We tend to have a lot going on all of the time and I hate feeling stressed or panicked about getting everything done. So, each New Year I put a plan in place to get myself organised and ready for anything we have coming up. Getting into this frame of mind takes a bit of practice though and I never used to be like this. Now though, with a family I have to be

A Covent Garden Christmas

AD | Collaborative post. The spending money was gifted by Hotels.com, but all views are my own. As a way to celebrate Christmas a bit early, last weekend I headed to London with my Mum for some quality time together and festive fun.
