You might already know how much we adored Flowers, so I was really excited to catch Flours at Chapter Arts. With a huge focus on the female form and turmoil, I was very excited to see what may or may not evolve… Review: Flours at Chapter Arts I attended the performance with Nanny Kim, writer at Brummie Gal in Cardiff and I have to say from the off, we aren’t huge fans of the new…

Last week we headed to Bluestone but before we checked in we had a little review trip to Folly Farm. We adore Folly Farm, it’s the one place I feel truly cares for their animals in the hope to prevent extinction and harm. There’s also lots in the way of ‘play’ for the kiddies, so you’re never stuck for something to do! Summer Sun, Summer Fun: Folly Farm Review It was a blazing hot day…

In between them my children can be found, putting on voices and pretending to buy groceries. It’s joyous and beautiful to watch. Last week George and…

We always get really excited around Easter time; the flowers are blooming, the sun is (mostly) shining and it’s the best excuse ever to eat chocolate!

When it comes to food, I’ll try anything once, so Japanese inspired chocolates were on the menu for us this Easter! We were given a recipe for chocolate truffles, and this base was then…

  Who is feeling the love??? Well I certainly am… After the first anniversary of my Dad’s death, I now look upon Valentine’s Day as a bittersweet time. On the one hand it will always be the aftermath of death, but on the other it stands for love and living to love and loving to live… Something my Dad did, oh so well… So for this Valentine’s Day, I have written a poem for my…

So, if you know me you will know that I have studied writing for a few years, as well as doing odd bits on the side with different types of writing jobs such as blogs or city guides. Since my Father died (barely 2 weeks ago) I have had a conflict of interest with my current life. I am supposedly studying to become a midwife. A subject I am very passionate about, but it has…
