A few of my favourite things #104

I am so ready for half term. The idea of a whole week of no alarms, no rushing around, just slowing down and taking it easy sounds sooo good. I'm fortunate that the overtime I did last month has allowed me to take a week off, so we'll be able to spend a few days… Continue reading A few of my favourite things #104

A few of my favourite things #59

I've decided to mix things up a bit on the blog this week. I've done away with my weekly Saturday Share, in favour of a Follow Friday shout out on Twitter and Instagram, plus a top five in my monthly newsletter. Now that my hours have changed at work I've also decided to change my… Continue reading A few of my favourite things #59

Rediscovering the joy of baths [Self-Care Sunday #45]

When people talk about acts of self-care, long, luxurious baths come up quite often. I've never really been a fan as I quite often find it to be a waste of time, particularly now that I'm a parent and time to myself doesn't come around that often. Now I'm a total convert. Taking half an… Continue reading Rediscovering the joy of baths [Self-Care Sunday #45]

November stationery swap

Yep, I did another stationery swap. What can I say? Jocelyn is great at organising these things - and you can never have too much stationery. I was paired with Rebecca and she sent me an awesome package of goodies. My favourites are obviously unicorn-related. Such a cute postcard and colouring card. I always need… Continue reading November stationery swap

Lumberjanes: The perfect book for hardcore lady-types

I've read a lot of young adult books lately which I've wished were around ten or twenty years ago for me to appreciated at a younger age. Lumberjanes* is one such book and, come to think of it, it's a great book for females of any age. Released tomorrow, Lumberjanes: Unicorn Power! is the ultimate… Continue reading Lumberjanes: The perfect book for hardcore lady-types
