Discovering Bavaria with BenQ

I have spent the last two days in Bavaria at the launch of the BenQ GS1. It has been an amazing experience. So I’m really happy that I got to attend.

I had never been to Bavaria before, I actually had to Google it to find out where it was. My geography is atrocious. In fact I had never actually flown by myself before. So there were lots of new experiences for me. Turns out flying by myself was a breeze, it’s so much easier when you aren’t arranging everyone else.

Doddle Bags from Lakeland – Review

It is safe to say Lakeland is up there as one of my favourite stores, there’s always a new gadget, gift or kitchen accessory I want so I was really excited to get to review Doddle Bags for them.

Doddle Bags are reusable food and drink pouches, but more than that they can be used for toiletries when you are travelling, using with paints, any liquid basically.

They are perfect for on the go, they are leak proof, have anti-choke caps and are dishwasher and freezer safe. They are simply amazing and I have been a bit blown away by them. Continue reading Doddle Bags from Lakeland – Review

Sandaway Beach Holiday Park North Devon

Last week were lucky enough to have a family holiday in Devon, we were based at Sandaway Beach Holiday Park in Combe Martin, North Devon thanks to the lovely people at John Fowler Holidays.

Devon is about 6 hours in the car from us, so with such a long way t travel there are a few things that we really need to have on arrival. A straight forward check in, something fun to do with L, food and a comfy bed. We were me with all these things. It was lovely.

Project Bridesmaid #8

So in about a year I am going to be a bridesmaid for my little sister. This is just the kind of goal I need to diet, start losing some weight and getting healthier, which all ties in nicely with my quest to be a calmer, happier and healthier person.

I have decided to vlog about my journey as that will give me a visual reminder of where I’ve been and where I am and as it’s something that makes me rather uncomfortable it will also help to keep me in check. Plus it’s always good to push yourself.

During my journey I will be getting to try all kinds of new products and sharing my experiences of them with you. Continue reading Project Bridesmaid #8

Having Your Own Workspace

When I started blogging two years ago the aim was to help me find a way, any way, to stay at home. I tried a few different things, took a few courses and found myself working as a Social Media Manager. I was able to leave my admin job and am now officially self employed. I thought I would start sharing some of the things I have learnt along the way.

I have spent enough time working from the sofa on my laptop, it has it’s benefits that’s for sure, but I have found it increasingly more and more important to have my own workspace and here’s why.

When the guys at Rust-Oleum got in touch a couple of weeks back to see if I fancied taking part in a bit of a blogger challenge they were running to create a wedding craft the timing couldn’t have been better.
