So yesterday was filled with old friends and lots of fun at Loco Show Co’s reunion! This is an event that we run every few years to welcome back old members and have a fun time together with lots of Loco generations. This year we had two events; one in the daytime and one at night to cater for everyone! It was such a lovely day that I thought a blog was definitely needed to remember it!  Continue reading “A LOVELY LOCO REUNION”


Hello lovely people! As most of you will know I spend most of my weekends at university.

From not understanding my accent to all the sheep jokes under the sun and the confusion over the word ‘cwtch.’ As a result, I thought I’d share what it’s really like being a Welsh gal studying at an English university.  Continue reading “BEING A WELSH GIRL AT AN ENGLISH UNI”


It feels like we’ve only just had the new year yet before we know it the shops are full of pink gifts and Valentine’s day is upon us! I’m not gonna lie I am a sucker for Valentine’s Day and anything romantic but for me it’s not about the presents or flowers. I use the day to reflect on my relationships and remember how lucky I am to have such a loving boyfriend, family and group of friends. Here’s what Alex and I got up to on our 5th Valentines as a couple.  Continue reading “OUR 5TH VALENTINE’S DAY”
