Jenson being hilarious

Self-Care Sunday #7

It's true what they say, laughter is the best medicine. My favourite sound in the world is Jenson's laughter and I was creased up watching him the other day. He likes to 'hide' in my mum's conservatory and this week he realised that it's hilarious to press his nose and tongue up against the glass… Continue reading Self-Care Sunday #7

Daredevil, podcasts and a new look #LittleLoves

This is my third #LittleLoves and I've gotta say I like this alternative to my previous Friday Favourites posts. I've loved discovering other blogs in the linky and it's great to find a new way to engage with other bloggers. Here's a look at what I've been up to this week. Read: I've actually read… Continue reading Daredevil, podcasts and a new look #LittleLoves

Book review: Like a Queen by Constance Hall

I'm not normally one for reading non-fiction, preferring instead to lose myself in an imaginary world. But I'm such a huge fan Constance Hall and her hilariously relatable blog that I just had to read her book. My friend, Sophie, was quick to order Like a Queen as soon as it was released in Australia… Continue reading Book review: Like a Queen by Constance Hall

Parenthood

Item of the day: Elephant bookstand from JoJo Maman Bebe

Jenson has almost as many books as I do, so this bookstand would have to just hold his favouritest of favourites, but look how cute! It would make a perfect nursery accessory for babies who only have a small book collection so far. Elephant bookstand, £14.00

Item of the day: Roald Dahl home range from TK Maxx

I love Roald Dahl's children's stories and Quentin Blake's illustrations, so of course I love the new home range from TK Maxx. The bean cubes are great but I think my favourite pieces are the Charlie and the Chocolate Factory and Matilda cushions. Bleddy bargains too! Charlie and the Chocolate Factory cushion, £12.99, James and… Continue reading Item of the day: Roald Dahl home range from TK Maxx

Moana, Talking As Fast As I Can and International Women’s Day #LittleLoves

You might have noticed that it's Friday and this isn't a Friday Favourites post. Well, it kinda is but I've mixed it up a bit. I'm re-launching the blog in a couple of weeks with a new design and I'm changing a few things around in order to immerse myself in the blogging community a… Continue reading Moana, Talking As Fast As I Can and International Women’s Day #LittleLoves

the gro company elephants
Parenthood

Item of the day: Elephants from The Gro Company

I don't know what it is about elephants but they seem to make popular toys for babies. Even I bought a load of elephant items for Jenson - probably a subconscious childhood thing as they're my mum's favourite animal and I had a fair few myself growing up. The Gro Company have an adorable range… Continue reading Item of the day: Elephants from The Gro Company

Item of the day: Penguin cloth book from Kidly

We're at that stage where a lot of people who had babies around the same time as me are now pregnant with the next, so I'll be doing some new baby shopping soon. I'm totally always going to be that parent/aunt/friend who buys books and this soft cloth penguin book from Kidly is gorgeous -… Continue reading Item of the day: Penguin cloth book from Kidly

Jenson: 21 months old

21 months! After going to our first second birthday party recently it's becoming all too clear that we'll be planning our own second birthday party soon. Eek! As Jenson gets closer to that milestone I'm becoming more aware that he's not a baby anymore - and hasn't been for some time. His vocabulary is growing… Continue reading Jenson: 21 months old
