    Zippos Circus – The Best Night Of The Summer

    Every once in a while, a press trip comes along that is an absolute dream come true, because not only does it give me some fantastic pictures and a great story to share with you, but it makes my son laugh for two hours solid too. Monday night delivered such a trip. My family and I went to along to see Zippos Circus at the Low Green in Ayr. We were gifted tickets to see the show and have some snacks, but all opinions are my own. If you live in the UK, you might have seen posters for Zippos Circus around over the years. I know I have. They…

    Let’s Get Personal

    It’s been a while since I wrote an off-the-cuff blog that isn’t spammy sponsored, so I thought that it was about time I got back into my office and wrote something that is a bit more personal.

I’ve written blog posts about him before and he even has his own Instagram page where he’s slowly building a loyal following of people who love him just as much as I do.

    Everlast Rocketbooks – Review and Giveaway

    I don’t know if all writers feel this way, but I am totally in love with stationery. My house is full of it. I probably have way too much. One item in particular that I completely obsess over is notebooks. You can never have enough in my opinion and I’ve tried so many different kinds, from the budget ones, to cutesy fashion notebooks to expensive artisan types. They’re all good in my opinion. Since becoming a student and starting to take blogging seriously, I’ve been looking for notebooks that offer a little more than just a piece of paper to write on. I’ve tried some smart notebooks before and been…

    Summer Solstice: Top 10 Ways To Celebrate

    You might remember that back in March I wrote a post about ways to celebrate the spring equinox. Well, it’s time for another seasonal post. Today is a huge day for many people. It’s the summer solstice and it’s going to be a time of celebration and positivity. You don’t have to be a Pagan to celebrate solstice though. Anyone can and everyone should! While we, in the northern hemisphere, celebrate summer solstice in June, those in the southern hemisphere will have to wait until 21st December to put the suggestions in this blog to use! Here is a list of ten ways that you can celebrate the longest day…
