Crafty Christmas – Handmade Gift Ideas

I love Christmas, crafting, anything homemade, and blogging so inevitably, I have written a blog post about homemade Crafty Christmas ideas. I love so many different crafts but I am most definitely a master of none of them. I still love having a go though, especially crafts I can attempt with my daughter, Molly. These are some of the festive themed […]

Cheap and Cheerful Christmas

​It’s no secret that Christmas is expensive.  Even so, we still conform to society’s tradition of spending vast amounts of money on gifts.

I am extremely guilty of overspending […]

Date Night

Don’t Worry, Be Happy

I have made a conscious decision to be more appreciative and grateful for everything I have. It’s easy to get down about life’s daily struggles, but why dwell on things that we cannot change? Don’t Worry, Be Happy will be my motto from now on. Yes there may be a few negatives along the way, but […]
