Father's Day Fragrance Gift Guide

June 15th is Father’s Day just in case you’ve forgotten, it’s tomorrow! I’ve put together a last minute gift guide for you showcasing a few great fragrances that you can pick up for your dad.

I noticed the other day that Boots have some great fragrance offers on so I’ve made this post about fragrance and aftershave. This Davidoff one is only £19.99 down from about £40 I think so it’s half price and smells lovely, it’s quite a sophisticated scent, so perfect so smart daddies. They also have a fab offer on Lacoste Red, 75ml for £24.99, which is a really good deal too.

First Home Wishlist

So, our new house is all you’ll hear me talking about at the moment but sorry, not sorry! So exciting. Anyway, a new house wouldn’t be complete without a little wish list would it? I’m dying to get a DAB digital radio, preferably a beautiful retro/vintage looking one like the Roberts radios in the pretty pastel colours. Next up, pretty plates are always a must for when people come over for tea of course and these Cath Kidston ones are just perfectly pretty. I’ve also got some CK towels in the mix there, I’m loving polka dots at the moment. On the china/crockery note, Luke needs an L mug because I’ve got an A one and it’s my favourite!

New Home Update!

This is the little place that is going to be keeping up so busy for the next few weeks, perhaps months! It’s a lovely little terrace but it needs some serious TLC. We’re talking full on paint job and  a lot of filler. So I’m hoping to do a few before, during and after photos for a little interiors series! Here’s a pic heavy post of the damage that needs repairing, ha! But we hope to have it up and running really soon and turn it into our beautiful first home.

Blogging Essentials!

We all know that blogging requires you to spend quite a lot of time in front of your laptop and doing various tasks such as answering emails, writing posts, editing photos and never ending tweeting! Blogging requires some essential pieces of kit, laptop, obviously, camera, obviously and I like to have countless notepads, coloured pens and organisers dotting about. I also can’t sit down without a cup of tea perched next to me on the desk in my favourite mug.

 I’ve always wanted one of these personalised photo phone cases, I’m probably really late to the party here but I think they’re really cute and individual. It’s nice to look down at your phone and see some photos that make you smile! This case from Mr Nutcase (jokes name, I know) is my first foray into the personalised iPhone cases.

Getting Crafty with KraftyMonkey

This weekend was my baby twin sisters’ birthday. But, they’re not so baby anymore! They’re 9 and I can’t believe it, nearly double figures. They had separate birthday parties because they’re like chalk and cheese. One being pastel coloured hair chalk and the other being a big bit of Stilton. I’m not even joking, my 9 year old sister is obsessed with stinky cheese and the other one loves all things fashion, hair and beauty!  E had a Build-A-Bear Party the weekend before and Little G had a crafty party at a local craft centre at home in Chippenham, called Krafty Monkey! They specialise in decoupage which is essentially sticking different coloured and patterned bits of paper and decorating things, it’s amazing. It’s really fun and therapeutic and G loves it! Anyway, there was an empty seat because one of her friends couldn’t come in the end so me and Luke decided we could jump in a make some new ornaments for our new house! So this happened! I went for a gingham, spotty and stripy affair in red, yellow and black and Luke went for a cheeky camo number! They end up really shiny and smooth with the layer of PVA that y0u put over them!

Southwell Vintage & Antiques Fair

Luke and I love a vintage and retro find so we popped along to Southwell Antique & Vintage fair on Sunday to see if we could find any bargains for our new house. We actually found a bargain 70s two-tier coffee table for £14 which was great but I’m keeping that for another post, surprises, surprises. Anyway, here’s a little photo diary of the day, we saw some lovely bits. We also went to a car boot sale the day after and it’s so funny to see the difference in what people take in terms of goods to sell but you can also find some similar bits so it’s useful to go along and grab a bargain or two.
