The Start of a New Garden From the Beginning

When we moved into our new house at the end of June, I had great plans on designing the new garden. I love gardens, the outdoor space, the tranquility, the plants, nature. I adore it all. I knew when we bought off plan that the house had a pretty rectangular shaped garden, much better than our hilly garden in the old house! So I know this is a garden I can get the most out of. My husband said I had such a huge smile on my face when I saw actually how big it was. The size is roughly 12 x 18 metres. I have yet to get out and measure it properly!

It was a garden of mud, but I loved it! I looked beyond that and could see the potential, here is the start of the new garden right from the beginning.

Camping Out In Cornwall & Equipment You May Need

When I was a kid I loved camping, it all started off as soon as I could walk I loved to make dens. We had a row of trees in my parents garden that used to make one end of the camp, then we would use the windbreak (from when we went to the beach) for the other side. The top used to be an old bedsheet we would tie to the trees. Many an hour was spent in our camp! I was a proper outdoorsy child, you could always find me playing with stones and in the mud!

Getting The Most Benefits From Your Email Signature

Not only does mobile technology have a massive effect on the way that we interact with each other, but also so is social media affecting how we exchange ideas and communicate with each other. As such, it is essential that both of these technologies embrace together and allow us to keep up with our interactions while we are on the go. With so much business taking place on mobile devices, it is entirely natural to embrace your social media and have links to these in your email signature.

Are You Planning On Buying a New Car?

Are you planning on buying a new car? Now is the time to think about it because the new registrations are coming out in a few weeks. Who doesn’t like to drive around with a new reg? They do seem to have great deals around at that time as well.

At the end of June, funnily enough just a few days before we moved house my beloved Citroen C3 had decided to give up the ghost. I had her for years and years, in fact she was my 2nd only ever car. You see I don’t like to swop and change cars too often, I’m set in my ways! She begun to lose power, getting up a hill was very painful. Some of her injectors and turbo was gone. I knew because of her age a new car was on the cards later on this year, it’s what we budgeted for. I just didn’t think it was going to be a couple of days before we moved house! My stress levels were at an all time high!

Beauty Review: Sensse Silicone Facial Cleansing Brush

A few weeks back I reviewed the Sensse Hot and Cool Facial Bar, and absolutely loved it. This past week I have been trying out the Sensse silicone facial cleansing brush. After quite a few sleepless nights with baby girl teething and her nightmares my skin has suffered. It feels dull and lifeless, tired and spotty.
