Why Do Pets Make You Happier?

We all love our furry friends, and there are no doubts that owning a pet can enrich your life. However, do pets really make you happier? There is plenty of research that says they do, and you’d be hard-pressed to find a devoted pet owner who doesn’t think the world of their four-legged family member. 

But why do pets make you happier? Here are some reasons why you may have more to thank your pet for than you first thought…

Essentials For The Ultimate Girls Night In

There's nothing better than having a girly night in with your best friends. I remember growing up my sister would have lots of her friends over and I was always so jealous so I definitely made up for it when I grew up! Being only 26, I still love a night out, but with winter season just around the corner, it always feels like the perfect time to plan a night in with my friends to unwind and enjoy a few laughs.The best part is I don't have to wear any makeup, style my hair and I get to wear my comfy pyjamas! But of course don't forget the following sleepover essentials as well!

Dating Etiquette and Expectations for the First Date

Whether you date constantly or are getting back into the dating game, dating can be rather daunting and challenging but the good thing about a first date is that it's a completely new person who you have never met before. This means you're excited and nervous all at the same time but will probably have some dating expectations too like who is going to pay the bill or will he/her like me. But if you erase those dating expectations and put less pressure on yourself, you have nothing to lose and could end up potentially having the perfect date.

On the other hand I think certain dating etiquette should always be followed if you want to make a great first impression. For example making sure your mobile is off providing no distractions, be on time for the date and look smart, remember to listen to them and ask questions and don't mention ex's unless they ask.

The Bulls Head Meriden Review

I'm quite lucky to live in Warwickshire where there are lots of wonderful pubs to eat and drink at, but occasionally you can get bored of going to the same place all the time and want to try somewhere new and different. The quaint country pub The Bulls Head is nestled in the small village of Meriden which is located between Solihull and Coventry and is officially the centre of EnglandLuckily for me they asked if I wanted to see a preview of their new makeover before they reopened and try their three course menu too... Of course I jumped at the chance and I was not disappointed!

Pashley Picnic 2018

On Saturday 15th September, I attended my fourth Pashley Picnic joining my boyfriend Blake, who works for the British bicycle brand based in our hometown of Stratford Upon Avon. Pashley Cycles have been creating quintessential British bikes for over 90 years making them the longest established cycle manufacturer and a brand I really love! They invite all their Pashley customers to this cycling event every year to ride their bikes throughout Stratford, meet new people and just have FUN! This was in fact their biggest attendance yet, with tickets in high demand!

Malta Travel Diary

The last week of September the boyfriend and I travelled to Malta for an all inclusive holiday meaning unlimited food and drinks! Bliss! With three islands to see: Gozo, Comino and Malta itself, heavily influenced by the Italians, hidden gems everywhere, the clearest waters and beautiful surroundings, it's a country that has so much to offer for couples and families. I'm sharing below what we got up to over a week in the glorious Malta sunshine!
