Inside The Blogger Bag


When Kipling so kindly sent this Life Saver bag in my direction it almost metaphorically paralleled its name. By appearance, it's certainly no ordinary bag and by practicality, it's certainly no ordinary bag, either. With its flamboyant symmetrical and mucho colourful print it's dazzling on the eyes but it's also the sort of bag that you can store with everything but the kitchen sink. The many compartments, the luxury details and the character of the bag deal to the functional needs of a typical blogger's diverse but oh so cliche range of daily adventures as well as being stylish for any occasion.

The Seven Stages Of Online Shopping


You know the deal, you slump down on the sofa with a heavy sigh after a hard day of graft with every intention to treat yourself to the latest steal online; your phone grasped in your hand with the desired apps open and your laptop on the other side of the room begging you to ditch one piece of technology for the other. The road to a successful online shop is a long and strenuous process between wanting the items on your list and actually having those gems in front of you to cradle like a newborn baby. Online shopping isn't just online shopping. It's a test of self control and destruct, a therapeutic motive, an attentive gift to the torturous soul... and that's just the start!

Remembering the Memories of Mum and Dad


Today is Mother's Day but, coincidentally, this year it's fallen on the day the entire circumference of my heart is occupied with the other half of my reason for being on this earth right now, right this minute. For me it's also a reflective, significant and woeful day, for me it's the day I miss the presence of beaming smiles and infectious laughs and annoying teasing, for me it's the anniversary of losing my dad. Today marks 8 years since he gained angel status. Now, it doesn't mean I'm not going to celebrate the unconditional love, friendship, care and compassion my mum has given me since birth but it means there's an extra space to include the appreciation of two incredible humans who shaped me into the person I am today.
