Life Lately: November 2018

Evening All! I just thought I would pop on another post about what I have been getting unto this month. November is always a big month for me because it’s my birthday month! Another year older and I am sure this is going to be the busiest year to date. You can read about my birthday weekend over on my other post and read about our time at Boclair House. The rest of my birthday was just about chilling out and spending time with the family. November was also the month we got to meet our newest addition to the Nelson Family. Christmas came early for me when Ross surprised me with a puppy and I have been full of excitement since. She is currently based in Sunderland so we took the time out to travel down and meet her. Nowadays, you have to be super careful when buying a puppy so there was no way we were waiting until the day we took her home. Bailey was everything we could have hoped for and …

We’ve both been lucky enough to have some time off over the festive period and feel very well rested for the New Year.

The only thing that disappointed me was that there was no snow. The further away from our house we got, and the closer to the hotel it disappeared bit by bit. Nevertheless it was a BEAUTIFUL …

Friday Night is Pamper Night 

Hi all! It’s Friday and what better night of the week to chill out and have a little ‘me time’ . Being in a relationship, working full time or studying full time, whatever takes up your week, it’s time to let it go for a night. So, to kirk start the weekend I’ve decided to share my top tips to the ultimate pamper night!   1. Bubble Bath Every night should start with a bubble bath! If  your thinking “baths are so boring” well, I can’t exactly blame you! I’ve had many occasions where the idea of a big bubble bath is better than the reality. But, I have some tips to help! Try taking a book or listening to your headphones ( just don’t drop anything in the water!!! ). It’s amazing how time passes when you have something to preoccupy your mind. Next, you have to have the right bubble bath cream. If like me, you have a box full of bath accessories that you get for birthdays and Christmas then this is …
