Hen Parties are changing - whoop whoop! Thankfully we are no longer stuck with the choice of a night in an awful club wearing L plates or a pretty boring girls pamper night in. The choices for activities and the expectation of a bit of quality mean things are certainly much more appealing to the hens and the guests. But one thing activity seems to be out competing them all and it is, in it’s own way, somewhat traditional and that’s Hen Party Life Drawing. But what is it all about and is it any good?
As we creep towards December Christmas shopping is in full swing! Today I'm featuring my top picks for kids Christmas gifts which are a little unusual and will ensure excitement and smiles on Christmas Day (even from the teenagers).
Despite November being a super manic month so far we are watching some awesome TV, to the point where Husband and I actually decided we are watching to much and have designated Tuesday night Games Night! Here's a round up of what I'm watching this month...
Let’s Talk About Dying. No? Well no one would blame you. Very few people want to talk about dying and even less are able to do so with any kind of cheer. But, it really should be something we talk about. People love to talk about inevitable things like tax, weather, illness, traffic, work and so on but yet when it comes to the single most guaranteed thing in life we clam up.
There is, of course a reason for this and that is because it is sad, scary and a whole host of others things as well as being a bit impolite in some situations. The irony of it all is by talking about it less we actually make it all worse. If we were more open about it we can avoid some of the more negative aspects of dying.
Last we I featured my Christmas Gift Guide for Men and this week it's the turn of the Girls! I've collated and tested some of the best, reasonably priced gifts available online and on the high street. So read on for a round up of Christmas gifts I'd love to find in my stocking this year.
Christmas is in the air and I've scoured the internet to compile some of my favourite gifts ideas to make your loved ones simile this Christmas without breaking your bank. First up we have gifts for the men.
Ah, Christmas. It’s a wonderful time of year, as long as you don’t look at your bank account. It’s hard to experience the same joy we felt as children during the festive season because there’s so much planning and spending to be done at this time of year. But Christmas doesn’t need to be a financial burden. Here’s how to save money during the festive season so that your budget feels bigger.
Lest we forget...
It has been quite a few years since I properly picked up a paintbrush, but I received some shiny new paints for my birthday and when I sat down with blank paper before me a poppy instantly came to mind.
Remember those hectic, crazy busy days of summer? They seem like a lifetime ago! Now that Autumn is in full swing, you might have thought that the days would go a little slower, and your schedule and to-do list might not be as long as it once was…but many of us find ourselves dashing around even more then we were before. The school run, birthday parties, school events, parent’s evenings, not to mention everyday tasks that need completing – will we ever catch a break before Christmas?
October is one of my favourite months because it is my birthday! Lots of fun and laughs this year, in particular escaping from the Pharoah's tomb at Escape Rooms in London Bridge. That may have been the highlight of my year! Lots of cuddles with cousins, dinner parties and baking.
