Giving Jewellery As The Perfect Present

It’s my birthday in just under a week and I’ll be turning 32. I had to check that though because I’m terrible for forgetting how old I really am. I spent so many years lying about my age as a teenager to get into pubs years before I should have been in them so now it all gets a bit fuzzy. Anyway, it’s gotten me thinking about what I would really like for my birthday this year and jewellery is always a great option! For Christmas in 2016 Mum bought me a charm bracelet, something I have wanted for a

Mother’s Day Gift Ideas

Mother’s Day isn’t far away now but there’s still plenty of time to gather some ideas and get those gifts ordered! Hopefully, this guide full of affordable gifts to suit everyone will give you some inspiration. Flowers and plants are always a lovely gift to give for Mother’s Day but it would be a real shame if those flowers didn’t last very long or wilted quickly! Elho have a lovely range of planters with the Brussels Orchid Duo and the Brussels Bowl being perfect for orchids or flowering plants! These planters come in a range of lovely colours so there’s

Valentine’s Day On A Budget

John and I never really end up doing too much for Valentine’s Day. I remember one of our first together, back when I lived in Nottingham and he lived here in Norfolk. We spent the weekend in Norwich in an apartment and I was ill for most of it with the flu. Since then, we’ve never really made a big deal of it or done anything too extravagant. Now that we have Erin to think about, bills to pay and nursery fees to find, we really don’t have much money to spend on each other or to go out and

The Problem With A New Year’s Day Birthday

In some ways, Erin being born on New Year’s Day is something pretty amazing. When she’s older I can’t wait to let her stay up to watch the fireworks to celebrate her birthday and I can’t wait for that to be something really special that we can do together each year. However, there are loads of reasons why having a New Year’s Day birthday really sucks! We live in a small-ish town in North Norfolk and neither me or John drive. This means that there are very few options for things to do. For Erin’s first birthday we went into

Adventurer’s Christmas Gift Guide 2017

Something I love most in life is to travel and discover new places. I love holidays, hotel stays, weekends away and delicious meals. Now, these places may be abroad, they may be in the UK and they might be right on our doorstep in Norfolk. Today’s post is a bit different. Today is the Adventurer’s Christmas Gift Guide. If you know someone who loves going abroad a passport cover is a great gift to give. Maid In China have something really unique for anyone who loves to travel. This Stitch Passport cover comes complete with needle and thread for you to mark

Women’s Christmas Gift Guide 2017

Today I’m bringing you our Women’s Christmas Gift Guide. If you, or the women you know, are anything like me then you will like a whole range of things. Sometimes this can make me easy to buy for and sometimes it means there is too much choice! Hopefully you find some inspiration amongst these wonderful gifts! I love to be pampered, and to pamper myself and one of my favourite things to do is to paint my nails. Leighton Denny have such a fantastic range of products and there is so much to choose from! The A/W17 range of nail

Men’s Christmas Gift Guide 2017

Men can sometimes be an absolute pain to buy for. Sometimes it may be a case of someone not really liking anything that you can buy, having expensive taste or just not really wanting anything. I’m not one for just giving gifts like socks and aftershave, although there’s nothing wrong with that if you do, so I’ve come up with what I think is quite a well rounded Men’s Christmas Gift Guide for 2017! Dobell are a great website for menswear and earlier in the year John got a lovely shirt and tie from them to wear to a wedding!

Toddlers Christmas Gift Guide 2017

Erin will be 2 on New Year’s Day so we’re always on the look out for things to buy her either for Christmas or her birthday. Everything happening in the space of a week means quite a lot of planning on our part. With Erin getting presents so close to each other, I like to try to make what she gets varied and different and I think our Toddlers Christmas Gift Guide for 2017 reflects this! Erin got her first Duplo set for her birthday last year and she spends hours playing with it! This Pizzeria Set is adorable and comes
