7 years of loving you | Blog

To my wonderful Husband,

I don’t even know how to start this post. As I sit here looking at the letters on the keys in front of me it seems almost impossible to get the words out into something that is even a little cohesive. 7 years of marriage but many more of loving you…I don’t even know where to start.

When I think about our life together, I feel like it started when we were 15. We were young, innocent and full of hopes and dreams. I remember the coach trip to Disneyland Paris where we sat and talked about everything and anything. I felt like I could tell you anything and you would never judge me. You made me feel safe, loved and invincible. Fast forward 15 years and you still make me feel like that every single day. You are my biggest cheerleader and supporter and I always know that with you I have a safe place, a confident and a best friend. You make me feel like I can do anything and I know that you’ll always be there to catch me if it doesn’t go right.

Craft ideas with Rainbow Chalk | Collaboration

Note: This is a collaborative post. 

It feels like I've blinked and summer is over. I'm already missing the hot weather light evenings and summer days spent in the garden. One thing we did a lot of this summer was crafting. Pickle loves nothing more that to get busy with paints, pens and glue. It really has a creative mind and I love being able to enjoy crafting with him. I also love that it takes him away from the TV and the ipad and gives him a chance to let his imagination run free. Summer is the perfect time for crafting, in my opinion, because you can get in the garden and not have to worry about the mess being in the house. But, just because summer has ended doesn't mean that the crafting fun has to as well.

Rainbow Chalk recently shared their 6 top creative crafting activities for summer and I couldn't help but think about how great they would be to do at any time of year! All of the craft activities are easy to do as they don't need any special tools and they can be done in under 30 minutes so I thought I'd share my favorites with you. 


Is social media changing customer service?  |  Collaboration 

Note: This is a collaborative post. 

Social media has become an integral part of our daily lives. Traditionally social media was a place to catch up with friends and share your life. Now people use it to find out what’s happening around the world, watch celebrities and get in touch with companies. Thanks to Twitter, Facebook and Instagram people now have a platform where they can speak and comment directly to companies and brands which is great in a way but I also think it can be quite detrimental. It’s a way that people can share good comments, praise and questions but it is also used to complain and to single people out from certain companies which I feel can be unfair. What shocks me the most though is that some people have social media accounts (mainly twitter) that is used solely for complaining to companies!!


Shopping smart this Christmas | Collaboration

In recent year Christmas seems to have become all about the money. Having the best Christmas decorations in the street, mountains if presents sacked under the tree, having loads of food and drink piled into the fridge, throwing big Christmas parties and sending Christmas cards to every Tom, Dick and Harry you've ever met. It all costs money and it's not really what Christmas is about. Christmas should be about spending time with your loved ones, giving meaningful gifts and spreading a bit of Christmas cheer wherever you go. It doesn't have to cost a silly amount of money and it certainly doesn't have to get you into debt that you'll be paying off until next Christmas.
