This time last year whilst still living in Wales we had a spare day with nothing to do and I really wanted to not waste the day and hang around at home. Off on the train we went up the Cambrian coast to visit Portmeirion; a specially built Italian inspired village nestled in beautiful woodland on the coast. It is so beautiful there. We chose a dry but slightly cloudy day but still had such a lovely time walking around. All the buildings are painted in such calming Mediterranean colours  with statutes and beautiful gardens. We had a beautiful lunch if… View Post

My teenage daughter (13) absolutely adores flamingos.  Without a doubt they are her favourite animal.  She loves to visit Chester Zoo to watch them ‘strut’ their stuff.  They are such beautiful graceful animals.  when we moved back to the Midlands earlier this year, the room she was having was in need of redecorating.  One thing she wanted was flamingos! She adored their coral colour and came across these nail varnishes and loved the grey colour too. The decision was made. Her room was to be coral and grey. Imagine her excitement when we came across this wallpaper! The wallpaper was… View Post

I love stationary. Pretty note books, fancy coloured pens and stickers and washi tape. When Unique Planners asked if I’d like to review one of their life planners I jumped at the chance. There are many designs to choose from as well as A4 or A5 sizes. I picked the A4 size and s clean looking design. Inside the planner there is a double page for each month to look at a glance. Then each week is on a double page spread. One side shows the 7 days and the other page is an overview for the week. At the… View Post

I’m a little late this month talking about the things I loved last month but life just took over. It was a strange month with ups and downs. Fun times out to hospital stays and all the emotions that come with that. Meals Out Early this month I went for a meal at Rub Smokehouse. Oh my, it was delicious!  I’m loving being back in Birmingham and all the fantastic places to eat that I now find on my doorstep. There really are some great places here in Bormingham and the West Midlands. I hoping to get some reviews up… View Post
