How Investing In Luxury Can Help You To Relieve Stress

Oh, to live a life of luxury. Many of us dream about it, but few of us can afford it. After rent, bills and food, most of us parents just want to spend the rest of our money on our kids. There is, of course, nothing better than seeing the smile on their face when you tell them they're going for a day out, or simply that you've bought them a gift.

In the madness of day to day life we can often end up forgetting about the need to care for ourselves too. Stress plays a major part in the lives of many modern women, and you may be personally feeling the strain also, but, there are little things you can add to your daily, weekly or monthly routine that can help you feel that little bit more grounded. Remember that self-care is just as important as caring for others - so invest a little more in yourself.

Don't Let Your Garden Fall To Ruins This Winter.

We're days away now (12 to be precise) until the official start of the UK's winter season (21st December), although with the weather the way it is now, it feels like winter already! I have topped up my gas twice this week already, and I'm 100% sure that it won't last me a full week! It's time to migrate to Australia where it's sunny and hot during this time of the year, but then they have huge, and I mean HUGE spiders, so that's a no go afterall!

Talking about spiders, I have seen less in the garden during the last month, but more in the home. As much as I wish it was the other way round, it's given me the confidence to get green fingered as much as I can, of course there isn't much that can be done when it comes to plotting and planting, but the grass is in dire need of a winter cut and have I mentioned the 4000 leaves everywhere?

Keeping You and Your Home Warm During Winter.

As winter starts to slowly creep upon us (21st December - so only a matter of days away!), it's time to start thinking about keeping yourself, your family and your home warm - if you've not already done so that is.  With studies finding the cold weather more deadly than heatwaves, now is the best time to get your home ready for the winter chill.

Many people believe that if they wrap up warm when they go outside, they're protected from the cold weather, but this isn't true. Of course making sure you have a decent winter coat which keeps you warm and the warmth in is essential, but you also need to consider what is under your coat, and even what footwear you have on. Wearing gloves, scarves and a hat are also essential winter accessories, but make sure they're for the season, a summer hat isn't going to do, nor is a thin fashionable scarf.

Dressing Plus Size and Beautiful This Christmas.

A lot of things annoy me when it comes to being plus size, if I was asked to pick my top 10 hates, I'd struggle because many of them annoy me as equally as the next, but one thing that frustrates more so then the others and would easily top number one on the list is the ugliest fashion. It's like when you have a few extra pounds, you need to dress way older than your age and even era - I HATE that and it's one of the reasons why I am aiming to lose a few stone next year, but it shouldn't be like that should it?


Whilst many companies do their best for the larger market, taking a walk down the high street leaves you with so little choices, and I know the plus size ladies of Reading are feeling me right now. Thankfully though, we have the internet and whilst some find it utter hassle, I personally find it the best way to shop around without being left red faced in the fitting room.
