Are You Ever Too Old for a Pink Bedroom?

At the age of 16, both my girls have requested a bedroom makeover as their birthday present. This request is generally made every five years, when tastes have changed and bedrooms have been suitably trashed. When this particular daughter requested a blush pink bedroom with a dark blue feature wall, I had my reservations: Is 16 too old for a…

Celebrating, Enjoying the Silence and Thinking about Christmas #LittleLoves

Can you believe it’s November already? Quite scary how fast this year is zipping by. My month of craziness has been and gone so I’m intending to spend November getting excited about Christmas and planning ahead. I am determined to enjoy Christmas this year, rather than endure it. Stress tends to sap the joy out of it for me so…

10 Big Fashion Tips for Small People

If we’ve met in real life then you will know that I’m vertically challenged (another way of saying I’m a short arse). I come from a long line of short people; in fact at 5 ft 2.5, I’m one of the tallest females in my family – go figure! I can’t tell you how pleased I was when high street…

Birthday Bubbles, Davina and Nipping the ‘O’ Word in the …

Despite my best efforts to have a relaxing half term, I seem to have spent most of it being a taxi driver to my offspring. In fact I don’t think we’ve managed one lazy day all week; I definitely wouldn’t profess to feeling recharged! One week isn’t long enough is it? It was my birthday at the weekend so we…

Tell me I’m not the only person out there who obsesses about something forever before actually buying it? I’ve analysed myself with regard to this little ‘quirk’ and have come to the conclusion that it’s a healthy way to be.

October Craziness, Snuggly Jumpers and Birthday Fun #LittleLoves

I think I told you a few weeks back that October was destined to be a month of craziness? Well it certainly hasn’t disappointed so far! Why is it that everything seems to come at once? October has always been one of my favourite months, not least because my birthday appears in the middle (today in fact) but also because…

At Home With…Rachel {The Ordinary Lovely}

This month’s ‘At Home With…’ features someone whose home I’ve read about and admired for around five years now. I started following (NB ‘following’ should not be confused with stalking) her when she lived in Switzerland and then journeyed with her back to Blighty. Rachel’s home has such a distinctive, modern style. I can spot her Instagram home shots a mile…

All You Need to Know About Invisalign Braces

Should I get my teeth fixed? Do Invisalign braces really work? Will people think I’m self-obsessed? If you’ve been going backwards and forwards over the above questions, then you’ve come to the right place. When I began researching the idea of invisible braces, I could not find the answers I was looking for. Before parting with such a substantial amount…

Sunshine, Chocolatey Goodness and a Trip to Brighton #LittleLoves 

I am actually writing this week’s Little Loves on Thursday because in about 30 minutes, I’ll be flying out of the door for 24 hours. Tonight I’m off to Brighton to celebrate with Katie aka Hurrah for Gin, at her book launch party. I can’t wait! Don’t know who Hurrah for Gin is? Well she wrote a blog, then she…

At Home With…Sarah {Mum of Three World}

This month’s ‘At Home With…’ post features one of the first bloggers I ever reached out to. I came across Sarah’s blog about five years ago, when I embarked on my own journey into the world of over-sharing. I was hooked immediately. Sarah’s children are a similar age to mine (although different sexes) and her husband also owns and runs…

Making Progress, Supermarket Bargains and a New Arrival #LittleLoves

I wasn’t going to post today but Friday wouldn’t be Friday without some Little Loves, would it? You see this week has kind of run away with me; I simply cannot believe that we’re heading into the third week in September already. The ankle boots came out this week folks. Anyone else cracked open the autumn wardrobe? Anyway, let’s get…
