As I mentioned in my last post I'm starting a new series of dating blogs on my blog. I've been single now around 4 years and it's safe to say dating has definitely changed since I was younger. It's much more difficult but also in a way feel like women do have a lot more control of dating.

So I'm sure everyone is already aware that the Summer holidays are upon us, schools have kicked out, exams are finished and prom season is now underway. Proms and weddings are two of the most difficult occasions I find to dress for. It's not everyday you need to do Hollywood glamour! It doesn't help especially with weddings all the rules and unwritten no go's that every guest must abide by. I have two very simple tips which I think may help as a starting point to point you in the right direction of smashing any event you may be attending over the next few weeks!

So as you all know I've recently moved house and these past 8 months have absolutely flown by. Home improvements, homeware and even cleaning ave become an obsession. I've been very lucky when moving as I moved into a brand new home so it's been very easy to put a stamp in my own kind of way, that's one of the great things with a new build they are like a blank canvas. I'm still a very long way off where I'd like by house to be but that's the beauty of home renovation it's a journey not a race.

Many of us consider ourselves spiritual, but not religious. We don’t go to church, and we don’t necessarily sign up to the ideas of any particular religious group or organisation, but we nonetheless believe that there’s more to life than what we can see.

But what can we do to improve our spiritual health, if we don’t have a religious institution to tell us what to do?

Cardiff is the largest city in Wales, as well as being the capital, so naturally, it’s also one of the most popular cities for tourists to visit. Along with its shopping centres and historic attractions, there are many things to attract visitors to Cardiff. Here are a few reasons why you’re going to want to book a weekend there some time soon...

Cardiff Castle

Cardiff Castle has been used for a Roman Garrison, a Norman Stronghold and a Gothic Fantasy Palace. A tour of the castle is amazing in itself but why not take one of their Ghost Tours, Meet the Knights or attend the Grand Medieval Melee? These are all extra events put on at the castle that can let you see it from a different perspective.

Historic Pub Tour

There are organised tours around the historic pubs of the city, and there are quite a few of them all with their own story to tell a weary traveller like yourself. You can hear the tales from centuries ago celebrating the people of Wales.

Eating Out

Cardiff has no shortage of places to eat at while you are out and about, but some of them are a bit special. Of course, a lot depends on the type of food you are after, but for instance, if you want to eat at one of the best burger places in the UK then visit The Grazing Shed at one of its four Cardiff locations. Seriously, sometimes simple foods are the best and this is just one example of that being totally true.

Make Some Pots

Cardiff Pottery Workshops will assist you to make a pot or two. Learn how to handle the clay, what you need to do to be creative and how to finish your pots. The courses are usually a day, or you can just visit the potteries to watch the masters at work.

Sculpture Trail

The Sculpture Trail is designed to help connect children with nature as they follow the sculptures through the woodlands. There is a story attached to them and also mystical creatures and a wizard to look for.


Cardiff has 8 museums to choose from including the National Museum at the heart of the city. Much of this museum is dedicated to the history and evolution of Wales and the Welsh people are very proud of it.

The others are dedicated to a variety of different things, and every one them is worth a visit.


No visit to a city such as Cardiff would be complete without some sightseeing. There is hop on hop off open-topped buses, the full journey on which can take most of a day. 

Among the sights to visit are Mermaid Quay, Roath Park, St David’s Cathedral, the Principality Stadium, Cardiff Bay and Bute Park.

There are so many things to do in Cardiff that it is impossible to list them all here. I have tried to pick some of the most popular and some of the more unusual so that you have some ideas for your trip to Cardiff, but be sure to explore the city to its fullest.

So I've been single for a while now and you constantly hear the same things from your coupled up friends, have you tried this app? Are you registered on this website? Now whilst I agree (and slightly saddened by it) most of the dating is being instigated by online dating websites.

Okay so this may be the way to meet my prince charming but how much is this going to cost me? Signing up to every website is going to cost me an arm and a leg but why? One thing I've never understood with online dating is that you're paying someone to match you up with a partner with similar interests. Now when I think back every partner I've had have we had similar interests? Not really but it did give us things to talk about, different hobbies and maybe even opened our eyes to new interests. Are we really limiting ourselves by being paired with people who are the same as us?

I also have a huge issue with these paid websites matching you up with people with the same hobbies and interests but what about conversation starters? Are they taking all that away from us from the word go? How do you find out about your potential match's favourite food or what they do on a Saturday morning when the company you've just paid your weeks wages to has already told you all of that? I want to be able to ask questions find out for myself not pick tick boxes online.

I've tried every form of website, app, blind dates and I've come to conclusion dating is hard, it's difficult and dating websites have tapped into that. But are they taking the fun away from dating in the first place? Are they putting pressure on us to find that "perfect person"? In short, I do they think they are. For me free dating sites are the way forward.

I want to be able to find someone who also wants to ask me those questions such as favourite foods, eat in or take away, where did my shoe obsession start etc so why pay a computer to do that for me? We've begun to rely so heavily on technology (which is great is some aspects) but are we taking the romance out of the first dates? Those awkward conversations, the excitement, the realisation that maybe those soppy films you like could actually be shared with the hunk of a man across the table as secretly he's a bit soppy (even though his profile claimed he was a lad's lad of course!)

I've recently found this great website which allows you to meet people free using this free dating site

Surely we should be taking advantage of all these amazing free sites in order to meet people and not waste a crazy amount of money registering for lots of different computers to do all the fun parts of dating for us!

What are your opinions on paying for dating? I'd love to hear your dating stories or any great tips you have with meeting new people and be sure to let me know if you check out the website :)
