5 Things – Summer Date Ideas

With the three kids, finding time for a date night isn’t always our top priority. Ed and I used to ensure we made an effort to have a dedicated night just for us once a month, but we have fallen into bad habits and, with the Bourmemouth Bloggers network having more events lately, I have had a busy diary and we just haven’t gone on as many dates lately. As...

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...

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,...

Foodie Friday – Date Night – Chiquitos

April Plans 

I can’t quite believe it’s already April, this year is flying by! Amid all the April fools jokes, I figured it was time for my April plans…    3rd April – Bournemouth Bay Run  I’m running the 5k with my sister in this event on Sunday which raises money for the British Heart Foundation.  6th-8th April – Family Trip  A short trip to Devon with my family to finish off the...

Date Night – Review – The Ox – Ashley Cross 

Ed and I try and fit in a date night as often as possible. With busy work lives and two young children added to the mix it isn’t always easy to have the quality time together all couples need. My mum, as I’ve mentioned, looks after the kids to help out, which allows for us to fit in some couple time together. So last night, we went on a rather...
