  • 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…

    At Home With…Laura { Dear Bear and Beany}

    [dropcap]A[/dropcap]nother month, another home to have a nosey around. This month it’s a new build, so if you’re likely to get properly jealous of a crisp, clean, beautifully tidy house, then look away now! Laura and her family moved into their home last year and clearly adore it. In the style of Sir David Frost (or Keith Lemon if you prefer)…

    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…

    10 Big Fashion Tips for Small People

    [dropcap]I[/dropcap]f we’ve met in real life then you will know that I’m vertically challenged (another way of saying I’m a short arse). I come from a long line of short people; in fact at 5 ft 2.5, I’m one of the tallest females in my family – go figure! I can’t tell you how pleased I was when high street…

    Birthday Bubbles, Davina and Nipping the ‘O’ Word in the …

    [dropcap]D[/dropcap]espite my best efforts to have a relaxing half term, I seem to have spent most of it being a taxi driver to my offspring. In fact I don’t think we’ve managed one lazy day all week; I definitely wouldn’t profess to feeling recharged! One week isn’t long enough is it? It was my birthday at the weekend so we…

    Why You Need a Cross Body Bag in Your Life

    [dropcap]T[/dropcap]ell me I’m not the only person out there who obsesses about something forever before actually buying it? I’ve analysed myself with regard to this little ‘quirk’ and have come to the conclusion that it’s a healthy way to be. Let me explain… Firstly, there is no money wastage because I know that I will definitely get a lot of…

    October Craziness, Snuggly Jumpers and Birthday Fun #LittleLoves

    I think I told you a few weeks back that October was destined to be a month of craziness? Well it certainly hasn’t disappointed so far! Why is it that everything seems to come at once? October has always been one of my favourite months, not least because my birthday appears in the middle (today in fact) but also because…

    At Home With…Rachel {The Ordinary Lovely}

    [dropcap]T[/dropcap]his month’s ‘At Home With…’ features someone whose home I’ve read about and admired for around five years now. I started following (NB ‘following’ should not be confused with stalking) her when she lived in Switzerland and then journeyed with her back to Blighty. Rachel’s home has such a distinctive, modern style. I can spot her Instagram home shots a mile…
