I am really looking forward to Spring! Winter months really gets me down.

I'm not a big fan of the cold days and dark evenings. All I really want to do is lock myself away until the warmer weather. No chance of that though.

Fool Proof Guide To Dressing Well This Valentines Day...


A few weeks ago Matalan kindly asked me if I would like to take part in a fun fashion Valentines challenge: A Fool Proof Guide To Dressing Well This Valentines Day. How cool!?

Anything that involves getting dressed up and sharing some of my ideas, always sounds like lots of fun.

Staying In Or Going Out On Valentine's Day?


Love is in the air so that must mean one thing; Valentine's Day is just around the corner. 💑🎕

Are you a fan of Valentine's day? 

Do you like to go out somewhere special on Valentine's day? Or do you prefer to stay indoors to cook a nice romantic meal in the comfort of your own home. Or maybe you just treat it like any other day. 


Festive Lights have recently ran a survey on 500 adults in the UK and asked them "Would you rather stay in or go out this Valentine's Day?"

The results have revealed that 63% of people surveyed would prefer to stay in. You can read all about it here: 63 % Of People Prefer To Stay In And Cook On Valentine's Day.

Coffee Shop Treat: Weekend Blog Hop..


Welcome to this weeks weekend blog hop. The children have both broke up from school yesterday for the week so hopefully it is non stop fun here.

It is so cold outside today. They have forecast maybe a showing of snow here today. Keep warm guys!!


My eldest son treated me to a drink inside our local Costa last week. Although I had never been inside for drink before so I did not know what to pick. I went for a cappuccino and it tasted amazing. The cup was huge though and I was buzzing walking around the park all afternoon with Mollie.

You can imagine my eyes when I seen his hot chocolate though. Another one of my favourite drinks. Why did I not pick that!? Haha!!

It was lovely spending time with my son as we don't get to catch up much as he is at Uni.

Today I am taking you on a little trip to Nottingham and around The Market Square. Me and my daughter went out on Saturday for a girly shopping trip and notice the big wheel of Nottingham is back up until March. The weather was amazing. You could have easily mistaken it for a beautiful Spring day.
