For my 30th birthday I had a big Gatsby party at a local hotel. I chose a Gatsby theme as I love the book and I thought it was appropriate to celebrate the end of my 20’s with a 20’s theme. Continue reading “How To Make Gatsby Envelopes for Party Invites”
Last year I decided to make Christmas Eve boxes for the kiddies. I had heard of others doing it and thought it was a lovely idea so decided to replicate it and introduce it as a new Christmas tradition in our house. We always have a house full at Christmas so naturally the kids are pretty wound up, I thought the boxes might give them something to focus on before bedtime on Christmas Eve.

There are certain ‘buzz words’ that float around every year. This year one word that I seem to be hearing a lot is Hygge (pronounced hue-gah). Hygge is a Danish word that cannot be translated exactly into one single English word. It’s more a way of life than a word. The best way to describe it is as a lifestyle craze, one of maximum comfort and coziness. It’s all about living well and living simply.

Last weekend we were invited along to an event run by A Touch of the Wild. They are a forest school company in Devon. Both of our kiddies used to go to forest school twice a week before they started school, I think they both miss it. They always used to come home covered head to toe in mud proudly clutching their latest woodland inspired artwork. Continue reading “A Touch of the Wild”
It’s no secret that Autumn is my most favourite time of year. I love everything about it from the mass of gorgeous colours everywhere you look to the cozy evenings tucked up at home. Continue reading “Autumn Bucket List”
Over the last couple of years my sleeping pattern has became very irregular, I constantly wake in the night for no apparent reason which is very frustrating and leaves me feeling exhausted in the morning. Couple that with a dose of sleep paralysis at least once a week it’s really starting to effect my day to day life. Continue reading “Hypnosis for Stress Relief & Better Sleep”
Last week I was invited along to a ‘not a wedding’ yurt event taking place in a secret walled garden in Devon. Anyone that knows me will know that this sort of event is right up my street. I would live in a yurt if I could convince the other half that it was a good idea. So far he’s not convinced, not even a tiny bit but I’m hoping to wear him down eventually.

Zero waste is a concept that I have become increasingly interested in. After studying environmental and energy studies at university it became very clear that recycling is not the answer! The answer is to create less waste in the first place. If we have less waste to start with there is less waste to have to deal with. It’s quite simple when you stop to think about it.
