Meet Rocky!

This is just a little post to introduce you to the newest member of our family! Meet little Rocky the hamster. You may have seen on my Instagram that we had to say goodbye to my guinea pig Reese last week. He was extremely poorly and although I will forever miss my little best friend it was the best decision to be made for him. After telling myself over and over again that I didn’t want another pet, the flat […]

Christmas In July

There’s currently a heat wave in England and I’m sat inside in shorts designing Christmas cards. It’s definitely Christmas in July. No, I haven’t just hopped in a Tardis skipping the rest of the year, I’m getting my little shop ready for the festive season. Christmas fair applications are opening soon and I have my fingers tightly crossed. I love the idea of having my own stall, somewhere to show off all the hard work I’ve been cramming in. I’m […]

Hotel Cheyenne Review – Disneyland Paris

hotel cheyenne review disneyland paris

We hadn’t even decided we were visiting Disneyland when I came across Hotel Cheyenne. It was perfect, we absolutely love Toy Story (You’ve got a friend in me was our first dance at our wedding) and they were advertising a really good deal if we visited between certain dates. The deal gave us 25% off and free half board. (The offer is currently still on for this summer, so it’s definitely worth checking it out!) Our plans changed a little as […]

Must have Apps for Bloggers

I started my blog last June (It’s nearly been a year can you believe it?) and ever since I’ve been glued to my phone. Whether it’s during my lunch time or when I slump on my sofa after a long day at work I’m always switching between apps. This also means I’m constantly on the search for apps to help with my blog and website and if you’re anything like me you’ve probably spent way too long scrolling through the […]

Favourite Disney Quotes

We’re heading off to Disneyland Paris next month so lately we (maybe more I) have been trying to get into the Disney Spirit. From watching my favourite Disney films and singing all of the songs at the top of my lungs, I’m going to spend the next few weeks cramming in as much Disney magic as humanly possible. Favourite Disney Quotes. No matter which Disney film you pick, you’ll always find some words of wisdom. Or maybe a small line […]
