Where’s May gone? Not only that but I have a son who turned 14 this month – how did that happen?! I only feel about 28 myself!
May has certainly been a busy month, but I can’t complain as it's the way I like things.
It also means that I get the opportunity to get out and about and try new things, which I love doing of course.
So, here’s a round up of May favourites and things I’ve tried…
The right start to the day
As you’ll probably know I’m a fan of thrifty finds. But thrifty doesn’t have to mean cheap or that it’s not great value for money.

Previous favourites have included 24, Prison Break, Luther, Breaking Bad, You, Ozark and Designated Survivor.
One of my friends has suggested Killing Eve, which I might give a go, but I’m open to suggestions – so if you have any please let me know! Oh, and anyone know when Line Of Duty returns?!
After being diagnosed with breast cancer in March, my whole lifestyle has seen a bit of an overhaul – everything from my skincare to my diet.
Something that I’ve been very mindful of has been non-toxic cleaning products – and not just for me – with both pets and kids in the house it’s no bad thing knowing that
