Gaining a little weight and body confidence


This post comes to you from my Summer holiday in Kos, now I don't know about you, but summer holidays are a hotbed of anxiety around my body confidence issues. I'm not sure what's the perfect bikini beach body, but I am sure I do not have it........

Holiday beauty essentials



I feel like I've mentioned this once or twice previously, but in case you didn't know, I'm going on holiday in less than a week. We are flying off to sunny Kos an island we have visited several times, and  keep going back. This time we have upgraded and are staying in a more swish hotel then we are used to, which i'm so looking forward to, will be nice to have a little bit of luxury, we could both certainly do with relaxing, there is also a spa, so can anticipate a massage at some point.

Anywho, on to my Holiday Beauty Essentials, and what I will be packing in my suitcase.

2019 Travel Bucket list


Although we have yet to go on our 2018 Summer holiday, I am of course already thinking ahead to next year. Now my boys are older, my husband and I have decided it is our time to travel more, see more places, do more things, eat more food and of course drink more cocktails!!


2019 travel bucket list

There are so many places we haven't visited together and are on our bucket list. We are both big fans of Greece and have visited a few places, but the beauty of the Greek islands is there are so many to choose from, so Number 1 on our list would certainly be Greece. In fact we are off to Kos later this month, but Halkidiki and Crete are both islands we have yet to visit.

Next up for me I think would be Croatia, I have seen or heard so many people talk about how beautiful the country is, although it is a downer they beat us in the world cup, I won't hold that against them, those beaches look just too beautiful to pass up.

Another place that interests us is Portugal, I went many years ago and loved the sandy coved beaches, and would love to go back again this time with the Mr, the seafood is devine and I think my husband would love the Piri Piri chicken he does like a bit of spice. 

Malta has also made it onto this bucket list, the coastline looks simply stunning and the history really interests us, we don't just lay by the pool, eating and drinking cocktails, we do like a bit of culture thrown in.

When it comes to booking a holiday I like it to be an easy process and of course a good price (saves more money for those aforementioned cocktails) Holiday Gems, have loads of holidays to pick from at reasonable prices, the website is easy peasy to use, and they give you a bit of background on the area you are planning on visiting. They also offer not just the traditional 7/14 day holidays, but shorter durations to.

Everything on this list is in Europe and not that far, for us that's because there are so many countries on our doorstep we have yet to visit, plus the short flight times mean its possible to schedule these places in as a short break, meaning more holidays and that cannot be a bad thing........

What's on your travel bucket list? I would love to know.

Thinking about a vegan lifestyle and is it right for me


Going vegan, living a vegan lifestyle and the possible health benefits of a plant based diet have been highly publicised in the last few years, with many celebrities and influencers shouting from the rooftops about the lifestyle. The movement has certainly gained momentum and supermarkets are bringing out vegan friendly products on the weekly, making it so much easier to go vegan.

Living room makeover wishlist


This year my home has been having a bit of a revamp, redecorating our bedroom, dining room, kitchen and hallway. We then took a break, because A) had had enough of painting and B) money, decorating is an expensive affair.

7 under £7 beauty edit



I am a beauty lover, but I also like a bargain, and cannot see the point in buying an expensive product, when a cheaper brand does what I want. I'm not saying I do not use some pricier products because I do, but they have to earn their right to be in my beauty stash, and I will often try cheaper brands first before taking the plunge and buying something a bit more expensive.

Feeling forgotten by fashion


This is a post that has been brewing for a while, and is something that I feel strongly, and it's about time I talked about how I'm
Feeling forgotten by fashion

I have loved fashion, clothes, trends for as long as I can remember, my mum has regaled a conversation with me as a 2 year old, refusing to wear a dress on many an occasion. And later I distinctly remember trying my damndest to ruin some school shoes I hated. Of course through my teenage years I made some questionable choices when it came to fashion, and my God why, would I refuse to wear a coat even though it was cold, because it would hide said questionable outfit.
