Vapiano in Edinburgh: Fine Italian Dining

Edinburgh has changed since the last time I visited. So many new shops available and loads of restaurants on offer. One of the newest spots though is Vapiano, an Italian restaurant which offers more than just food. A lively spot in the city centre, its perfect for date night or if you’re meeting up with friends.  Upon arrival we were met with a lovely chap called Jackson, who I’m assuming was the Manager on shift.…

I Joined Dating Sites and Found ‘Mr Right’

So cliché of me, Mr Right. Cringe even saying it in my head! But after years of dodgy dates, sneaky snakes and being signed up to many dating sites it was high time I got my fairy-tale relationship right? After splitting up with yet again another sleaze bag I decided I needed a holiday away so decided to hire a car (as I didn’t own one at the time) and disappear off to my mums…

2018 Goals – Blogging & Personal

Something about goals and resolutions fascinate me, I love to know what people are aiming towards or hoping to achieve in a year, I seem to set goals every year yet by the end of January I’ve failed miserably so this year if I set them out in stone it hopefully helps! I might be slightly late in bring out my 2018 goals but its been a hectic first week! But its a new year…

Reflecting on 2017

Hello! I hope you had a wonderful Christmas full of laughter, joy, happiness and lots and lots of chocolate! My Christmas didn’t officially start until 3pm as the children weren’t coming back until them and cut short at 7pm because I had to drag my butt to work! Was absolutely gutted to see I was working over Christmas and New Year but unfortunately this is the nature of my job, there’s always next year! I cannot…

Dreaming of a Tan in Costa Adeje, Tenerife

Oh how I long for another holiday abroad, back in 2015 I went abroad for the first time ever to Playas De La Americas in Tenerife but it had to be possibly the worst holiday ever. I caught the flu on the day of travelling and ended up spending the first couple of days in bed seriously ill. Total disaster of a holiday and it upsets me, one of the things I’ve said to James…

Making The Most Of December

Honestly, this time of year I’m in a constant childlike mind set. I absolutely love this time of year, everyone’s much happier, twinkling lights everywhere and you can literally eat your body weight in chocolate and not have a care in the world. I think its safe to say that lately most of us have been blessed with beautiful snow which just makes everything much more Christmassy! Lets hope this isn’t the end of it…

A Lush Christmas Haul

I do love a good haul and a Lush Christmas Haul is even better! They have some fantastic picks throughout their Christmas range which I could not leave unbought. One of my favourite things to do during the colder months is jump into a nice hot bath after a long day either working or Christmas shopping and trying to plan the perfect Christmas for my kids.  There’s some fantastic picks this year, if I could…

My Festive Spotify Playlist

Christmas music is what I live for. Something about festive songs just gets me right in a jolly mood! Cheesy tunes, dancing about the living room with my kids, wrapping presents with a glass of wine on the side and yes, I am that person who drives around everywhere blasting Christmas songs from her car. No wonder my kids think I’m an embarrassment. Christmas songs are banned 100% in this house though until the 1st…

The Perfect Bunch For Christmas From Prestige Flowers

The gift of flowers. Something that’s timeless. I absolutely love it when James brings home a bunch of flowers for me to cheer me up on a horrible day, even if they are from our local Co-op. Its such a lovely gesture and guaranteed to brighten up anyone’s day. So when Prestige Flowers got in contact to ask if I wanted to feature one of their Christmas bouquets on my blog I couldn’t turn it down,…

My Ultimate Cosy Night In!

If you don’t already know (I say it enough), Autumn is my favourite time of the year and one of the things I absolutely love doing is having a good old cosy night in. I don’t think there’s a better feeling than having the heating on, snuggling under your favourite blanket or wrapping yourself up in a dressing gown and catching up on your favourite shows, knowing that you’re super warm while the cars outside…
