Fathers Day is the celebration of all of the amazing Dads around the world. And it’s coming up soon; 15th June in case you didn’t know! My Dad is really, really, great. I don’t really know what I’d do without him. He helps me out so much with pretty much every aspect of my life. He’s really handy, so he’s forever fixing my car, changing my light bulbs, mending things I manage to break. He even gives me lifts to the…

Don’t forget Mothers Day this year.. it’s on the 30th March! I’ll be on holiday on the day, so I’ve prepared my Mums gifts early for her to open whilst I’m away. I’m also thinking about making her a little girlie at home afternoon tea party with my sister and my little niece this weekend. Cutting up little finger sandwiches, baking some scones and cakes, and getting out all of the pretty china I insist on collecting! I’ve also got her…

I tried to remain as calm as possible when I found out I won this amazing new phone on Twitter! I won the new HTC One phone from Carphone Warehouse from their Twitter page. It’s in their exclusive ‘vivid blue’ colour which I absolutely love, it’s so bold and pretty! It’s worth £639 apparently, which is a bit mental, and I pray to baby Jesus that I don’t lose or break it! I was particularly excited because I’d been putting up…

If this year you will be Christmas shopping for someone and you’re not quite sure what to get them, then here are a couple of super simple ideas to suit anyone. Especially if you need to buy for slightly distant family members who might be a little bit difficult to buy for, or you simply aren’t sure what to get them. I think fail safe gifts would be a beautiful bouquet of flowers, or a Christmas food hamper, which could be…
