Smart Shopping: Ebay Picks

I always refer to myself a ‘weekend millionare’ as I’m that friend who on a night out tends to go a little cray cray with the ole bank card splashing out on drinks and treating my friends. However lately I’ve found this also applies to my shopping habits. Over the  past 18 months I’ve really…

Flowers in bloom: National Trust Days Out

Wow, a whole week ago now I attended the Vintage Festival at Speke Hall and Garden. Until the festival I had never heard of or been to Speke Hall before so I was looking forward to seeing what they were all about. It is a National Trust property and is described as a hidden oasis on…

Vintage Festival: Let’s go shopping

Sorry if this is getting repetitive but this is the second to last post from the Vintage Festival at Speke Hall on Sunday. I have focused previously on the cakes stalls and the classic cars, however this post is all about the two stalls we treated ourselves to a little something from- ‘Vintage Fairytale’ a…

For the foodie fans: Vintage Festival

Following on from my post earlier this week from the Vintage Festival at Speke Hall, this is the 2nd post from the day. There was so much to see I ended up taking nearly 100 photo’s and rather than reduce them down to one post, I feel it’s only fair to split them into a…

Speke Hall: A very vintage day out

Recently I was lucky enough to be invited to the Vintage Festival at Speke Hall in Liverpool which took place this weekend at a fantastic National Trust property featuring a restored Tudor house and gardens. The festival was on for 2 days over the weekend and my bestie Natalie and I took a trip over today to see what…

Summertime Dreaming

With the heatwave reaching its peak this week and it being so hot whilst we’ve been at work I was definitely ready for a lazy Saturday spent chilling in the garden and re-reading this week’s magazines and soaking up the sun. Seems Mr Weatherman had a different idea with clouds appearing and keeping the sunshine…

Under the Sea: North West days out at Sea Life Manchester

Follow my blog with Bloglovin This week to beat the Monday blues, my bestie and I decided to take advantage of the gorgeous weather and book a holiday off work and take a trip to the Sea Life Manchester which has recently opened at Barton Square at the Trafford Centre in the North West. My bestie’s little…

On a Sunday afternoon….

Lazy Sundays are the best and with 2013 treating us to a proper summer in July, weekends spent in the sun with your favourites just seem that little bit sweeter. And today was one of those. A little relaxing in the garden started the day and then the afternoon kicked off with a visit to…

The beauty of magazine samples

Magazine samples are a thing of wonder but more often than not, I cast them aside. As an avid magazine buyer, (we’re talking around 5 each week), the stick-in samples can stock up. However, over the past couple of weeks I have been collecting them rather than binning and keeping in an old Glossybox- turns…

Nails Ahoy

I’ve spoken about my love for nail varnish on my blog before, but it cant hurt to talk about it some more! I’m one of those girls who can’t have what I call, ‘naked nails’. Each to their own, but to me looking down and seeing nude nails is just vile. I love colour and…

Glastonbury 2013- Another year at Worthy Farm!

Glastonbury is over for another year and I have returned a broken woman. The weather was truly amazing. After becoming a little obsessed with BBC Weather prior to the festival, the sun did indeed shine and it made for a fantastic 5 days. Highlights included Dizzee Rascal, Mumford and Sons, Chase and Status and Ben…
