A while ago, the lovely people at Mercure got in touch and asked if I fancied staying in their Brighton hotel with a plus one. Whilst I would have loved J to come with me, he wasn’t feeling up to it, so I knew that one of my best friends, Charlie, would be the perfect choice to come and check it out with me 😀
As she lives in London, we decided to make a day of it, shopping in Brighton first, before enjoying a complementary three course meal in the hotel’s restaurant, then relaxing in our room while doing some serious lazing around and TV watching!
As months go, August was pretty spectacular!! Not only was it my birthday but I had two whole weeks of annual leave and the weather was glorious 😀 😀
Natures Healthbox are a Brighton-based company who sell natural health, beauty and home goods. They have a wide range of gluten free products, chemical-free cleaning products and absolutely tons of natural make-up and skincare products!! They also sell CBD products, natural products for babies plus raw and superfoods!!
They got touch with me a while ago and asked if I wanted to try out some of their tea tree products and very kindly sent me a little gift set!
I know I’m a couple of weeks late, but did you know that 13th August was left-hander’s day? This the day when people like me can celebrate their left-handedness, the daily struggles we face and empathise with other left-handed folk about how shit it can be 😂😂😂😂
I can’t believe that I’ve been going to a personal trainer now for 6 months!! It still feels like a pretty unreal experience but I’ve been making the most of it at every session!!
Well there goes July 😬😬 We’re now thoroughly into August and it’s my birthday month. Woo!! I’ll be 35 so let’s mention that as little as possible 😂😂
Following on from parts one and two, I now have even more pins in my collection, oops!! I can’t seem to stop buying them! I mostly buy from the UK but occasionally branch out into buying from Europe. I tend not to buy them from the US as the postage usually costs the same, if not more, than the pins!!
When I was younger, I absolutely loved The Crystal Maze; especially the tasks where people had to solve cryptic clues to find the crystals 🙂 When escape rooms became popular, I vowed that I’d go and try some out, but I never got round to it 🙁
So when the lovely people at Handmade Mysteries got in touch and asked if I wanted to try out one of theirs, I jumped at the chance to give it a go!!
Holy smokes this post is up super late, isn’t it? I’ve been incredibly busy over the past couple of weeks with a lot of home admin bits to do, so I haven’t really had time to sit down and write or take photos 🙁
Sometimes life works out pretty great, doesn’t it? I met one of my oldest best friends, Charlie, on my first day at a new school (aged 14). We used to live really near each other and walked to school together most days.
When we were 16, she moved away, but we still kept in touch, writing letters to each other 🙂 She recently moved back to England, finding a place in London, which is the closest we’ve lived to each other for years!!
