I think that it is impossible to deny that when it comes to fashion the French get it right. With their effortless style that while remains fairly casual is also very chic and the classic Parisian look never seems dated or out of touch. If your heading to the continent this year and what to capture that European look or perhaps your just embracing all that the UK has to offer but feel your wardrobe needs a bit of a refresh or update than I have put a few key points and tips together on how to bring a little bit of Paris into your home and wardrobe

1. The Essential Breton

The Breton top has been a staple since Coco Chanel introduced it into her nautical collection in 1917 and it needs to be in every wardrobe and has been worn by many a fashion icon over the years. It simply oozes French style while still being practical and is great paired up with some jeans or high waisted trousers.

2. Back to Black

In my book black and monochrome is always a good idea and it really doesn't have to be boring by layering it with different textures, fabrics and draping or matching your black outfit with a simple pattern or minimal but stylish accessories. Also add a pop of colour with some red lipstick which really stands out if your wearing black.

3. Jumpsuit

Jumpsuits are great for that effortless minimalist look which Parisians are famed for and are great if your going to be spending a exploring a new city as not only are they chic but also very practical. If your a little unsure why not try a simple black jumpsuit first and accessories it a nice bag and necklace or bracelet but don't go over board, French style is all about less is more.

4. Brogues and Flats

People often seem to think that when it comes to fashion that heels is needed but in fact the French ladies are great at pairing up stylish flats with their outfits in a way that is still very on point. This is also good news if your spending a weekend exploring the French Capital and want something that works well with your weekend outfit but also means you can walk around the city in ease.

5. Oversized

The French are not scared to wear oversized garments whether it be an oversized shirt, knitwear or jacket they pull it off by pairing it up with a while fitted and tailored pair of trousers or jeans. This just captures casual chic to a tee. Another thing is your attitude, French woman believe in themselves and their own style and that goes a long way in pulling off your look.

What the French are really good at is building a casual wardrobe of well thought out staples that work well together. They also believe in quality on quantity and less is more so next time your out shopping for some new key pieces keep this in mind.

Pink Parcel - Celebrating that time of the month

period care


So today I'm talking about periods, for some reason this topic is somehow still a little taboo yet as woman we all share this experience month in and month out and I think open dialogue about issues like this is really important as well as supporting your fellow lady especially as everyones experience is a little different.

Since having children mine have certainly changed, are heavier, more painful and I find my moods go up and down like a yo yo faster than before and talking to other mothers a similar age to myself (early thirties) they seem to have also seen a different before and after children. Saying that no matter if your a teenager or an adult it's not exactly the most pleasant or convenient time of the month as besides our moods it can often play havoc with our skin, we can feel bloated, it can affect our confidence and the list goes on.


period care



So when Pink Parcel got in touch asking if I wanted to touch out their fantastic period subscription boxes not only was I very interested but I was also intrigued. I think if there is any time of the month we need to practise a little self care it's around our menstrual cycle and that is just what the Pink Parcel offers, a little boost just for us as well as covering all your sanitary needs.

So what is Pink Parcel exactly?

Well it's a period focused subscription box that not only provides your months needs of either towels or tampons but also some luxury beauty, seasonal surprises, herbal teas and artisan chocolates all for £12.99 (although cheaper again if you sign up for 3months+) with free postage. Plus it comes in a completely recyclable cardboard packaging, win!



period care


So what did I think of the box?

Well firstly you are provided with more than a months supplies of sanitary towels (or tampons) including night time ones and even with a heavy or longer flow your certainly not going to run out. When it came to the treat box I was really impressed, the value on these products is amazing and you certainly get more than what you pay for.

Inside my box was

Maggie Anne Nail Varnish - this nail varnish won the Natural Health Awards in 2017 and I am loving this metallic Argentina shade - the nail varnished retail at £10.50

Sanatio Naturalis Sweet Orange Aromatherapy oil - I can't wait to use this and it retails at around £15

Pom Snowflake Earrings - these are so cute and retail at £8

The Beauty Crop Eyeshadow trio - such a sweet little mini eye shadow palette that is nourished with avocado and is cruelty free - retails at £8

So Susan Mesmer-eyes waterproof liquid eyeliner - made with main natural ingredients, vegan and cruelty free and retails at £18.99

English Laundry Signature purse spray - Full Size and retails at £16


beauty products



At the moment I am debating wether to switch over to a mooncup or reasonable towels but for now this box is excellent and a great way to make sure you always have supplies as well as treating yourself to some fantastic curated products once a month. I really felt this box is good value which cannot be said for all subscription boxes. Also Pink Parcel currently have some limited edition t-shirts on their website in which £5 from each sale is donated to Bloody Good Period - an organisation that supplies period essentials to refugees and asylum seekers, so do check them out.



