Why travelling long haul with a new-born was a great idea.

When we shared that we had already booked a long haul flight to travel with our 4.5-month-old baby before he was even born, I’m sure some people thought that we were extremely brave or plain stupid! Being completely honest I was slightly anxious about the whole thing, but having the reassurance that the flights and hotel were refundable should we decide to bail out on the whole adventure put those

The Black Friday and Cyber Weekend/Monday Edit!

Good Morning and welcome to Black Friday, the official Black Friday that is. If you’ve been browsing the internet this week, or have just been doing the odd bit of early Christmas shopping, then you’ll be aware that it is a discount jungle out there. Retailers have started their ‘cyber weekend’ offers earlier and earlier and whilst this is utter temptation, I’m looking at it on the plus side…time to

Sleep – the universal activity that all humans need to survive; an essential activity to rest and recoup the body and mind. With the average adult recommended to get between 7 to 8 hours of restful sleep per night, for a poor sleeper like me, this requires a lot of commitment in a carefully timed pre-bedtime routine! If this scenario sounds familiar to you, or you’re also a poor sleeper/insomniac,

Go on….Treat yourself!

Today’s post is not about a Day, birthdays, pay day or any other sort of “day”. It’s simply about treating yourself! We often feel that there needs to be a reason when it comes to doing something nice for yourself, or a secret currency exchange that occurs where you tell yourself if you do X then you can have X. Well today, I wanted to throw that notion out of

New Year, new you – are you falling for that cliché too?

And I’m back! Happy New Year to all and whoever may be reading this. It’s a New Year and a New Me! Haha…I can almost hear you nearly choke on your tea! Such a cliché right! Yes, it’s a new year, but not so dissimilar to the previous year (minus the fact that it’s 2017 not 2016) and well, as much as I would have like to have morphed into

Capture those memories just in time for Christmas with Photobox!

When was the last time you printed a picture? I guess I should answer this question myself as I’m asking you. Well, for me, it was probably about three years ago when I used an image from my wedding day for handmade personalised thank you cards.  Since then, nothing. The volumes of pictures I have taken on various holidays or events end up on a memory stick and on my
