While many people buy from online selling sites, there is still a stigma attached to buying “second hand”. I can’t help but wonder why this stigma exists? There are so many barely worn or even new items in the second-hand market.
As the weather gets colder and there’s a chill in the air every time you venture outside, it’s that time of year where everyone starts to reflect on the past year and look ahead to the future. It’s the time of year when we spend extra time with our family, friends and loved ones, enjoying one another’s company and taking some time out to relax.
A pregnancy grumble. I have tried hard not to grumble. Well, not too much anyway. However, it is hard when you feel exhausted. It’s hard when you back and hips hurt with every step, but you just can’t stop. You have to keep plodding along. The school run is something I try to do with a smile.

Bonfire night is upon us, and I know my children love watching fireworks displays! However, I have to be honest by the time we have paid entry fees, I am reluctant to spend on treats while we are there. If you have a bigger family, the cost of going to events really adds up.

Together with Angelic Diamonds, retailers of bespoke wedding rings, we’re looking at the rise of same-sex marriages and how the affect on the Jewellery Industry. Continue reading →
Sometimes, the simplest days are the best. We packed up the car with buckets and spades. A picnic blanket and a couple of flasks of soup and headed to our favourite beach. We hadn’t been to that beach for longer than any of us could remember.
I can’t tell you how delighted I felt when a parcel arrived from Hunkemöller, direct from the Netherlands. Inside the parcel was a beautiful pair of pyjamas which I had chosen for this review. Every Winter I love to treat myself to new pyjamas, they’re my little bit of luxury as nights draw in.
