Before I became I blogger I was always fascinated in stationery. Now that obsession has got bigger! Yes I’m calling it an obsession because I can’t go into any shops without checking out the stationery section. Personalised stationery is even more fun!
When we got the chance to get some items from Ryman and have them personalised, I thought it would be ideal for my blogging corner. Ryman offers personalised gifts and stationery items for the whole family. They are ideal for gifts, anniversaries, a new job, birthdays and Christmases. I think a personalised item is a very thoughtful gift. Ryman’s personalised range include pens, notebooks, mugs, diaries, prints, frames and gift wrap.

Set Your Goals
One great way to motivate yourself is to actually sit down and plan what you want to achieve. You won’t be able to know if you have managed to achieve your goals unless you set them in the first place. Make sure not to set too many goals as you might struggle to get yourself motivated when you are overwhelmed by everything you need to get done. Set a clear goal and you’ll get motivated soon enough.

It’s half term! Why not have some fun with Sky Ocean Rescue – Dive In & Do It?
Everyday we use single use plastic items such as plastic bottles, straws, coffee stirrers, plastic bags and food containers. These are items that are only used once then thrown away. These pose a threat to the sea and ocean life. It’s not only an issue that affects adults but kids too. Living in Cornwall with many beaches around, I see plastic bottles and tops many a time washed up on the beaches.
This is why Sky has launched a 12-episode series, Sky Ocean Rescue – Dive In & Do It, which introduces kids to the issues surrounding plastics and discusses the problems they pose for our oceans and sea life.
Each episode suggests tips and life hacks for kids to dive in and reduce their use of single use plastics in a fun, interactive way. Ideal for activities this half term to keep them busy and beyond.
Ways to reduce single use plastics can include things like using a reusable bag instead of plastic bags. Use a reusable water bottle and paper straws. Ideas like these will help reduce the need of single use plastics and our reliance on them.
Here we are at baby dottie’s 1 month update. It’s hard to believe she’s been with us over a month now, yes I’m a little late with this update! It feels like she’s always been with us.
Baby dottie only lost 5% of her birth weight in those first few days. Unlike baby girl who lost over 10%. I put this down to myself being more experienced with breastfeeding this time around plus my milk came in quicker. We never got her red book until she was nearly 2 weeks old, bloody health visitors!
When the health visitor came around to do her checks she was such a busy body. Baby girl got on her nerves a bit as she wouldn’t stay quiet while she did baby dottie’s hearing test! What do you expect from a 2 year old? View Post

As we approach Summer, it’s time to look at the top hair trends for Summer 2018. Bold experimental looks and colours are all in. With throwback looks of the 70’s and 90’s. Middle partings and oversized braids are going to be huge this year.
Sleek and structured updos are big on the catwalk. They show off the face, team it with a stunning dress and you are sorted for a night out.
Short bob styles with the ends curled in are big news for the easy to maintain look. In fact if you have a problem with a receding hairline and not feeling the most confident you can opt for lace front wigs which can make you feel amazing about your hair. You wouldn’t know it but the woman in the photo below is wearing one.
