Book Review: Enjoy Time by Catherine Blythe

Do you enjoy time? I have to say that up until recently I really haven’t. I spend my days chasing my tail, rushing to and from school, racing to after school clubs and squeezing in a couple of hours work before crashing in bed.  All for it to start again the next day. I have been reading self-improvement books for …

What everyone should know about cooking a Christmas turkey

Whenever I tell anyone my favourite meat is turkey, they never understand why and ask how I can love such a dry meat.  But I have never found it dry.  Unless it is cooked wrong. Which coincidentally, is how most people tend to cook theirs.  I remember a couple of years ago, we’d gone out for Sunday lunch and I’d …

The gift that keeps on giving, from Halfords

I’ve never had my own bike, not even as a child. Well, I had hand-me-downs from my cousins, always boy bikes with the high frame. Always dented, always scuffed, never truly mine.  Until now.

But each year I leave everything to the last minute and end …

Introducing a UK-first in skincare from Seven Seas

Some products work, some don’t but I’ve got my daily beauty routine perfected now, after starting aged 11. I’d been told from an early age …

Take the chore out of ironing with La Vaporella

I can’t stand ironing.  And yet here I am writing all about an iron.  Why? Because I bloomin’ well love this iron. No joke.  I have always owned bog-standard irons, ones that plug in and you pour the water straight into the iron itself. I thought they were the norm and so I just put-up with their sub-standard performance. Well, …

Haven holiday at Perran Sands, Cornwall

Inside: A look at our Haven holiday at Perran Sands in Cornwall Holidays have always meant going abroad for me, being able to escape the British weather and explore the wonderful world we live in. But that has meant that we’ve totally overlooked the beauty that the British countryside has to offer! Over the last few years, we have come to …
