8 Things I Didn’t Know Before Blogging

When you start something new there are always things to discover and learn that makes everyday different. Blogging is no different. Despite still being relatively new at this whole blogging thing, I have learnt so much in so little time. That’s the good thing, as the blogging world is constantly moving, evolving and switching directions that no one day is ever the same.

Fancy A Cuppa? A Shibui Tea Bags Review

I love a good cup of tea, as stereotypically British as that is, it's my drink of choice. I have one in the morning before I start my day, occasionally at work when I can and at night after I get home. So when I received some sample pyramid tea bags from Shibui Tea to taste and review, I cannot tell you how happy I was to try some new flavours. And widen my horizons, if you will.

Night On The Town: Cocktail Making

Nights out tend to be the same with no one night standing out from the rest. So after being included in an eventful night out that I enjoyed immensely, I thought it was worth sharing. Recently my sister turned 18 and as it’s a big birthday, we decided to do something slightly different. I’d heard about cocktail making classes before where hen do’s, birthday parties and girls nights out spend their time learning how to make their favourite cocktail as an alternative form of pre-drinking in preparation for a night out. But never before had I experienced one of these classes myself, so I went into the event with little expectations.

Getting Organised, Calendar Style

I cannot tell you how much I love a good calendar. I've never been a particular enthusiast of the new year hype, but there's something to be said of preparing for a fresh year. One that's been untouched by frustration, questions about the future, career highs and lows as well as personal achievements or dilemmas. In a way it signifies a whole new start and the next chapter in our life. This is why even if I'm not feeling the new year excitement, a new calendar always gives me the much needed motivation to truly begin the next year.
