My First Home: The Bedroom

In my last blog post on my new flat I did a little tour of my kitchen, so now I'm doing the same again but this time it's on my new bedroom! The bedroom is quite small and also a bit of a funny shape, so when I first started moving my stuff in I was a bit worried about how it would all fit in and how it would be best laid out. But in the end with a lot of shuffling of things around, here it is!

A Weekend Away in Kingston Upon Thames

A few weeks ago we had a lovely relaxing break visiting Kingston Upon Thames and nearby town Richmond. We had such a nice couple of days walking around and we were so lucky with the weather! We stayed at the four star Mitre Hotel in East Molesey which is next to the River Thames and also right opposite Hampton Court Palace.

Life After Graduating & My New Job!

This is a blog post that I've been wanting to put together for a while now and was recently inspired by Sophie's blog post on 'job-hopping'. Six years ago I graduated from University College Birmingham with a 2:1 degree in Tourism Business Management (don't ask). A long time ago now! Once I had finished my three years of studying I spent a summer season working in Disney World Florida at Blizzard Beach waterpark (I blogged about it here) and started blogging 'properly'.

Getting Cosy for Winter: How to Ensure a Good Nights Sleep *

Now I've finally settled into my new home I've been enjoying buying new bedding in the correct size for my king size bed, as all my old bedding was only double size so was too small. I always think it's important to buy good quality bedding as you want it to last as well as being comfortable. After all, the bed is possibly the most important place in the home!
