Karma Se7en Review – 2

Hi Guys,

I’m back again with another review of some more Karma Se7en jewellery…

This time I got some new tragus jewellery & I love them all. I especially love the little crown.

It’s a bit of an inside story, but our son is called Theoden – after King Theoden *LOTR* so we always say he’s our little king. Ever since he’s been born, when we sign his name on cards, we put a little crown above the ‘T’, so it felt only fitting that I got this cute little crown as a little symbol of love for my little man. Needless to say, I’ve worn it ever since.

Again, the quality of these pieces are beautiful, they’re really unique & pretty, but are also really well made. I still adore the packaging, I think it’s such a lovely touch & shows they’re sent with care.

I also got this lovely little heart, it’s so pretty & so sparkly, it’s really understated but really catches the light & twinkles beautifully.

Next up is this cute little starfish, I loved the little octopus that I got last time so much, I decided I’d get another quirky little sea creature to go with it…

I got this gorgeous little ice cream stud, I just couldn’t leave it there, it’s so fun! I love that it’s pink too, it really catches the eye & it’s perfect for summer!!

Last but not least, I got this beautiful little dangly dragonfly. I got the dangly heart last time & I love that one so when I saw this I had to get it. (That & the fact I love dragonflies!!)

That’s all I got, I’m made up with all of them & couldn’t be happier with the service this company provide. They really do beat any other online body jewellery company I’ve come across & their regular update of jewellery really keeps you going back for more. The only thing I dislike, is that they don’t do more jewellery, like necklaces & bracelets, because then I’d really spend all my time shopping & there’d be something for everyone!

Still, the quality, variety & prices are brilliant, I’ve said it before & I’ll say it again – it’s definitely worth checking out, because they’re amazing!! 🙂

Comment below if you’ve checked out their website, what are your thoughts & what did you buy?

Home Decor, Toddler Style.

Hello!!

A few days back the hubby-to-be & I were talking about home decor & I was rambling on about how I can’t wait to move & finally decorate somewhere! The house we’ve been living in for the past nearly two years is rented & magnolia, everywhere. Classic rental property. I actually like having light walls, I love to give rooms a pop of colour with accessories & colour them that way…I find it much more fun. Plus I know if I change my mind in 6 months time, it’s easy to just swap out some wall art or cushion covers for new ones.

Anyway, I decided that even though we only probably have 6 months left here, I’d take the time to start adding a bit of colour, now the Christmas decorations have been put away, so that for the remaining time we’re here it won’t just feel like we’re still living out of boxes. Silly I know, because what’s the point, but I’m a woman & I’m weird, so that’s how it is. 😉

IMG_0956Back to the subject matter….I was looking at different print sizes / canvas’ online because I want to get some of my photos printed out & displayed, (I have so many backed up on the laptop not being used or looked at & it gets me down sometimes) & I saw a canvas that looked like someone had just taken a canvas, put a load of sellotape over the top of it in a random fashion & splatted paint on it. I looked at it & thought, you know what….I’ve got some small canvas’ laying around in a bag that I’ve had for about a year & not done anything with, so I thought I’d have a go, but toddler style!!

So, I set to work, cutting out shapes from sellotape to make a train, because our little man Theo loves trains. I finished the train with a bit of a gap at the bottom of the canvas & thought I’d put his name across the bottom to fill the space. We covered the floor like we normally do & put him in some old clothes & essentially let him go wild with paints. He had a great time, finger painting & painting with a brush, mixing all his colours & doing what he wanted. As soon as the first colours went onto the canvas it started to look really awesome & the more that went on & got smushed around the more excited I got to see the outcome.

And here it is: *don’t mind his girly ‘craft time’ cover all*

IMG_0986I really love it, I think it’s a great little way to get your toddler involved in decorating, it’s a win win situation really, because he loved it, I love the outcome & it’s something he can look at & know he did. I want to do one for the living room too, not a train I might add, but it’s a great, cheap way of adding a pop of colour to your walls & involving the little one as well. I’ll no doubt post pictures of any others I do, so keep an eye out for that.

So there we go, home decor, toddler style! – I hope you enjoyed it.

Hello Everyone!!

Today I thought I’d just do a little update post for you all to let you know a little about what I’ve been up to in the new year.

To be honest, I’ve not done too much! I’ve started my new years resolutions, which were;

1, Lose weight / eat right / get fit & healthy.

2. Get organised

3. Have more ‘me’ time

4. Try new things…

So, as I said, I’ve already started back on my healthy lifestyle plan, it’s going well so far, but I’m making sure I just ease myself back into it rather than jumping straight from my very *cough* unhealthy Christmas into a super healthy lifestyle again, because I know I would fail myself miserably. *I’m following Slimming World*

I’ve also started to get a bit more organised too, we took down all the Christmas decorations *sob* a few days back & we did a bit of a spring clean at the same time. We’re trying to get everything organised for when we move away this year anyway, so any little things we can throw out or put in storage is a massive bonus.

Having more ‘me’ time is proving difficult, mostly because I’m rubbish at setting aside time for myself, I always find something else to do rather than just relaxing, but as most of you will know, having a toddler & having a house to run makes ‘me’ time a thing of the past. I’m working on it though & I’m promising myself a lovely relaxing bath tomorrow night with one of my Lush bath bombs that I got for Christmas. *well done hubby to be* 😉

Trying new things is a hard one, but I’m gonna make sure I put in the effort to try new things this year, even if it’s food that I swear I don’t like without trying it, or going somewhere or doing something out of my comfort zone….I’ve promised myself to at least try anyway.

