OK, so I’ve blinked and this week has ended, what is up with that? We had a lovely but busy weekend in Kent and then the week days have flown by. Monday saw me spending in the day in bed feeling rather run down. A bath, a nap and Vampire Diaries were just what I needed. Here are the good things that have made my week..
I’ve still not picked up a book, well apart from this one, How to Style Your Brand. I’m finding it so helpful, just need to make the time to implement what I’m learning!
I took a trip to my favourite cafe last Friday afternoon. It’s one of the oldest in our city and is beautiful. There’s no wifi and my phone reception is awful in there so it’s the perfect place to get things done without distractions.
As for blogs I’ve read lots and it’s been tough to narrow it down to these few.
Not Another Mummy Blog
I’m been a fan of Alison’s writing for a long while now and over the years I’ve met her a few times and would consider her to be a friend. This week she’s written about mum labels, you know ‘smug mum’, ‘slummy mummy’ etc. All these get a massive eye roll from me and Alison shares why they just aren’t real or helpful and I couldn’t agree with her more.
Now you know how much I love Instagram so these next two posts won’t be a surprise, they highlight two great hashtag communities.
Life as Our Little Family
Kerri Ann is one of my original Little Loves linker uppers and I’ve loved her blog ever since I first read it. This week she’s launched a new project, a brand new Instagram community all about sharing and celebrating family adventures, #MyFamilyAdventures
Life at the Little Wood
Where do I start with Emma’s beautiful blog? If you haven’t seen her blog then I implore you to pop on over. Her beautiful home and family and not to mention the fact that she is THE NICEST person I guarantee you’ll be going back for more. In this post Emma shares photos of a photo walk she went on with her daughter, she also highlights the IG community #MotherhoodAlive
On Sunday we were in Kent for the mister’s Triathlon, it was half Ironman distance this time so 1.9km lake swim, a 90km bike and a 21km off-road run. I’m exhausted just typing that out! It was at Castle Hever so the girls and I had a great day exploring the castle and the grounds, of course we watched him start and finish! I’ll be sharing more about it over the weekend. Here are a few pics for now..
Oh and he completed it, and even has a medal to prove it!
When it comes to TV, I’m still bingeing my way through Vampire Diaries and loving it. That’s about all I’ve watched TV wise to be honest.
I made a chocolate cake, but have no photographic evidence of doing so, it didn’t stay around long enough!! I also made a point about dealing with Mean Girls in a blog post earlier this week, it seems to have resonated with a lot of people, head on over and have a read if you haven’t already. I’d love to know what you think.
and Breton tops. Unintentional matching going on here – honest!
I’m still loving the Women of Indie playlist on Spotify and this has lead to me listening to MØ
And here’s the Women of Indie playlist in case you missed it last week..
