30 Things I Love About You

Today’s post is a slightly different flavour to what I’ve been writing about lately, but it’s a special occasion. This weekend was my husband’s 30th birthday. I don’t normally write much about our relationship, but I wanted to pay some sort of tribute to him for his birthday (regardless of whether or not he reads… Continue reading 30 Things I Love About You

A Very Last Minute Hiatus

I wasn't particularly expecting to write this post so soon, but if 2020 has been anything, it's been utterly batshit crazy. Earlier this year I mentioned that we had started proceedings into buying another house, and things just started moving again when coronavirus took a massive shit on all of our lives. I'll tell you… Continue reading A Very Last Minute Hiatus

Tattoo Tales

I’ve written about my experience getting my first tattoo as part of my 30 Before 30 series (which btw, I’m SMASHING...jks I’ve done sweet FA throughout 2020 and the early part of 2021), but I wanted to share a bit more about why I chose them and the meanings behind each one. I’ve wanted a… Continue reading Tattoo Tales

A Day in the Life

I’ll be honest with you - coming up with ideas for content is hard. So hard in fact, that I spend more of my time searching for content ideas than I do actually writing it. One of the suggestions that keeps coming up in the ideas I’ve found is to write a ‘Day in Your… Continue reading A Day in the Life

How I’ve Changed in 10 Years

Admittedly, this is probably something I should have posted a little bit earlier in 2020, but I struggled to get out the content I’d already planned, so anything extra was definitely a bit unrealistic. Anyway, towards the end of 2019, there were loads of people doing the Ten Year Challenge. I had a go at… Continue reading How I’ve Changed in 10 Years

14.02.2009

Valentine's Day is always a special day for me and my husband. I know of a few people who absolutely HATE Valentine’s Day, and I kind of agree that it’s a massive marketing ploy to sell extra flowers, booze and chocolates after the post Christmas slump. Despite that, we still celebrate it. Valentine’s Day for… Continue reading 14.02.2009

Stuff I Sort of Like About Myself

Most people who know me will know that I don’t particularly give myself an easy time when it comes to how I look. I’m the first person to pick out something that looks awful in a photo of me, to belittle my achievements and to dismiss anyone who says anything nice about me. So, today… Continue reading Stuff I Sort of Like About Myself

The Real Neat Blog Award

It’s been a while since I’ve had one of these nominations, and it’s always nice to get one! This week the lovely Chloe from Writing the Blues Away nominated me for the Real Neat Blog Award, and I hadn’t heard of this one before so I was excited to get started on it! Go and… Continue reading The Real Neat Blog Award

My Anti-30 Before 30

I’m often very guilty of focusing on stuff that I haven’t done or that I’ve failed at. I hardly ever look at the things I’ve achieved and I think that’s partially why I’m always so negative about myself. Most recently, I was looking through my 30 Before 30 list and it genuinely depressed me because… Continue reading My Anti-30 Before 30
