A little trip to Centre Parcs

A few weeks back me, my mum and brother took a very much needed little break away to Centre Parcs in Longleat Forest.  After a few not so great weeks at home and on recommendation from a friend, we booked up a last minute lodge for a really good price.

I can honestly say it was a lovely lovely trip! The site itself is pretty big, so we hired out some bikes (my mum+a bike=pretty hilarious) and got cycling. Let's just say our legs got a really good workout! We stayed in one of their Executive Suites, as the cost of upgrading actually worked out cheaper than the standard 'Woodland Lodge'. The accommodation came with some additional touches, such as a sauna room, a hot tub style bath and en suites for each bedroom.

Something I would bear in mind if you're thinking of staying at Centre Parcs is that the activities can be pretty expensive. Apart from the swimming which is free, you do have to pay for most of the activities,  I would definitely suggest having a little look at what's on offer before hand and make a note of the things you would like to book up. There are several restaurant on site such as Strada, Cafe Rouge and Hucks American Diner which we ate in on our last night. We did bring food with us for the majority of our stay and I would highly recommend doing so if you're looking to save the pennies!

If a few days away in the countryside is your kinda thing, Centre Parcs is a great place to book for a short break-We are already planning a trip back in the Summer!

Getting the chop- A New Year haircut

2014 was the year of the 'lob'-the long bob hair cut which we saw become a prominent hair trend. Fuss free and chic, it seemed everyone was getting their locks cut off, and I wanted in on the action.
Lauren Conrad has always been one of my all time girl crushes, so seeing her have that cut , I saw it as a sign and thought to myself  'Sarah, just bloody go for it'.

My hair has always been my comfort blanket. Apart from the odd trim and colour I have never really experimented with different styles and cuts, as I have always been more of a low maintenance fuss free gal. A short cut would be a big big change for me, but I knew I had to go for it...

The verdict? I am So glad that I finally did it! Having the same hair for years left me feeling uninspired and desperate for a change, and if feels so refreshing going into the new year with a new look. It will always grow back eventually, plus it feels so much healthier and in better condition.

It has also made me want to revamp my style a little and incorporate some new shapes and key items into my wardrobe. Any excuse to shop eh....