Other than these things, I’ve not been up to much…I will, however, be posting on here more regularly (another promise I’ve made myself) so look out for my posts. 🙂

In other news, I’m starting to get my photography page back on the go *click here* so please go & check that out & ‘like’ the page to keep up to date with new photos being added & little treats that will be popping up here & there. I realise it’s pretty blank at the moment because I’ve deleted most of my content so I can start fresh, but it will be filling up in no time…

Please check out & follow all my other social media – *links are at the top of the page*

Speak to you soon, Kate, xo

New Years Eve Sleepover

Hi all & happy new years / eve!!

Are you all ready to see in the New Year tonight?

Me & my little family are spending the day & evening at Laurie’s sisters house. Tonight will be the first time Theo has ever had a sleep over & he’s having it with one of his cousins in his room.

Hopefully it will all go well & we can do it again a few times before our holiday in May when they’ll be sharing a room together. (I’m so excited for it!!!)

I’ve had a lovely year this year & I’m even more excited for next year! There’s lots on the horizon for me & my little family, including a big move, the start of nursery for Theo & hopefully a lot of little adventures for us too.

I’m excited to take you along on our journey & I hope you’ll enjoy it too.

HAPPY NEW YEAR TO YOU ALL!!
I hope you all have a fantastic evening & make lots of memories in the new year. Stay safe & I wish you all the health & happiness in the world. 💗

Love, KLB, xo

Christmas is over…

Hey Everyone,

I hope you all had a lovely Christmas, were spoilt rotten (not just with gifts) & that you got all that you wished for.

I had my best Christmas so far this year, I had the most wonderful day watching our little cub open all of his presents & we had a gorgeous Christmas dinner cooked by my hubby-to-be, it was a completely stress free, indulgent, happy day & I’m one happy lady! 😀

Although the Christmas decorations are all still up & sparkling, I can’t help but feel that after boxing day, Christmas is well & truly over. However, I wait for as long as I possibly can before I take down the decorations because I just think that the house looks so bare & boring without them & I must admit, I will definitely be missing the tree once it’s been taken down. It’s just so lovely to look at every morning when we come downstairs & I think the living room will feel so empty without it. Sad, I know. 😉

Anyway, I just wanted to write a quick little blog to say, I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas & to wish you all a fantastic & Happy New year!! I hope you’ve got your resolutions ready. 😉

Love, KLB, xo

Blogmas 3 – Going Blonde & Why I Wen’t Back Again…

Recently I started on a quest to go blonde (again). Every so often I get the urge to dye my hair & it’s normally blonde that I settle on. I convince myself every time that if I change my hair dramatically then it will somehow change the rest of me too & maybe I’ll be a new woman. Obviously, this isn’t the case. Every time, I do my hair blonde & I can’t get it the exact shade I want it, so I dye it back brunette…

This time, however, I got it done over quite a long period of time (for me) & in the end, I woke up from the madness I was in & I realised that, changing my hair colour won’t change who I am, or how I do things…It will just change my hair colour. Now, this may seem like a pretty obvious thing to announce, but to a lot of people, it’s how they feel.

So, I am now back a brunette & I’ve not been happier with myself. I’ve vowed never to go back blonde, because it just isn’t me. I feel comfortable as a brunette, because that’s how I was born to be, I may have had bright white blonde hair when I was tiny, but it doesn’t mean that it will suit me now. I know that I will always be a little bit late for everything, no matter how much I plan or try & make sure I’m early. I know I’ll always prefer to wear comfy clothes than get up early every day to pick out a nice pretty outift that no one will see & I know that even if my hair was a different colour, I still wouldn’t have the extra time in my day to style it nicely. I am me & I do things the way I do them, because that’s the only way I can do them (for now at least).

I suppose this is more of a post for me, than for anyone elses benefit, but I just wanted to put it out there for anyone who may be thinking of doing the same – don’t. I wish now I’d only gone a lighter or darker brunette, but we live & learn…

Here’s a few pictures of my journey…(if you’re interested)

Blogmas 2 – It’s a late one.

I’ve been really busy recently so I’m afraid, as you may have noticed, I have neglected my blog a little.

We’ve been getting ready for Christmas & with all the shopping, planning & toddler entertaining, I’ve just not had time to sit down & write a blog. I’ve managed to get a few YouTube videos filmed to be edited & put up, so look out for those soon – I’ll let you know when they’re live.

We’re currently visiting my family for an early Christmas. Laurie struggles to get time off work over the festive period, so this was the best time for us to come & spend some time with my family before Christmas comes. On Friday, we went to Chester, looked around the shops in search of the Christmas markets (we failed to find them until they were all closing!) & visited Chester Cathedral where they had a Lion the Witch & The Wardrobe exhibition. It was a really lovely little display & there were loads of little Christmas trees along each corridoor too, it was so pretty!

Then we went on to Chester Zoo Lantern Magic walk around the zoo. It was a really lovely way to spend the evening. We got our photo taken with Santa & Theo really enjoyed all the lit up animal statues & his lantern.

The bat cave was awesome, there were some really massive bats in there & there was a tiny one just hanging in the little tunnel, it was sooo cute!! I didn’t get a photo because I thought the sound of my camera might have scared it, but I did get a little snap shot of a big one just hanging there. 🙂

I got loads of photos of Theo under one of the walkways which had blue & white lights lining the roof, it was so beautiful & I’ve made up my mind that somewhere in the house we will have decorations similar next year 😉

Sorry for the lack of posts – I promise to be better in the future. (I feel a new years resolution coming on…)
