    Sustainable Mother’s Day Gifts

    So with Mother’s Day fast approaching us this Sunday, I decided that today I would post a last minute gift guide with some thought behind it. So I’ve put together a sustainable Mother’s Day guide. Obviously we all want to treat our Mum’s to something nice for all that they do for us, but often people struggle to find that perfect gift. Working in retail I have seen the last minute panic where people will just buy anything for the sake of giving a gift, when in actual fact said present might not even be to their Mum’s taste. The suggestions I’m giving today are all sustainable and ethical and…

    March To Do List

    So we’re already in March, the year is steaming on ahead and I’ve decided to jot down everything I want to achieve this month. A kind of March to do list.  It might be interesting to you, it might not, but it also then holds me accountable to tick everything off my virtual to-do list for the next few weeks. A lot of my goals are very much University related, any student will tell you that around Easter is an absolute nightmare for deadlines and they all seem to come at once. So that leads me nicely onto my biggest and most important aim for the month. I want/need my…

    I’m Doing A Dechox (Again)

    Today’s post will just be a short one to quickly update you about something that I’m doing throughout the month of March. If some of you have been around for a while, 1 year to be precise, you may remember that last year I took part in the Dechox for the British Heart Foundation. Well I’m doing it again because it’s for such a great cause! I’m giving up chocolate for the whole of March in return for sponsorship for BHF. It’s an amazing charity and they are working to reduce the number of deaths from the UK’s biggest killer, Heart Disease. The charity helps fund research and support for…

    Frost/Nixon: A Night At The Theatre

    So last night myself and Danielle headed to the Crucible Theatre in Sheffield to go and see their latest production, Frost/Nixon! The lovely Ellie who works there invited me and my plus one over for a blogger event with some other local Sheffield Bloggers. We began the night with a Frosty Nixon cocktail or two made by the guys over at Crucible Corner  before the show. I couldn’t believe how much I liked a cocktail that contained gin, vodka, tequila AND rum (I usually hate 3/4 of those spirits)! When we arrived we found they’d thrown us an entire 70’s party, disco ball and everything! They had the best playlist I’ve…

    Big Magic Book Review

    So I’m pretty certain this post is my first proper book review. I’ve mentioned books before and briefly given an overview in favourites posts but I’ve never focussed a post solely on one book before. I’m putting it out there now I will go into a bit of detail, but in theory because it’s not fiction there can’t really be any terrible spoilers. You might have heard talk about Big Magic over the last couple of years, and rightly so. I first heard about it through word of mouth from other bloggers and YouTubers, it seems to be a bit of a bible to us online lot. It’s written by…
