The views yesterday were absolutely stunning. Woolacoombe you didn’t disappoint. 

The sea was so calm, which I loved but the kiddies wanted waves to bodyboard through. I actually went in the sea. It was quite warm in the shallows.

As the sun reached near its setting place the reflection on the sea was mesmerising. I could have sat there all evening.

More beach days please 🙏🏻 Have you been to the beach this Summer?

It’s not quite the Devonshire coast, but it’s not bad for on my doorstep. Whilst Hubby has been in the sea all day with the kids, we’ve been chilling in the evening sun.

It was nice in the park as it’s soo open. The breeze cooled us down. I sat there with the dogs & it felt like we were on our own in the park. No one around. So peaceful.

Did you get out in the sun today?

When Hubby sends you a photo of your babies washing up… Isla cooked them dinner and cleaned up afterwards too. I’m impressed.

It’s lovely that they are starting to get more involved. They’re so grown up. And they look super happy too!

Hamper: What makes them universal gifts we all love to share?

Since gift-giving is a way to show someone how much you care about them and how valuable you deem your relationship, finding a gift that would perfectly express this can be exhausting. With so many occasions, whether it’s holidays like Christmas and Easter, Mother’s Day or Father’s Day, Valentine’s Day or a birthday, it can be a hassle trying to come up with a gift that’s at the same time useful and surprising. And yet, the solution may be easier than you think. Why complicate the gift-shopping process, when you can simply focus on a universal option that offers something that would please even the pickiest of giftees. Sounds too good to be true, right? But rest assured it isn’t when you choose to give a gift basket or hamper. VIEW the POST

So, I thought I would put this post together of wonderful ideas, from Age UK, on creating special ways to celebrate the life of your loved ones.

Moissanite – Easy on the eyes and the conscience

Moissanite – Easy on the eyes and the conscience

You may have never heard of moissanite, but it has been around for over 120 years, having been discovered in a meteor crater in the late 1800s. Due to its unique characteristics, it is rare to find in nature, but scientists have managed to recreate the gemstone artificially using advanced scientific methods. The process has evolved over the years and with this, the quality of the stones. This makes moissanite a sparkling, spectacular and cost-efficient alternative to conventional diamonds. Moissanite rings boast a brilliance that rivals the most stunning of diamonds and can often score higher in the refractive index depending on the cut of the stone. VIEW the POST
