I feel like I have lived this week with the fast forward button firmly pushed down. I can’t believe it’s time to write up my Little Loves already. I was hit by the flu bug last Friday and since then I’ve been playing catch up from that and from looking after E. Honestly I’d be lost if it wasn’t for my trusty bullet journal helping me keep track of everything.
I’ve read Love Warrior by Glennon Doyle Melton. Glennon founded Momastery a blog and online community, and it’s safe to say I’m pretty obsessed with her and follow her on all social media platforms! She is a speaker of truth and someone I find so inspiring. Love Warrior is her latest book, it’s a memoir that shares her story in such a painfully authentic way holding nothing back but breathing so much hope into each line. I’ll share more about it next week in my monthly book round up, Coffee Work Read.
Now onto some blogs I’ve been enjoying this week,
Lucy and I have been friends for years after starting blogging at similar times. Her eldest boy is the same age as my youngest girl and we both started blogging when they were babies. Lucy has gone on to have two more little ones and is a big deal on the UK parent blogger scene 😉 She takes beautiful photos and accompanies them with equally beautiful words in her blog posts. It was her littlest girl’s first birthday recently – Happy First Birthday Ashlynn Quinn
Fritha is another blogger I’ve known for a long time. Her blog is full of colourful inspiration and I always finish reading it with a smile on my face. She blogs about her gorgeous little family, as well as her beautifully colourful style, both clothes and home wares/interiors. I really enjoyed this post about taking part in one of Xanthe Berkley’s photo walks for Boden’s 25th birthday.
The mister and I have been on the look out for a new series to watch together and we came across Designated Survivor on Netflix. It stars Kiefer Sutherland as a newly sworn in President after a terrorist attack wipes out the whole of congress. Now I must admit that bar 24 I’m not the biggest fan of Kiefer’s acting but he holds his own in this one and so far so good.
I’m going to make them with the girls at the weekend, they are just so cute!
The rainy part of Autumn has well and truly hit us here, so it’s been the week of donning my very bright rain mac. There’s no missing me on the school playground when I’m wearing this baby! In all seriousness I think I could do with investing in a darker coloured one for those days where I want to be a little more incognito.
You can see me channeling my inner Cornish fisherman in the feature photo above. My coat is from Topshop and jumper from Primark.
I’ve gone for lighter nails this week and dug out one of my favourites, Barry M – Rosehip.
I’ve got a new obsession, RY X, his music is my perfect work soundtrack. If you like artists such as James Blake, Bon Iver or James Vincent McMorrow then you are in for a treat.
After having a little chat with Kerry from Noah and the Girls I’ve decided to try vlogging my Little Loves. I’m not sure if I’ll do it every week, I might just do a monthly one. We shall see! If you decide to vlog your Little Loves and have it on YouTube rather than blogging them you can still link up via the linky below. Just pop your Youtube video link where you’d usually put the blog post address, or you can embed your video into your blog post and link up as you would normally.
Unfortunately I’ve not found the time to do my vlog yet, I’m trying to fit it in soon so it might be up here in the next couple of days. If not then I promise there will be on next Friday.
Here are this week’s #LittleLoves instagram community choices.
If you’re on Instagram and want to join in, it’s so easy just use the hashtag #littleloves on any photo that shows something little that you love – so that can be pretty much anything! I then share my favourites from the week on here and on my Instagram – @coffeeworksleep
HAVE A WONDERFUL WEEKEND!
Fancy joining in?
Just copy the headings and use them as prompts in a blog post then link up below and let me know!
Don’t forget to show some love to the fellow bloggers sharing the little things that they’ve loved this week, by having a read and commenting on their posts too. Be sure to use the hashtag #littleloves if you’re on twitter so we can all keep an eye out for the posts and promote each others.
Here’s my badge if you fancy popping it on your post:
