Current beauty favourites

(AD/gifted) This post contains gifted product and affiliate links. 

I haven't shared a favourites post in a long, long time, but I think it's time to talk beauty again. Skincare and self care in general are a huge part of my daily routine and I often share my current favourites on Instagram stories, but a blog post was well overdue. So here are some of my latest beauty must haves.

With so many things to consider when giving your home a face lift, it’s difficult to pinpoint exactly what you want the end product to look like. Do you want a classic look throughout? Maybe a more modern feel, or an amalgamation of the two? 
Even then there are so many styles and finishes to consider that it can be overwhelming. If you’re looking for some guidance, here we talk through the art deco interior essentials for your kitchen, living room and bedroom. 
Art deco was the predominant decorative style of the 1920s and 1930s. Characterized by bold geometric shapes and strong colours that remain so popular in today’s homes, if that sounds like a bit of you, then keep reading!

My current jewellery favourites

(Ad/PR- this post contains PR samples and affiliate links)

If you remember how my blog actually started, you will know that I was obsessed with jewellery and jewellery making and wanted to share my favourite purchases and things I made myself. It was fun and a perfect hobby. I am happy to report, that I still adore jewellery, but I tend to go for more subtle styles, suitable for everyday wear. Since I recently treated myself to some lovely pieces for my ears and was also  kindly sent a beautiful necklace by Daisy, it was a perfect excuse for me to do an old school haul and show you what I got.

AD (guest post): Springtime Cleaning Blues

AD (GUEST POST)

The frost is off the ground in the mornings and the wet paw and footprints are about to be replaced with the return of the dreaded muddy prints. That means your wooden floors, carpets, rugs and tiles are about to become the bane of your existence and one of the biggest downers of the changing of the seasons. Your kids won't always remember to wipe their feet or take their shoes off and those clothes, wipes, mops and sponges are about to join the rest of the rubbish on a daily basis.


With the changing of the seasons maybe it's time for a changing of the guard when it comes to your home.

Valentine's Day in lockdown (AD/gifted)

This post contains gifted items (AD/GIFTED) and affiliate links

Let's be honest... Valentine's Day during a global pandemic is not something I ever thought I would experience, but we've now celebrated birthdays, our 10 year anniversary and more during lockdown, so I'm used to it at this point, haha. I actually love Valentine's Day, even more now as a mum, because I always prepare a fun Valentine's Day breakfast for the kids too, pancakes, heart shaped toppings and lots of fresh cream, hot chocolates and cute decorations everywhere. This year the plan is the same and for me and Scott, it will be some lovely gin cocktails and a candlelit dinner maybe, if the kids let us, haha. I was kindly sent a few gifts from Moonpig to make our Valentine’s Day even more special and I’m really looking forward to having a low key lockdown celebration.

How to stay motivated and on track with daily workouts

How to stay motivated and on track with daily workouts

Hi everyone! Long time no... blog?  Haha. I know, I know... I haven’t blogged at all in 2020, but I’m forgiven, right? Pandemic and all... If you follow me on Instagram, you might already know that I dedicated the whole of 2020 to self care, fitness and working on myself. It was blissful! I trained to climb Ben Nevis and I did it in September and it was the best feeling ever! In the process, I lost 120lbs and I look like a different person, but this is not about weightloss. And guess what? That’s the key to changing your mindset! Let me give you all the tips for staying consistent, finding motivation and moving your body for reasons other than weightloss!
