Currently Loving: October 2016

Ahhhh October, the month that Autumn really gets going making everything outside super colourful, but equally the month that the mornings and evenings grow darker and darker meaning I can’t see that beautiful colour most days. Anyway, time for my monthly favourites blog post, a chance for me to gather a few things together that I’m particularly enjoying

Winter Camping – Tips to Keep you Cosy and Comfy

Today I’m publishing a guest post by Rachel Campbell all about winter camping… having spent a weekend under canvas this October I can confirm her tips are super useful! Camping used to be seen as a summer activity, thanks to the warmer weather and the wealth of outdoor activities to enjoy with friends and family. However more

The Splodz Blogz Photo Challenge | Week 43 #SplodzWPC

It’s been a little quiet on here for the last week for which I apologise; life has been a bit busy what with the Outdoor Bloggers weekend and work and everything else. It just means there hasn’t been any time left for putting words and pictures together for Splodz Blogz. Normal service will be resumed as

The Splodz Blogz Photo Challenge | Week 40 #SplodzWPC

Something that you might think is a bit tougher this week for our photo challenge… Check out #SplodzWPC on Twitter | Instagram | Facebook Week 40 Theme: Habitual   I guess after our week of reflection last week I wanted to make you think a little more. This year-long challenge was designed to give us inspiration for photography, I’m

Currently Loving: September 2016

As you will have noticed I have had a few months off the monthly Currently Loving posts here on Splodz Blogz; I was away for three months then had a super busy month at work in August, and September has quite simply flown by. I did think I should start in October but I had

Dressing Gown & Sweets | Weekly Vlog 21

Are you enjoying my weekly vlogs? I’ve been dabbling in this YouTube thing for 21 weeks now and would really love to know what you think. Do let me know! And then watch the latest episode, featuring that lovely soft dressing gown of mine even more (I think I need another one so it at least

Review: Scoff Club – Subscription Sweets

I definitely seem to have some sort of reputation when it comes to sweets. I absolutely love sugary fruity citrus flavoured chewy or melty or crumbly candy. I just can’t help myself and my friends know it and I will often be gifted sweets over anything else. Even when there is a cupboard full of chocolate I can

Currently Loving: April 2016

Wow this year is going FAST! It could do with slowing down a little to be honest; I hope the next three months don’t go as quickly as the last three. But anyway, it might be a week late but welcome to my latest Currently Loving post, an opportunity for me to present ten of

Recipe: My Carrot Soup

I’m giving in to another recipe request here on Splodz Blogz. I hope my outdoor loving friends don’t mind too much – who doesn’t like a nice bowl of steaming soup when they come in from a great day on the trails? This is my home made carrot soup recipe, a firm favourite in our house that I’ve

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.

Snacking for Pros – Energy Boosters Between Meals

Snacking has poor PR. We are constantly being told to stop it, stick with three healthy meals per day. For some, looking after our teeth, gut, muscles and mind is all about eating lean and clean. But I think snacking rocks. It’s awesome. Not only does it help bridge the gap between meals (I can’t

The Splodz Blogz Photo Challenge | Week 9

Ahhhhh the outdoors. Thanks everyone who took part in this week’s photo challenge, it was wonderful to see all your outdoor adventures over the last seven days (and historically, too). I hope you enjoyed this one – I think it’s the most entries so far so keep up the good work.  This week I’m going for
