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’. Me graduating in 2011, and me in my snazzy Disney work uniform compete with baseball cap! Once I…

So on 1st September I became a very proud home owner! *Cue awful cheesy photo of me holding up keys in front of front door*. Soon I plan to do another blog post about the buying process that I went through, along with a timeline on how long it took. But for now I just wanted to show you the place! I first viewed the property back in May and I fell in love with it right away. It was the first (and only!) place that I viewed, and I was lucky that the owner was after a quick sale…

My first ever blog post was published on 3rd April 2010 and was a pretty useless piece of ‘content’.  In almost 7 years it has still only amassed 655 views.  In a time before Pinterest, I used to browse the web and save tonnes of photos of things I thought were cute or pretty to my little laptop hard drive. When my hard drive got full, I decided to upload all of the photos I had saved onto this very blog! I did it for myself, and I never thought anyone would ever see these uploads of lots of cakes…

My birthday was a couple of weeks ago now, but I thought I’d do a little run down blog post of all the things I did! As I’m getting old now there was no major party or anything, but I had a really lovely few days with colleagues, family and friends. My actual birthday was on a Saturday and therefore my ‘work birthday’ was on the Friday! In true office tradition I brought in some cake for the whole building to feast upon. I brought in home made Victoria Sponge cake and a lemon drizzle cake. Both of which seemed…

So a couple of months back I got my first ever tattoos! I kept the whole thing a bit quiet and didn’t actually tell anyone I was going to get them as I wasn’t sure if I was going to go through with it. It’s something I’d thought about for a little while but always thought tattoos aren’t really my style and they wouldn’t suit me.  Just after getting the tattoos done  |  During inking Once I got myself booked in at a local tattoo studio I was sure it was something I wanted and I felt it was a…

So.. on the 19th September it was the long awaited wedding day for my big sister Krissy and her new hubby Dave! My darling sis planned the whole event single handedly as she wanted everything to be just how she had always dreamed. And to be honest the day was perfect and couldn’t have gone any better! I thought I’d do a quick run down and include some photos from the big day. Doesn’t my sister look so beautiful?! I was a bridesmaid, along with my niece Lara and my little nephew Joseph. My sister, Lara and I spent the…
