A Monster Calls, Fathers Day and new shoes #LittleLoves

I went back to work this week after an incredible week off and I struggled a bit with the hot weather. I managed to squeeze in some reading though - and some questionable TV last weekend!

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: January 2017

We made it! We survived the most depressing month of the year. I might not have done too well on the old resolutions (does one bath cut short by a screaming baby count as self-care?) but there's still 11 months to go. Here's a look at my month in photos. 1. I was gutted when… Continue reading My life in photos: January 2017

Friday Favourites #30

It's been the first full week (ok, I'm part-time but still) back at work since Christmas and I've been bleddy knackered. The commute means I'm ready for bed come 8pm on a Wednesday so I don't really get much done the first half of the week. Now's the time for catching up on laundry, tidying… Continue reading Friday Favourites #30

Item of the day: Jumpers from New Look

I was gifted £35 of New Look vouchers for my birthday from Luke's family and the guys sent me a 20% off code to help celebrate - yay! Double yay when I spotted three jumpers to get me through winter. You may remember I previously said how difficult it was to find something long and… Continue reading Item of the day: Jumpers from New Look

A Cornish geek’s birthday/Christmas wish list

I've finally done it! I've picked the ultimate gifts for my 29th birthday and Christmas stocking. Is 29 too old to still be doing Christmas lists? I've already been asked by two people if there's anything special I'd like for my birthday (less than four weeks away, FYI - and four weeks before Christmas) and… Continue reading A Cornish geek’s birthday/Christmas wish list

When will high street stores start catering to the average UK woman?

See this awesome range of Wonder Woman clothes from Zara? Pretty epic, right? It made me go from giddy to gutted in a matter of seconds last week when I realised that high street stores were finally catering to broader fashion interests - but not broader sizes. The average woman in the UK is a… Continue reading When will high street stores start catering to the average UK woman?
