Review: The Bath Arms, Longleat

Hey Owlets,

Today I'm doing something a little different - I'm not quite sure how this happened but I seem to have fallen into reviewing a lot of restaurants recently - not that I'm complaining! Today's, however, is particularly special because I got to visit the beautiful Bath Arms in Longleat.

This is probably one of the more idyllic places I've been - we pulled up to the kind of building that personifies "cosy country pub". We then spent 10 minutes trying to find somewhere to park as despite it being a hotel and restaurant, there were only about ten parking spaces to satisfy both parts of the business. Considering it's in the middle of nowhere so you have no choice but to take the car, the parking situation was a bit of a pain. We managed to park nearby alongside a grass verge, and after Dad helped me out the car over what felt like a mountain, we headed inside.

Things Have Changed

Heartbreak Break Up Advice Plus Size Blogger

Hey Owlets,

You may have noticed that I’ve been a bit light on the blog post front recently. Being honest, 2017 has been both one of the best years of my life, but also with only two months of the year left, it’s pretty much been a write off. 

When I went on the cruise, I was running away to escape life for a while and it worked. I came back and vowed that I would stay how I felt after two weeks of finding myself along the Mediterranean coast. Obviously though, that didn’t last and I was soon retreating back under the duvet because it was easier than facing real life.

Style Files: What I Wore in Malaga

Plus Size Holiday Fashion in Malaga

Hey Owlets!

I'm still in holiday mode and that's very much helped by the growing list of travel/fashion/ holiday content that I keep wanting to write. One of the things that I was really keen about was documenting what I wore in each new city, as when I was buying and packing for this trip, I was struggling to know what to wear (although I did wear almost everything I took with me!). I'm trying a new format today focusing on only one outfit, so let me know if you like it!

Life Lessons From The Holiday of a Lifetime

Plus Size Travel Blogger

Hey Owlets,

Long time, no see. You may have noticed that I’ve been a bit quiet recently but I had a good reason. A month ago as I write this I was sat on the sofa having not left the house in 5 days, staring at my laptop screen but not doing any work, not daring to go on social media to see the next hateful comment, either from a stranger or so-called friends because, quite frankly, I couldn’t take anymore. My mental health was the worst it’s ever been and I don’t think I’d felt as consistently low as I was feeling then. 

In come my amazing parents.

Finding The Job You Love (With Vorwerk)

Hey Owlets,

Today I wanted to talk to you about something a little different. In case you didn’t know, I’ve just graduated uni. If I’m honest I’m stuck in a bit of a rut and apparently it’s not just me as only 13% of us actually enjoy our jobs and I’m determined to be one of those. The Vorwerk team asked me to take part in their #NoMore9to5 campaign which is designed to raise awareness of how people really feel about their career.

August in Pictures

Sunflower Fields Portrait in Radstock


Bloody hell - where's the time gone? I feel like it's been so long since I last sat down to chat to you, either on the blog or on YouTube. Every month I promise I'm going to start writing this post as the month goes on, but it never happens. It's now half way through September, the nights are rapidly closing in and I'm just waiting for the leaves to start falling. Before we get to that though, let's sit down for the monthly "In Pictures" recap - the last month of Summer!!

Dear Network Marketers: Please Stop

Bristol Blogger Network Marketing Problems Juice Plus Social Media
If you use LinkedIn or Facebook then you’ll probably be just as frustrated by the number of spam/marketing messages you get every day, telling you about their wonderful product that you can’t possibly live without (which you’ve survived perfectly fine without until they crawled into your inbox). They’re irritating but on the whole they’re a mild annoyance that you just ignore as you get on with your day - apart from this week.

Follow Me To: Birmingham & Las Iguanas

Brindley Place Pitcher and Piano Birmingham Canal Birmingham Blogger

Morning Owlets,

Sorry I've been a bit quiet recently - things have been so busy that I've not had chance to sit down and chat to you on anything other than social media. I thought today we could have a bit of a catch up and do another "Follow Me To" post. I stopped doing these because I felt like it was getting boring when I was always going to Birmingham and doing the same things (I know, I'm a bit of a creature of habit) but I promise today I actually did something different.
