Life lately… September 2017

Whoa, September has been a busy ol’ month! In some respects, it’s zoomed by… but I also cannot believe quite how much has happened in just four weeks. It was definitely a month of two halves. I started off in full-on summer mode, reminiscing about my San Francisco holiday. But now we’re at the end of the month, I’m definitely in the autumn zone. I’m day dreaming of pumpkins and golden brown leaves!    Like I say, way back at the start…

Look inside my San Francisco travel scrapbook…

I’m really excited to share something a little different with you guys today… a look through my San Francisco travel scrapbook! Now, I’m not much of a scrapbooker, so don’t judge me too hard. But I thought I’d give it a try during my trip last month. Gareth and I made this scrapbook as we went along during the holiday (instead of letting everything stack up, leaving us with loads of stuff to stick in when we got home). This…

Watch my San Francisco video

I’m feeling some major post-holiday blues. I’ve been back in the UK for 2 weeks now, following my epic week-long trip to San Francisco. You’d think I’d be over it by now, but nope; I’m still day-dreaming of California… You know when you visit somewhere and it just clicks? I seriously could’ve stayed there and not come home! I can’t put my finger on what it was that I loved so much about San Francisco. The city just has SO MUCH…

California Dreaming…

Hi guys! I’m writing just a quick blog today, to let you all in on some exciting news… I’m going to San Francisco tomorrow! A whole 8 days holidaying in California: seeing the sights, eating far too much food, and taking zillions of photos. I am so excited! I’ll try my best to share updates over on my Instagram Stories – so make sure to follow me, if you’re not already. Also, Gareth and I have decided to do something a little different…

Christmas… in August?!

Ahh, it’s that time of year already. Christmas trees, mince pies, gifts from Santa… hold up, what do you mean it’s only August?! No, I’m not crazy I might be getting into the festive spirit a little early, but it’s all in the name of craft! Last weekend, I spent the day at the Trimcraft offices in Nottingham to see a special preview of their 2017 Christmas ranges. Yep, a day full of Christmas crafts. It was awesome. The team really…

But first, let’s back it up a little and explore what a Cricut is… So, what is a…

A weekend in Loch Lomond (video)

A few weeks ago, I spent a long weekend on the shores of the beautiful Loch Lomond in Scotland. It was incredible! I’ve been to Scotland a few times before, but I’ve mostly stuck to the big cities – so it was a really nice change to explore the countryside and little villages sleeping aids scattered along the way. I went there with a bunch of old school friends of mine. We try and go on a weekend break together…
