What would you do if you won the lottery?

What you’d do if you won the lottery has more than likely crossed your mind at some point. Probably when you were stuck in traffic on the morning commute or unable to afford something luxurious you saw. It’s all so tempting to think that with just one ticket, your life has the potential to change forever! View Post

26 years and 26 goals

26 years and 26 goals

Last week, I celebrated my 26th birthday. I can’t believe that this year, my husband and I have been together for a whole decade! I’m also very scared of how close I’m getting to the big three-oh. It feels like time has just flown terrifyingly fast since I left school.

Anyway, it seems like a good time to set some goals for the following year. So, why not do that cliché blogger thing and think of 26 as that’s how many years I’ve been on the planet? View Post

Meeting the Duchess of Cambridge with Family Action

Meeting the Duchess of Cambridge with Family Action

Last Tuesday, Autumn and I both had what was probably a once in a lifetime experience. We were asked to attend a (non blog related) event with Family Action. The VIP guest was none other than our future Queen, the Duchess of Cambridge!

CHECK Meat and Two Veg Challenge

As many of you will know, no doubt as you kiss a furry face, it is Movember this month! For anyone who isn’t aware, for the duration of November, many men (and some women) grow a moustache to raise awareness of men’s health! This can cover mental health, but also prostate and testicular cancers.

This is where HECK Sausages come in. This month, they have renamed themselves CHECK “in order to encourage men to search for lumps on their scrotum and for women to CHECK their partners too!”

CHECK Heck sausages, Movember

October Charity Challenges: The Outcome

October Charity Challenges: The Outcome

 

Last month, I decided that I was going to challenge myself to help three charities. October was a lot more hectic than I anticipated, but I still managed to support all three of them. However, my promotion of that was a little lacklustre I feel. Still, I’m still fairly new to the world of ‘proper’ blogging. As such, it’s another experience to learn from and make better for next time! I always try to help at least one charity each year, and if I can use my blogging voice to do that then that is amazing.

Anyway, without further ado, here is how I did: View Post
