What Christmas Means To Me

 Image borrowed from Google

I absolutely adore Christmas time.  Every year I look forward to December, I always feel happy and content this month.  It’s my birthday in December, as well as Christmas and Hogmanay so I have a lot of things to celebrate.

Cruelty Free Superdrug Hair Therapy Oil Review

Superdrug make their own hair oil and if you don't have it, your hair is seriously missing out. They do 3 different varieties;  Hair Therapy With Argan Oil, Hair Therapy With Macademia and a coconut version (not pictured).  They retail at just £.3.99 and they are worth their weight in gold.  I love all 3, my favourites chop and change depending on my mood.

Saying Goodbye to Amelia


I adopted Amelia, my little baby with the Stitch ear, at the start of this year (see here) and I can honestly say, I am so glad I did because I loved her to bits and she brought all of us a lot of happiness.  I lost her a few months ago but I was too sad to post about it at the time.   Of course I am still sad and my flat still feels empty without her but the feelings are not as raw now.


Why Do We Need To Push Ourselves To The Limits?

Something I have noticed lately, is that people think you must be stressed to be living life to the full in both the professional and personal sides of your life.

Adult life is pretty much a blur of activity, isn’t it?  For me at least, I work during the day then squeeze everything else into my weeknights and weekends.  So in my free time I need to try and make space for exercising, socialising, visiting family, reading, writing, drawing, sewing and catching up with my TV, not to mention take care of myself by (attempting) healthy meals and 8 hours of sleep.  That is quite a lot, I don’t know how people with kids etc. do it!

Piperdam Review: Muirloch Executive Lodge

Kas and I spent a long weekend in Piperdam Lodges a while ago and I’ve been meaning to do a review since we came home.  We stayed in Muirloch Executive Lodge 20 and we loved every single minute of it!  Piperdam is a little self-catering lodge resort just outside Dundee but it feels like I was in the middle of nowhere, one of the reasons I loved it.  It has an on-site restaurant and bar, leisure and golf facilities and has a beautiful loch within its grounds.
