I have to admit that I found January a very long month. It seemed to go on forever. I know that wishing our lives away is not good, and certainly doesn’t fit in with my life is all about the journey mantra, but sometimes it’s good to keep moving forward! And with the turn of

Currently Loving | March 2016

Who doesn’t like having nice things? I’ve been really trying to reduce the amount of “stuff” I have cluttering up the place, but there is definitely still room in my life for good stuff and nice treats. So the currently loving blog series continues. Here are ten of the things I am enjoying right now.

Currently Loving | December 2015

You said you enjoyed my currently loving in November so you’re getting one for December too! And in the interests of my YouTube experiment you’re also getting a video run-down of everything I’ve chosen this month too – go straight to the bottom of this post if you’d prefer to watch rather than read.  1 | I

{ Sunday Soliloquy } Some Valentine’s Day Thoughts

[ so·lil·o·quy – the act of speaking one’s thoughts aloud when by oneself or regardless of any hearers ] I doubt that the significance of yesterday’s date passed you buy. St Valentine’s Day, a day when traditionally we are encouraged to treat our loved one to something special to demonstrate how much we love them.

Giveaway: Walking Goodies from #MySwissKit

Knowing that I enjoy a good walk, Inntravel sent me a little Switzerland-themed present this week. Inntravel specialise in slow holidays, that is to say, holidays which reveal the lesser-taken path and which offer a truly individual holiday experience. I love the idea of a walking holiday. A couple of years ago I stayed in a

What’s Your Living Room Talent?

According to an article I read recently, one of the top things people regret never doing is mastering an awesome party trick. You know the sort of silly thing I’m talking about – an impression, a magic trick, being able to contort your body into some weird shape, spinning a plate on your finger…  …then Maltesers emailed me to tell

A Very Cute Ring Holder

Do you buy Easter eggs for your family and friends every year? How about in 2014 choosing a healthier alternative? Something still Easter related, but without all that sugar and all those calories? I’m not against Easter Eggs or chocolate in general (feel free to send some my way!), but something else might be money

Sleep Well Chocolate Bunny x

I am very sad to post that our gorgeous little Chocolate died this morning.  At six-and-a-half she was considered old but not in my eyes. Sleep well little bunny. Your cuddles and escapades will be greatly missed.

Review: Cadbury’s Marvellous Creations Cola Pretzel Honeycomb

Is this the strangest Cadbury’s Marvellous Creations creation yet? It’s the one with Cola, Pretzel and Honeycomb. I bought some a little bit ago to share with LincsGeek. Sharing a big bar of Marvellous Creations, with it’s wonky uneven shaped pieces, is actually very difficult. The bar doesn’t break neatly into even strips of chocolate

Review: Quality Street Green Triangle Desserts

A little while ago I spotted new Quality Street Toffee Penny Desserts in my local Tesco Express. LincsGeek and I were really very impressed – he knew what the dessert was supposed to be without having seen the packaging, and we’ve had several of them since. So when I was given the opportunity to try

Review: New Limited Edition Pringles

I have the pleasure of working with lots of brands and organisations through Splodz Blogz, and every now and again a PR company will do something that really makes me smile. Earlier in the week I received a package that did just that – made me smile, made me sit up and notice, made me

Recipe | Nutella Brownies

This photo is one of the most popular things I’ve posted on instagram, twitter and facebook this year… …it shows the result of my Nutella Brownie experiment earlier in the week. Looks good, huh?! A friend reposted a recipe over on facebook that offered me the chance to make brownies using just three ingredients. I
