My Bucket List (Repost)

Hello Everyone!

I originally wrote my bucket list in 2018. This is what I wrote and I would still like to do these.

There are many people who have a bucket list which details what they would love to achieve. Here are my 10 things on my Bucket List!
1. Travel to Italy
Italy is a beautiful country, there are so many places to visit and of course the lovely food!


2. Have a Spa Day
I’ve never had the chance to go for a spa day! I would love to do this just for a day to relax and to treat myself!


3. Own my own house
I would love to own my own house and decorate it to how I would like. I already have many interior ideas of what I would love my home to be like.
4. Become a mum
Working in childcare has given me a big insight in to looking after children. I would one day like to have children of my own.
5. Learn to play guitar
I already own an acoustic guitar and would love to learn how to play it well.


6. Sing at a recording studio
I love to sing! It would be amazing to be able to spend time in a recording studio and record a song!


7. Raise money for charity
I have done charity work before but would love to raise a lot of money for Diabetes UK! It is a charity that has supported me in the past and I would love to raise money to support the charity.
8. Achieve my ideal weight
I have battled for years with my weight and I would love to be at a weight that I am happy with and can maintain.
9. Learn to dance
I’ve always enjoyed dancing, but had to stop years ago due to an injury. I would love to learn a style of dance that I could continue to do!


10. Visit a water park
When I was younger I always wanted to go to a water park but never had the opportunity to. I’m not the biggest fan of rollercoasters but a water park sounds fun to me!

New Year’s Resolutions (Repost)

Hello Everyone!

As I have previously explained, I have started a new blog page. A few of my posts I will be re-uploading and this is one of them. Please let me know what your New Year’s Resolutions are! 

Towards the end of 2019 I decided on some goals that I wanted to achieve this year, in 2020.

My first goal is to start going to the gym or swimming at least twice a week. I currently have a membership at my local gym but I only go once a week. To improve my health I want to go to the gym more to help me to lose weight.

My second goal is to have a more healthier diet. I will continue to food plan as I do now, but with a more wider variety of different meals. If you have any healthy meal ideas, please comment below.

My third goal works with my previous goals. By going to the gym more often and eating a healthier diet it will help me to lose weight. I don’t have a weight I want to get down to, I want to see what is best for me and where I feel happiest.

My forth goal is to continue to save money to go towards my boyfriend and I getting our own place. Towards the end of 2019 I opened an ISA and I want to do what I can to save up money towards our future together.

My final goal is to have more ‘relax’ days. Towards the end of 2019 I was always on the go and I never stopped. This eventually meant I was feeling very run down. In 2020 I want to make sure I set time aside to do things for me such as; taking a relaxing bath or sitting down and reading a good book.

5 Things to Keep you Busy in Lockdown

Hello Everyone!

The current situation in the World is new for everyone and it takes some getting used to, not being able to go out to see family and friends and staying at home all the time.

I will be honest in saying the first week of lockdown I found it difficult to adjust, but I have now found it a lot easier as the weeks have gone on.

Below I will be giving you some ideas of what you can do to keep yourself busy while at home.

1. Baking

I have always enjoyed baking but don’t often have the time to do it. Spending this amount of time at home has meant that I have been able to do this. One of the things I have made is a traybake. It was a basic sponge cake recipe with icing and sprinkles on top.
When baking it doesn’t have to be something complicated, we have also been making some easter nests. All we needed was shredded wheat (you can use rice krispies/cornflakes if you wish), melted chocolate and some mini eggs to decorate.

2. Couch to 5K

I have began incorporating the Couch to 5K as part of my daily exercise. I will sometimes just go for a walk and other days I will do a Couch to 5K run. I make sure that I keep my distance from other people that I see when I’m out. I am currently on week 2 and it is going well so far!
Spend time creating your own playlist on your phone to get the perfect running tracks for you. Each session lasts 30 minutes and it gives your mind something to focus on. I have also been tracking my runs on an app called Strava so I can see how far I have ran and what my pace is.

3. Arts and Crafts

I have recently been enjoying doing Diamond Art. I ordered mine at the beginning of the year and I have now been able to take more time in trying to complete it. I have also been doing some cross stitch.
Spend some time doing something creative, whether that is drawing, colouring, painting or something more.

4. Spring Cleaning

Now is the perfect time to have a sort out and a good clean. Pull out the furniture you don’t usually move and sort through each thing that you find. Even the drawer full of random bits and pieces that everyone has in their kitchen! I have already sorted through my make-up and toiletries and I next want to sort through my clothes.

5. Trying out New Recipes

I have enjoyed trying out some new recipes and cooking more meals from scratch now that I have the time to do this. I have made a Cottage Pie and I tried making the Dalgona Coffee for my boyfriend, something I haven’t tried before.

Please tag me on Instagram in what you have been up to and what you have been doing while you have been in lockdown.

I would love it if you could subscribe to my blog and follow me on my different social media pages.

A Fresh Start

Hello Everyone!

This is the start of my new blog page as my previous page got into a bit of a mess so I wanted to start afresh. To start with there will be a mix of new Blog content and some reposts of some of my old blog posts. This is so my future posts will make more sense as I will refer back to some previous posts.

A little about me.

I’m 24 years old and I’m from Essex in the UK. I enjoy doing crafts and spending time with my friends and family. I am interested in life and home blogs and this is where most of my content will be focused. If there is anything you are interested in and would like me to write about please comment below.

I aim to upload each Saturday around Midday.

I would really appreciate it if you would follow my blog page and follow me on my different accounts on social media. I will be uploading on my social media pages regularly.
