The Cruising Life, Incredible Views and a Celebration #LittleLoves

It really feels like summer is drawing to a close doesn’t it? I can’t believe the difference between those glorious, steaming hot days at the beginning of August to the shorter, unseasonably cooler days we’ve been experiencing this week. Before we get all maudlin about not being ready for winter boots and long sleeves, let’s look back on August. It’s…

At Home With : Jo at Number 26

Welcome back to another instalment of my ‘At Home With…’ series. If you’re a blogger or Instagram fanatic then you may well know Jo as ‘Not a Frumpy Mum’. The thing that you might not know, is that Jo recently stopped blogging and changed her Instagram handle to ‘Jo at Number 26‘ – something that suits her love for home…

Summer Bunting, Facing Fears and a Broadway Show #LittleLoves

[dropcap]I[/dropcap] seem to begin every monthly Little Loves post by talking about the weather but it would be rude to bypass this one – this summer is the gift that keeps on giving! I cannot believe how fortunate we have been with the sunshine and tropical temperatures. It also looks set to carry on into the first half of the…

At Home With: Molly {Mother’s Always Right}

[dropcap]O[/dropcap]ne of the many things I love about running a series on this blog, is introducing you all to new bloggers. Molly isn’t a new blogger at all, in fact in blogger terms she’s probably a veteran! Aside from being a blogger, Molly is a journalist and mum to two little girls. She lives with her family in south Devon…

The Five Most Worn Items in My Summer Wardrobe

[dropcap]I[/dropcap]’ve talked about this before on the blog but when my children were small, I kind of lost myself a little bit. Waist deep in nappies and CBeebies for the best part of 10 years, I didn’t have much time for myself as my priorities were very much focused on my young family. Just for the record, I wouldn’t have…

Pink Denim, Soaking up the Rays and a Trip to …

[dropcap]W[/dropcap]hat a month June has been. I mean I’ve had to pinch myself on numerous occasions, is this really England and not the mediterranean? Our garden room really has come into its own this month, especially with the Word Cup being on. The space and big TV has made it a popular choice for 13 year old boys! I’ve also…

At Home With: Kerri-Ann {Life as Our Little Family}

[dropcap]I[/dropcap]’ve been longing to share this month’s home with you because I’ve caught snippets on social media and couldn’t wait to see more. Although my home style is very modern with clean lines, that doesn’t mean I can’t admire other styles. In fact one day I would love to move back into a house with a bit of character. Our…

5 Things I’m Looking Forward to this Summer

[dropcap]D[/dropcap]o you ever get those days when you feel a bit flat? Actually I defy anyone to tell me that they don’t have days like that. Thankfully they are just that – days. They never go on for long (especially when the sun is shining) but one of the key things that I do on days like this, is make…

Learning a Lesson with Made to Last

*This is a collaborative post* [dropcap]W[/dropcap]e’ve bought some ‘clangers’ during our married life. The enormous sofa that looked fabulous in the showroom but filled (literally) half the living room once in our home. Not forgetting the ridiculously expensive, not at-all-blackout-as-promised blinds, that I was talked into purchasing during a home sales visit. Let’s just say that we’ve got better and…
