Giving Back This Christmas - A Personal Post

Shop the look: Jumper and similar here / scarf

Hey guys! A bit of a personal post from me today, something close to my heart. I've definitely changed a lot in the last few years, I often think about the things I've been through and how they've shaped me as a person and I'm glad these things have happened some days because at least I'm a better person for it (at least I hope anyway). I at least try to be a better person every day but no-one is perfect. There are many things I've seen, experienced and dealt with, and they've only made me stronger and made my passions for certain things stronger too. Open to read more.

Rudding Park Rooftop Spa And Hotel, Harrogate

rudding park rooftop spa
For those of you who are regular readers (hi, I love you), you will know that, like for many others, this year has been a challenging one for me: watching a close family member cope and adapt to living with a debilitating chronic illness, seeing how depression can take over even the strongest of people (it really can happen to anyone), grieving over a friend whose life was cut short way too young after suffering a terrible illness and seeing my grandad suffer numerous illnesses, thinking we may lose him. On top of what has been a hectic year to say the very least, this has been an incredibly tough one and something I wasn’t mentally or emotionally prepared for. Although there are no easy fixes to life’s challenges, I decided to treat my brother to a special present for his birthday and, a treat for my Mum too. I feel lucky every single day that my brother is still here, kicking and fighting and I know that money cannot buy happiness but, with support, care and love, it can make hard days easier. My Mum has been through an incredibly tough year too, and somehow, through all these difficult years, not crumbling, not once. Honestly? I don’t know how she’s done it. She’s my biggest inspiration. I decided to treat the two most important people in my life to a trip nearby to Rudding Park for some relaxation and I couldn’t be more excited to tell you about this place. Read on for more.

Mojito Superfood Smoothie Recipe

Hello hello, so today I wanted to get back into the wellbeing/nutritious/good food zone and give you another recipe. Smoothies seem like more of a summer option but they're still just as good in winter. They’re a great way to fill you up, get loads of goodness into your body and they definitely start my day the right way. These recipes are all mixed up with a secret ingredient so today I’m going to be showing you a mojito smoothie recipe (even if it is December). Let’s do this!

Ted Baker is usually on most of our Christmas lists, in our household anyway, we always have Christmas with Ted. I’m that girl who walks down the Boots Christmas aisle, getting increasingly more and more excited over the beautiful gift sets. Today I wanted to show you a few of my favourite Christmas products from The Ted Baker collection in the hopes that it inspires any Christmas shopping you may be about to do, I also thought I'd give you a little look into my Christmas pamper routine because I swear by it. Christmas for me is the one time of the year where I sit back, relax and have a serious pamper. This is the first in my series of Christmas gifting posts and I’m so excited. I absolutely adore Christmas and all things festive eek.
