Things I don’t understand

You’ve read the title, now let’s jump into it. I don’t understand why society tells women how to dress and behave in order to avoid sexual attacks. How about, I don’t know, we um…. bring up our boys to understand rape and violence against women is wrong???!!! A woman can be wearing a trench coat or […]

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.

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 graphic

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 […]
