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.
