Girlies In Grey

Grey has been one of my favourite colours to wear for a good couple of years now, I feel comfortable wearing grey. It’s like black to most, it’s my go to. I never really thought about putting the girls in grey. I usually much prefer them in bold bright colours or pretty pastels. That was until I was having a little shop in Next last week and I noticed a lot of grey in the kids section. I spotted these gorgeous pieces as I spent way to much time trolling through the rails. I have love Next for children’s clothes since…

A Money Saving Diary

They set me a challenge to make a diary of my spending over a period of time, look back at it to see where I am over spending and where I can save money.

When your abroad and all you need to do it dip in and our of a pool it is perfect, all the hotels have air con and you can actually…

What does home mean to you?

What does home mean to you? That is the exact question the team at Wayfair have been asking. They recently took to the streets and discovered the heart warming insights into how people feel about their homes and how they are so much more to us than just a pile of bricks. They also found that  over 71% of us named our sofa’s as the most important item of furniture in their home. It got me thinking; what does home mean to me? To me home is my safe place. It’s where I can unwind; I put on my comfy clothes as soon…
