Bistrot Pierre - Stockton Heath

I'm lucky enough to live in the middle of a few villages and towns that have great restaurants for a foodie - perfect for me - so when I was contacted about Bistrot Pierre launching a new Spring/Summer menu, I was very excited to head over there and try it out. With six new starters, six new mains and two new puddings I was thoroughly spoiled for choice!

Postmodern Jukebox Tour

Last month, I donned my gladrags (sort of!) and headed into Manchester to see the ever-stylish and oh-so-creative Postmodern Jukebox playing live at the Albert Hall.

I've followed Postmodern Jukebox since their "All About the Bass" cover went viral, so a bit of a latecomer to the party...but an avid fan none the less.

The Lakes Distillery Tour and Tasting

What do you get when you combine the beautiful Lake District and gin??? The Lakes Distillery tour!

Earlier this year, I took part in a tour and tasting at the Lakes Distillery and I've got to tell you - it was excellent. And I don't just mean the gin...

Iceland Trip Day One

In January, we booked a short trip to Iceland for the second week of Easter. Of course, we were excited to go and looking forward to seeing the sights. However, in the run up to the holiday, I suffered a miscarriage (I posted about this here). Heartbroken, we had to decide whether to still go on the trip, whether I was physically and emotionally capable and all that it entailed. We decided to go ahead with the trip and it was the best decision we could have made. Iceland healed my soul and I fell in love with this stunning country. So here is our travel diary for the healing holiday.

Best Daily Habits for a Healthy Skin


As you might have noticed, I haven't blogged for a while now. I've had a lot going on in my offline life at the moment which has had a real impact on my online life. Fortunately, Shawky from No More Marionette got in touch with this guest post which I'm sure you'll love reading!

Valentine's Day Gift Guide 2018 for her

The day of love is approaching ever closer and in the spirit of blogging, I decided to make a Valentine's Day gift guide. I wanted to do a gift guide last year when hubs had a milestone birthday and I bought him a LOT of small gifts. However, time and life got in the way of blogging and it didn't happen. Hubs and I actually made things Facebook official near Valentine's Day so it's a special time of year for us anyway...however, his gift buying skills are renowned for being quirky (at best!) so perhaps this can serve as a hint for him...

Dinner and Drinks in Knutsford

Sick of our home town, my gorgeous friends and I decided to go to Knutsford for dinner and drinks. We had a lovely time and really loved the places we visited! It's so worth a trip there is you're localish (we're about 30 minutes away by car) or if you're staying in the area and want somewhere nice to eat.

Decorative Letters: How To and the Finished Product

I recently made a New Year's Resolution to craft more. I love creating things and while I'm not an expert in any craft, I'll give almost anything a go. So with this in mind, I spent some time this weekend making some decorative letters for my mantelpiece.

I'm pretty pleased with how they turned out and hope you like them too!

A how to guide to making decorative letters for your home

Read on to find out how I created them.

What I got for Christmas 2017

As always, I'm only intending to show my appreciation for the gifts I received in this post - this year, I received some gorgeous gifts (and a tin of Spam from Mr T...I think he was trying to be funny...) and I felt so incredible grateful to not only receive the gifts, but also to spend time with the people giving them to me.

My favourite part of Christmas prep is choosing and wrapping the perfect gift for someone - this year, my favourite gift I bought was a Cumbrian colouring book for my dad. It brought back all the memories for him and is a present I bought a long time ago. When you see the perfect gift, you just know don't you!

Anyway, onto my beautiful presents!

Cutting my hair and donating to Little Princess Trust

For a long long time now, I've had long hair. Long, thick, unruly hair. I've resisted and resisted having it cut and even when I did go for "the chop" I had MAYBE an inch taken off the bottom. It wasn't until my hairdryer broke at the beginning of November that I really realised how much hair I actually had. I'd already asked for a new hairdryer for Christmas and so was left with a travel hairdryer for SIX weeks. It was like using a toothbrush to mop an arena floor. Add to that, some severe hair envy on Jenna Coleman and suddenly, cutting it all off seemed like a great idea. In the end, I had eight inches cut off my hair and, while I was in the chair, my hairdresser suggest that I donate my hair to the Little Princess Trust.
