The Sun Is Also A Star, family time and Cornish weather #LittleLoves

I almost skipped Little Loves this week because when I came to draft the post I thought it wasn't very exciting. Then I remembered that blogging isn't just about the good times; life can be mundane at times and we shouldn't feel the need to hide it or embellish. So here's my rather average week!… Continue reading The Sun Is Also A Star, family time and Cornish weather #LittleLoves

The Booby Trap, 13 Reasons Why and a new planner #LittleLoves

Man, it's been a long week. I'm always super-tired on Thursdays (when I come to schedule these posts) because I've just finished my working week and taken Jenson to his swimming lesson, which I swear is more tiring for me than it is for him. I've done some over-time this week and we also ran… Continue reading The Booby Trap, 13 Reasons Why and a new planner #LittleLoves

Exploring Cornwall: Dolly’s Tea Room & Wine Bar

Recently I went to Dolly's Tea Room & Wine Bar in Falmouth for my friend's hen do. The venue was so beautiful and the food so tasty that I just had to photograph everything and post a review. If you like a traditional afternoon tea, gin served in teapots and labradors wearing pearls, this is… Continue reading Exploring Cornwall: Dolly’s Tea Room & Wine Bar

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

My life in photos: April 2017

Happy Bank Holiday Monday! Sorry to those of you who don't get an extra day off :( 1 May means time to reflect on an awesome month and look forward to all the excitement to come. For me, April was the month with annual leave and National Stationery Week, with May bringing a busy month… Continue reading My life in photos: April 2017

The Good Fight, biscuit decorating and Papergang #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. I've been out in the sun, spent time with the family and caught up with friends. 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

A Joe Browns summer wish list

I would love to be able to afford to treat myself to a new Joe Browns outfit every month. Their seasonal collections are incredible and I always want everything. Usually I'm all about the tunics but their latest catalogue is packed full of stuff I'd love to add to my wardrobe. Take a look. Must… Continue reading A Joe Browns summer wish list

Self-Care Sunday #9

On Friday I did a pretty good job of slowing down and looking after myself. I had my first lie-in in weeks because Jenson's gymnastics session isn't on over Easter (sidebar: why do most playgroups stop in the holidays?!), I had a long shower and made blueberry and lemon pancakes for brunch. After Jenson's lunch… Continue reading Self-Care Sunday #9

Saturday Share #93

From enjoying being in my late 20s to learning to slow down, I've been inspired by plenty of bloggers again this week. There seems to be a panic amongst people my age about The Big 3-0 looming on the horizon. Not gonna lie, I'm a bit terrified of reaching it later this year. It seems… Continue reading Saturday Share #93
