PLEASE COME & ‘DREAM OF DRESSES’ WITH ME TOMORROW?!

I AM nervous and excited today. Nervous and so bloody excited, because tomorrow, my new style To Dream Of Dresses finally goes live! *takes a deep breath* It’s taken ages to get it ready, much longer than I had hoped (yep, I’d completely forgotten just how much work it takes to get a blog off the ground!) but finally, finally it is all ready to go. Phew-eeee. I don’t want

20 THINGS YOU CAN DO ON A ‘NIGHT IN’

Long gone are the heady, exciting days when my weekends were all about going out on ‘the razz’. Now my idea of an exciting night is actually having a night in. (It’s the new ‘going out’ you know!) Tonight I am looking forward to doing exactly that. Curling up on the sofa, with a glass of wine in hand (and the bottle nearby) and relaxing. Ah bliss. It’s true, I

WHAT TO DO WHEN YOU’RE FEELING S**T (OR DOWN IN THE DUMPS)

We all go through it. Every single one of us. Times when we’re just feeling rubbish or to be frank, like utter s**t. Sometimes it can be just for a day or two, others time it can last longer.

I’m not joking to say I’m thrilled to be bringing this post to you today. Why? Because if you’re anything like me, you will love gorgeous gardens but have no real idea of where to start with one. When we moved into our home about two years, our garden was a jungle. Truly a jungle. A jungle which hadn’t received much love for many a year. Thankfully, with a little

MOTHERHOOD – THE BIGGEST ENDURANCE TEST WE WILL EVER FACE?

  Over three years ago I ‘signed up’ to the greatest test of my life. An endurance test of mammoth proportions. A test that would challenge my body and my mind. A test that would shake me to my core. A test that would make me question everything I thought I knew. What test am I talking about? This one. The test of motherhood. This morning as I sit here,

WIN a gorgeous set of colouring books – for adults!

IT’S all the rage you know… Colouring books for adults. And if you’re now looking agog and thinking “what on earth!”, well folks, all I can say is, don’t mock it until you’ve tried them. I first came across adult colouring books just before Christmas time after I did a little search for one on Amazon. I’d been doing lots of ‘colouring in’ with Elsie and was quite astonished at

Today I’m blue but I still stand, wearing red

TODAY I was going to write about style. That was my big plan. But then the General Election happened and I’m sat here finding myself unable to do it. To write about something seemingly so trivial at a time when what is happening to this country is so much more important. And so apologies to those who would rather I wrote about pretty things today, but today I am about

THERE are millions of blogs out there, including this one. Millions of people sharing their thoughts and lives on a regular basis, for you to enjoy. But how do you find ‘the one’? The blog that speaks to you. The blog that makes you hang onto every word. Your blog soul mate. How the devil do you track them down and introduce them to your busy, hectic life? On this
