Do you know what the best things about winter are? It’s easy. Christmas, snow, the beach, hot chocolate and soup. Done, that’s it, a perfect winter for me. Continue reading Soup Glorious Soup
This weekend I was lucky enough to not only have a child free weekend away with the other half but to have also been invited to e-Luminate Cambridge Festival of Light as a blog ambassador.
The festival started on Friday but we sadly couldn’t make the opening ceremony and it runs until the 17th, so there’s still plenty of time to visit and enjoy the amazing light installations and if you’re lucky book onto one of the fab events. As it’s half term week it would be a fab thing to do with the kids. Continue reading Our Valentine’s Weekend at e-Luminate Cambridge 2016
A few weekends ago my sister and I went to Clarice House in Bury St Edmunds for a day of relaxation and pampering to celebrate her 30th birthday.
I booked our package through Spa Seekers, which was fine and I got an awesome deal, but what wasn’t mentioned, at any point, was that our package didn’t include robe and towel hire, so whilst I would recommend both Spa Seekers for the deals and Clarice House for the loveliness I will say now you need to make sure that your package includes everything you assume it would.
Our package included an hour long massage, 30 minute facial, 30 minute manicure and 30 minute pedicure, as well as lunch and use fo the facilities. Pure bliss.
I love my little workspace at home. It is so important to me getting quiet time to work, being productive and being happy. It’s a work in progress still but I love it. My recent improvement has been with the Lumie Desklamp.
My little workspace is set up in our conservatory, a world of natural light you would have thought, apart from the fact we live in England and it is normally miserable, I do most of my work in the evenings and the lights we have in the conservatory are a bit pants.
So I needed a new desk lamp and having worked with Lumie before, reviewing the wonderful bodyclocks, they seemed like the perfect partner for me. Continue reading Improving My Workspace with Lumie
I think I may have found the perfect Valentine’s Day gift, or Mother’s Day, or Father’s Day actually.
The We Are Family Journal from Illustries.
It’s a beautiful hardback A4 book, printed in navy and classic brown and filled with page upon page of wonderfully printed ideas and themes to fill out for your family.
I love it for it’s simple and elegant look, it is a perfect ‘coffee table’ book. It is stylish and unlike other memory books I have seen it isn’t overly girly, it is a much for my husband as it is for me, which I really like.
Time for my monthly Degustabox feature, if you haven’t seen previous month’s posts, Degustabox is a monthly subscription box, filled with amazing new foods for you to try out. Including new lines from big brands and foods from smaller brands that you maybe weren’t aware of. For £12.99 per box you will have contents worth well in excess of that, get the chance to try something new and maybe even find a new favourite treat. I enjoy getting to try things I wouldn’t normally buy for my family.
The January box was a treat as usual, filled with lots of new flavours and even a cheeky bottle of lager, hooray. Here’s what I got; Continue reading My January Degustabox
