I don’t often post about being healthy and keeping fit etc as I’ve never been a ‘slim’ girl and that’s mainly (completely) due to me having a sweet tooth and generally being lazy. If there’s cake going around the office, I’ll eat it, and if there’s an option to take transport instead of walking, I’ll take it. Saying that, I’ve never been too unhappy with my body, but although I don’t think I’m ‘fat’ (whatever that is classed as), I know I could be better. I’m always looking at ways of toning up or losing weight, even looking at body…

This blog post is going to be shorter than I had anticipated as it appears hardly any of the photos I took came out properly. Isn’t it annoying when that happens? Every bloggers worst nightmare; so much time wasted on standing posing like a lemon and shouting at your Dad to take another photo at a different angle! Anyway, I recently enjoyed a lovely family day out in Oxfordshire with my parents, Auntie, Uncle, and cousins. We went for a little walk along The Ridgeway to English Heritage site Wayland’s Smithy. You won’t catch me wearing proper walking attire and…

I’m forever adding new things to my bedroom to make it more cosy for me and kitty, and recently I gained two new additions. I’ve never had a ‘proper’ set of curtains up in my room before as I could never find any that fit my colour scheme. So I had actually sewed a double bed sheet into curtains which I had up for over 5 years! They weren’t too bad to be honest, but as they were quite thin they let a lot of light in as they weren’t lined.  So ta da! Now I have a stunning new…

As I’m sure most of you are already aware (especially if you follow me on Instagram!) you will seldom find me wearing anything but a skirt or dress (or PJ’s!). I tend to shy away from wearing trousers, and I genuinely can’t even remember the last time I wore a pair! I sometimes give a pair of jeggings a whirl, but generally I just do not find jeans flattering on me, nor comfortable.  But when George asked me to try a pair of their new Wonderfit jeans, I thought they sounded perfect! I saw there were plenty of 5 star…

I had been using my old HTC phone for almost 2 years when it was beginning to play up. I decided it was finally time for me to get myself a new mobile, so I decided to treat myself to the new Samsung Galaxy S6. I bought it sim-free from Amazon for £409, and I decided to go for the 32GB white version (also comes in gold and black). I have to admit, I’m a bit of a tech-n00b when it comes to smartphones. I’m not one of these people who wants to constantly upgrade to the latest iPhone (I…

As I live at home with my parents I don’t have all the say on the decor in the house, but I tend to come up with a lot of the ideas. Ever since I was little I have always loved decorating rooms and I used to say I wanted to be an interior designer when I grew up. Although I am currently far from doing that as a career, I do enjoy doing a bit of home renovating now and again with my parents. My parents have quite opposite tastes in style; my Dad prefers the simplistic minimalist look…
