My John Lewis & Partners Personal Styling Experience

I admit it when John Lewis and Partners was launched into Cheltenham, I felt the hype was too much. It would be like any other John Lewis department store, the plus side was the new jobs for people and increase the footfall for the town centre. In the early days of the store opening, for…

The New Year

Every year I write something about the new year and the year ahead. Last years failings happened maybe two weeks into 2018 where realistically working out with a 6-month-old baby at home was not going to work for me. In hindsight, I realise I should have joined a yoga group or something and what it…

Vintage Cleaning Solutions – My No.1 Go To For Sinks

I admit this is not a homemade recipe but I absolutely could not have this solution in my cupboard. It is something my grandparents always used to use, I remember the smell as a little girl. It smelt of their kitchen sink. Sounding a bit weird? Trust me, this stuff amazing even if you find…

The New Year and Really The New You?

I can immediately put my hands up and say I have not stuck to a New Years resolution, I have always found an excuse or a reason not to continue with the promises I make myself. Before it was because of work commitments or I did not have the time, if I am honest it…

Copyrighting your Photographs

It is the sad truth that nothing is safe now. A harsh lesson I learnt recently, I was worried I was being overly sensitive but after talking to a friend who was a photographer, I realised I was not. We add our photographs to so many social media channels now, Instagram, Twitter, Tumblr and Pinterest…

My Top 10 British TV Series of All Time

Now, I move to Tv series, as bingeing box sets is the perfect way to unwind on a rainy weekend and as the autumn nights draw in what a perfect way to snuggle up. Some on Netflix, Sky (if you have Sky obviously) or maybe the traditional Blu-Ray or DVD you get at Christmas. I…

Week 23 – Gratitude Challenge – Things I like about Autumn

I have been so excited to write this post, as most of you know I love the Autumn. The beautiful colours of the changing leaves, wrapping up warm, pumpkin spiced everything and the comfort foods.
