Copper hair, Alessia Cara and a Series Of Unfortunate Events #LittleLoves

This week has been a bit of a blur. We had a super busy weekend of E’s party, her friend’s party as well as the in laws staying. I must admit I felt like I needed another weekend to get over the weekend! I was straight into work mode on Monday though working on a proposal for a new venture. I hate to be vague but at this stage that’s all I can be, I promise to fill you in soon though. Enough about things I can’t tell you and let’s get on with what I can talk about  – this week’s Little Loves!

  read 

Sadly I’ve finished The Night Circus. I loved delving back into the wonderfully enchanting world of the circus and can enthusiastically tell you that I loved it just as much reading it for the second time. Hand on heart it is one of my favourite books ever and I was bereft when it ended.

My two girls have been reading lots at bedtime recently, and N has devoured Bad Beginning – Series of Unfortunate Events. She loved the film so it was a safe bet that she’d get on well with the book, I just need to remember to order the next book in the Lemony Snickett series now.

While getting my hair done (more on that later) I read through How To Style Your Brand, it’s a book that not only works well as a beautiful coffee table book but it’s also packed with helpful advice. If you have a blog or a business (or both) to brand or re-brand then it is well worth a look through.

I can’t write this section without give homage to Sherlock. I was blown away by this most reason season (can you call 3 episodes a season? I don’t know, but I’m going to..) Sacrilegiously I can be a bit hit and miss with Sherlock (the wedding episode, not for me) but these most recent offerings reminded me just how much I love it. I know that episode 3 has divided Sherlock fans but for me it was perfect. Sure there are always little plot holes but that’s not enough to put me off. The only thing that puzzled me was how weird Benedict Cumberbatch’s face looked at times, I think the make up artist went crazy withe the bronzer and um where have his eye brows gone? 

A Series Of Unfortunate Events

I’m going to mention Series of Unfortunate Events again, but this time it’s in reference to the Netflix series. I don’t know about you but we find it so hard to find programmes that we all enjoy. Something that will entertain a 6 year old, 9 year old and 2 30 somethings, it’s like the Holy Grail. This new Netflix series has come through for us though, even the 6 year old sits through it and even engages with it. As I’ve already said it was no surprise that the nine year old enjoyed it but it was a bit of a surprise to me quite how much I’ve enjoyed it. I love the narration and how word are explained, it’s just so clever and dark enough to give intrigue. As a person who is not Jim Carrey’s biggest fan, I’m happy to see that for the Netflix series he has been replaced by Neil Patrick Harris (y’know Barney from How I Met Your Mother).

Bear with me here.. I made the decision to have a rather drastic change of hair colour. I’ve been pinning copper hair and copper/brown ombre styles on Pinterest for the past few weeks and then on Wednesday I finally did it.

If you’re a regular reader of this blog you’ll know that I love buying new clothes for my kids. With E getting so many toys for Christmas I decided to focus more on clothes for her birthday and my favourite has to be this denim jacket from Next. As soon as I spotted it I just knew I had to get it for E, it just screams her name.

The rest of her outfit – trousers: Mini Boden, trainers and hoodie: H&M,

Did I mention that I love Spotify? Yes, yes, I know I have considering I talk about it each week, BUT it is brilliant and I honestly don’t know how I managed before it. I’ve been enjoying the Your Top Songs of 2016 playlist, even if it is a little jarring to go from Queens of the Stone Age to the Trolls soundtrack! One of my favourite discoveries of last year was Alessia Cara. The Moana fans among you might recognise her from the sound track. I love hearing my girls singing her songs as they have such a positive message for girls, plus it’s refreshing for a young female artist to be writing and singing songs that don’t just talk about boys and relationships. This is one that E has been singing lots this week.

If you haven’t heard her album then I really suggest you take a listen.

and lastly

I’ve been having a play around in our downstairs living space, giving it a bit of refreshing, you can read the post here if you fancy it. While I was at it I’ve changed the wall quote in the living room, it was ‘find joy in the ordinary’ and not I’ve gone for ‘say yes to new adventures’. I’m someone who knows how to say no and isn’t afraid to say it, so much so that I think I end up missing out on new experiences. I think that this year is going to be a year of lots of change for us so I’m starting as I mean to go on and saying a big yes to it all.

