    Long Weekend in New York with Teenagers {Part 2}

    If you read Part 1 of my trip to New York last month, you will know that the first two days were pretty action packed. We had four days to see as much as possible and I was on a mission. Taking teenagers was a risk (anyone who has ever parented teenagers will know that they are on a go-slow…

    Why We Need to Keep Asking Why?

    There are so many things we can get drawn into nowadays isn’t there? In the world of blogging, this couldn’t be truer. I started my first blog six years ago and straight away, felt the need to have dedicated social media accounts. Everyone else seemed to be doing it, so surely that was the right way to go? At the…

    Long Weekend in New York with Teenagers {Part 1}

    It took 46 years for me to finally take my first footsteps in New York and I can safely say that it was well worth the wait. The first 36 hours were spent pinching myself – after all those years of having it on my bucket list, I was actually there! If you’ve been to New York, you might understand…

    [dropcap]I[/dropcap] seem to begin every monthly Little Loves post by talking about the weather but it would be rude to bypass this one – this summer is the gift that keeps on giving! I cannot believe how fortunate we have been with the sunshine and tropical temperatures. It also looks set to carry on into the first half of the…

    At Home With: Molly {Mother’s Always Right}

    [dropcap]O[/dropcap]ne of the many things I love about running a series on this blog, is introducing you all to new bloggers. Molly isn’t a new blogger at all, in fact in blogger terms she’s probably a veteran! Aside from being a blogger, Molly is a journalist and mum to two little girls. She lives with her family in south Devon…

    Has Spending Less Time on My Phone Radically Changed My …

    A few months ago, I felt the need to re-evaluate the relationship I have with my phone. I wouldn’t claim to be addicted to it but I know that I spend more time on my phone that I would like. Downloading various apps that track phone usage, only confirmed that I needed to work on spending less time on my…

    The Five Most Worn Items in My Summer Wardrobe

    [dropcap]I[/dropcap]’ve talked about this before on the blog but when my children were small, I kind of lost myself a little bit. Waist deep in nappies and CBeebies for the best part of 10 years, I didn’t have much time for myself as my priorities were very much focused on my young family. Just for the record, I wouldn’t have…

    Yes I’m a Christian and Yes I’m Watching …

      [dropcap]G[/dropcap]rowing up, one of my favourite programmes on TV was Grange Hill. For anyone under the age of 30, Grange Hill was a drama series based in a North London secondary school, covering hard-hitting story lines such as drug abuse, homelessness, teenage pregnancy and rape. During my adolescent years, Grange Hill was the TV show of the moment; everyone was…
