I’m not a big fan of buying lots of toys for our children all they ever seem to do is play with them once and then never again; games however I do like. Especially ones that challenge their minds or teach them something new. We were recently sent some games to review and I thought I’d share our experience of them with you.

If I was going to be stranded on a desert island and I was allowed to take one thing it would probably be green tea. I am totally and utterly addicted to the stuff! I also swear it is the main reason that my weight stays under control without dieting. On a normal day I will have anything up to 7 mugs of green tea. I’ll also have a least one cup of matcha.

It was nearly 8 years ago now and I was working for Cancer Research UK in one of their Tunbridge Wells stores. I was busy sorting through the donations when I suddenly thought ‘Oh my god I’m pregnant’.

I dropped the bags I was sorting and headed straight to the local pharmacy to buy a test. Continue reading “How I Announced my #GEORGEousBump When We Were Expecting”
I was recently contacted by Lakeland Furniture to see if I would be interested in reviewing some of their chairs. The timing was perfect! Since buying our new house over two years ago I have slowly been decorating each room. I confess that I’m a sucker for pretty things and I actually find it stressful if I live in an environment that isn’t pleasing to the eye.
I hate shopping for clothes or shoes it’s just not my thing. I’d much rather spend my money on creating a home that makes me smile when I walk into each room. Continue reading “Adding DSR Chairs to our Vintage/Industrial Kitchen”
What would you say if I told you that we are all connected and that every decision you make on a daily basis has an effect on others? You’d probably think I sound like some new age hippy spouting on about enlightenment right?

This week I’m bringing you Thrifty Thursday from the water, hopefully we’re currently somewhere off the Cornwall coast, perhaps Fowey or Falmouth. It is our first ‘unplugged’ holiday of the year and is very much needed. No wifi, no 3G, no laptop just sun, sea and plenty of fresh air. Here’s a shot from last years trip, hopefully we are having the same weather as then, it was gorgeous! Continue reading “Thrifty Thursday: June 2016”

This year will be my 3rd year of joining in with Zero Waste Week, although we are certainly not a zero waste household yet I would love to get there one day. I know for a fact that you cannot go zero waste over night but you can make small changes every month to help you along your way. Continue reading “Zero Waste Week 2016 – I’m in are you?”
