Oh my goodness, the last 4+ months have been nothing short of FULL ON. It all started around March-time with my Cousins hen party in Chester, followed swiftly by her wedding in Malta. Then I have had a few blogging conferences, a Christening in Leeds, a week away on a family holiday in Greece, my Sister’s hen party in Birmingham, a…

This years BritMums Live 2016 weekend clashed with my two Nephew’s Christening in Leeds. So, like the mad-woman that I am, I thought that I would attempt to do both of them in the one weekend. I dashed away from the blogging event in London late on Saturday afternoon to meet Hubby and the twins half-way as they were en-route to Yorkshire on Saturday evening. After…

One of the aspects that I love the most about living in the countryside (aside from the quiet, laid-back way of living – away from the hustle and bustle) is the changing seasons. We have now been living here in the Worcestershire countryside for almost a whole year now. It is completely different to rural North Wales (our previous home)…

My Sister is going for…

Last week we were dressed in boots and coats (there was actually some snow in places) and all feeling a bit glum with the cold…and then this weekend we were basking in…

It’s true that my friends have had a huge impact on my happiness throughout my life. And this has been even more so since I became a Mum nearly 4 years ago. Since becoming a Mum of twins my friends have provided me with support and joy…and MOST definitely prevented loneliness and isolation for me. I have talked before about how my friends have been…

I’ve mentioned before that even though the majority of my own personal reading is done via blogs online, that I still like to flick through a magazine for ideas and inspiration on style. When I was travelling to Malta recently it was nice to buy a few magazines, sit down and read them; looking at the glossy photo’s and articles.

When I was introduced to Sex and The City (SATC) through a girl-friend right at the end of the 90’s (who told me I just *had* to watch it) I couldn’t believe how much I loved it and how much it got a hold of me. I was then a young woman in my 20’s, having just left Uni. I…
