Monthly Roundup | May

It's coming to the end of May, however it literally feels like 5 minutes ago when I was writing my April Monthly Roundup, for me this month has been a complete whirlwind & has passed in no time at all!
Even though I've been really busy, the majority of I've been doing is the most mind numbing boring tasks, which I know you don't want to read about - However, there has been three pretty amazing things happen this month though in the world of xclaireabella...

We went on holiday!

After not having a getaway break since this time last year, we decided a holiday was exactly what the Doctor ordered. We found an excellent late deal on Hoseasons for a 4 night stay at Griffon Forest Lodges in York. It was amazing just to relax & get away from it all - No internet, no phones - It's was exactly what we needed... The hot tub was just a bonus!

We got a puppy!

Say hello to our beautiful girl, Willow! We've always wanted a puppy for as long as we both can remember & now she's here it's absolutely amazing. Willow's just over 9 weeks old & has brought so much laughter & excitement to our lives, I love waking up & seeing her pounce over with that 'I'm an excitable puppy' look in her eyes - It's just the best!

We got the keys to our new home!

Gahhh - This has been such an annoyingly long time coming! We've been saving our deposit for a house now for three years, which is long enough but with the mortgage application taking an extra twelve weeks it's been so time consuming & draining. Now it's finally here though we've got that last slog this weekend of moving everything from our flat to the house. Wish us luck!! (Images are to follow as the house looks like a bombs gone off at the moment! There's stuff everywhere & we're literally living out of cardboard boxes - It's all fun and games though!)

Because of the move it'll probably take a little while for xclaireabella to get fully up an running again - But I'll be back! I'm even thinking of having a schedule! Woooaahh!

Lots of love | Claireabella.x


  1. Super exciting news on the house front! Willow is just so adorable! May definitely passed by too quickly. xxx - natural beauty, affordable fashion, everyday life

    1. Thanks Gabby, it definitely was. Last minute trips always feel so much better I reckon. I love the spontaneity of them. Aw, thank you! She's gorgeous isn't she... A little bugger at times, but she's got a face you can't stay mad at. X

  4. Awww Willow is so cute. We adopted out dog and I do love him but I really feel like I missed out on all those puppy moments. Enjoy it whilst she's still small! What sort of dog is she?
    Love Hayley,

    1. She's gorgeous isn't she! :-) Aww. The puppy stages are cool (toilet training not so much) She's a lemon beagle :-) Soooo adorable! X

  5. Looks like you've had quite a busy month! Your trip looked so fun, great post hun!