    Your hair looks great, I love it! Really suits you. I loved this series of Sherlock and enjoyed the last episode but wasn’t really sure about the ending, it felt a bit abrupt to me really. Have a lovely weekend x

    We’ve been loving A Series of Unfortunate Events on Netflix too, it’s such a great series (I need to order the next book too). Your hair looks fantastic, I really need to do something with my hair.

    I love when I return to a book I’ve previously read, and come away with my feelings about it only intensified – you’ve made me excited for my reread of The Night Circus later on in the year! The new hair looks great; it really suits you! I love the new quite you’ve hung, but also love the original you said you had too. Seeing motivational words daily is great for drumming them into you!

    I hope you and the family have a great weekend… It sounds like you need a relaxing one!

    Your busy week sounds the complete opposite of mine (far too quiet). I loved sherlock too. Although the third episode was not my favourite, I enjoyed it still and loved the series overall. Love your hair too.

    We haven’t watched the final episode of Sherlock yet but I’m hoping for a pretty big finish! The Night Circus has been on my reading list for so long but I’ve never got round to picking it up…I hear such good things about it though. Your new hair also looks gorgeous 🙂

  • Angela Webster - January 20, 2017 reply

    Your new colour looks lovely, it really suits your complexion. I think I’m going to concentrate on buying nice clothes and shoes instead of toys for the children’s birthdays this year. They have so many toys it’s silly. I’m in two minds about watching the new unfortunate events series I might give the first episode a go. Have a lovely weekend x

    Ah I’m so glad to hear you love The Night Circus so much – I’ve had it on my Kindle for ages and haven’t got round to reading it yet and I haven’t heard anyone else mention it – so I’m excited to start it now! I mentioned a book in my Little Loves similar to the brand one (but more on Instagram), and I very nearly bought that one too! I’ve never heard of Alessia Cara before, but I asked Alexa (ha!) to play her whilst I was reading your lovely post and I really like it – very easy to listen to. Love your hair! xx

    Your little E looks super cool in her denim jacket – love it! She looks like she’s rocking it too 🙂 I bet you’re glad to have this birthday parties behind you. I love birthdays but all of ours come at once so I know how exhausting it is. Loving your hair so much! Not sure it would suit everyone but it really looks good on you. Have a super weekend. xx

So thanks for always keeping me in the loop. Love love did I say it LOVE your copper red hair. Wish I could be trendy and change my hair. You look amazing.

    Looks like a lovely week. I think the replacement quote is such a good one especially for January! Even I’ve been tempted by the series of unfortunate events series and I’m also glad they’ve replaced Jim Carey as that was what I didn’t like about the film, I loved the books/film as a kid. Hair is looking lovely 🙂

    Love your hair, it really suits you. I keep meaning to watch Sherlock, we haven’t watched any though so I would need to start at the beginning. I’m going to have to check out a series of unfortunate events with my 9 and 6 year olds.

    Love, love, loveeee the hair! It really suits you. I’m ashamed to say that I really need to watch Sherlock from the beginning and my hubby had tried so many times to get me to watch it and I just haven’t. I love E’s outfit too, just a bit jealous x

  • Lauren Belle du Brighton - January 22, 2017 reply

    New venture – very exciting! Hope it’s going well! Love that jacket, it does suit her! I have coppery ombre too, such a fun way to brighten your look up without going full on red head, as that takes so much upkeep if you’re not blessed with being a natural redhead!

    I am like you and all partied out. This week has been a blur of parties, birthdays and lots and lots of cake. I could honestly sleep for a week. I love you hair Morgana, and you totally suit it. My daughter would also love the denim jacket. Best of luck with your new venture and looking forward to hearing all about it x

    I love your hair, looks fab, and E’s denim jacket is so cute. How good was Sherlock? I loved it, hubby wasn’t watching so went to bed and I have to admit to being a bit happy I got to watch it with no distractions. Such a great series (you can definitely call it a series!) xx

    I love the new hair colour it looks amazing. I’ve had to skip past the watched section as I haven’t started on sherlock Season 4 yet and don’t want any spoilers!

  • Naomi - January 25, 2017 reply

    Loving the hair too! It looks really fresh and funky and suits you. I have become a bit fan-girl over Sherlock and am a bit gutted it’s ending. I’ve really enjoyed the last series although there were some serious plot holes. Glad to see you’re enjoying How to style your brand too – it was my ‘Read’ choice last week!
