A Week In Loch Lomond…

A Week In Loch Lomond…

Summer 2018

My family, our dog and I travelled from the North East to sunny Southern Scotland for the week last week, or should I say more specifically Loch Lomond in the village of Balmaha. It was my first time visiting this neck of the woods in Scotland and I’m already missing the beautiful views and stone cottages. I’m not missing my aching feet though I must say, from exploring and going on what were described as ‘short hill walks’ which turned out to be the very opposite! Lesson learned: always go prepared. There was however coffee shops involved too of course and a few dips in the hot tub which was such a treat. Lucky gal! Anyhow, I thought I would share a few snaps I took whilst I was there and a bit about our trip, including dog friendly eateries (which actually proved quite a struggle) that also had good menus for fussy vegetarians, being my older sister for when we didn’t cook at the lodge and the places we visited encase any of you are thinking of visiting!…

I don’t know about you, but I’m a sucker when it comes to phone cases. In fact, I think I might have a slight addiction. So when the lovely team over at CaseApp got in touch and asked me to pick out some products from their website and share them with you, I couldn’t resist!!

Blogging 3 Years Later…

Blogging 3 Years Later…

Well, well, well, here we are, three years in. HOW CRAZY IS THAT? Happy birthday to us! Almost 3 years ago in April, little me from Yorkshire hit the publish button on my very first blog post. Although this blog looks a tad different from what it looked like back in the day, when my younger self quite frankly didn’t know what she was doing, I’m still the same person behind it and have the same intentions. Today I thought I’d take you on a lil’ trip down memory lane from when I was a newbie to the blogging world and the beauty community, up to now (which there has hopefully been some improvement!) It got me thinking the other day when the dreaded email came through my inbox to tell me that my Site Ground yearly service hosting was due to expire (which my bank account always loves) and I honestly can’t believe the time has come around again!  View Post

Blogging Skills I Want To Improve On In 2018

Blogging Skills I Want To Improve On In 2018

The other day, I was reading  Sophie’s blog post all about the blogging skills she wants to improve on this year and thought it was such a good idea and actually found that most of the points she mentioned are fairly similar to the things I’m setting myself to improve on this year when it comes to blogging too. Although I started my blog at the start of 2016, there are still skills I would love to be able to learn more about and get better at doing. It got me thinking about which blogging skills I want to improve on in the coming months and thought I would share them with you!

Why I Made My New Year’s Resolution To Not Make Any At All

Why I Made My New Year’s Resolution To Not Make Any At All

I don’t know about you but for me, the new year can seem quite daunting as well as all the positive that comes with the start to a new year, with ‘a new year, fresh start’ attitude where you want to make this the year that you do and achieve all the things you didn’t do last year. However, sometimes you just need to take a bit of a step back and not panic that January has already flown by and you didn’t write 20 blog posts.
