Best Makeup Products for 40+ Women, Recommended by 40+ Women

[dropcap]M[/dropcap]y skin changed when I turned 40 (probably a few years before actually, but who’s counting?) and so did my priorities. Above all else, I began to understand the benefit of spending a little more money on the right products. Where to start? I think I lost my way a bit with makeup when my children were small. Whilst I’ve…

At Home With…Pamela from Life with Munchers

[dropcap]I[/dropcap]’ve been looking forward to sharing this month’s home with you since I first made contact with the owner – Pamela from Life With Munchers. Having admired her home for some time across social media, I was excited to see more. It’s situated right at the other end of the UK to me, high up in the Scottish hills. Pam…

2017: The Year I Learned to Let Go

[dropcap]T[/dropcap]he guests have gone, the decorations are down, it’s time to contemplate 2017. For the last five years, I’ve been kicking a new year off with the help of a workbook called Unravel Your Year by Susannah Conway. For someone who likes to reflect and plan, it’s an excellent tool that I would highly recommend. Before considering the new year…

Festive Creations, Cosy Knits and the Best Film I’ve …

Anyone know what day it is? I honestly don’t think I’ve had any idea for the last two weeks. I’m still undecided as to whether that means I’m totally relaxed or finally losing it! Answers on a postcard… I’ve been storing up this month’s Little Loves for some time because it’s been such a busy one. December is hectic, stressful…

Avoiding Bingo Wings with Namaste Yoga {Review & Giveaway}

I threw out a question on Twitter the other day, one that I think many of us would like to know the answer to: ‘Is there any way of avoiding bingo wings?‘ I mean it’s an important question, right? Sadly it was met with silence, other than one helpful tweeter who suggested yoga as being her absolute saviour in the…

2017: My Year in Numbers

[dropcap]I[/dropcap]n case you hadn’t realised, we are almost at the end of another year. Each year seems to go by at a faster pace as I get older. Perhaps it’s something to do with realising that every moment needs to be cherished – time flies when you’re having fun eh? What a year it’s been. If you’ve been following me…

At Home With…Steph {Steph’s Two Girls}

There really is nothing better than watching a complete house renovation unfold. I said ‘watching’ not ‘experiencing’! Steph and her family bought their home in 2016 but only moved in earlier this year. Although not quite finished, Steph has kindly allowed us a sneaky peek into their gorgeous 1930s home. Who lives in your home? I live with my husband…

Bad Moms, Christmas Markets and an Advent Fail #LittleLoves

[dropcap]I [/dropcap]decided a while ago to pull back from writing a Little Loves post at the end of every week. It was slowly becoming a chore rather than a pleasure and finding the time to read (and make) something every week was adding to the pressure of an already busy life. The new plan is to write a post at…

Staying Cosy in Winter with LOTD

[dropcap]I[/dropcap] remember announcing to my sister-in-law that I was going skiing for the first time and she almost fell off her chair: “But you hate the cold!” She’s right, I do hate the cold, but over the years I’ve made it my mission to find ways to keep warm in winter. I regularly wear leggings or thermals under my jeans…
