Instagram August

One of my favourite social media platforms has to be Instagram. Each night before bed I scroll through my feed liking and commenting on photos that have been posted. I don’t know if it’s my love of photography or the fact I’m slightly nosey (aren’t we all?) but I love scrolling through people’s photos and getting a small glimpse into their day.

There are a few reasons for this but mainly because I take… View Post

A sophisticated living room makeover with LOVEThESIGN

Here is a feeling I am pretty sure everyone has been familiar with at some point or another.

My right eye doesn’t have much of a prescription… View Post

ENJOYING A TAKEAWAY ON A BUDGET

I enjoy having the odd takeaway but I don’t enjoy the prices that companies charge. Personally I think many of them are overpriced and unless I can find a money off code or voucher I don’t order as I can’t justify paying so much for one meal. Luckily for me I am a bargain hunter. If I need to buy something I will wait until there is an offer on or I will look for a discount code which will usually be 10 or 20 percent off.  My favourite takeaway is pizza, pepperoni pizza to be specific – YUM!
