Self-Care Sunday #13

Wow, it's been a busy week. I've done the equivalent of an extra working day from home this week, taken Jenson to his swimming lesson, gymnastics and the park, plus lunch with the family and general mum/housework duties, so there's not been a helluva lot of time for me/self-care. Fortunately, I started a gratitude journal… Continue reading Self-Care Sunday #13

National Stationery Week 2017: Thank You Thursday [Department Store for the Mind review and giveaway]

I hope that this week's National Stationery Week posts introduce you to at least one new brand and that you discover plenty of gorgeous goodies to adorn your office with. And perhaps some will help you with more than providing a nice new pen or notebook. I first heard about Department Store for the Mind… Continue reading National Stationery Week 2017: Thank You Thursday [Department Store for the Mind review and giveaway]

National Stationery Week 2017: Get Crafty [The Green Gables review and giveaway]

The different themes for National Stationery Week are so much fun, especially today's: Get Crafty. What stationery addict doesn't love a roll of washi tape or inspirational postcard? I've approached a different brand to work with for each themed today and chose The Green Gables for my crafty post. Gabrielle's Live Happy range is ideal… Continue reading National Stationery Week 2017: Get Crafty [The Green Gables review and giveaway]

Saturday Share #82

It's been a busy week. Not one with a lot on, just one of those weeks which seems to have gone by really quickly and where you feel like you haven't really done anything. Fortunately my book reviews were scheduled ahead of time but I kept falling asleep when Jenson did and didn't post a… Continue reading Saturday Share #82

Item of the day: Simple reminders stickers from Department Store for the Mind at Not on the High Street

My 2017 bullet journal set-up is nearly ready to share - it took me an age just to decide what notebook I was going to use! I think stickers and washi tape are the way to go for me creatively as I'm not an artist but still want it to look pretty and colourful. I… Continue reading Item of the day: Simple reminders stickers from Department Store for the Mind at Not on the High Street

Goals for 2017 – and a giveaway!

I didn't really set any new year's resolutions for the last couple of years - I just wanted to focus on being a good mum. Now I feel like I've settled into the working mum routine and it's time to focus on myself a bit more. In my latest Box of Lame (more on that… Continue reading Goals for 2017 – and a giveaway!

Friday Favourites #13

I love writing these posts; even if I've had a particularly lazy/stressful/shitty week, I'm always able to think of at least five things that have put a smile on my face. In amongst a week full of deadlines, late nights, over-time and, let's face it, just feeling a little bit stressed out, I've taken comfort… Continue reading Friday Favourites #13

It's that time of the week again where I share my favourite recent reads and newly discovered blogs. Grab a brew and enjoy! Books Gemma Correll is one of my fave illustrators and she's just jumped a million places up my girl crush list after releasing her Feminist Activity Book. The girl is so freakin'… Continue reading Saturday Share #52

Check out my first Friday Favourites post here and let me know… Continue reading Saturday Share #51

Follow Friday #50

Last week I was too knackered to post a Follow Friday, so my 50th(!) post is now a bumper special. Seems rather apt. Looking to experiment in the kitchen this weekend? I've got you covered with loads of new recipes, as well as tips for those wanting to start a bullet journal and a whole… Continue reading Follow Friday #50
