How To Pack For A Haven Holiday When You Don’t Drive

Being a family that doesn’t drive means that some holiday destinations are quite hard for us to get to or it means we can’t take everything we would possibly need. You may have read some of our posts recently about our holiday to Haven in Caister-on-Sea and to get here, we had to take the bus. Luckily, we are able to get a bus 5 minutes from our house and it dropped us right outside Haven. If it had been further away, we might have struggled.

Developing Allergies As An Adult

I’ve always been really thankful that I haven’t suffered from allergies such as hay fever. Up until this year I have been able to happily enjoy every spring and summer, wearing whatever make-up I wanted and generally just getting on with things.

Tips For Shopping In The January Sales

Now that Black Friday and Cyber Monday are out of the way it means that Christmas will be here pretty soon! That means the January sales are coming too. Well, I’m not really sure if I should call¬†them January sales now. I remember when the sales did start after Christmas but now it seems that there are loads of sales on during the week before Christmas, which is just a bit crazy to me. People can often feel the pressure to go mad in these sales and spend money they don’t have or buy things they don’t need. I asked
