Alfresco Dining: Serving Platters of Joy

Well hello you. It’s been a hot minute hasn’t it. So much has happened since we last spoke. I’ve gained a baby. I’ve lost a dog. I’ve gained a few more wrinkles. I’ve lost a lot of hair (thanks pregnancy). It’s been a year since my last blog post. A whole year since my lastContinue reading “Alfresco Dining: Serving Platters of Joy”

Beard Appreciation: Gift Guide

Well what a week. WHAT A WEEK. On Wednesday we celebrated husband’s birthday. Which coincided with completion on our investment purchase!! We are officially property investors. BOOM.

I just want it (lockdown) to end. Which brings me to admit, I don’t really have anything to report this week. Its been a prettyContinue reading “Gifts for the Homebody”

Leopard Print: Gift List

I can’t quite believe that it marks almost 1 year since Covid-19 came along & turned our world upside down. Literally.

Gift Guide: The Adventurer

Even on a good year January is always a difficult month. She is the whore of the calendar (sorry to those with birthdays in Jan. Sorry Kirstie). Bank accounts are struggling, livers are strained thanks to Christmas, thanks to an obscene amount of Gavi.

Dear Diary: Stationery Gift List

This week has been a busy one. As the whole of the UK breathed a heavy collective sigh at the return to work/normality after the Christmas and NY break, I’m sure I wasn’t the only thinking ‘what now?!’. I made the stupid decision to go caffeine-free, sugar-free and alcohol-free for January, having spent most ofContinue reading “Dear Diary: Stationery Gift List”
