There's sill a few live if you want to check them out (spend a day on the river, non-alcoholic goodies from Polgoon and a meal for two at the Rock Pool Cafe).… Continue reading The Happy Newspaper, Maya Angelou and Game of Thrones #LittleLoves

A Monster Calls, Fathers Day and new shoes #LittleLoves

Here's what I've been up to this week. Read: Why did no-one warn me about A Monster Calls when… Continue reading A Monster Calls, Fathers Day and new shoes #LittleLoves

I finished A Tree Grows in Brooklyn on Monday (I can… Continue reading Wonder Woman, One Love Manchester and General Election 2017 #LittleLoves

Birthday celebrations, summer footwear and awesome post #LittleLoves

I've had a hectic week off work as we've been celebrating Jenson's second birthday! I'm now officially the mother of a two year old. May the tantrums begin (continue...). But Jenson hasn't been the only one to receive some epic stuff over the last few days. Here's a look at our week.

The ultimate Father’s Day gift

Find it hard to shop for your dad/grandad/partner for Father's Day? I've found the ultimate gift from Totally Funky*. I challenge you to find a single bloke who isn't into Star Wars, or at least appreciates the "I'm your father" line. It's particularly apt in our house - my partner is called Luke and he… Continue reading The ultimate Father’s Day gift

The Inevitable Defeat of Mister & Pete, coffee and National Stationery Week #LittleLoves

I thought that having not posted a Little Loves/Friday Favourites last week I'd have more to talk about this week. 'Unfortunately', I didn't have much of a life outside of National Stationery Week. I say 'unfortunately' because it was actually bloody awesome. I got to work with some fantastic brands, building/growing great working relationships, I've… Continue reading The Inevitable Defeat of Mister & Pete, coffee and National Stationery Week #LittleLoves

How is my annual leave nearly over :( Fortunately I'm off again in a few weeks for Jenson's birthday and I feel like I've been productive with my time this week.

And we've got another birthday party tomorrow -… Continue reading The Good Fight, biscuit decorating and Papergang #LittleLoves

Manic Pixie Dream Girls, Peppa Pig and Ed Sheeran sing-alongs #LittleLoves

It's been another one of those weird weeks where the weather was gorgeous all weekend so I was able to frolic in the son with Jenson and then when my working 'week' started (sorry not sorry) I was in bed every night with Jenson with no evenings to myself. I find it easier to cope… Continue reading Manic Pixie Dream Girls, Peppa Pig and Ed Sheeran sing-alongs #LittleLoves

Scrappy Little Nobody, The Walking Dead and spring footwear #LittleLoves

It's been another long and knackering week - three nights out of the last seven I've gone to bed with Jenson and not had an evening to myself (self-care anyone?) and there's so much I want to get done. I felt super-productive when I changed all the bedding yesterday though; you can't beat fresh sheets.… Continue reading Scrappy Little Nobody, The Walking Dead and spring footwear #LittleLoves

Women's retro Power Rangers t-shirt, Truffle Shuffle, £17.99 Femme forever t-shirt, Topshop, £15.00 Bookishly's stationery bundle, Bookishly,… Continue reading A nerdy feminist blogger’s wish list
