A Zero Waste Journey

Something that I’m keen to do this year is to be more environmentally friendly. I’ve been following a number of zero waste movements online and it fascinates me. Before I go any further, I’ll just briefly explain what zero waste means. What is Zero Waste? Zero Waste is a philosophy that encourages the redesign of resource life cycles so that all products are reused. The goal is for no trash to be sent to landfills, incinerators, or the ocean. The process recommended is one similar to the way that resources are reused in nature. (Source) The idea is that we need to reduce… [Read More]

Book Review: The Only Way is Up by Carole Matthews

As a huge Carole Matthews fan I thought I would share a review of my second favourite book of hers! My first favourite is Million Love Songs. You can read my review here. My second favourite Carole Matthews book is called The Only Way is Up. Here’s what the back of the book says: Lily and Laurence had it all: the money, the car, a beautiful home in the Buckinghamshire countryside. Then Laurence loses his job and everything disappears. With nowhere to turn, Lily and Laurence are forced to take their two young children and move to a flea-ridden council… [Read More]

Online Essay Writing Service as The Best Way For Academic Success

Writing essays is no easy feat. It’s something that the majority of students dread doing and in some ways that’s understandable. The pressure put on students today to perform well and produce high, quality, accurate essays is phenomenal. When you factor in the lack of time that students commonly talk of, it’s no wonder that so many students feel anxious and stressed at the thought of having to write their essays. There are many different things that students in particular will need to consider when writing an essay. First is the topic, although this is usually a given based on… [Read More]

Family Camping Holidays #AD

This year I’m making a big effort to get back to nature, to be more environmentally friendly and to get back to basics. As mentioned in my previous post, 2019: The Year of Family Camping Holidays, I’m planning on having lots of little adventures throughout the year with my family. We normally go abroad on holiday once a year. Our chosen destination is usually Spain or Disneyland! These types of holidays are wonderful and so much fun. We’ve created so many memories on these types of holidays, but the problem is they’re so expensive. I also wonder if my husband… [Read More]

Valentines Gifts for Men #AD

February 14th is Valentine’s day. Unless you’ve been living under a rock or on another planet, I’m assuming that you already knew that. However, do you know the history behind Valentine’s day? It’s not something that many people think about really, but it’s actually quite fascinating. Valentine’s day originated as a Western Christian Feast Day that would honour one or two early saints who were named Valentinus. According to Wikipedia, Valentine’s Day is recognised as a significant cultural, religious, and commercial celebration of romance and romantic love in many regions around the world. Here in Wales, we also have our… [Read More]

London Marathon Training Update

I wasn’t expecting to write another update post so soon after my last one at the end of January, but needs must! You can read my last update post here. My last two runs of January had to be completed on the treadmill because it was just too icy outside to risk slipping and getting injured. By the time my long run came around on the 2nd February there was still a bit of snow and ice on the ground, but the thought of running 7 miles on a treadmill bored me! I don’t mind running 5k on a treadmill,… [Read More]

Le Petit Bola Pregnancy Necklaces

Finding a unique gift for a pregnant friend or family member can be a challenge. Should you buy a gift for the baby or perhaps something for the expectant mum? I usually opt for a gift for mum because the majority of people tend to buy gifts for the baby. Le Petit Bola is a French Jewellery brand that started two years ago in 2016. They imagine and create Harmony Ball necklaces specifically for pregnant women. Starting on the living room table of their apartment in Valence, France, Emilie and Florian discovered the harmony ball. This unique Indonesian jewel is… [Read More]
