SIGHTINGS FROM NOVEMBER – LINKY

I recently discovered the lovely Caitylis’ blog, her photography skills are incredible and she is currently pregnant with her first baby- so exciting! She started a ‘Linky’ where you share your favourite photographs from the previous month and I absolutely love this idea. One of my favourite things about my blog is being able to look back on past events, feelings and memories! Joining in was a no brainer. I also think it is interesting to share more about the story behind the pictures I share on Instagram. I hope you enjoy hearing about mine!

FIVE TIPS FOR STARTING A BLOG

It feels very odd writing this post because to be honest I am still very much a blogging novice! I have had my blog for around five months now and I have plenty of things I want to change so I am definitely not an expert. However, I asked on Instagram if this post would be useful and the resounding answer was yes! I could write a giant post with everything I have learnt so far but I have narrowed it down to the five tips I think are most important. At the end of this post I have also linked any sites I use regularly for my blog as well as other posts that have really helped me along the way.

With the average cost of a wedding in the UK at an all time high of around twenty-seven-thousand pounds (Independent, September 2017), I thought it might be useful to share some of the tips I used when planning my own wedding costing less than half of that. This is a very different sort of post for me so I would love to know whether or not this interests you. Although it was stressful at times, I absolutely loved planning our wedding and I hope these tips make the process more enjoyable for you. Or if you are reading this because you love a good nosy at a wedding, I am right there with you!

As you will probably know if you follow me on Instagram (and if you don’t, come on over and say hello!), we recently went on a family weekend away to Center Parcs, Longleat Forest. We have visited Center Parcs quite a few times over the years and it is one of our favourite places (besides St Ives) for a UK based getaway. Of course these days it is a bit different and we have different priorities and preferences. As well as being great to look back on, I thought this post might be useful if you have never been before and are considering going. Before we took Freddie I found myself frantically googling ‘Center Parcs with baby’ so I hope this post helps you if you are in a similar situation. I know Center Parcs can get some mixed reviews, most notably that is is expensive but we have found that it is very much what you make of it and it is incredibly family friendly which is the main reason why we booked another weekend so soon after the previous one!  View Full Post
