Networking - Liebster and local style!

My recent transition to almost full-time working has meant that I haven't spent that much time blogging or catching up on social media; well, except for Facebook which is essential down time, obviously. 

So I was very chuffed this week when the fabulous Shula at the Fun Fashion & Things blog nominated me for a Liebster Award - I may be away from the blogosphere, but I'm not forgotten! It served as a timely reminder that I may have thrown myself into work, but it's great to have me time, too. 

The idea is to connect with other bloggers, who may not be as well known, and to find out more about each other - the questions may also provide stimulus for future blog opportunities!

Here are my answers to the questions from Fun Fashion & Things: 

What is your current favourite make up product?
Has to be a BB Cream - currently loving No 7 in Medium. 

What music are you loving at the moment?
I listen to 2 hours of country a day, thanks to a commute (Kip Moore, Brad Paisley & The Shires this fortnight alone). 

Your favourite childhood memory is…?
Finding and reading in woodland dens

What is your favourite part about blogging?
The creativity 

Where do you see yourself in 5-10 years (personally and professionally)?
 To have discovered South America, and written about it, obviously.

What is your opinion on Frozen?
Fabulous - I can blog for two hours while it's on! Plus, I can watch my little girl sing her heart out to Let it Go forever.

What do you enjoy doing in your spare time?
Sleeping, or watching Nashville. 

What skincare product could you not live without? 
Moisturiser - loving Clinique's Moisture Surge 

If you could move to anywhere in the world, where would you go?
Anywhere with white sand and palm trees - and WiFi.

Favourite sandwich filling? 
Ham and Cheese. 

My Questions: 
When was the last time you danced? 

What are you having for dinner tonight?
How long have you been blogging for?
What is your number 1 blogging tip? 
What is your favourite film?
How do you pamper yourself?

What are you currently reading?
Are you reading on a Kindle?

What's your top networking tip?
What time do you go to bed?

My Nominees:

The Liebster Award networking rules:
 -To start, you need to make a post thanking and linking the person who nominated you.
-You must also include the Liebster award sticker in your post
-You then nominate at least 5 other bloggers with 200 or less followers who you think deserve the award and link them. Make sure you let them know you nominated them by commenting on one of their posts.
-Answer the questions that were asked of you by the person who nominated you which are on their post and then make 10 of your own for your selected nominees.
-And finally, copy these rules on to your post.

I'm now off to roast a chicken, such is the life of a Working Mum - I'll be up to my eyes in planning and marking on Sundays for a good while yet! (I'm also going to write a blog post about my initial transition very soon!)

From Ashford to Plymouth (and Cornwall) in a fortnight

So, Easter: how did you spend yours? 

I've just looked back over my recent photos and I think I know why this Pinot and Cadbury's egg is going down so well....we've packed in a fair bit over the last fourteen days.

Our adventures began in Ashford, Kent, via an overnight with friends in Chippenham - where I managed to leave my purse and my daughter's Kindle behind!  Time to pop on some sunnies and kick off your shoes: 

Thankfully we were staying with friends in Ashford, so we shared our budget for the five days of fun. 

First stop was Folkestone beach.  

Chicago: 48 Hours in the Magnificent Midwest

I first discovered Chicago in 2013, and have been fortunate enough to return several times since, usually for 24 or 48 hours, so I highly recommended this HIIT city destination. 

I also managed to fit in a 12 hour shopping trip layover when I visited Belize in April 2016.

A serial East Coast traveller (remember when everyone travelled to New York for a weekend break?) a work opportunity arose that saw me book a flight to Chicago for onward travel to a little student town called Champaign; four-hour return Amtrak trip, and well worth a visit for a true taste of America (they even have a freakin’ Dairy Queen).
Flights Flights are around 9 hours direct from the UK, and, depending how organised you are, range from £500-£800 for economy return.  
Hotels For reasons I’m about to go into, I enjoy staying at Hilton O’Hare (the only airport hotel; handy for layovers) or the Hilton Rosemont (one MTR stop from O’Hare and an entertainment haven).  City-centre hotels are very competitively priced, sta…
