  • All You Need to Know About Invisalign Braces

    Should I get my teeth fixed? Do Invisalign braces really work? Will people think I’m self-obsessed? If you’ve been going backwards and forwards over the above questions, then you’ve come to the right place. When I began researching the idea of invisible braces, I could not find the answers I was looking for. Before parting with such a substantial amount…

    Sunshine, Chocolatey Goodness and a Trip to Brighton #LittleLoves 

    I am actually writing this week’s Little Loves on Thursday because in about 30 minutes, I’ll be flying out of the door for 24 hours. Tonight I’m off to Brighton to celebrate with Katie aka Hurrah for Gin, at her book launch party. I can’t wait! Don’t know who Hurrah for Gin is? Well she wrote a blog, then she…

    How I Overcame FOMO (then got it back again)

    [dropcap]T[/dropcap]wice in the last fortnight, people have looked at me quizzically when I’ve mentioned the term FOMO. Now come on people, if I’m 45 (almost 46) and know what FOMO means then surely you do? ‘Fear of Missing Out’ is the direct translation, basically referring to the fear that grips you when you think that you might be missing out…

    We Just Don’t ‘Do’ Being Ill

    [dropcap]W[/dropcap]e are never ill in our house. When I say ‘never’ you know what I mean – never ill enough to have a day off work or stay home from school. We just don’t ‘do’ being ill. I will never forget that one year when all three of my children won an award for 100% attendance at school. I wasn’t…

    Popping My Primark Cherry, Missing and a Confession #LittleLoves

    [dropcap]I[/dropcap]t’s the end of another week and what a cold, wet miserable one it has been. To top it off, we’ve had a sore-throat/cold doing the rounds here. Having valiantly fought it off for the last 10 days, I think I’ve finally succumbed as the throat of razor blades is refusing to budge. Every week without fail I get towards…

    At Home With…Sarah {Mum of Three World}

    [dropcap]T[/dropcap]his month’s ‘At Home With…’ post features one of the first bloggers I ever reached out to. I came across Sarah’s blog about five years ago, when I embarked on my own journey into the world of over-sharing. I was hooked immediately. Sarah’s children are a similar age to mine (although different sexes) and her husband also owns and runs…

    Making Progress, Supermarket Bargains and a New Arrival #LittleLoves

    I wasn’t going to post today but Friday wouldn’t be Friday without some Little Loves, would it? You see this week has kind of run away with me; I simply cannot believe that we’re heading into the third week in September already. The ankle boots came out this week folks. Anyone else cracked open the autumn wardrobe? Anyway, let’s get…

    The Bedroom Makeover

    When we first moved into our home ten years ago, the previous owners had kindly left behind various items that they knew wouldn’t suit their new pad: blinds, curtains, light fittings. We had every intention of replacing said items in time, but with three children of 6, 4 and 2, we were thankful for anything that made the second move…

    A Trip to London, Reminiscing and a New Addition #LittleLoves

    I love the start of a new school year; there’s just the right amount of nervous excitement floating around to help me kick start some new ideas. For the benefit of my husband who is probably panicking at this point…I’m not planning any major changes, just a few tweaks to my usual lifestyle! How about you? Are you planning any…
