Ever find yourself getting lost on the internet? You know what I mean by ‘lost’, don’t you? Sitting down at 7pm to order the online food shop, only to realise it’s 10pm and you’re inadvertently researching ‘garden room ideas’ (my current obsession) on Pinterest. Or searching around from one site to another, looking for THE perfect gift for that one special person, leaving all the tabs open ‘just in case’ and then forgetting which one you were interested in in the first place. Sound familiar? There’s no doubt about it, the internet is the most incredible invention but boy can it be a time waster. If you’re already dreading the idea of finding a gift for that one person on your Christmas… View Post

It’s been a while since I wrote a chatty post but it’s halfway through summer, we’ve been on holiday, and I am feeling in need of a catch up. I love that a blog can be like an online diary (albeit one that the whole world can read!) and when I started blogging five years ago, that was my intention.

Running a small business herself (Little and Fierce which sells all kinds of kids’ accessories) Morgana is a massive advocate for small business owners and start ups. On her blog, you’ll find a link to her online shop as well as an… View Post

Remember those college days when you were given a summer reading list? Anyone else never read any of the books ‘cos they looked so unbelievably dull? Nowadays I love reading on holiday, in fact it’s probably one of the only times that I consistently read every day, devouring books like they are going out of fashion. I’m sure you will agree that there is nothing more disappointing than opening up a book that you’ve lugged halfway across the world, to find it’s one that you mistakenly *did* judge by its cover. In short: a dud. So I’ve put together a list, with the help of some fellow bloggers, of books that have been read and recommended. Obviously we don’t all… View Post
