Support Small Saturday.

    Once upon a time, I was a small business owner – not that long ago actually, I only closed in January of this year. Anyway, since I decided to re-direct my focus onto blogging & tutorials i’ve had a little niggle of guilt at the back of my head. I am completely aware […]

Top picks: Festival fashion.

Festival season is nearly upon us. I have to admit i’m not a big lover of the festival scene, in theory it should be my heaven.. but it really seems so impractical. queuing hours for a toilet, extremely overpriced beer and not to mention I’m 4 foot 11″ will I actually be able to see […]

Sticky lemon drizzle cake.

  It’s May bank holiday weekend, there really isn’t a better time to bake a cake. And nothing says summer like this delicious sticky lemon drizzle cake. Its my all time favourite. I like it the day after its been made when the lemon sugar syrup has stuck with the icing sugar topping, a sweet […]

Mischa’s Birthday Party : Photo diary.

Mid pregnancy  we were posted to Germany & two weeks after we arrived I went into pre-term labour. I lay aching on the sofa all day […]

Quick and easy mirror up-cycle.

 I’m a massive lover of car boots.. One mans junk is another mans treasure and all that. A few weeks ago I bagged a bargain with this massive mirror, It was just what I had been looking for size wise (minus the £100+ price tag) and we managed to get it for the grand sum […]

Real chicken gravy – 5 easy steps.

Happy Sunday! Here in the Swain house we love Sundays. The door doesn’t get unlocked, pyjamas stay on, the TV shows a constant run of family friendly box sets and films (Modern Family & Harry potter being our favourite), we spend the whole day relaxing, just being, free of any stress that comes from having a busy […]
