Christmas is coming and, for many, it’s the time of year when purse strings are stretched to the max and the struggle to afford it all is all too real. It can be overwhelming watching the costs mount up whilst social media is awash with reminders of how little time there is before Christmas is here but it is possible to get through the festive season on a budget.

Beauty – A Christmas Showcase with The Body Shop

Last Friday I was invited along with some of the other Bournemouth Bloggers to an event with The Body Shop.

Preparing Your Home for Christmas

Yes, I know Christmas is still several weeks away, but it really does creep up on you and I always find it better to be prepared than panicking closer to the time. I tend to start Christmas preparations from the beginning of October, as it gives me a good couple of months to really get ready. I will be sharing a variety of Christmas gift guides over the coming weeks,...

Beauty – The Beauty Gifts I Got for Christmas

These posts seem to be so controversial. I personally don’t see why. I am nosey and love reading all about what people received from loved ones, friends and family. Reading other people’s always gives me an idea of what I might want for my birthday in May, or to treat myself to throughout the year. This year I got a lot of beauty based gifts, which I had mostly asked...
