    Seasonal Affective Disorder or Autumn Blues?

    Seasonal Affective Disorder? The weekend has been and gone, the rain has returned and it is freezing. I usually love days like these but I’m not feeling very Autumnal today in fact, I think I have the Autumn Blues (if that’s a thing, if not, it is now!). To be fair it seems like we skipped the stunning orange hues of October, the crunchy leaves were a soggy mushy mess, we experienced enough rain to last a lifetime and it just did not feel like Autumn – more like January/February time. I feel I was robbed of my October and the lovely warm cosy glow I get inside when Autumn…

    Pre Christmas Pamper & Juice Detox

    Pamper plans for Christmas – how silly does that sound? I don’t know about you but, I think Christmas is the perfect opportunity to glam up and treat yourself to a manicure. I realise that this might not seem a luxury to most, however for me this is a massive treat. I do paint my nails, not that they last more than a day with my hands constantly being in water, cleaning products and general wear/tear. But I can’t really justify £20+ every two weeks on getting my nails done as I would rather the money went on the children. So I only really visit the salon on special occasions such…

    Adult Advent Calendar Guide 2017

    Advent calendars have come a long way since the days of cheap chocolate, although I did like the ones with little pictures behind the cardboard door. As an adult I stopped buying myself an advent calendar years ago, but always feel a little bit left out when the children open theirs in the morning. I love the idea of going all out during the festive season and why shouldn’t us parents/adults have a treat to wake up to. I was so pleased to see a whole host of advent calendars on the market especially designed for adults ranging from beauty, perfumes, candles and luxury chocolates. There are some fab ones on offer…
