  • Best Face Products for 40+ Women Recommended by 40+ Women

    I’m on my virtual soapbox at the moment, shouting for the 40+ woman to be heard and seen in the online world. Why? Because every age group needs a voice and we are no exception! As I’ve got older, I have become increasingly interested in beauty products. I put this new-found fascination down to four things: Sharing my home with…

    2017: The Year I Learned to Let Go

    The guests have gone, the decorations are down, it’s time to contemplate 2017. For the last five years, I’ve been kicking a new year off with the help of a workbook called Unravel Your Year by Susannah Conway. For someone who likes to reflect and plan, it’s an excellent tool that I would highly recommend. Before considering the new year…

    Festive Creations, Cosy Knits and the Best Film I’ve …

    Anyone know what day it is? I honestly don’t think I’ve had any idea for the last two weeks. I’m still undecided as to whether that means I’m totally relaxed or finally losing it! Answers on a postcard… I’ve been storing up this month’s Little Loves for some time because it’s been such a busy one. December is hectic, stressful…

    Avoiding Bingo Wings with Namaste Yoga {Review & Giveaway}

    I threw out a question on Twitter the other day, one that I think many of us would like to know the answer to: ‘Is there any way of avoiding bingo wings?‘ I mean it’s an important question, right? Sadly it was met with silence, other than one helpful tweeter who suggested yoga as being her absolute saviour in the…

    2017: My Year in Numbers

    In case you hadn’t realised, we are almost at the end of another year. Each year seems to go by at a faster pace as I get older. Perhaps it’s something to do with realising that every moment needs to be cherished – time flies when you’re having fun eh? What a year it’s been. If you’ve been following me…

    At Home With…Steph {Steph’s Two Girls}

    There really is nothing better than watching a complete house renovation unfold. I said ‘watching’ not ‘experiencing’! Steph and her family bought their home in 2016 but only moved in earlier this year. Although not quite finished, Steph has kindly allowed us a sneaky peek into their gorgeous 1930s home. Who lives in your home? I live with my husband…

    The Beauty of Traditions

    “What’s a Bauble Exchange?” shouted my husband from the living room as our (still relatively unsuccessful) shared calendar alerted him to my scheduled escapade for the following day. “You know” I said “It’s when my book group get together and we swap a Christmas bauble.”  None the wiser, he took the easy route and ceased asking questions. Swapping a bauble…

    Bad Moms, Christmas Markets and an Advent Fail #LittleLoves

    I decided a while ago to pull back from writing a Little Loves post at the end of every week. It was slowly becoming a chore rather than a pleasure and finding the time to read (and make) something every week was adding to the pressure of an already busy life. The new plan is to write a post at…

    Staying Cosy in Winter with LOTD

    I remember announcing to my sister-in-law that I was going skiing for the first time and she almost fell off her chair: “But you hate the cold!” She’s right, I do hate the cold, but over the years I’ve made it my mission to find ways to keep warm in winter. I regularly wear leggings or thermals under my jeans…

    Christmas Haters, Back Off {7 Tips for Making Your Fake Tree …

    I have such fond memories of Christmas as a child. Every year we would visit my granny and grandad’s house and stay for at least four days. In fact they would put up about 18 of us for those four days, providing a cooked breakfast every morning and hosting a party on Boxing Day for all of their friends and…

    A Little Autumn Catch Up

    My head has been awash with potential posts over the last few weeks, a sure sign that I’m long overdue a catch up on here Autumn is always such a busy time of year for me but I do love it. September signals the start of all things new and I’m so in love with the changes that nature brings…
