Last weekend, I caught the last half an hour of It’s a Wonderful Life. It’s one of my favourite Christmas films. A true nostalgic classic that always reminds me of family Christmases when I was younger. Starring James Stewart, Donna Reed and Henry Travers as Clarence Odbody, it is a heart-warming tale, even in those...Read More
I have never really been a wearer of black. For as long as I can remember I would always opt for colour and print over dark and gloomy. I wouldn’t say my wardrobe is overly colourful, but I do love pastel and blush, neutral tones. In fact, I don’t think I even own a black...Read More
New Year, New You! It’s the tired time old mantra we all love to hate, but just can’t help but give into. January is, and always has been, the month most of us choose to devote to self-help and self-love. It’s the time we strive to get our lives in order. Going for that promotion...Read More

During our first meeting of 2016 I proposed to the team that this would be a year of consolidation. I promised not to come up with too many new ideas and I think I saw a few eyes flicker in disbelief. The Semple team had some great achievements in 2015. One example, our magazine Semple...Read More
When it comes to staying organised, my phone is the first thing I turn to. As we all know, apps have become so much more advanced over the last few years and app-developers are constantly developing app ideas that will help our every day lives. I can be a bit of a tech-geek when I want...Read More
