Rediscovering Old Haunts, Epic Dramas and a Gingham Tablecloth #LittleLoves

[dropcap]S[/dropcap]o I gave us all a little break last week and have subsequently decided that it’s better for everyone concerned if I only join in with Little Loves once a fortnight from now. I get a chance to actually do something worth sharing and you get more interesting content to read. Win/win! Since my last post, I’ve been on a…

Slogan T-Shirts (for the slightly more mature)

As you all know, April is a ‘No New Clothes’ month for me. You mean you didn’t know? Where’ve you been? If you follow me on social media, you will be all too aware that it’s kind of killing me. Don’t get me wrong, I don’t have a wardrobe exploding with new clothes; I think it’s more to do with that age…

Growing Up, Embracing the Dress and Justin Timberlake #LittleLoves

Have you been enjoying the sunshine this week? I realised yesterday that we haven’t had any rain at all over the Easter holidays – I reckon that’s a first! The amazing temperatures at the weekend got me panicking thinking about our summer holiday which after much deliberation, I finally booked this week. I think we’ve made a good decision. Apologies…

Summer Bag Anyone?

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…

Room, Spring Flowers and a Confession #LittleLoves 

Today I come bearing Spring flowers. Why? Because it’s almost the weekend and I’m jetting off to the Alps for a few days tomorrow. Yippee! I should really be getting my house in order and sorting out the washing but I’ve begun to relish this part of my week –  looking back and focussing on the good bits, however small or insignificant. So here…

A New Diet, Unforgotten and All the Pastels #LittleLoves

I don’t know where this week has gone (mostly frittered away on the phone to Virgin mobile but hey, that’s a long and boring story that no one wants to hear!). I’ve been trying to get on top of my paperwork this week which hasn’t been hugely successful but I have at least applied for a new driver’s licence. Tell…

A New Season, Pretty Frills and Some Great TV #LittleLoves

I naively thought that as the calendar tipped into March, we would see the arrival of Spring; by that, I mean warmer climes. Sadly this week I’ve braved one too many baltic dog walks and my beautiful pastel Adidas trainers that I bought last week remain firmly in my wardrobe. Come on Spring, we are so ready for you! We all know that I will probably…

5 Things That I Am Too Old For (but will be …

Confession: I am 45 years old and have no idea who I am any more. That got your attention didn’t it? Ok I’m exaggerating a little but somewhere in between teaching 3 children to poop on the toilet (instead of the floor) and getting them all successfully enrolled in secondary school, I’ve lost my way a little. I’m bored of wearing the school…

Cosy Nights, Winter Soups and a New Page Turner #LittleLoves

Welcome to Friday! It’s been a quiet kind of week my end with nothing amazing to report. Sometimes those weeks are a blessing aren’t they? I’ve been practicing my One Word for this year which is ‘Release‘ by purchasing fleecy PJs and allowing myself to cosy up of an evening. Perfect for all this snow that was forecast (*cough* what snow?!). Ooh, I’ve…
