Autumn is officially here.
Therefore, it’s perfectly acceptable to light all the Autumnal candles.
I dragged the Mr to the mothership that is HomeSense in Aintree a few weeks ago as I was trying to hunt down the perfect Autumn candle and I think I’ve found it.
I’m not a big fan of cinnamon, apple or pumpkin scents at all.
I’m much more of a citrus fruit kinda gal.

I love cute homeware items.
Every time I walk into Primark, New Look, H&M, Debenhams, ASDA, Tesco (and many, many more), I need to go and look at the homeware.
Just in case I want to pick anything up.
Because you know, homeware is cute and it’s essential.

Hi, my name is Emma.
I’m 26 years old and I’m learning to drive.
The norm in the UK is that when you reach the age of 17, you start driving lessons. Usually, you pay for them from your part time job and sometimes, your parents will always help you as well. If you pass by the time you’re 18, you may even get a car.
I remember being 18 and seeing majority of my friends posting photos of their new car and how excited they were that they could finally go to McDonalds at any time.
Driving gives you freedom and independence.
*Before I properly get into this long post, if you’d like to read about my weekly driving lessons, I talk about them over on my Sunday posts.

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.