Thanks to Pink Parcel for providing me with a box to try out - Words and thoughts 100% my own

Lion & Pheasant Townhouse Hotel Review - Shrewsbury

22/03/2018

Lion and Pheasant


If your a regular reader of my blog you may already know we recently spent a weekend in the beautiful medieval English town of Shrewsbury and stayed at the wonderful boutique style hotel Lion & Pheasant located on the Wyle Cop right next to the English bridge in a 16th building full with original features combined with a tasteful modern refresh. The location couldn't of been better as we could walk to all the main sites as well as being only moments away from the River Severn and is perfect for a weekend break. I wanted to share more about this place as it's personally somewhere we would recommend.

In the main building they have selection of single and double rooms, some with roll top baths and all with breakfast. Just outside is a converted stable block which has been turned into a two bedroom self catering accommodation and was to be our home and is perfect for a family or group looking for a little sanctuary right in the heart of the town. The two large bedrooms are both en-suite, one with a double bed and the other with two spacious single beds. Upstairs is a large open planned living and dining space which flows nicely into the kitchen, this space has been done really with natural light flooding in from the skylight and large windows. I love the simple but chic minimalist interior with a touch of Scandinavian influence.

The stable block has everything you need to be comfortable for a few days from a washing machine to a fully equipped kitchen and large dining table. We didn't actually make use of the self catering except to make a quick cup of coffee as we dinned at The Armoury in the evening and then the next day enjoyed a delicious breakfast in the main part of the hotel. 

The breakfast room is full of original features with large timber exposed beams and has a wonderful cosy feeling making is a unique way to start the day. There is a light continental selection or you can pick from the simple but well put together cooked menu, I went for the eggs Florentine which was perfection with the Cafeteria while the boys had porridge and pastries with some fresh orange juice.

Downstairs in the main building is also the bar and restaurant which is full of cosy nooks, large wooden tables and places to socialise in the stylish surroundings. As we visited during the end of winter it was still pretty chilly but there is a lovely garden courtyard which in the warmer months is the perfect place for a cocktail and some al-fresco eating. 

We really enjoyed our stay at The Lion and Pheasant and I would recommend it both to families and we felt very welcome and the staff were both friendly and efficient. Saying that this place is also the perfect spot for a couple child-free break as Shrewsbury is such a historically rich town with plenty of quaint pubs and independent boutiques it's great for weekend away both with the kids and without.

A Weekend in Shrewsbury

18/03/2018

Family Travel


We were recently invited by Original Shrewsbury to come and spend a weekend exploring this quaint English town on the River Severn, I was really excited as it's been somewhere I have passed through many times on our travels from Cardiff up north but had never had the chance to stop and explore. Even more exciting was that our visit was during the Darwin Festival, with so many fantastic pop-up events happening across this town as Charles Darwin is one of the most notable residents of Shrewsbury and one of the most important thinkers of our time, it made the visit that much more interesting.

The drive from South Wales was smooth and we made good time arriving well before our planned river cruise on The Sabrina which takes you along the River Severn and gives you the chance to see Shrewsbury from a different perspective and is great for families as my boys throughly enjoyed the experience. The staff on the boats were fantastic and ran a simple table service of hot drinks, wine and nibbles. They run throughout Spring to early Autumn and also have themed trips and ours came with a Darwin twist as a historian joined us to offer up some interesting facts about the Darwin and his life story.

The boat cruise was the perfect way to start our trip and despite it being pretty nippy the sunshine was out so after checking into the very chic Lion & Pheasant Townhouse Hotel (separate review coming) we headed straight back out to explore this medieval town. I am a lover of architecture and interiors and Shrewsbury is a dream for that with so many original Tudor and timber framed houses and over 660 listed buildings! One of these beautiful buildings is the Music Hall next to the Old Market Hall and houses Shrewsbury's Museum and Art Gallery.

