Davina’s no sugar flapjacks, The Wrong Knickers and HAIM #littleloves

Welcome to this weeks Little Loves post!

Thank you to all the lovely bloggers who’ve joined in so far this year, I love reading all the posts and look forward to catching up with this week’s ones.

Read

I mentioned last week that I picked up The Wrong Knickers by Bryony Gordon, well I’ve finished it already, I literally couldn’t put it down! It’s a great light read and is super funny, I really recommend it.

I mentioned on twitter how much I was loving the book and I may have fangirled a little when Bryony Gordon tweeted me back…!

 

Watched

We took the girls out for a drink last Friday night and whisked them off to the cinema to see Big Hero 6 the new Pixar film. We all absolutely loved it, one of the best kids films I’ve seen in a long time and a very welcome change from Frozen!

– The Secret Life of Four Year Olds

Knowing that a lot of my #littleloves linker uppers have small children I doubt I’ll be the only one to mention this programme. Having a four year old myself this was obviously essential viewing! It was fantastic to get a little insight into the way the children interact with one another at this age, especially without adults around. I’d love to be a fly on the wall at E’s preschool.

 

Wore

My eldest has been wearing a few bits from my shop recently – I swear I’m going to have to get a lock for my stock room!

Here she is wearing her Ryder L geek glasses and braces

I’ve been living in my Topshop ‘coatigan’ (thanks Em for the correct terminology 😉 ) this week. It’s just so cosy!

I’ve also been wearing my fantastic new all singing all dancing moisturiser from Green People – the full review will be up here on Sunday.

 

 

Heard

I’ve got a couple of great tracks to share with you this week, the first is Calvin Harris’ new one that features HAIM

and I couldn’t help share this cover of Taylor Swift’s Shake it Off by Charlie XCX, it definitely has some punk undertones and really reminds me of Karen O and the Yeah Yeah Yeahs, I would imagine she’s a big influence of Charlie XCX. I know it’s a cover that has divided people, it’s bit like Marmite, if you know what I mean?

Made

davina no sugar flapjacks

I found the recipe for Davina’s no sugar flapjacks and gave them a go, I can report they are super easy to make and really yummy. You can see the recipe for yourself here – Davina’s no sugar flapjacks Red Online

 

and lastly..

I’ve been thinking about giving vlogging ago and filming myself chatting about my Little Loves choices. What do you think? Is this something that you might watch? I’m so out of touch with the whole vlogging thing really!

I don’t know about you but I’m far too old for school girl politics and game playing, whether it’s online or in real life, so without further ado I’ll end with this week’s quote.

    Oh do you know what, I was going to start vlogging and I was going to start of with a #littlelove as I really didn’t know how or where to start! haha… I watched the secret life of four year olds and at first I watched in horror but I eased into it and wished they were doing more episodes! very interesting.. Going to make the flapjacks, look yummy! x

  • Natalie - February 13, 2015 reply

    Every week I love to read your little loves! I always feel mine are so repetitive (hello lattes) lol.

    I love how you read a lot, I really want to make (or find) more time for myself as I love reading, but to also include getting lost in some fiction as well as my blogger guides/ parenting books! Ah gutted I miss that programme! Really wanted to watch it as my eldest is four, will have to get it in catch up. I also heard that version of Taylor swift! It’s exactly how you say, like marmite, I think it’s one if those songs where you have to be in that mood to enjoy, funky too! I use to love the song ‘date with the night’ by the “YYYeah’s”!

    Those flapjacks -I need to try. I’m really trying to cut sugar at the minute, difficult though as I’m Breastfeeding, not eating enough or drinking enough so my body just craves crap! Or it thinks it needs it! I love flapjack…

    I think vlogging would be ace! I wish I had the confidence (and amazing hair do like yours!) to do it.. Go for it my dear!! Love that quote too. X

  • Life at the Little Wood - February 13, 2015 reply

    Oh I’d love to see you vlogging! Do it, definitely! I tried once and uploaded it and immediately deleted it again 🙂 I’m so awkward on camera! I love watching other people though and think you’d be brilliant at it lovely! I love that quote at the end of your little loves. I feel this way too, absolutely. I’m maybe a bit naive, but I do generally try to see the best in people and encourage them too. I think you can suss very quickly who is genuine and who isn’t though, can’t you?! As always, I loved reading this M xx ps. Noo is my fashion icon! 🙂

  • jenny - February 13, 2015 reply

    DO IT! I absolutely love the idea of you vlogging your little loves posts each week for sure! What a great idea. You would be brilliant at it too! Love that Noo srutts your stock from your store she is the perfect model! Trendy and fierce! Thanks for hosting lovely lets do coffee pronto! 🙂 #littleloves

