With the recent burst of sunshine to hit the UK, I’m keen to add some Spring style into my wardrobe. Goodbye heavy coats, layers upon layers and winter warmers. Hello pastel hues, cute cardi’s and short sleeves. With this in mind, I have compiled my favourite under £40 dresses for Spring, on a budget of course.
Spring is coming…
I’ve never been the girl who buys fresh flowers every week. I’m not particularly great at keeping plants alive (RIP cacti friends), and it’s always much nicer to be sent flowers – don’t you think? There is something special about receiving a beautiful bouquet of blooms, whether it be a ‘thank you’ gesture or just a gift of love.
A creative at heart, I’m always eager to try something new. Whether it’s a new skill, hobby or simply learning how on earth to use manual focus on my camera – as long as I can fit it in with my busy lifestyle, I’m keen to try it. As soon as I heard that The Willow Tree in Cheltenham put on a variety of workshops in store, I couldn’t wait to give it a go.
Finding inspiration when you need it most can be a tiresome task. Whether you are a blogger, a teacher or just looking to decorate your home, we can all be struck with a lack of creativity at any given time. It sucks, right?
You may or may not have realised that this little corner of the blogosphere has been a tad quiet lately. I’ve hardly used Twitter or Facebook and my Instagram posts have been sporadic and totally unrelated to the blog. Truthfully, I’ve found it difficult to even sit down and explain my reasons why, but to keep it simple – I’ve lost my blogging mojo.
Grease is the word on everybody’s lips… or at least mine, anyway. I had the pleasure of going along to watch Grease The Musical at the New Theatre in Oxford on Tuesday night, as it kicks off a UK tour with a dazzling cast of familiar faces.
It’s not every day that Ladbrokes invite you and several other bloggers along to Ladies Day at the Cheltenham Festival, and I was particularly excited as it was on my home turf!
When social media plays a big part of your day job and what you do in your spare time, it can make it really difficult to switch off.
Valentines Day. Great if you’re in a relationship, but if you’re single *ahem* then it’s just another day. Luckily I had plans to go and sample some delicious food and drink to take my mind off it. Tasty Tuesday at Whole Foods happens once a month and costs just £5 for five dishes…
The idea is simple. One line for every day of the year for five years. A small space where you can write your thoughts about the present day. It doesn’t ask you to write anything specific, just a sentence or two to sum up your day – whether it be good or bad – it’s a memory.