One of the pop-up exhibitions currently running at the museum until the 15th April is "A Journey through history in Lego" and as my boys love Lego is was an obvious decision to check this out and it was such a fun and interactive exhibition with some real lego masterpieces on display as well as opportunities for children to get creative with Lego, I recommend checking it out if your in the area. We also explored the more permanent exhibitions and took part in the fun Maximo Mouse trail and Tudor Gallery which had a real life knight and Squire taking the kids through all the different kinds of chain mail and amour they wore.

After a culture filled day we headed back to the boutique hotel and our accommodation which was self contained in a converted stable and fantastic as it offered up tons of space with two double bedrooms and a large open planned living room and kitchen. We didn't really take advantage of the self catering facilities as we were off for a meal at The Armoury, a vibrant city style pub housed in a stunning Georgian building over looking the River Severn. I often get a little nervous about taking the kids somewhere new that is as nice as The Armoury but there really wasn't anything to worry about as it's really family friendly but doesn't compromise on a stylish interior and fresh and modern menu. I decided to have a slightly lighter main of portobello mushrooms, spinach and Shropshire blue cheese on toasted sourdough bread and it was one of the most delicious dishes I have had all year, I paired this up with a mixed salad and a glass of Prosecco for the perfect evening meal.

After what was a pretty action packed day we settle down for the night before another day in Shrewsbury. The next morning we enjoyed a breakfast in the main part of the hotel and my eggs florentine really hit the spot. As the hotel was near the Shrewsbury Abbey we thought we would take a morning stroll across The English Bridge and see if we could go inside. Even though we are not religious in any way you cannot help but be taken by the abbey with it's impressive interior, stained glass windows and large organ. The Abbey is also steeped in history including the burial of one of William the Conquerors principal counsellors Roger de Montgomerie.

Shrewsbury Library


As we came to Shrewbury for The Darwin Festival we also wanted to make sure to find the statue of the man himself before leaving. It's located outside the impressive Library and opposite Shrewsbury Castle and Regimental Museum which were unfortunately closed but the kids still enjoyed running around the castle gates. After a spot of lunch we decided to head back home but easily could of spent another day in this beautiful town as there was still plenty to see and do such as The Quarry which is an open parkland with The Dingle, a sunken garden designed by famed Gardner Percy Thrower as well as the original town wall and tower but thats whats great about staycations in the UK there is just so much see and do and you can always go back and revisit somewhere which I am sure we will do with Shrewsbury.

Tips for keeping on top of home repairs

4 comments
beautiful door


When you buy a home, you mainly think about keeping up with the mortgage payments, paying your bills and ensuring that your home is neat, clean, and organised. However, there is another aspect that you should not forget—the time, labor, and cost necessary to stay on top of different home maintenance and repair projects, some of which should be done in certain seasons.

Unless something breaks down, it's easy enough to postpone maintenance issues. Since these tasks can often be done later, you end up either forgetting about them or procrastinating, waiting for a more convenient time to get around to doing them, especially if the thought causes financial stress.

Besides tending to forget or postpone home repairs, another mistake homeowners often make is trying to save costs by tackling projects themselves that should be done by experts. Take window replacement, for example. If you need to install new windows, this is always something that is better done by experts rather than referencing DIY home repair tips on Google. The best thing to do is look for a local company that has good customer reviews and do your research, look for AAMA-Certified Master Window Installers who do Window Replacements in Houston then to try to do it yourself. Not only will you get the best installation results at affordable prices, but you'll also make better choices when it comes to replacement window brands. For instance, you'll get more options when it comes to materials or colours.


natural light



Still, not everything requires expertise and here is a checklist to stay on top of home repairs that you can easily do yourself or take care of with the help of a local handyman.

A General Home Inspection Checklist:

Every month, quarterly, or biannually, you should perform the following inspections to stay on top of maintenance issues

Inspect kitchen sink disposals. One simple trick is to freeze vinegar in an ice cube tray. Once you put them in the disposal, it not only freshens them out but will also sharpen the blades.

Test your various home safety detectors, like smoke detectors and carbon dioxide detectors. This is really important and will only take a few minutes, knowing your detectors are working properly will really give you peace of mind. If you have an electric garage door you also need to check that all the sensors and electrics are in good working order so no accidents can happen.

Keep on top of your plumping, for instance, if you have unused spaces, like basements or guest bathrooms, run the water in the faucets and flush the toilets. This simple maintenance measure will prevent grime from building up in your water system. Another thing to do is to take steps to deal with any hard water buildup issues you might come across.

