Autumn Leaves Suncatcher Craft

Autumn has well and truly hit my little corner of the UK. The mornings are dark and misty, the nursery run is a bit soggy and the leaves have started to change colour.

I really, really love Autumn. I love the smells, the cosy nights in, the knitwear, the boots and, of course, the candles. It’s probably my favourite season – bonus points for Halloween falling slap bang in the middle of it; need I say more? Autumn is the season for crafting! For getting creative with beautiful colours, getting dark and spooky for halloween and enjoying some really fun activities.

This suncatcher craft uses tissue paper inspired by the beautiful colours of autumn leaves.

Monthly Bucket List: September ’16

I love me a good monthly bucket list. Usually I would link to the previous months list and cross off all the tasks I managed to get done, however, due to my lack of solid blogging lately, that seems a bit pointless this month.

Plus, yes, I know, it’s late! I guess I had better get my bum into gear…

This September, I am keen to get my life back on track and become a bit more organised. Don’t go expecting any miracles, but as part of my “learning to love myself” thing I have going on at the moment, organising my life a little seems like a jolly good place to start.

August Favourites ’16

I’m late…again! I love Monthly Favourite posts, but I am awful at getting them out on time! This past month has been particularly busy for me, but I’m incredibly proud of myself for the things I have achieved and the way in which I have managed to stay sane throughout the whole of August. Hi five for me!

I may have had a bit of a blogging break recently, but my spare time has not been going to waste. I have met a whole bunch of new people, tried some new experiences, found new things that I absolutely love and, something I’m most excited and proud about – I’ve become a bit more comfortable with myself and maybe even a tad more confident. I’m not saying I’m anywhere near 100% there; it’s a long journey when it comes to loving and accepting yourself, but I’m at the beginning of that journey now and it feels really, really nice.

A/W Dorothy Perkins Sale Wishlist

When it comes to Autumn and Winter clothing, I want to be wearing nice affordable clothing in bright, happy colours – it’s my own personal “so there” to the dreary grey that looms over Britain this time of year. However, even the most colourful of people cannot escape the pull of the deep purples and reds that are so classically Autumnal. So as summer comes to an end, I’ve been checking out some bits and bobs currently available in the Dorothy Perkins sale – these are my top A/W 2016 picks.

Biscuit Decorating

The summer holidays are upon us – we’re half way through week 2! Unfortunately, British summers aren’t always ‘all that’, and there are inevitably going to be days where its grey and over cast outside, or, more likely, there’s a torrential downfall. That’s why we all need to have some back up activities on hand, today I’m sharing biscuit decorating! Quick, easy, probably free (if you have a few cheeky biccies hiding in your cupboard like I do) and most of all, fun.

Life Update

I’ve been pretty absent from the blog scene lately and almost all social media except for my personal facebook account. This is because I’ve had a lot going on in my personal life and I’ve had to spend time adjusting to a whole bunch of new challenges and situations.

282_1

Some may remember that last year, I got engaged. Unfortunately, over the past fair few months, that relationship has started to fall apart and we ended up going our seperate ways. So recenetly, I’ve just been focusing my attention on this whole single mum malarkey, trying to guide Luke through any emotional problems he might be facing – like missing his step dad – and trying to plan my days around making sure everything I need to do gets done in the day. Hence why, unfortunately, blogging has taken a little bit of a back seat.

But now things are starting to look up a bit – I’ve had a fairly decent stretch of time now to sort things out and I’m starting to balance and manage things a little better. That means more time for blogging – yay!

I remember the whole reason I started blogging was to have a little break away from real life and express my opinions and talk about what I’ve been up to in life, without the heavy weight of the world judging me sitting on my shoulders. I’m hoping that, once again, blogging can be my little escape and a place for me to be me again!

Review: Garnier Ultimate Blends Honey Treasures Conditioner

I do a lot of crazy things with my hair. I style it using heat, I bleach it, I pull it about when creating my hair-do (I do love a good braid!) and I dye it frequently. Obviously, all of that takes it’s toll and my hair therefore ends up damaged and brittle and, well, it just ends up feeling a bit straw-like. It’s not nice!

The last time I bleached my hair, I decided enough was enough and I needed to find a nice decent high street brand conditioner that works towards healing and fixing damaged hair but doesn’t come with a hefty price tag. Luckily for me, I came across the Garnier Ultimate Blends Honey Treasures Conditioner.

Creation Station: Spring Tree Blossom

All this good weather lately is making me SO ready for summer. I am a total sun creature, I just can’t get enough of it and I definitely can’t complain about the great mood it puts me in. But unfortunately, we’re not quite there yet and Spring has that bad habit of throwing some lovely days out there and then chucking in a few days in a row of torrential rain. It’s on these rainy days that we could do with some fun and bright activities to keep our spirits up.

I had loads of spare paper left over from making a whole bunch of beautiful origami hearts for Valentine’s day, so I grabbed my flower shaped paper punch and some other bits and bobs and set up a spring tree blossom creation station.
