My blog is five years old.
If it were a child, he/she would be starting school.
I don’t know about you, but that’s flipping crazy.
My blog actually turned five on 1st July, but for some reason, it’s taken me over a month to sit down to write this.
I wanted to talk about what I’ve learnt but in all honesty, we’d be here all day so I’ve narrowed it down to five.

This weekend, I felt the urge to bake.
I can’t remember the last time I made a cake or a batch of cookies.
These ones are unbelievably good so naturally, I wanted to share with you all.

I’m currently in a full time job which I love. The marketing team are lovely, I’ve settled in nicely and I get into the office at 8am every day so I can have the chance to read.
But my blog is suffering.
That’s a sentence I never thought I’d say.
I’ve been blogging since 2nd July 2012 and I’ve always had content, even when I was travelling but things have changed.
The opportunities have stopped rolling in, my ideas have dried up and I’m finding myself comparing my blog to others.

Travelling with a laptop can be a bit of a nightmare.
It’s become custom to take your laptop on board with you; either to work, watch a film or simply because you don’t want it being damaged in your suitcase.
When Knomo got in touch with me about their Copenhagen briefcase, I knew it would be perfect for my laptop to travel with.

What are you doing on the 23rd – 25th June?
Stuck in the office 9-5?
Well, that’s perfect as Marie Curie are doing another incredible fundraiser which is all about baking cakes and drinking tea, all for a great cause.

Leeds has never really been on my to-see list.
I follow quite a few bloggers from the area and I always enjoy seeing their photos and blog posts about the city, but I’ve never thought, “ooh, I must go there.”
I’m was actually disappointed by what Leeds had to offer and I never thought I’d say that about anywhere in the UK.
It was all down to a mixture of the crap weather, a slight car crash (nothing major, just an idiot who reversed into us at a red light) and the fact that there wasn’t a great deal to see. Nevertheless, I still wanted to share a few pictures that I took..
“Homeware is my weakness.”
Said by every blogger on the planet.
We can’t help it. We can’t help buying it. They make great props.
Especially when the products are long lasting, like the ones from Feather & Black.
When their lovely PR team got in touch and asked if I’d like to review some of their pieces, I took a look on their website and was instantly in love with pretty much every single item.
And then they said I could choose what I wanted.
Is this real life? Is this a fantasy?
10 points to Gryffindor if you can name that song.

We all know that I’m organised.
I’m actually writing this on the 6th April…
And it’s all because I have a flipping amazing diary which is perfect for life + blog.
I ordered a Busy B diary (from their section on Amazon) at the beginning of January after being undecided on one that I liked for ages. I knew that I’d want something which would make planning my life and my blog a lot easier and smoother.
This is the diary for bloggers.

Stags are one of my favourite animals.
My blog name kinda gives that away.
I’ve wanted a piece of artwork in my bedroom for quite some time, but I wasn’t 100% sure what I wanted so when I spotted a Daisy Maison stall at a home show in Manchester towards the end of last year, I knew I’d found the perfect piece.

I love taking photographs.
Whether it’s on crappy old iPhone4 (I’m in serious need of an upgrade!) or an a proper snazzy camera, I’m just a little bit snap happy.
When Bidvine got in touch and asked if they’d like to collaborate, I thought why not? Everyone can do with some professional help from time to time and there’s nothing better than knowing you’re going to get an amazing service.
