Hello and Happy 1st of October to you all! Firstly How exactly are we in October already! September absolutely flew by and now in my opinion we can officially start being openly excited that CHRISTMAS is approaching! Honestly I’d already have the Christmas tree up now if I was allowed!
Hello lovelies! How are you all? It’s been a little quiet over here on my blog lately partly due to us being so busy with the Wedding, we had such a wonderful day and family moon in Cornwall and I just felt like taking a little bit of a break on our return back but I’m back today with a post all about our most recent visit to the wonderful Berkeley Castle.
Hello lovely ladies and gents, if it’s your first time visiting My Little Brushneen Blog I’m Kayleigh, 29, mummy, fiancee, beauty therapist and blogger. I blog about a variety of things but mostly focus on our family life, lifestyle and beauty.
I still consider myself as fairly new to the blogging world, first taking the plunge and posting online in May 2017. I say this alot but I can’t quite believe how quickly the time has flown by, it’s been almost a year since I started sharing our adventures and thoughts through my blog.
In that time I’ve discovered some truly amazing, fabulous and extremely talented bloggers and made some lovely friends through blogging that have supported me and my little blog and inspired me to really give this a go!
I loved seeing the posts and pics of last year’s Blog on meets, what an amazing opputunity it is to get to know fellow bloggers, learn more, liase with brands and make some lovely new friends. I seen tickets for BlogOnX advertised on social media and just couldn’t resist! Although I’m super nervous I am also super excited to be attending and I can’t wait to meet you all!!!
BlogOnX Introduce Yourself Linky Questions
Hmm…good question, for me It has to be a hearty meat feast! It’s a family favourite in our household and definitely the one I tend to opt for the most.
You can have dinner with any three guests dead or alive- who do you choose and why?
Oh there are so many! Right now I would choose Kate Middleton because quite simply I just really admire her, for what she does along with her lovely hubby, the Duke of Cambridge and Prince Harry heading the heads together campaign and for the awareness that brings for mental health and the support that’s out there. I also just think she’s fabulous and she seems the sort of woman that just takes everything in her stride and that she’d always have the perfect advice! Along with Kate I’d invite …Leonardo DiCaprio – I would love to talk to him about his experience within the film industry and he just seems so darn cool! Lastly I’d invite Leigh Francis aka Keith Lemon just because he’s hilarious and actually I’m interested to know what he’s like out of character…whoa what a night that would be!
Up to now what would you consider being your biggest life achievement?
Without a doubt our beautiful little baby girl.
If you woke up tomorrow as a character from any Disney film or book who would you be and why?
Well for thus weekend I would be Mary Poppins! Then not only could I travel in with my umbrella but also waltz in with a dance and a song and with that magical bag I would have no worries about packing the amazing goody bags haha!
What is the first thing you do when you wake up in the morning?
Check my phone for the time, I rarely set an alarm as we have our very own little human one that is impeccably consistent.
If you won the lottery what would be the very first thing you would buy and why?
A big family holiday, probably to Disneyland Florida oh that would be so amazing …I should maybe start doing the lottery, got to be in it to win it and all that.
What is your favourite quote from a movie?
“Venture outside your comfort zone, the rewards are worth it” – Rapunzel, Tangled.
If you were a superhero what would your super power be?
Super speed because I hate being late and we’d have more time to get ready.
What is the best piece of advice you have ever been given?
Worrying won’t stop that bad stuff from happening but it will stop you from enjoying the good.
Which emoji do you use the most?
If you could go back in time and tell yourself anything what would it be?
The lottery numbers haha! On a serious note though I would tell myself not to be afraid to be me, have more confidence and try not to worry so much, during those anxious times don’t feel like you’re alone, ask for help because there are so many people that love you and want to be there for you, don’t hold yourself back, you’re stronger than you know, get yourself out there, you won’t regret it.
What do you currently have set as the wallpaper on your phone?
If you could do anything in the world as a legitimate job what would you do?
Oh gosh! I really love my job as a beauty therapist, I would love to one day have my own really successful business within the industry so I’d probably choose something like beauty therapist to the stars or something like that, have loads of amazing celebrity clients and work in an amazing setting!
Where is your favourite place in the world?
Other than home, has to be Cornwall, it’s one of my happy places and our favourite place to visit as a family. It’s beautiful and everything just feels so much calmer there.
So there’s a little more about me, i’m super excited for BlogOnX and hopefully making some lovely new friends, i’ll be so so nervous so if you see me than please come up and say hi, i’m super friendly! If you’re going to attending please leave me a comment and let me know, have a fantastic bank holiday weekend all!
On Saturday the 10th of March 2018, the day before Mothering Sunday, we took a trip to the wonderful Longleat Safari and Adventure park for a lovely Mother’s day treat. We headed off after breakfast with a very excited little monkey of our own looking forward to spotting the many beautiful animals and exotic creatures and getting to spend the day with both Nana’s!
We welcomed spring 2018 with bitterly cold winds, icy grounds and a rather significant amount of snowfall as the beast from the east and storm Emma hit the Cotswolds. In fact there was so much snow that we ended up with a large snow drift outside our front door that was just as exciting for us big kids to jump in as it was for the little one!