A Seasonal Maintenance Checklist

Here is a basic checklist for maintenance issues associated with seasonal changes:

Spring: Do "Spring cleaning" in Spring because the exterior of the house will have been affected by the cold and damp of winter and the heat and humidity of summer. This, for example, is a good time to clean out gutters, as well as to see if any paint has chipped or any sidings have been damaged by the snow and ice of the winter.

Summer: This is a good time to mot your home. For instance, check the roof, drains, gutters, insulation, windows, boilers, fences, and chimney. In other words, the outdoor stuff.

Autumn: Now is the time you should be wrapping up all the cleanup and repair projects you initiated in summer and start getting your winter prep underway. Making sure your gutters are clean around this time is also important as you don't want to go into winter with potential issues. If you go to check this and find you need assistance, make sure to look for a service that offers Gutter Cleaning Buffalo way, or gutter cleaning wherever you are based, to get any issues addressed. 

Winter: This is the season to focus on interior projects, usually things that you may not have got around to earlier in the year, like building shelves and catching up on small painting projects. You also want to be on the lookout for icicles and ice dams and to de-ice where necessary. 
To-Do Lists & Calendars

Since there is a lot to be done through the course of the year, it's easy to quickly fall behind, forget, or just give up on trying to keep up. One solution to stop feeling overwhelmed by all your chores is to have a running list of things that you need to do, as well as a calendar to schedule the best available times to get to them. You can do this either on a spreadsheet or just with pen and paper; the main thing is just to be organized and consistent.

Choosing a home to fit your needs.

17/03/2018

2 comments



Whether you have been living in your home for years or are doing up a project or even building your own home you will have a finish product in mind. We naturally tailor our homes to fit our current needs and having lived with room mates, on my own, in a relationship and as a mother to two young boys the types of homes I've lived in have certainly changed over the years and here are a few

Twenties

Whether your studying at University or have your first proper job an apartment is usually the best bet especially when your busy working and socialising. While a house may seem like a good idea it can often be more work than you bargain for so an apartment means less stress and more time to do the things you enjoy, plus they also make great investments should you decided to buy instead of rent. The great thing about apartments is that they can also adapt with your needs, while you may share as a student, later on you may decided to live on your own or its might be your first home you shared with your future partner. Your tastes may also develop over this time and apartments are a great base to explore your interior style. 




Thirties

Around your thirties is usually the time you are starting to settle down whether that be in a relationship or just progressing with work, you may be thinking about purchasing your own home or perhaps you are a digital millennial working from home and now require more space for an office. Your needs by this point may have changed from your twenties, perhaps you have children (or are planning to too) and want a garden as well as more bedroom space a nursery or guests staying over. Of course this isn't always the case but you may be looking for a more grown up space and even if your staying in the same home you may find yourself redesigning your space and move away from your student days in style. 

Forties

By this point if you have expanded your family you may be looking to either move to a larger home or extended your own. There are many ways to make your current properly feel more spacious and creating more floor space by extending the kitchen with a stylish conservatory or you could go up into your loft space and create another bedroom in the eaves, both of these options are also very good investments and usually aways increase the value of your home.




Fifties & Sixties

Your children may be getting ready to leave the nest to start their own adventure which means you could be looking at having a lot more space all of a sudden. You may want to take up a hobby or develop a small business from home or just free up more rooms for visiting friends and family and even perhaps grandchildren. Now is the time to really enjoy your home, relax, or perhaps do some renovations others may feel it might be time to downsizes. 

Seventies plus

As we are living longer than ever and with most of us trying to stay healthy and live in our own homes as we get older a few changes may need to be made to make sure this is possible. You may decide to downsize to something more manageable or adapt your current home to make it "age proof" that allows you to stay active and able while stay safe. This can be done by putting down slip-resistant floors in places like the bathroom and kitchen and if you feel like your mobility is becoming a bit of an issue grab bars could be the next step as well as choosing to choosing to install residential home elevators in two-story homes is a great way to safely use the upper floor. 

As with everything in our life as we age our needs change and style develops as will the homes we live in. It's not to say you cannot find that forever home early one, with so many options and being able to extend most homes in one way may mean you can adapt yours along the way.

Style - Putting Your Best Foot Forward

5 comments



When you're attending a special event or social gathering most of us want to look and feel good in what we are wearing no matter what our personal style is. Putting together an outfit together that makes you feel comfortable and positive about yourself whether for a night on the town, a get-together with friends or even a nice couple's dinner date often helps to improve the whole experience. While like most people wearing sweats and trainers at home is great it's possibly not the way we want to present ourselves when we are out and about at a social gathering or even networking event.

