustrating at times as you are limited on what you are able to do to put your own stamp on things. As we are likely to be staying in rented accommodation for the...
