You know when you have one of those days where nothing goes right and you don’t know how you’re going to make it through the day in one piece? Enter the worst Monday of 2018 so far. I’m not sure how I made it through without slamming my head into a wall but it’s done now and tomorrow is another, hopefully much brighter day. I basically ran home and jumped straight into a hot bubble bath for a long overdue pamper. It felt good to soak away the day and although I now resemble an old prune, I feel a thousand times better. There’s a giant homemade fish pie in the oven a la moi, the cats are all settled ready for an evening of snuggles and the only question that remains is HTGAWM or Black Mirror? •

I’ve been looking back through old photos today and I found this from our first ever trip together to Berlin. Since then we’ve been on 21 flights, visited 8 countries and made many unforgettable memories. Although we don’t have any trips on the horizon for this year, we have something even better! Gavin has finally found a normal 9-5 job which means no more 4.30am alarms and no more 10pm finishes 🙌 I don’t know what I’m more excited for, the amount of time we will get to spend together now or a full nights sleep without being woken up at stupid o’clock ☺️

I’ve seen today described as blue Monday and looking outside I can see why. I’m craving a Holiday and with all these deals landing in my inbox I’ve been very seriously tempted. I can’t wait for the days to start getting longer again and the sunshine to start making an appearance. For now I’m stuck at work counting down the hours until I can run home and have a nice cold glass of vino 🍷 happy Monday people!
Another day, another bubble bath! I feel like this weekend completely whizzed by so I’m drowning my sorrows with a good old cider, a long old soak and bit of a pamper! Luckily I’ve got a busy week ahead which is the perfect distraction for my first full working week of 2018. I’m loving the Night Circus so far, the story has me completely enchanted and I’ve completely gotten lost in its magic. Excuse me while I go and runaway with the nearest Circus I can find 🎠
I’m finally home after spending the afternoon catching up with my favourite gal pals over a pornstar or two. Although I hated my entire university experience, Southampton is like a second home to me and I met some of my closest friends there. 2018 is all about days like today, spending time with those who matter the most. Cheers to good food and even better company ❤️

At the beginning of a new year I always feel so positive and ready for the year ahead but this year I’m feeling a bit all over the shop. I started last year in a job where I had a clear cut plan, there was progression and support and I was surrounded by people who believed in me. This year I started completely the opposite, back at the bottom of the ladder, surrounded by people who don’t believe in me or my capabilities. It’s taken 26 long, hard years but I finally know my worth and I know I can achieve anything I set my mind to. It’s going to be a tough old journey but I’ve got a new sense of determination to prove all these non believers wrong! For now I’m heading off for an early night ready to start again tomorrow! How’s your 2018 been so far?
Today is only my second day back at work and I’m already craving a holiday and some sunshine! The only positive is that it’s a four day week so there’s only 3 more days to suffer through before a break. I plan on spending my day daydreaming about all the holidays I can’t afford to go on this year 😖 I wish they taught you the importance of money management in school, that would have been a lot more helpful then trigonometry that’s for sure. How’s your week so far?
Just like that the Christmas holidays are over and it’s back to work tomorrow 💔 I’ve had an incredible 10 days off with my boys but I’m not quite sure how I’m going to cope all day tomorrow without these two little cuties to cuddle! I’m not sure whether it’s because 2018 started on a Monday but I’ve had a burst of motivation today! The decorations are all down and away, the chores are all done and the last few admin bits for the flat have all been completed. Now it’s time for an early night ready for my 7am alarm in the morning 😭
I’m seriously struggling to come to terms with the fact that Christmas is over and it’s back to work on Tuesday 😖 I’ve basically spent the last 4 days living my best cat life, eating everything in sight and napping after every meal! Today was slightly more productive and although I didn’t make it out of my pyjamas I did manage to get 3 blogposts written which is just completely unheard of! To celebrate I’m treating myself to a long hot bath full of lush goodies and a @whittarduk raspberry ripple hot chocolate which is the stuff of dreams! P.S. how dreamy is my new bath caddy 👌 how’s your week been?
It’s the last working day of 2017 and I’m so excited I could pop! Having not had Christmas off for years I’m so grateful to be in a job this year where I get 10 glorious days to spend with all my nearest and dearest! I’ve got a weekend of catching up with all my favourite people and then I’ve got my first Christmas with Gavin to look forward to! The last 2 years I’ve been away with family so we’ve celebrated a bit later but this year he’s coming to my Mum’s for Christmas Day and I can already tell it’s going to be one of the best yet. What are you looking forward to this Christmas?
We spent the whole of yesterday searching for a tree after leaving it til is the last minute but just when I was about to give up we lucked out and found the perfect tree in Homebase. We’ve spent this evening decorating the flat and I am so completely in love with our Christmas tree this year. We’ve been collecting decorations from some of the places we’ve been on our travels but we didn’t come across any when we were in Warsaw. I spotted this gorgeous peacock in John Lewis and it reminded me of our time in Lazienki Park so I just couldn’t leave it behind. These little touches on our tree are such a lovely reminder of all the places we have been together, do you have any sentimental decorations?
I’m so ready for the first weekend in our cosy new flat and luckily Gavin is off so we get to spend it together! I am slightly feeling like I’ve been hit by a bus so I’m gonna have an evening of pampering to perk me up ready for the festivities. Although I don’t have a Christmas party this year, I don’t need an excuse to get dressed up and my number one party essential has to be these liquid eye shadows from @stilauk. I treated myself to both sets as soon as they were available and I am completely obsessed with them! Here’s hoping there’s a full sized duo chrome under my tree this year 🎄 What are you party essentials?
