Well yesterday was a pretty special day 🧡 We were invited to @ty_hafan to watch their Christmas pantomime 🎄 On the way there I felt so stressed about work and how much there is left to do, but visiting Ty Hafan really puts things into perspective. As soon as you walk in it’s like getting a huge warm hug (literally a lot of the time, because the staff are so lovely). We got to meet so many amazing people including Ruth Jones! We told her about the magazine, Barry Pride and how much we love our town, and she told us how much she loves it too 🧡 Ty Hafan is such a brilliant charity and we are so lucky to be able to support them 🌟 Also, how good is that Santa?!?
Thank you so much to @ty_hafan who invited us in for a performance of their Christmas pantomime this morning. It was brilliant to meet all the wonderful staff and supporters, Ruth Jones came to introduce the show and of course Santa made an appearance too! This year the charity has launched a £1.5 million ‘Fit For Future’ appeal so they can refurbish the hospice. If you can help support @ty_hafan make vital clinical adaptations to the hospice in Sully, please visit their website to donate now 🧡

As part of our Shop Local Barry page we’d like to introduce some of our brilliant shop owners in Barry, so you can get to know the faces behind the business! 💍 First up we have Jess from @wynterisabellebridal, a bridal shop on Park Crescent. Jess opened her bridal boutique, which is named after her daughter, in September 2016 on her 30th birthday! 🧡
If you’ve driven down Park Crescent you’ll have spotted Jess’ window displays. From her Pride display to Remembrance Sunday and now her current Gavin and Stacey themed Christmas window, they always get lots of comments. Jess says: ‘I want it to be memorable when you drive past, I try and hone in on what people are thinking about’ 🎄
Jess agrees that shopping locally is really important and we should be shouting about our shops in Barry. ‘We’ve got so much going on, we don’t need to leave to get things, it’s here on your doorstep’. ‘Barry is amazing, we have an amazing town and there’s so much rejuvenation, everything we need is here and everything we haven’t got is coming’

Proud of my brother he’s worked so hard and came a long way, I saw him grafting every day all evening in the dark, the rain, the brutal weather.
Great to see how far you have come ma man really turner this into a piece of art.
It was nowhere near this state when he bought it. He's built it himself! Can’t wait until we can see the before and after photos.
You made something of nothing, can't wait for another wrap or burger tomorrow. If you are from camp or the area I hope to see you there tomorrow to support him and his hard work.
He's a banging chef as well, you won't taste anything better! 🤤

Ensure you are the registered owner of your domain name. It’s not unusual for website designers to register domain names in under their business name, but this isn’t good practice, and you should ensure the domain is being registered in YOUR name from the outset.
There are a number of reasons why this is important, including:
1. You are in control of your website and you can move your site to another provider should you wish to.
2. You are responsible for renewing of your domain, so you can ensure it doesn’t expire (and consequently lose your website & its content!) and you don’t pay over the odds for domain renewals.
If you’re unsure if you own your domain, contact your web designer (or whoever registered your domain) and ask for proof of domain ownership. If you are not the owner, ask if they can move it over to your name. Be aware, they can refuse which is why you should make it clear from the beginning who will own the domain, but if they are willing to transfer to you, this can be done and can take around 60 days. It is FREE to change domain details, but they may charge an admin fee.
NOTE: All domains I register are in my clients names ONLY.
Who’s put their Christmas decorations up this weekend? 🎄🌟 We’ve been feeling festive and started thinking about what to wear this Christmas and New Year (Hannah more than Tom! 😂) Luckily we had a great photoshoot with @thebox.editboutique who gave us lots of tips for what’s on trend this winter and why we shouldn’t be scared of catwalk looks! 👖👗👜 We’ve used clothes and accessories from local shops including @jessrosevintage, @annieandlolo, @carrottopthreads and @on.10_ and searched charity shops and our own wardrobes too. Which is your favourite look? We’d love to know what you’ll be wearing! Click the link in our bio to read the full article.

A relationship is not what everyone thinks it is. It's not waking up early every morning to make breakfast and eating together. It's not cuddling in bed together until both of you peacefully fall asleep. It's not a clean home and a homemade meal every day.
It's someone who steals all the covers. It's sometimes slammed doors, and a few harsh words, disagreeing, and the silent treatment until your hearts heal. Then...forgiveness!
It's coming home to the same person everyday that you know loves and cares about you, in spite of and because of who you are. It's laughing about the one time you accidentally did something stupid. It's about dirty laundry and unmade beds without finger pointing. It's about helping each other with the hard work of life! It's about swallowing the nagging words instead of saying them out loud.
It's about eating the cheapest and easiest meal you can make and sitting down together at 10 p.m. to eat because you both had a crazy day in work and life.. It's when you have an emotional breakdown, and your love lays with you and holds you and tells you everything is going to be okay, and you believe them. It's when "Netflix and chill" literally means you watch Netflix and chill out. It's about still loving someone even though sometimes they make you absolutely insane.
Living with the person you love is not perfect, and sometimes it's hard, but it's amazing and comforting and one of the best things you'll ever experience.
Go ahead and share pictures of the person you love and copy and paste this, make their day. @jodie.hopkin 💚
**What Do You Expect?** .
What bugs me the most, is when someone has a bad experience and decides that in fact, that’s how herbalife is. .
Don’t get me wrong. I don’t lose any sleep over someone’s opinion. .
But it does hurt when something so great, can effect someone’s experiences of it.
You can stumbled on someone who didn’t know what they were doing as a coach. .
You can google search something and go with that view. .
But for those who understand, you all know how beautiful these products are 😎💚
