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 – I Tried Out HD Brows with HI Therapies and This Was the Result

I have been having issues with my eyebrows for a good few months now. I have been trying out different products trying to find something to improve them to no avail, spending money and getting frustrated. Last week I was invited along to my local beauty salon HI Therapies to try out their HD Brows treatment and I was so excited to see if it would finally be the key...

Wedding Wednesday – Behind the Bride – Emma

This week’s Behind the Bride is with Emma from Building with the Breretons. Hi Emma, first of all, congratulations on your marriage! When was the big day? It was Thursday 29th May 2014. We got married just before the bank holiday weekend so guests could enjoy a couple of extra days off as well as being an attempt to save a few pennies along the way. Tell me a bit about yourself and your...

Bohemian Rhapsody Review – Is the Movie Worth the Hype?

This evening I went along to our local Odeon cinema with Ed and our friends to see the World Premiere screening of Bohemian Rhapsody, the new Queen biopic which has been much anticipated by many. I feel I need to prerequisite this review by mentioning that I am by no means a big Queen fan. I love a lot of their music, but I didn’t go into the film really...

5 Ways to Get a Better Night’s Sleep this Autumn

When the days get shorter and the nights get darker quicker, I tend to go into hibernation mode a little and spend as much time as possible in bed. Sometimes, despite getting to bed early, I can struggle to switch off and actually fall asleep. One of the key reasons for this was our mattress. It was fairly old and quite soft and saggy, and I just couldn’t get comfortable...

5 Simple Ways to Transform Your Home

I absolutely love the concept of making a house a home. It is one of the reasons I am so excited to find and buy our ‘forever’ home as soon as we are able to. Although I am quite a fan of modern, newer build houses, Ed is very traditional and prefers the older buildings that have character and, more importantly, space. So, I know that when we do move,...

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...
