A few of my favourite things #65

I'm really enjoying this blog series as it's turning into a bit of a weekly gratitude post. While I'm not able to go on weekends away, dine in fancy restaurants, or treat myself to shiny things, I'm incredibly fortunate that I'm able to work flexible hours and spend quality time with my son, I have… Continue reading A few of my favourite things #65

My birthday and Christmas wish list 2018

With my birthday just a few weeks before Christmas, it's about this time of year that I put myself on a book buying ban and send Santa a little list of titles which have caught my eye, plus a few extras (typically beautiful books, sexy stationery, pretty prints and slogan sweaters). Of course, like most… Continue reading My birthday and Christmas wish list 2018

A few of my favourite things #64

I'm definitely feeling the seasonal festive vibes. As Halloween shifts into Christmas, I can start to feel the excitement in the air. Of course, it doesn't help that we found Jenson's Christmas hat yesterday, so no doubt he'll be wearing that every day for for the next six weeks! Here's a look back at some… Continue reading A few of my favourite things #64

Trevaskis Farm pumpkin patch 2018

Happy Halloween

I'm a sucker for seasonal traditions. We first took Jenson to the Trevaskis Farm pumpkin patch in 2016, then again last year, so of course we had to pop back before Halloween rolled around. I panicked at the start of last week because the farm had sold out of pumpkins and I really wanted to… Continue reading Happy Halloween

A week of self-care

On a Sunday evening, most people relax in preparation for the upcoming working week. A week ago I found my eyes closing while I was sat on the sofa watching Luke cook tea, before rushing to get Jenson to sleep in time for #lbloggers and #BlogosphereChat, then making the final edits to a blog post… Continue reading A week of self-care

Winter is definitely coming, ey? Yesterday I watched the hail come crashing down outside my window, plus this week we've also had the heating on and I've dug out my slippers. I'm certainly not complaining; as much as I loved the wonderful summer we had, I do love the cosy season. Bring it on! Here's… Continue reading A few of my favourite things #63

A few of my favourite things #62

Well hasn't this been a bloody lovely week?! Gotta make the most of that autumn sunshine. It's certainly chillier in the mornings when I head to work in the dark but I've been seizing the opportunity to explore outside with Jenson on my days off. Autumn bike ride Last weekend I took Jenson out on… Continue reading A few of my favourite things #62

Stationery porn: Your Brightest Life (guided journal review)

I love to journal but I can often become somewhat disheartened by the fact that I'm not remotely artistic; I much prefer guided journals. I like an almost workbook-like structure, something with a goal and an end result, and something which can help me both reflect and look forward. Last year's Make it Happen is… Continue reading Stationery porn: Your Brightest Life (guided journal review)
