Edinburgh at Christmas

I’ve always been a massive fan of the capital and what it has to offer. The buildings, the shops and the contrast between the old town and the new town. I love the buzz of the city, not sure if I would like living in the city, but for the odd weekend away or day out I think its grand.  Every year Ross and I go out for a christmas dinner together, this year Ross came up with the great idea of a day out instead. We had originally planned to just go into the markets and have a mooch around, but he later surprised me with a reservation at The Dome (boy did good!). If you don’t know the place then, it is the most beautifully decorated place in the city during the christmas period. The building is around 200 years old and it was originally designed for the Bank of Scotland. From October through to the New Year it is covered in gorgeous lights and has one of the biggest christmas trees you …

Welcome to the family, Bailey

What a week it has been! My house has been completely turned upside down, everything has been chewed on, peed on & pooped on! Oh, the joys of little Bailey. I wouldn’t have it any other way and she’s 100% part of the family now.  Bailey is a 9 week old F2 apricot Cavapoo with a full personality and a mischievous streak. We looked into several types of dogs but we had agreed on a Cavapoo because we loved Cockapoos but wanted something a little smaller for our house. They are also hypoallergenic which is great as Ross has asthma and no one likes dog hairs all over the house!  We travelled to Newcastle to get her last Saturday after only meeting her once before. She hasn’t disappointed us at all. I was really worried about how she would react in the car but she slept the full way in her little bed. When we got her into the house she settled straight away, showing off and playing with her new toys. It wasn’t until …

Get Christmas Ready with The Nelson’s

It’s my favourite time of year! There’s nothing better than filling your home with sparkle, lights and more candle’s than usual. This year I got a few new bits for the house and thought I would put it all together for you incase you needed any inspiration for your home too. I linked as many of the products I could. One of my dreams is to have a massive 12ft tree in a beautiful bay window. However, until then I love my 6ft basic tree. Our tree and the accessories were bought when we first moved into our home 2 years ago but the styles are still available. Tree // The Range Baubles // The Range Lights // Asda or Amazon * This year I picked up a few extra bits for our TV unit. I had my eye on the garland and light up star from The White Company but managed to find a cheaper substitute from Argos. It is basically the exact same, might not last as long but I’m happy with it regardless. …

Our Wedding Pictures

Evening all! What a lovely surprise I had this morning when I opened my emails to our wedding pictures. We have over 1000 photos and only have 250 spaces in our hard copy wedding album… how are we ever going to choose?! Anyway, I asked if you guys would like a little post with some of my fav pictures and you all voted yes! So, here you go… P.s MASSIVE thanks to our photographer, you captured the magic of our day perfectly. https://rcm-eu.amazon-adsystem.com/e/cm?o=2&p=288&l=ez&f=ifr&linkID=f70cfabadb2862f262e6965cbc04b84a&t=lifebypam-21&tracking_id=lifebypam-21

Nothing Ventured, Nothing Gained

There’s never been a truer saying. I decided that it was time for me to live by that and I wanted you to know. My blogs all about being real, and this is me showing you who I am. I am now following my dreams and venturing out on my own. What am I? A lone solider, an entrapenuer or just a bloody idiot. Either way, it’s a done deal. I never thought I would be saying that, never mind a few months after getting married. I feel so free. I create my own well being and the sky is the limit on what I do. It was a big step for me to take. I had a lot of things to take into consideration like, my home & being able to pay the bills. As well as making sure I’m not missing out on life by not earning some sort of income. Thankfully, I had a lot of support for doing this. It’s so much easier to see a plan coming together when you have someone to …
