Where do you see yourself in 5 years time?

Five years ago I was 21 and living at home with my mum and sister. I was half way through a University course that I really didn’t enjoy with no idea what the next 5 years had in store for me. In those five years I got engaged, married and we bought our own home. I don’t think you realise how long ago five years really was. Remember the Harlom Shake?… Yep 2013. So in 5 years time it will […]

Primark Disney Haul!

Last week we decided to plan a sort-of last minute trip to Disneyland Paris. The week before I’d seen a collection of Disney bits in Primark that I told myself ‘I had no need for.’  Well guess what? Now I have a need for them! I had a little birthday money left over so I treated myself. Here’s my Primark Disney Haul!     Mickey Mouse backpack – £12 There was a sparkley Disney backpack floating around Instagram a few months back, […]

What to watch on Netflix this weekend!

A few days ago it was reported that Netflix was looking to hire binge watchers; someone to watch, rate and categorise their Netflix original catalogue. We might not all be that lucky, but whether you’re using Netflix as a comfort blanket or you’re just looking for a way to waste away your life, there is such a large choice on Netflix at the moment. So much so that sometimes you just don’t know where to begin. I often get stuck continuously […]

Easter Shortbread Recipe Ft. Smarties Mini Eggs!

Easter Egg Shortbread Recipe - Easter Shortbread

I woke up this morning with absolutely no intention of doing anything but watching television and maybe some housework. Scrolling through twitter I saw everyone posting their scrumptious Easter Recipes and felt like I was missing out a little. I ran to the kitchen and stared at my empty cupboards. What did I have to work with? Half a bag of caster sugar, left-over flour and butter freshly bought for my hot cross buns. Oh… and those Smartie Easter Eggs […]

April Fool’s Day Ideas!

It’s the morning of April Fool’s day. You wake up and run to your computer ready to find the best April Fool’s jokes for this year. Okay.. maybe not, but I know that I love searching for the most creative and funny ideas. In the past we’ve had Pac-Man Google maps and  being able to order the whole of Youtube via DVD, and although some companies do miss the boat a little, I can’t wait to see what they come […]

Can I use photographs from the internet? Tips to ensure your blog isn’t breaking the law

I’m still relatively new to blogging, but unfortunately I’m not new to photograph theft. I was a professional photographer for about 4 years and often experienced people stealing my photographs. This would range from (some very large, very popular) websites and newspapers to bloggers. Now I’m part of this blogging world, I’m seeing it happening to others, with people crediting photographs from the internet to ‘Pinterest’ on the daily.   We should be supporting each other, not stealing each other’s content.

26 Things To Do Before 27

Last week I celebrated my 26th birthday and although I still don’t feel very 26, I do feel that the years are getting shorter and shorter (I think it’s a secret catch of getting older that no one tells you.) So before I reach the grand age of 27 I’ve got a few things I want to achieve, and as usual there are a few fun and a few serious. Here’s my list of 26 things to do before 27.   […]

Mother’s Day Gift Guide

The stores are swarming with cards, gifts and flowers again, but this time it’s for Mother’s Day. Luckily for me, my family have started badly hinting at what they want, which consists of putting an object right in my face and saying “I really like this” but some of you might not be so lucky, so I’ve put together a little Mother’s Day Gift Guide!   A post shared by Life, TTC & Marriage 💕 (@justthebeginningx) on Feb 24, 2018 […]

My Birthday!

So on Wednesday I turned the great old age of… 26. I’m not 100% sure of how I feel about this age, so I’ll just slowly settle into it. I’m not exactly where I wanted to be, but do you know what? I’m not doing too bad. It became apparent that everyone had the hint that I love pineapples. I unwrapped a pineapple lamp, card, notebook and cup! In addition to the cutest Cath Kidston guinea pig lunch bag, an elephant […]
