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

  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.

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’ve not had one of these feeling-out-of-sorts kind of days for a while. A long while in fact. So it came as quite a bit of a shock. What the hell is going on here, I thought?!  Doubt. That’s

Do you still look frumpy and large, even though you already have a slim figure? Well, take a look at what you are wearing first. Of course, it’s really important that you eat a balanced diet and exercise regularly in order to tone your body. But most of the time, you can still look bulky if you’re wearing the wrong types of clothes. Having curves make you look hot! But

The best beauty products I’ve discovered over the past year (or so)

AH beauty products. They often promise so much yet deliver so little. However these little ‘beauties’ below are ones that you can rely on. Products that are the cream of an overflowing crop. Little belters that will most certainly help you feel and look amazing. In my humble opinion of course. Some of them have been sent to me by brands (I’m a fortunate woman that’s for sure) but most
