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…

A Little Autumn Catch Up

[dropcap]M[/dropcap]y head has been awash with potential posts over the last few weeks, a sure sign that I’m long overdue a catch up on here Autumn is always such a busy time of year for me but I do love it. September signals the start of all things new and I’m so in love with the changes that nature brings…

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…
