Old English Company: World Stationery Day Competition.

Image
Whenever I walk into a shop to browse I always find myself gazing into the wonderful collection of stationery available. I just can't help myself having a look and I think wow there are some great pieces in here. I mean stationery is just one of those things that some people can't resist. Who loves stationery? Wave your notebooks in the air (I'm kidding, they're far too precious for that).
So I recently came across a website called The Old English company who have so many awesome collections, stationery in particular. The stationery on their website includes notebooks, notepads, calendars, gift wrap, tape, planners and more.

The company don't only sell stationery however, they have a vast collection of many other things including home-ware, prints, cards and accessories which I think are pretty cool. The thing that I love the most about these  products is they come with adorable handwritten messages themed with humour, love and motivation.

London: An unintentional weekend away.

Image
As some of you may know prior to February I have been to London only twice in my life. One as a stressful day trip mostly spent shopping and rushing around and the other time for a 10 mile charity 'walk out of darkness' to raise money for suicide prevention. Both times it was nice to see somewhere different, but at the same time, incredibly exhausting.
Around the beginning (ish) of February, myself and my husband had some time off before starting our new jobs. We weren't really doing much at this time and so a dear friend of ours, Vicky, suggested we finally go and see her and her flat in London for the Friday and Saturday. My husband had never been to London prior to this time and he was bricking it because the place is known to be super popular and busy and crowds really aren't anyone's cup of tea. 
We arrived into London Euston around 5 and met our friend who took us on a bus trip to Elephant &Castle where she lives. This evening was spent mostly catching u…

Open House: An honest review

Over the time where I have had Netflix I have come across several films that looked like it would be something enjoyable to watch. Sometimes that was the case and the films were amazing. However, there have been several times where I’ve finished watching a film and thought ‘you can’t be serious?’ ‘Was that it?’ ‘What on earth just happened?’ And finally ‘I’ve just wasted 2 hours of my life for that which I will never get back.’
I love finding new things but sometimes it can leave me feeling worse than before! So I thought I would share this film with you that you really wouldn’t want to waste your time on. Please note there will be spoilers in this so if you do decide to watch this film (which you really shouldn't), don’t read any further. 
Open house:
Throughout this whole film you think 'oh yeah this film is getting good' and this thought goes through your head right from the start. The beginning involves your typical tragedy where the father goes to buy some milk and e…

Games I'm digging lately.

Image
It's been a while, I'm sure I always say this (or at least think this) every time I post a new post. Although I'll be honest I haven't really had much time spare these days since starting my new job. With all the travelling to and from work I'm out the house for just under 12 hours each day, then come the weekend I just want to fall asleep all day. I have been keeping myself busy (awake) by alternating between different games that I am into at the moment. I thought I'd share some of these games with you in this post, enjoy!

Destiny 2- crimson days. I haven’t really been playing destiny recently due to the fact I find the second one not so enticing. I absolutely adored first time playing destiny one but then a few months before destiny 2 was due to be released it got a bit repetitive and there was barely anything new to do. So anyway, I was really excited for destiny two, the cinematic trailer made it look really good. Besides the fact the main story is based ar…

17 things 2017 taught me

Image
We are now in the second month of the New Year and I realised I hadn't done a post on anything to do with New Years. Instead of goals etc, I thought I would start this year with what I have learnt from 2017. As they say, better late than never!
1) Cats are the best - For those of you who follow my Instagram and Twitter you may know I have two little fluff balls (Oryx and Nala) that are a pain sometimes but I love them to pieces. I have always wanted cats and when my husband suggested we got our little Oryx it meant the world to me. So towards the end of the year we couldn't resist getting another little fluff ball, who is now our little Nala. They both can be annoying little sods from time to time, especially at 3AM. In December we looked after Lola, my husbands' families jug (Jack Russell/ Pug), which really made me realise that in our current situation I definitely prefer cats!

2) Festivals are awesome - For Christmas 2016 my husband surprised me with tickets to Downloa…

Download Festival: Survival Guide

Image
Hey guys,
How y'all doing today? We are nearly out of winter and ready for the nicer and hopefully warmer months to come. It is a bit of a dull time of year, where for most of us there is not really much to look forward to for a while. However, you may have some memories from last summer to keep you going or plans for this summer that are getting closer by the day! One of the things that I am looking forward to this year is going to Download festival for the second time. See, last year was my first time at any festival and it was amazing, so this year should be even better!
I discovered many things whilst being at this Festival, including what I would need to survive the 5 nights and 6 days there. So I thought I would share some tips on what you would need to get you through a festival!


1) Water - this is the MOST important thing you must have while you are there. Especially if it is sunny and you are consuming alcohol. Make sure you take a bottle for travelling and queuing and th…

NETFLIX: Best shows on now.

Image
New year, new Netflix. I know I haven't wrote in a while but I thought that sharing some of the shows I have been watching would be a good way to start. After all, that's what I spend some (most) of my free time doing.
Earlier on this year Netflix made a wonderful announcement and that was the list of what new shows are going to be added and when. If you're one of those people that have a serious binge watching addiction then you were probable ecstatic when this list came out.

I'll admit I haven't heard of/seen half of these programmes but there were a few I was particularly interested in, that being Dirk Gently's Holistic Detective Agency and Friends.
I first saw the first season of Dirk Gently last year and it was enticing to say the least. So when I found out that the new season was going to be arriving on Netflix I did the obvious thing and re-watched the first season. The second season was not a disappointment and I tried to binge it the best I could arou…
