Our First Home

“Not very romantic, is it?… spending our Valentine’s evening with a mortgage adviser sandwiched between us…” I exclaimed, only half joking.

“I am doing something that shows I want to spend the rest of my life with you” he replied, “what could be more romantic?”

I melted – how could I argue with that?

My role, as a Content Editor at Zazzle Media, means that I am immersed in content all day, everyday and, like most, outside of that I spend hours scrolling through social media and reading anything I can get my hands on.

Galentine’s Day

The 13th of February simply used to be the day before Valentine’s Day – the day when we rushed out to get a heart-covered card that would express exactly how much we loved someone, whether that be openly or from afar. Over the last few years, however, it has become better known as Galentine’s Day.

6 Amazing Staffordshire Bull Terriers

You couldn’t be further from the truth. Did you know that they are one of the only breeds to be described as a ‘Nanny dog’ by The Kennel Club because of how good they are with children and they actually come below Labradors on the list of dogs most likely to bite?

2016: the worst year ever?

I think it is safe to say that many of us were happy to bid good riddance to last year.

Who knew, as we went into 2016 with our inspirational resolutions, that we would look backwards on 12 months that saw the world lose so many icons – Prince, Bowie, George Michael and Muhammad Ali – to name a few – alongside so many more atrocious terrorist attacks. And, that we would be heading into 2017, with the promise of Donald Trump taking over the most powerful job in the world and Brexit becoming a reality.
