8 Life Lessons I Learnt From Being 28

I’m feeling some what reflective this morning. I only have a couple of days left of being 28 – before I enter the last year of my twenties. As we get older we tend to change our behaviours, feelings and thoughts about life in general. When you’ve been through life changing events it can be hard to navigate where to…

Please Stop Asking Me When I’m Going To Have …

I’m sure a lot of newlyweds are going to feel me on this one. The dreaded question, “When are you having kids?” Joe and I have been married almost 2 years and together 8. After you say ‘I do’, everyone expects you to fall pregnant shortly after. I’m relatively happy living my life as it is. I have a good…

There I Said It… I Miss The Old Blogging Days

Bit of a controversial topic to put out there isn’t it, but it’s true, I do miss the old blogging days! When everything wasn’t about sponsored posts, free products, events and money.

September Goals

September has suddenly crept up on us hasn’t it, nevertheless I am oh so ready for Autumn. Cosy nights in, wooly knits and sipping hot chocolates. Pure bliss. Looking back on last month’s goals, I feel like I had a some-what super productive month and achieved more or less most of my goals. My blog has had a make-over and…
