Notts has got a lot of things associated with it, from Robin Hood to lace and mr Boots himself (all hail the king of highstreet beauty, am I right?) to crazy things like calling people duck and bacon rolls cobs. It is a cob, by the way. I’m 100% a Nottingham girl now and a cob shop is one of the best inventions ever – hands down.
When it comes to charity projects, there are a whole host of fulfilling and amazing opportunities for you choose from. If you can spare some time for a worthwhile cause, you should definitely consider signing up to help someone. Apart from making a huge difference to others, you could also find that you’re able to improve yourself as a person – especially where your confidence is concerned.
The year runs away with us so quickly, doesn’t it? All of a sudden it’s September at the end of the week and we’re only a few months away from Christmas and then the dreaded New Year’s Eve rolls around and it’s back to making resolutions we might not keep. Stress!
I’ve had a think about the things that I want to achieve by the end of 2017. This year’s gone so, so quickly for me as I’m sure it has for everyone else but I’m determined to get some stuff done over the next few weeks and months!
Looking for a fresh way to decorate your home? Why not get inspired by nature, and bring the outdoors in? It works for kitchens, bathrooms, living rooms, bedrooms, wherever you want to use it.

Yuhuh, I went there. Jon Snow, who? Sorry to all you hardcore GoT fans I’m just not down. It’s not that I don’t *like* it – I just wasn’t into it when it first kicked off and now you guys are so far in I couldn’t possibly catch up. Dungeons and dragons just aren’t really my thing so it was never going to be a huge hit with me. BUT. This is not to say that I don’t love me a good series. I do, and I’m going to tell you what’s hot in my world when it comes to binge watching.
For most people, their home is their haven. Somewhere they can relax when things get them down. At home, you can truly relax, be yourself and do what you want, when you want, right? Totally.
Looking after your home is really important. It is an investment in yourself and can have a huge impact on your general well-being. The way you decorate can be particularly important. It has a big impact on the feeling of each room. Let’s look at how to decorate in a way that creates a feel-good ambience that will help you to relax and recharge your batteries.
Money is always a tricky subject. We always want more. We don’t like what things cost. We have to pay for certain stuff. The list goes on. What I’ve come to realise as I’ve become a proper adult is I’m actually really good with money. I’m not sure where it’s come from (probs good parenting, holla at you Mumma) but I know what I’ve got and I know what I can spend. Here are my three ways to be better with money because in my opinion, I’ve got it nailed.
During our recent visit to Rethymno, Platanias and Chania in Crete we did some pretty awesome things. We’re not the usual sit around the pool holiday-makers. Of course, we love to relax but we also love to get out and so some fun and exciting activities that we can’t do at home. Here are three of the best things to do if you ever venture to north Crete!
Inspiration is a huge thing to me. But, there are so many things that people demonise these days like Instagram, the internet and hashtags like #inspo because they’re bad for people’s self confidence. I totally agree that it goes too far sometimes but I think that Instagram and Pinterest especially can be amazing for motivation and inspiration for yourself!