  • Emma Kershaw - February 13, 2015 reply

    Those flapjacks look amazing! I’d love to see you vlogging your Little Loves, I think you should definitely do it 🙂 xxx

  • Louisa - February 13, 2015 reply

    I love the Calvin Harris tune, it’s very catchy. The glasses and braces Noo is wearing is ace. I’m going to check your stuff out for my girls.I do enjoy watching other people’s vlogs. I’m too akward in front of the camera myself (unless I’ve had a jar) but the ones I’ve seen have been really engaging. x

  • Karen - February 13, 2015 reply

    That quote at the end?? I absolutely love it! I will be trying out those flapjacks too, we love a flapjack around here and ones with less sugar would definitely be a good thing 🙂

  • Katie @mummydaddyme - February 13, 2015 reply

    I’d love to see your vlog Morgana, I am awful so could never do one myself! And I love that quote! xx

  • Esther @ Inside Out and About - February 13, 2015 reply

    If the thought of vlogging doesn’t terrify you then do it! I know it’s definitely not for me, but I do enjoy watching them. How cool does your eldest look? Seriously. I would definitely raid my Mum’s stock if she owned a shop! I love that quote and I definitely have a thing for genuine people! Happy weekend! x

  • Mel @mydaysni - February 13, 2015 reply

    Ah yes, genuine people are sometimes harder to find than expected. Vlog if you want to I say. Whatever makes you happy and all that! Hope you have a fab weekend xx

  • Vikki Holness - February 13, 2015 reply

    Honestly, i’ve been loving the items your shop stocks. Already got my eye on some geek glasses and a unicorn necklace. Oh and the bow tie as you well know! I have that programme saved on the planner ready to watch this evening when boys are in bed, i find documentaries like that fascinating and know i’m in for a laugh after reading everyone’s posts/comments this week! Have a lovely weekend babe and thank you for hosting! xxx #LittleLoves

  • Glasgow Mummy - February 13, 2015 reply

    You should definitely give the vlogging a go. I love it (as does my son!). I find it rather time consuming… filming the video and then all the editing, but the more I vlog, the more I learn and the quicker it gets!

  • A Cosy Cup of Life - February 13, 2015 reply

    I think you vlogging your #littleloves would be great – go for it! I’ve heard really good thinks about Big Hero 6, was thinking about taking Lucas to see it.
    The flapjacks look really yummy!
    Hope you and yours have a lovely weekend xx

  • lifewithmunchers - February 13, 2015 reply

    Great round of little loves this week. I’d be raiding that stock room too if I were her age (although I wouldn’t look that cute!)
    I can’t decide about the vlogging. I just think it’d be another thing to try and master. Although you have the vlogging queen next door!

    Hope you all have a lovely weekend! x

  • Alice - February 13, 2015 reply

    Ooh I love Live Lounge! Always good to see a song mixed up a bit 🙂 go for it with the vlogging, why not?! I’m sure you’d be great 🙂 have a lovely weekend xx

  • Lauryn - February 14, 2015 reply

    Yum, those flapjacks look delish! Your daughter is so cute in your shop’s stuff, maybe she can be your first model! 🙂 Have a good week!

  • Triona McKee - February 14, 2015 reply

    Please vlog, I would love to add your vlogs to my list if youtube nightly watches! The book sounds great! The flapjacks look delicious! Hope ye hug us have a great weekend xxx

  • FromMummytoMum - February 15, 2015 reply

    Love those braces, I have some like that for my daughter, but already attached to the skirt, never thought to buy separate ones! I need to try Davina’s flapjacks!! Thanks for linking the recipe!

  • Not A Frumpy Mum - February 16, 2015 reply

    I’m loving your book recommendations, I really need to get some more reading and you always seem to have a great one on the go! I’m taking O to see Big Hero 6 tomorrow, very excited as it’s his first cinema trip so good to hear you liked it!

    Have a great week lovely xx

  • School Gate Style - February 16, 2015 reply

    So so late to the game this week but it was a technically challenging weekend with no wifi! Better late than never eh? Loving yours this week as always. Definitely going to try the flapjacks and I’m off now to listen to Calvin Harris’ new tune – love him! Ax

  • mamasvib - February 16, 2015 reply

    This is a really lovely #littleloves post. Firstly, I NEED those geek glasses your daughter is one cook little chick! My hubby is a massive Haim fan- so will need to check he has heard these. And, in honour of that fab quote I am going to be honest and say YES! Some people should clog and some shouldn’t – you totally should!! You would be wonderful I am sure! Just DO it xxx (i am not brave enough too ever – I hate even having picture taken!)
