Current Skin Care Routine


it's taken me God knows how many years to nail down a skin routine that finally works for me. But now, at nearly 29 years old, I think I've got it (for now!).

It's really important to remember that one skin routine will not always work for you, whether it's age, puberty, the seasons.. there can be multiple factors that sometimes you need to change things up a bit.

This is what I use below, and when;

Going Green for 2019


Over the last few years, I love how everyone is being more mindful about what's harmful to our little planet! Since we have moved into our own home, we have also been making big changes along the way to do our little bit for our environment.

Using re-usable bags or opting for no bags
When we do our weekly shop, we were really good at taking our own bags along with us instead of asking for 15 small cheap carrier bags (that also adds up when you spend 5p on each one may I add!) Over the last few weeks though, we have had the shopping delivered as we have eben quite busy getting back into our routine. The first shop we got came with a million carrier bags - no joke. Nearly every item came with their own bag, which I don't understand how shops can justify. We have now noticed before you pay for your shop online, there is an option to not use any carrier bags - which means we are saving money, helping the environment and not having a million and one of them in the house! Massive result!

Netflix Loving!

If you know me, you know how much I like to binge watch series on Netflix. Literally. Every. Day.

I always feel a bit lost when I finish a series and not sure what to watch next, but I always find something that catches my eye and get sucked into. My issue is I always watch my TV series way too quickly as I'm dying to know what happens next! But I do feel a little bit unsettled if the whole series is not released in one go and it's an episode a week - total nightmare for me!

So here is a list of what I have loved recently..

1. Orange is the New Black
I'm not going to spoil the new series for anyone who hasn't watched it yet, but it literally came out on the Friday and I managed to watch all the new episodes by the Monday night. I love all the character's in this series and I thought the new characters in series 6 were pretty good too! I have noticed that the first couple series of OITNB were quite funny and not as serious, but from series 3 on wards it does start to have a dark turn and gets into the nitty gritty of things. I wonder if there will be a series 7 next year..

Hello 2019


2018 has been one heck of a year! Mostly, we have been trying to make our house a home, which we will be continuing to do when we enter and throughout 2019.

We don't plan on going on any holidays again this year, so we can continue with our house projects and get it to exactly how we want. Our first task is getting a new fridge freezer, then save up some more to start our up cycling project in the kitchen (saving loads of money!). I can't wait for this project to start, as I really find our current kitchen dark and dingy.

Our House - Update


As people already know, Calum and I bought a house last November - it was a bit of a rush to get in and settled before Christmas but I'm loving how our little updates are coming along! We already feel settled in our home already - I love being able to say we have a home.

Five Happy Things #5


1. Fresh flowers
What's not to love about freshly cut flowers? I try and buy a fresh bunch every week to give our living room a little boost.
