A VERY Long Overdue Winter Catch Up

My goodness have I got some explaining to do. I don’t think we caught up in autumn and here we are at the end of winter and already a good way into March! The good news? Spring is on its way. Having spotted more than a few daffodils already, I can confidently say that winter is ‘closed for business’. I’m…

8 Spring 2019 Wardrobe Essentials

I am writing this whilst staring at the driving rain, questioning whether I’ll *ever* be able to put my boots and scarves away. Whether we’re feeling it or not, it’s important to talk about spring because we enjoyed a little taster a few weeks ago and wasn’t it glorious? I can guarantee that you said at least once ‘I have…

A Room Update, Bare Ankles and Discovering the F Word #…

Hello world! I took a little hiatus from the blog and it felt good. Whilst it’s done nothing for my stats, it’s done everything for my mind and sometimes (all the time) that’s more important. But here I am at the end of February, not wanting to miss out on an opportunity to share the things I’ve been loving. Although…

At Home with: Lara from Adventures of a Mum

Today’s home owner is Lara Joanna Jarvis from Adventures of a Mum. Lara has been living in her current house for over 20 years; in fact she’s lived here since the tender age of 12. I imagine there has been a fair few makeovers during that time! You’ll notice quite quickly that Lara is a huge fan of IKEA so…

Discovering Luther, My First Trip to Birmingham and a Hint …

Hello there my friends, I hope this post finds you well. If you are new to my blog then you may not be familiar with my ‘Little Loves’ posts but basically, on the last Friday of every month, I share some of the things that have been cheering me up this month. As my ‘one word’ for the year is…

At Home With: Hayley from Devon Mama

We’re back! I love nothing better than having a nosey around people’s homes, don’t you? For this reason, I’m determined to feature a new home every month in 2019. I have a really eclectic mix lined up which I’m rather excited about. If you’re a fan of modern, clean lines with a splash of colour, you will adore January’s featured home.…

Twinkly Lights, Even More Podcasts and My New Favourite Outfit #…

I know, I know, I’m six days late and it’s no longer December. I should have posted December’s Little Loves post last Friday but guess what? I was stuck in the ‘Chrimbo Limbo’ fog, the same way that you were. As my word for 2019 is ‘Gratitude’ and these monthly round up posts fit in really well with this theme,…

On Being an Inconsistent Blogger

You know this of course but I love blogging and hazard a guess that I always will. I rarely stick at anything but this is a hobby that I find enjoyable, inspiring, therapeutic and as if that weren’t enough, it scratches my creative itch too. Despite being an avid blogger for six years now, consistency is not my forte. I…

Chocolatey Goodness, Sparkly Jumpers and Inspiring Podcasts #LittleLoves

I’ve been fairly absent on my blog this month and whilst there’s no real need for me to apologise (it is my blog after all) I’m going to anyway. Sometimes, when life is a bit tricky, I find it difficult to get my thoughts together and focusing on writing feels fairly impossible. I’ve missed it though – putting finger to…
