I’m afraid our house, well namely, myself and my youngest girl, were struck now by a horrible sickness bug over the weekend and much of the week. This has meant that work and any creativity was put on the back burner and now, of course, I’m playing catch up. One thing that has made this week better is the sunshine! As I’m typing this there are blue skies and a bright sun shining down, I can almost feel the Spring coming and Winter (finally) leaving us.
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’m making slow progress with The Miniaturist and thinking about shelving it and trying something new. I’m intrigued but so busy and it’s just not hooked me in enough to make the effort. I popped into Waterstones and picked up these two new books, The Bricks That Built The Houses by Kate Tempest, and The Portable Veblen by Elizabeth Mckenzie. I’ve not started either yet but looking forward to giving them a try.
I stumbled across this new release on Netflix and devoured the whole season while I was ill, Greenleaf, a programme centred around the Greenleaf family and their sprawling Memphis mega-church. It’s full of secrets and lies and I found myself absolutely hooked into the drama. It’s executively produced by Oprah Winfrey and premiered on her television channel first last year.
I’ve made a change and decided to rebrand by MumBoss section. I’m fully aware of how contentious the word is and although I meant it as empowering it’s ended up putting putting off, so, it’s now called Start Up and my MumBoss interviews are Start Up Stories. You can read all about the change here.
As you can imagine, for most of this week I’ve been in comfy clothes due the dreaded sickness bug. I have been loving this coat sent over from Target Dry, though – perfect for the school run. You can see more of it and the girls new coats here.
Before the bug hit us I picked up a couple of things from H&M when I popped into town last Friday, one of them was this top.
I also channeled KA from Life As Our Little Family and picked up a silver pleated skirt in the sale. I’m going to wear it tonight when the mister and I head out to a Gin Festival, so you can expect some outfit photos of that one next week.
The Women of Indie playlist on Spotify is one of my favourites, it’s full of new artists as well as more established indie musicians and bands.
While listening to it, Maps by Yeah Yeah Yeahs popped up and of course that sent me down a Yeah Yeah Yeahs rabbit hole! I love Karen O and spent many nights requesting her songs at the indie club while at university. I would have loved to see them live.
As you probably are aware it was International Women’s Day this week, and I was reminded of this fantastic quote from Ellizabeth Gilbert
