Confetti walls, being an introvert and Cold Feet #Littleloves

Well hello there Friday, back again so soon? 

I’ve had a lovely if not a little stressful week this week. It’s been full of friends and family and fun work experiences too. I feel like when this Sunday rolls around I’m definitely in need of a slow day. I’m thinking roast dinner and then a snuggle watching a family film. 

Here we go then, are you ready for some positivity? 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.



keeper of lost things

I’m about half way through [amazon_textlink asin=’1473635489′ text=’The Keeper Of Lost Things’ template=’ProductLink’ store=’butwhymummywhy-21′ marketplace=’UK’ link_id=’ce1a45dd-af42-11e7-bda6-a1816dd576b8′]* now and I’m really enjoying it. It’s the perfect book for me right now. I love it when I read it but it’s not a page turner so I can pick it up and put it down to fit in when I have set aside time.

Blog wise, here are a few favourites..

How To Be Productive When You’re Really Not Feeling It -Simple & Season

I found this to be such a helpful blog post to read this week. When you’re self employed it can be tough at times to keep focused and motivated. In blogging in particular there’s no one checking and breathing down your neck (well, unless it’s commissioned work) and it can be tough trying to be creative when you feel in a rut.

My Girls Shared Bedroom Tour, An Ice Cream Themed Room – Mummy Daddy Me

I’ve always loved Katie’s interiors style and this bedroom is no exception. All the cute prints and wall decals, I just love Katie’s attention to detail.



First Dates!

A lovely girl that was in my youth group was on this week and it was a joy to watch, she’s not changed a bit. If you get a chance to watch it look out for Abi, she is fab and so inspirational.

Youtube wise I loved this video from Fritha. As a fellow introvert I could relate to everything she shared. 

So Friday to Sunday we had the Harvest Festival, a Wedding, and then a Baptism! What a jam packed weekend. Here are a few iPhone snaps..

TV wise I just have to give a shot out to Cold Feet. I worry it’s got a little lost amid the influx of Autumn television but it needs recognition for this season in particular. It’s dealt with some huge topics with such sensitivity and it always feels like you are catching up with old friends. Love it.

The mister had an op last week so has been off work and feeling very bored at home. I took pity on him on Tuesday as we went to the cinema while the girls were at school. What a treat! We saw Blade Runner 2049 and while I’ll wax lyrical over the cinematography and the set and everything that was so visually creative about the dystopian future portrayed it was in my humble (and I’m sure much contested) opinion rather too long. The plot was simple and easily guessed and for me just not engaging enough to warrant 163 minutes.



I’m trying to work on both my girls bedrooms at the moments, just adding bits here and there to try and bring together the looks they both want. With E’s room it is, of course, all about the bright colours and the unicorns.

I’ve done a little feature wall at the head of her bed and I’m so pleased with how it’s turned out. I ordered the rainbow dots from the Etsy store – StickersbyAnita and they’re just vinyl stickers so super easy to apply. The awesome print is from Paper Joy and was kindly sent over by Kerry as she is the next feature for my Start Up Stories. Check back here on Sunday to read her interview and get a 30% off code for her Etsy store.

We’ve got an IKEA delivery arriving at the weekend with a new desk for N as well as furniture for the office so I’m super excited about that.


I had another shoot day with Robyn this week and it was a fashion one this time. Eek. I’ve always shied away from women’s fashion style posts just from being too shy and embarrassed. But, I’m being brave and stepping out of my comfort zone and giving it more of a go. It definitely helps working with a fab photographer, Robyn totally puts me at ease and we have a good laugh while we work.

I’ve been sent some clothes over from the gorgeous people at Joanie Clothing (you know how much I love them, from this post, amongst others) and I’m desperate to share the photos Robyn took.

I’ve also been using this for the last couple of weeks after a gorgeous friend got it for my birthday, Liz Earle Hot Cloth Cleanser*

It’s gorgeous and definitely lives up to all the hype surrounding it.



I loved listening to Sam’s latest podcast with Holly Tucker (one of the founders of Not On The High Street), it’s really inspirational and Holly gives so much good advice to small business owners. I got loads out of it. Have a listen here – Small and Mighty Podcast, Season 2, Episode 1 – Holly Tucker MBE


Music wise we’ve been having a few trips down memory lane and listening to bands and artists that were our favourites in our twenties (and beyond). This band I actually first discovered when I was seventeen, when I first heard their album Morning View. My love from them grew more on my gap year being on a team with fellow Incubus fans.

