Our Wild Northumbrian Adventure

I’m snuggled upon a bed fit for a princess…the most magical four poster bed, with posts made from the trunks of silver birch, wrapped in twinkling fairy lights….Arthur is sleeping soundly beside me, Dan is laid across the bottom of the bed, engrossed in a book, Ollie is sleeping on the floor, beside the fire….the…

Our Lake District Adventure

I spoke in my last post about my New Year Intentions. One of the most important ones for me was adventure. To be precise, more of them! It really does spark joy within me to find myself in new places, exploring new landscapes….especially with the promise of a little magic thrown in. This month the…

Enchanted Escapes

One of our main priorities as a family for 2019 is connection and adventures. One of my favourite feelings in the whole world, is grabbing a bag, throwing a few essentials into it and heading off into nature. This year I am making sure that happens as much as possible. As a family we will…

2018 Reflections.

This post began with the title New Year Intentions and ended up the title 2018 reflections, although ramblings may be more apt! It has been a funny old year, 2018. It seems like not much has changed looking from the outside, but looks can be deceiving. This year has seen many changes for me on…

Zero Waste Hair Care

I’m pretty excited about this…. I have finally perfected my hair care routine. Now don’t get too excited, it’s quite minimal and I am low maintenance! I have been using shampoo bars for a while. My last bar was Hydrophil and I really loved this. My current one is Lamazuna and it is also great….

Our Magical Life.

I thought I would do a bit of an introduction to tell you a bit more about me and my family…..I realise this is a bit late and I probably should have done this first. LOL! Better later than never though! So I’m Amy, I’m married to Dan, we have been together for 14 years…

My Plastic Free Period

This may be a too much information blog post, so if you don’t wanna talk periods you may want to leave now! I purchased a new menstural cup in July and I have 100% changed my period for the better! About 5 years ago, before Arthur came along and we just had Ollie, my husband…
