I'm a huge fan of the internet and social media in particular. It has its dark side though and I wonder sometimes about where it will all lead.

Those who know me know I don't do self-promotion when it comes to my blog.They also know I don't do blog awards.
That said, I've recently been nominated (by someone/s unknown) in the UK Blog Awards 2017. I had to fill in a section that says "Why Vote for Me?" and my answer was...
"Only vote for Curly&Candid if you read the blog, like the way I write and if you think you'd like to visit again". That's what (in my opinion) these awards should be about, not a popularity contest.
Thanks for reading folks x
At Curly&Candid you'll find anything from interior design, frugal living, the joys of working from home, food, technology, lifestyle, family, children and more. You may find posts about things I find amusing, things that make me cross and things that interest me. You will definitely find good humour.

Half term has flown by far too quickly. Tomorrow I'll be working "proper" office hours again and the boys will be back at school.
We've had a blast though...

Half term has gone so quickly with the boys back at school tomorrow. We've had a wonderful time though!

I was asked to visit the new Smiggle store in York. I didn't want to leave! It's a stationery and gift haven with a difference.

If like me you're a #bulletjournal fan you'll love these Maped 0.4mm fine point graph pens in red, blue, black and green (they write brilliantly in my Field Notes and colour code beautifully).

The simple reason why we love Black Friday so much is because we have the unrivaled opportunity to focus on winning new customers, which is normally not our top priority. You see, new customers are not easy – or cheap – to find and most online shops will arguably spend much of their efforts and budget …

Story
Tagline
Freelance Writer, Editor and Blogger
Introduction
I am a freelance writer, blogger and social media enthusiast who thoroughly enjoys her work. Juggling clients who need my copywriting services at a moments notice and my two young sons at the same time may be a challenge sometimes but I've never shied away from a good challenge!

Google+ for me is about interacting with new and interesting people and not simply about networking for professional reasons. I have got to know many people well via social media and the experience has broadened my circle of friends and acquaintances.

I've ordered numerous items from Precious Parcels (decorative wooden spoons, numerous plaques for home and as gifts, clocks, new baby gifts and assorted home decoration items) and have been incredibly pleased with the quality of each and every piece, as well as the quick delivery and careful (but not wasteful) packaging. New items are often uploaded and custom orders are welcomed which is great and I find the postage costs very reasonable. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Precious Parcels and will continue to buy from there myself.

Having used Floral Pride for a number of orders, both for myself and as special gifts for others I can honestly say 5 stars doesn't quite cut it. Rebecca has a unique way of putting together arrangements that are everything you wanted with extra magic on top. Every bouquet I've had has been beautifully arranged with obviously (floral) pride and full instructions given on their care. For bespoke and "off the shelf" arrangements packed with style, beauty and at a price which is more than affordable I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Floral Pride Ripon or Rebecca. Thanks, I will be ordering again!
