Time Apart

My blog and I, we’ve been spending some time apart. For a while, I just wasn’t feeling it. I couldn’t get my head in the right place, couldn’t focus or find that inspiration and motivation I was once full of. I’ve been blogging for 3 1/2 years now, and it that time, this little space of mine has commanded a huge chunk of my brain power. What started out as a hobby soon became my life. I spent every waking minute thinking about two things: My family, and my blog. And honestly, it started to get a bit too much. […]

Crying Over Gilmore Girls #LittleLoves

Wow, this is my first post in June. I can’t believe I’m saying that, can you bloody believe it’s June? Cray! We’ve had a good week this week, with lots of things going on. It hasn’t been half term for us, as the schools here break up for summer in four weeks. I’ve been watching social media with some mild envy as everyone seems to be away somewhere nice. Anyway, enough of my jealousy, on to what we’ve been loving this week. Read This week I finally finished reading The Help. I started reading it in March, so it’s taken me a […]

Getting a Good Night’s Sleep

A good night’s sleep is something I crave, all of the time. I love my bed. I love snuggling up under my duvet, and could happily spend the whole day in bed if given the chance.

As most parents will know, time spent sleeping is precious. From the moment mama finds out she’s pregnant, sleep (or lack of it) becomes a big deal. From the uncomfortable nights with a huge bump, […]

Beauty and the Beast & Black Lipstick #LittleLoves

This week has been a strange one, tainted by the awful events in Westminster on Wednesday. I’ve finished the week just feeling a bit off, really. I know there are terrible things happening all around the world on a daily basis, but I often live in a bit of a bubble. When something like this happens so close to home, my bubble is burst and I’m reminded what a cruel world this can be. I’m certainly not going to let that one awful event define the week though, because there have been plenty of lovely things happening to put a […]

Are You Messy? Blame Your Zodiac Sign!

*This is a collaboration I’m not going to lie, I’m a hot mess. I don’t think I’ve ever truly been organised in my life. Sure, I’ve tried, and sometimes succeeded at having some kind of order to my life: but when things look calm on the surface, my legs are going mad under the water trying to keep my afloat. What I’m saying is, when I look like I’ve got things under control, all is not as it seems. Today, for example: My desk looks pretty tidy, but open one of my drawers and you’ll find empty wrappers and other […]
