A Slice of Christmas with bakerdays*

The one thing that I really wish I was good at is baking. I’m not absolutely awful, I can make something edible but I’d love to be able to make incredible cakes that everyone falls in love with. I actually used to watch a YouTuber called Rosanna Pansino for years who used to do a series called Nerdy Nummies. Her baking was always video game themed and she always looked so perfectly put together – I just end up sweaty, red in the face and covered in flour. I’ve always thought baking would be an especially useful skill around peoples’…

A Festive Photography Masterclass ft Viking Direct

Picture this; a cocktail bar, canapes, Christmas decorations galore and a room full of bloggers with cameras let loose on props, lights and other photography tools. That’s a brief insight into how last Wednesday night was. Back in July, the lovely Jennie from Search Laboratory invited me to a giffgaff event and she very kindly invited me back this month for a Christmas themed photography masterclass sponsored by Viking Direct. This invite came at the absolute perfect time as I was feeling a little bit in a rut with my blog photography. I felt like I just kept recycling the…

Gym Bag Essentials with Ben & Anna*

Without pretending I’m totally enthusiastic about fitness and having a healthy lifestyle regime, I have actually started going to the gym before work. I know, I shock even myself. Joking aside, it has genuinely really helped me to feel a bit better about myself. Now at least if I eat that big pizza on a Friday night I can feel a little less guilty about it. Aside from packing the obvious change of clothes and tissues to wipe away my tears about being up early to exercise, these are some of my absolute musts that I always keep in my…

Useful Mailing Lists for the Modern Millennial

I think anyone with an email account can understand the frustration of mailing lists, particularly when you know that you definitely didn’t opt into the majority of them. With all of the GDPR laws that have now been introduced, I was holding out hope that I’d stop receiving so many unwanted emails but I swear I’m only getting more. I recently had a massive clear out of my inbox, unsubscribing to the vast majority of unwanted automated emails and it took a lot more time than I even thought it would. Although there are plenty of mailing lists that I…

Giffgaff Gameplan Event: I Got Married & Bought Two Houses

Some might call this title “clickbait” as I’m not nearly responsible enough to be owning my own house yet, let alone two. However, there is actually a slight truth to the title that will be explained in this post. I recently attended an event held by giffgaff gameplan that I was honestly over the moon to even be invited to. This is my second ever blogging event, the first being Bloggers Festival back in December. I have to admit that on my way there I was really unsure of what to expect; I knew that there was going to be…

CaseApp: Design Your Dream Phone Case*

Something that I absolutely love is treating myself to a new phone case. It might sound really weird but for me, I get the same feeling using a new phone case as when you buy a brand new notebook and write in it for the first time – can anyone else relate to that? However, I’d been using the same phone case for months and it was starting to look a little bit tired. CaseApp unknowingly contacted me at exactly the right time to offer me two free phone cases which I was over the moon about. I’ve had my…

April Favourites: What I’ve Been Loving

I think I say this every month and I sound like such an old woman every time, but I really can’t believe April is over already. It feels like it was about a week long at the most. I’ve really been slacking with my blog lately, I need to give myself a kick up the backside and get back to regularly posting content. I usually tell myself I’m allowed to sit and be a sloth on a Monday night because, well, it’s Monday so I’m allowed. This time, I decided to take some blog photos, write two posts and schedule…
