This is the time of the year when you’ll usually find people out in their gardens. Whether they’re having a barbecue with their family, sitting on the patio enjoying drinks with friends or just simply trying to tidy up and sort the garden out in preparation for the summer months, you can guarantee that once the weather gets a bit warmer there will be a lot more people spending time outside and making the most out of their back gardens.

If you’re one of those people who is lucky enough to have a beautiful garden and you’re looking for some new garden furniture well it could be your lucky day! Rattan Direct are currently running a competition to win a £500 voucher to spend online on their website. All you need to do is take a photo of your garden and send it in to them.

One bad habit that I’ve managed to avoid, is smoking. Don’t get me wrong, I’ve had the odd cigarette every now and then but I managed to keep away from them until I was at uni and it’s not something I plan on making a habit out of. There’s many reasons why, including the fact that it’s terrible for your lungs and can cause cancer but it can also have a lot of ill effects on how you look. Not to mention that it’s also really hard to stop smoking once you decide you don’t want to do it anymore. View Post

Back in April, I wrote a post about my plans for this summer and said I wanted to get to a couple of festivals (this is also on my 30 before 30 list), well I’ve managed to sort out tickets to Y Not festival in Derbyshire next weekend and V Festival in August. I’m so excited to camp at a festival for the first time and have been frantically trying to get myself prepared for it by buying all of the camping gear I can and planning out my outfits. View Post
