A Little Memory


Memories are possibly one of the best parts of our existence. Not only do we get to do amazing things, have amazing people in our lives and reach our dreams, but we get to re-live them anytime we want. Tappin’ back into that memory store to gain that certain part of your existence is not only a great reminder of a time, but it pushes you to make amazing new ones to remember further along the line. As let’s be honest if life aint here to be enjoyed and remembered then you’re havin’ a pretty crappy time!

Every year(or even everyday) the memories that are made bring you one step forward in creating a significant life for yourself. Whether these memories be the good or the bad it’s something we all hold deep within. No matter your circumstance this is the one true and valued thing that we all can gain for free. However, for some of us the continuum of creating these memories can be rapidly cut short and for those people I feel truly sorry. Don’t get me wrong this isn’t a pitiful feeling of sorrow, but one of genuine hurt, as every life is different and we all follow our path but some come to a cross road in which will ultimately end their journey sooner rather than later. We all know and understand that life is a gift that can be taken away at any moment, but imagine you we’re to grow in the knowledge that you wouldn’t even possibly reach your teens? It’s seriously unimaginable. Death at any age is the horrible aspect of life, but for those who haven’t or won’t even get to reach any significant milestone, it’s beyond thinking about. Such brave souls who inspire us with their strength day by day, need that place to have their downtime. Say hello to Little Havens Care Hospice, based in Essex and providing amazing care for youngsters who don’t expect to reach adulthood life. Little Havens gives these amazing, and brave may I add, children the space in which to bond with those alike whilst their guardians gain some time to themselves.



Everyone needs a break and everyone needs someone in life to relate to. These can be friends, acquaintances or simply someone who smiles at you in the street, but if Little Haven can provide this relationship of people and an amazing environment then bravo to them! The world needs more people and organisations like Little Haven, as makin’ memories for anyone in life, no matter how lengthy it may be is an absolute must. In dedication to those memories the amazing Solopress created a little gem of a memory book for me. Showcasing old photo’s of times, loved ones and more, it allowed me to have something there to flick on through to transport me to those happy memories. If your like me and love to document your life(er, hello I’m a blogger) then be sure to check them out. With amazing variations of print from calendar’s to cards and more, Solopress can print for any need! And with this in mind please read the below….

Right, now this is how you lovely people can help- Pick that amazin’ memory photo of your own. It can be with family, friends or even your dog, but put that memory on Twitter, state why you chose this and hashtag #alittlememory. You may ask why? But for every tweet hashtagged, Solopress will donate a pound to the amazing Little Havens care hospice to keep those children smiling and experiencing the exciting times ahead. Seems worthy of your time now, right?

To kick start the campaign the lovely people at Solopress sent a box of memorable goodies. From a memory book of our own, a lovely five year diary and a selfie stick for those hard to reach photo’s, I was all set to documenting my busy life.

A sneaky peek at some of my memories; from my friends and family to events and more.


This diary is an actual treat. Allowing me to write daily containing little snippets of my day or interesting things I’ve learnt so that I can look back and remember just how amazing life seriously is. So, when I’m havin’ one of those down days where you mope and think you’ve got it bad, I think of the diary and it’s meaning and realise that life is seriously what you make of it.

                                            Always remember: Make each day count!

    I have a memory box, but I do it over the year and then open it on new years eve to remind myself of how awesome the year has been.

    What a lovely idea! I'm a huge fan of scrap booking and memory boxes. My grandma has alzheimers and I know how much it hurt to lose her memory for her and for our family. It's made me think about how much I want to be able to look back on things and also to show my children/grandchildren!

    This is such a lovely idea, I always keep a little memory box but never put any photos in there because they just stay on my computer. I'd love to make more of an effort to get photos printed and look over them more often x
