A Happier and Healthier 2016

 

As the clock struck midnight and took us into 2016 I didn’t make any New Years resolutions for the year because, lets face it, who keeps them? According to this post that looked back on 2014 or “the year I became an adult”, I planned to learn to cook and that definitely hasn’t happened yet…

Walking In My Sleep

 

I have been sleepwalking for as long as I can remember, and I am not alone. It is a relatively common thing to do, and according to research affects around 15% of children, whilst 30% of adults claim to have experienced sleepwalking at least once.

After writing a feature at work about a “A Sleepwalking Artist” – a guy who creates masterpieces in his sleep, which he sells for thousands (besides leaving paper and paint by my bed…) it got me thinking about my own sleepwalking experiences.

Baking for Macmillan Coffee Morning

Since my first attempt at baking cupcakes, I have becoming something of an “expert”. I have experimented with fillings and toppings and learnt that buttercream icing is actually incredibly easy to make (and I definitely could have done that here!) However, as that is all I could do, that is all I ever baked –  sticking to what I know, for fear of stepping out of my comfort zone and messing it up. However, after baking them on countless occasions I started to get bored and decided I needed a new challenge.

The Curse of Having a Baby Face

I am currently stuck in a place where I look like a child and often get treated as such but I’m actually (unfortunately) an adult.

I’m 27 – teetering on the edge of mid to late 20s (some say late, I like to think mid) and heading towards the slippery slope that will hurtle me towards 30 and actual, real, can’t escape it any longer – adulthood. HOW and when did this happen?

Barry M Speedy Nail Paint

The sun is poking through the clouds, Spring is in the air and dusting off the Summer wardrobe is in sight… aka the perfect time for pastel nails!

Barry M feature a wide variety of nail polish from matte to a high shine gelly in a whole spectrum of colours plus effects such as sequins and glitters, two tones and textured. But last month they introduced what we have all been waiting for, a Speedy Dry range! I have so many different Barry M nail varnishes that when I went in to Boots and saw a Speedy Quick Dry, I thought this could be the perfect addition to my collection and had to give it a try.
