Shooting outdoors has many different perks and one of them would be the natural backdrops that you can find all around you. In winter you’ll be more likely to get those beautiful snowy backgrounds. Blossom in spring is sure to make a stunning backdrop, Summer, […]
Here we are. Autumn has officially around the corner and how are you enjoying the autumnal vibes on the blog at the moment? I’m quite loving it myself, however, am already planning my Halloween re-vamp or October time. I’m hoping that this Autumn bucket list 2019 […]
Summer is almost, basically over. (23rd September – First day of Autumn) and I thought it would be nice to have a look back on what the summer brought for me this year. Not a lot if I’m completely honest but never the less I’m going to continue with the summer 2019 reflection.
At the start of the summer, I created a summer bucket list which you can go and read here if you’d like, whilst creating the list was great fun, I actually achieved very little on it. I only just managed to fit in a trip to the seaside and visited a wildlife park; that’s about it, but I did manage to do some things that weren’t on the bucket list at all like visiting Cadbury world and taking Stewart on his first outing to Tattershall Castle.
The weather here in the UK has been really bad this summer, it’s not really been a summer at all and we did get a few good days where we were able to get out and enjoy the sunshine, a few days where it’s been so hot you’re literally going to melt if you go outside and days where you’d think it had switched seasons overnight but thats the UK weather for you and something you’d think as Britons we’d be used to by now but nope, we still moan about it like it’s going to make a difference.
My pregnant body is thankful for the fact we haven’t had a consistent hot summer because honestly, I don’t think that it could have coped with it so to say that I am happy the colder months are coming is an understatement. The last half of my pregnancy will be over the colder months of the year.
Summer Reflection 2019
It’s been a special summer never the less though as it was my last one as a solo person. Next summer I will have a mini-me to go on thousands of adventures with and I can not wait to be able to get my imagination flowing with my very own little person.
How was your summer? Link me to your summer posts or comment just what you’ve been up to and stay tuned for my Autumn bucket list that will be linked here when it’s live.
Thank you for reading.
Welcome back to another installment of the Pregnancy Journals weeks 17-21. I can’t help but feel like this installment might be a little short and sweet but that’s because i’ve really not had to struggle with much symptoms and things in relation to pregnancy. I’m […]
Autumn is just around the corner and what better way to celebrate one of the most loved seasons ever than buying an Autumn wreath for either your front door or if you really want to go to town, every door in your house. I’ve put together a list of some of my favourite Autumn Wreaths this year that I think are ESSENTIAL to make your house as festive as possible. So let’s get shopping!
Autumn Wreaths You NEED This Season
Autumn is such a beautiful time of year, almost on par with the beautiful visions of spring, but with autumn comes the countdown to the most wonderful time of the year as well, Halloween holidays, Bonfire Night and Christmas. It wasn’t until a couple of years ago that I fully came to terms with the fact that I didn’t have to wait till November to decorate my house for Christmas and make it all super cozy. It was about 4 years ago now that I started then decorating for Halloween and then, a couple of years ago expanded that to kitting my house out for Autumn. Doing this meant I got to shove up a ton of white twinkly lights, candles, and Autumn decor and make my home into the coziest little nook to help fight away that SAD syndrome so many of us get when the nights longer and darker.
The wreath has significant meaning for the season. It’s circular shape represents eternity, for it has no beginning and no end. From a christian religious perspective, it represents an unending circle of life. The evergreen, most frequently used in making wreathes, symbolizes growth and everlasting life. – holidayinsights
So here are my 5 Autumn Wreaths I think you NEED this season;
All wreaths are made of artificial pumpkins, berries, maple leaves and twigs, which symbolizes the great harvest of life. Vibrant and beautiful decor for your door, mantel or wall.

Wow, how are we already at the end of August already? This Month has been a good one, it’s flown by and I can’t believe that were a skip away from September, the season that is the home to the first day of Autumn. We’re in the back end of the year now and before we know it we will all be wishing each other a happy new year, but let’s not get ahead of ourselves too quickly.
Things That Made Me Smile In August
OK, so there’s not been that many of them, a lot less than I’d have initially liked for this summer but never the less I’ve had the privilege of going to Cadbury world and experiencing something I’ve not experienced before. I also visited a wildlife park, a local one which to be fair isn’t my favourite and I always feel like the animals there are miserable but a good time was still managed with a brilliant company and that ultimately is all that matters. Stew and I also had a couple of days out together on our own this month which is a rare occurrence on its own. We visited Tattershall Castle and had our last trip to the seaside together as non-parents. You can read about that here.
An important one and one of my favourites no matter when it happens. This month we got to celebrate my dad turning 48 and we had a small family gathering at his house with party food. The downside is not being able to have a glass of wine, beer or one of dad’s special Vodka’s (as I am writing this I am drinking an alcohol-free shandy *sobs*). It was lovely just sitting in dads back garden eating delicious finger foods and chatting about all kinds of random crap. It makes me greedy and I want to do it more.
Getting Birdie Back
You may have also read on my blog that my Conure escaped a little earlier this month (read about it here).
We got her back within an hour of trying to get her home. My heart was in my throat the whole time and my sister was especially surprised at how cool and collected I was, but the truth of the matter is, getting worked up was going to get us nowhere. I’m sure she had a great adventure through, whilst it lasted. She certainly wasn’t scared that’s for sure.
Thunderstorm Of The Year
On the 27th we got the biggest thunderstorm here in Lincoln that we’d not had in a long time. In fact, it has to be at the top of my list for the best ever one I’ve seen yet. It was incredible, completely full off electricity and even scared the witts out of me at one point with the biggest crack of thunder i’d ever heard in my whole life. It was well overdue, beautiful and well needed too. Now Autumn, come at me.
