5 festive Christmas recipes

I was so excited when we got our own house, as that meant a kitchen all to myself to make lots of lovely recipes. Sadly, the Christmas recipes I was planning have been cast aside in favour of re-painting the walls in our kitchen. As the kitchen is currently a work in progress with DIY materials lit…

Nail Polishes for Christmas


So let's talk about Christmas nail polishes. Admittedly, 2015 has been a pretty tough year and honestly Christmas hasn't really been a priority for me and Matt this year... Does anyone else just not feel that Christmassy? Despite this, I had a little mooch through my nail polish collection and picked out a few shades that I thought would be perfect to wear during the festive season...

Autumn

Autumn is my favourite season. There is just something about this transition period between summer and winter where everything seems to just glow.

Nail Polishes for Halloween


Halloween is one of my favourite times of the the year... Carving pumpkins, passing out sweets to the trick or treaters and sometimes dressing up! You may not have a fancy dress party to go to, so here are my top nail polish picks to add a subtle hint of Halloween to your outfits...

My favourites... Disney Medleys

I have a whole lotta love for Disney... I grew up watching Disney movies, and one of my first trips to the cinema was to see Beauty and the Beast, so they will always hold a special place in my heart.

I'm also very lucky to have a husband who also appreciates the wonder that is Disney... the mo…

Last week saw the arrival of the first day of autumn, which is all kinds of awesome as I just LOVE autumn, and I thought 'great, I can finally write my 'I ♥ Autumn' post!'

So, I got to thinking about the writing the post and then the inevitable happened... I started to overthink everything.

30 Before 30 - May 2015

I posted my last 30 before 30 update back in April last year. Having managed to tick a few more items off the list, I thought I'd do another update post, as I think it's always nice to look back on your goals and what you have achieved.

30 Before 30
1. Marry Matt
2. Move into our own place

We bought a house!


So today's post is definitely a happy one, as I can finally tell you all that...

Matt and I have bought a house!

Review: SleepPhones

Back in October, Matt and I made the tough decision to move out of our rented house into his parents' spare room. We want a house of our own, and although we were saving while we were renting, it was going to take a long time to get the kind of money we needed for the house we wanted. So, we took a deep breath and handed in our notice on the house, and a month later, packed up our lives into my uncle's garage, Matt's nan's spare room and whatever we could fit into his parents' spare room.

Going from a two bedroom house to one small room has been tough. Really tough. Arguments have been had, tears have been shed. If nothing else it has proved how strong our relationship is that we haven't killed each other yet ;) One thing that we've had to work around is our different work schedules, as I work a 9-5 office job and Matt works in manufacturing on a 3-shift rotation which means some days he will be going to bed as I'm waking up, or he wants to go to sleep pretty early whereas I'm still wide awake. I'd been using my iPhone earbuds with my tablet to watch TV shows whilst he slept, but after a while my ears were sore and wearing the earbuds was pretty uncomfortable. When I was offered a pair of SleepPhones to try, I was super excited as they were just what I'd been looking for. Pyjamas for your ears - yes please!

Recipes to try...

Not having my own kitchen to cook in has been one of the harder parts of living with our parents; we've been eating a lot of processed and unhealthy food, mainly because the logistics of sharing a kitchen means we're often waiting around to use the kitchen so by the time we get in there, we…
