The Cursed Child, The Walking Dead and indie film soundtracks #LittleLoves

This week I've been battling a poorly child, a serious lack of me time and debating whether or not to get out the winter coat. Here's a look at the sunnier side of the last seven days. Read: Harry Potter and The Cursed Child - and it nearly wrecked me, almost on a level with… Continue reading The Cursed Child, The Walking Dead and indie film soundtracks #LittleLoves

Scrappy Little Nobody, The Walking Dead and spring footwear #LittleLoves

It's been another long and knackering week - three nights out of the last seven I've gone to bed with Jenson and not had an evening to myself (self-care anyone?) and there's so much I want to get done. I felt super-productive when I changed all the bedding yesterday though; you can't beat fresh sheets.… Continue reading Scrappy Little Nobody, The Walking Dead and spring footwear #LittleLoves

Wish list: chicklitdesigns from Etsy

New favourite website: Bay 57

It's not often that a sponsored post pops up on my Facebook newsfeed and I click on the link. It's even more rare that I then spend the best part of an hour browsing the entire site, following their social media accounts and pinning pretty much their entire stock. But that's what happened when Bay… Continue reading New favourite website: Bay 57

Coming soon to DVD: Game of Thrones Season 3

I think I'm the only geek in the world who hasn't seen Game of Thrones yet. It's on the list and I intend to catch up this year - just as soon as I'm done with Castle, The Mentalist, The Walking Dead, Arrow, Elementary... and Chuck! I've still not seen Season 5. Then there's Breaking… Continue reading Coming soon to DVD: Game of Thrones Season 3


Goodbye 2013, hello 2014!

I've just read back my hopes for 2013 post and I don't think I've done too badly. This year, I didn't set myself resolutions, rather I made a short list of things I wanted to achieve. Here's how I cracked on with them: 1. Learn to sew I might not have actually learned to sew… Continue reading Goodbye 2013, hello 2014!
