Windy Arbour Farm

This month I’ve been to Windy Arbour Farm for my Farm-of-the-month series. The farm shop is run by the Turner family. They were already farming at Windy Arbour for over a century when they decided to start selling their own produce in 1970s. Most of the veggies found at the farm shop are local. Of […]

5 minutes workout

5 minutes workout

While I was away, I set myself a challenge to do as many push-ups as I could in a 5 minutes workout. I needed a fast and high intensity exercise routine as I didn’t have time for a 30 minutes workout. Because it was only 5 minutes I was able to do it everyday, usually […]

Homemade popcorn

Making popcorn at home is so easy. I find the small bags of popcorn have too much salt and too much oil, also I don’t have a microwave oven at the moment. After trying to find better ways to make popcorn, I finally can say that making popcorn is fun, easy and with great results […]

Charlecote Park

I’ve been to Charlecote Park just 1 day before the house was opened again to the public. It was a lovely day, so hubby and I walked around the parkland, admired the deer and had a look in the kitchen and stables. Charlecote was completed in 1558 by the first Sir Thomas Lucy and it […]

Kiqplan fitness app

5 outfits for work

I wore these 5 outfits last week, so I’ve decided to make a post about them instead of 5 different posts. A few things are new, some of them were mentioned before on my blog. When I chose the clothes for these 5 days, comfort was of the main things I had in mind, as […]

Good things

I wouldn’t have imagined to start my Good things post with a rant about B&Q, but well… this is what I’m going to talk about in the next paragraph. If you were not involved in this, the story will seem funny. 1. Buying stilts for the loft. So, on Saturday, hubby and I went to […]

Bed Head review

For Christmas I received a set of Bed Head Shampoo & Conditioner Urban Antidote #2 from my Secret Santa. I wasn’t familiar with the brand, so I had no expectations. I started using it in January and I’m delighted with the results. My hair felt better from the first time I used it. As the […]


On Monday I’ve been to London for the day and after taking into account all the possibilities, I decided to go to Shoreditch in my spare time. Hubby and I got up late as we both worked very late last Sunday. We managed to leave at around 9am. Amazingly it took less than 4 hours […]

5 Bloggers to follow

I was nominated by Amanda (from amandasays) for the Blogger recognition award. I already talked about the reasons behind starting my lifestyle blog in Why I blog. Instead of choosing 5 bloggers to nominate for the award, I’m going to talk about 5 bloggers to follow. Bloggers that I think you, my readers, would like […]
