Last Sunday was declared the hottest day of the year so far (not hard considering it’s only April). I’m sure I wasn’t the only Brit airing their milk bottle legs for the first time in about 6 months. I’m also pretty certain I wasn’t the only one staring at a rather scarlet reflection in the mirror later on that evening. Will we ever learn? Summer is on its way. Like me, I imagine you’re now wishing that you had taken better care of your skin over the winter months, whilst hastily researching every step-by-step guide to a bikini body (if you find one that still involves eating and drinking wine, then please let me know). Unlike me, I imagine you booked your family summer break months ago and have been excitedly dreaming of… View Post

April might be a self-declared ‘No New Clothes’ month but no one said anything about accessories now did they? So this month I will be having a little nosey around the internet (one of my favourite past-times) in search of a few gems that I will willingly share with you lovely lot. Bags, I’m obsessed with them. I have a bag for pretty much every occasion and each item of footwear in my possession. I think long and hard about what I need from said bag before purchasing, and usually invest in something that will last me a while. Right now? I have no summer bag and I’m starting to stress a little about it. I’m certain that the internet knows… View Post

You know, I *almost* decided not to share a Little Loves post this week. I’ve been having a bit of a pity party of late, wondering what my blog has to offer the world but so many of you said that you love my conversational style and in particular these weekly posts, so here I am! I want to thank anyone who took the time to comment on that post, because it really gave me a fresh boost of energy and enthusiasm. Writing a blog is sometimes hard, especially if you can see 250 people have viewed your post but no bug*** has bothered to leave a comment. Is anyone even enjoying it? Well yes they are! So thank you. Hasn’t it been beautiful… View Post

I’ve been struggling lately, trying to work out what to post on here. But you probably knew that already. I moved away from my family lifestyle blog (of 4 years) for various reasons and last week I finally re-routed the URL to land directly here instead. But 6 months in and I’ve kind of come unstuck. Have I fallen out of love with blogging? No. I think my biggest problem is that I’m constantly trying to figure out what I have to offer that isn’t already out there. Comparison. It’s an ugly word, right? It’s the thief of all joy and I’ve let it sneak up and bite me on the bum. I’ve lost confidence on social media (not helped by my teenage daughter… View Post

Here we are again, on the cusp of the weekend and another week down. Since I last wrote on this here blog, I’ve been to the Alps and back. I’ve also experienced snow, sunshine, rain and freezing fog. No wonder I’m having trouble working out what season we are in! Either way, Spring we are so ready for you – please stop hibernating. Here are all of the things I’ve been loving this week – be warned, it’s a little snow/ski heavy! Read I’m a creature of habit and one of the things I like to do, is buy a Red magazine every time I go on holiday. So I’ve devoured the April edition of Red this week and found many… View Post
