6 Umbrellas to Beat the Rain Blues

The grey clouds have started to creep their way into towns and cities across the UK, and while many people dislike the rain, I love it! There’s nothing better to me than being able to stand outside while it’s pelting down with rain, or watching a thunder and lightning storm. One of the other reasons I love the rain is it gives me a great excuse to hit the shops and take a look at some of the new, exciting (and sometimes unusual) designs for UMBRELLAS!

Interior Trends to Love this Autumn #AW17

I find Autumn the perfect time to refresh my house and bring in all the colours, fabrics and pieces that will make my home feel nice and cosy over the colder months.

Social Media For Bloggers

Whether you treat your blog as a hobby, something that you want to be more professional or as your career, social media is a vital part of growing and promoting any blog. There are so many social media accounts from blogs across the world that I despair at, from those accounts who have ‘blogger’ in their bios but nowhere do they put a link to their actual blog, to bloggers who I get the same message from three times thanking me for following them from different automated services!

Low Fat Penne Bolognese | Recipe

So, Summer isn’t generally associated with food such as Bolognese in the UK, but I can’t help when I think of warm weather and perfect food combinations, of my parents talking about their holiday to Italy where pasta was eaten all the time, and vegetables were in abundance – certainly sounds good to me!

I thought, therefore, that I would share my Summer version of my Penne Bolognese with you, which used vegetables such as leeks rather than celery and mustard seeds as a spice to give it a kick. By using fresh vegetables, extra lean mince, and making my own sauce rather …
