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’m also after a new fleecy pretty dressing gown, but I haven’t spied one of those yet. But for me, undies, slippers, pyjamas and dressing gowns are always much appreciated! I love to keep snug! Which…

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! As part of the challenge I got to pick gifts worth up to £30 for three other bloggers. I love Not On The High Street, they have a fantastic range of beautifully made and original products, and I think they’re the perfect Christmas gift shop. If you’ve heard of them before, they are an online marketplace that brings together 3,800 independent small UK businesses. I don’t think I’m allowed to…

So the weekend following halloween Terri and I head into Birmingham city centre to spend the night at the amazing Staying Cool Apartments. They are 5 star self serviced apartments right in the middle of the city, at the 1960’s Rotunda building.

The apartment Terri had arranged was on the 19th floor with an amazing view over the whole city. We had a mini apartment which was more than spacious enough for us both, with a…

So this weekend has been a fairly lazy one. My parents have been away on holiday so I had the house to myself which was nice! To be honest I spent the majority of the time in my nice new pyjamas, in bed with fresh bedding relaxing! 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 time flies when you don’t get out of bed all day haha. I thought when I first got my…

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 on our spirits, but it wasn’t that bad really! We spent the first night wondering around investigating, and then…

My birthday was over two weeks ago now (can you believe August is almost over?!) and I’m a little bit behind with my blog posts! But I just wanted to show you some of the nice things I got for my birthday 🙂 Here’s a few little bits from my parents, they got me a pretty blouse, a floral phone case, a Cath Kidston make up bag, and also a nice big backpack to take to Leeds festival! I also got the Cath Kidston Strawberry print day bag and matching skirt that I wanted 🙂 I adore them! A few…
