• My House Plants // Lifestyle

    I have a lot of house plants, I am of course not ashamed of this fact because frankly, I love them dearly and they have brought me nothing but calm and happiness as I water them each week. My little obsession with beautiful house plants started with the desperate need to own a monstera, I had seen many people mention about these plant online and after much searching, I headed to the nearest garden centre, Van Hages, which I will be honest isn’t my closest but we was on our way there anyway, to browse house plants and purchase Monty the Monstera Deliciosa! While there I also picked myself up a beautiful String of Hearts which is a hanging plant and a Snake Plant. Wonderfully at this present time Monty and the Snake Plant (sounds like a band name!) are thriving and enjoying time in my home, I have repotted Monty twice since I first got him and he has just kept growing and growing, my Snake Plant is pretty low maintenance, giving that it is a desert style plant, which then makes it less likely to murder, unfortunately the string of hearts died a slow death, I tried watering… View Post

    My 7 Self-Care Essentials // Lifestyle

    Self-care at the best of times is an important aspect of life, we all go through stressful moments but more so at the minute with COVID-19 taking over the headlines and causing fear pretty much everywhere. And it got me not only thinking about my own self-care but what it is exactly that I do to help myself during these times of much needed self time. Along with the current situation, I am also a single mother of three children, who now I am having to home school and I can honestly tell you its been a tough time and I’ve relied on plenty of self-care products and activities that have really helped me through my day to day life. So thats what I am going to share with you today, a lot of these items are creams or moisturisers that I apply at the end or beginning of the day but they’ve all helped in their own little way to keep my calm, cool and allowed me time to myself to care for myself. Self-care Essentials Lush Sleepy ~ I have been using this for ages now, since I discovered it in fact, its great for tired mums and the… View Post

    Plenty of Fish, but I prefer Me // Lifestyle

    What can I say? life has been unstable for a while now, since October 2018 for that matter but I won’t get to much into that part of this post, Back in January 2019 I downloaded plenty of fish, for those who don’t know plenty of fish is a dating app, I mainly downloaded it because part of me hoped that if my ex saw me with someone else he might want me back, but also I wanted to meet new people. I met and chatted with a few people, did meet someone who I ended up dating for 9 months but as it turns out, he was less interested in being a couple and didn’t even want a label, in the end he dumped me via text and I never spoke to him again. I then downloaded the app back and started messaging people again, once again I met someone on there, met up and it felt good, for a while, we met family and met friends and things felt okay for a little while until he said those three words a little sooner than I preferred, I didn’t feel it back but regrettably, I said it back, I… View Post

    February Monthly Favourites // Lifestyle

    I always make a comment that these months fly by, February did thats for sure and not because it only had 29 days, it just felt like a busy mad month that I didn’t get time to do anything I had planned to do. Last months favourites got me inspired to cook and create. This months favourites are all about what I decorate my home with, not that I am going with themes or anything its just I am very aware that this month all my favourites are from my home decor. ** H o u s e  P l a n t s – I have developed a thing for house plants, I have a smallish collection of them around my home and my personal favourite is my monstera which sits proudly on my windowsill, it has been attacked by a small cat but other than that its thrived and is growing new leafs frequently. I also have two orchids which I have yet to murder, a snake plant that doesn’t require any care whatsoever (the perfect plant for plant murderers) and this other plant that I got from Lazy Flora which I am not entirely sure what it is but… View Post

    Goals for March 2020 // Lifestyle

    What can I say? I am a terrible person when it comes to completeting goals. February came and went and I barely had time for anything besides being a parent and house work, which is my daily life in general but I still managed to read some books (I have a review coming up soon of one) and while my DA didn’t go up it didn’t go down either so I am considering that a win win. March is a little bit more of a hectic month with mothers day, various PTA events that I am helping with and my sons 10th birthday so you can imagine that there isnt much room for Sarah time this month but no matter. Here are my goals for March 2020 W o r k  m o r e  o n  m y  b l o g – Simple and easy, i’ve slacked a little bit with this but I have got so many ideas to share with you, I am forever writing down post ideas and I want to do more personal posts and information posts along with my usual reviews and adventures, hopefully I can find time to do this.
