Things I learned in 2017

This year has taught me a lot, like a ridiculous amount. It’s been a year of learning, love, loss and lessons. With the year coming to a close soon, despite it feeling as though it’s flown by, I thought I’d write down for you all some of the things I’ve learned this year.

My run up to Christmas must haves!

So I thought it may be quite nice to share with all of you (probably all five of you who read my ramblings 😉 ) my run up to Christmas must haves! For me there are always a good few essentials that I need to have to start getting me in the festive spirit…not that it takes much.

Fairy lights

Fairy lights are like my number one thing I have to have around the house! I feel like they add so much festivity to a home. They’re super cute and really not that expensive at all. I tend to buy all of my fairy lights from Lights4Fun as they offer really good quality lights and not at a bad price either. View Post

A note to my younger self

I sometimes find myself wishing I could tell my younger self about how life really works, and what’s real and true, and therefore get rid of some incorrect preconceptions and assumptions I had way back then. So what would I tell my younger self?
