    Behind the Blogger: My Town and What it Means to Me ~ Part 2

    It’s that time again, the time where we can get nosy and find out more about our fellow bloggers! Following on from our two guest bloggers in last weeks post we have two more guest bloggers from Folkestone and Bristol ready to tell you all about their town. Grab that cuppa and settle down to find out more about Emily from Emily Aagaard and Polly from Polly’s Pad. Emily | Emily Aagaard  I grew up and live in a town called Folkestone. As with every town, there are pros and cons! But in terms of my own development, I think that growing up in this area definitely had an impact…

    Pumpkin Perfect

    The last time I managed to get time to carve pumpkins was 3 years ago so I was pushing the idea of actually getting some pumpkins and a carving kit with my husband this year. I have talked about where I got these two pumpkins from for £3 in my Halloween decorations post and I would like to mention now that I got the carving kit from Poundland for only 50p! So overall it was a cheap buy to have some messy fun. We had my husbands little sister over to get in on the fun and oh boy fun was definitely one word to describe it. If you’ve ever…

    Behind the Blogger: My Town and What it Means to Me ~ Part 1

    I recently wrote a post on the places I’ve lived throughout the years and it got me thinking about the experiences of others in the places they’ve lived. So, of course, I tweeted asking if any bloggers would like to work with me on a collaboration post and I was SO shocked by the response! I was expecting maybe one person but when I saw the amount of people responding it filled me with joy. I thought this was only going to be one post but I’ve decided to turn it into a mini series instead. I wanted to find out more about my fellow bloggers regarding where they’re located…

    Behind the Blogger: Relocation

    I spent my life growing up in Stafford in the West Midlands, UK. Throughout school and sixth form I was happy enough living in this town as I didn’t really know much different. I spent some Sundays travelling around Wales with my dad and holidays in Cornwall in the summer holidays. Then in my last year of sixth form we were told to apply for University because that was the next step in life. I spent hours looking at Universities not even knowing what I wanted to do but I managed to figure out what I wanted to study and narrow it down to three Universities: Chester, Worcester and Newport.…

    The October Blog Tag

    I recently came across Lisa’s blog, Oh Luna, for the first time and I couldn’t stop reading all her posts! I came across her post ‘The October Blog Tag‘ and after reading this I thought I would give the tag ago, who doesn’t love answering more questions so their readers can know them more?? So grab a cuppa and off we go! Name? Sophie What is your favourite colour? Orange currently – probably because it’s October! What did you do today? I walked into town with my husband playing some Pokemon Go, bought the Harry Potter box set and now I’m on the second DVD! Where are you currently? In…

    Halloween Decorating: Budget Edition

    We are over half way through October now and you know what that means? We’re closer to Halloween, which of course means it’s time to get up those decorations! Today I’m going to share with you all the decorations I managed to find all for under £10! I gave myself a limit of £10 because I knew if I didn’t I would go way over the top and have decorations I would never use again. Also this because my husband is not as into decorating for Halloween as myself (crazy right?) and kept making sure I didn’t buy too many tacky decorations. I took the trip to Poundland I had…

    The perfect rainy day

    We are now half way through October! It feels like only yesterday I started writing posts for the beginning of Blogtober and now we’re on the other half of the month, crazy! What has also been crazy so far this month is the weather, wouldn’t you agree? We have had some days where it has definitely felt like Autumn but then a few odd days that have felt as though we were thrown back into June, how strange. After the long summer we had I was more than prepared for the chilly days Autumn would bring but then the few days of sunshine threw me off for a while. I…

    Makeup Revolution: Autumn Essentials

    Recently I’ve been trying to get my head around how to use makeup and realised I was lacking in a few areas. I had no idea what was good to use for eyebrows, foundation or contouring (I’m still not 100% sure about the contouring business, but I’m experimenting). I mentioned in my Fall Tag post that the other day I saw my friend wearing this eye shadow colour that I fell in love with but it turned out it was from a highly priced palette. So I did some browsing around the internet and if you saw my recent post on Halloween makeup you’ll know I came across the actual website…

    Autumnal Decor

    I went a bit mad at the end of September trying to get everything organised and getting my home feeling cosy in preparation for Autumn. There were several things I bought from The Range and Etsy shops which I spoke about using some of these in my photo props post. Unfortunately there was still a bare space on my wall and I needed to fill this up and cover the emptiness (nesting I’m guessing?). I was just casually scrolling through Instagram and I came across this amazing page Mermaidmoonchildillustrations and fell in love with the illustrations. So of course I just had to check out the Depop page advertised on this…
