What Hannah Did Next


5 books I’ve read this year…

You wouldn't know it these days but I love reading and would happily hang out in book shops if I had the chance (anyone else like the smell of brand new books?).  Not only are they great for a little bit of escapism but I feel that they're good for my soul and with each

Top 30 things that Brits are likely to forget

Do you ever find yourself wondering how on earth you manage to get through some days in one piece? I’m sure most modern mums have found themselves overwhelmed at some point or another. I certainly have. I’m not talking about baby burnout since my kids are school age now, rather that classic angst feeling, when

Say Goodbye to Smoking, Once and For All

I know I don’t need to tell you why smoking is bad – we’ve all seen the shocking ads and the warning pictures on the packets. But anyway, that’s not what this post is about. I wanted to share some tried-and-tested methods to kick the habit once and for all, without any of the pressure

My water confidence and fitness

As you may already be aware, I've been attempting a bit of a fitness overhaul at the moment. However, one recurrent theme seems to stay with me and that is the fact that getting fit can be so boring. Not only can it be boring but it's also a lot of hard work and the

Flamingo love with Gingersnap

Neon lights always add something to a room and Gingersnap have a great choice of lamps to brighten up your home. If I were to choose my favourite neon shade, then it would without a doubt be pink! It looks the most effective with it's lovely warm glow and naturally works perfectly with flamingoes. I

Boxie subscription box

The Value of Movement with Matalan

We all know that keeping active helps to keep our bodies and minds healthy but it's not always easy to find something that works for you and your lifestyle. I'm the first to hold my hand up and admit that I'm not terribly good when it comes to exercise. When I do start some form

Luxury pink sheepskin slippers for that hygge life

We're finally at the end of January and it feels like it's been a really long one! The majority of the days were fairly dark, often damp and pretty cold too. We've had the heating on, candles burning and the log burner roaring on those really frosty days. The cold makes me miserable and I'm

100 truths blogger tag

Being a nosey sort, I quite like to read people's 'truths', so when Sarah from Toby Goes Bananas was asking who wanted to be tagged in the latest tag doing the rounds, I thought I'd opt in. I know that a few people have left out questions from their list, but I'm happy to include

4 Tips to Get Your Tax Return Done in Time

It’s nearly that time of year again, when the tax return looms bigger with every passing day. Thousands of home business owners leave it till the last minute to file their return, causing themselves all kinds of stress. If this job is still on your back burner, now’s the time to turn up the heat

18 of my goals for 2018

Well hello January and all of your dreariness. Yep, it's that time of the year again where Christmas has just suddenly departed and we're left facing the month that is generally despised. However, with that prospect comes talk of what our 'New Year' will hopefully hold for us and what we really want to do

Amara last minute gifts for women – under £50

How quickly has Christmas crept up on us this year? Is it just me that felt that I had a little more time to get things prepared? Luckily for me, I am prepared and bar a little wrapping, an online food shop to complete and the turkey collection, I'm good to go. I've done my

Reviving our carpets with Rug Doctor

At the moment, we live in a rented house that has carpets. We absolutely love it here and one of the first things that caught my eye when we viewed the property, was the gorgeous cream carpets throughout. Fast forward a year and we've realised that caring for light carpets with three children, is no

My top 5 pieces of Christmas sparkle

You've guessed it, this post is about all things sparkly for Christmas. I mean it's just got to be done hasn't it? If there is one time in the year that you can get away with wearing full on sequins, it will be December time when it's fully acceptable and expected. So here is my

What hygge means at Christmas

Now I don't claim to be an expert on hygge but I certainly have an invested interest in it. I mean I have a little book on what it's all about and I even know the correct pronunciation, even if I do forget from time to time. To those of you that still perhaps don't

Christmas crowd pleaser: Posh toiletries

I've pretty much got Christmas wrapped up for the children (bar the actual wrapping) and I feel somewhat relieved about that. Their main presents are sorted and I just have to think about rushing around like a loon for all of their fiddly stocking fillers...but that's just the small details and won't require too much

5 reasons you know it’s Christmas…

1. Everyone is walking around with their festive coffee cups and it's no longer a standard latte, it's now a gingerbread latte to follow on from pumpkin spice at Halloween. 2. It's all about the adverts on the tv and all the top stores are contending for the best advert that will melt the heart
