13 Reasons Why, the start of the holidays and fun at the park #LittleLoves

The Easter holidays have begun! Goodbye school runs and hello lazy mornings! Goodbye time to work and hello fun-work juggle! We’ve had a lovely couple of days together but as you can see from two Little Loves posts in a row I haven’t had much time to blog. I’ve got lots of good posts in the pipeline, I just need to make some time to finish them all off.

Are you ready for more? Grab a cuppa and enjoy my Little Loves, don’t forget you can read lots of other bloggers’ Little Loves by clicking on the linky at the end.

 I’ve really been enjoying The Bricks That Built The Houses and I’m sadly coming to the end of it. Thanks to the girls happily playing together in the park on Thursday I had a good couple of hours to read (while glancing up every couple of minutes to check on them obviously). It’s just a shame it was so cold!

Thankfully the cafe serves great coffee, so that kept me warm.

Blog post wise I came across a post by Digital Mums that I really related to,

10 Holiday Hacks for Working Mums

It’s great post full of tips from mums that work from home, definitely worth a read if you fall into that bracket. Have a look here.

 

watched

We finally saw Beauty and the Beast last weekend! Of course it was just as good as everyone has said it is, my two were mesmerised.

Television wise we gave The Good Fight a try, it’s a spin off from The Good Wife and if I’m honest I wasn’t sure what to expect. I didn’t know how it would work with out Alicia, but I was pleasantly surprised and found myself drawn into the storyline. I have a feeling that this could be a good new series.

As for Netflix, 13 Reasons Why has been my complete obsession. I’ve squeezed in moments to watch it whenever possible and binged my way through the whole thing. I blame this for why I’ve not blogged at all! It is absolutely gripping, if rather depressing!

 

MAde

I’m afraid that this section is woefully under represented, but then, that’s not unusual for me! All I can say really is that I ‘made’ the house clean and tidy for the viewings we’ve had this week. I know, such a ropey link. Oh and I did make these cinnamon swirls at the weekend, when I say ‘make’ all I really did was slice the dough and pop them in the oven!

 

wore

I picked up a couple of bits in Topshop this week, I know Topshop! A place I’ve hardly been in since hitting my thirties. I’ve been in desperate need of some jeans so I ventured in and browsed the Petite section. I was elated to find that I could fit back into my pre-children jean size! So of course I had to buy said jeans, and a top fell into my hands on the way to the till too.

I went for a pair of black high-waisted ‘Joni’s, £36

This is the top I bought and if you follow me on Instagram you’ve probably already spotted it.

 

.heard

With the sun making more of an appearance I’ve noticed a change in my music and I’m definitely going for lighter and more fun tunes. 

I saw them in London a few years ago and they always remind me of summer days.

Of course I’ve still been loving podcasts and Hashtag Authentic continues to be my favourite. Something that really struck me in this weeks one about imposter syndrome and feeling the fear was thinking more about the feeling of self doubt and recognising it. What I took away from it was the two forms of fear – the fear of stepping into something big and the ‘monster under the bed’ kind. The first kind is as Sara says ‘excitement with a different dress on’ and I loved that expression. It definitely pin points how I feel about moving house.

 

and lastly

 

Here are my favourites from this week’s #LittleLoves community on Instagram,

    Glad your house viewings are going well. It’s such a stressful time. Love the sound of beauty and the beast. I’ve not been in topshop for years but those clothes are lovely. It’s such a shame the weather has turned chilly again. Sounds lovely reading in the park. I’m still in the chase them round the park or pushing swings stage!

    I’ve been holding off starting 13 Reasons Why as I want to read the book first but maybe I will have to give it a go. I always really love the bench in the park, how cute with the little cut out heart! Hope you enjoy the rest of your Easter break, we finish today and I can’t flipping wait!

    Heading straight over for that holiday hack blog post definitely needed here-nothing gets done when there’s no preschool. House viewings how exciting, hopefully you find someone soon so you can get into your new place quickly. Love that top-I haven’t been in top shop since my teens (unfortunately im a bit too curvy for that shop)! I’ve been struggling to keep up with all the blog posts-I have a draft folder full but so little is getting completed and published! Have a lovely easter x

    Oo I love the ‘What if…’ top, you can’t beat stripes! I’ve not heard of 13 Reasons Why, so I’m heading over to Netflix now to find out more 🙂 #LittleLoves

    I can’t wait to see Beauty and the Beast – still a few more weeks for me. I love that top. I never think to look in TopShop as it’s full of scarily young thin people!

  • Sadie - April 7, 2017 reply

    Oh, Friendly Fires takes me back! Jump in the Pool is a great summer song too.

    Those cinnamon swirls look yum 🙂 Thanks for hosting!

    Hello to the lazy mornings indeed! I also saw Beauty and the Beast and it was amazing, I want to watch it again!

  • Emma - April 7, 2017 reply

    Ooh, great ‘watched’ selection! I really need to read and watch 13 Reasons Why and The Good Fight is next on my list when I’ve caught up on the season finale of This Is Us. I loved The Good Wife and have high hopes.

  • Mum Reinvented - April 8, 2017 reply

    Love your made section – it’s like something I’d say! I still need to watch Beauty & The Beast, as the teen has already seen it and the little one isn’t interested I fear it’ll be a watch when it’s on sky kinda film. Love the new clothes, don’t think I’ve been in Top Shop since I was about 15! Have a lovely Easter break with the girls x

    Love the ‘What If’ top- it’s been a while since I stepped into Top Shop. I’m enjoying The Good Fight too, and yes with a bit of initial scepticism. Hope the weather warms up for more book reading in the park! x

  • Sarah | Boo Roo and Tigger Too - April 9, 2017 reply

    We managed to see Beauty and the Beast too, it was beautiful I can’t wait for it to come onto Blu-Ray. I’ll have to read the post about hacks for working from home as I’m struggling at the moment to get a balance

  • Naomi - April 9, 2017 reply

    I can’t remember the last time I went into Topshop, but I love that black and white jumper. You’ve recommended several TV shows recently that I’ve never heard of – must add them to my ‘to watch’ list xx

  • Helena - April 10, 2017 reply

    It’s funny how things just appear in our hands before getting to the tills. I’ve a bit of a sweet tooth so a few tasty treats have landed in mine! Thanks for hosting #LittleLoves
