A Letter to my Younger Self.

Hey Steve,

How ya doing?

You’re currently 17 and, knowing you, right now you’re probably sleeping in and waking up just in time to get to work with 2 minutes to spare. Unfortunately, your ability to get up on time in the morning won’t be getting much better, but I wanted to drop you a few lines to let you know that a few things definitely will change within the next 10 years…

You know that girl you’ve just started dating? The one who gave you the

Valentine’s Gift Ideas

SB_PandoraValentines_1_17A1368 SB_PandoraValentines_7

My choices: Sterling Silver Bracelet with Heart Clasp, Linked Love Ring, Heart to Hear Earrings, Love Locks Charm, Joined Together Charm, Filled with Romance Charm

Valentines day is quickly approaching and with it comes pressure and a need to make sure that you get your partner that perfect gift. Each year I find it gets tougher, so the fact that you can ask other people for some help is great!

 As you may have read in my previous Pandora post, they have this really awesome gifting tool on their website which allows you to tell them who you’re buying for, which occasion and what kind of jewellery style they have too, but most uniquely allows you to get the opinion of friends and family before buying a specific piece, so you can be 100% certain sure of your choice! ☺

 I’m sure a lot of people can get stressed out and worried about buying gifts for loved ones and we all want to make sure it’s the perfect gift. This is why it’s super important to get advise from friends / family and the fact that the Pandora gifting tool allows you to do this saves a lot of stress when trying to pick out the perfect piece on your own.

 So for those of you, like me that struggle with choosing your Valentine’s Day gifts, through the help of the gifting tool this can become a really enjoyable experience and take the stress away from worrying about what items to pick.

 Hopefully this will offer that little extra help you were looking for on this special day!

For this post I thought I would share with you guys how I decided on which gifts to give Alexia for her early Christmas presents. Pandora has a gifting tool on their website which allows you to tell them who you’re buying for, which occasion and what kind of jewellery style they are too, but most uniquely allows you to get the opinion of friends and family before buying a specific piece, so you can be 100% certain sure of your choice!

I found this a massive help to narrow down the kind of jewellery I wanted to give Alexia for our first Christmas as husband and wife because I could then go through the options on the Pandora website, highlight the options and then send a link to friends and family for their input on my final decision!

Alexia loved the

Yesterday myself, Alexia, Jake, Ben & Nicole ventured up to London to test out Google Glass, I was super excited as this is the first time Glass has come to the UK for public use. The event was in King’s Cross and we queued eagerly to get ours hands (or actually eyes) on it. My first impression was that Google are one of the best at holding events like this, beginning with some super friendly people handing out the most delicious
