My girls Mini Boden Wishlist for Autumn/Winter

Now that both my girls are at school they definitely don’t need as many clothes. When they were little I’d buy loads of t shirts and playwear so if they wore them to nursery and got messy it didn’t really matter. They had lots in their wardrobes but little of it would be expensive, I

Nights out, family time and fun in the forest #LittleLoves

    This weekend I finished Before We Met and now I’ve picked up Our Endless Numbered Days again. If I’m honest I enjoyed Before We Met but I guessed the twist about half way through and only kept reading to see if I was right. I’ll be writing about both these books more in

Simple crumble recipe – Blackberry and Apple

Firstly I have to say that if you’re looking for a I Quit Sugar recipe for crumble then I suggest you look else where, my  sugar ban just had to be suspended for this beaut of a simple crumble recipe! We went blackberry picking in the woods just the other day and had so much

Beat Bugs, picking blackberries and homemade crumble #LittleLoves

It’s been a quieter week for us this week, we’ve not ventured far from home really but I’ve enjoyed the chilled out pace that’s for sure.   I’ve temporarily put down Our Endless Numbered Days and started Before We Met after picking it up in our local charity bookshop the other day. N was excited

pastel hair trend - pink dip dye hair

Pastel Hair Trend – Pink hair don’t care!

Up until last year I had never, ever dyed my hair. The closest thing to dying my hair I came to was using hair mascara in my teens (remember them?!) and that wash in wash out stuff that never really worked! It wasn’t until grey hairs started to appear that I thought the time may

#MUMBOSS -Getting to know Sarah from stationery store Got2Jot

I don’t know about you but I’m a bit of a stationery geek. Rather embarrassingly, when I worked in a office one of my favourite days was when the office supplies delivery came and I got to raid the cupboard for pens and coloured post it notes! Even when I was at school nothing beat

Being friends with my daughters

First off I feel like I have to say, I’m not a parent that has a deep desperate need to be liked and accepted by my children. I’m their mum and they’re not always going to agree with me or like the decisions I make but that comes with the territory in parenting and I

Roald Dahl’s BFG and the magic of dreams

Roald Dahl books were hugely influential to me as a child, I voraciously read my way through his classic children’s books with Matilda and Revolting Rhymes being my particular favourites. Now that my girls are older they are discovering the joy of Roald Dahl books for themselves. I often find N hiding under her covers

Interview with Victoria Vida of Netflix’s Project MC2

I’ve blogged about Project MC2 a few times now, you can take a look here for those posts. It is my 8 year old daughter’s absolute favourite programme and one that I am more than happy for her to obsess over. It’s based around a group of four super smart, science skilled American teenage girls
