15 Things I Lie About (Almost!) Daily

Day to day, we are faced with opportunities to either tell the truth, or to tell a fib. I have a confession to make: I’m a big fat liar. I tell a lie pretty much every single day, mostly to myself. And you probably tell a few porkies too. Don’t agree? Have a read of my little white lies and see if they change your mind! “Just five more minutes in bed.” Let’s face it. That’s just an outright lie. I’ll probably snooze my alarm another 5 times. “Wow, I’ve totally nailed the winged eyeliner today… sort of.” Well, I…

It’s okay not to celebrate Valentine’s Day

Okay, this is kind of a spontaneous post, which I’ve not done before (spontaneity can lead to regret!) but hey ho. I’m currently sat in bed feeling lonely because my boyfriend has gone off to work for the day. Sure, I’d love him to be here with me snuggling, but he’s doing overtime because he’s in the process of creating us the perfect home, and to do that, we need money. So what’s more romantic than that?! The fact he’s gone to work on Valentine’s Day so that he can buy us the perfect sofa, or treat us to a…

Let Me Tell You This #2

Firstly, a quick apology for this post going up a tad late today. You may have seen on Twitter that I was a little drunk last night – whoops! From Friday to Monday, I trialled Herbalife’s four day healthy breakfast plan. After finishing the trial, I’d lost 3 and half pounds (yes, in just four days!), gained a whole pound of muscle, as well as losing 13.5cm from various parts of my body. Result! The lovely Chloe shared with us what exactly goes on in her head when she worries – and man could I relate. I live in constant…

Alone this Valentines? Have a date with yourself!

As you all know, the day of love is just around the corner. A day when red rose sales are at an ultimate high, jewellery is flying off the shelves, and restaurants are overflowing with happy couples. But what if you’re alone this Valentine’s? Your partner might not believe in the holiday (*cough cough* Damian!), or you could live apart. Maybe you’re happily married with children and time together seems an impossibility, or maybe you’ve just not found the special one yet. Then what? Then you have a date with yourself for the night, and here are some fabulous ways…

Planning My Year with Stick to Stigu

Let me start with a happy belated new year, and apologies for the lack of blog posts! My January has been incredibly hectic due to it being that horrid time of the year – semester one exams. I’m half way through them now and so wanted to show you what I’m using to plan my 2016. Stick to Stigu kindly sent me their planner* to start my year with, and I can safely say I’ve not loved a planner so much in my life. It’s been kept by my side daily, and I’ve enjoyed planning my days week by week.…

Getting Cake Through the Letterbox with Baker Days + Giveaway

When someone mentions cake, my ears immediately send a signal to my brain to make me want cake. I love cake. I also love coming home to post that’s come through my letterbox. So imagine if there was a way cake could come through my letterbox too. What a combination! Well, imagine no more, and instead look towards Baker Days! When Baker Days got in touch with me via Twitter to ask if would like to review cake by post, it’s no surprise that I jumped at the chance and contacted them straight away. After choosing the type of cake…
