  • Christmas – It’s Just One Day

    It’s just one day. We all know that about Christmas, yet we still obsess over what time is best to go to the supermarket, to avoid the frantic crowds. We stress over whether we will have enough money to fund all the present-buying that is necessary and panic that we might be ill on The Big Day. Don’t get me…

    How I Found Balance in 2018

    It will come as no surprise to most of you, that I believe we were all put on this earth for a reason. With that comes a responsibility to be doing our very best at life – not just surviving but thriving. Cliche? Maybe. For me, a big part of ‘doing life well’ involves regular self-evaluation. Don’t we all need a…

    Chocolatey Goodness, Sparkly Jumpers and Inspiring Podcasts #LittleLoves

    I’ve been fairly absent on my blog this month and whilst there’s no real need for me to apologise (it is my blog after all) I’m going to anyway. Sometimes, when life is a bit tricky, I find it difficult to get my thoughts together and focusing on writing feels fairly impossible. I’ve missed it though – putting finger to…

    Parenting Teenagers? Help is at Hand

    I love social media and reading blogs; I adore reading about fashion, interiors, beauty, books and travel destinations. There are so many people producing excellent content on these topics that I have almost quit buying magazines. I said *almost*. BUT, where are the people who blog, film, tweet and photograph about family life with teenagers? I wrote a post last…

    Do you ever feel like you’re doing it wrong?

    ‘Why does no one blog about parenting teenagers?’  That was the plea that came across the internet a few nights ago and it’s one I’ve asked myself on numerous occasions. When our children reach the age of 13, it’s tumble weed on social media. I imagine this is largely due to the fact that our children are there too and…

Nicky started her blog in 2015, she covers everything about ‘midlife’ including her varied interests, family life and of course, her passion for all things luxury home decor. Nicky has a very distinctive taste and her clear love for luxury home decor flows…

    Life: Is this how you imagined it?

    Do you remember that task in primary school, when we were asked to write about our future life and how we imagined it might turn out? I am guessing that many of us might have said something along the lines of being married, working as a teacher (we all LOVED our primary school teachers back then, didn’t we?) with 2.4 children and…

    Bedroom Fit for a Teenage Boy

    Interiors posts are like buses round here – none for weeks, then they all come at once. When I started this blog back in 2016, one of my aims was to fall in love with my home again. I’ve always enjoyed ‘making our house a home’ – some new sofa cushions here, a touch of greenery there – but for a…

    Stunning Views, Feeling Challenged and Birthday Vibes #LittleLoves

    As I write this, I am enjoying a much-needed family break in Mawgan Porth, Cornwall. Fresh air, surfing, afternoon naps and cream teas – just what the doctor ordered. It has been the perfect way to round off October and although I am normally a creature of habit who likes to spend their birthday at home, it has been so…