One of my favourite accessories when it comes to putting an outfit together is a good pair of shoes as they often set the tone for what you are trying to accomplish with your personal style choices. Whether you are going for fun and playful, classic and elegant, or even making the best choices for work, shoes make the ensemble. In this post, I will discuss the importance of shoes in complementing your outfit.

Tricks for Choosing the Right Shoes

Choosing the right shoes to accentuate whatever you are wearing is easier said than done. One cannot simply rush to their closet and grab the first thing one see, instead, a little thought must go into the decision. When it comes to ensuring you make a great choice there are a few tricks to keep in mind. Colour is key when picking out your shoes. If you are worried about having too much of one colour, or accidentally mismatching, go with variety. Having a variety of colours, often going slightly darker for your shoes, is a great way to capture attention, while not going overboard on one colour concept. Mixing patterns is also a way to add a bit of style while keeping things fresh. This mashup allows you to refrain from having too much of a good thing while allowing you to keep your styling choices intact.

Boots Boots Boots

Boots for many women are a wardrobe staple as they can cross over from one season to another and can be paired up with skinny jeans for a Casula bit chic look. From ankle boots to knee-high and now even cowgirl boots are on the rise. These types of boots have become a staple to those who want to show their inner hometown girl, while still staying on top of the latest fashion trends. With several different styles to choose from, you will find yourself with an endless array of options that are sure to fit any kind of occasion from a girls night out or a family trip somewhere. 




Stylish Sandals

Have you noticed, especially in the warmer months of the year, the rise of cute, attention-grabbing sandals? If not, you should take a closer look. When the weather turns warmer, it is time to bring attention to our feet. Grabbing a great manicure and then choosing several great pairs of shoes to wear for all summertime occasions is the start of several months of foot fashion. Many women have started completing their summer looks with shoes and sandals that bring a bit of bling into their style. With everything from glitter shoes, to bejewelled sandals, all the way down to flip-flops with cute accessories such as flowers, trinkets, and even character designs, you cannot go wrong when it comes to choosing a stand-out shoe for summer wear. Show off those feet and capture attention with the perfect amount of bling!

Keeping your shoes in good condition

There is no point in having nice shoes if you don't look after them - of course, they are meant to be worn and enjoyed but storing them and cleaning them correctly means they will last much longer. There are a variety of tips and products that you can use on your shoes, some will be suitable for washing, others not, depending on the fabric or if they are leather or suede. Canvas shoes, for example, can be brought to life in a variety of ways and you can learn more about it online at The Laundress blog.



When the time comes to choose shoes for whatever activity you are planning, keep in mind how important they truly are. Make a statement with your shoes and in most cases, the attention you desire will find its way to you.

Oddsocks Bar & Kitchen Lunch review

15/03/2018

Lunch date


I had the chance to visit the recently opened Oddsocks Bar and Kitchen, a part of the Jurys Inn just off Queen street. It's always great seeing new eateries pop up in Cardiff and the first thing that stood out when walking in, besides the friendly welcome was the stylish and refreshed interior with wood panelling and variety of different seating areas and full of natural light making it the perfect spot to sit, relax and people watch through the large windows.


Wood panelling



I really like the unfussy and fairly simple menu that offers something for both vegetarians and meat-eaters and even though I didn't have the kids with me, they also have a Little Socks menu for the younger diner. We decided to share a starter to get things going and went for some cheese Nachos with sour-cream, jalapeƱos and salsa and the portion was surprisingly big and perfect for sharing, you could also add Chilli to them and make it more of a meal than a snack. The presentation was really good too with separate dishes for the toppings and the Nachos being served on fun printed newspaper.


Oddsocks Cardiff


For the main I decided to try out the vegetarian Mezze salad topped with Avocado and it was delicious, really fresh and with the feta cheese and new potatoes added into the mix it was very filling, in fact I just couldn't finish it.


Avocado topped salad


Even though I was really full we decided to try one of the delicious desserts and went for the cheesecake with raspberry coulis, it was surprisingly light and and not overly rich which was perfect to finish the meal. The atmosphere during the lunch was really relaxing and is certainly somewhere we would re-visit. You don't have to be a guest at the hotel to enjoy Oddsocks, in fact it's very much its own entity. A lovely addition to the every growing foodie scene in Cardiff.
