It literally is the calm before the storm at this point as storm Barbara is on her way to Scotland! Not only that, Christmas is finally upon us with only a couple of days to go. Scary how quickly that happened! I wonder just how mad, 'mad Friday' is going to be tomorrow! I made the
I think all of us bloggers, at some point, compare ourselves to others. These horrible nagging thoughts.. 'Do I still "fit in"? Do people see my content? Is it worth it when others do it SO much better? Am I pretty enough? Am I cool enough? Do I stand out..?' It's completely normal, right? But it's
On Saturday, we had our works Christmas night out. I was fine, totally fine. I swear. But I still felt that fragile coldness the next morning, the kind you only feel after a night of heavy drinking and of course, I used the excuse to go for a fry up on Sunday! We took a
The post title sounds oh so dramatic. As I mentioned in a previous post, I have been dealing with some skin changes this Winter. Out of nowhere, BAM, facial dermatitis. Something I have never suffered from before but has really brought out every insecurity in me. It's my face. I can't hide it. People can see
On a whim we booked a weekend city break to Oslo. Ryanair had one of their fab deals and we snagged return tickets for around £20 each! Of course you need to think of airport transfers and accommodation after that but you can't turn your nose up at the prospect of travel for £20.
Baby, it's cold outside. Since the temperature dropped, I have been living in a permanent slumber of peppermint tea and wooly tights (or wooly anything). Who's with me?! Over the past week I have been reminiscing over holiday photos from Summer (Why do I do this? It's self torture!) and this dress really stood out to me
How do you feel about surprise trips? Surprises in general.. do they fill you with fear or excitement? If you like them, this Surprise Trips competition may be for you. Peter and I have been together for almost 9 years, surprises are generally few and far between these days but we both have a love
You may remember my do I/don't I with these pair of embroidered jeans. Do I love them or hate them? Well, the trend is still here and I have well and truly jumped aboard! I bought these gorgeous New Look jeans a couple of weeks ago and you cannot pry them off my legs. (Writing this, I may
We had 10 days booked for our stay in Los Angeles and although we have seen a lot of people hotel hopping (which looks fantastic), we wanted an all rounder. Somewhere that would tick all the boxes and involved minimal effort on our part so that we could enjoy the time we had. After
We are back from LA and I am absolutely desperado to get away again! This world is just too big to sit at home dreaming. My thoughts are that I am planning to do a mixture of travel, food and outfit posts of my time away with Peter. I want to do it as much for my own
Eek! Tomorrow we fly to LA. My head is abuzz with the thought of packing, outfits, what books to take, where will we go? What have I not done that I should have? Everyone does this, right? It's totally normal to be this anxious before a holiday. Along with those I am considering the details..
Dishoom is one of those places I had walked past a couple of times, it caught my eye, I looked at the website but never had a chance to go in. While me and Peter were in London we thought breakfast would be a great opportunity to visit, so on a bright and sunny day
With all the social media around us these days, it was getting harder to ignore all the perfect beach bodies I was seeing and I looked into a couple of workout programmes and settled on the Kayla Itsines BBG (Bikini Body Guide). As I mentioned in my Bucket List I have wanted to work towards that body i've
I was really interested in going to the chain SMOKE BBQ. Forget cutlery (of course, optional) and get stuck in! I am partial to a rough and ready meal. It doesn't have to be fancy and Instagram ready if the flavour is there. And, who doesn't like barbecue food? Based on West Regent Street in
