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…

Wisteria Heaven, Embracing the Sunshine and THAT Wedding #LittleLoves

[dropcap]H[/dropcap]onestly, the month of May has whizzed by so fast. We’ve celebrated an 18th birthday, nursed a broken finger (same person), survived the start of GCSEs and soaked up every drop of sunshine. Let’s take a moment to appreciate the amazing weather we’ve been having. Please tell me this is not the beginning and end of our summer! It’s been…

At Home With : Elena Cid {Loved By Elena}

[dropcap]O[/dropcap]ne of the things I love about my ‘At Home With…’ series is that every house we get to nosey around is unique and the interior gives a real flavour of who the owner is. This month’s home is owned by Elena who writes a popular lifestyle blog, Loved by Elena, and it is completely different from any of the…

Adding Bold Colours to a Neutral Living Room

[dropcap]I[/dropcap] always knew there was a good reason why I gave my blog a generic title like Inside, Outside and Beyond – I can write about mental health one week and brightly coloured cushions the next! Our living room/lounge/sitting room, has always been on the cusp of looking un-homely. With wooden floors, grey walls, pale grey leather sofas and white wooden…

5 Favourite Finds // April 2018 (& Giveaway)

The last time I wrote a post like this was almost a year ago. I’m not sure why I stopped doing them but suspect it might have something to do with my ongoing distraction issues. I love watching ‘Monthly Favourites’ type videos on You Tube (Brummy Mummy of 2, Katie Ellison and The Anna Edit being some of my most…

A Gripping New Read, Preparing for Summer and Some Exciting …

[dropcap]A[/dropcap]pril, you’ve been an interesting month – weeks of torrential rain, then a sneaky bit of sunshine to trick us into thinking summer has come early. I can’t begin to explain how this has messed with my wardrobe planning! Anyway, enough of that; I think I start every Little Loves post with banal chatter about the weather. Have you come…

Review of the SkinBase Microdermabrasion Facial

I like to think that I am pretty okay with the extra grey hairs and fine(ish) lines that seemed to appear overnight once I hit 40. Back to reality, they are often the first thing I see when I look in the mirror and not in a good way. I swing between trying to keep myself looking as youthful as possible…
