mental health Mental Health Day #TimetoTalk 2nd February 2017

February 2nd is #TimeToTalk day and it’s aimed at bringing those who are hiding their very real mental problems from those closest to them and encouraging them to talk about it, as well as for those who have concerns about another person and advising them to simply ask “how are you?” I wanted to share my...

Uncategorized Haunted by the Homeless 21st January 2017

There are a few things that occur on this Earth that I cannot tolerate. One is animal cruelty, one is discrimination against anyone or anything and the final one is homelessness.  In this century it should absolutely not be a reality for anyone.  There is no excuse. Just play the video I’ve included in this...

homeware Bargain Bedding 13th January 2017

Hope you’re doing well and have made it through this “blizzard” okay? I decided, as I’m a bedding bargain junkie, to have a little mooch around the ASDA George site and see if I could snag myself any sales steals.  Fortunately, I did! Now, like a lot of people, I love all things woodland related.  I’m...

fashion Skinnydip Love 6th January 2017

Hope the first week back at work hasn’t been too painful for you guys?  But never fear, Friday is here and you can wallow in your sorrows of having to go back to reality later. I promised myself that since I got engaged I’d do my best to cut back on my spending and do...

Christmas is a magical time of year on it’s own.  The festive spirit and sense of family and love all come together and sets a universal blanket of happiness over everyone. Children wait eagerly for Christmas Eve, excited for Santa to come and to see if he’s eaten his mince pies and drank his milk;...

A little over a week ago I entered an Instagram competition to win some products from Amphora Aromatics, and I was fortunate enough to be chosen as their winner (yey!). They arrived today, and I couldn’t wait to get inside the box and take a look! I received a Reed Diffuser kit, a 40hr Pot...

travel New Zealand Travels 7th December 2016

It’s been a little hectic lately.  I’ve been obsessing over this trip to New Zealand since June and was so anxious to make sure everything was perfect and prepared for, so I could make it to my best friends wedding.  I never expected to fall madly in love with the landscape quite like I did,...

Uncategorized Cancer, You Suck 11th November 2016

I’ve been pretty absent since my last post.  So much has happened in the last year and amongst all the chaos I completely forgot about my blog.  I don’t really know where to start.  I guess it would make sense to start at the beginning? In September 2015, shortly after his 24th birthday, my boyfriend was...
