    My Dream Future (a day in the life)

    I have been thinking about my life and how it seems to be going well recently, however, don’t we all think of our perfect life & what dreams we have for the future if you could change it… My perfect ideal day would go just like this… I wake up to my husband saying it is a weekend and we have the day to ourselves. We go downstairs to the smell of bacon and a breakfast being cooked. We sit at the table and eat our food with a glass of orange juice each, maybe apple juice instead. We look at the local paper and social media which shows what events are…

    My journey with food, & beyond.

    I have been musing about what to add on my blog and I thought why not Food & Drink? Let me take you on a journey as to why I love this topic so much… When I was a child I loved going out to places and loved to eat a lot. A favourite place I used to love in Cardiff Bay was a fish and chip restaurant centred next to Techniquest. It was a lovely place and it had some memories I will treasure forever of going there with my dearly beloved nan. Scroll on to 2000s, I was an anti-food snob and barely ate anything but ready meals and…

    Halloween 2018

    So it’s that time again where we all get dressed up and spooky. This is my opinion on Halloween. When I was a child I used to love the dressing up & Trick or Treating with family members. I remember one too many times I was dressed in a bin liner (I’m not a cheap inspo honestly) as a witch, with the hat & broomstick! I loved it even though it didn’t cost much and I only visited a few houses. This whole routine went on for a good ten years and I don’t remember if I even enjoyed it toward the end. I firmly believe that Halloween is for the children,…

    HOW TO: Start a blog (& maintain it)

    This is a common post most bloggers end up creating – about how they survived the first few months blogging. It is crucial that in the first few months you don’t give up as they are the most challenging of all the months. After you have established a brand or started working with brands hopefully it will get easier. I’m not quite at that level yet but I am actively searching for brands to collaborate with, in 2019. Anyway, here’s my top 5 tips… 1. Make sure you have content ready BEFORE making your blog. This is important because when you first open your blog and ask people to view it, you…

    September = School, right?

    So it’s September already. Well, technically it’s mid-September 2018. As far as I can remember September always reminded me of school. Even now it still does. September in my head always reminds me of that “back to school” vibe that everyone in the blogging community uses year after year, well here’s my version… As a library volunteer with a library next to a school that often uses our services, it dawns on me when school is open & closed. We very often see the classes from the school come into the library to collect their books for the term, normally there is a theme such as animals or trains that the…
