A little personal touch

So I bought my laptop in October 2017 and for about 3 months it looked pretty boring on the outside.

For those wondering it’s an Asus Transformer Mini.

So according to my photo album in January 2018 I decided to jazz it up a bit with some stickers I’d found on Google and Pinterest.

It was very much based on social media, blogging, and of course Netflix.

I loved it but after 22 months it started to peel a little and it just didn’t look pretty to me anymore.

So I got some more self adhesive photo paper and this is what it looks like as of today

I love my chick flicks, music, sleep, YouTube, I own a cactus, love a good quote and my cute little niece is called Daisy so that’s why they are on there.

It’s nice to add a bit of character and a personal touch to things.

Get your creative juices going

I have over the last few weeks been trying to find something that can relax me and low and behold I could do it from the comfort of my Ipad.

So I already had a quite neat stylus pen I got a while ago so downloaded a few sketching apps such as Adobe sketch and procreate and just tried to let my creativity flow…

Here is what I have done so far

The last one is of my sister… She thought it was quite funny seeing herself in a sketch and said it was really good for a starter like me.

I hope to improve each time I draw.

Don’t ever shy away from trying something new as you never know if you like it if you don’t try it.

Open me when…

Ok, so i guess you have stumbled across something like this before on the net where you write a letter to your significant other to open at certain times in their life.

Well you know me i like do do things a bit differently so this is my DIY i’m setting myself and i’ll share the first letter with you in a min.

It’s writing letters to yourself. It’s not weird…its really taking care of you, and when you need that bit of guidance or to be perked up reach for that certain letter in your pack.

you can look at pinterest for inspiration or get it right from the heart. There is no right or wrong way.

So here is my first one…

You kind of get the jist of it right? It’s to pick you up when you need it the most.

It’ll be great if some of you decide to do this.

Thanks for stopping by

A Vision, A Dream, A Reality

You’ve all heard of vision boards… The board that you can make with all your dreams you want to come true.

Well I’ve been doing it a bit differently with this little beaut…


When I am chilling out on my bed and pinning on Pinterest like mad I decided why don’t I have a secret board of my visions in life so a few weeks ago I started it.

Today I decided to focus on my dream house if I was ever lucky enough to own / rent such a place and this is the 12 I chose out of the 50 odd that are on my board 🙈


I absolutely adore the colour pink so I would of course theme the house around my personality and that colour.

I couldn’t leave out the garden so I included that too.


Somewhere girly but also relaxing at the same time.
Whoever my other half was would have to accept my inner Elle Woods from Legally Blonde.

Apparently if you put your visions out there to the universe you shall have so there you go universe I would like this 🌸

Hope you’ve enjoyed reading.
Let me know if you have made vision boards/pages.

Inspirational DIY

If only our house wasn’t carpeted… Or maybe in my dream house I could do one of these DIYs on the stairs.

I love quotes and positivity and seeing these on Pinterest I thought I’d share incase any of you thought of doing something similar.

Some people may think this looks a bit naff but I think it’s really quirky.

Anyway my beauts Here’s to the weekend.

Lets plan for Jan

Hey, i hope you all had a lovely time over the new year.

So i thought for my first post of the year i would focus on planning as most of us have plans for the year however big they are.

So we have your standard one you would print out and fill in. These are ever so handy because if you mess up you can just print out another, or do it on your computer (no need to print)

If you want to be a bit more creative then a bullet journal is the one to go for as you can be as individual as you like. This is an example of one weekly spread you may want to.

Of course there’s nothing wrong with just having a notepad to keep all your plans in and writing the dates as you go along.

Lastly you’ve got a planner that’s got it all set out for you and all you got to do is put your plans in it’s designated area (this is mine) I’m going to talk through it at a later date as i think it’s fab.

I thought i would also include these 3 for the journaling lovers. Got to love a good 30 day challenge.

Hope you have fun answering these i know I’m going to

Trying something new

Stepping out of your comfort zone and trying something you don’t usually do. Theres fun to be had trying something new. (That was a little glimpse of my poetic self)

I have always been into writing and not been the artistic type. I have decided to try my hand at being creative in the shape of making things i find on Pinterest. Get my craft on.

Of course I’ll share my successes and failures with you all. I will be spending the next week on Pinterest making a board to work through. Then I’ll be getting some supplies in from Hobbycraft and The Range.

You are never too old to have a hobby and it is always great to share your journey too.
