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…

Ben & Anna Deodorant Sticks

Something slightly different today on the blog, but this is something that really interested me. I’ve been trying to make some changes in my beauty products by heading towards the cruelty free road so when I was given the opportunity to give these a try and share my thoughts I jumped right at the chance. So today I’ll be talking all about the Ben and Anna Deodorant Sticks*. These were created when Ben and Anna…

The Perfect Reds For Feeling Festive

You literally cannot go wrong with festive reds this Christmas, I tend to shy away from a bold lip until December rolls around then all it seems to be is red everything! I’ve currently got red nails and I’m usually the person who never wears nail varnish any time of the year. Something about the colour red just makes me feel sexy, confident and glamourous in anything I do, even if I’m lounging about the…

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…

My Top 5 Favourite Blogs – Spread The Love!

Before becoming a blogger myself I used to spend hours upon hours most nights reading through all my favourite blogs before I even considered building one up for myself. However one day my Fiancee told me I desperately needed a hobby so I took the ultimate plunge and created my own little space on the internet! Since then I have discovered so many more blogs out there but today I thought I would share with…

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…
