We’re nearing the end of October now and by this time next week the ‘C word’ will be next month! Yes folks, I’m afraid that Christmas is exactly two months away now! As such, I’m beginning to get prepared. I’d hoped that my lounge would be redecorated by now, but we do have a new sofa coming which should arrive in time. If I choose Christmas decorations in the right colour scheme this year, they’ll be ready for when everything looks much lovelier for Christmas 2018.
Making the home ready for Christmas and choosing decorations is something I really enjoy. Every year as a child and teenager, I remember helping my mum to select a few new decorations for the tree. She always puts so much effort into making Christmas feel extra special and her tree always looks fantastic. Even if I don’t buy anything, I always have to go to the local garden centres each year to admire their displays. Recently I’ve been browsing on Cox & Cox‘s website and I’ve put together a whole wishlist! View Post
Still on a high from Blog On Xmas in Manchester, I was excited for my second bloggers event! It was an evening event which took place at the beautiful, historic Layer Marney Tower in Colchester, Essex last Thursday.
I’m a sucker for pretty old buildings and I was delighted to see beautiful wooden beams on the ceiling as I walked in.
I’d heard a lot about Blog On before buying a ticket, not least the rumours about amazing goody bags! I’d met a few bloggers before at the press launch of This Morning Live, but I hadn’t been to a blogging event as such. It was a long 7 month wait for Blog On Xmas after buying my ticket in February, but it didn’t seem to take long to come round!
I was racked with nerves as I left my hotel to go to Hotel Football for the conference, but I needn’t have been as I had one of the best days ever! I’ve never been ‘oop north’ before, so that’s something ticked off of my list of things to do before I’m 30! It was totally worth the 5 hour journey from Kent, even though I did get home past midnight and felt an absolute wreck the next day. If you are thinking about going to a Blog On event next year, I wholeheartedly recommend it and was glad I chose it for my first blogging event. Here are my highlights of the day: View Post
If you’ve been reading my blog, you’ll have seen that I like to participate in blogger tags from time to time. They’re just a bit of fun to find out more about the person behind the blog. Thank you to Debbie at My Chaotically Eclectic Life for tagging me!

A few weeks ago, one of my best friends went to Bluewater and saw the following advert for black pantyliners in a changing room:
She took a photo of it and sent it to our Facebook messenger group. A whole conversation ensued. Why were Bodyform making black liners? It almost seemed like it was something that could be an April fool. However, it is actually a real product! View Post
