My first experience of a blogging conference with Blogon

May 22, 2017 admin 2

On Sunday I attended my first ever blogging conference with Blogon in Manchester and to say I was a nervous wreck would be an understatement. I booked it on a whim a few months ago after a couple of glasses wine, a shot of courage and chaser of inspiration and then shut it from my ever anxious mind until the day itself. Well, that day was yesterday and I survived, just! I left with plenty […]

An anniversary afternoon tea at Patisserie Valerie

April 19, 2017 admin 0

This weekend my husband and I celebrated 6 years of marriage and as part of my gift to him we went for afternoon tea at Patisserie Valerie at Cheshire Oaks. Now had you asked me a few years ago how I would celebrate anniversaries, or in fact how I would spend any child free time we managed to get, I can assure you an afternoon tea would not have been my answer.

My trip to the Very dresses event in Liverpool

November 5, 2016 admin 2

Now I dread bonfire night, in fact I dread the whole weekend. My eldest is scared of loud noises, always has been. When he was tiny he was frightened of the hover, (a good excuse for […]

My exciting news

August 21, 2015 admin 1

I am so excited right now, I cant stop smiling and I am buzzing with ideas.   After doing several reviews on various forever living products and seeing fantastic results from the c9 (losing 6lbs in 9 days), the toothpaste and the bee pollen tablets I made the decision to sign up and become a business owner, promoting products I truly believe in and genuinely use myself. At first I was a little worried it […]

Do you have a bucket list?

May 31, 2015 admin 4

As well as having The strawberry fountain beauty and lifestyles blog I also have another, more personal, blog called the 30 before 30 mission. This blog is to track my progress on completing 30 missions before I turn 30 and to talk about my experiences along the way. I started it back in October last year when my 29th birthday was fast approaching and I was becoming increasingly aware that I would soon be 30, […]
