CHRISTMAS GIFT GUIDE: FOODIE FIENDS

Ola it’s Friday and hope everyone is ready for the weekend?! It’s time for another post and another gift guide this time one for the foodie fiends. Literally my favourite thing to write about, like ever. So, if you know anyone like me and all they do is think about food, dream about food and eat food then I have some fab present ideas!   Some of my proudest creations I have made come from cookbooks, and although I can’t take the credit for them they have been the tastiest…

#MERRIERTOGETHER WITH MOONPIG

#MERRIERTOGETHER WITH MOONPIG

Generally, I must admit I am one of those people who likes to leave Christmas to the last-minute. I hate Nov Christmas ads with a passion and when they started so early this year I felt fire burn within me! Maybe it’s the years spent working on the Coca Cola Christmas truck, or the fact my papa is a complete and utter Scrooge. I just believe it all comes around a lot earlier than needs be. However, last weekend I was invited to Moonpig’s Christmas event making me feel less…

CACTUS CRAZY WITH MUSTARD *

CACTUS CRAZY WITH MUSTARD *

Let’s be honest hands up who isn’t a stationary mad?! Being a blogger, a student, and crafty crazy I’m a sucker for a pretty piece of kit to help with my organisational life! I’ve already mentioned Mustard before and how much I love it’s colourfully unique pieces. Well, my love for them has just grown! The other week I received a beautiful package filled with succulent stationary to make my desk and pencil case look on point. As a trainee teacher, I go into placement next week. We all must have…

DREAMY DECOR AND PRETTY PINS WITH OLD ENGLISH COMPANY *

I always like to imagine the time when I’ll own my own home. In fact I can’t wait for the day!  Yep, I have made it my mission that when I have my own little cosy space I will fill it with lush prints and delicious candles along with fairy lights galore and spiky succulents. Flicking through the Old English Company site has given me the perfect inspiration of how I would want to cover my bricks and mortar. I would actually just like to fill my rooms with its…

NEW HOUSE ESSENTIALS *

NEW HOUSE ESSENTIALS *

There are good and bad points in moving house. For me, someone who had moved house more times than lived in years, I literally can’t wait to settle into my own real home! I hate packing, deciding what to keep and what not to keep and you guessed it I hate unpacking! Yet, a new home means so many great things! It may be your first time buy or the retirement buy when the kids and flown the nest and it’s time to downsize! What ever it may be putting…

GOING BANANAS THIS SUMMER WITH MUSTARD *

GOING BANANAS THIS SUMMER WITH MUSTARD *

If there is one thing I love the most about Summer it’s being able to enjoy the outdoors! Reading, writing and eating!  It’s good for the body and for the mind. If I could, I would spend all day, everyday laying in the sun! My favourite thing has to be dining Al Fresco though! Whether it’s in restaurants, in the great outdoors or a simple picnic style. What makes picnics even better is having the cutest tuppawear around! Mustard is making me literally go bananas…over it’s quirky snack boxes and accessories!…

THE IMPORTANCE OF PEN AND PAPER WITH #NATIONALSTATIONERYWEEK

In this day and age we live in a digital era, most of what we do in our daily lives revolve around technology and traditional means are slowly fading away! Instead of writing letters we send a quick text, postcards are replaced by Instagram posts, cheques are now wireless transfers  (that is unless your my nana who refuses to step into the world on online banking). Don’t get me wrong the advances of technology have so many positive notes and brought convenience into our lives. We are able to contact…
