happy recently

It’s been a little while since I last wrote a ‘happy things‘ post so I thought I’d put another one together as there’s been many amazing things happening in my life recently.

It’s been a very busy couple of months but as Christmas rapidly approaches, I’mĀ hopingĀ that things might start to slow down. The many things that have put a smile on my face in the last few weeks were hard to condense into a list of just 10 things but here goes…

I’ve put together a pretty hefty gift guide for your mum or grandma and I hope it’ll give you some inspiration as to what to get for the most special ladies in your life!

First of all I just want to apologise profusely for the terrible quality of these photos; the atmosphere of the event was amazing but a little too dark to take decent photos. And second of all, The Botanist First Birthday party event in York was *potentially* the best event I’ve ever been to!

Christmas Gift Guide – For Your Boyfriend


For some reason, I always like to think of myself as a good gift buyer for Matt, yet every Christmas/birthday/Valentine’s Day/any special occasion I always find myself Googling ‘What to buy my boyfriend’.

I always manage to get him lovely presents (at least he never says otherwise…) and they’re always extremely thoughtful gifts but for some reason I always just panic before any occasion and I always end up resorting to good ol’ Google for some help.

That’s why today I’ve put together a thorough gift guide for your boyfriend in the hope that it’ll help you (and me) when choosing gifts for him this Christmas.
