Dream Fights | Poetry Review

AD|Gifted. It's only over the last couple of years that I've started to get into poetry and feel like I could somewhat understand it. The Seeker offered me a copy of their poetry in exchange for a review - I couldn't say no! I love discovering more poets.

Stamp 'N Stick - Perfect for Back to School!

AD | Gifted. It's nearly time for the kids to return to school and you know what that means - time to name all the new school uniform! Always a fun job. Thankfully, Trodat kindly gifted me their Stamp 'N Stick kit, aptly called the FUNctional way to mark all belongings!

Shein Summer Haul

I've been feeling really low about my wardrobe lately, and didn't really have anything suitable for the crazy heatwave! After a chat with a colleague, I decided to raid Shein and see what I could find myself. I  have only had one item from Shein before and I absolutely love it so I was hoping to have some luck this time. Spoiler: I did! I have made three orders with Shein since! With my first order, I had £104 worth of items in my basket by the time I was done. Thankfully, Shein gives members vouchers so I got my basket down to £81 which was an absolute dream. Time to see what I ordered!

Camping in Devon | Photo Diary

I have officially been camping! As an adult anyway, I'm sure I went camping as a child but I don't remember it...either way, it's one more thing ticked off my 30 by 30 bucket list! 

Josh, Charlie and I went camping with Josh's mum, stepdad, 3 of Josh's siblings and their partners. We stayed in Totnes, Devon at ..... We left at 6:30am which was a bit of shock to mine and Charlie's system! How we both stayed awake during the 4 hour trip I do not know. It was a bit disappointing when we got there, as Josh's idea of camping is in the middle of the woods. That being said, it wasn't a terrible place to camp, and it was definitely family friendly.

6 Tips for a Cozy & Quaint Cottage Garden

Who doesn’t love the cottagecore aesthetic that’s been blowing up on the internet for the last couple of years? It’s happy, it’s cozy, and it’s a nod to simplicity and not falling for consumeristic behaviour. In general, it’s all about enjoying the flow and being simple. This is kind of how one could describe the cottage garden. They’re fun, they’re wild, and they’re not rigid whatsoever. Even if you’re not a big fan of the aesthetic or lifestyle, you can still enjoy the fun and beauty that the garden creates. Here are some tips for creating the perfect cottage garden.

August Budget

July was a bit of a spendy month! I ended up spending lots of money with The Body Shop, Studio and Shein. I also had some ASDA and Amazon gift cards to use, and sold some bits so I had some extra money to see me through last month!
