My Christmas wrapping theme | #jaidemas

You hear a lot of chat about how important Instagram themes are to people. Well, having a wrapping theme at Christmas time is just as important to me which, as you can see is very traditional.

Brown paper has always been up there with what I feel is the nicest way to wrap presents. There's just something about it that looks good (and very Pinterest worthy). One year I actually bought parcel paper from Wilko and parcel tags and the overall look was nice, but felt there was something missing. Then I stumbled across these beauties in Asda and immediately knew that little red trees on my brown paper was what I was missing. It's just perfect and great quality paper too, actually can't stand thin wrapping paper that just feels cheap and just never looks nice. This holds shape well, looks festive and traditional with am up to date twist.

Even though I like the brown wrapping paper, a lot, I felt I needed something to break it up whilst remaining with the traditional theme I had going on. Knowing that either red or green would go well, I grabbed a few rolls of the HoHoHo wrapping paper which, correct me if you disagree, but it looks very traditional Coca Cola esk. I thought it really complimented the brown paper and helps the white ribbon to really stand out.


For those people I know I'll end up getting a nice tipple for, I tend to head straight to TKMaxx for gift bags. They always have a good selection of individual ones as I like everyone to have a different one. You've got to be careful when buying separate bags as it can creep up on you and be a little bit of a shock. 

Every year I find myself sticking to the brown paper thing, however, adding new elements to it every time the festive season is with us. 

I'd love to know if you have a wrapping theme and what your theme is this year.

  1. I absolutely adore brown paper presents! It's something I'm thinkin about doing next year as I didn't want to do anything Pinterest worthy this year as I've got too much going on with my blog anyway with so much different content that's not Christmassy whatsoever! Love This post for Jaidemas!

Dreamland For Spring/Summer 2019 - Press Trip

It's that time of year again, DREAMLAND is open for business! I get so many questions about Margate and DREAMLAND in particular, so why not do another post for you. 

As a South Kent girl through and through, this place has a special place in my heart. Full of nostalgia, and pride of what it's like now. 
You may or may know that I've actually created two blog posts already from DREAMLAND, but wanted to give you a little update on it. I also played around with my camera and a new setting so it's a bit of experimenting too haha. 
Shall we?

Lets get the disclaimer out the way if you didn't catch it in the top right corner. I was invited to the park on this day as press, so received a free wristband, food and drink tokens. I wasn't asked to create a blog post in any way, but I always like to as you guys like it and its such a fun place to photograph. 

Now on to DREAMLAND:
I can't describe how much fun I always have when I visit this place. On this day pictured, it was…

So here i am, back after what seems a life time. Since my last post so much has gone on and happened in my life that my blog didn't even cross my mind. Some of the issues were personal and boyfriend related which has been hard but i feel I'm back to myself again :)

I would like to say a massive thank you to all of you that have stuck around and have continued to follow me even though i have been absent for a while.

So my outfit is just me on a Saturday after teaching Ballet and decided to go shopping and spend money i don't have!!! A haul post will be up in the next couple of days I PROMISE.

mucho love

For The Love Of Cucumbers and Skincare

Good morning and happy National Cucumber Day!

I love cucumbers! There, I said it. I like to eat them, drink them in juices and smoothies, and even like them in my skincare routine.

Over the last couple of months I've really struggled with my skin. Getting hard lumps under the skin, and rash like breakouts that were super persistent and refused to die down. I thought about whether or not I was using too many different products and clogging up my skin, or it was just down to stress or something. All I knew was that I had to give something a go and hope for it to work it's magic on my problem skin as it was getting me down.

What a day to share my love of cucumbers and my love of the Yes To Cucumber range with you cuties. Make yourself a cheese (vegan cheese if you're like myself) and cucumber sandwich and take a read about a range you'll want try! 



It may shock you to see an entire range made with cucumbers, but it's actually a pretty amazing vegetable when it comes to yo…
