Visiting Santa at Friezeland Farm in Bosworth

Friezeland Farm in Bosworth, is a pick your own Christmas tree farm. Just over a week ago we decided to head there to get our Christmas tree and also pay a visit to Santa. We originally were planning to spend the day at Center Parcs as we had a one-day visitor pass from a friend who works there. However, the week before our visit Center Parcs had put a hold on guest passes during December, so we weren’t able to go. Unfortunately we’d already told the kids that we were going to Center Parcs for the day, so they were…

December 2017 (better late than never!)

Back in February I set myself a goal to blog at least once a week, since then I haven’t blogged once. I suppose I kinda kept thinking “what’s the point?!”. Recently I’ve been keen to get back to blogging and ensuring that I’m capturing our moments. My motivation for blogging seems to change on a weekly basis. One minute it’s about sharing my tips and reviews, the next it’s to get as many subscribers as possible in the bid to become a pro blogger. However, having some time away has allowed me to really reflect on the reason why I…

A visit to see Santa in Lapland {…

A few weeks ago we visited Lapland. We felt the kids are a perfect age to really experience the magic. We booked the Enchanting Day Trip to Lapland with Canterbury Travel. We’d spent a bit of time researching and the reviews from those who had done Lapland with Canterbury Travel were really good. We also really like the fact that you were transferred to the activity area by sleigh rather than coach. We didn’t tell the kids in advance as we wanted to them to have a good nights sleep the night before and we’re more worried that if they were…

Festive party wear with Simply Be {Review}

When Simply Be recently contacted me to review their festive party wear, I was quite intrigued. Simply Be is a brand that I’ve heard of, but I’ve never purchased anything from their range before. I always assumed they only did clothes for the curvier lady. However, many of their clothes actually start from a size 10. I love a bit of sparkle at Christmas, so I selected the Embellished Shoulder Top  which I absolutely love. It’s fantastic value at £25.00. It’s very versatile and looks great with jeans or leggings for a slightly more informal look, or as I have done below,…

Capturing our moments {December and January}

It feels like ages since I’ve written one of these posts, in fact it’s been far too long since my last post (must try harder)! We’ve had a pretty busy couple of months. As always, December was manic. January was thankfully less busy. To save lots of waffle in these posts, I’ve decided to make them mainly photo based, with just a little overview. So, here’s what we’ve been up to. December Christmas parties We both go to Simon’s, which is normally a great ‘do’, this year was as good as ever. Mine was also pretty good and was a…

Party Dresses for the Festive Season

Christmas is slowly creeping up on us. This year I’m trying to be particularly organised as we are going on holiday at the end of November. As well as trying to get my Christmas shopping done as early as possible, I’ve also been having a browse around for party dresses. During December we have a few Christmas parties to attend and they’re often quite glam dos – I love an excuse to get glammed up! I have recently started buying more of my clothes online as it is just so hard to find the time to have a good browse round the…

Finding the perfect gift

It’s October already? That must mean it’s practically Christmas, and once the shops have emptied the last of their pumpkins, broomsticks and fake spiders, it’s time to think about all that present buying you need to do. It doesn’t matter how many people you have to buy for, this always seems like a stressful task as you try to improve on last years present. For all those ladies out there who love to be organised, this is also the perfect time to pick up bargains for birthdays in future. But how do you decide on what to get people? How…
