April Instagram Favourites

Wow! April has been crazy and it hasn’t stopped in May, but it has been crazy in a good way, busy with work and in my personal life, which means I have travelled the country, a lot. It started more relaxing, as Craig and I finally used my birthday present voucher he bought me and…

My Favourite Flapjack Recipe

Flapjack is without doubt one of my favourite things to eat, besides probably only cookies. I often choose it when I am eating in a coffee shop or elsewhere. However, I have never found one I like more than the recipe my Mum has taught me to use. It is the right balance between being…

My bucket list…

I feel as though I am not alone when I say that experiences are much better than things, which is why I often try to spend my money on experiences. Its for this reason that I have decided to create a bucket list. To have a list of experiences I want to complete in my…

Keep Calm and Carry On

The last few weeks have been so busy both personally and at work for me, sometime it is easy for everything to just take over and become a little too much. I know that I always try to seem composed, but often, find myself like a swan. Calm and composed on the outside, but on…

What makes me happy

This week started with International Happiness Day and I was very pleased to see such a day existed. It is always good to draw attention to happiness and it made me sit and think about the little things which make me happy. There are obviously bigger things such as my family and friends, but when…

Exploring Manchester

It has taken 2 years of my uncle and auntie living in Manchester for me to finally visit. I had a long weekend with them in the city and loved every second of it. We managed to squeeze so much into such a short period of time (especially a lot of food and drink!)¬†and Manchester…

Favourite January moments…

Following one of my goals to take more photos in 2017, I have been working to get more of my favourite moments on my Instagram feed, so that I can look back on them and reminisce my favourite moments from the year. I have stuck to this and posted much more often throughout January. I…

Beauty Pic ‘n’ Mix

A new discovery for me this week was the Feel Unique Pic ‘n’ Mix service. For anyone that hasn’t heard of it, it is a fabulous new idea they have in which you can order 5 sample products per month, as and when you want. All you have to do is pay for the postage,…

Celebrating being 21.

This month I turned 21. I thought I would feel really old as I did when I turned 19 and 20 but for some reason 21 just didn’t bother me as much. Perhaps, because I’ve spent much of the time celebrating with my family and friends. I’ve been so busy perhaps I haven’t quite stopped…
