Giving less fucks, more film soundtracks and embracing the festivities #LittleLoves

The last week has been a bit of a game-changer for me. Going along to Outlaw 2017 and reading Sarah Knight's first and third books have really given me a kick up the ass to work on my side-hustle in 2018. I reckon her second book (have I asked Santa for enough yet?) really will… Continue reading Giving less fucks, more film soundtracks and embracing the festivities #LittleLoves

Last month I wrote a post on why you should support small businesses this Christmas and I'm pleased to say that my Christmas shopping is nearly finished and approximately 75% of what I've purchased is from small businesses.

This year I'm making a conscious effort to support small businesses when it comes to Christmas shopping, from food to gifts, to decorations and gift wrap.

The ultimate Christmas planner from Busy B

Christmas. It's the most wonderful time of the year. And most stressful.

Sure, he has the odd paddy but it's generally when he has to leave the park or if you're eating something and he isn't. Over the last month he really has blossomed and it's been amazing to have… Continue reading Jenson: 19 months old