And for the more visual among you.. 😉



and lastly

We’re hosting a little belated house warming tomorrow which I’m super excited about. Just need to get over the pre-party anxiety first though – any one else get that, or is it just me?

If you’re on Instagram and want to join in with the Little Loves community on there, 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’ll share my favourites on Stories each Friday.

    Wow girl what an almighty little loves you have been busy this week. Props off to you. Need a little down weekend of snuggles and chill time. Love love what you have done with the feature wall looks amazing. Can’t wait to see the changes you have in your house since I last was there I bet it’s so lovely. Sad to miss the party as we are off to France today. Thinking of you. See you soon. #littleloves

    I’m not surprised you are ready for a lazy Sunday, it sounds like you’ve packed so much in this week. That wall looks amazing, so bright and cheerful. I just followed the link to Joanie clothing and oh my goodness I’m in love ! I’ve bookmarked so I can go and make a wishlist. Have a lovely relaxing weekend x

  4. October 13, 2017 / 9:51 am

    Oh wow, you did have a busy weekend!! I love first dates and Abi was really lovely. Some people on the show come across so badly but she was so nice! x

  5. October 13, 2017 / 2:09 pm

    ah thank you so much for featuring me! I also was totally nodding my head along with what you said about Cold Feet, I watched the episode I think you’re talking about last night on catching and was bawling. They dealt with it in such a real way, it was just so perfect I think, sad and complicated and realistic and sensitive. Loved it xx

  6. October 13, 2017 / 2:21 pm

    Wow what a fabulous week! You’ll def deserve that rest on Sunday and I’m sure the party will be great. Some fab reads and watches for us to head over to as well this week. Have a lovely weekend xx

  7. October 13, 2017 / 7:11 pm

    What a blooming great little loves, for some reason your photos aren’t loading for me so I’ll pop back to see them. Love the idea of your photo shoot! Have a great party night and if all else fails lock the bathroom door and put your headphones in x

  8. October 14, 2017 / 12:46 pm

    What a busy week for you and I think you definitely need a chill day tomorrow. Hope your little party goes well tonight, and love what you have done in the girls bedroom. I know exactly what you mean about Cold Feet. The episode where they tackled abortion was really emotive, and brilliantly acted by everybody, including the young actors. That reminds me that we have last nights to catch up on x

  9. October 15, 2017 / 5:50 pm

    Hope the housewarming was amazing, Sounds like such a busy week, I love the bedroom it looks so great and unique which I love. I try to make our home a little unique as it just feels more us x

  10. October 15, 2017 / 11:36 pm

    OMG I adore the dotty bedroom design, thats so contemporary but cute!

  11. October 16, 2017 / 11:26 am

    Wow, what a busy week you have had.

    I am excited to read about the Liz Earle as I treated myself to a mini set to try but as of yet have not, so think I shall now.

    I am so pleased to have linked up this week, I have missed joining in xx

  12. October 16, 2017 / 10:25 pm

    LOVE that wall in E’s room, it’s gorgeous! I think this season of Cold Feet is one of the best yet, it’s such a good watch. Hope your housewarming went well and hubby is better after his op x

  13. October 17, 2017 / 10:13 am

    I’m popping over to read that productivity blog post thank you! I love the little peek at the unicorn bedroom too – my daughters both love unicorns!

  14. October 18, 2017 / 11:11 am

    Thanks for linking to the post about productivity – it was just what I needed to read this morning!
    Hope you have had a slightly calmer week so far! Thanks for hosting #LittleLoves xxx

  15. October 18, 2017 / 8:31 pm

    I love the dots and print, what a gorgeous room! I keep meaning to pick up a copy of The Keeper of Lost Things as I’ve seen it around a lot and would love to give it a try. I hope you’re having a good week x

  16. October 20, 2017 / 10:09 pm

    Oooh, I always think it’s the ultimate luxury going to the cinema on a weekday, I have no idea why it feels like ultimate escapism. As yes, I have to admit the only thing I’m looking forward to this weekend is a fantastic roast (although we may leave the home to find it).
    I am loving the dots! We went with larger ones (no spatial awareness) and I think I have small dot envy.
    I hope you’ve had a fab week. x
