Sorry if this is a boring post, but I’ve been whinging and whining for a while now about wanting a new camera, specifically a bridge for my blogging. I was thinking of getting a Fujifilm, and I was kindly sent a SL240 on loan to test out. However, after giving it a go I just didn’t get along with it. The 24x zoom lens on it is fantastic, but I couldn’t adjust the colour to look natural. I took the photo of the fox at the end of this post with the Fuji so you can see the excellent zoom.…

Last week I headed over to Birmingham again to go for another blogger event. This time it was at my favourite department store Selfridges!

I’m far from perfect, but I love experimenting with so many different ways of cake decorating and baking different flavours of cakes.

Nothing too fancy, just simple, traditional English cakes and bakes 🙂 I’ve pretty much set it…

I was mega excited when I received an email from Moneysupermarket offering me a chance to take part in their Secret Santa Challenge! The idea is that they gave £25 to bloggers to then go and buy a Secret Santa present for a fellow blogger. They assigned us each a secret santa partner within the same blog niche, and then we were free to spend! I was partnered with Gemma Louise from Champagne Lifestyle, Student Budget, a politics student from Belfast. Gemma Louise runs a fashion and beauty blog which aims to inspire people on any budget, and encourage culture…
