As much as I love Christmas time, and the weeks leading up to the big day, I’m not the biggest fan of the actual day itself. I live at home with just my parents and we have a pretty chilled out morning, and then my sister and her family come over later on for dinner. We haven’t got a large family so I don’t have many people to buy for (luckily!) so present opening time goes pretty quickly, and then the…

var noskimwords = ‘true’; I don’t want anything too extravagant for Christmas this year, but here are some lovely bits and pieces that have caught my eye recently. I’m always a fan of new lingerie, and this pretty set from Matalan is such a good deal. The bra is long line which is always a must for me, and the set is only £15!

I was so excited when I was asked by Not On The High Street to take part in their Blogger Secret Santa! It’s less than one month until Christmas.. eek!

I’ve recently discovered Netflix so I’ve been glued to my Apple iPad watching TV shows all weekend.. mainly trying to get into Breaking Bad (and failing) and loving Louis Theroux documentaries! It’s amazing how…

So a few months ago me and Terri thought it would be a great idea to volunteer to work at Leeds Festival with a company called Hot Box Events. And last week we packed up all our camping gear and excitedly drove to Leeds to pitch our tent for 5 nights of fun! Unfortunately, when we got there we had to queue for four hours just to get our wristbands from the poxy little staff office. This put a little dampener…
