Watch my 1 Second A Day 2018 video

Happy New Year! This blog post has, quite literally, been a whole year in the making. For every day of 2018, I’ve been filming a 1 second clip of something I did… and it’s finally time to share the finished compilation! This video charts my entire year, from the exciting to the mundane, the highs to the lows. It’s a visual diary of 2018 from my perspective – something I can keep forever, and look back on when I’m an…

Utah National Parks Video: Canyonlands and Arches

It’s official: I’m hooked on American National Parks. As part of my recent trip to Salt Lake City, I spent a few days exploring the National Parks of south-eastern Utah. From the massive expanses of Canyonlands, to the sculpted beauty of Arches… I’ve honestly never seen anything like it before. It even surpassed my trip to Yosemite National Park last year, when I camped overnight deep within the forest. I’m already day-dreaming of my next National Park adventure! Our Utah…

A Week in Salt Lake City, Utah (video!)

Hopefully you guys saw my post last week, all about the Cricut Make-A-Thon conference? The super cool folks at Cricut flew me out for the event… but I decided to expand on the trip and turn it into a little holiday, too! Gotta make the most of that 9 hour transatlantic flight. ? Gareth and I landed in Salt Lake three days before the conference, which gave us a good bit of time to explore the city. You guys, we loved…

A mini break in Lisbon, Portugal (with video!)

I ticked a big item off my bucket list earlier this month. I spent a long weekend in Lisbon, one of the foodie capitals of Europe! It was every bit as picturesque and dreamy as I was hoping. We spent 4 days exploring colourful streets, eating custard tarts (SO TASTY) and strolling along the waterfront. You’d never suspect it from the photos, but the weather was a bit hit-and-miss (we got caught in a huuuge rainstorm on the first day). But we…

I’m a Singer brand ambassador!

I’ve been sewing for about 10 years now (wowzers, that makes me feel old…). I love it. I started off by teaching myself how to sew the basics, like straight seams, button holes and applique. Over the years, I’ve gotten to know my sewing machine so much better – and the quality of my creations has definitely improved. Want to know something surprising? Until this week, I was still using my very first sewing machine on all of my projects!…

NYE in Bruges, Belgium (video)

I know, I know; New Year’s Eve is a distant memory. But I’m gonna revisit it for one last blog post, I hope you don’t mind! Way back on the 29th December, I hopped in the car and drove all the way to Dover, through the channel tunnel, across France and into Belgium. Phew, what a journey! I then spent a few nights in Bruges with Gareth and his family, to celebrate New Year. It was the first time I’ve…

Happy New Year 2017/18: goals and resolutions

I’m a week late in saying this, but… happy new year! Sorry for my tardiness (does anyone use that word anymore?), but I’ve spent the past week with a really nasty flu. Not fun. But I’m finally feeling myself again, so I’m back to it! I hope you guys had a good Christmas and new year break? I actually spent NYE in Bruges this year, which was pretty awesome. It was a weekend full of beer, chocolate and beautiful cobbled streets… bliss!…

Easy DIY Christmas decorations with wooden beads (video)

It’s almost that time of year… mince pies, festive films and a whole lotta Christmas crafting! Of all the Christmas crafts, I think tree decorations are probably where you can have the most fun. There’s no need to make them overly intricate or complicated; simple, easy designs often work the best! This year, I was inspired to make these very easy DIY Christmas decorations with wooden beads. I tend to go for a rustic wooden theme at Christmas, accented with bold pops…
