Things about South Wales which I still don’t get

I’ve lived in South Wales for over 5 years, but there are still some things I don’t understand.  I’m from North Wales, and of course there’s a bit of rivalry between us from the North and the locals of South Wales.  Today I’m going to tell you what still confuses me as a Northerner living […]

Things I’m looking forward to in October

Instead of looking back at September and telling you about my favourites, I thought I’d try looking ahead at October and telling you what I’m looking forward to this month. Bath time I have some gorgeously smelling new Imperial Leather bath cremes, which I’m excited to use, and at £1 each in Boots, they’re a […]

My pet peeves

It’s a sign that you’re a blogger; something annoys you and you feel compelled to write a blog post about it!  Here’s a list of things have been getting under my skin lately. People suggesting I straighten my hair I haven’t straightened my hair that much recently, it’s just so much easier to let it […]

Three tips for charity shopping graphic

Three tips for charity shopping

I love a good rummage through a charity shop.  A few years ago, I wouldn’t have dreamed of setting foot in one, but times have definitely changed and I’ve found some of my favourite clothes in charity shops.  You’re also donating to a good cause and shopping more ethically.  Shopping AND saving the planet? What’s […]

A-Z of Me

I first saw this post on Aimee’s blog and it was so much fun to read, I had to complete it too! A. Age – 30.  It’s an age that polarises people; some don’t want to be that old, others wish they could be that young again! B. Biggest fear – I have two, spiders […]

Feeling inspired by Martyn Hett

I didn’t post this directly after Martyn’s funeral, because I really wanted to make this something that I would be proud of writing, and also to make it a fitting tribute to Martyn. Martyn Hett was one of the people killed during the recent Manchester terrorist attack at an Ariana Grande concert.  Although there were […]

Q & A with Maggie the guinea pig

Recently I asked some blogger friends if they had any questions to ask Maggie, my guinea pig.  It’s taken a while to get round to interviewing Maggie and writing this post; Maggie has a busy social life and as a guinea pig around town, I had to wait for her to clear an afternoon for […]

June Favourites

I don’t usually write posts like this but I thought it might be good for me to look back over the things which made me happy in June. Black handbag Oliver won a prize in a raffle, and the sweetheart decided to bring this gorgeous bag home for me rather than choosing a prize for […]

Prince Harry: reckless or relatable? graphic

Prince Harry: reckless or relatable?

My purpose in writing today’s post about Prince Harry is to approach it not as a debate on the monarchy, but rather by examining his comments in light of his position as a high profile figure. Whenever Prince Harry makes a public comment, it’s bound to be scrutinised, judged and debated.  He’s bound to be […]

Friendship in all its forms

Today I am writing this spontaneously because I’ve been thinking about it over the last few days and just need to write it out.  First off I’m going to be honest and say that I’ve had a tough few months, and there are a few more ahead.  However, what I want to focus on in […]
