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…

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 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 every year…

Behind the scenes: I’ve got a new job!

It’s 8:56pm, and a balmy 22 degrees. I’m sitting in my garden. I’ve just finished a 10km bike ride in the evening sun (so I’m a little on the sweaty side…). I’ve also popped open a celebratory beer… why? Because today was my very last day working for Thorntons! If you don’t know me personally, you might not be aware that I’ve worked in the Thorntons marketing team for almost 4 years now. Yep, it’s literally been my job to…
