Get Personal For Christmas | Tesco Photo*


I have certainly discovered the more personal side to Christmas as I've got older and it is more about family than getting a huge pile of presents. Presents are a lovely part of Christmas and I would never stop giving presents as I love it. Especially since having Lily, personalising presents is my favourite thing to do. I love to be creative and give something different than the normal perfume, chocolate and gift sets. I feel that it just gives that something extra and shows you have really put some thought into your gift.

Ballxrs | Adult Ball Pit Bar | Coventry


I don't really drink that much so if I go to bar's or nightclubs they need to have an edge, something to draw me in. I don't find dancing and drinking and having my shoes stuck to the floor fun anymore while people constantly bump into you. So places like Ballxrs which is new to Coventry is the perfect destination for someone like me. 

Ballxrs is an adult ball pit bar, which just brings back amazing memories of me when I was younger in soft play and the ball pit was where it was at. I was expecting a small ball pit where people could sit and chill while having a drink but it was SO much better. The ball pit was huge and it was literally a sea of balls, you could dive in, jump backwards and just hide under all the balls and scare your friends. It was amazing, such a fun night.

The Cosy Club Christmas | Coventry


Christmas is only around the corner as we are into November and as cheesy as it is, it's the best time of year! There is nothing about Christmas that I don't like and one of everyones favourite things is Christmas food. The sprouts, the roast potatoes, the scrumptious gravy and everything else! I was over the moon when I was invited to Coventry's Cosy Club to try their Christmas menu. I took my wonderful friend Emma with me, but a lot of my fellow Coventry Bloggers were there as well.

FarGo Village | Halloween Market


Halloween was yesterday and I spent my halloween as I normally due, snuggled up watching The Simpsons Treehouse of Horrors. I also spent the weekend before Halloween at FarGo village for their Halloween market. There was so many independent stalls for handmade or unique things for sale. I really feel that supporting smaller brands and the one man show shops is really important for our economy so going to markets like this is really important and you get to see things you wouldn't normally in the big brand stores.

Do You Need To Unfollow Someone For Your Happiness?



There is a lot of negativity online and unfortunately nearly everyone is online these days even the bullies, trolls and awful people you have encountered in real life. There are people online who's accounts you look at, compare yourself to and then feel generally shitty about yourself for the rest of the day. It's easy to say "don't compare yourself'' to them you are who you are but sometimes you just can't help it.  

Scrolling through your instagram and your brain is like "I should eat healthy like that", "Why don't I look like that?" or "That person used to bully me". It's hard as people get older they must realise some of their mistakes as children but when someone who made your school life horrid follows you, do you follow back? I did, I felt obliged too. I felt like I didn't have a choice.

Las Iguanas Autumn/Winter | Coventry


Coventry has really upped it's game lately with restaurants. I remember a time when the most exciting place to go was McDonalds or the pub. Now we have a whole host of restaurants and one of the ones I was most excited to try was Las Iguanas. If you haven't heard of it, have you been living in the jungle? It's a well known and now a well loved firm favourite of mine.

Las iguanas focuses on celebrating the Latin American food and the amazing flavours they have to offer. Mexican food has always been one of my favourites. There is nothing quite like chilli and rice to warm you up on a cold day.

I was kindly invited to see their new menu and what they had to offer. I took two of my lovely blogger friends, Isobel from Fashionista Chic and Saffron from Pixie Bow UK. It was such a nice atmosphere from the moment we stepped in. The bartender instantly greeted us, then grabbed someone to seat us. The restaurant is very open with nearly all the walls being big windows so a lot of light can get in, every bloggers dream.

A Few Ways To Look After Yourself During The Time Of The Month*


//01 Light exercise

Although exercise is the last thing on your mind when you feel like your insides are being torn apart, a bit of light exercise can really make a massive different. A walk through your neighbourhood with your partner or bestie having a chat can get you out the house. If you feel up to it, speed up that walk and get your heart rate going.

My favourite thing to do is do some light yoga from Tara Stiles youtube channel, she has a lot of gentle relaxation yoga exercises. When you do light stretching and yoga it's like it massages your insides from the slow movements and poses. Then jump into the bath and I feel 100 times better.
