Two weeks today until Christmas Day! We are on countdown but do not fear you still have time to finish your shopping and there is no need to panic shop. No matter how late you leave it make sure you buy something personal rather than grabbing the first gift set you see in Boots. If you have a bit of spare time (chances are you haven't but you never know...) why not make something homemade to give as a gift. There is still time to order online too and if you have an Amazon Prime account chances are you can get it delivered tomorrow. Here's a roundup of my best last minute online Christmas gifts.
It's Christmas (nearly)! So I thought it would be fun to share my favourite Christmas tracks with you all. I have some great memories of singing along to these tunes in my car back in my commuting days. If you haven't caught my music series posts so far you can find them all here
With Christmas coming up on us fast, I know that many of you (like me) are quietly driving yourself crazy trying to come up with gift ideas. Of course, you want your gift to be special, but let's face it we don't necessarily have much time to spend browsing to find something unique for each person. Fortunately, there are ways to buy truly personalized presents for everyone without having to spend a lot of time shopping.
Daniel Gluck is 101 in a state of extended sleep and not sure if he is dead or young again. Elizabeth Demand is 32, single, looking to the future in a country divided by a historic vote. This story is set in a post Brexit Summer filled with hope and hopelessness in equal measure.
We moved house this week which was rather epic. A lot of mixed emotions flying around. Whilst I am super excited to me move to a bigger home saying goodbye to our old house which holds so many wonderful memories was difficult. We bought both our babies home to that house. The little room which was the nursery both times was the hardest room to close the door on. So I’ve decided to share a picture of our last meal together in the old house before I start making new memories in our new home.
It is now November, which means by law it’s time to start celebrating Christmas. Jokes aside, Christmas is fast approaching and we all want to be able to prepare for the festive season ahead.
As part of this you may be looking into buying a tree for the house, lighting it up like Blackpool illuminations, and be sending out cards and gifts through Shiply to family members you won’t see in time for the big day.
Now that you are ready to start Christmas shopping, you might be already working out your budgets and writing down some great ideas for presents for the family and friends. Just remember, you can still buy great gifts for a low price, and here are some ideas which will cost you less than a fiver.
We’ve had loads of Halloween fun already this week and it isn’t even the 31st yet! I’ll be talking more about the kid’s fun trick or treating at our local events but today I’m sharing my Halloween makeup look.
Welcome back to my music series where I run down some of my favourite tracks. If you've missed previous weeks you can catch up here. This week we are going all out Rock!
Firstly do not confuse this book with the bestseller The Girl on the Train. It is definitely not that book. They were first published the same month so looks like the similarities it is just conincidental but I’m sure the confusion has boosted sales!
So what goes on in this book - let’s find out...
Time for another instalment from my music series. This week we are going back to the 80's inspired by Amazon Music's All 80's station which I've been listening to as part of my Prime membership. I can't stress enough how much I'm loving Amazon Music at the moment.
If you have missed Weeks 1-3 catch up here.
