I’ve got a spare hour and what better way to spend it, than reflecting on my week and pulling out the positives? I’ve been suffering from muscle spasms in my neck and shoulders this week. Whilst it’s not the end of the world, it has been a tad debilitating and I’ve spent a little bit of time feeling sorry for myself. BUT (there’s always a but) my lovely friend popped by with a beautiful scented candle and a heat patch for my neck on Wednesday morning, and on Monday I got to watch four back to back episodes of Gilmore Girls instead of going to work. You see, there is ALWAYS something to be thankful for! What else has happened in my world? On… View Post

Confession: I am a shopaholic. Anyone else? Don’t get me wrong, I never spend beyond my means and sometimes I don’t even buy anything at all (the simple act of window shopping is enough for me) but I just love the whole experience. If I am on a mission to purchase however, I will take ages over choosing the right thing, making sure I’ve covered all possibilities first. I had a new rug delivered just yesterday, thankfully I was really pleased with it – I had spent months agonising over the perfect monochrome/geometric combination that I was after! Now you understand why my husband refuses to come shopping with me any more *sigh*. My favourite kind of shopping is clothes shopping (or bags, or shoes…you get… View Post

  Ah how I’ve missed my little corner of cyberspace over the last two weeks. I apologise for my absence but life kind of got in the way, you know how it is sometimes? But I’m back and have loads of posts I want to write; all currently filed somewhere in the back of my mind under ‘to be aired at a convenient moment’. Watch this space. So today’s ‘Little Loves’ post will be covering the last two weeks – a kind of double whammy if you like. I always love to reflect on my week so this time I get to do two of them and just pick the best bits to share with you all. Read I’ve become a real book worm… View Post

I was going to start by saying it’s been a nice week but in reality, it’s been raining quite a bit and the husband has had man flu (say no more). I’ve also done my back in, probably due to me forgetting an Osteopath appointment last Friday, but the less said about that the better. So why has it been ‘nice’? Time to share my #LittleLoves for this week… Read I’ve started a new book and have made time this week to read a little bit every night before going to sleep. ‘Try Not to Breathe’ is a debut novel by Holly Seddon and was lent to me by a friend. Right from the first page, I was hooked. If you enjoyed ‘The Girl on… View Post

I love trying out new make-up and beauty products. There are two reasons behind this love affair of mine: firstly, mother nature needs more than a little helping hand these days and secondly, if it’s going to look nice in my bathroom, I’m having it. I rarely spend much money on products these days, mainly because my pricey-but-worth-it Liz Earle stuff kept disappearing (nothing is sacred when you have teenage girls in the house). So in the name of keeping my stress levels to a minimum, whilst demonstrating the art of sharing, I started to buy cheap. And you know what? I’ve found some little gems. In fact these products are currently all on sale for less than £4! Garnier Micellar Water – £2.66 This little bottle… View Post
