Three famous landmarks I’d love to visit | Bucket list

Famous landmarks bucket list, map, globe

The Husband & I spend many an hour daydreaming about all of the places we would love to visit when the boys have upped and left home, and we have a bit more money. It would be amazing to travel the world, and see in real life all of the places we’ve seen on television, in movies, and in pictures.

The furthest we’ve ever travelled is Europe (by plane and boat), so to fly long haul would be an adventure for a start! Although we spend these hours daydreaming, it would be so hard to choose where to go first. For this bucket list post, I’ve whittled it down to three.

Planning a children’s party in 8 easy steps

Pineapple wearing a party hat and sunglasses. Balloons. Children's party.

Regular readers of mine may know that I love planning a party; up until this year, Jacob has had one every year since his first birthday. The only reason neither of them had one this year was because we were going on holiday at the end of their birthday month, so we didn’t have the budget for it; that was their birthday treat really, a week long one!

If anyone would like to request my services in the future, I’m down for that 😉 If you are looking to plan your own party though, I have some top tips for you. Read more

I’m going to BlogOnX!

Even though I’ve been blogging for over seven years now, I haven’t yet attended a blog conference; so BlogOnX will be my very first one! It was a bit of a last minute thing, after my lovely friend Sarah asked me if I would like to go with her. (Her blog is very new so go and give it some love!). I’ve heard a lot of great things about the Blog On conferences over the years so I’m super excited (if not slightly nervous) to pop my conference cherry with it!

5 Tips On How To Incorporate Light Into Your Home

For those of us who take pride in the way their home looks, there are few things worse than a room that is too dark. In addition to detracting from the look of a room, a lack of light can have negative psychological effects on the viewer – a dark room isn’t conducive to a positive and cheery atmosphere.

Do you have a couple of rooms that don’t get a lot of natural light? Maybe you have some interior design plans for your home? Or perhaps you’ve just moved into your house and discovered that some spaces are lacking light? Then here are a few tips to introduce more light into your home. Read more

Our March favourites | Birthdays, books, and holidays

March favourites

March feels like it was months away now, although it was only last month. Time seems to be flying past lately, although I tend to say that a lot. I swear children are some sort of time-stealers. As well as energy thieves. But anyway… March is always a busy month for us as we have both boys birthdays. I was also at a book signing, and we were winding down for half term. We also managed to squeeze in the beginning of our annual holiday!
