Holiday styles – from saving to splurging

When it comes to going away on holiday figuring out what your budget is has got to be pretty high on your list. Even once you’ve booked the destination it’s important to think about activities, trips and food – well unless you’re all inclusive and don’t plan on moving from the pool. You lucky thing. There’s nothing worse than planning a holiday and realising that you’ve not saved enough for the things you wanted to…

A little bit of life lately – the half term roadtrip

It’s been a little while since I’ve written a blog post so I thought I’d do a little catch up of what I’ve been up to recently. I really enjoy reading posts like this on other blogs, and I hope you do too because I’m diving in and sharing one! We’ve been on half term and decided to make the most of the time off and go on a little road trip to Devon, Cornwall…

Supporting independent brands while enjoying some me time with a Moi-Meme box

This blog post highlights two of my very favourite things, having ‘me time’ AND supporting small independent businesses, with a Moi-Meme box I can do both these things at the the same time. I love just how passionate Moi Meme are about supporting independent, often female-led, brands. They believe in collaboration, not competition, and want to showcase products created by smaller businesses by hand picking them for their subscription boxes. With so many subscription box…

Where a viaduct bridge arches over the homes and gardens and links to Devon on the other side. It’s seems to be a sleepy village for most of the year until the summer when it bustles with holiday makers and chattering tourists arriving in boat loads to enjoy the chocolate box Cornish scenery. They’d…

A Weekend of Little Legacies

When I first started blogging I joined in with a series called Little Legacy, created by Penny (Parentshaped) as way of sharing the little things that helped her remember her mum and the legacy of her in present day. As I had lost my mum a couple of years previously too I found it such a helpful way of working through my grief. Due to their personal nature I didn’t bring many of these posts…

Our relaxing weekend in the Peak District with Sandybrook

Over Mother’s Day weekend we had a family treat and stayed at Sandybrook Country Park in Derbyshire. Nestled in the countryside near the town of Ashbourne, Sandybrook is a perfect little family getaway location. We had a lodge with two bedrooms and a living space with kitchen diner and relaxed seating area. Just what you need as a family of four. Our cosy lodge was perfect for evenings of family board games and films, and…

What type of mum are you?

Confession time. I’ve got a thing for online quiz’s, you know the silly ones that test just how much of a Greys Anatomy fan you are (FYI- huge), or what personality type you are. Don’t worry I’m not someone that takes these tests and spams all my Facebook friends with every single result from what Disney princess I am to which character in Friends I’d be.  They are a bit of fun and I’m always…
