    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…

    Christmas Gifts for the Home Lover – Under £50

    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…

    Frosty Mornings, a Touch of Christmas and Bobble Hats #LittleLoves

      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…

    Family Time, a New Page-Turner and Treacle Tart #LittleLoves

    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…

    5 Essential Beauty Buys for Under £5

    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…

    Chocolate Heaven, a Rose Gold Obsession and Gilmore Girls #LittleLoves

    Since making the decision to reduce my working hours last week, I’ve felt so much lighter and less overwhelmed. I’ve even had time to take my little pooch for an autumn stroll – he loves a seasonal romp in the leaves. I also sat down and wrote a post about dealing with life when it goes belly up – personal experience this…

    9 Ways to Help Yourself When Life Gets Messy

    I always thought my life was on an even keel. In fact I’m ashamed to admit that I *almost* thought I had it sorted – nice house, well behaved kids, holidays abroad, enough money in the bank for a rainy day. But you know what happens when we become a little too comfortable, don’t you? Life gets messy! Compared to…

    Poolside Reads, Late Nights and Sun-kissed Skin #LittleLoves

    Another Friday, another week is drawing to a close. In fact two weeks have passed since I last shared my Little Loves. It’s certainly been a fortnight of two halves – basking in glorious heat by the side of a pool one day, trudging through mud and christening my new winter coat the next. I’ve certainly got lots to share! To follow…

    These Boots Were Made for….

    [dropcap]W[/dropcap]alking…running…jumping…kicking in leaves. You name it, you can do anything in a pair of brown knee-high boots! I love boots. Full stop. I have ankle boots in black, brown and grey; some with a heel, some flat. I have calf-height biker boots in black (could definitely do with a brown pair), knee-length black boots for wearing with a skirt or sometimes…
