Why You Should Travel in Winter

Paris in Winter Travel Tips What to do in France

Hey Owlets,

I don’t know about you but as soon as the leaves change and temperatures drop I find myself spending hours looking at holiday websites, planning my next trip and keeping an eye out for last minute deals. I’ve never been normal, so here’s why I prefer taking trips in the Winter.

Affordable Gift Guide: 2018

Affordable Christmas Gift Guide Under £50 Budget Gift Ideas 2018

Hey Owlets,

I have no idea where the last 11 months have gone, but it's Christmas gift guide season again! I've done things a little differently this time - I have an affordable gift guide, luxury gift guide and an advent calendar guide to share with you, with one product in each category because I'm not repeating the level of stress that I had last year! Today is the second of the three, which is my affordable gift guide. If you've not already seen my guide to alternative advent calendars, you can see that here. Now, I have lots of cool things to show you so I won't ramble on, time for the first gift!

Trying Alternative Advent Calendars

Christmas Advent Calendar Guide 2018

Hey Owlets,

Today I have a different kind of guide for you - this was actually inspired by one of you emailing me to ask if I had any suggestions for alternatives as one of your children couldn't eat the chocolate, so thank you for the idea, it's a great one! I scoured the internet for the best and weirdest advent calendars I could find as well as trying my three favourites, so here we go!

5 Ways to get Cosy This Autumn

Devon Steam Railway Torquay Plus Size blogger

Hey Owlets,

I can't pretend anymore, it's definitely Autumn. So since I've been ignoring the darker nights and colder days for the last few weeks I'd thought we could talk about something to make the shift a bit easier. Literally the only good thing about Autumn is getting to curl up and feel warm and cosy so here's a few ways I'm going to be doing that with minimal effort.

My Month in Pictures: October

Independence of the Seas Royal Caribbean Cruise Ship Travel Blogger

Hey Owlets,

It feels so good to write something that isn't festive! Okay you might not have seen any of those posts yet but, trust me, I've been working on Christmas since August and by October I was well and truly ready for a break! This month is particularly special as I revisited the happiest place on Earth, and I'm sorry but that's not Disneyland. After last year's life changing trip I spent a good three months just waiting for October to roll around so I could get back on board Independence of the Seas. I didn't really do a lot other than my trip this month, so consider this a Follow Me To/ October in Pictures hybrid.

Let's Talk About Christmas

Bristol plus size fashion blogger

Hey Owlets,

I can’t believe it’s already time to start talking about this, but Christmas is right around the corner. Actually for me it’s been Christmas for several months but November still feels too early! Regardless, I’ve been writing Christmas content since September so I’m more than ready to start dressing in fluffy jumpers, lighting festive-scented candles, seeing pretty lights everywhere and singing about shepherds washing socks….or is that just our family that does that? Anyway, before I dive in, I wanted to chat to you about my plan for this year’s festive content.

Getting Fit: My Four Ride or Die Free Apps

Best Free Health and Fitness Apps for Weight Loss

Hey Owlets,

Last month I told you I wanted to get fit and I genuinely thought about the whole "join a gym and work with a trainer" thing, but I'm a plus size millennial so I didn't want to leave the house and walk to the gym, but the bigger reason for not joining was that I didn't want to feel judged for being plus size. So doing what any other self-respecting millennial would do,  I turned to the internet for help and it worked! I actually have a list on my phone of the apps I've tried with a rating next to them, but I decided to just focus on my four apps that I couldn't live without, and hopefully they can help you achieve your goals too.

What I Learnt from a Year of Saying Yes

Lessons from a year of saying yes

Hey Owlets,

After last week's post about what happened when I said yes for a year, this time I wanted to talk to you about what I've learnt and weirdly it's a lot. I'm genuinely shocked how much one word can change things, but it really has. So, as we have a lot to get to I'll stop rambling and get to the point for once.
