So for a while, Jack and I have been trying to save for a house. We’ve seen 2 different mortgage advisers, we’ve opened our own Help To Buy ISAs and we’ve researched every possible Government Scheme for first time buyers available. We’ve saved and saved and finally feel like we could be getting somewhere! However, there are downsides to all the saving. Saving £200 into a Help to Buy ISA each month is great, and it realistically sets a precedent for the future of my saving habits, even though it has obviously had a big impact on how we live our lives!

So two weeks ago, it was our anniversary. Thats right, Jack and I have been together for a full 6 years. Time flies right? Well now, I don’t know if I could imagine life without him. All his funny little quirks, the way he accepts mine, the way he looks after me when I’m sick and the way he breathes so weird when he sleeps (it annoys the hell out of me but when he’s not there I miss it – what can you do?).
So I started to notice articles recently which discuss and list reasons why their relationship or marriage has been successful. Most of them list the same or similar things. Respect, loving each other, accepting each other – they were the main themes that each article ran Read More »
Those of you who know me in real life know that I can be pretty wild. I know I’m considered an extrovert, like a drink or two, and have always been one of the last ones standing on a night out. I pretty much lived by ‘Go Hard or Go Home’. That is, until recently.
As some of you may know, I used to work in a restaurant. Scratch that, I used to live, breath and work a restaurant. I was there at least 5 days a week for a minimum of 52 hours a week, and said restaurant was 45 mins away from Cheltenham. On top of that I would go clubbing at least once a week (normally twice), see my friends at the pub at least once a Read More »
So, if you’re anything like me, Halloween is a lot more fun than Christmas. I’ll admit it, there are aspects of Christmas I can’t stand. Aspects I full on loath. And aspects I just have a minor dislike for. Altogether, Christmas is rubbish. Yes the drinking is really fun, the eating too, and some of the socializing is good (some of it mandatory), but other than that, I just don’t get the Christmas hype. So I thought I’d do a how to for those who have a similar out look on the festivities, and how you can make the holiday more bearable for you, and yourself more bearable for those around you!

Ok so todays blog post comes in the form of more of a rant. But there are hundreds of you out there, men and women alike, who will know EXACTLY how I’m feeling. That feeling when, for whatever reason, you just need 5 minutes to calm down, collect yourself, or de-stress. It could be at work or at home, but it happens to each of us at least once in our lives!

So today I feel I need to focus on a feeling I have more than semi regularly; the feeling that I don’t know where I’m going in my life! Well realistically, I’m just going forward, we all are. But sometimes it does feel like you’re stuck too much in a rut, or are going completely off course. This can be a difficult feeling to handle, especially when you’re nearing a deadline, or are feeling building pressure from outside sources, but it is manageable.
