Personalised Piggy Bank

Pink Piggy Bank

If you have been reading my blog for a while you may have noticed that I love personalised items, which is why when looking for a piggy bank for Aria I took to eBay in search of a personalised one.


On Turning 30

On Monday I turned the grand old age of thirty and it really wasn't that bad! A lot of people get quite down about reaching a certain age but I am more than happy. I haven't done everything that I wanted to do before turning thirty but I have achieved a lot. I have my lovely baby and husband, a Mortgage, a secure job, I'm debt free and most importantly of all, I'm happy.

I had a full weekend of celebrating with loved ones, read on to find out what I got up to and see what presents I received.

Aria has so many cute outfits I figure that it is about time that I show them off on here. Who doesn't want to see cute babies in cute clothes?

Day Out : Penderyn Whisky Tour

Penderyn Whisky Tour - Penderyn Whisky Barrels

If you're looking for a day out in Wales then why not take a tour of Penderyn Whisky Distillery? 

Spencer and I promised to take my dad for a tour as a Father's Day present, he loves Whisky so our gift was to take him on the tour and let him choose a bottle of whisky to take home, we thought it was a great gift for him and contained a little more thought than the usual bottle of whisky alone. 


Hello Fresh Box #1 - April 2015

Hello Fresh Meal Subscription box

Bounty bags are something that you receive throughout your pregnancy, one of mine included a £25 voucher towards a Hello Fresh box. I've heard rave reviews for Hello Fresh so couldn't wait to try it out myself.

If you haven't heard of Hello Fresh they are a meal subscription service. You choose from a selection of boxes, choose your delivery day and wait. They send you a box which contains recipe cards along with everything that you need to make each dish, most of the ingredients are ready measured out to make life that little bit easier.

I couldn't wait to get stuck in and start cooking, and of course, eating the delicious food!


Home : Simple Sofa Update with Cherry Blossom Cushion Covers

Cherry Blossom Scatter Black Cushion Covers

We wanted to update our tired looking sofa but couldn't afford a complete new sofa, so I settled on new cushion covers. Scatter back cushion covers were surprisingly difficult to get hold of, we tried Dunelm Mill, IKEA and even SCS where we originally bought our sofa. Places either didn't have the correct size, had horrible patterns or only sold the size with the cushion for a ridiculous price (around £60 per cushion in some places!). There may well be other more obvious places to look but I didn't know where so took to eBay, the place where you can buy absolutely anything.
