I spent the Mother's Day weekend with my daughter in Bath, she is studying to be a Norland Nanny and is on the last little bit now, those three years have flown by! We spent Friday afternoon at Thermae Bath Spa, Saturday we did a Bridgerton Walking Tour and Sunday we shopped, walked and enjoyed a lovely lunch near the Royal Crescent.
I also got to try out two lovely blogger gifts that were sent to me, it felt amazing to cast off a layer and dress for spring ... and Bath looked spectacular with the blue skies and sunshine. Read on for spring styling ideas and things to do in Bath!

It feels like so long since I shared a blog post about a weekend away! But finally this year we are getting back to normal and we have a few trips booked in. One of the first was a night in Kent. We had an amazing day out and loved our stay at Leeds Castle. So if you are looking for things to do in Kent and want to find out more about Leeds Castle then read on!
A few months ago I embarked on a little home upgrade project! With the help of local interior designer Charlotte Minshell from Minshell Designs, I set about updating some of our decor, decluttering (now we have an empty nest) and creating some new colour schemes. I didn't want to complete a full renovation and I didn't need to do much decorating but I did feel we needed to inject a little creativity and tidy up our storage space as well as add some new updated accessories. It has been so much fun to do and I am delighted with the results. Without spending a fortune either. Charlotte came up with new ideas, things I hadn't thought of, and we worked together to make sure I kept to a budget but achieved my goals!
We had a fairly clear blank canvas in as far as the walls were already painted cream and we have good quality furniture items that we didn't want to get rid of but we did need ideas of how to give everything a fresher, more modern look .
Upstairs had already been done the previous year so this project was focussed on the ground floor - the kitchen, conservatory and utility room, my home office and the living room, hall, stairs and landing! You can read my brief to Charlotte on my blog post, Can I Afford an Interior Designer?

A sagging jawline is a common sign of ageing. Most people who work out focus their efforts on tummies, legs and arms. But what about your face? For some reason, people seem to forget that facial muscles also need to be exercised on a regular basis in order to maintain a healthy muscle tone. Exercising the lower face and chin and jaw muscles may help prevent jowls or loose, sagging skin around the jawline as you age.
