Becoming an Editor: An Insider’s Guide

When I’m not blogging or parenting, my 9-5 job is as an editor for a property website. The title of ‘Editor’ was something I always aspired to have, and I thought I’d share my experiences, what I’ve done and how I got to this point. I have also worked as a freelance writer, so I’ve…

Date nights at home*

Since Dougie was born, date nights for Sam and I have changed considerably. Of course we can always get a babysitter and go out together, but that isn’t always possible. Dougie usually goes to bed around 7pm, so once he’s settled, we make the most of spending time together. I thought I’d share some of…

All the little things: January

It’s the end of January! For once this month hasn’t flown by, but it hasn’t really dragged for me. It’s been pretty busy and tiring, and I’m definitely looking forward to longer, lighter days! Here are a few of my favourite moments from the last month… Book I’m really proud of how much I’ve read…

Making memories last with Photowall

One of my favourite things to do is get photos printed. While I love having photos on my laptop and phone and scrolling through them, there’s nothing quite like holding the physical images. Our flat is absolutely filled with memories – we have photos of us from over the year, prints from the Wildlife Photography…

My 2017

This has been the most amazing year for me. I wanted to do a round-up of some of my favourite 2017 moments and memories. There have been a lot, so I’ll try to be concise…

Driving home for Christmas*

I’m so looking forward to the Christmas break. Both Sam and I have a few days off work, and now Dougie is older, although he doesn’t understand what Christmas is, he can sense the excitement and he’s definitely enjoying all the Christmas lights and trees that are around!

Find the perfect gift with The Night Sky

This year has been full of special dates; we celebrated Dougie’s first birthday, it was our five-year anniversary and we got married earlier this month. I wanted to get something really special to mark these occasions, but I wasn’t sure what, and then I discovered The Night Sky*. When you walk into our home, you’ll…

All the little things: November

I AM SO SAD THAT NOVEMBER IS OVER. This was the most incredible month. I can’t even put into words how special this month has been for me, but I’ll try! Obviously most of this month revolved around the wedding and honeymoon, so this is going to be quite a soppy monthly round-up I’m sure!…

Top things to do in Playa del Carmen

As some of you may know, I’ve just come back from a Doug-less honeymoon – two weeks in Playa del Carmen, a coastal town in Mexico… The area has beautiful beaches, plenty of shops, bars and restaurants and a lot of places to explore. The area itself is pretty touristy, though I’ve read it’s not…

DIY autumnal wedding

After falling into an inevitable Pinterest-shaped hole, I had so many ideas for our wedding. We were really running with the autumnal theme, and there were so many beautiful ideas for how we could personalise the day and really make it ours.

All the little things: October

October has been one of the best months so far this year. It’s also been one of the busiest, and pretty stressful at times as we’re getting married in a few days (!!!!) but we’ll get there. Here are a few of my favourite things from this month…

How to be the perfect autumn blogger

I love autumn, I really do. I’m all about cosy nights and chunky knitwear, plus it’s my birthday season and this year is our wedding, so to me, autumn is the most wonderful time of the year.  I also love how autumnal everyone’s posts become, and how Instagram slowly transitions into reds, golds and oranges,…
