SPONSORED / FINISHING OFF OUR HOME

We’ve lived in our ‘project’ house for just over five years now and boy has that time flown! After moving in when Elsie was a mere six weeks old (yep, that was interesting!) we’ve spent the time doing up our 1930’s detached house as best we can, but there’s still quite a bit left to do. The downstairs is almost finished. We’ve just got a few cosmetic jobs left to

A BOOK UPDATE / IT’S ALL CHANGE!

Last week I did something quite radical and I ditched a book that I’ve been working on for the past few years. Not so long ago, I signed my first book publishing deal to write an inspirational book about blogging and how it can change your life. At the time I was over the moon! I literally jumped for joy when the contract landed through my letterbox and couldn’t wait

A GIFT IDEA THAT ALLOWS FOR EASY SHOPPING

Back in December I was given a shopping challenge and asked to try out a new kind of gift card that allows greater spending freedom. The kind people at *One4all sent me one of their lovely gift cards and always up for a challenge, I soon got to work. My shopping mission – for those of you that may have missed it – was to buy a party outfit and

WHY IS IT SO HARD TO SEE OUR OWN BEAUTY?

There was an older girl in my primary school whom I adored when I was little. I thought she was the coolest, funniest and most beautiful girl I had ever met and I wanted to be just like her. She wore the best clothes, was bright as a button and had a nonchalance about her which was remarkable. Whatever that infamous ‘it’ is, boy did she have it. I would

STYLE / FINDING A PARTY OUTFIT

So, over the Christmas and New Year period, I was set a shopping challenge. To find a perfect party outfit on the high street using just the One4all gift card. Easy right? Well in many respects it was, yes. But let me tell you, trying to find a suitable party outfit that wasn’t black, navy or burgundy was like trying to find a needle in a haystack! Some of you

18 FOR 2018

ONE thing I don’t do anymore is come up with New Year resolutions. (This Instagram post explains why.) But I am a dreamer and a bit of a planner, so when my lovely blogging friend Lucy over at Mrs H’s Favourite Things, tagged me in an ’18 For 2018′ post, I knew I’d be foolish not to take part. 18 For 2018 is an idea that’s come from Gretchen Rubin,

THE ANSWER TO YOUR CHRISTMAS SHOPPING PRAYERS

With just a few days to go until the big day, like many of us, I am beginning to feel a slight wave of inner panic building inside as I realise just how much I still have left to do on the final countdown. Luckily for me, the bulk of my Christmas gift shopping has thankfully already been done, but if you’re currently sat at home reading this and finding

A FESTIVE BREAK AT WYNYARD HALL

A few weeks ago we had the most festive overnight stay at Wynyard Hall, a luxury hotel in the North East. It’s a place which we have totally fallen in love with as a family and only just discovered, but much to our utter delight, only a few weeks after our first stay, we were very kindly invited back to experience a special Christmas break. We arrived on a Friday
