Seven Reasons To Put Guernsey On Your ‘To Go’ List

Following my post last Autumn all about our trip to Jersey and my posts on Instagram, I was surprised by the amount of messages I had from people saying that they hadn’t previously considered a trip to the Channel Islands. And I was then pleased by them saying that now it was firmly on their radar! I realised just what an underrated holiday destination it is! When we recently had the opportunity to visit Guernsey I was so excited to see what one of the other Channel Islands had to offer, and also to be able to share it with all of you too. We had the most fantastic time away and so here I am, ready to tell you all the reasons why you should be adding Guernsey to your ‘to go’ list. (more…)

Girly Gift Guide For Three Year Olds

We recently celebrated Darcie’s third birthday. The fact that I am even having to write that on here shows how long I’ve been neglecting this space for – however, if you follow me on Instagram you would be more than aware of that fact (sorry again blog for the recent neglect). It can be really hard to know what to buy for birthdays, especially these days when the options seem endless. With that in mind I’ve put together a list of products that Darcie is loving at the moment in the hopes that it can be useful for anyone currently in a present buying panic. This was never intended to be a ‘girly’ gift guide however when I rounded it all up a strong unicorn/fairy/pink theme became apparent. (I don’t even know if you’re allowed to say girly these days, but it just seemed like the best way to sum it up. All of these items could be for boys or girls). (more…)

A Day In Bournemouth

We are lucky enough to live within easy driving distance of some truly lovely parts of the country. Not only do we have the New Forest right on our doorstep but we are also close to some gorgeous seaside towns such as Bournemouth. The beaches around the Bournemouth area are so gorgeous that it’s easy to spend a whole day just soaking up the soft warm sand and beautiful views. However if you venture out of this sandy little comfort zone, Bournemouth actually has so many other things on offer too. Seafront cafes, bars, restaurants and lots of green spaces and beautiful gardens. It’s the perfect place for a weekend getaway and there are also some fabulous hotels in the area! (more…)

Six Weeks To A Healthier Lifestyle

If you follow me on Instagram you will have seen me talking at length about the six week nutritional plan that I took part in recently. I had a lot of questions over the six weeks and so I thought the best thing to do would be to collate all of my thoughts, feelings and frequently asked questions into this blog post. I hope this will be helpful for anyone looking to take part in the course. (more…)

Escape To Cornwall | The Esplanade Hotel Review

One of my big dilemmas for this year was where to go on holiday. Where did we want to go? How long could Dan take off from work? When would be the best time of year? We debated the pros and cons of various ideas for a while before deciding that what we would actually much prefer is to take lots of mini breaks throughout the year. That way we wouldn’t have the pressure of one big holiday and we could do more things and see more places. It was pretty much perfect timing when The Esplanade Hotel invited us to stay with them for a few nights and so we happily set of for Cornwall, excited for our weekend away. Hopefully the first of many this year! (more…)

And you still have plenty of time to order a present or to go hunting in the shops!
