Halloween is Coming

28 September 2016
To be honest, I've never been big on halloween. Some people go all out and decorate their houses with tons of decorations.... but that's never been me! However, I do love that halloween means autumn, and cosy nights tucked up on the sofa with a blanket and hot chocolate (or chai latte)!

When Dan's family returned from America with this mini Bath & Body Works candle for me I was pretty excited! I've heard many a great thing about these, with everyone raving about the quality of the candles and the scent they give off. Now, with Halloween on its way, this is a limited edition themed candle... which is actually pretty cool.

Now the name 'vampire blood' may seem slightly strange, but hey, I'll just go with it.... especially since the pumpkin vampire on the glass jar is so darn cute.

A Busy Weekend

26 September 2016
What a lovely weekend it was. Normally I spend the majority of my weekends sitting around doing not very much at all…. And while that is nice, it can get a bit boring. I don’t like feeling as though I’ve wasted my two days off, so it’s always good to go out somewhere, even just for a little while. This weekend however, it seemed as though everything hit in one go and everyday there was something going on.

Two Years of Blogging!

23 September 2016
Who would have thought my little blog would have survived its second year?! Not me! Particularly since it’s been a damn busy year what with completing the final year of my degree (and all the madness that comes hand in hand with that) and starting full time work. It would have been all too easy for me to give up. Throw in the towel and just think of myself as ‘too busy’ to blog. Yes, I dropped the ball for a while, and posts weren’t as regular as I’d have hoped, but I carried on. Blogging is something I’ve found myself really enjoying, and seeing my following grow is both exciting and truly humbling. It’s a hobby, and it’s so very important that we all have hobbies and engage with the things we enjoy. I couldn’t throw in the towel and lose something I’ve worked so hard on. I didn’t want to deprive myself of the joy I get from snapping photographs and writing things that are interesting to me… and so, here I am, writing up a little post all about surviving two years in the blogosphere. Two wonderful years.

My Hero

14 September 2016
My Dad was a wise man, full of knowledge about pretty much everything. As well as this, he was kind, loving and my ultimate hero. I like to think he moulded the person I am today. I definitely have his sense of humour, sarcasm and impatience for people... but also I'd like to think I have some of his caring/loving side too. 

Since last Thursday would have been his 57th birthday, I thought I'd post something in homage to him. The man that made my life wonderful (alongside my amazing mom of course)!

On Sunday, my mom tagged me and my sister in a Facebook post written by my dad in 2009. It was one of those "25 things" in which you write random facts/thoughts/hobbies. It was crazy seeing this again and just reminded me of how amazing my dad was..... I also like to think I got my passions for writing from him, so thanks for that too.

A Tasty Snack

12 September 2016
The brand Love Chin Chin originated in West Africa and create delicious 100% natural 
snacks that 'crunch like biscuits, taste like a cake'. After reading that it's safe to say I was intrigued. I'm definitely a snacker. Someone who likes to eat often throughout the day. I'm not one of those people who can just eat three straight meals and thats it... hell no! So when the brand kindly offered to send* me some of the snacks to test out, it's safe to say I was excited to give them a try.
