Once December 1st rolls round we’re faced with an endless stream of Christmas parties, meet ups, reunions and shindigs which mean you never really get a minute to yourself. Although I love spending time with friends and family over Christmas and partaking in all of the seasonal activities, sometimes it all leaves you feeling a bit burnt out and a night in is just what the doctor ordered. If you’re planning a cosy night on the sofa then here are my tips for making it more festive than Santa’s workshop.
When it comes to buying presents I pride myself on being pretty darn good. I love taking time to find people the perfect gift and get a right ol’ buzz when I watch them unwrap an absolute treat. That being said, when it comes to the men in my life, be it my boyfriend or my Dad, I always find myself struggling to know what will draw a genuine smile and what will leave them wondering how long they have to wait until it goes in the bin. Therefore I’ve enlisted the help of my
better half to tell you what the men in your life wouldn’t mind finding under the tree this year. If you like what you see Sam has his own blog over here, just don’t start reading his more than mine…
If I could have gotten away with it I would have probably written this post in June but I held off for a slightly more appropriate time. In case you hadn’t yet gathered, I LOVE Christmas. It seems about 5 minutes ago that we were eating all the mince pies and blasting Michael Buble every hour of the day but hey, I sure as hell ain’t complaining that it’s time to do that allll over again. If you’re spending any time in Liverpool this December then look no further than my guide to celebrating the run up to the big day in the ‘pool.
After devouring Then She Was Gone by Lisa Jewell in one weekend a few months ago, I knew the minute I picked up I Found You I was committing to 24 hours spent with my bum parked on the sofa and a steady stream of mince pies to keep me going. Not a bad way to spend a weekend at all.
The winter can be a pretty divisive time for a lot of people. Some look at it as a time where you get to enjoy the warmth and cosiness of staying at home while the weather gets colder and colder outside, and for others, it’s nothing but a frozen wasteland of misery and despair. Okay, that might be a bit dramatic, but a lot of people really aren’t that fond of winter at all. However, even if you’re not much of a cold weather person, there’s nothing quite like being able to enjoy the warmth and comfort of home while the weather outside gets worse and worse. With that in mind, here are few ways to embrace that classic winter comfort.
2017 may be full of every gadget to do every job imaginable but sometimes life still gets a bit too much. Sometimes no matter how optimal and on top of things I want to be, all I want to do when I leave the office every day is crawl into bed with Netflix. Luckily though being a bit of a lazy bones doesn’t have to mean I’m unproductive as well. With just a little bit of planning, laziness can sometimes turn out be my best character trait. Promise….
Everyone likes to take a seat, whether it’s because you’ve had a long and hard day at work, you’re a bit of a couch potato, or it’s the 5 minute break you have in between shifts at the computer desk that make your back ache.

Cosiness: it’s a word we all like to throw around whenever we sit down on a soft sofa cushion, but truly reworking your space this way takes a little effort.
