Whooop! Pretty new notebooks for National Stationery Week #NatStatWeek

When you realise it’s National Stationery Week and your job now means you have to spend the Whole Week looking at new stationery… I decided to kick off the obsession with a stop by my favourite place for a quick happy burst of notebook shopping – Paperchase’s sale department. I know, go me. Oh, who can so no to that little sleepy owl face? And the bee, did you spot the bee?! The teal felt cover is created...

A love poem. To my beautiful United Kingdom. #iloveyoUK

Growing up, foreign holidays were for the posh family next door. Us? We went camping. In Norfolk. And Cornwall, the Peaks, the New Forest, Somerset, the Lakes… And honestly? It was great. I never felt I was missing out – holidays were always… well, a holiday! When we were first married, we had pretty much zero disposable income – but we had a tent, and we continued to explore year after year. Then just as we...

The lightest, thinnest, fastest (& prettiest) laptop – the ASUS ZenBook 3 Review

It’s a conversation I see a lot in my online social circles; “I’m looking for a new laptop. It needs to handle all my work, but also needs to be light to carry around. Any suggestions?”. For bloggers and writers and photographers, it’s a perennial issue (and yes, it’s no doubt the same for many others too) – we need our tech to do our jobs, but we also need to not be chained to a big desk...

Holidaying in Luxury in the Brecon Beacons | Tyn y Coed Review

I closed the door of the woodburner and settled back down into the huge expanse of sofa, listening vaguely to the muffled murmurings of the teens in the hot tub outside. It was a damp and windy Welsh night out there, but happily ensconced in hot bubbles they didn’t seem to mind, and I certainly wasn’t complaining as I curled up with my book, glass of wine at my elbow. As always, the first day of the holiday had been a very...
