Life // Five Happy Things 

I feel like chatty posts are my jam at the minute and after a month of a lot of sponsored content, I’m happy to chat about the things I’m loving in diary stye entries. I’m gonna put it out there that I don’t have any festive content planned yet which I really should think about…….

Home // Dear Diary

After a series of sponsored posts and beauty blogs, I wanted to bring you another site ‘down and write’ kinda post. I can’t believe we’re into December tomorrow. The year has flown over in a blur with this year’s stand out moments being getting a new job and our dog, Molly. As we gear up for…

Party // Easy Mocktail Recipes with Feelgood 

December is nearly upon us and I’m already thinking about my much-needed time off over the festive season. But it’s not all mulled wine and mince pies as I’m actually working a lot so won’t be able to indulge in as much red wine and prosecco as I would like….which is why having a couple…

Fashion // Met Quarter Xmas Preview

The big C isn’t too far away so now’s the time to start getting excited, planning when to decorate the tree and discover just how many presents you need. Or, it’s a time to starting thinking about what to add to your own wishlist to unwrap on the 25th December! Back in October, I was…

Home // Neal & Wolf Indulgence Candle

I’m such a fan of candles in my home, especially at this time of year. Now it’s dark when I get home from work, I love to get changed into my comfy clothes (leggings and an oversized tee), get snuggly on the sofa whilst dinner is cooking and light some candles. Anything that creates a…

Interiors // Creating a home

Personal style within your home I think is something that comes from the people within it. I often look on Instagram and Pinterest for #inspo on up-cycling our very old, and quite frankly, hand-me-down furniture and new ways we can update our rented house. But I think what’s most important is creating memories and a…

Review // Ragdale Hall, Hydro Spa & Hotel 

Before I even begin I will start with a warning – this post is photo heavy. Ragdale Hall was so beautifully decorated, I couldn’t resist getting snap happy to show you just how amazing it was! Ragdale Hall is situated at the very heart of the country, making it a 2 and a half hour trip…

Beauty // Glitter Smokey Eye Makeup 

Sometimes it’s nice to have a root through your makeup collection and rediscover old favourites. And that was exactly what I did when packing for my recent trip to Ragdale Hall. I’m really enjoying dark, opulent looks at the minute – vampy red lips and a bold eye. I know, I know, the MUA’s say one…

Review // Il Forno, Duke Street, Liverpool 

When we’re choosing new restaurants to try in the city, Italian rarely makes it past the consideration phase. With so many new and old haunts in the L1 postcode, when an invite to sample the pre-theatre menu arrived, we popped along after a cinema trip to see Doctor Strange (which, FYI was awesome!). As the…

Online // Sharing Blogger Love

When I began blogging, some crazy 6 years ago now, blogging was quite an underground hobby. Having initially started Musings of Ruby, as this very site was named back then due to my bright red hair, the blogging community was small, fierce and loyal across social media. But nothing compared to what it is now,…

Beauty //  New Purchases ft Urban Decay Kat Von D

Okay so I’ve gotta put it out there before I even start this post. … I frickin’ love these photos! I’m really trying to play around with backgrounds to make my blog photos look a bit more interesting and I just adore the black and white theme on this post! It’s been a while since…

Beauty // Debenhams Glamoween 

I thought Halloween would pass me by this year as I haven’t got any concrete plans to celebrate but when an invite to Debenhams Glamoween event landed in my inbox a couple of weeks ago, I had to go along for a nosey! The event consisted of two 30 minute masterclasses with a ghoulish twist!…
