Bake Off, loose-leaf tea and cool kids clothes #LittleLoves

I've felt a bit out of sorts this week as I spent the first two days working from home. An ongoing medical problem and working a 90-minute bus ride from home has meant needing to be flexible with my hours so that I can accommodate appointments. It did mean, however, that my first day in… Continue reading Bake Off, loose-leaf tea and cool kids clothes #LittleLoves

An epic Sainsburys stationery sale haul

So the other day I nipped to Sainsburys to pick up a click and collect (some clothes I'd ordered for Jenson THE DAY BEFORE the 25% off started. But whatevs) and figured it would be rude not to check if there were some stationery bargains to be had. And oh em gee I picked up… Continue reading An epic Sainsburys stationery sale haul

A Tu Clothing wish list – 25% off!

You know you're a grown up when you get excited about 25% off clothing weeks at Sainsburys! It's especially well timed for the back to school shop. You'd think we don't have to worry about that for a couple of years but because Jenson is starting nursery in a few weeks I want to make… Continue reading A Tu Clothing wish list – 25% off!

Friday Favourites #38

I mentioned last week that I've brought back my traditional Friday Favourites for a few weeks while there's no #LittleLoves linky and, I have to admit, I've liked not having the restrictions of the read, watched, heard, made and wore themes. Especially in a week filled with stationery and books. Now that's a good week!… Continue reading Friday Favourites #38

A stationery wish list

You may remember that I used to do 'item of the day' posts, where I'd share my favourite finds. I recently decided to switch to semi-regular wish list posts instead. It's been a while since the last one but I've continued to bookmark some of my favourite little treats and now it's time to share… Continue reading A stationery wish list

A nerdy feminist blogger’s wish list

I mentioned in last week's #LittleLoves post that I've decided to ditch the item of the day posts and do semi-regular wish list posts instead.

Women's retro Power Rangers t-shirt, Truffle Shuffle, £17.99 Femme forever t-shirt, Topshop, £15.00 Bookishly's stationery bundle, Bookishly,… Continue reading A nerdy feminist blogger’s wish list

Item of the day: The Snowman PJs from Tu Clothing @ Sainsburys

I've been trying to find Jenson some Olaf PJs for his Christmas Eve box but it's impossible to get them in 18-24 months; everything seems to start at two years. I spotted these on the Sainsburys website though and am a bit in love with them. For £15.00 you can get adorable Snowman and Snowdog… Continue reading Item of the day: The Snowman PJs from Tu Clothing @ Sainsburys

Friday Favourites #15

Autumn is definitely on the way - it was still dark when I got up for work the other day! Granted, it was a particularly early start and I was up just before 6am, but still. Summer is pretty much over so it's time to rediscover the joy in the little things, like finding a… Continue reading Friday Favourites #15

Item of the day: You’re All My Favourites by Sam McBratney and Anita Jeram

I picked up a click and collect at Sainsburys the other day and couldn't help browsing the clothes, books and toys for Jenson. A book that jumped out at me was You're All My Favourites by Sam McBratney and Anita Jeram - the writer/illustrator behind Guess How Much I Love You. It was the first… Continue reading Item of the day: You’re All My Favourites by Sam McBratney and Anita Jeram
