No matter how much you love your job I can bet your evenings and weekends (or whenever it is that you aren’t working your ass off) are still your favourite time of the week. For me, my evenings are a precious jewel in my day. It’s the time when I get to see my flatmate and other half, to binge-watch friends until I fall asleep to the tones of “WE WERE ON A BREAK” and when I can commit some serious hours to this lil ol’ blog of mine. Despite often feeling like I’ve got a never ending to-do list full of life admin to make my way through, there are a few things that I like to do in an evening to get some of that all important zen. No matter what your plans are, finding the time for at least one of these each evening should stop you from combusting with stress at any given moment *not official medical advice.
For me, my home is one of the most important elements of my life. I love opening the front door to an environment that makes me feel calm and is decorated just how I like it. The thing is, this isn’t always possible. I don’t own my own home and went from living with my parents to uni accommodation to now renting out my apartment. Sometimes when you’re a renter it can feel like you can’t put your own stamp on the place however there are some things you can do to make it feel more like home. If you’re a bit stuck on how to add some personality to your living space look no further…
If you’re anything like me the camera roll on your phone will be chocka block with holiday snaps, night out selfies and instagramable brunches. I’m such a photo hoarder that I regularly get the dreaded notification to tell me my storage is nearly full and so begins the heart wrenching task of deciding which photos to say goodbye to.
Mother’s Day lands on Sunday 11th March this year which means you’ve got less than a week to show the number one girl in your life just how much you love her. No matter how much your Mum tells you she doesn’t want a fuss she’ll be sure to get slightly misty eyed when you ensure the whole day revolves around her. When it comes to Mum’s and their babies 9 times out of 10 simply spending time together is all she wants so by picking one of these options you’ll have her gift boxed off and a date in the diary just for you two.

Love it or hate it Valentine’s Day is just around the corner and suddenly everything is pink and heart shaped. Whether you’re buying for your other half, your best mate, or you just fancy treating yourself, these gifts are the perfect way of spreading the love.
Last year I saw every man and their dog raving about The Couple Next Door. It was dubbed the ‘thriller of the year’ and with good reason. This was the first book I read as part of my ‘read at least one book a month’ new year’s resolution and boy oh boy have I started with a good’un.
