Food & Fitness Friday – Quick & Simple Date Night Dinner 

I love a good date night at home but I’m not the most adventurous of cooks (that’s Ed’s speciality). As Ed’s Valentine’s surprise was in the day, I decided it was only fair to cook for him in the evening on Tuesday.  Although my skills do reach past Fajitas, it’s something we both love and I figured it would mean less time in the kitchen, more time snuggled up on...

Completing our Bucket List One Valentine’s Day at a Time 

As you may know by now (because I keep banging on about it over social media), Ed has started a tradition where each Valentine’s Day he will arrange a surprise for me, something new that I haven’t done before.  The first year it was horse riding, the second year (just after we found out I was expecting a little baby Benjamin), it was a shooting range. I love spending Valentine’s...

Why I Loved 50 Shades Darker… And No, it’s Not What You Think…  

This evening I went to see 50 shades Darker. I think it’s safe to say I didn’t really go into the film with high hopes. I’m sorry if you loved the first film, but I thought it was utter crap and I thought this would be much the same.  When my sister asked if I wanted to go with her and her friend I figured it might be worth a...

A Gift from the Heart – Going Homemade for Valentine’s

You may have guessed by now but I LOVE Valentine’s Day… Yes it’s totally over commercialised now, and yes it can be expensive, but only if you let it be. I don’t like spending money just for the sake of it, and I find that a lot of the gifts being sold are a little pointless, and not very thoughtful. Instead, I like to make my own gifts for Ed. ...

The Ugly Truth Behind my First Fairytale – Divorced at 25 

When I tell people I’m getting married this year they are full of excitement for me. They tell me how amazing the run up is, how fast it all goes by on the day and they give me advice from their own experiences. They never even consider this isn’t my first marriage. I can’t blame them. At 27 years old you’d hardly imagine I would already have a failed marriage...

December Date Night Box – Meet me Under the Mistletoe

After our amazing date night back in November courtesy of the brilliant new subscription box Get Date Night, Ed and I were so excited to receive our December box. I was secretly hoping it would have a festive theme and, although the theme itself isn’t Christmassy, there was a sprig of mistletoe in the box with the cutest slogan print to go alongside (made for a perfect Instagram shot too,...

Date Night Subscription Box Review 

As soon as I heard about the latest subscription box ‘Date Night’, I knew it was something I would love. Ed and I are so busy, even more so now we have the two children and newborn baby Benjamin. We try and make time for date nights as often as we can but they are few and far between.  I love the concept behind this subscription box. As with most...
